My uncle, seeing my sudden interest in photography, gave me ANOTHER old-fashioned camera and it was the one he started off with! It takes batteries that are pretty hard to find, but otherwise works great! It's a canon, and even has a zoom lens (my other one doesn't, you just have to aim and shoot). It came with two lenses, tons of black and white film, and a camera bag, but I'm not sure the magnification of the lenses. This weekend I'm gonna look for things to take pictures of; I'll most likely… Continue

Wow, you won't believe how excited I am!!! On Friday, at a farmer's market that's kind of near my house (it sells some cool antiques) I was looking through a bunch of crates of junk some guy was selling, and I found an old-fashioned camera that actually uses film! It looked like it was in working condition so I asked him how much it was, and he sold it to me for only $3.00. So I took it home, and asked my mom if she had any film from her old camera. She gave me a roll of colour and a roll of… Continue

So yesterday I planned on working on the monster drawings I am going to submit to the coloring book issue of Lucky Creature Attacks
. And instead of drawing, I procrastinated by doing actual boring work. I unpacked this box that's been sitting in my bedroom since I moved over a year ago. It's not like I needed anything in that box, either. I think it's just that I want to draw something different and I want the finished… Continue

If you have multiple copies of a zine you would like to see distributed across Eastern Canada, please get in touch with us or with Ryan. Our email address is… 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

I spent most of my freetime for the past month scanning old zines of mine and posting the pics on my blog. sddzine.blogspot.com
its a personal history of my experience writing and reading zines. It was fun digging into my old boxes of mail, re-reading zines I hadn't read in 10 years (time goes by so goddamn fast) and thinking about how easy it is to loose touch with people. Anyway, if your interested check it out.

On April 25 my daughters and I attended Kids’ Comic Con 2009
at Bronx Community College. We were invited by Mike Weiss, whose daughter Jessica is co-producer of PB&J Comics and a fixture at East Coast zine fests.
This was a really interesting event. For one thing, I haunt some key NYC comic stores regularly, and never heard a thing about this (it was the third annual con). I’m not sure how it was built, but the turnout… Continue

I love starting things. I am a chronic beginner. Mostly this is restricted to my reading materials - I'd say at least 50% of the books on my shelf are half finished, or just started, or even almost entirely read but for some reason discarded a few chapters from the end. Zines are pretty great because the time it takes to read them is usually shorter than the time it takes for me to get sick of reading them or become interested in something else. It's a symptom of my generation: me and all the… Continue

The garage has been cleared out and the murals spray painted. It's a lovely day. I've been keeping myself busy with library stuff, and completely forgot about my school obligations! I need to work on my time management skills. With the murals done, all that is left now are the donations and the materials to build the shelves with. The library should be open in a month or two depending on how smoothly everything goes. I might need someone to volunteer during lending hours also, if that is… Continue

Yesterday I put up a month long exhibit in the lobby of the University of Washington Graduate Library (Suzzallo/Allen to locals). It was a bit tough aiming it at mostly people that might not know what a zine is as well as trying to add books to the collection about radical and zine cataloging encouraging librarians to collect zines in academic library collections (during March the ACRL conference, as well as the Zine Librarian Unconference, will be taking place in Seattle). It was also hard to… Continue

So, Marc and I recorded the very first Nobody Cares About Your Stupid Zine Podcast
yesterday! I did a bit of editing and I still need to do some more. I worry that the amazing theme song that Androo
wrote for us will outshine our podcast. Seriously, the song is amazine (yes, that's right AMAZINE) we played it a dozen times and danced around the dining room!
I hope to… Continue

This is from a questionnaire I had to answer from BOOKLYN Artists Alliance, a book art project in Brooklyn NY. I wrote the response last year, in February 2008. It's basically about why I bother to write my zine, Shotgun Seamstress.
Shotgun Seamstress is a zine for people more or less like myself: Black, queer,
feminist, artist, musician, outsider. It is a zine primarily for Black people who
do not fit into white people's stereotypes of what a Black person should be, and… Continue
