Poems written in late October

Poems written in late October  2011 

Comments welcome.

[poem notes in brackets like this]




Their actions were

alien to me

like watching players

playing a game

where you don't know the rules

and nothing makes sense.


2. (Kid's poem)

no need to worry

no need to worry

when the  full Moon starts to fade.


no need to worry

no need to worry

Does anyone know Pippa from the UK?

I can't believe how long it's been since I updated things here. Since I last added photos or wrote, I've provided illustrations for a reading of "Herbert West, Re-Animator" at Monster Island Resort Podcast. (You can look and listen here: http://0316bfc.netsolhost.com/blog/?p=923). I had some of them made into postcards, which I'm selling at my Etsy shop.

I'm hoping to be able to start making more Monstress again, now…

Once Upon a Distro is Now Accepting Submissions!

I've been making zines since I was 15 - more than half of my life. At various points, zines have been a way for me to connect to communities that I didn't have access to, as well as being an important place for me to write about the stuff going on in my life. 

I've always written zines. I've always read zines. I've always wanted to do more. So, now I am. Once Upon a Distro is open for submissions starting now, and will be open for purchases and things starting in January of…

2012: The Revenge of Mail


Since 2011 was “the revenge of print” year perhaps 2012 could be “the revenge of mail”.

The US postal service is closing offices and reducing services, citing declining use of the postal service through unreliable statistics and touting budget shortfalls and general mismanagement. Who loses when post offices close? Everybody.

Now is the time to pick up a pen, find some paper, dust off the typewriter, write a letter. make some art, get in touch with a friend, or mail…

Musea weekly contest

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:This first musical conductor (before him it was usually the first violinist or organist) actually died from conducting!

First conductor kills himself conducting - name him

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:Here's a money art question. This is the only Vice President of the US featured on US Currency (that never served as President). Clue - the answer is personal.

IS: Thomas Andrew Hendricks the Vice President and Governor of Indiana. (my full name is Thomas Manley Hendricks). Growing up I was told we were related. More recent research in my family suggests that we just don't know for sure. My father's line goes back to…

random sentence poem

underneath the fatal accident jams our cozy heart

beside the bursting aneurysm unravels our contrivance

above the humming drone expires our blue faced reasons

before the exploding child our system blows a fuse

Rarely Written Zine Reviews - Episode II

True confession.

The majority of the following zine reviews were actually written over the end of June and the first week of July. Somewhere between a nasty bout of writer's block and finally gettin' my mojo back, I remembered that I had forgotten to post 'em. Since nobody has been waiting' around to read what I thought of their zines, the fact that I'm posting these much later than originally planned is no great travesty. But I do still feel a smidgen of guilt that these didn't hit… Continue
