ANOTHER old-new camera!

My uncle, seeing my sudden interest in photography, gave me ANOTHER old-fashioned camera and it was the one he started off with! It takes batteries that are pretty hard to find, but otherwise works great! It's a canon, and even has a zoom lens (my other one doesn't, you just have to aim and shoot). It came with two lenses, tons of black and white film, and a camera bag, but I'm not sure the magnification of the lenses. This weekend I'm gonna look for things to take pictures of; I'll most likely… Continue

old-new camera, issue #2 ideas, and asking for zine reviews!

Wow, you won't believe how excited I am!!! On Friday, at a farmer's market that's kind of near my house (it sells some cool antiques) I was looking through a bunch of crates of junk some guy was selling, and I found an old-fashioned camera that actually uses film! It looked like it was in working condition so I asked him how much it was, and he sold it to me for only $3.00. So I took it home, and asked my mom if she had any film from her old camera. She gave me a roll of colour and a roll of… Continue

Independence Day

I feel stupid for saying it--well, more for feeling it: I'm feeling homesick today and it's partly because it's the Fourth of July, a holiday I've always been kind of ambivalent about. Anyway, have some fun, some fireworks and watch the sunburn for me, while I celebrate my Independence. Maybe I can rustle up some Loyalists in downtown Toronto.



Wish I were there. (Martin Van Buren State Park, Lake Michigan).



Update: Independence… Continue

Home

I've been thinking about home more and more recently... like I said, the fact that I am away from home, family, and friends didnt really hit me until just very recently--which is over a year and a half since I made my big stupid move.



So anyways, a friend have made me realize that I haven't really experienced a lot of things back home. I mean heck, I lived in an archipelago, made up of thousands of islands, but I have never once gone to any of the beaches there. My university there… Continue

Weird Procrastination Inversion

So yesterday I planned on working on the monster drawings I am going to submit to the coloring book issue of Lucky Creature Attacks. And instead of drawing, I procrastinated by doing actual boring work. I unpacked this box that's been sitting in my bedroom since I moved over a year ago. It's not like I needed anything in that box, either. I think it's just that I want to draw something different and I want the finished… Continue

Bitches, Bimbos and Ballbreakers

Okay so I noticed that the university bookstore was having a bargain sale, and me, being the ever impulsive buyer have decided to wander around... it was lucky though that even though this means im a few bucks poorer, I found something that's actually quite interesting, the book: Bitches, Bimbos and Ballbreakers by the Guerilla Girls, which is quite an old book but nevertheless interesting. I've only browsed through the pages, but will probably post a review as soon as I finish going through… Continue

Helen Mirren review + the new dumb/SULK trigg-er microzine

I wrote another review last week for the Big Issue (a British newspaper sold by homeless vendors, with them keeping 80p of the £1.50 cover price).



It was for a live High Definition broadcast at our local cinema of a National Theatre production of 'Phedre', starring Helen Mirren (who played the Queen) and some dood out of that 'Mamma Mia!' movie:

Musea E-mail club #477 Major New Publication on Puccini by Fellow Zinester

Readers,



Fellow zinester Iris J. Arnesen, editor of "The Opera Glass" has just announced the release of a new major work on Puccini's operas titled "The Romantic World of Puccini: A New Critical Appraisal of the Operas" ($45 from publisher McFarland & Company).



It's always a treat for me, when zinesters I know and trade with, get published. Iris's book is now available for pre order at Amazon Books and I'm sure it'll be widely available soon.
