try not to act like a goddamn baboon today

crapandemic, detroit mi.

staightedge, fond of shitty metalcore, drinks way too much tea, has trouble making friends, writes zines to get the ~feelings~ out. loves trades, friends, penpals, and gender neutral pronouns.

currently available:

All The Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues, a zine about my crazy alcoholic mother and what she did to turn me into a ball of anxiety and shame. All The Best Cowboys includes stories about dead squirrels, ruined holidays, double-talking with the best politicians, scamming jesus, domestic violence, and the best music of the mid-nineties. and it's illustrated! by the wonderful Heather Kelly, making their zine debut. the limited edition (currently available) has silver-on-black silkscreened covers, but any edition will make you feel that much more normal about your own crazy childhood. 68 pages, quarter sized, $4 or trade.

Every Thug is a Lady, a zine about not having a gender. some people are boys, some people are girls, some people are in-between and some people want nothing to do with any of it--i'm the latter. we call it neutrois. Every Thug is about finally opening up to my gender, coming out, learning to live in my body, and includes fun things like a guide on how to hack your facebook pronouns, loads of pictures, cartoon interludes, how i survive a day at work, adorable baby pictures, awesome haircuts, and a bunch more. 72 pages, quarter sized, $4 or trade.

All On Black, an invitation to my own funeral. i'm paranoid i'm going to kick the bucket any day now, and if my funeral sucks i will never be able to handle it. and because living wills are expensive, here's a zine! occasionally serious and usually just fantastical, it covers everything from music and flower choices to ruminations on art and how it changes after we die. 32 pages, micro mini, free with any other zine or trade or just write me a letter.

Cunning Stunt, a mini-rant about the politics surrounding my vagina and the chronicle of my most recent yeast infecton, all rolled into one! Because sometimes, I make jokes on twitter that I then take way too far, and now I have a zine about yeast infections. Read at your own, yeasty risk. 16 pages, super micro mini, free with any other zine or trade or just write me a letter.

Up for a trade? Particularly interested in your zine about gender neutral pronouns but, all of them sound awesome so. Let me know. x Ele

This sounds fantastic!  So, the cover price for my zine is $3.  I'm super interested in Every Thug is a Lady, but all of your zines sound amazing. 

So yeah, just let me know if you'd want to trade zines or buy a copy of Creative Evolution.  I'm totally flexible.

Liza :)

Hi!  I would love to trade zines!  I just finished a perzine called Creative Evolution.  It's a collection of writing about my evolving sexuality, some other writing, collage, photography, line drawings, et cetera.  If you'd be interested in trading--or maybe even writing letters back and forth--lemme know!  You can email me at creativeevolutionzine@gmail.com, or leave a comment on my wall. 

It was fantastic meeting you at Chicago Zine Fest!!

Reading: the 'zines' tag on tumblr and raging about it, cracked.com articles because I'm stuck at work

Pondering: if it'll actually kill me if I jam my head in the printer or if it'll just like maim me and rip my scalp off

Long time no talk, zine world. You're all looking ravishing this…

You know how sometimes you make an off-handed joke on the internet or something and then somebody tells you it's a great idea? Yeah. So I had a yeast infection, and I joked that I was gonna write a zine about it, and then a whole mess of people told me to do it and now I guess…

Reading: Infinite Jest

Listening to: Green Day's entire discography with a concentration on Insomniac and Warning

Drinking: clearance store-brand organic English Breakfast. It's not bad if you don't think about it.

Pondering: names, what project to undertake next, flyers, going to the fabric store at this point in the day...

I've been up since 8 which is a fucking record for me, but…
