"yes.  :). but my main character is me 99.9% of the time, because my only ongoing project is my per-zine."

"When I think about it, it seems weird--- I've been vegan for 18 years, doing my zine for 15 years, and I've never once mentioned veganism in my zine."

"I'm about to embark on a zine tour next week! Zines On Toast! I would suggest looking for shops that carry zines in that area as well as zine libraries in that area. The papercut zine library in Boston is a good one."

"Sorry I have to work at Quimby's that day. So whatever zines you have left after the fair you can walk 'em down to Quimby's (quimbys.com for info) and consign 'em if you don't have 'em there already. Have fun!"

the Muse, the News, and the Noose

I'm a Chicago native, characterizing me as cynical by nature. I'm vegan, i play drums, and my day job is in the recycling industry.
I write the zine 'The Muse, the News and the Noose" (since 2006). It's been called 'depressing' by some and heart-felt by others. As MTX says, everyone's entitled to their own opinion.
Feel free to drop me a line.
Thanks.
