Getting Ahead of Myself

I have a habit of getting ahead of myself. Of looking at everything I think a project can be and not thinking about the work involved.

It's occurred to me that my desire to to video reviews along with my typed reviews has stopped me from starting up reviews again. I could have had a few solid reviews up already.

In my internet meanderings, I have found zine review blog after zine review blog that has closed - most of them recently! (I never was one for good timing.) So what am…

This Week all 9 CD's, 150 songs, 10 year music project, on CDBaby

Friends,

My 10 year long, 150 song, 9 CD, voice and guitar, outside the box - set, is finished and ready for sale



This was quite a week for me. After working for a month or two, Webmaster Matthew Creed and I got all of my 9 CD's, 150 songs, in the Online Music Store CDBaby, the largest indie music selling site,

(and they in turn get it in all the other major stores, I-tunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.)



You are invited to be one of the first to view the CD pages. Start… Continue

The Quizzical, Hopefully not a Turkey

Musea Art Quiz

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

Since Mickey Mouse, almost all cartoon characters have had 4 fingers (one thumb and 3 fingers) instead of 5 like us 3d characters. Seems that is easier and faster to draw which saves the animators money.

OK but problems do arise. For example is cartoon land based on the number 8 system instead of a number 10? We will leave that pondering for another time. But here is your question about a… Continue

Assumptions, my dear Mitsy, are the mother of all fuck-ups.

'[...] when they WERE objectified and threatened.'



I'll be honest. I have a problem with this sad excuse of 'feminist representation,' and this is because I'm old fashioned. I smell the flowers, I stare at the clouds, and I complement people if I like their clothes.…

Newbie Here, Short Stories, and Zines

Hey there guys, I just joined here and I'm looking at all of these beautiful zines on here and etsy. I think I found out about these zines when I was reading about chapbooks which are made in almost the same way as a zine, except they are a lot more longer and text focused. I was planning on making one of my own, a chapbook originally. So I have a template and some writing, but I don't know how I'm going to go out to print this or even what designs or artwork to put in. I can't draw or drive…

Is this website still active?

I'm very much wanting to start a perzine (I'm 21, haven't written a zine since I was 17!), but I'm hoping for some pen pals, and zinesters to trade zines with! 

If anyone is interested in becoming pen pals with me or trading zines (once I write one), PM me!

Blessed Be!

Risobook 1

I printed a book in Riso, a very similar technique to screen printing. In January I bought a new machine. Hence the title I gave to my book 'Risobook 1 - MZ 1700 E' as a tribute to a small printing machine within the graphic industry, a bit like an experimental poet names his poems after the title of a manual.

I placed my collages and drawings on the Riso-scanner, chose a color and sometimes printed an image on top of another. I made some new collages for that new Riso-machine, but…

Call for Submissions: Dear Anonymous 3

I'm sorry I keep posting up this call, but I am still looking for letters. You can send more than one. :)

Dear Anonymous 3 is on its way and I'm once again looking for letters!

As for content, these letters can be confessionals, but they can also be whatever you like them to be. Write to your life, write to your cat, write to your past or your future... Dear Anonymous is about writing the letters of the things you can't say for whatever reason.

Send letters to…

Books on Zines

Well, no one can accuse me of half measures when I get into something...

I have a habit of taking on something new - from a new computer game to a new subject of interest - and reading everything I can about it. Watching tutorial, documentary, and every other sort of videos about the subject. So on and so forth.

There is, unfortunately, a limited number (about 6 in the search, 4 of which are somewhat relevant) or books available on the subject of zines. This is understandable…

A Bit Spesh

Well, I have half a dozen letters now for DA3, and that's good enough for me to get a start on making the issue. 

But, because I love making my life more complicated than it needs to be, I've decided I want to 'freshen up' Dear Anonymous. I need tougher covers (rather than green copy paper) for starters. I also think I'm going to do an intro as well rather than just the letter from me at the end. I was going through 1 and 2, and I realised that people might like some warning about the…

Digitizing Zines

Hey All!

I'm a student working on a feminist zine digitization project. I'm focusing on Riot Grrrl style zines but I'm interested in them all! I wanted to hear from some zinesters about their thoughts on digitization and zines from the past. 

Do you think you can read a scanned copy and get the same experience? 

Are there any zines you wish you could find again?

How useful is online community to zine culture?

Would you be interested in contributing zines,…
