This word means a total work of art - an artwork that merges many types of art in to a total single work.

Reading: Infinite Jest
Listening to: Green Day's entire discography with a concentration on Insomniac and Warning
Drinking: clearance store-brand organic English Breakfast. It's not bad if you don't think about it.

A little book of my dreams, hallucinations and thoughts expressed through drawings, words, photography and collage. Alien like creatures, spinal columns, wires connecting the layers of worlds, the darkness who watches all and many more images splatted onto the pages. A5 sized, black and white…Continue

Dear Anonymous 2 is on its way and I'm once again looking for letters!
Lessons learned from DA1:
*250 words or less is good (for one page)
*500 words or less is good (for two pages)
So, basically, you're right in the 1 - 500 words range, but shorter is better. BUT, this zine is about expression, and I don't want to force anyone to clamp down on their passion just for me. I'm flexible.…

Looking around I see that I'm not the only one with this problem.
One of the biggest thing keeping me from actually publishing my first zine (other than the fact that I can't draw a lick, and am afraid nobody wants to read pages of my rambling without a pretty picture attacked) instead of just talking about it is....My inability to settle on a title.
I was going to go with "YummY! Down" which has been my blog for many years. But vetoed that.

Readers, what is your experience/history with Myspace?
Most of us agree that the consolidation of the arts into so few corporate hands (Big 6 - see below) is not good for the arts. When that hand full of conglomerates not only make and distribute the art; but, review the art they make too - that is too much. That's reason enough to do some trust busting. BUT
Most of us think , somewhere in the back of our minds, that these business leaders, though hard on quality art, are…Continue
