my first ever zine review from dan murphy at syndicated zine reviews

"I don't have piercings or tattoos, nor do I plan on getting any in the near or distant future, still I found this zine quite interesting and informative. Stacy really knows her stuff and has produced a thorough and incredibly useful zine about caring for tattoos and piercings so that you don't end up regretting your decision or cursing your luck when things go wrong. She starts by explaining the healing process and then goes into detail about various products and nutrients that are useful…

does anyone collect vintage zines?

i've found a few sites that sell zines from the 60's all the way to the mid 90's. some are quite expensive (up to $150) while others are rather reasonably priced ($15-25).

does anyone here collect/buy vintage zines?

where do you get them?

Zine Libraries (sharing information and ideas)

I love libraries (or any kind of collection, really) so naturally, i love zine libraries.

For me, zines are about sharing information and ideas within a community (if not a global community), and there is no better community for sharing information and ideas than a library. And better yet, I think the thing i I love most about libraries is that it goes with the principal that people are naturally good, and will return the books, so they're free for anyone to use.

the problem with infozines (so it seems) and the diy dilemma

i've recently been picked up by the always fabulous, ms valerie park zine distro and will shortly be sending off 10 copies to bird in the hand distro, and a 8 copies to mimizine distro (all for trade, which i love!), so needless to say, i'm pleased with the response to my zine so far.

however, i've recently been informed by another distro that they will not be carrying my work because it is health related and gives health related information. i'm ok with this and i'm not complaining… Continue

waiting is the hardest part....

so right now i'm waiting on a bunch of distros to get back to me regarding carrying my zine, and i'm waiting on a bunch of people, libraries and distros to email me back regarding trades, cataloging, and distribution.


i know that the mail can take a while, and then once they're finally recieved it takes a while for some people to get back to you cuz they have other stuff piling up around them and are a bit too busy right now to respond.

i'm not complaining. i get that…

i'm hoping to put together a comp zine about women and the use of marijuana. its not a drug-war propaganda thing, its just about women who use/enjoy/have experience with marijuana. i'm hoping to cover politics and legality issues, interviews with women related to the marijuana industry, media portrayals of women and drugs, recipes and crafts, gardening, marijuana and spirituality, and of course, artwork.

if this sounds like something you'd be interested in, give me a… Continue
