after over a year in the making, this zine is finally finished!

Thou Shalt Not Talk About The White Boys’ Club: Challenging The Unwritten Rules of Punk [click for excerpts]

Touted as being a home for society’s rejects, outcasts, and ‘alternative’ political stances, punk unfortunately often ends up reinforcing oppressive mindsets and ideals by setting up numerous unwritten rules for dress, behavior, personal choices, identifications, and so much more. This zine, written by sari of Hoax and You’ve Got a Friend in Pennsylvania, aims to direct conscious attention to the nuances of being a marginalized person, namely a Gender and Sexuality Minority (GSM), in the punk community. Includes questions intended to incite dialogue among readers and their friends as well as a short list of recommended resources concerning marginalized experiences in punk. B&W, 34 pages, & text heavy. US$2.50. [etsy / well-hidden cash or trades]

Different Shades of normal is now in it's first issue.

It's 50 pages long and handwritten.

Topics include: mental illness (schizophrenia), self-destruction, etc. This zine's central focus is Love-whether Loving another or relearning to Love one self again.

Email me at sandra_reiki_@hotmail.com . Love to trade :)

 

**(watching a woman self-destruct while doing nothing is not a revolutionary act)**

Just finished my latest Ken Chronicles (#25). Features a surprise birthday party road trip to D.C., a story about things going wrong (and getting fixed), reviews of books, music & movies, street performer Dan Stevens, some photography, and other stuff. Digest-size, 20 pages plus cover wrap. Always looking to trade for similar sized perzines or travel zines, or what-have-you?

The latest issue of my perzine, the Ken Chronicles, is ready for mailing. It's got some articles on technology (new iPad, iPod, iPod docks), an update on the 1937 travel journal I discovered in a flea market, some ranting about Florida, reviews of recent movies, books & magazines, interesting people who've recently passed on, among other things.

It's already in the mail to my regular trading partners and available for $2 to anyone else, but I'm always looking to trade for other similar publications (travel-oriented zines, perzines, etc.). Let me know what you've got to offer.

Finally, Here. In My Head #10: The University Years, is out now!

£1.20 UK / $2.00 International

It’s 40 pages, half-sized, with a thick paper cover tied together with a pretty ribbon!

Inside, I write about living away from home, academia, making friends, the Student’s Union, and graduation.  It’s mostly a collection of stories about my experiences, but there’s also some practical advice for students and would-be students, and lots of lists.  

Info on how to buy or trade a copy can be found at http://blatantblithe.wordpress.com/2012/07/07/here-in-my-head-10-no....
