I am now taking pre orders for my very first zine- Under The Influence!
For this first issue, I asked people to write an essay on their favourite musician and band. It was an extremely simple idea, however I wanted people to discuss the love of their band/musician in a personal way and it produced some amazing stories!
I am so excited to finally have my very first zine just 24 hours away from being printed!
Hello, friends! I've finished a new zine. It's about my trips to Australia and Southeast Asia, and about getting older and trying not to feel like a weirdo. My copy connection ran out (and by that I mean I got busted scamming copies at Staples) so I'm taking pre-orders to help pay for printing it. You can pre-order it, as well as read excerpts from it and my other zines, here.
Also, anyone who donates $100 or more will receive a cd with the audio version -- me reading the entire zine in the voice I use when I talk to small dogs.
Flamdoodle number one is ready to go. It is 26 pages of stories about horrible people at yard sales and a dick mug...not to mention other fun stuff. Just let me know if you'd like to get one or trade.
Now available for download! For the first time anywhere- the complete archive of all 5 issues (92 pages) of the Iowa City punk/industrial/art zine published in the early 80's. Set your own price for the download, (proceeds go to keeping OBSOLETE! alive...) or enter the secret code word in the "discount" box at checkout for a FREE download. The secret code word is the answer to this question.... What is the first name of the teenage bass player of one of IC's first hardcore bands, who is interviewed in Issue#1 of VB? If you were in IC in the day, you know!

a new issue of deafula is out, issue #5:
have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a hearing parent and receive the news that your child has irreversible hearing loss?
now imagine this news in the time before the ADA existed, before there was a such thing as an IEP, before institutional or medical guidance really existed. imagine the only advice the doctor gave you was “well, just try to teach her how to speak.”
this is an interview on what it’s like to be a hearing parent raising a deaf child. this is an interview with my mother.
you can buy it on etsy.. you could also just paypal me $3 (postage paid) to thecityonfire (at) gmail.com. i also love trades, so email me if you want to set one up!
