More than a blog, less than a zine...

Brief thoughts, clever quotes, general love notes to the internet.

Ciara Xyerra : extortion is so punk rock

At least once or twice a month I have a discussion with someone new to the zine community about why I chose not to support Microcosm Publishing. Here is Ciara’s blog post about the cancellation of the Microcosm-related “Bikes and Dinner” event in Lawrence, KS. 

If anybody thinks the current lolsuit affecting the lives of my friends (& indirectly me/my career) is a brand new and exciting way of Microcosm Publishing fucking people over, you’re wrong!

I love the sweet, delicious smell of long-distance bullying and intimidation in the morning. Makes me feel all fuzzy inside. It has a certain kind of nostalgia to it, like that time my mom called up and screamed at me for three hours about how I’m a heroin-addicted slut that nobody will ever love. Ahhhhh, childhood.

Agreed. Dude is the worst - history of abuse and manipulation, failed accountability, and exploitative personal and business relationships with women. To say nothing of the shit they tacked onto Portland buttonworks. Ugh ugh ugh.

This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.

if you don’t think this is fucking rad then get out of my face


So cool

New in the Pioneers Press catalog! Tazewell’s Favorite Eccentric #16

wearepioneerspress:

It’s the final issue of Sarah Rose’s excellent Tazewell’s Favorite Eccentric zine. A good companion piece to Sarah’s outstanding memoir, Everybody Else’s Girl, issue 16 is about friendship and shared past, addiction and pain. A damn fine read. We’re sad to see this one go but we know (for a fact!) that Sarah has some wonderful new stuff in store for us to read and we can’t wait to see it all get born!

You should know better, Chris Clavin.

Well John Hinckley Jr. might have been a little crazy
But there ain’t nothing wrong with trying to kill the president
Specially when that president’s Ronald Reagan, he almost killed us all

John Hinckley Jr. might have been a little crazy
For getting a little obsessed with Jodie Foster
But how…

There is no character I empathise with quite as much as I do with The Great Gonzo.

Did we mention that our copies of Everybody Else’s Girl are signed and that each one comes with a personal message from the author? TRUE!
