WMZ Mentioned in my 200th Issue, 100 Page Zine Musea, People Issue

WMZ has a nice mention in my big 200th issue of Musea, both a people issue of all the people I've known connected to the zine, and an underground history of Dallas 1992-2017.


For mention of many zines, see zine chapter, and online chapter.

Utopian Cinema

The first new zine I've made in over a year is now available in my shop!

Titled UTOPIAN CINEMA, it grew out of an artist residency I did this summer where I ran a screening and discussion series of "utopian" films. Our culture seems to be saturated with dystopian narratives, but utopian ones are a lot harder to come by these days. So this might be of interest to anyone looking for some hopeful viewing suggestions in these dark times.…

Censored Art News (see entry for how media has blocked zines.

Censored Art News.

Those who protest major media say that many important political issues are never covered. They rightly fight against censored news. I agree. The press should go beyond the scandal of the few and cover the issues of the millions.

But the problem is more than censored political or social issues. There is censored art news. This article looks at some major art stories that are seldom talked about.

When was the last time you heard a protest song on…

Writings In Science, sci-fi novel by Musea, has hard science too

My sci-fi novel, Writings in Science is a History of the future told in stories, essays, poems ,and plays. There is hard science and romantic science too

Hard science examples: 1. OOL was chemical selection caused by UV in a day night cycle. 2. There is a direction to evolution - in every selection there is better catabolic or anabolic processes.…

Quizzical answer to last one, and question for the next

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

How many words in English have only one letter. Clue this is a trick question.


Thousands. Craig Conley in his book One-Letter Words, a Dictionary, and website lists pages and pages. Here are some samples. A team, B list, C battery, D cup ..

"Conley teaches us that each letter's many different meanings span multiple subjects, including science—B denotes a blood type and also is a symbol for… Continue

Puzzled again

Long break, but we are back with questions to keep your brains sharp.

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

What did the Wizard of Oz (in the book - not the movie) give to the Scarecrow to keep his brains sharp? Clue: the answer is in the "Little Wizard Stories of Oz" from 1914,


Pins and needles, so his brains would stay sharp.

Bruce Pavitt founder of Sub Pop talks about the Music Business

Sub Pop Label founder Bruce Pavitt sees the same music problems as I do. 3 CEO’s have ruined it, support only teen pop, and refuse to allow music to grow or change – while all other musicians have been marginalized out of any real careers.

Here are quotes from the music buisness worldwide website article. See link.

“The pop charts have never been this conservative, ever. There are literally 10-20 artists who are in the Top 100; it’s a very closed system unless you’re… Continue

Girl's Guide to Surviving Hardcore

My first ever zine is a chance to look into the lives of the women in the hardcore community.

My zine isn't universal; it doesn't speak for every single woman. However, it simply provides a platform for those wanting to make their voices heard. The name's a gimmick; the zine talks wholly about women being accepted and contributing to a community. That's what's great about…

TraumaRama #1

Hey so I made this new zine, TraumaRama #1. Here's the Etsy link, but let me know if you want to trade.

This is my first fancy colored cover. I'm really happy about it!

Here's the description:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be a difficult disorder to manage. Not only do people with PTSD have to cope with the emotional aftermath of trauma, there is significant societal stigma regarding mental illness. In TraumaRama #1, Kari Tervo aims to end the stigma and…

2017 looks to be scary

Hey all,

Hell of a year, 2016, and I have to admit that gnawing fear is chewing up my insides with what looms in 2017. But, hey, I did zines while Clinton, Bush, and Obama were in office and I'll still be doing them under the next regime of butchers sharpening their knives looking to cut social services, environmental programs, and anyone not rich white and male.

So, I had two zines planned for the next year: Chittering Madness Volume 2 and one about the importance of…
