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,…Continue

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 3-14 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.

Hi Kari,

I haven't received the Sex and September issue but I will not shy away from asking you to send it my way. Don't have anything new at the moment but there is a zine in the works. Have a mystery zine package. Would you like to trade for it instead?

Thanks for getting in touch!

Are you still on here ? Comment me back if so ( : I need your zines in my life.

This is very exciting !!! Do you have any copies of your collage zine left?

At 1:33pm on September 29, 2015, ZippityZinedra said…

Hi Kari,

I'd love to trade for your art zine Sin & The September Issue. Let me know if you want to trade!

At 6:38am on September 4, 2015, James N. Dawson said…

Kari, thank you so much for the kind words.

I thought I'd sent you the latest JND Ads & Contacts but I see I don't have a record of it, so i guess it was one of my many false memories.  I'm dropping that in the mail this morning along with a few other zines.

Maybe you sent the envelope to my old POB, 292, in Malden.  Sometimes, when the regular postmistress is on vacation, my mail sent there will get through, but most of the time she's strict with the rules and sends it back.  I've been at:

James N. Dawson

P.O. Box 950

Spokane, WA  99210

for the last couple years.

I'm fine with e-mails and use them too, and I'll be happy to print your message as a LOC.  I used e-mails and the Net, but I don't just totally give into it like most people.  I just think it's addicting and has a tendency to fritter away time that's best spent on more substantial pursuits.  I'm just trying to give the Papernet its due and build it up a little more.  Jerianne finally gave in and started accepting Net-only addresses for Zine World, thinking it'd keep it going, but it went under soon after.  I don't know the exact mechanisms involved, but it just seems like the Net has an insidious tendency to totally take over the Papernet, to shove it to the margins and off the cliff, and the conversation, if you can call it that, gets shallower and shallow.

Enough of that rant.   Looking forward to your zines

James

Hey Kari! I just saw your comment on my wall from last year, I have some free zine grab bags so I'll be sending some your way! Please direct message me your address if it has changed since last year :) thanks!! -Tina
