A Piece of Wistful Poetry

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
Appreciated eventually.

Zinester Quiz for Art Smarts (12.21.09)

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.

I had no… Continue

Dungeons & Dragons Continues

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.

Two Last Minute Gifts


Here are two small gifts for you. The first is the new issue of Musea,

the second is the Musea Reading Fund, half off of any classic anything!

The new issue of Musea, "Chess Sets" is now up on the Musea website

at musea.us. For Christmas each year, I've tried to write a short story

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

loved to draw. The story starts out:

Once while 8 year old Barty was working on a drawing… Continue

It's Christmas-time in the city...

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

2009 is over?

Looking back at my first blog post, I can't believe 2009 is done. A better year than 2008, yes, but 2009 did nothing for me. Or I did nothing for it. 2010..... the more productive year?

December Distro Update!

Well, as weird as it seems, this is the year anniversary of the Ms Valerie Park Distro! Funny to think that something I started in my pajamas one cold winter morning from a few of my friends' things in a box is now something I "do". Kind of didn't see that coming.

In the last month, it's been wonderfully bitter cold in Olympia and I've been taking it pretty slow. Here at ye ol distro, I lowered some prices on things and got in a bunch of good new stuff. Also, (I know this is dorky, but),… Continue

punks is hippies - the blog!

this website is awesome! it's 'sort of' a zine archive, mostly into punk zines.

they have lots of old zines, back from the 90s and 80s, but they also have some "contemporary" (aka 2000s) zines.

though i'm not that much into punk, it's amazing the work these guys are doing in scanning old zines and making them available online for… Continue

Sweet Candy Distro - Winter 09

Happy Winter Sweet Candy friends!

It's been awhile since I have sent out distro updates. Did you think I disappeared? No way! My son was born in August so I've been quite busy with a baby, homeschooling my daughters, as well as rockin' the work-at-home mama status. I decided to re-organize the distro and start fresh. Perfect timing with the New Year coming up fast.

No major changes, just asking for extra patience when you send me your zine for review. My goal is to get… Continue

Zine Trades

This is my favourite way to distribute copies of my zine, and get copies of other peoples'. Since I signed up here in the summer, it's been going pretty well, but lately, I've noticed that I'm sending a lot of stuff out and not getting much back. Maybe it's just that it's getting cold out and no-one wants to leave their house.

I just sent out a few emails asking some people if they've received my zines, because I know that's how I used to keep track of trades - by sending back… Continue
