Today I put in my time to Razorcake a D.I.Y. music fanzine. To sound extremely trite I think it's great...I wonder why whenever something has to do with writing my writing voice sounds so 3rd grade and valley girl except I'm 28 and a man? Anywho, it's tough in this day and age for such an endeavor to survive and Razorcake is celebrating its 50th issue. I'm proud to say I have some record reviews in but I'm not going to tote my horn anymore. Overall the 50th… Continue

The Museum of Contemporary Art zine fair was on yesterday, and from start to finish I left my table only twice, once to deliver some zines to another table, once to go to the toilet and get a coffee. Sorry, amazing new zinester whose work I missed out on - I was too busy to buy your zine.
In typical Rigozzi fashion, I had drastically underestimated the amount of zines I would need, thinking that their exorbitant price tag would turn people away. So I had to break out the stack of… Continue

He wandered thru the wastelands, a ragged form staggering along. However long he had been out here, he did not know. It seemed forever. The need to go on overwhelmed him. His mind thought of nothing else than what lay ahead unseen, his goal, his reason to keep going. He never turned to look behind him. The further he got away from where he had left, the better.
Oh, but the expanse of the land!
It went on and on in every direction he could see.
Barren, except for the occasional… Continue

everyone acts like we're not spinning around on a really vibrant and weird and horrifying rock in billions upon billions of miles of freezing nothingness in a dimension we have no clue about
I want to pulverise their skull through their face with a pneumatic drill just to feel I am respecting the... awesomeness of this existence Continue

Anarchism, Self-publishing, and the Anti-Sleep League at Philadelphia: A memoir by Robert P. Helms from "Going Postal!" #1
When I remember my early years of involvement in anarchism, a wide range of images and feelings wander through my mind and across my skin. Starting in the summer of 1989, I started to explore the idea in places other than library stacks, mostly in Philadelphia. Between 1991 and around 2000, the circle to which I belonged maintained a capacity to publish… Continue

I'm glowing (if not downright blushing) just at the minute after an absolutely awesome review of my weaving zines by Diane Gilleland over at the Crafty Pod - http://www.craftypod.com/2009/05/21/ooooh-weaving-zines/. I've not got anything else to say about it; it was just very nice to wake up to!

I thought I'd deleted my old Ning account months ago, but apparently it's still valid. Good thing, I guess.
I have a main blog, and try to keep the off-shoot to a minimum, so here I'll just stick to the occasional zine-related stuff.
After finishing issue 3 of Carpe Noctem
(no, not that
Carpe Noctem), I've started sending it out for reviews. I'm going to try to get submissions for issue 4 and have that… Continue

Perhaps you have heard of the writers organization called PEN. See the PEN website at http://www.pen.org/ They write:
"PEN’s programs reach out to the world and into diverse communities within this country. They promote writing and literature at every level and are founded on the belief that free expression is an essential component of every healthy society."
But an investigation by King Wenclas, one of the founders of ULA, Underground Literary… Continue

As my work is displayed more and more across this city and via hear-say and say-hear, people are showing interest to the point of purchase &/or commision of interviews or trade and wearing patches.
The other week at Mia’s (local bar), this guy Kevin recognized me from my art show from the prior month at Tacos Locos and mentioned his interest in my art for an album cover. I have yet to hear his work, but am thoroughly interested in such a project. The idea of… Continue

writing I added on back reads:
"When I was about 11 or 12 yeas old me and two mates put together this zine. It doesn't really follow any narrative and there is an obsession with the number 69, but it is quite an amusing read. There are a lot of references to our warped Kiwi childhood and the… Continue
