This week, The Burgundy Zine saw the release of the first zine! Woohoo. We wrapped this month up with a review of Jose Antonio Vargas’ book Dear America, Notes of an Undocumented Citizen, Chamomile by atlas, and with a look at what was going on in the world.

Weekly Recap

On Monday, we reviewed Vargas’ incredibly personal story of his life as an undocumented citizen in America, as told in his novel Dear America, Notes of an Undocumented Citizen.

Shortly thereafter, the first issue of The Burgundy Zine, More Money, First Issues was released. The entire zine is available here.

You may also download the PDF version for free on Google Drive. If you are interested in purchasing a physical copy, please refer to the contact page.

On Tuesday, we continued my indie-obsession by tuning into Chamomile by atlas.

On Wednesday, we took a look at what was going on in the world – from shutdowns to sweethearts to polar vortex’ and Australian wildfires.

Going Forward

Going forward, expect to hear a lot about the second issue of The Burgundy Zine about creative and romantic passions. It is scheduled for release on Feb. 28 and submissions are encouraged.

In the meantime, why don’t you give the first issue some love?

Be sure to stick around for routine installments of Tune-In Tuesdays, What in the World Wednesdays, as well as other content.

Don’t forget to enjoy the Super Bowl, whether you’re a fan of football or not. If you’re interested in finding out more about the cannabis commercial CBS refused to air this Sunday, The Burgundy Zine’s got you (and the story) covered.
