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).
I'd be interested in trading my perzine, the Ken Chronicles, for yer Sour Puss. My latest, #23, is 24 page/digest size, lots of text & photos about me/home/travel/flea markets/movies/music/books, etc.
Finally getting around to post the announcement of my latest Ken Chronicles (#23, May, 2012). It's a perzine, 24 pages, digest-size, with lots of text & photos about me, home renovation, travel, flea markets, reviews of movies/music/books, etc. Just two-bucks (US/$3 foreign) but always ready to trade for something comparable (let me know what you've got) I prefer perzines/travel/non-fiction.
Interviews: Amebix, Stripmines, Pyroklast, Deathhammer & D-Takt & Råpunk records.
Also included: columns, record & movie reviews, photos.
24 pgs, b/w, photocopied

The Sampler has been coming out annually for thirteen years now, distilling the issues of The Cenacle for a given year into one chapbook of highlights.
