Alex Wrekk’s Eastern North America Mini tour thing…
Hello! Greeting from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I have been here for a week for the Anchor Archive’s Zine Residency Program (http://www.robertsstreet.org). That means I get to live in a shed in their backyard and make zines for two weeks. This also means I should have the zine I have been working on for the past 5 years done and ready for all the events coming up! Anyway, here’s my mini… Continue

I have been busy working / writing on a new zine since February. The content has been coming along nicely & I think I have enough stuff written up now, to put the issue out. So as soon as I have enough 'free time' I will be typing up & laying out the zine. This issue is going to be Rebel In Magenta #17 and its going to have a lot to do with turning 30 and what that did to me (my thoughts, changes in life, thinking back. etc). I'm really excited about this issue.
I also… Continue

i organize every monstress around a central monstrous theme and this time, i'm torn between two, "witchiness" and "ape attack!" i already have a bunch of reviews of movies where the horror is built around old women (bette davis' entire late career) but i'm having trouble with writing the other stuff. every issue also has chapters of a pulp fiction story in it and for "witchiness" i'd like to write something kind of agatha christie or dorothy sayers for the fiction. but writing in that style… Continue

I love Tegan and Sara. I took a year off between school and university. Between August ‘07 - September ‘08 I saw Tegan and Sara play 27.5 times in 8/11 countries (depending on how you count).
I kept a diary for 22 of those shows.
This is the padded out version of that diary, complete with lovely pictures and other random things I… Continue

...It's been a long time. I've recently learned how to silkscreen, so I'm going to do the covers myself. Maybe I'll make 50 of them and kind of approach it differently than with Lickety Split (no judgment there- that magic deserves to be spread around!).
What I mean is, I'm rethinking my relationship to the format. I think I will:
- Not plan the zine
- Produce all the content myself
- Use screenprinting and photocopy printing methods
- Maybe try to get them in out… Continue
One of the many low-key creative things that happen at the Star & Shadow cinema is taking place on Saturday, from 10.30am onwards for 2 hours or so. If you are free, please come and join in - all are welcome, it's free and there's no need to be an expert!
At 10.30 we will share a wee breakfast & coffee in the office (bring anything you want!), flick through some trashy paperbacks - a western, a crime thriller, a mills'n'boon lovestory etc.. - and decide… Continue
I've always wanted to take our Dallas daily and see how much of it is hard news. Thankfully someone else has done it for me. Clay Shirky reports on his findings for his hometown paper. Then UTNE does the same experiment. They include photos of the results. Check them out and let me know what you think.
