crap you not

Okay. Assuming we're all human, all you gotta do to look "natural", is, uhm, not wear makeup.

There's probably a reason it's hard to rationalise, I'm sure, I'm thinking, hold…

Some uncommonly kind people asked me to answer some questions about zines. My answers are below.

How did you first become aware of zines and how did you get involved with making/ distributing them?
I'm probably one of the last generation who still learnt about new bands through fanzines : when I was at school I picked up flyers at gigs and used to get cassettes & fanzines through the post: crusty folk/punk and shoegaze indie psychedelic stuff, along with underground comics,…

Zines happening this summer! (a quick update)

Life happens when you're fighting your way through your BA, apparently, but it's summer now, so yay! I am currently working on the two sequels to The Summer, one that will certainly be published and one that I'm still on the fence about. I wrote a bit more about it here. Apart from that, I'll also be catching up on happenings in the zine world, because…

Biological basis for happiness?

Biological basis for happiness?

This is speculation, but it seems likely that happiness may be something naturally selected for.

For example we feel happy after we eat, after sex, around newborn babies and cute kids, etc.

That would support eating enough, procreating, and raising children.

International Zine Month: Day 3!

Today is Zine Distro Appreciation Day! If you're participating in International Zine Month, today is the day to show your support for the zine community by ordering from a distro.

Grab bags, anyone?!

I am thinking about opening up a small etsy shop with supply grab bags for zine making/pen palling/art journaling of different sizes. I just love putting together small collections of things like that!

They would include some stickers, pages of old books, magazine clippings, postcards, envelopes, patterned paper...

I am just wondering if anyone would be interested.

Sayings of Editor Art (another set)

Sayings of Editor Art (another set)

Don’t predict problems just to avoid new ideas; I can predict fixes to overcome them.

Broadway seem to be shifting away from legitimate theater and towards musical revues for tourists.

Don’t you think the other side knows that the quickest way to drain this country is to keep it in perpetual war – which drains it’s young people, resources, spirit, and standing in the world.

We are locked into thinking all solutions… Continue
