learning to leave a paper trail distro
january was a bit of a slow month in terms of zines being added to the catalogue, but the one new zine that did come in is especially awesome: "fire hazard" #2, from providence RI, self-described as being all about "punk rock, anarchy, food, kombucha, gardens, rage <3 <3 <3 <3, friends, mental health, healing, books, bikes,… Continue

Hey everyone, just wanted to show you some of the comics and zines that have been recently added to Black Light Diner Distro!
EIGHTEEN LONG DAYS (Amherst, MA)
Leann’s travel diary documents her journey to Chicago in January 2007 to take a writing class with cartoonist Lynda Barry (one of my favorites, too). On the way, she celebrates Xmas with family, bonds with her sister, explores art galleries, and trawls the Windy City. The drawings are filled with a certain… Continue

Have you seen that Google is giving away stickers they made - and they are only doing it through the mail. Pretty cool. You can find more about it on their blog

Dear Story To… Friends and Contributors,
We know we haven’t been in contact for quite some time and we do apologise but unfortunately it has been necessary for us to put Story To… on hold.
Beth and Chris have been tied up working on another project, Drone Magazine. Kate has been busy moving countries over the last few months and now resides in Taipei, Taiwan.
We are all currently in discussion about the fate of Story To… and will get back to you as soon as we… Continue

1st meeting for Richmond Zine Fest 2009 will be happening later next week. Probably preliminary, not exactly open type of meeting, and a very short meeting to boot.
Updates will occur more often as the planning progresses and details are confirmed. If you want the updates, it is best to either bookmark www.richmondzinefest.org or add us as friends on myspace or facebook (links are at the top of our profile page at the moment). We may send out messages to our WMZ friends, but who… Continue

I got sidetracked and it's been so long since iv done an episode of zinecore. I miss it terribly. And so, if I have asked you to be on the show before but didn't follow through I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Tomorrow I plan to get in touch with a lot of you again. In the meantime, if you are interested in being a guest, talking about your zine, promoting a project, get in touch!

The exciting world of Web:
is continuing with the latest issue - a homage to the out-going US administration.
Front Cover of issue 44
Back cover if issue 44
It's an exciting, action-packed thrill-ride that never lets up from start to finish. Then it's all over and you look around wondering what more there is to life.
But that's ok, because there are 43… Continue

A big props up to everyone who submitted a zine for the exhibit! It was exceptional!!! We had over 200 people attend the opening and multiple people cutting and pasting!!!! People were spread out over the gallery floor. Now that's what I call upping the status quo white wall art world!

You never know what you find when you look for music on etsy.com. Music isn’t about major labels or even money anymore. I will prove it with my next few reviews.
Hell, with this album its not even about music.
The Final Grrrls are a wordcore band, their headline on myspace proudly proclaims “a wordcore revolution” Being a wordcore girl myself I’m happy about this. The Final Grrrls are just two girls but boy do they pack a huge glittery punch. Its a split album half Jolie Drama (nee… Continue

I just recently found this site. I'm from Montana, have lived in Alaska, Northern California, and am currently geographically isolated in Northern idaho. I rarely get out to see bands anymore, but when I do, its religious. I spend a lot of time on youtube watching punk/indi shows from the glorious early-to-mid 90's. I hike constantly and often run into interesting animals. When I do, I write about it. I published "Spaghetti dinner and Dancing Fanzine" from 1994-2002. I still randomly publish… Continue

This zine that is ready is the culmination of my writing for the A Poem a Day exercise. It's not the big compilation zine containing work by many poets. This one is just me.
I am asking $2 or cool trade for it. It has over twenty new poems, all by me. It's 22 pages, 8 and 1/2 by 5 and 1/2.
I think it's great! I hope other people will think so too.
To order it, write to me at

I spent most of today and all of tonight working on these:
I did not make them because I am selling them or even because I wanted to hand them out (although I will). I mainly made them because I wanted to create a freebie so that you and others can download the pdf and have an inexpensive, unique valentine to give to people, or so that people might be inspired to make their own versions.
It was something I thought about a couple weeks ago and I… Continue

I´ve been seeing the name, and some of the writings of, Arthur Moyse in issues of Peter Good´s "The Cunningham Amendment" for a few years now. Then one day I received with a letter from Peter a page of artwork by Arthur from an old issue of "Anarchism Lancastrium". I liked it so much that I figured the best way to find out more about Arthur was to conduct a brief interview with Dr. Good (by post, of course). Peter was kind enough to pass my questions on to Dave Cunliffe and David Peers, two… Continue

yay---today I put the finishing touches on VISCERA issue 3.
I'm happy with the way my series of zines are progressing but still seeing ways I could make them better.
I've already been working ideas for issue 4....

I should really improve on my french, and my blogging skillz.
Alas, I'm sitting in the telly room on a saturday night bored out of my mind, while my sister is engrossed in a film about the Jacksons (starring the worst look-alikes I have ever come across) on 'True Movies'. I think we might go to the cinema later, though I don't know what we will see. I saw Valkyrie on Wednesday, and I didn't rate it. The story is fascinating, but seriously, Tom Cruise? The way it was organised was also… Continue
