I dont really work 9-5 I work 3-11:30 and sometimes I continue to work when I get home or even wake up. Straight to the drawing board. Looking for me pencils and paper, distressed yet calm of what actually to jot down as a quick doodle or a fine piece of Art.
Continuing with my day I ponder if I should actually call the agency and at least see if they do have work.
Work, work, work, work for pay or play work. Works work kills you, or the stuff that doesn't pay you enjoy to do.…Continue

I’m putting together a poncho-come-zine-library this summer that I’m gonna tour around some of the UK’s more generic-lit-fests to advocate DIY-publishing as a method of getting aspiring authors/writers/artists/whatevers to get their work out into the physical public domain and away from the ocean that is the internet. In the face of major publishers and profiteers, I hope to champion creativity and expressionism as a reason to distribute your work, rather than for the…Continue

Today, as I was leaving for work, a funny smell hit me as I walked out the door. A rot of some sort. I pinched my face and went about my morning.
They moved in down the hall about two months ago. Like a summer storm, their fights were shrouded shouts that exploded and then went away.
What I like about living here is that people don’t get in your business. We coexist. Don’t get me wrong, the people who live here will say Hi to each other once in a while but the language and skin…Continue

California’s Central Valley was once considered the methamphetamine capitol of the world. This made growing up in Modesto interesting as cookers and users were everywhere. Your boss, co-workers, landlord, next door neighbor, etc. were all equally likely to be involved with the substance in one way or another. Although I'm not sure of our current status in the drug monopoly, in the 1990's Modesto, Sacramento and San Diego all shared the "Meth Capitol" moniker. It's uncertain which city was…Continue

Mormons are special people. Typically repressed and horny as hell, their sexual escapades can be amusing. An LDS family used to live down the street from me. Husband, wife, three sons and one daughter. Their oldest son was in my Sunday school class, and his dad was our Boy Scout leader, so I knew the family well. They were straight-laced Mormons; very serious about their religion, and notorious for it (even amongst fellow members). I remember they had a storage room in their house containing…Continue

I started my zine back in 2005 and have several issues left over. I have slowly been donating them to zine libraries and other zinesters but it's starting to get expensive with all the shipping costs. Anyone out there have a bunch of old copies of their zines? If so, what did you do with all of them? I wish I could leave them on a table at the SF zine fest, but I'll be out of town that weekend!

I loved this book to death when I was making zines and I think it's time to pass it on to someone else. If you're interested just message me or reply to this post! First one to reach out gets the book :)

I am posting because I am currently looking to swap rooms with a creative, low-maintenance person who can get along with a house full of musicians, artists, and fellow zine-makers. I currently live in Oakland, CA and am dying to get out of the bay area mid-May or in June. Duration maybe 2 weeks to a month, depending on your schedule too. Our house is conveniently located near several public transportation stops and we host shows once or twice a month. Spacious backyard, shared…Continue

Right now, none of the zines on my distro are available for trading because the zinesters making most of them don't want to trade them. The one I made that's on my distro right now (No Missing Pieces Zine) I need to sell the paper copies of. One of the zines, Bound To Struggle, was available for free on zinelibrary.org but that site is down :( The online version of No Missing Pieces Zine (a compilation zine by all autistic people) is available to download and read for free here …Continue
