rock and roll camp for girls-your daughter can be the next mia zapata

alot of cats in the scene like to gloss over some of the more realistic,grittier aspects of whats going on,in an attempt to make zines,punk rock,the diy ethic and other slogan worthy crapola more palpable and accessable to middle class money.whether its to help suck up some grant money,or inflate thier self worth for market purposes,newcomers and old worn out hipsters alike are constantly sugar coating formerly dangerous,creative scenes in an attempt to make them palpable to honky hipsters… Continue

drug problems @ portland zine symposium

one subject that needs to be openly discussed this year is the problem of drugs at portland zine symposiums...namely,the problem of availability.thats why this year,in conjunction with big louie and johhny the torch,a drug table will be set up around the corner from the unpopular geek-fest.portably operating out of a beat up chevy,several varieties of toxic yet awesome chemicals and mind expanding psychedelics(or reasonable facsimilies therouve)will be offered for perusal or purchase.several… Continue

Rich People in Zines;KILL THEM

what were the first zines?fanzines as a phrase was used to describe home made college humor homages to Mad and Kurtzmans punch,to name a few.in the seventies,sci fi freaks also used the term to describe writing and illustration collections,usually with some comic industry news thrown in.small print runs and a personal feel are hallmarks of zines.jn the late seventies,early eighties,new life was given to the medium,with the advent of punk rock.Sniffin'Glue,a crappily drawn,thin mag set the… Continue

Straightedge-Americas Nazi Movement

being an honest,calm,well loved zine artist,i seldom,if ever,have a problem with anybody.people are always coming up to me on the street and hugging me.thats why when i found out that dreaded "straightedge" hoodlums were slowly showing thier evil faces,i decided to spring to action.straightedge,the thinly disguised american nazi movement,are creeping around surreptitiously inciting otherwise normal stoned people to violently and brutally assault poor defenseless cancer patients with thier hate… Continue

semiautomatic guns in zines

although theres been some incredible articles written in zines lately-i mean,who ever knew how tough it was for white people out there-but one thing that has never been mentioned in any of these great,amazingly god like zines of mass distribution-is semiautomatic guns,and thier place in the zine world.now,most zines are devoted to way more important issues facing the world-like the author,or thier opinion,or thier sexuality,or the author,or,sometimes a zinester(or,"loser")might write about… Continue

Biological Attacks at Zine Conventions

you dont have to be in a band,or some kind of crazy artist to make a zine,but you know,it really helps!alot of crazy shit has happened lately-a black president,right wing assassinations,mexicos drug war,unions getting smashed-the list goes on and on.it impacts all of us-unless your so greedy and self centered that you dont notice or care about these things.i guess if you can afford yourself a protective little middle class bubble,where the biggest problems are the ones facing you and your…

heroin in zines

you know,heroin is really attractive(secretly)to alot of young hipsta zine skank freaks you see working the corners at zine conventions.its sad to see heroin chic drift into every aspect of every counterculture.the beourgious thing to do would be to completely ignore the problem,and pretend it doesnt exist,just like we were conditioned to do from birth.honestly though,i think alot more people use heroin than anybody likes to admit.if you figure in other opiates like oxy's and vicodin,you really… Continue

drugs and zines

man,blogging drunk is bad news-but blogging drunk and on oxycodone,while smoking weed is worse!you dont know what the hell your saying.or,even worse,only you know what your saying,and it sounds like gibberish to everybody else.zines are counter culture,and so are drugs.therefore,it only makes sense that if you do a bunch of drugs,you will be able to make a better zine.right?hells no!i tried that,back when i was totally hopped up on goofballs,doing ten,twenty bucks worth of real and fake dope… Continue

copyright infringement,a.k.a.stealing-a zine""staple"

zine makers,possibly the most self righteous people on the planet,are always quick to jump down anybody and everybodys throat with incredibly vague,misdirected,elitest accusations of random bullshit,usually sexism,racism,homophobia,agoraphobia,eco-centrism,agiesm or animal cruelty.accusations of abuse,hatred of women,cats,barn owls,scenes,community,you name it.you cant just walk around todays modern ziney sceney saying crazy,harmful,strong worded shit,like,"my favorite color is red".that's like… Continue

Vt. blog Bibliography Redux;retro hetro in the metro

most people who read this blog are probably wondering why i would use a site about zines to tell a completely boring unrelated story,that doesnt even belong here.well,first off,it is related to zines,because for me that was the situation of early exposure to actual making of art and zines.but also,its an interesting experience that was slightly cool and unique in the fact that it happened a long time ago and in a forieghn country,so not everybody has experienced it.therefore its probably…

vermontster mash

there was a good side,and a bad side to vermont.the good side was the hippy dope growers and local artists who helped me out.the bad side was me.i was really negative,always bitching and spouting meaningless anti government rhetoric.my girlfriend was a high-maintenence rich girl with mental problems.we fought alot,and stole weed.we never worked,and fucked constantly.during the pot harvest we had encouraged gun fights.a car got blown up,and when everybody ran down to see it,the dope got ripped… Continue

vermont sucks

the first time i got the idea to do a zine was in vermont.i went up there with forrest "fire" macgwire,in 1980.klaus was a friend of his who lived in an old sugar house out in the mountains.he was into hardcore punk,like fear and shit.also though he really dug mail art.mail art was like some wierd art cult.everybody into it did like collage and wierd 3-d postcards,really pushing the envelope(get it?)when it came to what went through the mail-3 foot postcards with toy soldiers glued to them,for… Continue

trigger word:KILL

you know,zines and zine culture is so smug,self righteous and supportive and self congratulatory,to be honest,half the people out there whose zines i read,i want to stab them in the face.theres such a sickening double standard,and lack of passion and awareness-its fucking pathetic,really,and it shits on an artistic legacy-a shitty one,but nonetheless.it(zine culture)claims to be so open,and acts accordingly,but in reality,its been bought out by preppie chumps.one thing that really makes me puke… Continue

the BOYCOTT continues

well,this blog,possibly one of the best blogs on wmz,has a new mission.after much speculation and thought,i've decided really that,after close examination of my self promotional,sick twisted and fucked up comics and zines,the time has come to take action against me.that is why i am proposing a boycott of my own zine.there are several reasons nobody should ever buy my zines.honestly not that many people buy them anyway.but thats not enough-no one,anywhere should ever buy any comics or zines i…
