RIOT GRRRL MANIFESTO

BECAUSE us girls crave records and books and fanzines that speak to US that WE feel included in and can understand in our own ways.



BECAUSE we wanna make it easier for girls to see/hear each other's work so that we can share strategies and criticize-applaud each other.



BECAUSE we must take over the means of production in order to create our own moanings.



BECAUSE viewing our work as being connected to our girlfriends-politics-real lives is essential if we are… Continue

Ilse Content is one of my favorite zines. It has been around for six years and someday should get put in book form like Doris, Invincible Summer, or Cometbus- it's just as good as any of those. Until that day comes, we have a new issue out to satisfy our hungers. It just came out this week and I just put it up on the distro, you should check it out:

our last contest question of:



Name the first pulp magazine.

Argosy! It started out as an adventure magazine for boys and girls in 1882. Then shifted from a kids magazine to one for adults, and in 1896 it became the first all fiction magazine printed on pulp paper.



We had no correct answers

It seems y'all were lost in the jungle on this one!

San Francisco & Oakland peeps: zine making workshop results

Here are arm wrestling experiments that mutated into singing and dancing adventures from the Cartoonist Conspiracy San Francisco jams as well as the Rock Paper Scissors Zine Workshops. The activity of making comics is a loner's world, and collaborations don't occur so often. It's a joy to be able to jam with other artists when the opportunity arises much the same way musicians jam.

I took an excellent and highly recommended animation…

zine history blog...kind of

I spent most of my freetime for the past month scanning old zines of mine and posting the pics on my blog. sddzine.blogspot.com its a personal history of my experience writing and reading zines. It was fun digging into my old boxes of mail, re-reading zines I hadn't read in 10 years (time goes by so goddamn fast) and thinking about how easy it is to loose touch with people. Anyway, if your interested check it out.

Check out the pics, I taught our first workshop [non toxic prontoplate printmaking] and we all created works for the zine!…

Issue #1 theme

I was thinking today that I should really have a set theme to keep me focussed on the zine as i have so many other things going on right now in the real world.



So........The theme will be about following your dreams as this last year I've just returned to art college and it's been a struggle to juggle everything (ooo stuggle to juggle.....may use that phrase!) Also I would be good for anyone that is stuck in a mundane job like I am and wants to do something different. So I guess… Continue

bad knitter

I like knitting, but I'm really bad at it.........

........what would make it really fun, would be a stich 'n' bitch group here in Leeds.

So, if there are any keen knitteratti out there, beginners or pro's - get in touch and we should start a weekly meet in a coffee shop or maybe the common place?

All the zines I've ever made...

I know that I've made 121 because I photocopied them all again for the exhibition "Avoiding Myth and Message: Australian Artists and the Literary World", which is currently on at the MCA, Sydney.
If you do go along, do write me a postcard - there is a shiny red postbox and a stack of blank cards for this purpose. Keep the numbers of messages from primary school kids, and teenagers quoting the Mighty Boosh down, write to me!
The exhibition's on til the 12th of July.

More Zines!

...are (finally) being added. And more on their way.

I've been a little confused on how to go about shipping charges and have been doing this $2 flat rate (in the U.S.) that allows people to buy as much as they want and it will just be two bucks of shipping, which seemed great for people who wanted two records, a cd, and a zine, but kinda sucked when someone just wanted one zine. So, now there's no shipping on zines and the price just kind of includes shipping. It's hard to keep the super… Continue

In the Process of a New Zine

I'm pretty ashamed of my lack of writing for the past months. Not so much that I haven't been writing, but everything is just listed out "what i did today" "to do" "This pissed me off...blah blah blah." Trivial stuff. Journal things. One sentence proclamations.



Anyway, a few nights ago I got on the computer and typed out a good concrete nine/ten paragraphs of abstract writing. I finished reading "Please Don't Kill the Freshmen" by Zoe Troppe for the second time. I'm always amazed by… Continue

Musea E-mail Club #470 FAIR Quote

Dear Readers,



The media watchdog, FAIR.org (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting) has the perfect sum up of my media concerns. It encapsulates everything I've been trying to say in a couple of paragraphs. I wanted to reprint it for you and I encourage you to check out their site for more. The media isn't tough on itself, but fair is tough on the media.



From FAIR website (fair.org)

"Independent, aggressive and critical media are essential to an informed democracy. But… Continue
