Hello zinesters! I am 20 years old, live in San Francisco and publish a music magazine based around total fan boy slime called TEENAGE NEWS. I would love to trade, sell or give you fine folks a copy.

In short, "TEENAGE NEWS is based around an unceasing desire to rediscover long-lost, favorite records. TEENAGE NEWS is not limited to a specific audience; it is for those who are trying to recreate that initial captivation of falling for an album, artist, song, era, ideology, etc. TEENAGE NEWS is about the reader getting lost in the moment, learning about themselves, and learning about the STARS that created much more than pieces of merchandise."  

Issue #2 proves that TEENAGE NEWS always hits you full force. Back with educating and entertaining interviews, prepare to lose yourself in this teenage paradise.

Features: Cherie Currie (Runaways), Gary Powell (Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things), Jennifer Clavin (Bleached), Klaus Nomi, Dave Davies (The Kinks), Cherry Vanilla's Pop Tart Compositions, Joey Pinter, Bobby Jameson, Tommy James (the Shondells), Desert Island Discs by the STARS, The Mutants, Vinnie Kircher (Jaill), album reviews.

I would like to make a fanzine about the 80s postpunk/goth/batcave scene. I was born decades after this happened so I haven't got much other than photos I found online. But I want to include photos, experiences, etc from people who were into this sort of thing "back in the day". Ideal time frame is 1978-1991. If this works out I'd like to get it published in time for the Portland Zine Symposium (basically print time would be early July). a contribution can be one sarcastic sentence or an entire essay. I'll print it regardless.

Message me if you'd like to help out!

"Inconceivable!" is a new zine dedicated to women who are not mothers - by choice. I would like for childfree women to be able to express how they think and feel and have a place to discuss how deeply the ideology of motherhood has infected our thinking about women and femininity.  I welcome and encourage any contributions anybody has!!! Message me!  Thank you!

Is this a fanzine? Is this shameless self-promotion? You make the call! MC Sunflower Jones puts out tons of these little Pocket Readers, each one about a different musician or artist. This one here is about Darby Crash of The Germs & his purposeful overdose on heroin. Also available: Joy Division, Lou Reed, Billie Holiday, Sun Records...etc! Just thought y'all might be interested, if not you can tell me where to go & all that jazz... <3

Oh yeah, here's the link - MC Sunflower Jones

Muchacha Issue #4 Winter 12’
“The Funny Female Issue”

In the mist of the whole “feminism & comedy” debate this summer after the Daniel Tosh fiasco (where he told a girl in the audience that he would find it amusing if she were gang raped), people were beginning to make false claims that feminists were being “too serious” and couldn’t “take a joke” . I thought about how the feminists in my life are the most hilarious people I have ever known. I reflected upon the funny female comedians, writers and humorous women on television that I have listened to, read and watched for years. I knew what the next theme of my fanzine needed to be…

This diverse 38 page issue contains a variety of submissions and pieces from hilarious self-identified feminists. Subject matter ranges from feminist performance pieces (“Size 2 Pants”-Guerrilla Girls on Tour!, “How to seduce a feminist”-Sarah Fox), Feminist Disney, comics ( “The Migrant Rights Activista on Her 21st B-day” “El Senor Bobo..”) the five stages of death concerning feminism within pop, men’s menstruation, satirical feminist songs, the debate between comedy and feminism itself, feminist jokes, Female Comics of Color, Samantha Bee on Abortion, “The Wisdom of Fran Lebowitz”, Daria Morgendorffer, fictional heroines and more! This issue is dedicated to every feminist who has ever been labeled “too angry” “too serious” or “too uptight”.

To purchase a copy visit my etsy shop or to trade message me or contact me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com!
