Driving Blind #4

Finally!



Driving Blind #4 - quarter size - 54 pages.









I write about my town, my first (and only) job - and my dad even wrote a story about the habits of Jersey geese. It's very cut-and-paste, and I swear it's more interesting than I make it sound. You can buy it at my distro - everything is alphabetical, so just look under A-F zines.…

The Op Shop

There is a Junk Drawer display at the “The Opportunity Shop” in Hyde

Park in Chicago.

The shop is a temporary experimental project space. It is located in a former Hollywood Video store that has been totally redone as a community art center.

The Junk Drawer set-up was created almost entirely out of stuff found at

the space: sets of drawer, and display racks that were previously used

for DVD’s. Zines are for sale, and there’s a drawer full of odds and

ends you can… Continue

On the Road Update

I am on the road, and I'm finding it difficult to keep up with zine requests. I am going to get caught up this weekend, but it may take me a while to send out any new requests. (I only receive mail sporadically, so that's a problem too.)



If you want to get a copy of Mistaken for Straight in a timely manner, you can get it from one of the following great distros:

My Zines Reviewed in Zine World #28

Several of my zines were reviewed in Zine World #28. I'm including those reviews in this blog post.



Before I get to the reviews, I want to encourage everyone to read Zine World. It's a great resource for anyone who has even the slightest interest in zines. It's full of letters, articles, ads, a chart of U.S. postal rates, and lots of reviews. A single issue costs $4 postpaid, US; $5…

Completion!

So, i guess I should use this blog thing, because I have exciting news.



Well... exciting for me.



Last week, I officially finished my first real zine, a perzine called The Universe and You: An Owner's Manual.



Everything is cut, collated, folded, stapled, covers painted... it feels so good. Handed out the first few copies already. Plan on handing more out this weekend at the NJ Zine Fest, trades and whatnot!



Not to mention a little tiny minizine on facial hair… Continue

Things You Say zine distro - 4/7/10 update

I added two new zines to the catalog today:

  • A Million Birthdays #9

    This is another great, text-heavy zine by K, broken up into vignettes. K writes: “I have been writing down my stories – critical or not – for over seven years now and I don't really know why. It's like there's something that lives inside of me and tells me, over and over, if you are going to keep living, you have to keep writing. And so, whether or not anyone else is…

lit/art pack idea: submissions wanted

Above are my inspirations.







I am inspired by the old zines, where nothing is exactly the same and the contents are a surprise. So I was thinking of collaborating with a few zinesters here on wmz to create 10-20 unique lit and art packs that have different pieces, works, lit and other ephemera inside.







Quarter-sized and/or mini zines are welcome, so are little flyers, ephemera, novelty items, poetry, photogtaphs,… Continue

Junk Drawer Zines in the Big Apple

Some Junk Drawer zines can now be found in New York City.

All are for sale at Bluestockings bookstore. They have a fine selection of books and zines, and a few Chicago zines. Junk Drawer issue #1 is in the zine library collection at ABC No Rio.

Both these places are on the Lower East Side, and are worth checking out. They are great supporters of independent writing and zines.…
