a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Good to see your new issue is out. My latest Ken Chronicles was completed on Friday & I could send you one if you'd still like to trade.
the newest issue of Deafula is out, hooray! #3 is about spokesperson anxiety, identity politics in deaf culture, how to take a relay call, and a list of the top five awesome things about being deaf (ever wonder what silence is like for deaf people? or the sound of music or water?) and the top five stupidest things (i get a little riled up about talk radio and stand up comedy. heh.)
i letterpressed the covers (myself!) and it's 36 pages, quarter sized. you can buy it from me directly for 3 dollars, postage paid. email me for my addy at email@example.com. or you can buy from etsy. also i LOVE trades and will totally trade for your zine. i especially like perzines and zines that are stories or memories or about hard times or good times or transitions or positivity, but i will pretty much read whatevers.
Sure thing Ken, let's trade!
Okay... I think I still have your address; will get that out in a day or two.

It’s been nearly six months since the last issue. It’s taken awhile for me to find again some solid ground within after the sudden loss of my dear friend JBIII. Aside from the strange salving powers of time, this was accomplished by turning to my beloved KD, & also to the several dear friends whose contributions appear in The Cenacle’s 17th anniversary issue.
I invited contributors to join me in creating an issue of remembrance for those lost to the world, or simply passed from their lives. The results are as varied as the people contributing.
The contents of this new issue include:
* Poetry by Ric Amante, Tom Sheehan, Martina Newberry, Zannemarie Lloyd Taylor, Joe Ciccone, Judih Haggai, Raymond Soulard, Jr., & newcomer Nathan D. Horowitz.
* New fixtion by Raymond Soulard, Jr.
* Classic fiction by Herman Melville
* Excerpt by John Perry Barlow from Birth of a Psychedelic Culture
* Photography by Kassandra & Raymond Soulard, Jr.
* From Soulard’s Notebooks commentary
* Notes from New England by Raymond Soulard Jr.
* “Travel to Belize” journal by Charlie Beyer
JBIII was a great fan of, & frequent contributor to, The Cenacle. This issue is dedicated, with love, to him. It was this love for him, & a devotion to Art I share with him still, that brought this issue into being finally. KD & I hope you enjoy it.
This is an excellent idea.

THE NEW ISSUE OF MUSEA, THE DICTIONARY OF SMALL IDEAS issue, is now out!
Some of you have already gotten the hard copies of it, carried at the stores of the usual suspects. If you have not, Webmaster Matthew has posted it on the Musea Website at
Click on the #184 May/June/July Musea Issue*
The Issue may be a one of a kind one. I don't know of anyone who has suggested so many new ideas in so many fields. Here's a sample - the letter "D". See what you think.
DALLAS, ART CENTER TO THE WORLD Could this relatively new city in Texas, become the center of the art world? It's got the perfect southern US location, it's a city that is old and big enough to handle it; yet, new enough to be flexible to that future; and, Musea is here and working toward that goal!
DOT'S PLAYHOUSE Toy-filled Victorian Mansion, that's part playhouse, part museum, and open to ALL kids. Filled with lots of special rooms full of toys for girls and boys.
DRUG WARS America, buy all the cocaine and heroin crops directly from the farmers at their lowest price. Then you control the entire crop and reduce illegal drug traffic dramatically.
Check out all the letters, or any back issue of Musea for that matter, and let me know what you think.
Best wishes, Tom
*It is also at the usual places in town including The Inwood Theater, Lucky Dog Books (Paperbacks Plus), Half Price Books.

Catabolic and Anabolic evolved, but they did not blend.
The Budget Press Review #5 is my expressive arts therapist's attempt to manage my manic schizophrenia and anxiety disorder. Budget Press is a one man operation, where I get to do whatever I want, but to truly purge the demons in my soul I need a little help from my friends, and they have not disappointed. Bisexual cuckolding. Speed-freaks stealing porn and olive oil. Parental guilt over a dead child. Laughing penguins and bleeding ears. Alice falling down the hole with booze and mushrooms. Loser musician boyfriends. Oral sex on LSD. Fun stuff!! And I can't wait to get all this out to you!!!!
This is the second issue of my poorly-named zine, All Things Are Eagles. It contains three maybe true stories about travel, commuter trains, friends, love interests, and making out on ratty couches. Inside is basically all text, so be ready for that. My friend Shelly describes the first issue as "0% shitty" and only "20% self-indulgent wallowing", which I take as pretty high praise.
Details: May 2012, 20 pages b&w, 5.5" x 8.5", color cover.
Available on my etsy for $1.50:
PS: Consider checking out the first issue as well! Trades always welcome!
Hey, Mike, poorly named or not, I'd be willing to trade my latest perzine - Ken Chronicles # 23 - for it (I could also include my #22 for your first issue as well).
