I can't seem to find any subscription information. Am I missing it? Do you not offer subscriptions? If not, are there plans to? I would strongly consider getting one for myself, as I'm sure would many others.
How does one maintain a dedication to the weird and alt while 'growing up'/becoming an adult with a job and responsibilities? How do you stay inspired and curious?
I'm really hoping Nadya's open to talking about this. She's the true, undeterred, breadwinning powerhouse of our group-- she works an intensive corporate 9-5 job, and still has time to come home and write passionate love letters.
One thing I've wondered about before is the name. To me COILHOUSE has always felt like a perfectly fitting and appropriate name for the magazine/blog and sounds quite nice rolling off the tongue but is there a deeper thought process or meaning behind it?
Second, and more cliche, question: what do you think are the three most important qualities in a person?
Burroughs (who you referenced in the same post I quoted, I believe) is a constant source of inspiration to me. He gave up on writing for years, only to get back to it when, if memory serves, he was about forty. And even then, it's not like he was some glamorous superstar that lived "the life", yet he is thought of as a great man by many.
@Nadya-- Reading the list of your influences explains a lot and gives you tons of credibility in my opinion, and tells me that you are coming purely from a place of passion for the art form with your publishing intentions. Girl's Guide, Mondo, Ben Is Dead, all great vehicles for getting into the print underground. I've been a zine hound forever myself, being mainly obsessed with Cometbus these days, especially his forays into novelization.

(For all our jokes about catacombs and chain leashes) Ross is a free agent.
Does the mag pay for itself usually or is it more of an out-of-pocket labor of love, done for the sheer enjoyment of the creators? I'm hoping it's the former as I'm sure you do, but I know from experience (been in the same diy punk band for 15+years) that most people who are doing things that they love are not becoming millionaires off of doing so.
