NEW ART ZINE







I finished this back in July, and it has taken me this long to get around to posting it here.



The way that this zine was made:



First I did a very large very intricate drawing. Next I photocopied it. Next I cut up the photocopies to the size of the pages. Next I photocopied these pages, but what is cool is that I photocopied them onto the back of paper that was already used on one side. The side that we didn't want to see was folded in. Then I… Continue

Hand Me Down Zines

As part of our (hopefully) ongoing series on zineing, our good friend Eric Bartholomew, who writes a zine called Junk Drawer, gave us a few words on why he does what he does. Check it out if you can: http://www.diatribemedia.com/?p=224

"New" Zine Library Opening September 9th!

Hi there! I have been handed over the Welland Zine Library by Jen Pilles to move to Niagara College, my place of study, for students to take advantage of. I am right now in the process of updating and re-vamping the collection for the new school year (starting September 9th), and need your help!

I am especially lacking feminist, women's health, food, mental health and queer zines especially.



If you are interested in donating a copy of your zine, please message me or e-mail… Continue

THE PHYSICAL MEADOW -- By Mike

“The Meadow” has been written in a very extraordinary way. For example, there was never any intention to bring the story into manuscript format. It was only after my encounter with Elfreda that it became a reality and, between us, we prized the idea out of my head and onto a hard drive. Even when we began writing the story, there was never an outline laid out for the whole thing. Outlines were only prepared for each chapter as we took them step by step.



I remember Elfreda… Continue

Two Important Bio Papers on the idea of "Zinc World"

Musea E-mail Club #483 Zinc World



Readers,



This week's e-mail club message is a special one for me. I

heard from Dr. Mulkidjanian, concerning two new science papers he has

recently published. They talk about his ideas for a ZINC WORLD, and

how zinc may have played an important role in the start of life.

And not only does it support some of the ideas I had,

but he even mentioned me in the acknowledgments​.​

So it is a real honor to pass on the… Continue

Maximizing the use of computer in term paper writing

Many of the older generation of students are bemoaning the fact that students nowadays have it easy. Now if they have term paper work they wouldn't have to slog through manual typewriters (or handwritten even) but can just boot up their computers and do their work. Researching for students nowadays also means browsing through the internet and searching for websites instead of going through tons of books at the library.



Of course, having computers is not useful if the users would not… Continue

So What's With the Vampires?

Based From the Movie Twilight



Just recently, the youth became so into the Twilight phenomenon. No doubt, this series have really captured the interest of the young generations. A lot of teenagers where so into it that they even got the thought of finding their own Edward Cullen or Bella Swan.



But what's with the series and the vampire thing that made these youngsters get hooked into it? Perhaps a research paper about this would become a hit!

ZINE PAR-TAY!

Yeee-haw! So finally "released" the SUMMER zine last night! Midnight Swim - 9 pm, Oakesdale Pool!



It basically consisted of remembering to put the stack of neon-covered zines of the table that the sound system was on. Man, I had to take a quick break from DJ-ing to snatch em' out of the Blazer.



But it seemed to go over pretty well. Most of the kids that attended the hang-session at the pool were from different schools, so they didn't really know what "the zine" was. (But… Continue

THE SPOTTED COW

No guessing what the title is referring to. The Spotted Cow probably fits into the top ten of country pub names that are dotted around the UK and Channel Islands. However, there is one Spotted Cow which has a relevance and energy all of its own. In years to come, I wonder how much of this short story holds an irony which proves very special.



"The Meadow" novel features locations all around the world, and different times in history. Its characters are more than colourful… Continue

How do I make a quarter sized zine?

Indigo has always been half sized, which is relatively easy to set up in MS Word and then cut & paste. Issue #17 done and ready to print, but it's a double issue, and I want to make the second part a quarter sized zine. Can anyone offer any advice/tips/techniques? Thanks!

Mental Health Zines

I'm a member of this group for a good reason. All people, mental illness or no, deal with feelings of alienation, loneliness, heartbreak, chaos, anxiety, and paranoia to a certain degree. I know--I'm definitely not mincing words here. Nonetheless when I'm lonely or down, it has often been mental health-related art that has transcended me from my problems. I honestly feel that when people laugh at others with mental illness, they don't even know what they're laughing about. Their laughter is… Continue

Girl Photographer Four



I've completed a 24 hour zine challenge zine - unintentionally! I should have got it done weeks ago but it ended up being a last minute crazy dash before the Ffotogallery Book Arts Fayre on Saturday. This issue is full colour, quarter sized and 24 pages long - a mite smaller than usual since I made it in such limited time.



Girl Photographer 4 features a story about being an extremely un-corporate person attempting the early morning London… Continue
