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

I braved the arctic wind to make copies of Scatter Gram 5 today! They're all ready to go. I'm so happy I've been able to keep this zine going and put it out on a regular basis. I'll probably just do one more issue after this, though, because it's all about being in library school and I'm set to graduate in June.

LOOSE CONFEDERATION of ADVOCATES
There is a growing LOOSE CONFEDERATION of people in the art and media revolution. There are many artists, advocates, and advocacy groups, that cover the problems of a specific type of art. And some, like myself see the problem as endemic of all arts and media.
Some of these leaders know of the other leaders, some of us have even worked with each other to bring about changes. But whether by ourselves, or within our specific interests, or as… Continue

Blessed be the Sunlight
Oh, here it comes again
Slicing through the rain and clouds
And upon my windowframe.
It may oh maybe
Not so beautiful
Californians cannot see
But a ray of sunshine is a ray of hope

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
The actor in the space opera began saying his part:
"Engines on! Countdown begins! 10,9,8,... LINE!"
But seriously though, what FILM invented the countdown?
Countdown was first used by the 1929 German science fiction movie "Die Frau im Mond" by Fritz Lang to increase the drama of the launch sequence of the story's lunar rocket, says wikipedia.

So far I have an interview, tons of products for possible review, an Opinon Editorial piece that will be reprinted in the zine (I plan on sending it to Adbusters and Renaissance in the meantime), another op-ed that is still in outline form, and A LOT OF GAMING EXPERIENCE with this new group I've been playing with in Portland. I also plan on putting a short (if comical) Tunnels & Trolls solo adventure at the end. Keeping my fingers crossed that this will work out.

that fits the season. This year it's the story of Barty, who as a child

This is a holiday ornament I received as a gift via the P.O. Box this morning. Comprised of red and green beads. A silver and red pipe cleaner. Wire. And a .32 shell casing.
The envelope bore neither note nor return address. Moreover, it was marked "Hand Cancel! Fragile", so there wasn't even a postmark. But perhaps the most frustrating (yet tantalizing) part in figuring out who sent it was narrowing the perhaps too-extensive list of… Continue
