We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I know we're all going to do it, so I guess we could keep it neat and tidy by putting it all in one thread. So here goes, JUST post about your new issue in this thread, don't discuss or reply, that way new members can easily see what output we're all responsible for!

oh and if you go to the illustration side of the website rather than the distro side, you can see all the pages and theres a handy little paypal button too. awesome.

Driving Blind #4 - quarter size - 54 pages.

I write about my town, my first (and only) job - and my dad even wrote a story about the habits of Jersey geese. It's very cut-and-paste, and I swear it's more interesting than I make it sound. You can buy it at my distro - everything is alphabetical, so just look under A-F zines.

Dreams of Donuts #9 is done, all about my november month long trip out east to Milwaukee for friendship and the zinefest and my trip back out west. It's $1, plus I have back issues 1-8.

Musea Reader, the April/May issue is out.

This issue has 3 parts. Two for your health, and one for the health of music. The first "LARRY"S SUGAR PILLS" is a one act courtroom 'drama'. See if Larry ends up in jail for selling his miracle pills. Then something for the health of the world of music, the NPR 200 SONG MUSIC CHALLENGE. Be a part of music history and be a bit revolutionary too. Then finally from my sci side, SLEEP a new hypothesis about why we sleep . If I'm right, changing how we sleep may cure more than anyone could have imagined!!!

To find a copy send me a stamp, dollar, or trade, OR get it at the regular spots in Dallas, OR read it on line at musea.us.

Here's the opening of the short short play LARRY'S SUGAR PILLS (One act play in verse.)

Scene: Courtroom.
Characters: Judge , Lawyer for the prosecution, Defendant Larry, Narrator.
Scenery: Judge's bench, two tables, and a witness stand.
(Narrator adds his comments from off stage.)

"Call your first witness,"said the Judge.
The lawyer looked out and saw just one.
"Is he of L's Pills in the court here?
Larry looked at the two and said, "For sure."
"Take the stand and then the oath."
Larry arose and did both.
"Are you the president and CEO
of L's Pills and Larry Pill Co.?"
"I am I am I admit it's so.
"Does Larry's Pills make Larry's Pills?"
"Yes we do. 'It cures your ills'."
"Would you read the label and it's claims?"
"This'll cure almost anything!"
"Now the contents listed there under..."
"Contains 100% first grade sugar."
"So you admit the ingredients are
only sugar and nothing more?"
"Yes indeed, that's all you need.
We had a sugar coating but I'm the first to say
That seemed redundant, and got in the way......

I will also be @ the london zine symposium in May so be great to meet you there!

Thanks, Mr. T x

I am what I don't know, issue 1

Hot off the press and available as of now.

Quarter fold sized, 24 pages (not including covers).

The zine is mostly about me trying to negotiate my identity as a queer, hard of hearing, white, and female bodied person, but this issue is mostly about being hard of hearing. The whole zine was written and drawn by the hand of yours truly (I can assure you, my writing is entirely legible). And it’s also kinda in comic form.

Trades are more fun than money.
