This e-mail is about my guitar playing. I think I've developed an original style in this area and I wanted to tell you about it.
Most singer/songwriters do one of two methods of playing the guitar. They either strum chords while singing, or finger pick a certain pattern while they sing.
My history is that of a lead electric guitar player in a number of combos from the 60's on. So I love that classic rock and roll sound with that passionate mix of rhythm… Continue

I haven't put out an issue myself in nearly seven years, and that's just too long! Just about all my "so called" modern equipment is useless to me now, and I have to start all over. The only thing that still works is my copier I bought in 1999. I'm sure eventually I'll get my printers back up (or replace them), but for now I'll just work with what I have. To put out a new issue old school might be what I need at this point.
I got to the point of sending out thousands of copies of my… Continue

So, while the options are limited on what you can do with a blogger page, we did some layout work to try to make the distro easier to read/use, a little prettier... Any thoughts? Anything you'd like to see?
I 've been wondering if people would like it better if the side links were separated by what type of thing they are (zine, handmade book, cd, tape, record), or if that would just get jumbled and confusing.
Would love to hear what people think. Thanks! -MVP/JJ...… Continue

if you are organizing events, you should alot time to reply with care to requests and queries. If several people are having the same problem and don't receive responses and also need information...maybe you should organize somehting simpler that allows you time to be courteous enough to not leave people hanging on multiple occassions.

I've finished my assingment for the Open University course I'm doing. Deadline was today, so of course, I was just really getting into it today! But it's done, tradition as the justification for religious innovation in English Christianity, discuss with 2 or 3 examples. Phew!I actually really enjoyed writing it.
Anywa, now that it's finally done, I can get on with Estrones. And maybe Crone as well.

I am trying to raise some funds to help a local family pay for their grandson's funeral. Actually, many people in my local community are doing various fundraisers for this family. I will be donating a percentage of Sweet Candy orders this weekend, it is the best way I know I can help financially.
This little boy was being raised by his grandparents and was only 6 years old. He just graduated from Kindergarten. He suffered permanent injuries from a car accident that he was in last… Continue

Hey hey readers, Good news from KERA-FM our local public radio station. They have announced that they will be starting a second radio station dedicated to music. See here for the details:
I wrote them the following:
This sounds exciting for both musicians and music lovers. I look forward to hearing it.
I also would like to suggest somethings that I hope programmers will consider.
1. Ask for advice from everyone before… Continue

Hullo, We Make Zines.
In the mid 90s a few pals and I ran a zine from where we lived in the Scottish Borders, named Sun Zoom Spark
(after a Captain Beefheart song). We ended up getting it distributed throughout the uk. It was full of absurdist humour, trashy artwork and photography, bizarre stories, stuff about female sexuality + interviews with old time punkers like The Ramones & Jonathan Richman, the up 'n' coming Brit… Continue

My monthly zine, Blah Blah Blah, is about myself -- my adventures, my struggles, my day to day life. It is my memoir in real time.
Subscribing to my zine gives you the unique experience of receiving a zine in the mail every month.
Every zine is just eight pages and is 1/4 size.
If you make a zine regularly and sell subscriptions I would love to trade subscriptions.
I am also open to trading my back issues with people… Continue
