Mental Health Zines

I'm a member of this group for a good reason. All people, mental illness or no, deal with feelings of alienation, loneliness, heartbreak, chaos, anxiety, and paranoia to a certain degree. I know--I'm definitely not mincing words here. Nonetheless when I'm lonely or down, it has often been mental health-related art that has transcended me from my problems. I honestly feel that when people laugh at others with mental illness, they don't even know what they're laughing about. Their laughter is… Continue

Jazz Quarterly #2

"The Best of Intentions Avow Anthology" is fucking incredible. Keith Rosson's short stories are profound, profane, pro-active and professional--not to mention entertaining and amusing as hell! This book is well worth the $12, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants something meaningful and yet fun to read.
