a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Alot of people like to throw around big word's and point finger's these day's,judging what should and shouldn't be seen or done,in thier opinion.It's a cheap trick-an easy way to make yourself feel like your doing something.Everyone's got an opinion lately,and putting down other peoples stuff by slapping negative label's on it makes them seem validated.If your vague enough about what you say,and can make it stick,you can maybe organize a witch hunt,if your lucky.Cultural assimilation is one…Continue

The grow house was only 350 buck's a month.It got shot up by some Rollin 60's awhile ago.If you sat on the porch,junkies would hit you up for money and smokes,so they got a pit bull.It was 3 blocks off Alberta Street.They had another one a couple block's down-there were 10 1000 watt light's in each basement.Even I wouldn't live in them,so they just sat there,empty.We hung out there and partied,to make it seem like people lived there.Portland was different then-at least for me.Me and about 5…Continue

Time,to me,is meaningless.It could be yesterday,tommorow,next year,100 year's ago-it's a worthless concept.I just don't give a fuck.This whole joint could be a Philip K. Dick plot twist.I don't know.It's insignificant.I was living in California-North Oakland,to be exact.Right on Telegraph-it was a step up for me,from West Oakland-Ghost Town.I had this 19 year old girlfriend-real sweet,but kind of a bubble head.We rode around on beat up Schwinn's,smoking weed.I was drawing comic's.Protest's…Continue

Well,Real Madness Comic's 5 just came out,and it's the last issue of the 5 issue comic/zine series for Tim @ Teenage Dinosaur.I was just down at the tail end of The Projects 2,and I'm proud to say I sold one copy!It took a lot of time to finish-I started it in the rehab.Tim snuck me in a bunch of brushes and art supplies,and I had to wake up at 3 am to draw,before my 8:00 meditation class.I hid it from everybody,so it wouldnt get confiscated due to violent content,like happened to other…Continue

I opened an Etsy shop for my zines. It seemed like that was the easy thing to do for people who don't feel like trading and want to make sure their purchase is secure. Here is my spokesperson, an exaggerated Colonel Sanders crossed with Mark Twain, mixed with a '49er, to tell you the news:

'Confessions of a Type 40' started out as a perzine, originally titled 'Confessions of a Type 4' (Type 4 Personality on the Enneagram). Early in planning the layout, my father suggested to change 'Type 4' to Type 40' because I wanted to make the cover look similar to the TARDIS from Doctor Who, complete with customized door instruction.…Continue
Quizzical Quiz Question
The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Claude Monet, the great Impressionist painter, developed a style in later years he termed painting the ‘enveloppe’. What does that art term mean?
In most simple terms, it’s painting the atmosphere between the painter and the subject. Now that is a fascinating painting concept!
We had no eligible winner. Seems the paint thinner got to you on this one. I don’t dumb down so…Continue
