I'm listening to Billie*
With prints at my side
I'm thinking of printing
And knowing I've tried...
And that it's paid off!
My prints are all done
Now all that remains
Is stapling and fun!

'Toot toot'!! went the train to Victoria as it pulled into the platform, whoa!!! My step… Continue

I should be washing my hair in preparation for work day #543659426 tomorrow but I'm still at my computer, two hours after telling myself I should switch the damn thing off. Copies of Koocachoo 4 went out last weekend and I await some sort of response from distros. It's been a while since I sent out an issue that I was pleased with and it seems that a big chunk of distros have fallen off the face of the internetal earth. Where did they go? If I had enough money and time to re-start Shoebox I… Continue

Yesterday I started a group on We Make Zines called Lets Trade Zines! I was hoping to be able to get all the zinemakers together who want to trade zines and make it easier for them to trade. Sometimes I contact people and I am a little worried that they won't want to trade with me. This group means people will post up a comment and that will act as a surety that they want to trade!!! I've already had one request for my zines from the Lets Trade Zines so I hope many more will come.

First issue of a zine with heavy nods to goth culture, body image, and surviving sexual abuse. A pretty mixed bag with tons of interviews and loads of contributors, visually and otherwise. On one hand, there’s a fascinating interview with a young pro-Palestinian female activist that was really captivating, as well as one with Jessica Mills of MRR and Less Than… Continue

MENTALLY ILL / $1
5.5 x 8.25 – copied – 8 pgs.
This is a quick, jab-to-the-gut of a zine – a hand-drawn siren from a politically minded father/husband/writer who suffers from deep pockets of depression. Mentally Ill is a glimpse into Greg’s mind in a few short pages of erratically-drawn comics – some drawn so faintly it’s like he couldn’t muster getting the pen to the page. (CH)
To order Mentally Ill, Absent Cause… Continue

I just started a new zine called Bookstore Thief
, after being out of the zine world for about 15 years. Back in the day I used to write a zine called Every Girl's Dream
. Anyhoo, this one is mostly bookstore adventures, as in working in them. One day I got robbed at gunpoint. And that is how this zine came into being. You can buy a copy at my etsy shop
, or I might be willing to trade for your zine. I like… Continue

Hey! I finally got around to making more copies of Diatribe Issue Five and finished Diatribe Issue Six!
Issue five (25 copies were released in 2006) covers such fantastic topics as my conflicting views on religion (and the value voters folks), drunk dialing, the short list of things that really ire up my blood (nationalists, "manly" men, and and rockabilly to name a few) along with some contributions from my good friend Will (a history… Continue
