The Infinite ZINE!!

Whooooo hooooo!!! I can cross it off of my never-ending 'LIFE GOALS' list: I have published my first real zine. Ya - i've done lots of those dinky ones to fill the boring summer days: reporting on the town's birthdays, giving reviews of the latest movie-release...nothing that packs any zest - nothing of this caliber. The FIRST INFINITE ZINE was great - it was amazing - it was inspiring - it was even a little smudged from the Xerox… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,

our last contest question of:



Name the 1971 TV series that was the first reality show.



IS

The PBS Series, "An American Family" which ran during Jan-March 1973

I went to a party celebrating the show at the Stoneleigh Hotel here in Dallas. I wrote a short story on the event. A couple of things stand out. Lance, the celebrated gay son was the hit of the party, and in the madness he mentioned that he liked my spanish style… Continue

Check out my new zines

Hey folks! I've been a busy zinester over the last year, and I've been a slacker to post them up on the net. Here's what they are and their descriptions:



10 Dirty Little Secrets - This was my 24 hour zine for 2007. Inside are 10 of my own personal dirty secrets. It's fairly image heavy and a quick read, but I've gotten really good feedback on it. It's a 24 page quarter size, and $1 or trade of course!



Pandora's Box #18 - This is the latest issue of my perzine. Inside I… Continue

Space

I am so sick of not having a separate workspace for my projects. Between the zines, the art stuff, and the fiber related stuff, my house is a mess. Every time I want to have an actual meal everything has to be moved from the table then put back when we're done eating. It sucks! Every house we've lived in has had an extra room that I could turn into a studio/office. Until this place. It's the nicest and the biggest of the places we've lived, but there are no extra rooms for me to claim as work… Continue

goings on

Work on the Aussie queer zine goes well - I've already got a few people on board who I know will create something awesome for it - if you're interested: runwaykite(at)gmail(dot)com



It's funny when you're focused on something, you are clued into similar happenings on. I read MCV the other day, which I never really read, and saw a call-out for an aussie queer anthology called 'banQuet'. Aside from the unfortunate name, it could be promising. It's a bit different to what I'm looking to… Continue

Wollongong Zine Fair haul

Well, it was a great zine fair to start with... I got to run a zine workshop and be on a panel with some other zine makers. Unfortunately, I was stuck behind my table for most of the day and only got the briefest window to go and see what was about.

My favourite thing that I picked up was a one-off zine by Prado Marin. I really like getting the only copy of something, and this one is very nice. It's a sewn-together collection of bits of magazines, collage, graph paper, tracing paper, etc.… Continue

Me and my Zine

Hi everyone, I very lazily make a zine called, 'F/8 and be there'

It's a small collection of things, moments and engagements that make me take a second look and think, I love to show what I've seen to other people. For me that's what taking photos is about.

writers/interviewers/organizers wanted

We still need just a few folks that can lend their wit and writ to interview a handful of artists for our rad/ical arts magazine. We love folks that can ask probing, pointed questions with a critical eye. Are you that somebody? (thanks aaliyah)
