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… Continue

It was Michael Jordan who helped popularize the term known as the "zone." That mental level of focus where you're able block out all the noise and any other distracting factor in your head that might prevent you from seeing the goal that is ahead of you.
I've kinda' been in the zone lately. I
don't at all mean to suggest that I am anywhere near the level of those whose mental discipline… Continue

I made a zine with my 5 year old son. It's called Butterfly Zine. It's about us watching some caterpillars grow into butterflies and is filled with photos and drawings we made, plus facts about butterflies. 16 pages, 1/4 size, full color. Want one? It's $2 (or a kid-friendly trade of some kind -- message me first). PO Box 330156, Murfreesboro TN 37133. …

So, in Sept, I will be moving to Philly. I'm really excited about this for a lot of reasons. I'm 30 and there are a million things I've never done, places I've never been, etc. Also as much as I love Tazewell, and it partially made me who I am, the opportunities are really limited here. Job and educational opportunities, of course, but also social ones. I love my family and friends and I feel so lucky to have the friends I do that I don't even have words to describe it (which is kind of ironic… Continue

'Larry' issue three is A5, 32 pages, black and white, and as always printed on recycled paper (though this time it's 120gsm paper as oppose to 80, so it's a little heavier...). Each copy is hand-tied, numbered, and has a little window cut out of a cartridge paper cover, this time using a sharper scalpel, but with a rather crooked ruler.
Content in this issue includes friendships, promiscuity, visual identity, a guide to the drawing technique of sgraffito, and a bunch of other… Continue

I may be wrong, but I don't think I've sent any of my zines to Turkey before. In fact, I think that the furthest into that part of the globe I've sent a zine order was Slovenia. Well, I have sent stuff to Israel, which is just south of there. Continue

This has been a long time coming. My eldest son is now 3 yrs old, and most of what I have written on here has come from things felt/experienced during the earliest of stages of parenthood. I love my boys. They are my world. Getting them here, that's a whole other story. This zine depicts just a few of the raw sentiments I felt necessary to explore in script. This was important for me, more so than sharing, but if you do by chance get to read this, remember it's personal, but not intended to be… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
"Defenestrate', is one weird word. It means to throw someone out of a window. The term likely comes from an incident in 1618, in Prague, when
two imperial commissioners were thrown from a window in the Palace of Prague. My question is this, what happened to the men.
Though the drop was some 30 feet or so, they landed in a… Continue

having difficulty keeping my head and short, precise, condensed and limited where possible the content and over all length of pending 'zine 'life as a white picket fence' so as to get it out and done like a bandaid! plus, shorter rants, i have concluded, short result in a higher likely hood that they will get read. SO, it will be. and quite possibly finished before the debut, as i am growing weary of its existence before it;s been born.. quite a worry really, eh?!
so it is, such is life,… Continue

Hello and welcome to August. I hope you all had as exciting and adventurous of a July as I did. It was great. But, goal for this month: hang out in
Olympia. I haven't been around that much and it's a bit of a shame since this is such a good place to be in the summer. So, other than
going to the Portland Zine Symposium (August 28th & 29th, see you
there?), I think I'm going to hold somewhat strong to this goal. Here at the distro, there are many goodnesses- music that spans… Continue

All zinesters may not feel the same way, but I love office supplies! My love for pens and mail organization has even lead some of my friends to call me an office punk.

Wow I've been busy. Yesterday I got a call from my guidance counselor who told me that I had a bunch of extra credits, which meant that I could graduate a year early, so this year will be my last year of high school! I'm really excited about that.
But I'm kind of worried about college. I really want to take the distro with me to college but I don't know how.. I know it's a bit early to be thinking about this, but I want to start planning, and making preparations.. How the…
