Do folks know about the Queer Zine Archive Project? I just discovered it. I plan to spend some time (when I have some time) exploring the QZAP website.
Here's the web address: http://www.qzap.org/v5/index.php
Here's some info about the QZAP:
The Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) was first launched in November 2003 in an effort to preserve queer zines and make them available to other queers, researchers, historians, punks, and anyone else who has an interest DIY… Continue

I was supposed to go to the Bash Back gathering in Chicago this weekend, but my friend had to change her plans when she got a gig to photograph a wedding down South. I decided not to go alone.
Some friends of mine have a lovely
loft with huge west facing windows and hundreds of books on shelves lining the walls. They said I could spend the weekend here writing. I've been fortunate enough to make myself my own free, four day writing retreat.
So far I've used the time… Continue

Portland, Oregon Zine happenings...
I just got back from a month long trip to the UK and France! I attended the London Zine Symposium, went on a mini UK zine tour, hung out with rad folks and then headed to France for the 20th birthday party of La Fanzinotheque! You can be sure that there will be a zine about my adventures! Check out photos and what not from my trip here: http://alexwrekk.wordpress.com

Many years ago I recorded my song, “AOL CAN GO AND TANK TOMORROW.
Seems they have. Or rather Time Warner has dumped AOL as announced today. Here’s some info and a link to my song.
As Variety Magazine writes, ”The merger with AOL was announced with great fanfare in early 2000 and closed a year later. It touched off a round of giant media mergers as other companies feared being left behind in a volatile media landscape. Time Warner changed its name to AOL Time… Continue

Philly Zine Fest is going strong, with a date set for our 2009 fest at the Rotunda in West Philly: Sunday September 20, 2009. Last year we had a great turnout, with distros and zinesters from across the mid Atlantic and Northeast showing up, as well as several workshops and cheap eats. We'll keep everyone posted with more details as they become available!

(or home zine libraries/personal zine libraries), I realize I have a fair amount of quite good zines in multiple copies that I don't distro and I'm a little unsure what to do with. I've donated to all the local zine libraries, so thought I'd throw it out there that, if anybody wanted an envelope of random zines to add to their collection, I would totally send an envelope like that yr way. I would just need a couplefew dollars for shipping. It would probably be 5 or so zines...let me know if… Continue

Readers, It's summer and time for some fun activities. Here's three to start off your summer.
The first is "CODE RINGS ON", a puzzle. It's TOUGH. I first published it many years ago with no one even attempting to solve it. So We'll try again.
The 2nd, "PAINT LIKE POLLACK" is a website where you can paint like Pollock. See the url and some tips. Thanks to the Art and Seek Blog for this idea.
The 3rd is "RIVErDALE RELATED" . Thanks to my sister Peggy for this… Continue

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
