Well, I just got back from the 2009 Portland Zine Symposium, and I wanted to give you all some praise. This was the first year I've volunteered for the event, and I was very impressed with the cooperative spirit and overall positive vibe of this year's event. I also wanted to thank everyone who donated a zine to the Olympia Library's collection- you know who you are, and I thank you a hundred million times over. See y'all next year...

I posted this on my blog, but wanted to post it here too. Thanks to all of you for "getting it".
I am tired and need to wind down for tonight, but I wanted to post this while it was fresh in my head.
Driving to Kinkos tonight at 11:30 pm I thought what is it with me that makes me use my precious vacation time to stay home and make a zine? What is it that makes me stay in my house for 48 hours and work by myself on some folded pieces of paper?
I don't know… Continue

"Against and Among Institutions: Mail Art as a Subversive Medium" by John Held, Jr.
I know it’s wrong…but I’ve been waiting for some major American art institution to come along and ask me to assist in the production of their major exhibition of Mail Art. It’s not happening. I know that things like this don’t happen without effort on one’s own part, but it’s long overdue…and I keep waiting. For how much longer, I don’t know.
Some would argue that an exhibition on Mail Art,… Continue

Tears in my Schooner: a guide on depressive aural indulgence is my first zine. It is a zine about depression, dealing with your emotions and using music to indulge. It's a A5 zine that comes with a Audio CD. More than willing to trade, or send you a copy for postage and construction costs.
