Well, it was fail but now it is done!
I had finished Pillow Talk, but then loads of crappy things happened to me and I ripped it all up and couldn't bear to think about it until a couple of weeks ago. I started again though and got it finished and now it's all ready to go.
It turned out pretty well and I am happy with it, and it will definitely become a regular thing again. I had got really scared of making zines, writing things down made them so real, and I was afraid they… Continue

Starting another thing online, I guess. I tend to spread myself thinly over the internet.
Great idea for Vegemite, but it's a shitty approach to gaining exposure.
Here are some websites I'm not quite happy with:
Started it in 2008 as a portfolio site. Has some of my best work on it, but there are heaps that need to be added to it.…

I recently found a new web host, Weebly.com. Hate the name, but so far there's nothing I don't like about the service. The interface is ridiculously easy to use and it has a lot of nifty features that I haven't seen with other hosts. So I'll slowly be transitioning all my online junk into one single Apocalypse Girl HQ.
Come by and check it out- Apocalypsegrrl.com

Portland's Eberhadt Press is really great; they off-set print everything themselves, use all reused/recycled paper, and keep it real cheap. We're pretty happy to be carrying some of our favorites from them...Criminal: Writings of Isabelle Eberhardt

Been reading a lot of really good zines lately. Been tempted to start reviewing them, but then I wonder - do we really need another opinionated voice, tainted by personal taste; does anyone other than the zinester herself (or himself) care what I think about a zine?
Anyway, it's been refreshing and cathartic to read people's personal experiences, presented in a somewhat careful and artistic format, especially when they to some extent mirror my own sentiment. A copy of… Continue

I have been searching high and low and have not been able to locate any zine fairs or zine communities within the state of Arizona. This brings me much sadness and frustration! So I have decided to take it upon myself and do some research regarding planning/organizing a zine fest/fair in the Phoeinix (Arizona) area. If anyone out there can offer advice, tips, words of wisdom on how to get this idea off the ground I am all ears.Or if you know of such events or communities within the State of… Continue

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
