Here's a nice interview with me. It's also about the MCA zine fair which is coming up next weekend. Last year it was so busy that I momentarily lost a shoe when trying to push through the crowds. This year I will dress more sturdily.
vampire sushi distro is a new UK based zine distro looking for submissions! mainly perzines, art zines, food zines, but everything goes! obviously no homophobic / racist / sexist etc material. leave the hating to the haters. vampire sushi is for lovers.
email us at vampiresushidistro (a) gmail.com for the address & more info.

I saw him speak at the London… Continue

We at the Ms Valerie Park Distro are headed to Boulder, Co in the morning to attend this weekend's Utne Reader awards ceremony because our very own Ariel Birks got nominated for Zine of the Year for Jesus Christ Superzine! Kinda weird, we're totally going to be the only zinesters at the thing, but how often do you get invited such a thing? For us, not very often. We'll keep y'all posted on the… Continue

So, I was pleasantly surprise when I went to my local library-- Multnomah county's Hollywood branch-- and found that they have started a zine exchange! Now, not only do they carry zines in many branches and offer a bunch of great zine info online, but they also facilitate zine trades!! They had a box below the zine shelf full of zines for trade on the honor system, like many book-borrowing… Continue
Due to a death in my family and starting classes, I've had to delay the normal functions of GENEROUS. The Spring/Summer issue is going to have some empahsis on health but since this is the first time I'm going with a theme, other topics are gladly welcomed!
If you haven't read my previous posts, here's a briefing.
GENEROUS is a women-themed 'zine with a humorous yet informative edge. We poke fun at pop culture instead of being a victim of here-today, gone-tomorrow… Continue

Unemployment, a state of atrophy that rots the mind and depresses the soul. OK so I may be being a tad melodramatic but anyone who has been unemployed for a long stretch during this current financial F**k up knows that living off government benefits is no where near as much fun as an episode of Shameless may suggest. The constant searching for any scrap of the paid work, the feeling of uselessness and lethargy and, if like me you finished your degree last year, an overpowering sense of… Continue
Before this week's message, here is a link to my 60th video.
It is a very very short one minute video - a poem video! on youtube.
If there is anyone else who has experimented with poem videos, let me know.
One positive thing the economic slowdown has done is advance the art revolution. And even though it is a revolution without a title yet, we can see some general… Continue
Ilse Content is one of my favorite zines. It has been around for six years and someday should get put in book form like Doris, Invincible Summer, or Cometbus- it's just as good as any of those. Until that day comes, we have a new issue out to satisfy our hungers. It just came out this week and I just put it up on the distro, you should check it out:
