How I Make My Zine

I'm going to write a blog on how I personally make my zine-not that other people have to do thing's my way.Alot of zines I see look great just the way they are.Sort of like the scrapbook class at Collage on Alberta Street.I'm glad I can enter a world where homelessness,racism,social causes,and poverty don't exist-zine world.A world where the right's of nose ring wearing college kid's take precedent over massacres in Darfur.I'm glad the important art,like a page of an engraving from an…

Leah Ryan

I remember Leah from way the fuck back.She was the coolest girl I had ever met at the time.Our parent's were dating,and they stuck us kid's together because we was both 13 year old misfit's.We hit it off,and hung out together some that fall.Her dad,who she hates,had a house down by the lake.Me and her discovered David Bowie's Diamond Dog's together.We played the fuck out of it,listening to Rebel Rebel 400 thousand million times.She was definitely more sophisticated than me,and I was…

Occupy,The Clash,Kill Anarfuck's

Anarchist zines are usually pretty generic.Theres a lot of extremist rhetoric,some horribly copied graphic's,usually some painfully patronizing out of touch pandering to ethnic group's they are in awe of.I don't personally practice politic's anymore,except when I vote,but I'm smart enough to know that most anarchist's are like thier zines-big on talk,but lax on action,or result's.That's why,although I have mixed feeling's about it,it's cool to see the Occupy movement out there,getting pepper…

California Job Box Memories

Alot of cat's say I'm old school,but really,I'm just old.But I feel it's a good idea to relate my experiences that pertain to printing and art and shit,for fucking posterity,the record,zines of the future,and my primary counselor.I've alway's been enamored with printing.Comic's and printed art were all I ever wanted to look at.Marvel Comic's,the Whole Earth Catalog,and underground comic's were all I ever read during my youth as a rotten hippy child.I studied Zap and S.Clay Wilson,and even…

Capitalism vs. Creativity

I figure when your putting out a zine,you can at best hope to cover your cost's,and that's about it.You might be able to make a little change to cover the time you spent putting it together,but probably only if you price it really high.That will probably hinder distribution,so your going to end up with the same amount of a different problem.You could get it printed at a real print shop,but you'd have to print up ton's of copies and spend a bunch of money,which there is a slight possibility…

White Boy's Club Breakout

I was watching Taxi Driver the other day-I seen that flick more times than John Hinkley Jr.-and it really made me miss the Lower East Side.Martin Scorcese filmed that over on 10th street,by 3rd Avenue.Harvey Kietel look's like he's about 21 in it.That flick,to me,is punk as fuck.That's just my opinion,but I swear it was the first mohawk.Punk is definitely a matter of opinion.What some people might think is punk,other's might think is just bullshit.You can't really define it.Afro punk was a…

Why DeviantArt Should Be Destroyed

There's this big book on zines at the Library (Powell's),and it's got all the cover's of all these zines from,like,1910 and shit,with stupid description's written next to them.It's a pretty awesome book though,mostly because it has pictures of all the cover's of Sniffin' Glue.That's probably the first zine ever,really.That and PUNK,with all the John Holstrom art and shit.It's pretty extensive,with some 70's zines,like sci-fi zines and shit like you used to get at comic convention's back…

Zine Regret's

As all you fan's of independant publishing out there know,there's some way out,wacky,interesting and fresh talent when it comes to Zines,Zine-making,Underground Zine lab's,Zine store's,Zine eyeglasses,Zine haz-mat safety suit's,and everything even remotely connected to Zines in any way,shape,or form.Zine bar's,Zine police,Zine fashion show's,Zine wear and Zine designer drug's are becoming more popular than oral sex lately.It seem's you cant walk two fucking feet without running into some…

Zine Review's:Gimme a Fucking Break

It's not too often I get reviewed.I send free zines out all the time,to all the zine reviewer's,but the fucking stuck up assholes don't say shit.I've given up.It's a waste of time.All they do is review their friend's shit,or something.But I did get a chance to put a 3 pager into Bird Hurdler (such a play on word's!),forcing people to see my shitty comic's,by putting them in between other peoples good comic's.So,of course I used the opportunity to get revenge on the world by subjecting the…
