I love this! Carnivores & Destructors is a new, limited-edition Morrissey fanzine put together by Adam Krause at Pau Wau Publications in Brooklyn. It makes me happy to know that the fanzine is not obsolete! They had a Michael Jackson fanzine, too, but it’s out of print, unfortunately.
(Did anyone else used to subscribe to the long-defunct, brilliantly-named Morri’zine in the late ’80s/early ’90s? I still have every issue.)
Now, about the changes around here…
Yes! There may be a few more tweaks over the next couple of days, but I have finally given Door Sixteen a design overhaul. Aside from the design, these are some of the new features you might have noticed:
Featured blogs. Following a discussion about the effectiveness of blogrolls on Twitter a few nights ago, I decided to do away with mine completely. By featuring just four or five blogs every month, I’m hoping to bring a little more attention to each one rather than letting them get lost in a sea of links. (Check out my October selections!)
Social media sharing buttons. I resisted adding buttons to facilitate sharing posts on Twitter and Facebook (and some other places I don’t know anything about, like Digg and StumbleUpon), but the time has come for me to give in. I use Twitter constantly, and I know I like when the blogs that I read have these buttons (URL shortening is built in!), so…there you go.
Gravatar support. If you’d like your image to show up next to your comments on blogs instead of a yellow dot, visit the Gravatar website and get yourself a globally recognized avatar. This is entirely optional, of course, but it’s fun. Your avatar will show on any Gravatar-enabled blog.
Threaded comments. I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner! Now I can reply directly to specific questions in the comments, and you can reply directly to other commenters, too.
Wow, I feel like I’m finally caught up with all of the latest features…from 2008! Please let me know if something is looking weird or not working right (and I’m not talking about Fritz).
