Newsletter for February!

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

Phoenixii Zine - Issue One

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…

Challenge me: (yes i do hope for replies/comments lol)

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!

Edit: i…

Zine Uni Dream!!

So, one morning a few months ago (I am just getting around to posting this), I had a dream. I wrote down a very short blurb about it that morning.



"We were all majoring in Zines at a university. It was like theatre classes, only for everything to do with zines. There were so many people I knew, because my mind used all the faces from profile photos on We Make Zines to fill in the faces of my fellow dream classmates."



Awesome,…

Things You Say distro - new zines!

We have some awesome new zines that I want to tell everyone about!

  • A Million Birthdays #8 and A Million Birthdays #10: The writing in these zines is incredible, and possibly the best I've ever seen. K's stories just grab you, and I wanted to know more about the people she writes about. I'm getting A Million Birthdays #9 in very soon and I can't wait to add it to the catalog.
  • Basic Paper Airplane #2 and #3: Joshua's zines seem very old school, and I like that.…

Buzzzzzz

We just bought a percolator, and three cups of coffee later I'm certainly awake, but still don't have time to do the million things for the take care site that need doing. At last count there were about 20 items whose descriptions need to be added (only a few of which are actually written), about half of which are for items that are entirely new and not on the site yet. Insane! But never fear, when Tim gets home from work this afternoon we're going to start work on it, so by mid next week,… Continue

Two new zines for fifty cents each!

I've been easing myself into some bigger zine projects, but I've just finished two small ones that are super cheap!




First is Pocket Guide. It's my self-care manifesto, kind of a really long New Year's resolution in zine form.…

Jesus Christ Superzine & Etsy

Two things.

1. Jesus Christ Superzine #1 has released its second (revised) edition. Now, I know it's not common for zinesters to do (or at least announce) this, but Ariel isn't the most common of zinesters. Don't worry, it hasn't become a slick, glossy thing, just edited, added to, and a touch easier to read. Description: The second edition of Ariel Birks'… Continue

Zinefreak42 Blathers on about Zines & the way he does 'em

are as many answers to that as there are people reading this) But I figured…

More like me…?

Now I have lead a relatively sheltered Zine existence…

And by that I mean I have been making things that fall under the wide world of Zine goodness for a long while… I just haven't been involved in the community so to speak.



As of late I have been very drawn into the fold as it were.

I have found that the more Zinesters I encounter the more friendly responses and support I get.

So I naturally seemed to gravitate towards this community.

I believe the internal… Continue
