So, I have a zillion ideas and rather than cram them into one big mish-mash, I am trying to seperate out some of my themes into more specific, focused ideas.
Blithe Ire #1 -- Next to be ready to print; my art/lit mag that I've thus far gotten most of my material for by pestering friends. This one is pretty open-ended.... I have so far a really cheap recipe, some poetry, an article about collecting concert bootlegs, a philosophical rant, some short fiction... I still…
After much careful deliberation, we decided to make some 13th anniversary sweatshirts. It's something that we've talked about and wanted for a long time. Unfortunately, it's very hard to find fair trade, American made sweatshirts. Even most of the companies that generally make their products ethically cannot make "cost effective" sweatshirts in the US. So eventually we decided to go with American Apparel as our best option. To be "down" we are selling them for about half of what American… Continue

and you can find me on Twitter, Facebook, and at www.slumgullion.org...oh and many of the zines depicted in our photo album are available for trade or sale, just send me an email.. or a twitter.. or a facebook...or.....i'm posting really late at night so this is as coherent as it gets. But I am excited to be here, and to spend many hours perusing people's pages. I'm trying to build a zine library, but am utterly poor, so trading and donations of zines, books, comics, etc are eagerly accepted.

Maggie sat in the back seat of a dark grey range rover and wished she wasn't there. It was raining, dream-like mist. The windows smeared and streaked with rain like fast angry tears. The driver was middle aged, mouldy, and smelled of old cigars and unwashed clothing. He did not say a word since he had picked her up, but neither did she. Leaning her head against the window she watched the droplets race from the top of the window to the bottom just like that water-filled game Gran gave to her on… Continue
How do you deal with the uncertainty and possible imminent backlash when writing a perzine and reflecting on people and occurrences as truthful as you can? Like i war against myself because I want to be honest...I need to b and get some of this shit out, but I don't want to sever ties...burn bridges...make anyone an outcast....
writing has become frustration. i've forgotten subjects i've writen about 2 days ago (or more).
this is gonna take longer than i thought. i have short and long term memory loss.
congrats to all who have exposed themselves for i take pleasure in reading the tales. yea, you all remember the 1st time. c.g. Continue
I am a total newbie to the world of Zines!
It is here that I hope I am able to finally burst through my writer's bubble that has encased me for so long.
I have so many ideas floating around in my head, I just lack the discipline to allow them to flow forth.
Wow, first blog.
Unfortunately I've become used to writing and reading incredibly diluted life-stories on myspace profiles; so writing a blog should give me the kick up the backside I truely deserve.
So let's not start with the basics.
- I was born on Christmas day, 1993, during the Queens speech. My mother still managed to eat two chrismas dinners that day.
- I have a passion for history, art, music and history of art and music. Currently I have a developing fixation on… Continue

My name is Ramsey and I make a zine called list filled with illustrations! If you like my zine, it's a good chance you like it because of the drawings, so I figured it was relevant to post about my illustration sale on here.
My cat, Stella, became very ill over the holiday and the only way to save her was for her to get surgery. Obviously, surgery of any kind, even for an animal, is very expensive. Since she was a young cat,… Continue
Not really sure if anyone bothers to read my blog posts on here, but I figured that since I made a coupon for my past customers to use I might as well spread it around for anyone else who wanted to buy up some zines with a 20% discount. Through 1.20.09, you will receive 20% off the total of your zine order if you enter the code "holiday0809" when you check out. Trust me, it works! It's great! And I've got a lot of great new stuff on the site right now, so stop on by and check it… Continue
