LA ZINE FEST

zinecats:

Bad Bad Leroy Brown is lying on the zines I just cataloged for the Barnard Zine Library. What kind of crap librarian puts their zines on the floor for a cat to sit on?

We’re pretty staunchly dog people, but how did we not know about this blog all about zine-cat interactions? SHAMEFUL.

Quiet Riot (AKA The Shy Sober Kid Zine). Seven contributors give their thoughts and experiences about being sober within counterculture communities. A great read, regardless of your relationship with alcohol.

now available for your newsprint-lovin hands: issue #81 is in the store!

Radioactivity: Seals are washing up on the coast of California. The wake of the catastrophic events at Fukushima are still rippling through the Pacific. We’re watching protons decay, positrons emitting, the quark epoch finalizing. What’s to be done? Radioactivity may be the most articulate response to a question nobody was asking. What happens when you taken phenomenal talent, genuine love of a genre, precision, thoughtful restraint, eerily catchy, yet organic sounding harmonies, and infuse it into wax? You have one of the greatest records ever made. Period. Todd Taylor and Daryl Gussin talks with the alchemists responsible for this gold record (gold no matter how many they sell).

enjoy our multimedia-laced preview here!

This is out now! LAZFers Simon and Bianca have reviews inside and the Cassie J. Sneider column alone is worth picking up the issue. Get ‘em while you can!

“Think about it: Have you ever seen a cat driving a cruiser? Have you even once seen a cat with a badge? These animals want Friskies, not frisking.”
Dan Piepenbring on black-and-white zine “Cats Hate Cops.”

We met Research & Destroy New York City at Brooklyn Zine Fest and they were super-nice and gave us a copy of this zine because we can’t stop giving the ones we have away to friends because it’s amazing.

Wow - another zine fest in Mexico City! Zin Amigos takes place today - August 3rd

Wanted to make an impulsive trip of it, realized my passport’s been expired for seven months and there’s no plane ticket money in my couch cushions. :(

I’m starting a zine distro and I WANT YOUR WRITING!

bunkmatepoetry:

got a zine? thinking about making a zine? have some writing laying around waiting to be read? TALK TO ME.

I’m working towards starting a DIY distro/press for creative writing and art (you can interpret “art” however way you want) of course, nothing containing any sexist/racist/transphobic/queerphobic content or anything that promotes oppressive behavior.

if you are AT ALL interested in contributing please shoot me an email: alyssarorke@gmail.com
