traditional letterpress-your nuts

alot of zinesters lately have been touting the awesomeness of the old fashioned letterpress lately.they have a few around people print handbills on for shows.ive seen them,and it really took me back.probably people seeking authentic type quality prints are drawn to these cheap,affordable machines.thats all well and good,but i think its essential that everybody knows to be really careful on those things.of course everyone is,so just disregard the rest of this page and have fun making… Continue

Musea E-mail Club #522  NPR Music Conflict of Interest.

Readers,  Here are two examples on my blog, of NPR conflict of interest. I have 57 of these screen grabs saved - each shows an artist featured by NPR on the left, and a sponsored ad for the same artist on the right.

nothing #1

first issue. half-size, 22 pages, $1, stamps, or trade. probably don't mail me a dollar because canada post employees like to supplement their wages where they can (just like anyone else). your best bet is to find me at a show (in brandon or on tour elsewhere in canada) or stalk me at work (please don't i'm paranoid enough as it is) or to mail some stamps, or to trade your own zine.

WMZ Art Contest 2/5/11

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

This modern classic novel, first published in 1988 has the world record for most translated book by a living author with 67 languages. It has sold 65 million copies in 150 countries. What's "novel" about it is the author's online selling strategy. He posts free copies of it. This seems to spur sales like crazy! Name the author and bestseller AND publishers take note!

self censorship:a gosh darn son of a gun problem

one thing plagueing the zines you see these days is self censorship.censorship in general is really boring,and it makes life alot boring-er.but when it comes to something like zines,which,in all honesty,were not too incredibly exciting to begin with,it's pretty self defeating.zine expansion and production has expanded during the years,with some amazing writing and art spreading across the world,but its come at a price.nowadays you see alot of people just basically puffing up thier resume with a… Continue

The second issue of Bridget Irish and Hannah Horovitz's "Hair" is here!

Hair is one of the most interesting zines around. Using only the subject of human hair as a premise, they create a wonderfully interesting and drop dead gorgeous zine. Then they only make a few and they sell out and become collector's items (at least that's my guess as to what they're doing). Last issued they peaked everyone's interest by interviewing Tobi Vail of Bikini Kill fame…

Poems written late January 2011

Poems Written Late January 2011

POEMS
1.
Three young detectives
dedicated sleuths,
searching through the mansion
for telltale clues.
Searched the attic
up the rickety stairs.
Searched the 2nd floor
and every bedroom there.
Searched the ground floor
and the basement too.
Dank smells
but no clues.
Then floats a feather
as a…
