Zines come in all shapes and sizes! I'm currently compiling a zine for BIKE ART!

Working in a bicycle cooperative has been great for honing in on my bike repair skills, but I want to start encouraging myself and others to make more art out of our unusable bike parts. I encourage you to go to your local bicycle co-op or shops and gather ideas, and ask what they do with theire unusable bike supplies?? Ask if you could have some to play around with, for a small donation or for free!

Some ideas include jewelry, bike tube wallets, fork T.P. holders, jewelry display wheels. The list goes on! What do you make or want to see in this booklet??

The way I see this being compiled is by bike part and their potential future uses... ie

HUB--candle holder, container, rolley wheel thing, business card holder

SPOKES--S hooks, bracelets, metal flower stems, mobile hanger

WHEELS--chandeliers, compost lid, clock, fence, plant holder

Submissions:

-email to tarup@riseup.net (Subject: Bike ART Zine)

-Bike Art Projects and How-to Guides that people can follow. Step-by-step photos are encouraged if they help but not mandatory!

-Images of finished projects and What they are

-The more accessible the better! (ie. using available tools/parts vs welding, though I would love welding suggestions!)

Deadline:

Sometime 2012. I want to gather as much as possible, so we'll give this a few months, but the sooner the better as with anything!! That will even give you time to learn something and then share it.

Thank you!!

Monique

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS

Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters?

Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre.

Specifically, we ask for:
1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino)

2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format)

3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format

4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words)

5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far)
a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1
b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2
c. S/trip-hop
d. Dream(pop)
e. Queer Punk
f. SANDIGmaan

6. A theme for 1 print year
Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year
a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving)
b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds)
c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach)
d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape)

THE FINE PRINT
1. Send all submissions to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION
2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012.
3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;)

Interested in ecology theories (linked to social changes) and situationism? Multilingual Sadwrn Zine includes an interview with VHEMT's founder Les U. Knight. And another, rather deep interview with Spanish philosopher José Luis Pardo on the topic of his translation of Guy Debord's La société du spectacle. Check them out in our issuu page. You can also download the light pdf or the full-weight zine (covers & pages) ready to print.

Hi, felt this zine fitted here. Recently I made a zine on what's it like living with a profound hearing loss/deafness.





Understanding a Deaf world.

Feel free to comment/criticize, share and print. 

Thanks

neither doll houses nor tree houses: on living outside of the gender binary

finished in under 24 hours for the chicago zine fest, this zine focuses on the ups and downs of finding myself outside of the gender binary and attempts to both de- and re-construct various questions about my own gender as well as gender in general. three separate sections discuss feeling pushed out of femininity, how masculinity is viewed as inherent and femininity is viewed as a fictitious performance, how striving for the “perfect balance” of two genders is not plausible nor an adequate solution, acceptance or tolerance (or neither) that i feel in specific spaces, how my radical friends misgender and disrespect me more often than my non-radical ones, the (non-) accessibility of queer jargon and language, how coming out has garnered me the most intense gender assumptions yet, dealing with friends who don’t “get it”, my desire to validate my own identity without stepping on the identity of others, and checking white privilege. 32 pgs, ½ size, b&w. $2-3 or trade. message me or e-mail youvegotafriendinpa (at) gmail (dot) com for more info!

you’ve got a friend in pennsylvania #6

my issues with mental health have always been immensely difficult for me to assess, describe, and talk about. an intensely private person, i have kept most of my struggles to myself. in this zine, i attempt to investigate the traces of anxiety, depression, suicide, and alcoholism in my family’s history as well as my own difficulties with these issues. almost split into two zines due to volume, this issue is a hefty assortment of stories, thoughts, and emotions.

eight sections discuss: the secrecy surrounding my family’s history of suicides, a recent suicide in my family, my issues with anxiety and pushing emotions aside, my reoccuring suicidal thoughts and how my identities intersect with them, talking with a fellow queer/trans* friend struggling with suicide, assessing my tumultuous relationship with alcohol and deciding to become consciously sober, what i can do to manage and deal with things, and what i plan to do in the future. there is a trigger warning for the zine relating to depression, anxiety, suicide, self-harm, alcoholism, sexual assault, and abuse - please take care of yerself before you read this - it is intense.

this zine is extremely text heavy, black & white, 46 pages, and 1/2 size. for purchasing or trading, please e-mail youvegotafriendinpaATgmailDOTcom or get in touch with me on here!
