Zine Grab Bag- free!

Posted on November 26, 2014 at 5:26pm 5 Comments


I just recently discovered ANOTHER drawer full of zines that I unfortunately cannot hold onto anymore. If you'd like an envelope full of a variety of zines, please message me! I would prefer if you were in the US so shipping isn't so expensive for me... :/ 



New zine library in the Phillippines

I'm sending zines over to the Philippines to help out with the new zine library being built. Feel free to contact Dead Times Zine ( http://wemakezines.ning.com/profile/DeadTimesZine) if you'd like to donate! I personally think it's awesome to have my work all over the world!

I'm starting to downsize and unfortunately can't hold onto my entire zine collection. If you'd like some free zine grab bags, please message me your mailing address and I can send you a package! (In the US is preferred due to shipping costs). Thanks!

Hi Tina, I just sent you a friend request. Anybody who gives out zine grab bags is a cool person in my book. :) I saw you gave away a couple, but if you have any more, I'd love to have one. I will send you some copies of my humor zine, Shards of Glass in Your Eye!, in return. I know you're downsizing, so feel free to leave them at a bus stop or whatever when you're done with them.

If you have any grab bags left or just want to trade, my address is:

Cool. I'm so sorry it didn't work out. I just didn't anticipate how much effort having a job would be after 10+ years as a full time mom.

Send me you address, and I'll mail you a copy of the full block printing zine in trade for you DIY zine and you can decide if you want to use any of the material for your next zine.

Hi Tina;
I was just coming here to message you. I'm in Canada so if i mailed the article to you, you wouldn't get it in time (our mail is often up to two weeks.) If you don't mind waiting, I can mail it today, or as soon as I get your address. I"ll "friend" you so you can send it privately if you don't want to post it. Alternatively, I could scan and email you a pdf if that would work. If not, then I'm really sorry especially if I've held this up for you.

Hi Tina, I should have some time to get something together for you. I was looking at what I have. It is in a zine, but I might have to rework it a bit so that it would work outside the context of the whole zine. I should have it done in a few days.

Hi, thanks for the prompt. I haven't been online much lately. IRL taking over. When do you need the submissions by? I won't have time to even think about anything else until after the end of June. If you can wait until July-August, I think I could get something together.

Let me know okay,

In 2008, my partner and I decided we'd go on the zombie shuffle with my 3 year old son in tow. We took a sign reading 'family feast', my partner dressed up as an ebola zombie, I dressed up as a mad scientist who had been experimenting with zombie eugenics and my son sat in his pram, with a little fake blood and carried a bone. I don't think my son really understood what was going on, but it was a nice day for a stroll through the city with him anyway. The zombie shuffle finished at Crown Casino where we decided we would take my son to see his first ever movie on the big screen, 'Speed Racer'. He got restless every 20 or 30 minutes throughout the movie and needed to be taken out of the theatre into the foyer coninuously. The first time or two, I happily obliged.. the third, my partner took my son out whilst I continued to watch the movie.. My partner and son sat outside the theatre in the foyer for a while and watched people come and go, then a man who had seemingly just woken up and was perhaps a little intoxicated stumbled out and asked if they had seen a small boy and a woman leave the cinema.. my partner thought they'd gone to the toilet.. so the man joined them for a while and chatted about life and kids, then wandered off.. a nearby group of girls stopped the man.. "OMG!! Are you Nicholas Cage?" "Can we take a photo with you?" It was, and that's how my son met Nicholas Cage on his first ever trip to the movies, and as an added bonus whilst dressed as a zombie.

I could write a story for you about my son running into Nicholas Cage at the movies in Melbourne, Australia.. I've read two of your zines so far, I think they are great! :) Rock On, lilloulouRIOT
