I'm trying to get my personal spiritual journal-zine going.It will have excerpts from various books,stories of my travels hopping freight trains/Greyhounds/other free rides around the country,living on the street,gutter punk escapades,living in and out of Hare Krishna temples,12 step recovery inventories and realizations as a catechumen to the Ayahuasca religion - Santo Daime ...The journal-zine passages are very personal and deep to the degree that Ill likely use a pen-name and remain anonymous.

Hey Portland friends! The rain is back and I couldn't be happier! I'm working on  a kickstarter to fund the 5th printing of my book, Stolen Sharpie Revolution and I hope you might be interested in in:

Stolen Sharpie Revolution: a DIY Resource for zines and zine culture (5th Edition) Kickstarter

Since 2002 Stolen Sharpie Revolution has been the go-to resource for zines and zine culture. With over 21,000 copies in print, this book is poised to break the quarter-hundred-thousand copy barrier at least BUT I NEED YOUR HELP!

I am 15 days and half way through the Stolen Sharpie revolution Kickstater, but we don’t quite have half the funds yet! Please consider backing this kickstarter. if not for you, for the next generation of zine kids that are just as excited and a little bit confuse as you were when you trying to do your first layout.

The IPRC is recruiting for the 2014 Zine Library Advisory Board (Zine LAB). We're looking for library-lovers of all stripes to support the zine library's best year ever. The Zine LAB meets once a month and advises on library programs, outreach, fundraising, and our 24-hour zine cataloguing competition "Raiders of the Lost Archives" in March. Join the zine library advisory board! We have snacks!

Hey folks! Pretty soon We're going to be
thickening the zine collection at red and
Black. While we've got an awesome selection
of zines, we'd like to have more
contributions from local folks to include
in the permenant collection. Our focused
Genres include animal rights, politics, (A)
feminism, queer lib, DIY. No poetry, but we
love all other types of zines. We'd love to
have more PNW illustrators and comic makers
included, as well. There is a collection
box at Red and Black, or you can e-mail
warholadanielle@gmail.com and make
arrangements. We are working on a sale
selection as well, and all contributions
will be considered for that as we come to
finalizing the system. We will be doing a
featured zine display every two weeks (with
an internet feature on RNB's facebook,
resume of charm blog, and hopefully we will
be able to sell those selected!), with an
emphasis on Local zine and comic makers!
When submiting, please be sure to fill out
the form with Name, zine title, e-mail and
a mailing address if you have one - all
donatations taken as part of our collection
will recieve something small in the mail!

Out of town folks who want to be included,
please mail to

This took me forever but I have some good interviews with Justin from Retox and George from Blacklisted.

Numerous show reviews and album reviews. This has a whole lot of pacific northwest music. Murderess, Black Queen, Dogshredder & more.
Plus Stanton Moore Trio and Melt Banana (a few others)


I also have some of issue 2 left and I'm working on issue 4.

I'm new here, paying my membership at the center here on monday, thought I'd take the time to introduce myself and my zine titled "Alcohol May Intensify This Effect".  Guess you'd consider it a "perzine", though I'd consider it a mesh of a bunch of different random things.  I'm gonna throw it into the library, so read it if you think a counter-culture trip to the bay area might be interesting.
Comment by Tracyville on December 14, 2010 at 12:11pm

I'm new here, so I wanted to introduce myself and my new zine - "Miss Tracy's Guide To Handmade Hair + Body Products."  The zine is a guide of simple recipes to show you how to make your own natural body products like deodorants, shampoos, body oils, lip balms and more.  You can see pics and get more info on my blog at www.tracyville.blogspot.com or snag a copy from Powells Books.  Thanks for looking.
