Make a New Year's Zine Resolution!

I hope you have had a great start to 2016. I can't believe it's 2016. I started this website in August of 2008. I'd like to invite you to become more involved in WMZ in the new year.

I see a lot of people come on here and then comment on how dead it is. And yeah, it can be. The weird thing is, I approve over about 50 people a month. We are now over 6,550 members.  So, where are you all? Why aren't you speaking up, showing us your zines and commenting on posts?  As my mom used…

Happy International Zine Month!

I love the list of activities for IZM that Alex and crew some up with, but I am always so busy making a zine for the PZS that I don't get to do much of the activities.

Today (day 3- Zine Appreciation Day) I bought some zines from Stranger Danger Distro.

Day 1 was to list ten things you like about zines.  Here is my list:

  1. You don't need a grant, a publisher or permission to make a…

Are you Ready for WMZ to change it's Appearance? Tell me your thoughts

So, a few years ago I tried to change the appearance of WMZ and it changed everyone else's personal profile pages. I freaked out and changed it back.

I realize this site has looked exactly the same since 2008. Do you like that or not like it?  if I change to a different older theme we can keep personal pages the same. But, If I do a new updated theme (which I assume are much better)  you'll lose your personal layouts.

Now is your time to give me your opinion. Do…

Read about the Zine and Punk Scene in Southeast Asia and Australia

This is the review I wrote on Good Reads for Dave Roche's new book If Nothing But the Sky

As a rule I am not a huge lover of travel books or zines. They often have too little personal observations and thought provoking thoughts and often become just a list of we met these people and then we went here and craziness ensued or we ate this and found this out of the way place aren't we amazing?

Dave Roche's modest book about his zine tour trips to Australia and Southeast…

MinI-Zine Review: These Here are Crazy Times #2

I always mean to write a bunch of zine reviews together and I never do, so I think I will do a series of mini zine reviews here.

The other night I read These Here are Crazy Times #2 by Sarah May.

Here is her We Make Zines profile, but there isn't too much on it. I think I got her zine from Ms Valerie…
