if i pissed you off.....

Hi Everyone,



I am just gonna come out with it: I have not been in a good mental place and have struggled with drug addiction for a long time now. One of the problems I had was honoring orders and trades. I just want to make this public blog post so you know I have every intention of going through all my files and sending every single person the zine I promised, even if it was a year ago.



Please know I am not trying to cheat you or be a lazy bitch. I'm just having some… Continue

Only Three?

Hmm, I could have sworn that I'd written more entries on here than that!

Ah well.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am back, but I need some ass-kicking to get back into making zines! I want to, but some days I can't even motivate myself to get up and go shower.

So, any tips and tricks for getting back in the game?

My very first Zine Fair.

I have now been delging into the new world of zine-making for a good couple of months now, but my very first Zine Fair was the Wollongong City Gallery Zine Fair, held last weekend in the Grand Legal Ballroom..er, room of Wollongong Art Gallery.



It is very possible that the room that the Zine Fair was held in is not called The Grand Legal Ballroom room...but it should be. It has very nice polished wooden floors, suitable for some good ol' pointed toes, and then strangely it has some… Continue

Call out - GLBTIQQ zine, stories of growing up queer in Australia.

Call out - GLBTIQQ zine, stories of growing up queer in Australia.



Based on the fact that there is such a small number of aussie queer zines (please email me if you write one on the chance I've missed it), I'm keeping this fairly broad. Basically, I'd like to put together an Australian colaborative queer zine (only Australian-based in content) and I would like personal articles and essays and possibly to a lesser extent, art. I am willing to consider a broad spectrum of things… Continue

Help!

Hello friends,

We’re hoping you might be able to help. To keep the online store open, it costs us far more than the small amounts we get from selling zines. We want to keep growing the zine distro and expanding the possbilities for the zinemakers we stock. To do this, we currently rely on people ordering things online, at zine fairs, and also the money we get from sales of Susy Pow’s zines - Tea & Biscuits, Don’t Panic, Everything Was Beautiful & Nothing Hurt, Comparisons Between… Continue

Neverending Creation Project

If you’ve been toiling around my traps recently you may have been cajoled and accosted by me to do whatever-the-fuck-you-want to one page in a little zine-like scrapbook I’ve been creating and letting you create. The first book is nearly full. It’s full of things by (off the top of my head):



Simon Unwin (of the band, Intentions)

Jodie Brabin (of the Dep’t of Ageing)

Catman (of the zine, Krumpets, and the music Catman)

Dan Bolton (of that old band Faux Hawks)
