Lead-in to a planned christmas zine


November's threefold ceremonies of death have declared our ritual goodbyes to summer. Winter is arriving and soon it will be time to celebrate it. Town is getting busier at night - and bloody scary. Each small local gig feels snug and warm, a cave of drink and music in which, in little clusters of friendly strangers, we can shut out the cold black sky. Some of us will play guitar and share some songs. Others will drink, in honour of king winter.

On the no.12 bus, I see… Continue

Working on a project...Need your help!

Thanks to everyone who contributed to my zine documentary so far! The responses have been fabulous, and I can't wait to put together the first issue to send out to everyone. Here's the deal.

My plan is to do a series of issues over the next year and once I have a good number of issues, to bind them somehow as a… Continue

"In search of... Luke Sinclair" from "Going Postal!" #2

"In search of… Luke Sinclair" from "Going Postal!" #2

I always see advertisements for zine distros in review zines, but I´ve never contacted any of them to see if they would be interested in carrying one of my zines. I prefer to know my readers one-on-one. That is, if somebody sees a review of my little publication they have to grab a pen & a sheet of paper, then sit down & write to me personally. I like that. I´m not all that interested in putting massive quantities… Continue

Zine Documentary at RVA Zine Fest

I'll be working on a documentary about zines during the RVA Zine Fest, which I help organize. I'll have a table downstairs Friday and Saturday, so come see me. The first incarnation of this documentary will be a zine itself, so I'll have fun zine-making stuff at my table for you to play with. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend!
