This issue talks about an abusive relationship and getting out of it, first sexual encounters, sexual and emotional abuse, the basics of BDSM and how it
differs from abuse, queer identity, and silence, among other things. The
quote translates to "Pain and death are less involuntary than the
choice of desire."

So, about a month ago we started an Etsy page
and we've been slowly adding more and more to it. While it represents less than half our stock, it does seem a little more focused towards to the interest of our fellow zinesters and has a bettter shipping scale than our website, especially for international orders. We're setting up a new website, which will have a better shopping cart, but until then, I might point you folks who want to… Continue

It was super cool to be at the Chicago Zine Fest. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Junk Drawer table. I'm glad people enjoyed playing "Guess the Odds & Ends." I only wish I'd had more time to spend at all the other tables. There were so many great zines and zinesters there. Feel free to write your comments about the zine fest, junk drawers, or anything from the zine fest weekend. Looking forward to next year.

Well, I wholly failed to put the details of yesterday's Blacktown zine fair on this here blog. Anyway, the chances are that if you are an Australian zine enthusiast you're in Adelaide for Format, and wouldn't have been able to come...
So, it was a very small fair but great nonetheless, with a nice relaxed vibe and lots of friendly people to chat with. We sold a whole lot of zines. I'm going to do another zine post on Flying Machine soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
Thanks to… Continue

Hello all! I've written a new Examiner article! This time I dive into the how-to world of how to make a zine. Obviously, we all know that there is no right or wrong way to make a zine, but hey, there are lots of people out there who don't think so!… Continue

This is the first zine I've done in about two years and it's a split zine. It is seperated in two parts, my story first and then Cheo's. I write about my own existence and my conflicts with it. The writing isn't very definitive, everything is open ended and reaches to a conclusion of trying to be more capable and carry out existence.
excerpt: "I want a change to happen within the minute. Why do I lack this patience? Is that immense… Continue

Hello and welcome to yet another month of the year. It's an early spring here in the northwest part of the U.S. and things are plugging away as usual here at Ms Valerie Park, plenty of newness and many exciting things on their way. The spring seems so ripe with projects, tours, and travel, that I doubt I'll get a proper night's sleep until the end of June, but I'd like to think I'm ok with that. Hope all you out there are doing just as fine (but hopefully getting more sleep).… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Just about a year ago to the day (give or take less than a week) the world saw an auction of an artists possessions that garnered a little under one half of a BILLION dollars. Yes BILLION with a "B". And this, as you remember was during the year when everyone had lost their money and banks were being bailed out. This was the largest auction of any private individual ever seen. Name the artist.
