New issue of darlene rock-n-roll fanzine

This is the first new issue in quite a while. Its got a few stories about being a hermit living in North Idaho and trying to stay connected to the very urban world of punk rock as well as a few short interviews with some musicians I dig. I love and welcome trades, otherwise send me a buck, or a nice letter, or creative email.

The Things That Are & The Things That Will Be by Mae & Cheo!





This is the first zine I've done in about two years and it's a split zine. It is seperated in two parts, my story first and then Cheo's. I write about my own existence and my conflicts with it. The writing isn't very definitive, everything is open ended and reaches to a conclusion of trying to be more capable and carry out existence.



excerpt: "I want a change to happen within the minute. Why do I lack this patience? Is that immense… Continue

Newsletter for March

Hello and welcome to yet another month of the year. It's an early spring here in the northwest part of the U.S. and things are plugging away as usual here at Ms Valerie Park, plenty of newness and many exciting things on their way. The spring seems so ripe with projects, tours, and travel, that I doubt I'll get a proper night's sleep until the end of June, but I'd like to think I'm ok with that. Hope all you out there are doing just as fine (but hopefully getting more sleep).… Continue

WMZ art quiz - test your art smarts

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


Just about a year ago to the day (give or take less than a week) the world saw an auction of an artists possessions that garnered a little under one half of a BILLION dollars. Yes BILLION with a "B". And this, as you remember was during the year when everyone had lost their money and banks were being bailed out. This was the largest auction of any private individual ever seen. Name the artist.

Back in the distro again

Mishap #27, the special book issue, is in at Microcosm distro.



#28 should be there soon.



I'd be interested how many people buy their zines from distros versus direct from the zinester. Somebody with a grant should study that and let me know.



I like how the description of #27 on the distro page says "inauspicious cover", which is another way to say "boring." The simple cover--only words, no pictures--was intentional: the zine was for readers and the cover lets… Continue

Lovely review on We Love You SO

I got the pleasant surprise of praise and thought I'd share it with the zine community.

If you happen to know these folks, tell them thanks for me.
