It’s always tough to write about zines without falling into self-referential piffle – we are afterall unsubbed and unvalidated – but events such as this genuinely does remind me why I bother, sporadically, to produce material. There were a number of events, including a gig featuring the wonderful Bobby McGees and a knees up at the Cowley Club, around the festival but I just managed to leg it to the London Bridge train down from London for the main Saturday sale the fest was centred… Continue

Nearing the end of February already. I have accomplished nothing.
The second issue of Hazel Harper has not yet been born. Maybe soon... maybe not.
It's the brain fog, you see. It seeps in, virtually unnoticed, making thoughts impossible to pull into focus. It is brought on by life. A mind numbing daily life of things that must be done. Wake up, feed the kids, shuffle them off to school, do what's necessary to keep the abode livable, talk to the necessary people, try to… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
This English fair began in 1133, and it was such fun, and such a big hit that they kept it going each year for, oh, say, 722 years! Name it.
Bartholomew Fair, held in West Smithfield, London.

I travelled from London to Brighton on Saturday, picking some friends up on the way, to go to my first ever zine related event.
Hannover Community Centre had a great feel to it, very village hall-like.
The main room downstairs was packed! We placed our mix CD in the box and went round all the different stalls. It was amazing to see the wide variety of zines available, right from DIY through to professional books.
The 2… Continue

I was happily working on my second zine. I was reading and thinking maybe I should stick with art, since art is what I know about, so I ripped out part of the guts of my second zine. I made the decision to just do art, then some things happened, and now here it is a few weeks later, my life is over flowing with all kinds of things and there sits my second zine looking at me accusingly.
I'm not sure if I will publish the first or second one,… Continue

Februrary is pretty epic. This month bring a slew of newness, especially as far as zines are concerned. With subjects ranging from radical parenting to the non-traditional use of classical instruments, I'm always happy to carry more zines that don't have the usual themes. As much as I love a good perzine about riding a bike to get donuts with one's friends, I like ones about revolutionary locksmiths and lifelong non-religious virginity much better. We restocked a ton of stuff, too, and there's… Continue

Last night I finally put the the finishing touches to my first ever zine.
Phoenixii. Issue 1
It is a collection of songs/lyrics/poems/stories/experiences and artwork.
I really wanted to make my first zine and I am happy I have managed to complete it. Now comes the printing. I was going to attempt to covertyl copy it at work but do not think this is going to be practical as the areas are too open and people will see what I am… Continue

So, CHALLENGE ME! I just remembered an activity we did a couple of times in school before... we had to pick a song or someone had to pick a song for us, and then we try to make a story out of it.
SO yeah, challenge me to make a story out of ANY song at all. if you could link me to the lyrics that would be great (esp. if it is an old song or a not-so popular song). If you choose to make it extra challenging, choose a genre and/or set a deadline!
