Zining Mishaps
4 Replies

You are utter cosmic perfection, that is true. But when you're doing it yourself, it's likely you're going to screw up every once in a while. I want to hear about people's zine mishaps! Accidents,…Continue

Shards of Glass In Your Eye!

SHARDS OF GLASS IN YOUR EYE! is a humor + random zine featuring offbeat insights from an unconventional observer. Each issue features funny essays, sarcastic commentary, and extras like games and celebrity sightings. Have a fun read! LAUGH MORE!

BIO

Hi, I'm Kari.  My humor + random zine, which I started in 1995, is called Shards Of Glass In Your Eye! The first two issues were slap-dash one-nighters thrown together in fits of creative frustration. Each issue was a collection of absolutely nothing of consequence.  Resurrected in 2010, Issues 3-12 continue in that tradition.  You won't learn how to manage your money. You won't be inspired to lose 20 pounds in 20 days. You won't read the trenchant political analysis of a Capitol Hill insider, or be gripped by the harrowing story of a rock-climbing quadruple amputee.  

But you will get a personalized psychic reading, and you'll find out what's not on the official Beverly Hills walking tour map.  Grammar Nazis got you down?  I've written a lecture to them on your behalf. Sing along with me to The Domestically-Challenged Blues. Take a psychological quiz. Learn one simple rule for dating a guy from a rock band. Plus, there's diets for the desperate, celebrity sightings, a series of fond reminiscenses, and a couple of serious ones (like "In Defense of Thin Women") too. You even get a word search puzzle. It's all in good fun, and I hope you enjoy it.

HEY! :-))  I gave a copy of shards to a friend of mine just the other day woowoo--- PET RAT'S NOT DONE YET, I've written most of it but I still have to get the drawings AND some layout so it will be like 2 months (4 exams in the meantime). Sooner or later I'm just gonna put my lecture notes in it and make a zine out of that

I'll let you know my new address as soon as I know it myself then

thanks for your message & I hope yr well!!

Wow, thank you! That's great! By the way, I'm a stammery mess when it comes to public speaking, so anybody on the planet could read 'em better than me. Thanks so much for your nice words :) 

At 8:30am on August 21, 2014, Cheering and Waving Press said…

"Brightline" zine looks good. Would love to trade with you when I get more copies of New Hearts New Bones #14 printed up here in a few days (:

At 3:33am on August 21, 2014, Orla Foster said…

That's perfect! I like the symmetry of us both reading them . . . I'll definitely be up for trading again in the future, although I am awfully slow at making zines. Thanks again for sending it! :) I hope some celebrities cross your path soon so you can write up the encounters next time!

Hi Kari,

I got your zine today! I don't know why exactly, but Onomatopoeia made me smile. Luigi Board made me laugh, but pants. totally cracked me up! I laughed so hard my roommate peeked in to find out what was going on. It's a great little zine! 

As soon as I've got something else to trade, I'll definitely trade with you again!

I'm glad you liked GADZooks! I'll have to check out Dream Water. It sounds vaguely familiar but I don't recall having seen it before. 

Thanks again!

-john

Zining Mishaps

You are utter cosmic perfection, that is true. But when you're doing it yourself, it's likely you're going to screw up every once in a while. I want to hear about people's zine mishaps! Accidents, set-backs, bad reviews, embarrassing anecdotes, lessons learned, all of the unfortunate stuff.Here are a few of mine:*I had a copying mishap once. I was making 50 copies of Shards, with double-sided originals. I pulled out a set of pages, turned them over, and plunked them back into the paper tray.…See More
