I have been posting this project on mail art sites, but then I thought that since there will be zines in the exhibition (my own) I might try and make it open to zinemakers too. You can see pictures of my previous exhibition on my blog, which included mail art I received for that project, my zines/books, prints, and also a makestation where people could make their own mail art or zines. I've not done a zine call before, but to follow the… Continue
Okay, so I thought that I'd really concentrate on providing some insight into my own way of thinking on the matter of zine production here. Mainly for the fact, that this little area is too far tucked away into the recesses of the interweb for anyone to take notice. How many posts, blogs, and comments will it take for the whole world to be one giant embarrassment? It's not about the back and forth exchange of ideas from one person to the next. This will primarily be a place for me to spill… Continue

This morning, I got the first feedback for my "friendship day"-mini-zine: One "lovely", one "very nice!" and two swap-bot-hearts, although I didn't send anything other with the zine to get the hearts for. They are really given for the zine and I am dancing with delight here. :-)
This weekend, I will start making my next one.
I collected ideas what to write it about during last week; it is themed "mini-zine of craftiness" and I do have several ideas. So I will pick one and save… Continue

so i've started writing for the midnight madness blog. midnight madness is the program where most of the freaky and fun films at the toronto film festival play. i'm an audience blogger this year and i'm pretty pleased with this post about watching "faster, pussycat, kill! kill!" (one of the movies playing MM this year, bitch slap, is supposed to be a retread of… Continue
YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL #8 + eight and a half
this issue of YOUR PRETTY FACE is mainly about work & worries. or how unhappy it was making me during the month of july. i wrote this zine during the last two weeks of the month, trying to get something finished in time for alternative press fair, and i was having an… Continue
Bending my space case head! Been awhile since i've been here! What can I say? Working on BRM #7"Lucky Bum" tissue! Due out Nov. '09! Did I mention #6 is out! "Dirty Butts Need ButtRagMag#6!"? The need to catch up on some zine reading is coming into my mush! Although-works busy season is about to hit me! Got ideas to work on a zine called 'Cavytime' which will be a comic about guinea pigs. That's gonna be a bit more -less x-rated. I hope to have it… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
I have in my hand a professional film screenplay from Hollywood.
I am on page 62 - how far am I into the movie?
One hour and 2 minutes. Screenplays are written such that each page
is one minute of screen time. That way no matter where you are in
the script the actors, directors, crew, can tell where they are in
the film too. Pretty smart isn't it?
So I see a copy of Mad Magazine because I'm a courier and I'm forever picking up people's mail. The same day I head to the supermarket (I buy more food than I can use) and I see the Mad is costing 5.99 an issue. I'm like crazy. Back in the day this thing was black and white. Now it's a color thing. I'm lost. I guess these things sell. Go figure. Anyway, I'm still working on my brochure on drug use. Not getting very far with it. I'm burned out on the zine fest thing at the local copy shop.… Continue
For anyone waiting on something in the mail from me, I'm sorry it has taken far too long. I've been seriously ill for the last month and haven't been able to do much of anything. On the bright side I've nearly completed the first issue of my latest zine "The Tumultuous Times". And since it was supposed to be done a month ago, I decided everyone on my mailing list gets it for free! This does include people not on this forum, but if you're not on my mailing list and would like a free copy drop me… Continue
I am working at my first zine ever for the Swapbot-"Mini-Zine"-Swap and having a real good time; it is called "Friendship Day" and ready so far, and tomorrow I'm going to copy and bind it.
I am really proud of it: nothing fancy, but I am noob and it's my first one ever, so ...!
Now I am wondering how to bind it. Stapling I thought, but my stapler is a small one, and it does not reach the middle of the zine where the brackets would belong.
So what now? Sewing?
