What do I do now?

Hello,

I wrote a zine based on my work in a psychiatric hospital.  It is a three-person play (sort-of).  It features one older patient counseling two younger patients as they navigate the mental health world, so to speak.  It's a large file with some artwork copied from the web.  It's 7.6 MB.

I am not sure where to send it.  Any suggestions out there?  I would just like other people to read it or use it on their psychiatric…

New Year, New Things

I'm giving this zine thing a try. So far, I've made two small zines, private editions, one for my husband, and one for myself. I feel exhilarated at the relative ease and success of my two attempts, but I also feel anxious and pressured to make something I'll actually be able/willing to trade with others.

That work is in progress, but it might take a while to distill the thoughts that have been buzzing around in my head for I don't know how long. It's frustrating to have to wait...…

Another year, another long list of yet to be written zine titles...

Hello. I haven't gone anywhere, not far at least. I am still writing, writing daily, and publishing nothing more than an occasional social media rant for fear of public negative saturation.. I will divulge more specifically in time, unless you're impatient, then snag my last issues of ILL UNILL LIL'ILL to see how far gone I was. Or rather, I would rather you didn't.

How I'd zined me previously, is not how I want to continue. In current circumstances it wouldn't make good reading…

Brief Update

Zine #3 hasn't even been worked on, though I have some ideas.  One thing I'm definitely covering is Santa Muerte, or Saint Death as she is called.  I love researching and writing but the Christmas season has left me drained and overworked due to the type of work I do (one of many reasons this time of year makes me grumble). 

I got some more ghost hunting gear and will soon be investigating a haunted mansion, and during spring break I will be investigating an abandoned haunted…

Musea Art Contest for the New Year (daze early)

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

Mop Top fans know that the Beatles may have gotten their name, from Buddy Holly and the Crickets. Buddy was a lot bigger in England than here.

This week's question is who did Buddy Holly get the name the Crickets from???

IS:

The Spiders, an R&B group of the 50's. I had no correct eligible answers. I just heard crickets on this one!

I don’t dumb down so please wise up. (And beware James Dean). Hear… Continue

Glitch Art

I'm going to teach myself glitch art, because it looks like something that's pretty cool. What's are you guys opinion on it? Since I can't draw, I can only, probably, do graphic art. But I'm using GIMP, which should be okay. I had a Photoshop program, but lost it, and have no idea how to reinstall it. Of course it's not the "expensive" one *wink wink*.

Sing to me a sad song

What does depression look like?

Confinement.

She wants to scream, to release – but release what?

Where does one locate the pain and grief that only seems to be coming from within?

The guarder is herself.

She paces the room, arguing with herself. There is part of her that wants to destroy the other and the part that wants the other to consume her entirely.

A distinct heaviness comes with suppressing her from consuming my soul, her soul. It’s a knot at…
