Hullo, We Make Zines.
In the mid 90s a few pals and I ran a zine from where we lived in the Scottish Borders, named Sun Zoom Spark
(after a Captain Beefheart song). We ended up getting it distributed throughout the uk. It was full of absurdist humour, trashy artwork and photography, bizarre stories, stuff about female sexuality + interviews with old time punkers like The Ramones & Jonathan Richman, the up 'n' coming Brit… Continue

Explore the dark side with Absent Cause
Underground cultures, hidden histories, feminist and queer sexualities, chosen families and radical politics; vampirism, the gothic, horror and the macabre; surviving abuse, coping with mental illness/dangerous gifts, self-harm and suicide.
The theme of the third issue of Absent Cause
zine is death, dying, and undeath.
Everybody dies. But in our underground and radical communities we… Continue

I just finished a zine. Its mainly art -drawings and scribbles with comments and musings by me. It's short tales of my experience as a black queer living in the world today. It's A5 and not too long, so good for those with short attention spans.
contact me if you'd like a copy -firstname.lastname@example.org
p.s I love… Continue

Portland, Oregon Zine happenings...
I just got back from a month long trip to the UK and France! I attended the London Zine Symposium, went on a mini UK zine tour, hung out with rad folks and then headed to France for the 20th birthday party of La Fanzinotheque! You can be sure that there will be a zine about my adventures! Check out photos and what not from my trip here: http://alexwrekk.wordpress.com

Many years ago I recorded my song, “AOL CAN GO AND TANK TOMORROW.
Seems they have. Or rather Time Warner has dumped AOL as announced today. Here’s some info and a link to my song.
As Variety Magazine writes, ”The merger with AOL was announced with great fanfare in early 2000 and closed a year later. It touched off a round of giant media mergers as other companies feared being left behind in a volatile media landscape. Time Warner changed its name to AOL Time… Continue

Philly Zine Fest is going strong, with a date set for our 2009 fest at the Rotunda in West Philly: Sunday September 20, 2009. Last year we had a great turnout, with distros and zinesters from across the mid Atlantic and Northeast showing up, as well as several workshops and cheap eats. We'll keep everyone posted with more details as they become available!

writing I added on back reads:
"When I was about 11 or 12 yeas old me and two mates put together this zine. It doesn't really follow any narrative and there is an obsession with the number 69, but it is quite an amusing read. There are a lot of references to our warped Kiwi childhood and the… Continue

Dirty Smut - inspired through my fine arts course. The content is basically arty porn-related or sexually inspired images. Its not really explicit at all, a little bit, maybe. I have been told it is "shocking... but a good shocking". I like that.
Some drawings, a little writing, photos of friends, all content is self-produced.… Continue

So, I was pleasantly surprise when I went to my local library-- Multnomah county's Hollywood
branch-- and found that they have started a zine exchange! Now, not only do they carry zines in many branches and offer a bunch of great zine info
online, but they also facilitate zine trades!! They had a box below the zine shelf full of zines for trade on the honor system, like many book-borrowing… Continue

Due to a death in my family and starting classes, I've had to delay the normal functions of GENEROUS. The Spring/Summer issue is going to have some empahsis on health but since this is the first time I'm going with a theme, other topics are gladly welcomed!
If you haven't read my previous posts, here's a briefing.
GENEROUS is a women-themed 'zine with a humorous yet informative edge. We poke fun at pop culture instead of being a victim of here-today, gone-tomorrow… Continue

It is finished. I spent the entire weekend putting it together. Damn I feel like I accomplished something for a change. I'm already starting another issue... the writing part anyway. And I'm working on an 8 page mini that will be nothing but doodling. I may send it along with other stuff as an extra.

I named the new zine Hazel Harper. I'll be putting it together this weekend.
That's all I have to say about that.

Whooooo hooooo!!! I can cross it off of my never-ending 'LIFE GOALS' list: I have published my first real zine.
Ya - i've done lots of those dinky ones to fill the boring summer days: reporting on the town's birthdays, giving reviews of the latest movie-release...nothing that packs any zest - nothing of this caliber. The FIRST INFINITE ZINE
was great - it was amazing - it was inspiring - it was even a little smudged from the Xerox… Continue

In a world of misses heres a 100 Plus HITS!
Have you had a chance to look at the latest print issue of Musea (#167 Mar.'09)? It's the big best-100-new-music-of-the-entire-world, music list issue. It's been getting a lot of notice from ... well all over the world. The London Symphony Orchestra sent me a nice e-mail, thank you - they made the list for their Youtube Symphony Idea, and so did a video by the Trons, an all machine combo from Australia. Plus much… Continue
