You never know what you find when you look for music on etsy.com. Music isn’t about major labels or even money anymore. I will prove it with my next few reviews.
Hell, with this album its not even about music.
The Final Grrrls are a wordcore band, their headline on myspace proudly proclaims “a wordcore revolution” Being a wordcore girl myself I’m happy about this. The Final Grrrls are just two girls but boy do they pack a huge glittery punch. Its a split album half Jolie Drama (nee… Continue

ok... so i've been a bit slack in regards to giving the lowdown of my zine activity origins. first up - i hail from australia. i've resided in london town for nee on 5 years now, and wouldn't you know it the year that i decide i'm packing it in and hitting the road again i stumble upon this site and a network of uk zinesters! grrrr.

I just recently found this site. I'm from Montana, have lived in Alaska, Northern California, and am currently geographically isolated in Northern idaho. I rarely get out to see bands anymore, but when I do, its religious. I spend a lot of time on youtube watching punk/indi shows from the glorious early-to-mid 90's. I hike constantly and often run into interesting animals. When I do, I write about it. I published "Spaghetti dinner and Dancing Fanzine" from 1994-2002. I still randomly publish… Continue

This zine that is ready is the culmination of my writing for the A Poem a Day exercise. It's not the big compilation zine containing work by many poets. This one is just me.
I am asking $2 or cool trade for it. It has over twenty new poems, all by me. It's 22 pages, 8 and 1/2 by 5 and 1/2.
I think it's great! I hope other people will think so too.
To order it, write to me at

I spent most of today and all of tonight working on these:
I did not make them because I am selling them or even because I wanted to hand them out (although I will). I mainly made them because I wanted to create a freebie so that you and others can download the pdf and have an inexpensive, unique valentine to give to people, or so that people might be inspired to make their own versions.
It was something I thought about a couple weeks ago and I… Continue

I´ve been seeing the name, and some of the writings of, Arthur Moyse in issues of Peter Good´s "The Cunningham Amendment" for a few years now. Then one day I received with a letter from Peter a page of artwork by Arthur from an old issue of "Anarchism Lancastrium". I liked it so much that I figured the best way to find out more about Arthur was to conduct a brief interview with Dr. Good (by post, of course). Peter was kind enough to pass my questions on to Dave Cunliffe and David Peers, two… Continue

yay---today I put the finishing touches on VISCERA issue 3.
I'm happy with the way my series of zines are progressing but still seeing ways I could make them better.
I've already been working ideas for issue 4....

I should really improve on my french, and my blogging skillz.
Alas, I'm sitting in the telly room on a saturday night bored out of my mind, while my sister is engrossed in a film about the Jacksons (starring the worst look-alikes I have ever come across) on 'True Movies'. I think we might go to the cinema later, though I don't know what we will see. I saw Valkyrie on Wednesday, and I didn't rate it. The story is fascinating, but seriously, Tom Cruise? The way it was organised was also… Continue

this one’s about sobriety & betrayal, singlehood, the bizarre ways that ACT-UP inadvertantly trickled into my suburban childhood, tough girls, wacky stories, inspiration & a whole lot more. here is the first page of the intro, as a teaser:

Calling all Far Northern zine-sters and artists, this March Upholstery will be having their first show for 2009, called Gutter Trash! This is a show about Zine culture, street press and random self publish ramblings.
Cairns (Australia) has had a recent spate of self-published offerings, so Upholstery thought they would bring em all together and showcase the best, the worst and the randoms!
No Upholstery are not reviving their last zine A5, but will be launching a new… Continue

Now that Obama is safely buckled into the White House this is a good time to relax and write that essay you have been meaning to write for We'll Never Have Paris. Don't know what to write? Think of it as an email to a friend you are never going to send. Something real and not fictional, something personal but universal. something 1,000 words or less.
OR send me Facebook status messages, tiny bubbles of prolonged failure.
thanks. contact me with questions, send submissions… Continue

I won;t be posting much because I'm not a fan of too much computer time, but I like this idea and Krissy rules.
Sandstone #25 will be copied up shortly. It records Tracy and my trips to Utah, New Mexico, eastern Oregon, and the 2008 Portland Zine Symposium. This is the only zine I've done that is all positive, almost no politics. I'm curious to hear any reactions because I've never done just a travel story before. Includes multiple pages of zine reviews, photos from Mesa… Continue

I'm also trying to make zines with my seventh and eighth graders:
if you have a place to post that somewhere, that would be incredible.
