Bear Pussy helps me understand myself

When I started Bear Pussy I had no idea what it was going to be about. As a matter of fact, I put it off for a very long time because I felt I would have nothing intresting to say. Zines are a reflection of the creater. Since I have Borderline Personality Disorder, it was very hard for me to figure out what I should put in here, since I don't have a sense of who I am. Suprisingly the zine has helped me have a better understanding of myself and what bothers me. It has a piece on the frustration… Continue

our last contest question of:



To boost ratings and keep from closing, this 1835 American Newspaper started a series of article about creatures on the moon. The first told of an astronomer looking through the world's newest and biggest telescope. (Later they wrote that the telescope was 200 feet across and weighed 14,826 pounds). He saw rivers and a tropical jungle. The initial article left the reader there. Then followups filled in the… Continue

New Guitar Style

Readers,



This e-mail is about my guitar playing. I think I've developed an original style in this area and I wanted to tell you about it.



Most singer/songwriters do one of two methods of playing the guitar. They either strum chords while singing, or finger pick a certain pattern while they sing.



My history is that of a lead electric guitar player in a number of combos from the 60's on. So I love that classic rock and roll sound with that passionate mix of rhythm… Continue

The New "FILM GEEK"

I haven't put out an issue myself in nearly seven years, and that's just too long! Just about all my "so called" modern equipment is useless to me now, and I have to start all over. The only thing that still works is my copier I bought in 1999. I'm sure eventually I'll get my printers back up (or replace them), but for now I'll just work with what I have. To put out a new issue old school might be what I need at this point.



I got to the point of sending out thousands of copies of my… Continue

What do you think?

So, while the options are limited on what you can do with a blogger page, we did some layout work to try to make the distro easier to read/use, a little prettier... Any thoughts? Anything you'd like to see?

I 've been wondering if people would like it better if the side links were separated by what type of thing they are (zine, handmade book, cd, tape, record), or if that would just get jumbled and confusing.

Would love to hear what people think. Thanks! -MVP/JJ...… Continue

lines of communication in regards to organizing events

if you are organizing events, you should alot time to reply with care to requests and queries. If several people are having the same problem and don't receive responses and also need information...maybe you should organize somehting simpler that allows you time to be courteous enough to not leave people hanging on multiple occassions.

But it's done, tradition as the justification for religious innovation in English Christianity, discuss with 2 or 3 examples. Phew!I actually really enjoyed writing it.
