Next project?

I've written so many things for (mostly) bi small press / ziney things in the last fifteen years. 

I think I should maybe do a compilation zine of the best bits.  If there are any best bits (feel the fear of looking back over your own old work!)

What I hope to do.

What I'm envisioning is this:

A zine in which I explore everything that I think when it comes to my body and my sexuality. From examining all the corners and digging up the dirt, and searching out those nooks and crannies I intend on creating on honest look at myself.

The Challenge? I would love to integrate other persons experiences, but I'm not sure how that would work out. Primarily because I want to do justice to each topic and not just glance over it.

Musea issue #181 is running late

The August Musea, is late - really late - hasn't even started it, late.Sounds like every other zine intro right?  Summer music recording and such has put me off schedule. In the meantime go to the blog for updates or this blog, or my Facebook, or the Musea or Hunkasaurus website.
Have a great summer,Tom Hendricks (editor of the 19 year old zine Musea)

ZINECORE Radio ends December 2011......

I have ALOT of creative projects that have been less and less successful because I spread myself so thin I can’t give each project it’s respected focused energy needed to have my envisioned outcome. As hard as this is for me I need to learn that letting go is okay. It’s okay to put projects that mean a lot to me on hold if it means I am not able to make way for new &…

The Weekly Troll, Volume 1, Issue 2!

Issue 2 was first published on February 2, 2011: the same day that Governor Vuvu declared a state of emergency! It wasn’t because Issue 2 came out, but we certainly like to think so. It was because it was so damn cold in New Mexico most people didn’t know what to do. Besides, this was out most classiest issue– It only has the fuck-word in it… Continue

Hello Online Zine thing

I'm not much of a blogger but I figured I'd put something on this here ole' page so as it not be completely empty. It would be quite funny for a person to have no information or writing or anything on their "I Make Zines" page so I guess I'll give a general over view of who I am. I'm a punk kid/man/person who lives in Seattle. I play in bands and am into general DIY cliches like dumpster diving and thrift shoping. Hmm I collect old video games and records....I like to cook. I'm a vegetearian…
