TOP SECRET

Photo by Joshua Zucker

It is not official yet, but the goal is always to find a cheaper spot to up our page count and up our circulation. Right now we are doing some tests with a new print shop. Every print shop has their own ways of doing things and this print shop needs us to beef up which means more photos from more photographers. WIN – WIN. If everything goes well the new issue will have 120 pages, 9 photographers, and an ISBN for distribution. Here’s an updated sneak peak.

TED PUSHINSKY

We met Ted around 2004 I think. He rang our doorbell one day and said, “Hi, I’d like to submit photos to Hamburger Eyes.” It was a trip, how did he even know our address? And then we got some photos and he blew our minds. He hung out around 24th St where we lived and we quickly became friends. It has a been an honor to work with him all these years on photo projects, but even more just to hang out with him and cruise. He was a great friend to everyone and we will miss him very much.

Rest in Peace, Ted. We love you.

There is a show of his photos up on 24th st right now that I was happy to help work on, and there will be a community memorial for him next week.

Saturday, Feb. 24 • 3 p.m. – 6p.m.
Acción Latina’s Juan R. Fuentes Gallery
2958 24th Street, San Francisco

17

This week marks Hamburger Eyes 17th Anniversary! Our first issue was published on February 14, 2001. We probably only realize that because we used to print the release date right on the cover of the first few issues. I feel honored to be able to work on this project for so long. Actually doesn’t feel like a “project” any more, just a way of life. Thank you to all the photographers and supporters to help us keep this thing going for so long.

Here’s a look back at all the stuff we put out : http://www.hamburgereyes.com/catalog/

And below is a look at the future. A sneak peak of Hamburger Eyes No. 32 to be released before the end of the month. In fact, we are having an anniversary sale to clear out some space and raise funds for it. Enter the discount code before checking out for 25% off everything.

UNPLUGGED

It’s done. I unplugged from the social media matrix. All the Hamburger Eyes accounts deleted. It feels good. I wasn’t planning to say much about it, especially since I deleted all my personal accounts last week and no one said anything, texted, or emailed me about it. But maybe I should say the main reason is that it just isn’t fun any more. Posting, liking, comments, DMs, hashtags, screenshots. Over it. The cons are starting to out weigh the pros. Not trying to run a campaign or a crusade or anything, just for me it is time to abort mission.

Yes it is very distracting and time consuming, but lots of things are. It’s the exploitation of the human brain that is getting sketchy. Zuckerberg openly admits to programming our behaviors. And then sells that data. He makes money while we get lost in algorithms of fomo and ego and vanity and dopamine hits.

What about the business? What about traffic? We get more website hits from Google than social media. And we don’t really need thousands of random people following us, we just need a couple hundred legit ones. Maybe over thinking it? What about connecting? It is nice to connect with old and new friends especially in other cities for sure, but email works too. Books and zines work even better.

This all sounds very serious but it’s not. I think it’s going to be very chill. We will keep this blog and plan to update it constantly, so stay following us here and subscribe to our email list for all the classified info. You can unsubscribe at any time.

END OF THE BEGINNING

I’m over social media. There’s a hundred reasons to go and only a few reasons to stay. I’m slowly deleting each of the Hamburger Eyes accounts. Twitter and FB today. Tumblr soon. IG next, but since it’s the biggest one we will try to milk it and grow the email list. Gonna keep the YouTube account maybe.

So all updates will be here on the site and once a week a mailing list update. If you are not subscribed, do it today! You will get secret discounts, secret releases, secret invites to secret parties, secrets infinity.
