Bicycle cogset zine display holders

Hi all,

  I've been utilizing discarded bike parts to make zine holders. I posted a couple photos on my page here at We Make Zines. I'll have several for sale or trade at the Portland Zine Symposium. If anyone wants a specific color, I can make it for you.

 

I also have a two-tier display that I will donate to the PZS for their raffles.

 

Cheers,

Ryan

Punks, Body Piercers: Any Comments on the Sites Below?

I'm very interested in the process of co-optation and conventionalization in radical subcultures and intellectual, social and political movements.  I'm curious what members of the subcultures/practices below might have to say about these sites.

And, I'm just bored.

better to enter
a well lit room
empty of clutter.

Writer Looking for Zines

Mmm. I'm hoping this is acceptable, I hunted for awhile looking for some rule like "zines can call for submitters but not vice versa" and didn't find anything...

 

Anyway. My pen name is Stefani Vonne. I write a blog called The Porno Revolution which is my desires and experiences of mainly porn, sex, feminism, and bisexuality. I'm looking to write more, so I'm looking for zines which are about ... well porn,…
