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

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 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

Musea E-mail Club #483 Zinc World
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

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
Pizzicato is when the string player plucks
the strings instead of using a bow. This
classical composer's 3rd movement of one of his
symphonies had the string section play
pizzicato throughout. Name the composer
and the symphony.
The third movement of the 4th symphony by
Pyotr IllyichTchaikovsky (1877-78). It is
a delightful piece of music - check it… Continue

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

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!

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

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

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!

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

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.

1/4 perzine, 80 pages
$3 or trade for some of your zines. This be a text heavy zine.
Sew I taught myself how to sew and it's sew easy and that's how I bound my zine. I won't needle you with anymore sewing puns, but let me know how you felt...thimble.
EMJ #4 is about meeting a woman who tells me of this story of when she went to Australia, buying balloons, and getting my bike stolen.

Billy the Bunny (loop distro), Kate (Sandler) and I have been having various discusses among ourselves over the past few weeks on the nature of zines, what’s changed over the past years, and the direction of where they might be going in the future. We decided to take some of the finer points from our conversations and write them down to hopefully start an interesting discussion. I'd love to get some other people's thoughts. Check out what Billy has to say here:… Continue
