Project Dissimulation - first zine (& more!) available now

As April is bowel cancer awareness month, I was keen to get the first issue of the Project Dissimulation zine completed in time for April – so keen that I managed to be finished early!  So far I have completed Volume I of the zine, a matching Project Dissimulation badge (I will create a new badge design for each issue, so they can be collected!), and bird badges made from upcycled postage stamps for anyone who would like a completely individual souvenir of the Project - but there is still…

Towards the end of my box office concerts, I like to do a BIG song. A Big song is a dramatic song that starts out very quietly and builds and builds and BUILDS. This is one of my big songs. Enjoy

Sayings of Editor Art - the made for TV version

Sayings of editor Art - the made for TV version
------------------

Never has so much been owned by so few to the detriment of so many.

Hubris as stiff as a Pilgrims collar.

The public is a strange brew.

How much fire went into that chili?

You must accept the fact that those that disagree with you can be moral too.

Do birds need a bridge?.

Chicago Zine Fest 2013

It was another great time at the Chicago Zine Fest, but I almost didn't make it.  The fest filled up on the first day of registration, and I had to get on a waiting list.  Fortunately a spot opened up at the last week.  Then I had to buckle down and finish my new zine that I'd begun slacking on.

I met some…

Zine submissions?

I'm thinking of a assembling a zine called "There's an elephant in the room" based off my experience with coping with a secret the size of an elephant and was wondering if anyone would want to submit anything (poetry, drawing, pictures) that have to do with their experience keeping a secret.

Everyone's excited about Maria James-Thiaw's recently finished manuscript which may turn out to be the big PostDada Press 2013 Blockbuster.

"Talking 'White' ", the latest release from postDada Media, will be available April 2013. This collection of poetry takes a hard look at the taboo subject of intra-cultural bullying that takes place within the black community, whether it's crabs-in-a-basket-syndrome, paper bag tests, or just colorism in all its forms.

For some arbitrary reason or other, I've started blogging thoughts on some of the zines I've read that might fall into the category of "reviews." Though it's a minute stash I'm working from, hopefully there is a zine or two others haven't read.
