This Week’s Quizzical

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

Here’s an artist’s trick you learn if you are going to paint or draw a realistic portrait of someone. Do you know it? How far apart are the eyes of a person in a portrait? (Picasso’s 2 eyes on the same side of the nose does not apply here!)

Zines and Violence in Portland, Oregon

There is not a lot of violence in zines.There's probably some violent slogan's in some anti-government zines,but they're pretty vague and not very inter-personal; smash the state,hate capitalism,that kind of stuff.You don't find a lot of examples of zines being directly connected to violence.That's why what happened to me the other night is all the more fucked up.I did a poster for my friend's band,and he said I should come check out his gig at a house party. I don't go out to punk show's…

A Punk Rock Manifesto

A Punk Rock Manifesto

I have never owned a record label, nor directed a successful merchandise company, so I don't pretend to be an expert on marketing. I have evolved through my craft as a songwriter, but others have labeled it and marketed it and made it neat for consumption.

Although I have made money from Punk, it is a modest amount when one considers the bounty that has been bestowed on the companies that…
