Ziney people
« on: February 03, 2019, 03:54:03 PM »

How many people out there are ziney? By that, I mean people who are the type who'd write a zine.

I don't appear ziney at first glance, but deep down, I'm as ziney as they come.

You may have family members who are ziney. You may have some who are not very ziney, but accept others' zininess. You may have some who are too stodgy and unbending to ever accept people being ziney.

Be ziney!

Zines seem to very much (have) be(en) a Gen X thing. I don’t know of anyone my age that has been interested in them.

These days forums and blogs serve the purpose that zines did in the 80s and 90s.

Zines aren’t necessarily digital.

I would have been ziney if I’d been born 5 or 10 years earlier.

Didn't REM do a song about this? "Ziney Happy People?"

Glad I'm not the only one who thought of that song.

I also remember REM guest-starring on a TV show, and one of the characters asking them "Am I a shiny happy person?" and them answering simply "No."  I could have sworn it was part of the Simpsons episode Homer the Moe, but I can't find that interaction anywhere in the script.  Hmmm.....

"Zine" is short for "magazine," so it's pronounced "zeen."

I just assumed it was "publish scenes," but "zines" makes a lot more sense.

True, but seeing the word "ziney" with the word "people" just begged for that one-liner.

At the risk of stomping the joke to death...I just don't even look at the word "zine" and think of it rhyming with "shine."

I also don't look at "GIF" and think it's pronounced "jif."

I assumed it rhymed with shine, even after looking up the definition and finding out it comes from magazine.

I've always pronounced it with the soft "g." Like "GIraFfe."

I knew how "'zine" is pronounced and actually read a few issues of "The Last Word" online back in the day.
