I thought the zine was finished and just needed to be laid out.
Then I got home and realized that I wasn't happy with the ending. Now I am trying to write an ending, and I am STUCK.
I think I need to move the computer out of the messy office. I think I need to sit down and write before I go to work, as I seem too tired after work.
Endings are hard. Beginnings and middles aren't always easy either.

I just finished a zine. Its mainly art -drawings and scribbles with comments and musings by me. It's short tales of my experience as a black queer living in the world today. It's A5 and not too long, so good for those with short attention spans.

We're working on some changes on our Musea.us website. In looking through the listings, I found 3 main sections on art that I brought together on my blog at
They are titled:
1. Snake Oil – A Conceptual Art Piece/Video/Event that uses Conceptual Art to Attack the Abuses of Conceptual Art.
2.. The Last Minute of Modern Art Conceptual Art Event

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
This is a realistic method of painting only in grays that often imitates 3D sculpture. It was popular in 15th century Northern European paintings. Name it.
Grisaille. Next time you look at these Northern European masterpiece paintings, notice the skill with which they painted sculpture to look like 3D!
I had no winner. Seems y'all were thinking in 2D!

I've decided to make a zine, after donkey's years of doing nothing. A few apazines don't count. I came up with the title Crone
, since I'm 48. I'm also working on some little minizines, those 8-pagers. That might be fun! I really need to see some zines though. Not that I want to copy or anything like that, but sometimes it does help to see what's out there.
I found a few zines I have in my collection of SF fanzines. Blimey! Were we really so young! And always depressed and… Continue

This review first appeared on the Feminist Review website
(Sadly, I lost the ring before this review was even published. I just hope the person who found it loves it as much as I did.)
I found another beautiful piece of jewelry on Etsy. I was looking at member profiles on We Make Zines and found a link to a fellow zinester’s Etsy shop. I like seeing cool things other imaginative folks have made, so I… Continue

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
