Vt. blog Bibliography Redux;retro hetro in the metro

most people who read this blog are probably wondering why i would use a site about zines to tell a completely boring unrelated story,that doesnt even belong here.well,first off,it is related to zines,because for me that was the situation of early exposure to actual making of art and zines.but also,its an interesting experience that was slightly cool and unique in the fact that it happened a long time ago and in a forieghn country,so not everybody has experienced it.therefore its probably…

Layout mixup

I just printed up Zero #6 (a 1/4-size 8-pager, the free version of a strip in Square Dance #5). The first print I did, one of the pages was pixelated, so I replaced it & reprinted. Then I noticed other pages had some digital-looking issues (I do my layout on the computer), realized they were all images I'd rotated so the zine would fold right, and fixed those (by using an actual command that…

I supplied the cover and concept, and Mane provided a killer mix that he describes as "kung fu music put to funk." I call it thirty minutes of ass-kicking wax-ploitation, complete with outta' sight Jim Kelly sound bites.…
