Today I put up my new zine review blog, Too Many Cookies
. A funny name, one would say, and it is, because as I was trying to think of a name, I was simultaneously thinking about how I had just eaten way
too many blueberry brown sugar cookies in the previous five minutes. This happens a lot.
After telling Amber
I wanted to do zine reviews, she said,… Continue

I've said plenty over the years. It's time to hear from you.
By doing nothing you, reader, support the status quo. You encourage the bad radio and the generic rock on it, you encourage more formula TV and sequel films, you block any change in theater, dance, or the visual arts, you prevent fair reviews for all artists, and keep at bay just about any thing progressive in the arts. You support the worst of corporate art and oppose the best of the independent artists in every kind of… Continue

– a yankee newsprint old school zine in a new world that had a great word up with Mike Doskocil about Drunks With Guns, has heaps of reviews for bands I’ll probably never hear cos I’m flat broke but has plenty of spirit, guts and leaves black ink on yr fingers. What more could you need in this new world of blogs and glossy personal zines and shite. I got mine from Big Star here in Adelaide which surprised the fuck out of me but then the world is getting’ smaller.… Continue

This project has been created as a means of promoting domestic violence/abuse awareness. The project also hopes to inspire people to tell their struggles regarding domestic violence and/or abuse and hopefully aid in the healing process.
Whether one is a victim of domestic violence or abuse, an abuser who has inflicted pain and violence on others, or some other person whose life has been affected by the act of domestic violence or abuse...the abuse could even have been… Continue

Hello hello! I am currently working on a zine: Saling-pusa and aside from being a perzine, it focuses mostly on self-discovery and self-definition. And for this first issue, i am looking for articles/pieces that talks about how you just knew you're gay. It can be as obvious as starting to be attracted to someone of the same sex or something like playing house with another girl, being forced to play the guy role and realizing you liked it... it can be anything really. i just really want to… Continue

When I was 10 to 15 years old, I published a mimeographed family paper, sending out 100 copies. I wonder who still uses the mimeograph? I still have the machine and some of the supplies.

In an attempt to be more active in the whole zine scene/ culture, I decided to do random trades with ANYONE.
If you're interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org :) MOst if not all the zines I'll receive from these trades will be made examples and may even be featured in future PLunge fundraising events--figured that since most of us are tight on postage dollars, if I'm going to ass (or even beg) people to send zines our way, it's only decent to send something back . :)

There are the classics like J.Ds, Anonymous Boy, I ♥ Amy Carter, and Susan Mini Mag. There are more recent zines like the 2008 RMO Tour zine from our friends in the Rude Mechanical Orchestra,… Continue

So, I've been off for work for the past few days, and have kinda re-immersed myself in zine culture, reading zines and comics, listening to zine podcasts, finishing a long overdue issue of my own and compiling stuff for a best of. I went through a box and found some ooooold ass stickers from back in the day and stuck 'em to my laptop. I made a list of people I'd like to swap with and started writing letters and mailing zines.
Then on the 4th day of non-stop zine-o-rama, I remembered… Continue

War with the Cartoon Characters
We as a people had had enough!
"Let's try as a jury and also a judge
all the cartoon 2D bunch;
rope them and their shenanigans,"
shouted the crowd, every one.
"Time to be serious when things are dark,
time to go to work and pull a plow,
time to clean up after those who draw."
The characters in concert said, "Phooey to that!"
and sent raspberries to all in earshot
and drew up multiple musical… Continue

paper trail distro is open again now that the holidays are over, but the break i took made me realize that the distro isn't where i want to put my energy anymore. i knew when i started out seven years ago that the distro had an expiration date--i couldn't keep running it forever. & i think the time has come to shut it down. it's been a while since i really enjoyed the process of running a zine distro, even though i had many good years of reading great zines, meeting interesting people,… Continue

I can tell that somewhere deep inside me I've already begun "Good Night, Cephalopod." I've already got the text and have been kind of stuck on the drawings--and distracted by life. But I'm getting that drawing feeling. This will be my second zine done entirely in colored pencil.

Three zines from my "Junk Drawer" series will be part of an exhibition of artist made books at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. There will be 13 other artists and writers featured, and from what I've seen, most seem to be pretty accomplished. And then there's me, with little photocopied, stapled zines. Nothing fancy, but somehow they're in an art exhibit. Well, I'm just glad that zines are being recognized along with other "art books," as they call them.
The show takes place… Continue

i'm busy working on cocoa/puss issue #4. maybe busy isn't the right word because i love my zine and it isn't exactly "work" to put it out. it's actually the highlight of my crazy fucked up life. i love the responses and the copying and the glue everywhere. i love stickers on enevelopes and trades and all of it. i'm just in the brainstorming phase right now. trying not to force the writing out. read a little bukowski and he said something about if you have to sit and force the words out,you… Continue
