What's all this, then?

Starting another thing online, I guess. I tend to spread myself thinly over the internet.

Great idea for Vegemite, but it's a shitty approach to gaining exposure.

Here are some websites I'm not quite happy with:

Started it in 2008 as a portfolio site. Has some of my best work on it, but there are heaps that need to be added to it.…

Host-jumping

I recently found a new web host, Weebly.com. Hate the name, but so far there's nothing I don't like about the service. The interface is ridiculously easy to use and it has a lot of nifty features that I haven't seen with other hosts. So I'll slowly be transitioning all my online junk into one single Apocalypse Girl HQ.

Come by and check it out- Apocalypsegrrl.com

New Blank Books and Zines from Eberhardt Press

Portland's Eberhadt Press is really great; they off-set print everything themselves, use all reused/recycled paper, and keep it real cheap. We're pretty happy to be carrying some of our favorites from them...

presented and told

Been reading a lot of really good zines lately. Been tempted to start reviewing them, but then I wonder - do we really need another opinionated voice, tainted by personal taste; does anyone other than the zinester herself (or himself) care what I think about a zine?


Anyway, it's been refreshing and cathartic to read people's personal experiences, presented in a somewhat careful and artistic format, especially when they to some extent mirror my own sentiment. A copy of…

More damn zines

have been added to the site over the past week and a bit. Check it out: takecarezines.org

Thanks to everyone who has ordered in the last couple of weeks, too! It's been busy, and good. Goodly busy.

I've also been doing more zine recommendation posts at Flying Machine, if that's of any interest to anyone.

Over and out, for now

Arizona Zine Fest Anyone?

I have been searching high and low and have not been able to locate any zine fairs or zine communities within the state of Arizona. This brings me much sadness and frustration! So I have decided to take it upon myself and do some research regarding planning/organizing a zine fest/fair in the Phoeinix (Arizona) area. If anyone out there can offer advice, tips, words of wisdom on how to get this idea off the ground I am all ears.Or if you know of such events or communities within the State of…

Brighton Zine Fest 2010

It’s always tough to write about zines without falling into self-referential piffle – we are afterall unsubbed and unvalidated – but events such as this genuinely does remind me why I bother, sporadically, to produce material. There were a number of events, including a gig featuring the wonderful Bobby McGees and a knees up at the Cowley Club, around the festival but I just managed to leg it to the London Bridge train down from London for the main Saturday sale the fest was centred… Continue

Damn...

Nearing the end of February already. I have accomplished nothing.



The second issue of Hazel Harper has not yet been born. Maybe soon... maybe not.



It's the brain fog, you see. It seeps in, virtually unnoticed, making thoughts impossible to pull into focus. It is brought on by life. A mind numbing daily life of things that must be done. Wake up, feed the kids, shuffle them off to school, do what's necessary to keep the abode livable, talk to the necessary people, try to… Continue

Brighton Zinefest 2010

I travelled from London to Brighton on Saturday, picking some friends up on the way, to go to my first ever zine related event.


Hannover Community Centre had a great feel to it, very village hall-like.


The main room downstairs was packed! We placed our mix CD in the box and went round all the different stalls. It was amazing to see the wide variety of zines available, right from DIY through to professional books.


The 2…
