Current Issue #1

            I am including an article about the band Nickelback. Entitled "Nickelback Responds To Insults On Twitter," hosted on Billboard.com, written January 24th by Sarah Maloy, the article details the bands new tactic of responding to all the bashing they get on the website Twitter. "Apparently tired of being the butt of many a music joke, the band members of Nickelback (or the reps controlling the group's Twitter account) have gone online to…

Thanks, Zine World





My previous January posting related to the most recent reviews of KFG zines in Zine World #30.5 (Nov 2011) has been deleted in favor of this revised post. The supplement edition of ZW that came out in the fall actually contains three reviews of my publications (well, four...technically), and it seemed like a good…

Pieces 6.5 and Chicago Zine Fest.

I will be tabling at the Chicago Zine Fest this year, which I am mightily looking forward to. I had a ton of fun attending the last two years, so I can only imagine that tabling at the darn thing will be even more exciting.

Just in time for the fest, a split I have done with my friend Carrie (of Brilliant Mistake and My Aim is True) will be available at both of our booths as well. So be sure to stop by, say hello, and trade zines!

Who is all coming to the…

Just getting started

I realize that the zines I'll be talking about are not along the lines of many represented on this site.  Our zine will be electronic only, a webzine, and probably not as "alternative" in content.  Our content is academic, research based, and aims towards a professional aesthetic.  This doesn't in any way eliminate creativity or art forms from the students' choices.  Their webzines can be quite creative, in fact that is one of the criteria by which they are evaluated at the end of the…

Looking for artists for: Queerios - a radical coloring and activity book!

Queerios: A Radical Coloring Book This will be the kind of activity book I never got (but always wanted) in my early teens. I’d like to put together a coloring and activity book highlighting people who were groundbreaking to you, personally. Harvey Milk and Oscar Wilde will always have a place carved out for them. This is about exploring people who did more than admit their same-sex …attraction to the rest of the world. How about what Leslie Feinburg and Kate Borenstein did for trans…

She's Not a Morning Person #09

Description: Written in November 2011, this zine chronicles my complicated relationship with my recently deceased dad. I talk about my childhood and what it was like to grow up in a chaotic, oftentimes abusive household and what it was like to grow up with an addict. There is also writing on how my relationship with my father shaped me, for both the good and the bad. The zine is raw,…
