The Snowflakes Issue is currently distributed at Peace (Minnehaha), Five Watt (Nicollet), Riverview, and Royal Grounds in Minneapolis. It is printed on paper that is certified as responsibly sourced by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
This issue features a lengthy self-interview, “Exclusive: Kent talks Super Bowl With Kentself”; a Valentine’s-themed Fact & Fiction; two new Kentphorisms; the 5th “Resistance Corner”; and an update on the Kent spinoff Nell. The top story, though, is, “Amateur parenting advice: snowflakes are fun.”
Update: This issue, the Head Injury Issue, should now be considered only available through the website. Although there may still be a few copies floating around in Minneapolis Distro Points, I’m officially recalling the remainder of the local copies. The rap is a statement that is 100% against racism, but the blend of cultural elements got under some people’s skin to an extent that I need to pull the issue as “Too Hot For Local.” It is what it is; and lesson learned re: comfort at the local level. The rap is returning to its original title and form, trusting my instincts on what I wrote.
- The physical copies of this issue that are currently distributed at Peace (Minnehaha), Five Watt (Nicollet), Riverview, and Royal Grounds in Minneapolis are printed on paper that is certified as responsibly sourced and 30% post-consumer recycled by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
- Every issue moving forward until the like-stable-genius-in-chief is out of office will contain an installment of “Resistance Corner,” which first appeared at the same time Kent (first founded as a quarterly in 1999, after which it quickly became a sporadic) transitioned to a more sustainable weekly in December 2017.
