*blows away cobwebs*
its been a while. i have the zine bug again but yes, life is killing my creative spirit. i might be moving to west philly soon, i'd been living in upper darby for a couple of years - yes, i escaped norristown! - my cat and i have been together for 3 years and i still have two jobs.
hopefully when i move again i will have some time to start researching my food zine idea...lots of taste testing has to happen. and maybe just maybe i can… Continue

first off i have an idea...probably not an original idea but i was thinking about doing a comp zine about people in their 30s-40s-50s+ still involved with music or art subcultures... (Punk, Raver, Goth, Hip-Hop). i'll be 35 in oh seven days or so and i've been in and around the goth scene for...a long time.
Being in my mid 30s is kinda disconcerting... i cant be the only one going through a Scene-Life Crisis? i spent so many years building who i was… Continue

for the first time in eight years i will not be at the Rotunda with a stack full of xeroxed goodness. this does make me sad BUT i have a good reason, a dear friend of mine will be getting married in central PA on sunday and i cannot miss this for the world! again, i do send my regrets that i cant hang out with my zinester peeps and to meet new people and read new stuff!
also, due to the fact that i have a crap job that makes no money to travel and no vacation time left… Continue

due to my life being consumed with both mundane (work, medical, adult-type crapola) and sundry (hello kitty online beta testing, Russell Brand media consumption and lustful obsession) - i have NO new material for my table at the Philly Zine Fest this coming sunday. i will have plenty of the Annus Horribilis that was published late last year and as i owe my contributors copies for over a year...i should have at least the time to get THAT out of the way.
if you've… Continue

after much frustration with myself, with the nature of paper and tape, and with kinkos employees...my newest zine is DONE. it was received warmly at the philly zine fest, that rocked thanks to Casey and the Philly Zine Fest volunteers and committee!
so begins the whole distro-hunting, review zine submitting, livejournal crossposting type thing..but i gotta wait till payday to get the copies out to my fellow contributors.
