Don't know if you get many people on here just entering into the whole dipping-my-toes-into-the-water phase of zine making/reading (i'm attempting to do both) but my first attempt at making my own zine turned out...let's just say, amateurish. Truthfully, i mishmoshed it all together collage-style (clippings from magazines and papers) in two days, and put it together with a paper-mache-like glue, and thread binding.
I tackle things headlong and without… Continue

So tonight I was comforting my little cousin who had gotten hurt pretty badly "play fighting" on a trampoline, and as he became more calm, we turned on the t.v. to cartoon network. Now, seriously, there are a thousand and twelve things about children's television that bother the hell out of me, and I've decided to start speaking out about them when they catch my attention.
Tonight, well, we were watching some Scooby Doo movie butchering the awesomely retro 70s animation with… Continue

Humor, politics, poetry, comics, horror, sci fi and more from other small presses that we would prefer to recycle. Just ask for the FLEA MARKET and make your check for $5.75 payable to Twin Rivers Press, P.O. Box 119, Ellenton FL 34222. If you want to send us samples of your zine to include in our Flea Market orders, that's fine, too.

I've spent a fair amount of time searching on-line and not found many zines or zine distros in Germany. I found quite a few at Cafe Nixda in Mainz in 91 when I was a student there. They even had their own zine "Dichtung und Wahrheit." There're Infoladen in Frankfurt (Arbeitslosen Verband), Mannheim (Juz) and something at the Karlstorbahnhof in Heidelberg - if only I can get some time to go and check these out. For now I'm reading American zines.

The second issue of Larry is finally finished, albeit about a week overdue; it's A5, 28 pages, black and white, and photocopied on 100% recycled paper. Once again, they're hand tied, and have hand cut windows in the cartridge paper covers using the same rather blunt craft knife (I really must buy a new one...)
This one has waffling on opportunities, relationships, communication, and a couple of other things. I made thirty copies and would love to… Continue

My distro, False Start (http://www.false-start.com
) has a new events page that is looking rather sparse right now. So if you have a cool DIY, zine, art, music or political event going on, please shoot us an email (info AT false-start DOT com) with all pertinent info and we'll post it up there!
And remember, there's a sale going on for the month of March only...hurry up and place your order before the month is through!

Just a quick note to everyone who sent stuff in for Carpe Noctem 5- I just found out that I have to move out of my house, so the zine will be delayed while I find a new place to hang my hat.

Hendricks calls it the "Trendy Versus Quality" 200 song challenge. He's suggested that NPR can choose any 200 recent songs covered on NPR versus his best of world music on the internet list.… Continue
