While on the subject of Cristy C. Road, I thought I would also add this review that I wrote of Indestructible. This review originally appeared in Zine World #24.
Indestructible: This short illustrated novel by long-time zinester Cristy C. Road tells the coming-of-age story of a young, queer, punk woman of color having adventures and struggling through adolescents in the 1990s. I found the writing unremarkable, but the illustrations are phenomenal. The book is worth the asking price… Continue

Distance Makes the Heart Grow Sick: A Book of Postcards
Cristy C. Road
I really dig postcards. They’re the cheapest way to send a bit of mail to friends, a quick and inexpensive hello that doesn’t involve computer technology. Postcards are tangible and real, something that can be hung on the wall… Continue

I was messing around on Etsy.com when I stumbled upon this lovely and unusual anatomical heart necklace. I’m not much of a consumer, so I thought my desire would prove to be nothing but a passing fancy. However, I couldn’t stop thinking about this piece and didn’t stop wanting it. I finally decided that $10 (plus a $2.50 shipping fee) was a… Continue

learning to leave a paper trail distro
january was a bit of a slow month in terms of zines being added to the catalogue, but the one new zine that did come in is especially awesome: "fire hazard" #2, from providence RI, self-described as being all about "punk rock, anarchy, food, kombucha, gardens, rage <3 <3 <3 <3, friends, mental health, healing, books, bikes,… Continue

Hey everyone, just wanted to show you some of the comics and zines that have been recently added to Black Light Diner Distro!
EIGHTEEN LONG DAYS (Amherst, MA)
Leann’s travel diary documents her journey to Chicago in January 2007 to take a writing class with cartoonist Lynda Barry (one of my favorites, too). On the way, she celebrates Xmas with family, bonds with her sister, explores art galleries, and trawls the Windy City. The drawings are filled with a certain… Continue

Have you seen that Google is giving away stickers they made - and they are only doing it through the mail. Pretty cool. You can find more about it on their blog

Beth and Chris have been tied up working on another project, Drone Magazine. Kate has been busy moving countries over the last few months and now resides in Taipei, Taiwan.
We are all currently in discussion about the fate of Story To… and will get back to you as soon as we… Continue

1st meeting for Richmond Zine Fest 2009 will be happening later next week. Probably preliminary, not exactly open type of meeting, and a very short meeting to boot.
Updates will occur more often as the planning progresses and details are confirmed. If you want the updates, it is best to either bookmark www.richmondzinefest.org or add us as friends on myspace or facebook (links are at the top of our profile page at the moment). We may send out messages to our WMZ friends, but who… Continue

And so, if I have asked you to be on the show before but didn't follow through I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Tomorrow I plan to get in touch with a lot of you again. In the meantime, if you are interested in being a guest, talking about your zine, promoting a project, get in touch!

You never know what you find when you look for music on etsy.com. Music isn’t about major labels or even money anymore. I will prove it with my next few reviews.
Hell, with this album its not even about music.
The Final Grrrls are a wordcore band, their headline on myspace proudly proclaims “a wordcore revolution” Being a wordcore girl myself I’m happy about this. The Final Grrrls are just two girls but boy do they pack a huge glittery punch. Its a split album half Jolie Drama (nee… Continue
