Poem as History – Passionate Love Poem from French Writer Flaubert
HISTORY POEMS. Here’s a type of poem we don’t often consider – history poems.
This is my poem that is a’Love Letter from the Novelist, Flaubert to Louise – August 15, 1849′. An actual letter, translated and turned into a poem. The words in parenthesis are added and not original to the letter.
I will cover you with love when next I see you.
(I will cover you) with caresses, with…

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…

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…Continue
I finally got my power back after 10 days...thanks to all the linemen and rescue workers in the Tristate area xoxo. I am taking submissions for Issue 4 of Cadillac Girl, which I am slowly trying to get together. No specific content. If you want to write about how Sandy has affected you, you certainly can...so far I have written about my experience with a pregnancy scare, divorce and social anxiety...a nice little mixture lol. Submit to…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

What are peoples thoughts on the e-zine? Are you against of for? and why? I'm writing my dissertation on this and would love to hear other peoples opinions on this subject.
There's this big book on zines at the Library (Powell's),and it's got all the cover's of all these zines from,like,1910 and shit,with stupid description's written next to them.It's a pretty awesome book though,mostly because it has pictures of all the cover's of Sniffin' Glue.That's probably the first zine ever,really.That and PUNK,with all the John Holstrom art and shit.It's pretty extensive,with some 70's zines,like sci-fi zines and shit like you used to get at comic convention's back…Continue
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. …Continue

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…
