punks is hippies - the blog!

this website is awesome! it's 'sort of' a zine archive, mostly into punk zines.

they have lots of old zines, back from the 90s and 80s, but they also have some "contemporary" (aka 2000s) zines.

though i'm not that much into punk, it's amazing the work these guys are doing in scanning old zines and making them available online for… Continue

Sweet Candy Distro - Winter 09

Happy Winter Sweet Candy friends!

It's been awhile since I have sent out distro updates. Did you think I disappeared? No way! My son was born in August so I've been quite busy with a baby, homeschooling my daughters, as well as rockin' the work-at-home mama status. I decided to re-organize the distro and start fresh. Perfect timing with the New Year coming up fast.

No major changes, just asking for extra patience when you send me your zine for review. My goal is to get… Continue

Zine Trades

This is my favourite way to distribute copies of my zine, and get copies of other peoples'. Since I signed up here in the summer, it's been going pretty well, but lately, I've noticed that I'm sending a lot of stuff out and not getting much back. Maybe it's just that it's getting cold out and no-one wants to leave their house.

I just sent out a few emails asking some people if they've received my zines, because I know that's how I used to keep track of trades - by sending back… Continue

Cheaptoys reviewed !

ok, here are some reviews, by Amber of Fight Boredom/Culture Slut

Cheaptoys #4

Although the majority of this issue is written in French, Gizmo has used a few pages to practice his English. As it happens, I use his zine to practice my French. This issue is mostly typewritten and laid out cut and paste style. Giz writes about being vegan in France, which is a rarity, and cooking vegan meals for local show-goers. This made me happy because I actually just went to a show last week… Continue

Radical Mycology!

Just added a pretty awesome Olympia zine called Radical Mycology, which will teach you a good percentage of things you might want to know about mushrooms. Not one of the classic zine subjects, I know, but that's what makes it so good. Check it out. Totally recommended if it's something you're at all interested in. http://msvaleriepark.blogspot.com/2009/12/radical-mycology-zine.html

My new zine...

Hi, I'm part of a writers group in Melbourne, Australia and we've just published a zine of short stories called southpaw grammar. It features work by Benjamin Solah, Sam Stoker, Ben Pearmain, Alex Ettling and Frankie Cole, who've tackled topics from failed dates to fishing, vegan extremes to the undead.

If anyone would like to trade with us that would be rad... sends your to

I made a new zine

Hi All! I just joined the We Make Zines board yesterday, and I have been reading and trying to find an appropriate way to make a post about my new zine... so I am writing this blog!

I used to be very involved in the zine community, and I wrote zines like "rock star with words", "the remainder of zero" and "there is still a chance for us". And in the late 90s I also made a lot of zines that I won't mention :) Anyways, it's been a few years since I've made a zine I've really put out… Continue
