My Post Office Box Going Out of Business

At the end of this month (August 2010), I will no longer have a post office box in Lawrence, Kansas. In fact, I won't have a post office box anywhere. Please don't send me any mail via the US Postal Service.


I guess I'm kind of out of the zine business at the moment...

Zine Library + Distro + College

For the longest time I've been complaining about how there wasn't a zine scene here in Florida. So this week I decided to actually do something about it. I think that there needs to be a place like the IPRC and Boxcar Books here in Florida. There needs to be a space where people can just go to write or do art, and to make copies. I got two friends together and I pitched the idea, and they agree so we've started the process of incorporating, and when that's done we're going to file for tax… Continue

Submission deadline for Virgin #2 extended until September!

I put out a submission call for Virgin #2 (see here).


I've already received 6 absolutely incrediable submissions but I'd love more!


I realised that due to how my summer has turned out I'm not going to be able to work on this until the beginning of September so that gives you all another 2 weeks to submit! Please don't be…

Free Zine

SO I have an envelope laying around and it has a stamp stuck on it. I cannot remember what or to whom it was for, but since it already has a stamp on it, might as well send it on my next trip to the P.O.

right now it has a magazine cutout and my 24-hour zine. email at i_reply@live.com and get it for FREE.

what should the email say? i don't know! a random story about a random day. if i end up feeling generoud, maybe i'll pick out 2 or 3 stories :)

UPDATE ON CALGARY ZINE LIBRARY

For anyone curious about us:


The Zine Library was at the Good Life Community Bike Shop for several months, and it was in many ways a great success! However after a while it just wasn't working out, so it was moved into my (Samantha) home, The Dollhouse. The Dollhouse was both a punk house and a show space and for a year the zine library was there and many kids that came to the shows used it. I moved out of that house in May and now live in a different punk house that is…

List #14 is finished and at the printer! I'll have it back within a week, ready to mail out.



If you'd like to "pre-order" (give me a headstart on addressing envelopes and help me feel like i'm making back some of the printing costs upfront) you can do that now!



I'll ship out "pre-orders" the first week of September. I'm looking for more distros to work with as…

Truckface!

Very suddenly LB's Truckface has become one of my favorite zines. And now we carry them! Hoorah!

Truckface #10- This is what got me hooked on the goodness that is Truckface. There was a copy of it in the car on tour last spring and it got passed around until we'd all read it and were making jokes about "the most famous leaf of all," cracking…

House of Flying Zines Part 1

Just received an invite to have some of my publications included in a zine and self-published art mag exhibition at the Baltimore Book Festival in late September. Shout outs to Jim Lucio for the invite.



Amusingly, when I posted a few days ago about being invited to send some of my publications to the zine show in Istanbul, I was thinking to myself that it would be nice to get the chance to do that more often. I even started to post a comment… Continue

To the Pen Pals Group

Okay. I hope this isn't inappropriate or bad netiquette or anything, but I tried to "message" Hibou, the Pen Pals group owner, but it said I had to "be friends" first. I know this sounds ridiculously antiquated and cranky, but I have a problem with the whole "friending" thing on the Net, because I feel it trivializes and automates the ancient and organic institution of "friendship". Please allow an old fossil his Victorian quirks.

Sooooo.....I'm contacting Hibou this…
