Tins!

Dear Readers,



Somewhere along the line, I began to collect tins- decorative tins, English tins, collectible tins, all kinds of tins. Living in an efficiency apartment, a small efficiency, they began to take up room, then more room, then THE room.



Lately I've been able to go through them, save favorites and put aside those I could part with. Turned out there were about 2-3 hundred in all sizes that I could part with - without taking away any favorites.



I placed… Continue

Quatros from July 2014

Quatros (7/14)
QUATROS

Door lit
from within

when you leave the Earth
the stars stop twinkling

star maps
voyage paths

white out stars
black ink space

What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning

Zinester's Response to Booker Prize List

Response to Booker Prize List



http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/23/booker-prize-2014_n_5613062.html?ir=Books



This is not a book prize, this is a prize for novels - a type of literature that a lot of writers are not interested in. The mainstream has decided to wipe history clean of its real recent literary golden age of zines. Not only were they the best writing, but they… Continue

"OH DARLIN"...ROLL" with my hands waving in the air!

Biological basis for happiness?

Biological basis for happiness?



This is speculation, but it seems likely that happiness may be something naturally selected for.

For example we feel happy after we eat, after sex, around newborn babies and cute kids, etc.

That would support eating enough, procreating, and raising children.

Sayings of Editor Art (another set)

Sayings of Editor Art (another set)



Don’t predict problems just to avoid new ideas; I can predict fixes to overcome them.



Broadway seem to be shifting away from legitimate theater and towards musical revues for tourists.



Don’t you think the other side knows that the quickest way to drain this country is to keep it in perpetual war – which drains it’s young people, resources, spirit, and standing in the world.



We are locked into thinking all solutions… Continue

Look to the future for the answer to this one: This English word is made of two foreign words that each means “yes”. Name it.



IS,

“Ouija”, as in a ouija board. Ouija is a combination of the French word for yes “Oui” and the German word for yes “Ya”.

I had no correct eligible answers – seems y’all were NoNo, the English word for “No” and the Spanish word for… Continue

First Quizzical of June

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:



Perhaps the best YEAR in rock was 1965 (I could vote for that). And perhaps the greatest rock song of that year was "Like A Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan. But which take of the fifteen of that song on June 16th, did they use for the record?



Let me set the scene June 15th. Bob has already recorded 9 takes of "Phantom Engineer", and 6 of "Sitting on the Barbed Wire Fence." Now he begins to work on "Like a… Continue

Love Poems (4)

FOUR LOVE POEMS

had I
not been in love
I would have passed
the flowers by

.

the Lord
has a sword
and the Lady
a baby

..

Love is only pain and sorrow
yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
One door in and no way out.
Only pain to sing about

...

the Match
met the Candle ...
true love!
