Well, it was a great zine fair to start with... I got to run a zine workshop and be on a panel with some other zine makers. Unfortunately, I was stuck behind my table for most of the day and only got the briefest window to go and see what was about.
My favourite thing that I picked up was a one-off zine by Prado Marin. I really like getting the only copy of something, and this one is very nice. It's a sewn-together collection of bits of magazines, collage, graph paper, tracing paper, etc.… Continue

Hi everyone, I very lazily make a zine called, 'F/8 and be there'
It's a small collection of things, moments and engagements that make me take a second look and think, I love to show what I've seen to other people. For me that's what taking photos is about.

We still need just a few folks that can lend their wit and writ to interview a handful of artists for our rad/ical arts magazine. We love folks that can ask probing, pointed questions with a critical eye. Are you that somebody? (thanks aaliyah)

Last night was a big one for the world. It was the night of the first world orchestra - the Youtube orchestra!
The Youtube orchestra's first performance was Wednesday night April 15 2009. It's a big deal and something that should be noted not only in the history books - which it will be - but noted now - when it happens. Here's the info from the youtube video:
The world's first collaborative online orchestra performed at Carnegie Hall on April 15, 2009. Selected by the… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
His San Francisco architect’s drawings were “discovered in 1990, stacked in piles in the garage of a recently deceased tenant. The young woman who discovered the drawings decided to take them to a San Francisco gallery owner for assessment…. Upon reviewing the drawings, (she) could not believe what she was seeing: on thirty-nine sheets of vellum were drawn the most detailed, fantastic buildings—whole cities, in… Continue

In the first issue of ArtXX, we included a few pages of DIY/craft-action, which was fun, well & good, and a great opportunity to support other folks making amazing things. As we draw close to putting the finishing touches on the second issue, we were thinking of dropping the DIY section, as we were unsure of whether it meshed well with the rest of the publication.
Then, recently, I stopped by Needles & Pens ( www.needles-pens.com ) for my monthly rifling-through-their-racks… Continue

so, i am sorry but this site is filled with assholes who make me feel sad and upset about the state of zines. If WE MAKE ZINES is a reflection of the new generation of zinesters then we are in serious trouble.
I refuse to keep my mouth shut. Everytime someone writes something stupid on here that I can see I will speak my mind. Even if it means I am a devil cunt whore everyone grows to hate.
I LOVE ZINES. I LOVE ZINES for VERY intense reasons.

I am just gonna come out with it: I have not been in a good mental place and have struggled with drug addiction for a long time now. One of the problems I had was honoring orders and trades. I just want to make this public blog post so you know I have every intention of going through all my files and sending every single person the zine I promised, even if it was a year ago.
Please know I am not trying to cheat you or be a lazy bitch. I'm just having some… Continue

Hmm, I could have sworn that I'd written more entries on here than that!
I just wanted to let everyone know that I am back, but I need some ass-kicking to get back into making zines! I want to, but some days I can't even motivate myself to get up and go shower.
So, any tips and tricks for getting back in the game?
