K Composite is brilliant.
Marni at Design Milk writes as his introduction of his interview of Scott Ritcher, creator of K Composite:
Scott Ritcher launched his now digitally glossy mag, K Composite, back when Macs were used mainly at Kinko’s, rented by the hour, and cameras still involved film. Essentially, it was a photocopied fanzine in which he featured interviews with his friends. While the medium has morphed, Ritcher’s vision remains razor sharp. Today, from his home base in Stockholm, Sweden, this Louisville, Kentucky-born Renaissance guy continues to construct honest portraits of everyday people.
The entire interview is fantastic, but Scott Ritcher wins me over with his answer to the question, "Any words of advice to people who hesitate to try new things?":
This is easy. Next time you and your friends come up with a great idea, saying, “Wouldn’t it be cool if…” get off your dumb ass and do it. Take the idea and make it happen. Now!
My mother sometimes worries about the risks I take. I tell her, “You can worry about what might happen, or you can make things happen.” If we’re not doing something valuable with our time, then why are we here?
