So I opened a PO box a few weeks ago and was so glad i did... and started using it as my mailing address only to get emails a few days ago saying that everything they have been mailing me was being returned because it was the "WRONG ADDRESS".

but anyways, it's all sorted out now (or so they say) so it should work without having everything returned. I sorry for the inconvenience and delay.… Continue

I can't help but wonder what place socialism has in today's society, if any. Socialism is not definitive, but people have tried to pigeonhole it over the years. Who even cares about this shit anymore? I personally don't think it's good or bad; whenever I think about it I just wonder if it exists...

I won't lie, I'm still buzzing from the single launch. Months of sincere effort has now produced something to be proud of. Although, when I say "effort", I mean I just rocked up when I was supposed to when I was supposed to. DJ NU put in the real hard yards, and I'm so grateful to have been a part of it.… Continue

This op-ed may find a way to a zine and/or newspaper (as you can tell by reading it, it's sort of written in layman's terms compared to how D&D fans might describe the situation) but until then, you can read it here:
IS DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS DYING?

When most people hear the term “Dungeons and Dragons,” they immediately picture something to do with either computers or the internet, or if they’re really intellectual, a card or board game. However, Dungeons… Continue

Hah. Spot the Ning noob. Only just found this entire section for blog posts. Woopsie.
Spose I should write a little bit in here. Been working on mélange #2. Almost 2/3 of the way through - hoping to have it finished in the next couple of months. Yeah, I know that's slack, but I like to take my time with zine projects - put some thought into them. Don't know if that comes across, particularly when the iterations of editing result in something minimal. But I suppose art is like a… Continue

Yes, that is correct. The Silk City Series
is now a book, being published by Knickerbocker Circus Publishing, a small press out of Astoria, NY.
It's a collection of stories about the everyday lives of working-class people in the city of Paterson, New Jersey. The book has already garnered praise from publications such as Maximum Rock n Roll Magazine, who said "...the presentation is very beautiful and put together with an eye for the antique, forgotten, miserable and… Continue

Notes from a Hospital Bed in France
by Lisa B. Falour
By 1975, when I was a first-year art student (majoring in graphic design & illustration) at Kent State University in Ohio, U.S.A., I already had eclectic tastes with regard to art, music and literature. I was restless and very unsure of myself, but of one thing I was certain: there weren´t any magazines around to really interest and engage me. Lonely, nerdy, odd, and fond of correspondence, I became a “mail artist”… Continue

our last contest question of:
This giant hit song was the first real smash to use the pitch correction software. Name it. Good Luck!
Cher's 1998 mega hit "Believe". It sold over 10 million, hit number one on the charts and made her the oldest female artist at 52 to reach #1.
She didn't need the pitch correction or auto tune, but when the bonehead record execs wanted her to dump the cool effect, she refused. Sadly… Continue
