Grisaille. Next time you look at these Northern European masterpiece paintings, notice the skill with which they painted sculpture to look like 3D!

Crone!

I've decided to make a zine, after donkey's years of doing nothing. A few apazines don't count. I came up with the title Crone, since I'm 48. I'm also working on some little minizines, those 8-pagers. That might be fun! I really need to see some zines though. Not that I want to copy or anything like that, but sometimes it does help to see what's out there.



I found a few zines I have in my collection of SF fanzines. Blimey! Were we really so young! And always depressed and… Continue

This review first appeared on the Feminist Review website

(Sadly, I lost the ring before this review was even published. I just hope the person who found it loves it as much as I did.)





I found another beautiful piece of jewelry on Etsy. I was looking at member profiles on We Make Zines and found a link to a fellow zinester’s Etsy shop. I like seeing cool things other imaginative folks have made, so I… Continue

Queer Zine Archive Project

Do folks know about the Queer Zine Archive Project? I just discovered it. I plan to spend some time (when I have some time) exploring the QZAP website.



Here's the web address: http://www.qzap.org/v5/index.php



Here's some info about the QZAP:



The Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) was first launched in November 2003 in an effort to preserve queer zines and make them available to other queers, researchers, historians, punks, and anyone else who has an interest DIY… Continue

Zine about my own personal queer invisibility

I was supposed to go to the Bash Back gathering in Chicago this weekend, but my friend had to change her plans when she got a gig to photograph a wedding down South. I decided not to go alone.



Some friends of mine have a lovely loft with huge west facing windows and hundreds of books on shelves lining the walls. They said I could spend the weekend here writing. I've been fortunate enough to make myself my own free, four day writing retreat.



So far I've used the time… Continue

Musea Extra: AOL Did Tank - Today

Many years ago I recorded my song, “AOL CAN GO AND TANK TOMORROW.



Seems they have. Or rather Time Warner has dumped AOL as announced today. Here’s some info and a link to my song.



As Variety Magazine writes, ”The merger with AOL was announced with great fanfare in early 2000 and closed a year later. It touched off a round of giant media mergers as other companies feared being left behind in a volatile media landscape. Time Warner changed its name to AOL Time… Continue

Excited to have our seventh year!

Philly Zine Fest is going strong, with a date set for our 2009 fest at the Rotunda in West Philly: Sunday September 20, 2009. Last year we had a great turnout, with distros and zinesters from across the mid Atlantic and Northeast showing up, as well as several workshops and cheap eats. We'll keep everyone posted with more details as they become available!

Dear Zine Libraries...

(or home zine libraries/personal zine libraries), I realize I have a fair amount of quite good zines in multiple copies that I don't distro and I'm a little unsure what to do with. I've donated to all the local zine libraries, so thought I'd throw it out there that, if anybody wanted an envelope of random zines to add to their collection, I would totally send an envelope like that yr way. I would just need a couplefew dollars for shipping. It would probably be 5 or so zines...let me know if… Continue

You Might Be A Junkie If....



You are searching the internet for survival tips on how to live with heroin addiction.
