Dear People Who Give A Fuck About My Projects:
My life has been taking lots of unexpected turns with family type things that have been incredibly hard to deal with and stay sane and high functioning. Since I always hope my projects are collaborative in nature I feel like a giant douche not keeping people in the loop. I have gotten emails asking what is happening with these two projects so I wanted to write a formal update for everyone who actually cares. And the… Continue

So I've been inspired to make a zine myself.
It's going to be full of random medical and psychological stuff, it's already done.
I'll get some screenshots up soon.

I have 3 zines *so* close... they are all ready to print, except that I am still waiting to find out what my PO Box address will be, so I can't get them printed until I have that on them.
Ditto flyers. All designed and ready to print, but without address.
I've thought about getting them printed anyway, and adding the address when I get it, but the thought of handwriting them all fills me with horror!
If you want a sneak preview you can look… Continue

Well, I finished my 24 hour zine with 2 1/2 hours to spare. I worked from 10:00 last night to 9:00 this morning, slept till 1:00 this afternoon, and finished at about 7:30 tonight. I am EXHAUSTED! It think I drank between 6 and 10 cups of coffee in the last 24 hours.
I ended up writing a 24-page half-size zine that is simply called "24." It is a collection of 24 lists, each with a different topic and each with 24 items in it. They include "24 Things I Can See from Where I'm Sitting,"… Continue

I've healed enough from my tonsil surgery so that I can drink hot coffee again and I'm also not so tired and nauseous all the time, so I've decided to give The 24 Hour Zine Thing a try after all! I'd really been hoping to do it for the first time this year, but I was afraid I'd be too sick...so glad that I'm not!
I'm starting offically at 10:00 tonight, so 17 minutes from now! We ordered pizza at my house and I have to clean up a bit tonight, so I won't be spending 100% of the next… Continue

The latest zine I've produced is called Dreamy Vs Sucks
and I thought I'd write down how it all came together.
Like all the zines I've made lately this one was created with my good friend Brad (Bernard Boulevard
). The concept for the zine came to us months ago when we were brain storming ideas for our comic zine Chicken With Penis
, and during that time we would occasionally toss around different ideas on what the zine would be like. The only thing we really knew… Continue

Well, I just got back from the 2009 Portland Zine Symposium, and I wanted to give you all some praise. This was the first year I've volunteered for the event, and I was very impressed with the cooperative spirit and overall positive vibe of this year's event. I also wanted to thank everyone who donated a zine to the Olympia Library's collection- you know who you are, and I thank you a hundred million times over. See y'all next year...

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
It is the summer of 1943 in LA. All Hispanic Males (or any young men) wearing this, are being beaten up by servicemen. What are the guys wearing that is targeting them for this abuse?
Anyone wearing a Zoot Suit was beat up. Check out the Zoot Suit Riots!

It's been 8 days now since I had my tonsils removed. In those eight days, I was in the emergency room twice, once for dehydration, which resulted in a migraine and vomiting, and the second time for my throat bleeding. I've been bleeding from my throat on and off. It's really annoying. I just needed to vent and say that I'm sorry if you haven't gotten your trades and I still have a million zines to read and zinesters to write to. I will get to it. I'm just exhausted right now, not to mention I… Continue
