seeking submissions for a zine about living car-less

I am planning on creating a zine tentatively titled: "walking through a car-driven world"



The premise of it is an attempt on my part to reflect on my impending car-less-ness in a state that does not have a reputation of good public transportation (all we have are buses, that are not known for their reliability, in RI), and gain inspiration from other people who go car-less…

Kung Fu Grip! #3B: Super Special Edition

When I was a snot-nosed third grader, I was super envious of one of my classmates who had this folder that he'd decorated with the Marvel Comics Super-Hero stickers. Between 1974 and 1976, the Topps Chewing Gum Company produced a senses-shattering assortment of Marvel hero decals sold…

Time Passes

I found the box containing my zine collection the other day. I spent the rest of the day thumbing through my favorites, sorting them into piles, absorbing their zine-ness... and let me tell you, it was a very good day.

The past few days have been spent reading, looking up distros online, and making lists of what I'll get when I have money again. I've also looked through my old sketch book and jotted down notes and ideas for several new zines. 

Which brings me to today. I logged…

Call for Submissions!

hi all,

i am putting together a new compilation zine and would very much like your contributions! 



the theme is pathology, inspired both by my job in a hospital and a giant pathology textbook i couldn't resist buying.  pathology can refer to the study of disease, viruses and bacteria, cancers and infections--but it can also evoke 'normal' or 'typical' reactions or expressions taken to an extreme ('pathological gambling', etc.). 

of course, this definition of…

A Conversation with P.nitas*

http://www.twentyfourhoursonline.com/#!/2012/04/conversation-with-spanish-artist-pnitas.html

 

P.nitas* is a gutsy feminist artist from Barcelona. Her drawings and paintings are funny and a little off. I interviewed her for Twenty-Four Hours. This is in both English and Spanish. Enjoy!

Get your copy of FAT-TASTIC! #2

Two years ago I decided to put together a compilation zine that celebrated loving your body. A place where people could share stories, rants, and artwork about body image. I was very excited about the feedback I received from the first issue. It felt good to be  part of something that people found both comforting and uplifting.…

8-TRACK MIND #101 review

This following is a small review of the new issue of Twilight World:

8-Track Mind #101 $3

(no address given)



Can fragments of the old and obsolete of decades past like the 8-track tape format be seriously considered beyond nostalgia? It’s a basic idea a lot of people can’t get their collective heads around….much less know what 8 track tapes are.



I knew what they were, but until I found 8 Track Mind, I didn’t see much in them either. I’m not much of an audiophile…
