a place for zinesters - writers and readers
2012 Justseeds/Eberhardt Organizer (Planner) ($8)- This gorgeous little planner is a perennial favorite. With beautiful art from the Justseeds arts collective and printed by the always-amazing Eberhardt Press, it serves as a great alternative to the more-commonly seen Slingshots or Moleskines.
I Love Bad Movies #2 (Zine) ($5)- This hilarious issue deals with love, sex, and relationships in movies. From obsessive amputation love to dorky buddy movie love, all kinds of love gets reviewed here.
I Love Bad Movies #3 (Zine) ($5)- This issue takes a look at the future. Or, rather, how a large handful of semi-ridiculous movies view the future. The results make for some pretty great reading.
I Love Bad Movies #4 (Zine) ($5)- This issue is ridiculously good. This time around, they review movies that are meant for, or star, children, but should perhaps never be watched by children. With a powerhouse of amazing contributors (including two writers from The Daily Show!), this is a zine that can be enjoyed by people within and outside the zine community.
N'Drea: One Woman's Fight to Die Her Own Way (Book) ($4)- "a powerful condemnation of the medical industry, a passionate analysis of the society of the commodity and its destruction of the human individual, and a personal expression of one woman’s decision to live her life fully and to die on her own terms among those she loved."
Nuts #1 (Zine) ($1)- Interviews with H.P.P. and Gun Outfit, a scene report, photos.
Nuts #2 (Zine) ($1.50)- Interviews with Sex Vid and Broken Strings, lots of cool photos, “The American Work Experience” by Carrie Keith, secret lake, experience through vision.
Nuts #3 (Zine) ($1)- This issue has lot of art and photography, band pin-ups, a Milk Music interview, Olympia restaurant reviews from Judd Taylor.
Nuts #4 (Zine) ($1.50)- Interviews with Nodzzz, Hell Woman, White Boss, and Mae Kessler & Sam Kates-Goldman (on dance performance!). A history lesson from Tobi Vail, reviews, art, photos, more.
Nuts #5 (Zine) ($1.50)- This is the travel issue, getting us out of the Olympia scene and into the U.S. of A. Interviews with Brilliant Colors, St. Dad, Justin Clifford Rhody, and The Spits. Art, photography, comics, Captain America’s balls (ew).
Nuts #7 (Zine) ($2)- Musicians interview their parents on their impression of the Women’s Movement (awesome), art, photography, comics, more.
Reclaiming Our Ancient Wisdom: Herbal Abortion Procedure and Practi...- “Reclaiming Our Ancient Wisdom is a guide for practiced herbalists and midwives to better serve the women of their communities."
Shotgun Seamstress #6 (Zine) ($3)- The brand new and (gasp!) LAST issue of Shotgun Seamstress is here and is so good.
Old! (But back!)
Woman on Bike Notepad (Blank Book) ($3)

*We have been busy busy busy and the postal service has been slow slow slow. Seriously. There is something amiss. Many apologies for those who have had abnormal wait times, we promise, nothing has changed on our end.
*Nicki Sabalu (editor of DIY or Don't We, among many other things) started off her new video series of zinesters doing readings by filming our own Joshua James reading from Basic Paper Airplane. It's to eventually air on TCTV, but for now can be seen over on her Vimeo.
*We fixed a few things on our website and having been blogging more than we have ever blogged over on (bet you'll never guess) our blog. Check it out.
*All issues of Paper Radio and Signals are now half off! Editor DJ Frederick asked us to make way for issue #8, so these interesting examinations of radio culture are now even more affordable.
*Submission Call! The ever-amazing Jordan O' Jordan is putting together a zine of fun things to do around the U.S.- a travel guide for touring musicians and wanderers, perhaps? More details over here.
*Local Olympia zine, 23, is doing an issue about porn. They're doing a survey for it and if you're interested in participating, go here.
*Craven Rock (of the Eaves of Ass zine) got an essay about almost going on the Jerry Springer Show published in The Monarch Review recently.
*The one-and-only DJ Rupture made the cover (!) of The Wire.
*Poppet got a feature on the British music blog, The Devil Has the Best Tuna.
*Prince is coming to the Tacoma Dome in December!
*East Bay Zine Fest is coming up in a couple weeks. If you're in the area, go! And please say hi to our dear friend Gina Sarti (author of Shit's Fucked) who will be tabling with the collective bakery she's a part of.
*Olympia's Milk Music got interviewed on Pitchfork.
*And, finally, the Olympia Film Festival is in full effect right now and it is so good. Go, won't you?
Until next month,
