…Fray keeps it true on a quarterly basis?


Fray is a quarterly series of independently produced books that are filled with true personal stories, articles and original art. Each one revolves around a central storytelling theme, and is about proving that extraordinary things happen to ordinary people.

It’s about finding that common thread that connects us all together. And it’s an invitation and a dare to get involved: What’s your story?

For a little history, Fray began as a website, where they presented individually designed, true first-person stories. It then evolved into a series of live storytelling events, Fray Days and Fray Cafes that took place all over the world and were attended by thousands of people. Now, the book phase that they’re currently in is their third evolution, and hopefully their best to date.

Fray Books

Their first issue was called ‘Busted’, and it was all about “true stories of getting caught in the act”. Their current issue, called Geek, is about “true stories of taking things too seriously” and features 60 pages of true stories, interviews and original art in full color, as well as a special pull-out centerfold.

Fray Geek Sale

In addition, they’re currently having a sale, and for just $35 plus shipping, you’ll get the first two issues, a limited edition Geek pocket protector, and two more issues in 2009.

If you’d like to participate in Fray, their next issue is called Sex & Death, and they’re taking submissions until January 31, 200, so you’ve got a limited amount of time to get something in.

Either way though, it’s definitely a unique format that bucks the trend of high quantity, ad supported printing, and with a bunch of very passionate people supporting it, it’s definitely worth checking out to see what you think.


…Vegan Etsy looks delicious?

If you’ve recently taken a vow of veganity, then you’ve probably discovered one thing: It’s hard.

Thankfully, for the veganites out there, there’s Vegan Etsy, a blog by a group of Etsy users who use the online shopping site to hawk their vegan wares.

Featuring interviews with shop owners, links to shops, tips, recipes, links, photos and more, it’s a treasure trove of useful vegan info.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Shred Or Die?

Shred Or Die

What Will Ferrell did for Funny Or Die, Tony Hawk is hoping to do for Shred Or Die.

As an action sports video site, SOD hopes to mix action sports and celebrity culture, including interviews with Lance Armstrong, Shaun White, Christian Slater, and Ryan Sheckler.

Users watch the user generate clips, and then vote that they should either “Shred” or “Die”, similar to Digg and Burry.

Are you ready?
