Why are some zines so hard to name?

Hey folks! I've been a busy zinester over the last year, and I've been a slacker to post them up on the net. Here's what they are and their descriptions:
10 Dirty Little Secrets - This was my 24 hour zine for 2007. Inside are 10 of my own personal dirty secrets. It's fairly image heavy and a quick read, but I've gotten really good feedback on it. It's a 24 page quarter size, and $1 or trade of course!
Pandora's Box #18 - This is the latest issue of my perzine. Inside I… Continue

I am so sick of not having a separate workspace for my projects. Between the zines, the art stuff, and the fiber related stuff, my house is a mess. Every time I want to have an actual meal everything has to be moved from the table then put back when we're done eating. It sucks! Every house we've lived in has had an extra room that I could turn into a studio/office. Until this place. It's the nicest and the biggest of the places we've lived, but there are no extra rooms for me to claim as work… Continue

Work on the Aussie queer zine goes well - I've already got a few people on board who I know will create something awesome for it - if you're interested: runwaykite(at)gmail(dot)com
It's funny when you're focused on something, you are clued into similar happenings on. I read MCV the other day, which I never really read, and saw a call-out for an aussie queer anthology called 'banQuet'. Aside from the unfortunate name, it could be promising. It's a bit different to what I'm looking to… Continue

Well, it was a great zine fair to start with... I got to run a zine workshop and be on a panel with some other zine makers. Unfortunately, I was stuck behind my table for most of the day and only got the briefest window to go and see what was about.
My favourite thing that I picked up was a one-off zine by Prado Marin. I really like getting the only copy of something, and this one is very nice. It's a sewn-together collection of bits of magazines, collage, graph paper, tracing paper, etc.… Continue

Hi everyone, I very lazily make a zine called, 'F/8 and be there'
It's a small collection of things, moments and engagements that make me take a second look and think, I love to show what I've seen to other people. For me that's what taking photos is about.

We still need just a few folks that can lend their wit and writ to interview a handful of artists for our rad/ical arts magazine. We love folks that can ask probing, pointed questions with a critical eye. Are you that somebody? (thanks aaliyah)
Too, we're looking for people to climb aboard as members of the core collective. Right now we exist as a compact unit of three and would love more hands/hearts/heads/voices in the mix to help create something sustainable. We're specifically… Continue

Last night was a big one for the world. It was the night of the first world orchestra - the Youtube orchestra!
The Youtube orchestra's first performance was Wednesday night April 15 2009. It's a big deal and something that should be noted not only in the history books - which it will be - but noted now - when it happens. Here's the info from the youtube video:
The world's first collaborative online orchestra performed at Carnegie Hall on April 15, 2009. Selected by the… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
His San Francisco architect’s drawings were “discovered in 1990, stacked in piles in the garage of a recently deceased tenant. The young woman who discovered the drawings decided to take them to a San Francisco gallery owner for assessment…. Upon reviewing the drawings, (she) could not believe what she was seeing: on thirty-nine sheets of vellum were drawn the most detailed, fantastic buildings—whole cities, in… Continue

In the first issue of ArtXX, we included a few pages of DIY/craft-action, which was fun, well & good, and a great opportunity to support other folks making amazing things. As we draw close to putting the finishing touches on the second issue, we were thinking of dropping the DIY section, as we were unsure of whether it meshed well with the rest of the publication.
Then, recently, I stopped by Needles & Pens ( www.needles-pens.com ) for my monthly rifling-through-their-racks… Continue

so, i am sorry but this site is filled with assholes who make me feel sad and upset about the state of zines. If WE MAKE ZINES is a reflection of the new generation of zinesters then we are in serious trouble.
I refuse to keep my mouth shut. Everytime someone writes something stupid on here that I can see I will speak my mind. Even if it means I am a devil cunt whore everyone grows to hate.
I LOVE ZINES. I LOVE ZINES for VERY intense reasons.
