Quizzical answer to last one, and question for the next

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:



How many words in English have only one letter. Clue this is a trick question.

IS,



Thousands. Craig Conley in his book One-Letter Words, a Dictionary, and website lists pages and pages. Here are some samples. A team, B list, C battery, D cup ..

"Conley teaches us that each letter's many different meanings span multiple subjects, including science—B denotes a blood type and also is a symbol for… Continue

Bruce Pavitt founder of Sub Pop talks about the Music Business

Sub Pop Label founder Bruce Pavitt sees the same music problems as I do. 3 CEO’s have ruined it, support only teen pop, and refuse to allow music to grow or change – while all other musicians have been marginalized out of any real careers.



Here are quotes from the music buisness worldwide website article. See link.



“The pop charts have never been this conservative, ever. There are literally 10-20 artists who are in the Top 100; it’s a very closed system unless you’re… Continue

Girl's Guide to Surviving Hardcore

My first ever zine is a chance to look into the lives of the women in the hardcore community.

My zine isn't universal; it doesn't speak for every single woman. However, it simply provides a platform for those wanting to make their voices heard. The name's a gimmick; the zine talks wholly about women being accepted and contributing to a community. That's what's great about…

TraumaRama #1

Hey so I made this new zine, TraumaRama #1. Here's the Etsy link, but let me know if you want to trade.

This is my first fancy colored cover. I'm really happy about it!

Here's the description:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be a difficult disorder to manage. Not only do people with PTSD have to cope with the emotional aftermath of trauma, there is significant societal stigma regarding mental illness. In TraumaRama #1, Kari Tervo aims to end the stigma and…

2017 looks to be scary

Hey all,

Hell of a year, 2016, and I have to admit that gnawing fear is chewing up my insides with what looms in 2017. But, hey, I did zines while Clinton, Bush, and Obama were in office and I'll still be doing them under the next regime of butchers sharpening their knives looking to cut social services, environmental programs, and anyone not rich white and male.

So, I had two zines planned for the next year: Chittering Madness Volume 2 and one about the importance of…

Uncle Sam Loses Billion$ From D.I.Y.

I hear the acronym D.I.Y. (do it yourself) everywhere I go these days, it has put a new face on an old trend called problem solving. I used the D.I.Y. concept to create this publication you’re reading and I even bought into this popular trend, by purchasing a domain name, titled http://www.diy-publishing.com. There, I offer a small press publishing service to indie authors like myself. The D.I.Y. concept is definitely a…
