MicroSatan is a relatively new comedic art collective in the city of Houston, TX. When tragedy strikes, they’re there to show you the lighter side. Or make fun of you for being a total baby about it. They’ll be putting on a special edition of Good Evening with Conner & Billy for the fest this year, so be sure to catch it in the Theater at The Printing Museum!
ZFH: Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you’ll be showing at ZFH 2015!
MicroSatan: We are MicroSatan. No, we are not LEGION!! We hate those assholes! Thinking they’re all so great! A pack of drowning swine! Anyway, we’re just a comedic art collective that puts on comedy shows, podcasts, and publishes zines! We’ll have some issues of the MicroSatan Monthly Zine as well as items created by our individual members!
ZFH: What is the future of zines in this new and rapidly digitizing world?
MS: Zines will become PDF files that we download, print and staple/fold all by ourselves as DIY transitions into a phase of even further laziness. Eventually, the concept of DIY publishing will degrade into a process of one person telling you their idea for a zine and then having you make it yourself.
ZFH: Were you an analog to digital transition or were you a BB born in the tech age? How does technology and recent technological developments affect your zine-making practice?
MS: All members of MicroSatan routinely get calls from geriatric relatives with technological issues as we are all seen as the IT department of our respective families. What’s great about making zines with other tech savvy people is that we can email our materials to each other and never actually have to personally interact. None of us have even met each other and I have the sneaking suspicion that some of us do not even exist.
ZFH: What in your opinion is the best invention of the last 30 years?
MS: Condoms: No kids yet!
ZFH: What in your opinion is the worst invention of the last 30 years?
MS: Condoms: No feeling, ever!
ZFH: How will you best honor our cyber overlords?
MS: We will tithe with BitCoin that we have mined ourselves.
Haha, thanks MicroSatan! You always have us ROFLING…
