Printaissance Issue #2 has arrived!

The second issue of my new zine Printaissance is ready to ship! It is a per/lit zine mixing personal anecdotes, original poetry, and some ranty socio-political commentary and myth busting to bring this new issue to life. It is titled 56 Herbs and is focused on that favorite gateway drug of choice for millions of people across the globe, Marijuana!

 

Issue 2 (28 half page pages /$3 or trade)

Melnaie Pruit's Oscar Wrap Up

Musea is pleased to continue its annual tradition to repost the Oscar Wrap Up of Melanie Pruit.  Enjoy.

Okay, so last year, I sat in the tutoring lab at school and tried to compose my Oscar wrap during the down time before my class. Unfortunately, there were three emergency drills that day (for lack of a better term), and it was cold and wet and nasty outside, so with all the starts and stops, I didn’t think I would ever get through it. This year, I played it smart and wrote while I…

Seeking Zine Workspace Artwork for WMZ

Do you have a photo or can you draw a neat header like image that shows a zine work space? You know, paper, scissors, cut images and text, glue, etc...

 

I am thinking of using it for a We Make Zines redesign.  I would like the image to be a little vague in the content of the zine so can seem a general zine layout instead of looking very much like a certain zine. Make sense?

As for size, not sure exactly, but I'm guessing about 750 x 300. No need to include the name We…

A THOUGHT: The act of thinking; the exercise of the mind in any of its higher forms; reflection; cogitation. 



"All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him,… Continue

Etsy Sale

I've been looking for an excuse to use one of those coupon codes on Etsy for a while now and I guess being on the verge of our 500th sale on there is a good enough one. So, until the end of the month, you get 15% off any purchase, whenever you use the code below.

When we started it last year, I thought it would just be a few extra sales, so it's been a wonderful surprise. Thanks.…

Musea's National Hiring Day / One Job For America

Readers,

You have all heard of me talking about National Hiring Day a LOT.
For two months I've been telling Huffington Post about National Hiring Day #1 scheduled for Jan. 2011, and #2  for March 15 2011. See Huffington comments Tom Hendricks. There are over 250 comments by me, most about National Hiring Day.

Libraries Under Threat: My Response to Mike O'Hare

I e-mailed Joe Smith, publisher of the Aardvark and owner of Manual Publishing blog, November, 2009:



Joe:

 

I wrote the following comment on your blog entry, November, about library closings.  I tried to enter it in the comments text box, but there was this scroll down menu I was supposed select something from that I didn't understand.  I tried various choices, but it kept saying I got it wrong in red.  Not complaining, just…

some new (ish) zine reviews

Psionic Plastic Joy #16

Tabloid sized zine from New York’s Jason Rodgers that tackles the internet and our dependence on it (Jason has no email etc and sees no need for it), throws up some great mail art, conspiracy theories, cut and pasted words, theories, lives and enough grit to make your head swirl.  Finishes with a review of the doco Harlan County USA and an interview with Reality Impaired recordings Stan Bowman that adds a nice final touch.  PPJ always makes my head spin…
