Mishap #26 is Out and Left Behind after the digital rapture

Hi,

Hope all is as well as can be. I finished Mishap #26 and had it copied up a couple weeks ago. It is 24 pages, half book reviews. There are bumper sticker reviews, a story about how punk teachers should learn from the hippie teachers of the seventies and eighties, and a look at two crimes--one involving a bomb and the other a backhoe. Trade is best, $1+stamp. PO Box 5841 Eugene OR 97405, usa



I turned 35 last month and I've been doing zines since 1992 turned into 1993. Before… Continue

GreenLight #5: A DIY Guide to Cleveland

Just finished the newest GreenLight, which is a DIY Guide to Cleveland. GL is usually a sustainability zine, but we felt like we needed a guide to everyone's favorite Cleveland spots. If you're living in the Cleveland area or are visiting soon... or just want to know more about some Cleveland gems, this is for you! I'm up for trading or you can order it at loralovesohio.etsy.com.

We also just launched a new website, which is pretty sweet! Check that out at greenlightzine.org!

Thank you Eli Roth! xo





"Ax Wound is my favorite critical horror magazine. The articles are intelligent, funny, insightful, and incredibly entertaining. These girls know their gore, and they make you want to re-watch all your favorite films with a whole new perspective. I love it and highly recommend it to any horror fan." -Eli Roth

Readers,



Have you had a chance to look at the latest print issue of Musea (#167 Mar.'09)? It's the big best-100-new-music-of-the-entire-world, music list issue.

Candy Box is ready!

I am going to the copy shop soon after writing this post to make copies of Candy Box, my new zine in which I rate twelve varieties of candy (mostly chocolate) that my friend Carolyn sent from the UK. I am planning on pink covers, which is exciting to me. I will post photos soon.



This zine will be of most interest to folks who love candy and/or those who live in the UK or will visit there. I am asking 75 cents for it, but I would REALLY like to trade for it.



This one's… Continue

Woot !blog post?

I would describe myself as pretty boring, and lately I have been trying to spend as little time on the internet as possible. Right now, I am supposed to be starting a Claes Oldenburg style artist manifesto based on a picture I took (Trust me, as interesting as it sounds its so far from it....); however while going to retrieve said image from my e-mail, I noticed i had a message from this… Continue

odd like a 2 dollar bill

I get such a kick out of it when people send me $2 bills for ordering Zine World. I just can't bring myself to spend them on banalities like postage. I've traded out a couple for $1 bills (from my non-zine funds). I usually keep one in my wallet, just for emergency cash. (And it has to be a really tight emergency before I will spend it.) I've put one or two into my son's 'special money' piggy bank. Occasionally I'll use one for ordering another zine. Feels right to spend it that way.
