    my favorite zine, black webmaster, 

    has chosen me to guest edit their next deal

    and while we were chatting they said

    name the top ten coolest things that youve done because of the busblog

    and i said, the busblog is old school, how about 10 sweet things we did on LAist today

    and they said bro we’re a zine, we’re the epitome of old school. please?

    so since they used the magic word here’s a short list for them and no one else
