punks is hippies - the blog!

this website is awesome! it's 'sort of' a zine archive, mostly into punk zines.





they have lots of old zines, back from the 90s and 80s, but they also have some "contemporary" (aka 2000s) zines.



though i'm not that much into punk, it's amazing the work these guys are doing in scanning old zines and making them available online for… Continue

Zine Trades

This is my favourite way to distribute copies of my zine, and get copies of other peoples'. Since I signed up here in the summer, it's been going pretty well, but lately, I've noticed that I'm sending a lot of stuff out and not getting much back. Maybe it's just that it's getting cold out and no-one wants to leave their house.



I just sent out a few emails asking some people if they've received my zines, because I know that's how I used to keep track of trades - by sending back… Continue

Closing in on 42 and still doing it

Someone saw my recently-added page here and said, "Nick, I can't believe you're still doing this stuff." I took it as a compliment. I did my first fanzine in 1980 (I was 12 at the time), then had a ten-year run from 81-91 with a SINGLE title, took some time to get married and have kids, then did another print zine from 03-08 before going the way of the dreaded e-zine (although I must admit it's much easier, cheaper, and faster to do).



BUT---I'll always have the itch to do an… Continue

Some Newness

It's been a while since we've added any new zines, so many of us working on zines and never finishing them, but yesterday the new issue of Sugar and Heartstrings came out! We also restocked a couple, too. I've been out on tour for the last month, so I just started back to work today on some zines I was working on before I left. I included the rest of this month's update below for… Continue

Dear Zinesters your assistance is requested

Deep within the heart of Florida there is a dead town deemed unfit for the enlightened. smack dab in the bermuda triangle of southern cities lays Oakland, the unfortunate place I am from. The youth walk around like zombies, their ears dripping with brain matter because there is no substance to hold their brain cells together. We need your help in rectifying this dire situation. I want to distribute your zines, zines from everywhere in hopes of reviving our lost youth. We have a… Continue

looking for NEW zines!!

yep, you heard [read] me right, i'm looking for new zines... so far, most of the zines i got are from the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and i'm looking for something "different".



i'm mostly interested in zines from Japan (or any other Asian country) and from anywhere in Africa, since most of the things i get to read are with an occidental cultural/social view (ok, Australian zines are from the other side of the world - to an European - but still...). the only problem is they must be… Continue

new zines

I have been busy working / writing on a new zine since February. The content has been coming along nicely & I think I have enough stuff written up now, to put the issue out. So as soon as I have enough 'free time' I will be typing up & laying out the zine. This issue is going to be Rebel In Magenta #17 and its going to have a lot to do with turning 30 and what that did to me (my thoughts, changes in life, thinking back. etc). I'm really excited about this issue.

I also… Continue

on the cusp

i organize every monstress around a central monstrous theme and this time, i'm torn between two, "witchiness" and "ape attack!" i already have a bunch of reviews of movies where the horror is built around old women (bette davis' entire late career) but i'm having trouble with writing the other stuff. every issue also has chapters of a pulp fiction story in it and for "witchiness" i'd like to write something kind of agatha christie or dorothy sayers for the fiction. but writing in that style… Continue

video - DIY: How to Make a Zine

i found this cool video on YouTube, by SamProof, were he demonstrates how to make a zine (small format, about 7.5 cm by 10.5 cm, that's about 2"95 by 4"13) without using glue/staples/stitching/etc, just by a special but simple folding process!

Zine Trade Tips

following my last post, on SamProof's video tutorial, he talks about zine trading and he has had a great idea i feel i must share you (even) more people!



according to his own words, if you would like to have a copy of the zine but are short or out of money, you can send a drawing with a self-addressed stamped envelope and you will receive a copy of the zine back! also, your drawing might appear on the next issue of the zine!



i think this is a very good idea! usually, zine… Continue

first impressions on the We Make Zines community

well, i've spent the last hours browsing trough WMZ, searching for groups & blog/forum posts about stuff i'm interested in, updating my page, etc etc. i've already done some shopping thanks to some members i found! (that's because i'm addicted to shopping - online - for zines!)



i've started by adding 1 friend and joining a few groups and by now i've got 3 friends, and i'm starting to exchange nice messages with interesting and friendly people.
