A THOUGHT: The act of thinking; the exercise of the mind in any of its higher forms; reflection; cogitation. "All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him,… Continue

Hey! So I still have some issue #1s left. Issue #2 was finished in late June and I have been pushing that one since then. I'm mega stoked on it because it's longer, has more reviews and interviews, etc...but I also got to do something I've always wanted to do and create a compilation CD. It was fun talking to different bands and record labels and getting their written consent to use music and stuff. I haven't sold that many yet, as I am trying to think of new and innovative/creative ways to get… Continue

“The Meadow” has been written in a very extraordinary way. For example, there was never any intention to bring the story into manuscript format. It was only after my encounter with Elfreda that it became a reality and, between us, we prized the idea out of my head and onto a hard drive. Even when we began writing the story, there was never an outline laid out for the whole thing. Outlines were only prepared for each chapter as we took them step by step.
I remember Elfreda… Continue

Fellow zinester Iris J. Arnesen, editor of "The Opera Glass" has just announced the release of a new major work on Puccini's operas titled "The Romantic World of Puccini: A New Critical Appraisal of the Operas" ($45 from publisher McFarland & Company).
It's always a treat for me, when zinesters I know and trade with, get published. Iris's book is now available for pre order at Amazon Books and I'm sure it'll be widely available soon.

I have now been delging into the new world of zine-making for a good couple of months now, but my very first Zine Fair was the Wollongong City Gallery Zine Fair, held last weekend in the Grand Legal Ballroom..er, room of Wollongong Art Gallery.
It is very possible that the room that the Zine Fair was held in is not called The Grand Legal Ballroom room...but it should be. It has very nice polished wooden floors, suitable for some good ol' pointed toes, and then strangely it has some… Continue

Listen. Can I share something with you all? Can I tell you something for real? I really love fires man! Not in a weirdo pyromaniac kind of way you understand, but in a simple hanging out around a fire pit kind of way. I love the sound burning wood makes. The crackle and popping and gentle rhythmic sway of the airwaves. I love the colours that dance and flicker and lick the air. I love the warmth it spreads. Not only externally but internally as well.
I have had a fire pit in my… Continue
