a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I've finally got some freshly pressed copies of my new 'zine Notes and Bolts. While I know this won't be most everyone's thing, I know there are a few of you who may enjoy it. $5 ppd gets it to yr mailbox by the end of the coming week!
Here's the synopsis being used to sell the thing:"Notes and Bolts is a small press publication devoted to exploring the disparate avenues where art, music and food co-exist in varying ways. Issue 1 features 60 pages of content ruminating on the Futurist Manifesto of Cooking, wonderings on the obsessive nature of record collectors, the bad reputation of okra, the early 90's period of indie godparents Sonic Youth as well as an interview with synth horror musician Umberto, an essay by Jonni Greth on the best bad album in his collection with an intro by 'zine celebrity Jetta Vegas (there's other stuff too - you'll have to get a copy to find out what)!"
Photos of the cover as well as a small bit of the content can be found in my photos section.
If you'd like, you can purchase a copy or three via http://notesandbolts.storenvy.com/ :)
I was wondering what FM is about; what's inside?

Creating Chaos Iss. No. 1 is now available!
Putting my old zine (Little Grrrl Lost & Found) to rest and starting up a new zine was not as eqasy as I though it would be. I had difficulty getting started and deciding what to include and what to explore... all in all though I am happy with the final product! Hit me up if you wanna trade (I havent done any trades in a few months and could use some good reading) or purchase issue no. 1 through my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/BrandysCraftNook
last month's debut issue of NB sold out inside of a week which was rad - perhaps some of you liked it enough to keep going? This issue is all about pizza (well, half of it - 30 pages or so while the rest are regular features carrying over each issue). Last issue was the first and the layout was a bit simpler - as per the suggestion of a couple of great folks, there have been some variations in fonts and layout in order to break the reading experience up a bit! As was the case with the last issue, this one is $5ppd!
Here's the official blurb:
issue 2 features 60 pages of content obsessively dissecting the Italian borne wonder known as pizza, including (but not limited to) a brief history lesson on the roots of New York and Chicago pizza, a list of odes to the precocious pie and essays by Jetta Vegas and Jonni Greth about youth group extortion by pepperoni and muffins slathered with marinara and vegan cheese. This issue also contains the second installments of ongoing features including the nature of record collecting, the Manifesto of Futurist Cooking as well as a fresh batch of 7" and zine reviews with a lengthy discussion with Otto Bot of legendary sci fi extraterrestrials Blaster The Rocketman! The first run of this issue also comes with a complimentary bag of red pepper flakes to enjoy while noshing on a pie as you read!
