I have now been delging into the new world of zine-making for a good couple of months now, but my very first Zine Fair was the Wollongong City Gallery Zine Fair, held last weekend in the Grand Legal Ballroom..er, room of Wollongong Art Gallery.
It is very possible that the room that the Zine Fair was held in is not called The Grand Legal Ballroom room...but it should be. It has very nice polished wooden floors, suitable for some good ol' pointed toes, and then strangely it has some… Continue

Call out - GLBTIQQ zine, stories of growing up queer in Australia.
Based on the fact that there is such a small number of aussie queer zines (please email me if you write one on the chance I've missed it), I'm keeping this fairly broad. Basically, I'd like to put together an Australian colaborative queer zine (only Australian-based in content) and I would like personal articles and essays and possibly to a lesser extent, art. I am willing to consider a broad spectrum of things… Continue

We’re hoping you might be able to help. To keep the online store open, it costs us far more than the small amounts we get from selling zines. We want to keep growing the zine distro and expanding the possbilities for the zinemakers we stock. To do this, we currently rely on people ordering things online, at zine fairs, and also the money we get from sales of Susy Pow’s zines - Tea & Biscuits, Don’t Panic, Everything Was Beautiful & Nothing Hurt, Comparisons Between… Continue

If you’ve been toiling around my traps recently you may have been cajoled and accosted by me to do whatever-the-fuck-you-want to one page in a little zine-like scrapbook I’ve been creating and letting you create. The first book is nearly full. It’s full of things by (off the top of my head):
Simon Unwin (of the band, Intentions)
Jodie Brabin (of the Dep’t of Ageing)
Catman (of the zine, Krumpets, and the music Catman)
Dan Bolton (of that old band Faux Hawks)

New BETRAYED blog post is out.
I'm on my ownsome this time - camerads will be back next week. Planning for Balmer DIY Fest, exciting. I think I did a good job holding up the fort on my own. Swinging next week back to horrifying, this week's a little more lighthearted, because I'm coming out of grief. A friend of mine died. Got to write funny stuff to make myself feel better.
Hope you all are… Continue

Submissions are now open for the 4th issue of Hoopla - the world’s most revolutionary craft zine.
The theme for Issue #4 is MAKEing Love. As always the theme is open to interpretation (you can even ignore it completely) but is based around the idea that craft action is positivist action. It’s about creating the world we want to see as opposed to protesting against the way things are.
Submissions welcome in the form of pictures, patterns and writing or a combination of the… Continue

For you readers outside of Dallas, We have one main daily, The Dallas Morning News, and one main Weekly, the Dallas Observer.
Jesse Hughey, blogger from the Dallas Observer DC9 Blog, e-mailed me on April First and suggested an April Fool’s Joke. He would interview me, and then instead of the usual pro-band conservative Observer stance, he would agree with my ideas.
Well, I don’t know how well the joke worked, but it did allow me to spell out my ideas on the art and music… Continue

As a Liberal Studies student I am required to pick a topic that interests me and complete a project based on that topic. Identity Development is a topic that has been very prevelant throughout my college education through my minor in Human Development, and through the many Liberal Studies "teacher" classes… Continue

Hanson, a failed Spec Ops sergeant with a chequered past and a head full of demons, has been transferred to Crowley Island, an abandoned goverment centre where the dead and the damned feed on the living. Crowley Island was once a Necro-research facility. Hundreds were maimed and killed in the government’s quest for occult knowledge. Until one day, they succeeded in opening a Door. But what came through wasn’t what they had hoped. It was Hell. And now the only thing standing between that and the… Continue
