We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

The site has my profile hidden. I dunno why. It's not like I've said anything that is a secret.

But, I'll repost it here. If anybody wants to say "hi" or something, that's cool.

I had not really set out to create a zine. It just sort of happened that way. I was writing & recording some music, and considering how I want to release it. Then, I got to thinking about Compact Discs and how finding CD storage / carrying cases is getting increasingly difficult. No one makes them anymore, just CD wallets...ugh! What are people doing with their jewel cases? It seems like everyone takes better care of their comic books. So, I thought, "Why not package it in a comic book?" From there I gradually stumbled into zineworld. But, I wanted to make mine more like the mail-art packages I had made for my friends as a teenager, a big...weird..."box of stuff." But, everyone likes to browse. So, being able to skim through the pages is still important. I figured that I could glue an envelope to the back and stuff all of the goodies inside there. Is it still a zine? A book? An album? Something else? I don't know. I may continue to experiment with it as I go along. Content-wise there is really is no overall theme; personal stories, comix, activities, found objects, et cetera. It is an odd mix of miscellaneous contents. But, my music can be like that sometimes too. So, it all works out.
