another new zine: functionally ill #5

Functionally ill #5 is out! It's about being rediagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, applying for Medi-Cal, dealing with bureaucracy, what my anxiety feels like, and losing services. There's a lot packed into this small issue. So get in touch if you're interested in trading!

Special Book Issue Out in JUly

Hi,
Hope all is as well as can be. Mishap #27 will be the book issue wherein various people offer up their favorite titles and also tell us about those books that changed their outlook or lives in some way. It isn't too late to get in, if'n you want.
I'll have them ready for the Portland Zine Symposium the end of July but probably not before.

Adult Themes is DONE!

I just finished doing layout for Adult Themes, and I am super excited about the cover!



I am also excited about my writing in the zine, although by the time it was all done, I really needed synonyms for moan, clit, cunt, cock, and rub. I am in awe of sex writers who can come up with unique descriptions for sexual body parts and actions. I ended up resorting to using "prick" and "dick", two words I'm not all that fond of.



In any case, the zine is all laid out. Within… Continue

Crone-ing

I'm trying to race ahead with Crone as my husband wants to get it printed next week. Monday and tuesday are his last days at HSBC and his last chance to print it. The situation with photocopyng at the Home Office is up in the air. He reckons it'll be fine; I'd rather not risk it for a while because, ya know, the Home Office. But I did go to a photocopiers in Machynllyth. I didn't really get the full details: there was a police officer in there, interviewing the shop owner about… Continue

2009 Zines 101 A zine making workshop SUCCESS!!!!

Wooohoo!!!The zine workshop today was great! No that's an understatement, it was.......SUPER! We were seven strong, mostly friends/acquaintances who frequent the cafe we were at. I was a little nervous despite knowing everyone....okay so i was really nervous. I gave a brief talk on the history of the zine, asked a question or two around the table, then we got sticky! After browsing some zines in my collection to get everyone acquainted with the numerous… Continue

Awesome evening in Aix-en-provence

I already wrote few pages in Cheaptoys #2 about la Fanzinothèque birthday party, and a lot of people could count it better than me, but last week-end was really awesome, and not so far away (from me !). Mort-né fanzine from Aix (south of france) put out an event with all the artist from the zines, in the Baba's bar.

Even if I think that, most all the people were not zinesters, or maybe don't really now what a zine is (who does ?) It was a really… Continue

black light diner distro update, june 2009

Hey, this is just a heads-up on the new zines and comics available at Black Light Diner Distro!









HIGH ON BURNING PHOTOGRAPHS #4 (Pittsburgh, PA)

Ocean's personal zine is a text-heavy meditation on such topics as sobriety, coming out, tough girls, and voluntary spinsterhood, all wrapped up in a scrappy cut-and-paste layout. The highlight of the zine, for me, is an incredibly moving… Continue

Almost gone!

Just noticed that there are only a few issues left of the first issue of Basic Paper Airplane and thought I'd put that fact out there. It comes with a totally weird mix CD and a fully functional paper airplane.

Also noticed that we're also down to our last copy or two of:

A wee bit annoyed

I got "Stolen Sharpie Revolution 2" in the post today, through the CornDog distro. I love it; from the size of it, to the content and the way it's laid out. It's a gorgeous book and I can see it being useful for quite a while.



But, there was one sentence that rather annoyed me. It's on page 57 and is the last sentence: "They are also a great way to keep your parents from reading your mail." I'm a parent. I'm 48 and my daughter is 22 and I would never, ever dream of opening her… Continue

Musea E-mail Club #476 Suing Your Best Cusomers (music biz)

Readers,

I want you to compare these two news articles:



http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Jury-rules-against-Minn-woman-apf-510228957.html?x=0&sec=topStories&pos=main&asset=&ccode=



The first "Jury Rules Against Minn. Woman in Download Case" tells about how one woman was fined $1.92 million for file sharing. She 'willfully violated the copyrights on 24 songs' and is fined $80,000 per song! This award is an outrage. Can you imagine anyone doing less harm,… Continue

What Folks Are Saying About Mistaken for Straight

I've been getting positive feedback about Mistaken for Straight. It's really gratifying when people say nice things about my writing and zines.



This is what my friend Dixie (an awesome cool poet, witch, teacher, mentor, and all around rad woman) wrote to me in an email:



I really like your new 'zine. I think it is one of your very strongest and best thus far. I was impressed by your courage and by the amount of objectivity you displayed in describing your… Continue

New Shoes

The little girl had just been given a new pair of shoes. Her last pair she had outgrown with holes in the toes. Left alone with her new possession, she had to figure out how to get the plastic string connecting them OFF.

She searched around for something sharp, but those kind of things were kept well out of reach from the children. Unsupervised, she ran around the living quarters, looking for something, finally spotting it on a nearby end table. A shiny red lighter beside a pack of… Continue
