So, while the options are limited on what you can do with a blogger page, we did some layout work to try to make the distro easier to read/use, a little prettier... Any thoughts? Anything you'd like to see?
I 've been wondering if people would like it better if the side links were separated by what type of thing they are (zine, handmade book, cd, tape, record), or if that would just get jumbled and confusing.
Would love to hear what people think. Thanks! -MVP/JJ...… Continue

if you are organizing events, you should alot time to reply with care to requests and queries. If several people are having the same problem and don't receive responses and also need information...maybe you should organize somehting simpler that allows you time to be courteous enough to not leave people hanging on multiple occassions.

I've finished my assingment for the Open University course I'm doing. Deadline was today, so of course, I was just really getting into it today! But it's done, tradition as the justification for religious innovation in English Christianity, discuss with 2 or 3 examples. Phew!I actually really enjoyed writing it.
Anywa, now that it's finally done, I can get on with Estrones. And maybe Crone as well.

I am trying to raise some funds to help a local family pay for their grandson's funeral. Actually, many people in my local community are doing various fundraisers for this family. I will be donating a percentage of Sweet Candy orders this weekend, it is the best way I know I can help financially.
This little boy was being raised by his grandparents and was only 6 years old. He just graduated from Kindergarten. He suffered permanent injuries from a car accident that he was in last… Continue

Hey hey readers, Good news from KERA-FM our local public radio station. They have announced that they will be starting a second radio station dedicated to music. See here for the details:
I wrote them the following:
This sounds exciting for both musicians and music lovers. I look forward to hearing it.
I also would like to suggest somethings that I hope programmers will consider.
1. Ask for advice from everyone before… Continue

Hope to add more stuff on here in a little while. Our newest issue will be hitting on July 4. Check us out www.gaminginsurrection.com and our… Continue

Hullo, We Make Zines.
In the mid 90s a few pals and I ran a zine from where we lived in the Scottish Borders, named Sun Zoom Spark
(after a Captain Beefheart song). We ended up getting it distributed throughout the uk. It was full of absurdist humour, trashy artwork and photography, bizarre stories, stuff about female sexuality + interviews with old time punkers like The Ramones & Jonathan Richman, the up 'n' coming Brit… Continue

My monthly zine, Blah Blah Blah, is about myself -- my adventures, my struggles, my day to day life. It is my memoir in real time.
Subscribing to my zine gives you the unique experience of receiving a zine in the mail every month.
Every zine is just eight pages and is 1/4 size.
If you make a zine regularly and sell subscriptions I would love to trade subscriptions.
I am also open to trading my back issues with people… Continue

He stood back as he watched the flames lick around the windows. They ate up the curtains and went to devouring the window panes. They danced along the porch railing. They twisted and fell, and rose again, hungrily reaching for more. Towards the roof, the sky, the heavens.
Little did he know at the time, it was to be the first of several arson charges.
Instead, it felt cleansing at the time in ways he didn't know how to describe. He was never a man of beauty, but standing… Continue

Donne said that the hardest lesson/realization in life is INCONSTANCY - that things are never lasting but always changing. I believe that. I've often taken comfort from movement myself. And here I go again, moving house (back to Devon) some friends can't keep track. And when I have to stay in a place for an extended period of time I'm so restless I end up visiting everyone. I think, the only kind of constancy I want in my life is the kind that comes through love and self-love - that placid… Continue

I bought a very pretty box in Machynllyth yesterday. I wasn't looking for a box to keep zines in, honestly! But it's so cute and those quarter size zines fit into it nicely. It's dark blue with flowers on it, and a picture of two cats on the lid. And i have a zine collection! I got three issues of Telegram Ma'am
and two of Culture Slut
from MarchingStars, and a copy of Fanzine Yfyntyn
and Imaginary Uncles
I'm still doing Crone
, but I've also… Continue
