What to Write About in Zines

Alot of times,when people go to write a zine'they're faced with a blank.A lack of subject matter.You want to say something important,or at least worth reading.You want to say something that will be deep,that people will relate to.You want it to be like that person who wrote that zine you wish you could have written,yet mask it somehow so you don't get caught.You could write it about a show,except they all we're pretty by the book.You could exxagerate it,but that won't work.What depth's are…

Shape & Situate is a zine of posters made by artists and DIY creative folk from within Europe, each poster highlighting the (often hidden) history and lives of radical inspirational women and collectives from Europe, as a way of connecting us with the past and the present through a dynamic cultural (re-)articulation of these women’s lives.

The zine aims to activate feminist cultural memory, to inspire…

All The Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues - NEW ZINE

Step right up to ride the 68-page rollercoaster tale of how my mom did her best to ensure I would grow up neurotic and ashamed of my own existence! Part trip down memory lane, part perzine, and part spelunking adventure into the depths of my mom’s tortured psyche, All The Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues is weird, tragic, sad, and strange. Just like my bipolar, alcoholic mother! This zine is…

More Old Zine Shit

1987 was stupid.I don't think we could have fully grokked the concept of a zine store like Reading Frenzy.The only place you saw zines were at show's.They were sold out of backpack's.Maybe travelling punk rocker's would have a bunch of them for trade.They were mostly traded,or handed out for free.Occasionaly some zine person would make the jump,go get a page in Maximum Rock & Roll or Forced Exposure,but not often.Zines were mostly photo collage,wierd art and flat out stolen articles from…

Requiem for an Asshole

I don't like being institutionalized.I've alway's been against the Government,and they run all the institution's.But when you can't conform to the basic rules of society,it's inevitable.When your out of control,there are bigger thing's in place to control you.These agencies will step in when your action's allow it.And then all the thing's we take for granted are out the window.Vague rules and paperwork that is designed to quash every kind of abhorrent behavior deemed unfit for society is…

Zine news

Well, I got a lot of motivation from Chicago Zine Fest this year. I am going to try to pull myself out of my depression and work really hard to put out a few of my own zines, and maybe even have a table there next time.

1. a zine about video games (untitled right now)

2. a zine about abandoned places (untitled right now)

3. Sexy Revenge Fantasy: the Depo journals (a zine on how mentally ill the birth control shot…
