Comix galore

Hey guys. I just recently finish not one, but two comics. My 24 hour comic, Fail Monster and the fifth issue of my comic journal, Dinosaur vs. Robot.

Obviously, you can buy or trade for them anytime. Just send me a message.

Fires, Adirondack Chairs and the Essence of Peace

Listen. Can I share something with you all? Can I tell you something for real? I really love fires man! Not in a weirdo pyromaniac kind of way you understand, but in a simple hanging out around a fire pit kind of way. I love the sound burning wood makes. The crackle and popping and gentle rhythmic sway of the airwaves. I love the colours that dance and flicker and lick the air. I love the warmth it spreads. Not only externally but internally as well.

I have had a fire pit in my… Continue

Let's see, what's up in my zine world this week... i taught a workshop at the IPRC about selling zines and things on Etsy and I also educated everyone on the Joy's of We Make Zines. it was fun! I volunteered at Wordstock on Saturday but I didn't make it to the IPRC Text Ball because my old housemate Abeni showed up with her baby so we hung out and ate candy instead.

Sunday was my shift at the IPRC. Sunday is usually pretty dead but the… Continue

This is my "Witnessing 9/11 from Overseas" story which appears in issue # 13 of the zine Syndicate Product: The Television Issue

Witnessing 9/11 from Overseas by Kristoffer Mininger

After lunch we had an hour of free time before getting back to our farm duties. On this particular day James and I had gone down to the dried-up lake bed to check the sheep for maggots. It seems odd now that this was something we did in our free time.

After the break, James ran into town to borrow some carpentry tools. I went down to “the slats” to check on a sick cow. I was tossing fresh straw around the… Continue

Hello zinesters!

Here at Fallyrag we're putting together plans for our Winter Solstice edition (22/12/08) and are looking to review a zine that fits this mold. We'd like to feature a zine that includes either story-telling, the stars (and the solar system), or has a spiritual, esoterical thread.

No fat red santa clauses / father christmases / or Coca-Cola related works!

Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards, Jon

I want to stock new zines!

After an inspiring weekend at Ladyfest Manchester and a very seriously dented distro stock I have decided it is time for new zines, lots of them.

marching stars distro (www.marchingstars.co.uk) is a 16 month old UK based distro which has hopefully now proved it has staying power in these unstable distro times.

Zines that I choose to stock I am 110% behind and I so take seriously my role of helping to get zines out there in the world to the right people. Oh, and I freaking… Continue

Most afternoons I put on my favourite music and have a dance. Today it was to the Ministry of Sound Annual 2006, such a classic album. I bought it for a ski trip to Beaver Creak USA, Nothing quite like double diamonds to a thumping beat, I highly recommend it for mogals. Personally, I don't see the appeal, powder is so much better.

Each to their own.
