Write More Letters patches

Write more letters patches Some of the patches I made sold already, so I printed some more to sell online. I made my peace with the fact that screen-printing without the proper equipment and the screen just resting on some newspapers is never going to produce perfect results. The patches are available in blue or black on…

The "Gift Economy"

I recently finished reading Charles Eisentstein's Sacred Economics .  It's a pretty in-depth look at how we might transition to a non-monetary society, and an examination of money-less societies of the past and how we got into the huge economic mess the world is in now. In keeping with the theme of the book,  you can read the whole thing for free online.



As zinesters, we know all about the gift economy and…

Click Clack Distro is closing. Free Shipping and Zines.

I am sad to announce that Click Clack Distro will start the process of closing down shop. Due to my work schedule, I can no longer put as much energy into the distro as I thought I could. If I cannot give this 100% then I don’t believe that it is right to keep going.

As of now I can no longer accept international orders. I apologize for this, but USPS requires that you go to a clerk during open hours for international shipments, and I can no longer make it during that time, especially…

'The Screever' issue two

A good three years after the first issue, me and Nat finally managed to complete the barely anticipated second issue of 'The Screever'. This one is A6, 40 pages long, and has a tonne of pretty cool people / stuff in it, such as folk-punk-troubadour Elly Kingdon, Stourbridge based experimental label Carnage Club, the wonders of 'National Theatre Live', awesome Birmingham-based publication Zine Arcade, and a tonne of…

Capitalism vs. Creativity

I figure when your putting out a zine,you can at best hope to cover your cost's,and that's about it.You might be able to make a little change to cover the time you spent putting it together,but probably only if you price it really high.That will probably hinder distribution,so your going to end up with the same amount of a different problem.You could get it printed at a real print shop,but you'd have to print up ton's of copies and spend a bunch of money,which there is a slight possibility…

White Boy's Club Breakout

I was watching Taxi Driver the other day-I seen that flick more times than John Hinkley Jr.-and it really made me miss the Lower East Side.Martin Scorcese filmed that over on 10th street,by 3rd Avenue.Harvey Kietel look's like he's about 21 in it.That flick,to me,is punk as fuck.That's just my opinion,but I swear it was the first mohawk.Punk is definitely a matter of opinion.What some people might think is punk,other's might think is just bullshit.You can't really define it.Afro punk was a…

Bands Out

Why Bands are Boring and Rock is Over

This is a response I gave to a newsgroup discussion on rock:

Musicians that choose bands, are choosing safe music – music that doesn’t make waves, music bleached of all originality, traditional music, fill in the blanks. They are cowards, conservatives, and are striving to fit in, not stand out. Time to either drop rock and roll or go back to its roots and play it right. When we say no to bands we force musicians to be creative again, and…

Thou Shalt Not Talk About The White Boys’ Club: Challenging The Unwritten Rules of Punk

after over a year in the making, this zine is finally finished!

Thou Shalt Not Talk About The White Boys’ Club: Challenging The Unwritten Rules of Punk

Touted as being a home for society’s rejects, outcasts, and ‘alternative’ political stances, punk unfortunately often ends up reinforcing oppressive mindsets and ideals by setting up numerous…

Junk Drawer at the Milwaukee Zine Fest

At zine fests I've had something called Guess the Odds & Ends, which is kind of a game where you try to guess what things are.  But this time, for the Milwaukee Zine Fest, I forgot all my odds & ends at home.  I had to scrounge around, and fortunately I had enough other random things with me that I was able to keep the game going. …

How the perfect shop became a tragic waste

An average indie band once said: modern life is rubbish. And, in a case of rare agreement between Damon Albarn and I, I tend to agree. Much that previously demanded care and attention - conversation, publishing, slagging people off using clever similes - has been undermined by a simultaneously callous and over-calculated age.



So outposts where these outlooks have been shunned are few and far between and should be cherished. Last week, I discovered one…
