Profile Information


PMS Mess!


I'm Hadass, from Jerusalem, Israel. I'm a writer, zinester, metalhead, riot grrrl, activist, artist, and blogger. I wrote my first zine, Fallopian Falafel from May 2007 to June 2011, and I have a few back issues if you would like to buy or trade.

Today, I write a perzine called Purple Myrtle Squeegy - A PMS Perzine. This zine is all about my experiences with music, feminism, riot grrrl, art, DIY, activism, the zinester life in Jerusalem, and a bunch of other fun stuff. PMS is also up for trade.

In 2012, I also recorded an EP with my band Mistress Distress.

I love trading zines, snail mail letters, and art! Please message me if you'd like to trade such awesome-ness!

If you'd like to find out more about me, my zines and art, visit my blog.

Now available! Purple Myrtle Squeegy, issue 13 - A special issue about my trip to MA and my first zine fest. Click here to visit my Etsy shop.

Well, a lot of shit has been going down in Jerusalem and I didn't get to any of the last IZM activities as a result.

On Wednesday night, I went to a show at a local bar with my husband. That was kind of a waste…

IZM - Day 27: Another zine event

Posted on July 28, 2015 at 4:37am 0 Comments

This time it really wasn't so much a zine event as it was a meeting with a friend at my house for a night of art and stuff.

But I did get a chance to work on my zine. I also changed my typewriter ink ribbon and the script looks so much…
