and yet another excerpt from my perzine "EXTRANJERO" #7 By Kris about my first trip back to the USA in 3 years

5 April: A lot of friends and family members are coming over tonight to say hello and get drunk and whatnot. So my mother, Lola and I go to the supermarket (after another big breakfast! – this time it was Southern biscuits and gravy). At the supermarket I get another unexpected shock. We don´t have much variety in Plasencia´s supermarkets. If we want to make something “special” - like Mexican or Japanese food - there is quite a bit of preparation that goes into finding what we need. (There is… Continue

Some pictures...

I had a tremendously awesome 24 Hour Zine Thing & Reading at my library, and I took some pictures during the reading. I wish I had thought to take pictures during the zinemaking portion of the event, which had over 20 attendees including an 8 year old and a 78 year old. At least 8 of the attendees completed zines (including the 8 year old!). The reading had over 40 attendees. I was boggled at the event's success, which was mostly due to the draw of 6 great zine readers...…

Jazz Quarterly #2

As my surname implies, I consider myself a journalist, not to mention a REPORTER. So as a side project to the creative writing project class at the IPRC (that I may or may not be a part of) I am going to continue working on writing about my passion of jazz music and beat culture--some of the true stuff of Portland that I cannot deny any longer! Zines aren't just about fictional self-indulgent bullshit; it's my opinion that they should also inform the reader. Hence the "journalist" moniker. Need… Continue

Catchall update.

I moved (again) to the next town over (again), but I work all the time. I have been dragging out zines that I have loved (or zines that randomly I've had for years and haven't read). I miss creating and am going to (sometime in the near future) take all of my brain poopings (journals, drawings, etc) and stick 'em on some pages and take them to the printer. Be prepared.

Musea E-mail Club #481 Big News in Biology? Catabolic Anabolic Division

Some of you know I have a great interest in biology. This post is about some recent ideas that I have had that I think may be new and important. I'm going to take some time on the introduction, so it will make more sense to you. Please bare with me.



Let's start with metabolism. That's the chemical processes in all living things.

Metabolism is divided into two categories. These are important for you to know before the rest of this makes sense. They are CATABOLISM, and ANABOLISM.… Continue

I-Phones

What the hell is with these things? Is Apple really that desperate for money? I mean, c'mon, why would you need any of that shit in the first place? Um...there's this thing you can carry around called a LAPTOP. To simplify even further, there is internet connection, laptop or no. People who are this hooked on technology deserve to be condemned. And coming from me, that is a very extreme comment. I barely ever condemn anybody unless they've done something very horrible to me. But when you're… Continue

another excerpt from my perzine "EXTRANJERO" about my first trip back to the USA in 3 years By Kris

3 April: After about 5 hours of sleep I´m wide awake & quietly get out of bed & walk out into the sunroom. The sun is just coming up over the horizon & I spot 3 deer grazing on some of the bushes in my parent´s back yard. My father is making a pot of coffee & telling me that the local deer have been wandering down into their yard &, much to my mother´s dismay, eating everything in sight.

'community' zine callout

Apologies if you receive this more than once...



I am currently putting together a new zine about 'community'. I want to know what you think. What is your vision for change? Is a strong, healthy community part of this? Why is this important to you? How do you think we could grow to have this? How could we make real your dreams of better worlds? Share your words and pictures and dreams with me!



feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions/ wanna chat about… Continue

The Indomitable Keith Rosson

"The Best of Intentions Avow Anthology" is fucking incredible. Keith Rosson's short stories are profound, profane, pro-active and professional--not to mention entertaining and amusing as hell! This book is well worth the $12, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants something meaningful and yet fun to read. If you're unsure about buying it, just read a few of the stories and look at some of the pieces of awesome artwork and you will realize that Rosson is a transcending zinester. You don't… Continue

Just getting started

Hey ya'll. I'm just getting started with what I hope will be a three-part zine. It's actually going to be published all together as a book, but I want to get it out there as much as possible - I'm not doing this to make a crap-load of money, I just wanna help people understand mental illness and it's treatment. So, if anyone knows how I can get started cause it's basically written and I just wanna get out there! Thanks for your help!

New Stuff!

I have been neglectful over here and decided to fix that particular faux pas. Anyway, I recently got a book entitled Whatch Mean? What's A Zine? Very cool book and I would recommend it to anyone here. Because of that I have started a new mini zine called Doug Life. There was this neat way to fold and cut a single piece of paper to make a zine that I have implemented for Doug Life. The first one is done for anyone who wants to trade. I also have a new issue of my Fu-Manchu mini called Fu-Manchu… Continue

For reasons I don't really want to go into here,it is very -very- unlikely that I'll be posting any more art.

As soon as I find out how to delete My Page I will.
