@ Kay- if you'd like to start a discussion use the forums! It's easier to keep all the conversation in one place per topic. @Tim- zine looks really good visually and sounds like it has awesome and thoughtful content

I'm posting this here because it's my first zine in EIGHT YEARS!!! Been working on this for months and am very happy with how it turned out, so I hope you'll all give it a look.

Here's the description from Etsy....

Some Notes on Film, Vol. 1

Debut issue! Eight essays on various films and on film, filmmaking, and art in general. Features original illustrations as well as film stills.

I started Some Notes on Film as a way of encouraging myself to articulate my free floating thoughts about the films I watch. Instead of writing reviews, I try burrowing into specifics: particular themes, motifs, aesthetic choices. I’m writing from the perspective of a filmmaker, and so the observations I make are usually somehow related to me thinking through my own practice.

Topics for this issue include:
- Steve Martin's goofy tenderness in The Jerk
- Josh Safdie's microbudget indie The Pleasure of Being Robbed (as seen on the cover)
- Brian Eno's idea of art as a "trigger for experience" (and why I don't like it)
- Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye and Renaissance painter Pieter Bruegel
- Ain't Them Bodies Saints compared to Terrence Malick's Badlands
- Billy Wilder's The Apartment and physicality in screenwriting
- the difficulty of portraying digital life in movies
- plus a lengthy intro essay on the differences between zines and blogs

56 pages
Black and white
Card-stock cover
Saddle-stitched (stapled)

You can pick up a copy for $4.25 on my Etsy shop.

I'm new here, and  a bit perplexed to how quiet everything is.

But I have a question, should I post it here or the discussion forum for this group?

Where is everybody?

This site is pretty dead, lately.

"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!

Before I read a novel about zines a week ago, I had never heard of them before. I'm very interested in getting something started and am eager to get advice. I would really appreciate it.

Here's my first ever zine! It's very short, but free. :) I got the idea to make zines when my teacher made it a class project (which I thought was pretty awesome.) This zine is a testimony about how I became a Christian because of this demonic experience I had. It has showed me that God, Jesus Christ, Heaven, Hell, demons and exorcisms are indeed real. 

It's a very short zine, I hope it qualifies as one. You can read the PDF form here: The%20Incubus%20a%20testimony.pdf

I forgot to add my zine is 16 pages and 1/4 page mini size.

Comment by shiloh on May 1, 2013 at 7:54pm

I just finished making my first zine. Its more of a spelling aid for when you cant seem to spell a word write. And it has some mazes,oxymorons,and other fun stuff. It was more of a experiment for a zine layout. But its up for trade just email me and all do a trade with you.

Arcane Angles is a new zine, created by a Zine Newbie (sorta), that covers the Occult, the Paranormal, and the Bizarre (along with some morbid stuff).  I have some copies in stock at Quimby's in Chicago for $2.  I also sell them out of my home, but am very interested in correspondence and receiving zines of similar content.  I try to use rare photos and a combination of my own artwork.  If interested email me at: arcaneangleszine@gmail.com
