Is it a bit more streamlined? Yes!
Is it a bit more relevant to my actual life? Yes!
Is it updated with plans for the zine? Yes!
It's wonderful! And I'm just very happy...as you can tell...

Here's the cover and a sample page of my 24-Hour Zine Thing creation, On Loving 'Dracula.'
I created it on my birthday, July 16. It includes an essay on the 1931 film directed by Tod Browning and starring Bela Lugosi, quotes from the movie, recommendations for further reading, and many posters and images from the film. It's 24 pages, 1/2 size, black and white.
This was the first time I've done a cut-and-paste zine. It was lots of fun! If you have a day to devote to being… Continue

This week is something different. I usually talk about some aspect of the arts and media, but this time my subject is science - specifically sleep, and a possible reason why we sleep. My ideas on sleep are certainly novel ideas. But you will also find a lot of casual evidence to support them in studies posted on the internet. I have put his essay on a science newsgroup, and I'm reposting it here. If these ideas are true, they may point the way to some important discoveries… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,

Science fiction writer Stanislaw Lem wrote about spray-on clothing in his 1961 novel "Return from the Stars".
We had no winner, Seems y'all were spraying clothes… Continue

...and i will always be the one to swim with you
is an 8pg. mini zine about a specific person who i can't get off my mind. so far, the people have been romantically inclined.. however i'm already thinking of making another issue about an old friend who i'm constantly reminded of. i have found that in making these zines, it helps get the person off my mind. those secret thoughts of mine are no… Continue

I know, I haven't finished Crone
yet. I've had a couple of set backs. We were without the 'net for a week while BT dickered about with the broadband. It took just about six calls a day to the helpline in India before it was finally fixed. I was gnawing the furniture in the meantime.
However, I managed to entertain myself by dislocating and breaking the little toe on my left foot. Don't ask how. My husband and daughter joke that I could cut myself on the air, I'm that clumsy.… Continue

Here's the review of my zine Adult Themes
that recently appeared on the Book Spew site (http://bookspewreview.wordpress.com/zines/)
Oh what a relief to read XXX rated work that isn’t packed full of “romantic” words, all wrapped up neatly for dumb readers.
Chantel G. is such a wonderful writer. She has a fabulous writing style that really makes you want to read on. From her sex dreams, to her poetry and her stories are all packed… Continue

It's 4:25 in the afternoon in Lawrence, KS. I just stapled the last of my 24 Hour Zine zines.
Called Open Book
, this new zine turned out well. I am pleased with it. It's not perfect, but I've never seen a zine that was.
I met my goals of #1 simply completing the zine in 24 hours (or less) #2 making it more visually stimulating than past zines and #3 writing more honestly.
It includes 38 things about me (and a shout out to Eunice for the idea), writing… Continue

Please do stop by the table and say hi, maybe trade a zine, or just pick one up.
See you there Friday and Saturday.

Whew! It's 12:40 in the afternoon, and I have just finished all the writing and layout of my zine. Yippee!
I was not feeling so great when I got up this morning, but I stuck it out, had some food, got excited about zine making again.
I think I'm going take a quick shower then look at the bus schedule. I don't have access to a car today, so I have to find out when I can catch the bus with my bike and go to the copy store. I am going to have it completed by 6pm, I know it!

It's just about 8:15. I do NOT feel like being awake and out of bed, but here I am dedicated to making my 24 Hour Zine happen. I don't think I have any caffeine in the house. Drats! I don't know how I am going to stay awake and typing, but i am determined.
It's been an awfully long time since the old lady I have become has stayed up basically night and then tried to be creative/artistic on just a few hours of sleep. Wish I didn't have to work around the schedule of the copy shop… Continue

Well, it's not quite 5am, but "4:45 update" didn't make for such a great title.
i can't believe I am still awake. I can barely keep my eyes open, much less type. I am beginning to have those lack of sleep hallucinations, so I think think I should go lie down for a while, maybe sleep a bit.
The name of the zine is Open Book
, by the way, and I have 17 pages written and laid out. Only five more pages to go. I have no idea what I will write about, but I am sure I will… Continue
