The Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church In Kentucky Votes against interracial couples...after a couple is to a sing a duet to their congregation.

I know the iphone Siri thing has been played to death, but...Blogger Jill asks siri some more questions to a hilarious and sad result. Excerpt:

Jill: My girlfriend is pregnant. What do I do?
Siri: First, do no harm.

Jill: I want my pussy eaten.
Siri: I have found eleven pet stores in your area.

The Dreary Argument about WHO IS A SEX WORKER?

Sex workers pushing for a trade union in Argentina. YEAH!

Oh coleen!

Oh, I am drunk on daydreams of you
beyond bible pages of crystals and crosses, babies and bathwater
windows and wonder-falls
we will greet a day together soon

Pink clad Messengers / Onward Hardline Soliders Split

PO Box 11703 Eugene, OR 97440

Attention to whomever sent me this hardline/queer positive/joke/sarcastic from 2000 or what have you..Boom, thank you. I started reading and fell quite into a trap of retro an-snark-ism. So i got bored and fucked my friend instead. We made out for a long time, dry humped, petted me with his hand, and I went down on him for a while before he asked if he could get inside my panties and i complied, happy to forget this awfully laid out zine with near impossible to read typography. He fucked me from the back and it was GREAT! The kind of sex that makes you want to take the day off work and stop reviewing zines (from ten years ago) so your new sweetheart can come over and do you hard on the pile of zines you should be reviewing!!! I don't care if this shit got bent! RECOMMENDED!

A fabulous zine from a rad, hair queer on Electrolysis, being bearded and sexuality/attraction/orientation. I really enjoyed their journey from guilty and conditioned to energized and owning of their sexuality. As a hairy person myself (who unabashedly admits to shaving facial hair regularly) it feels great to read accounts like these - smart, eloquent and honest.

"I started to postpone my lazer appointments although i was still shaving every day, in between appointments you can't pluck or wax and the first time i put a razor to my face I felt a bit like what i imagine a teenage boy feels like her he starts to shave his face."

Unique zine about pen palling in the 1980s when the berlin wall was still intact! Sweet Canadian boyhood with interesting charts of everyone he ever wrote. One pen pal wanted ad in a Czech youth magazine raked in over 250 letters!
"as excited as i was to finally correspond with someone from australia, my self designated favourite country, landing a pen pal on the other side of the Iron curtain became my next target. The whole idealogical Us Vs. Them, Capitalism Vs. Communism divide during the cold war made it impossible to find a pen pal agency with eastern european names"

A couple more zine reviews.

Arts and Crafts Revolution #3
I thought this would just be a how to book of knitting or shellacking breakfast foods or what have you , but it's actually a smart look at illustration and the history of outsider art. The history part is my favourite (Who would have thought..!) with short descriptions of inspiring artists such as Henry Darger and Maude Lewis, folks that prove art is for everyone. Colour theory, Perspective, photography, and some cute additions like a pattern for a giraffe shaped scissor case and group drawing games. Recommended.

Bitch King

A collage laden zine with some prose and an article on Queer Suicide and systematic violence used for social control. word. "Violence is so weaved into the fabric of our lives so much that we rarely question the roots of political violence."

The Anarchist Queer Person of Color
No clue where you can get this, but it is circulating, i belie
ve from riverside california.
while the layout is sloppy to say best, i liked this zine - it includes profiles of queer anarchists of color, Lucy Parson, Luisa Capetillo, Lorenzo Kom'boa Ervin, and Ricardo Flores Magon.

Town and Country

Kinoko & Cameron Hawkeye
Another smart comic and sketch collection from Kinoko, this time collaborating with the talented Cameron Hawkeye. Whimsy and existential pain meet a very hungry hand-bird that wants nachos. Full colour pullout but don't pull it out it will fuck up your comic book. It's nice to see them come together in this lush zine. "we relaxed today. It was not easy. There is heaviness weighing in on our fear. knowing despite all i do."

A couple of zine reviews

Sapira Cheuk

A fold out zine illustrating some curvy forms surrounded by some graphic POP Lines. Just something to take a quick look at.

By the River Side
Cut and paste, cute zine from Riverside CA. Facts about cats (Did you know all kittens are born with blue eyes?) a little prose, some photography, a brief piece on body love, herbal hair cleaning recipe. Seems like a younger person did it, Enjoyable layout.

While I'm away I'll write home every day
Apparently made by a teenage girl that loves her boyfriend, hopefully this was for her boyfriend? a list of love weekend..."take a shower, see a shower, watch a sweet movie, take photos, picnic w/ cosmo, do/make something nice for our parents, make a list of why we love each other, eat pizza, overlook, fairmount park, lots of kissing, make a good breakfast together, start a puzzle, finish a puzzle, romantic dinner, fireworks, craft, play dress up..."
and there are photos of the happy couple. I guess I'm just bitter because i used to feel like this with my ex girlfriend and now I think love is dumb half the time.

Ilse Content out today, and also, Summertime #4

Not that long awaited because she is motivated, Alexis Wolf's Ilse Content #10 is out! It's all about home.

Summertime #4
Last night I read the fourth and final Installment if Seattle Based artist and Author Gina Sicilliano's graphic novel "Summertime". The characters in her beautiful sketched pen and ink pieces are given such emotion in their faces; dissapointment, heartache, dissatisfaction; but ocassionally the look of love, and glimpses of excitement. #4 delves into the ending struggle with a friend/lover and addiction. Don't read if you're in the thick of heartache or friend loss, but everyone else please do so! Reccomended.

And also, a link to Tart Magazine's blog. A truer sentiment has never existed.

Luxury and illness. glug glug glug

Luxury during illness:
small fluffy white comfort
drinking silver particles suspended in water like it's no thing
huffing rose oil

Link roundup, Femme Appreciation, and praise for a zine.

Well, Well, Well. I've got a dreaded portland summer cold, but i'm happy as an oyster creating a pearl on the kitsap penninsula! (They only do it because they are uncomfortable, to be honest.) My best friend Quinn the Dog is here, my mom is here, i'm lung deep in tinctures and tea. I spent my day reading news and watching ever guilty television. Our chickens have started laying eggs near the fence, and there truly is nothing like a fresh egg!

So, to gush over a zine, it is called Quantify, it is from 2000 and it is written by a critical, snappy queer person of color named Lauren. The critical and snappy are discussed without apology, and I appreciate it - calling out racist graphic design and talking about the "colour of Violence" conference. All pieces, from community part Vs. Whole to identity, to a comic collage on change are well fleshed out. Have no clue where you can get this now. Whoops, good luck ya'll!

Ah, just take a gander at all those dudes signing that sweet sweet paper!

These ladies are AWESOME.

Zine reviews!

Ambrosial cut and paste zine on hard lost love in the Australian outback while travelling.

"for two full days i didn't see a single person and when I emerged at the top of King's Canyon I made a solemn vow not to get bitter, not let this poison my heart's propensity to love and be loved"

Czech One two
1022 Arthur Ct. Apt #217
Salisbury, MD 21804
A zine about a fellow named Daniel's time working on an organic farm, making it very clear that he had little fun or romance with the work. It Sounds like they worked a pretty bad farm, but the note with the zine said that he's working a farm with better results. Good! Has some cute comics and nice illustrations scattered through out.

Asexy ...or something like that
A zine on Mage's asexuality, romantic attractions...or something like that, yes indeed. Discusses adopting a lesbian identity but being sexually attracted to men, and discovering the Asexual Visiblity and Education Network. A quick read, I think this zine may have been part of a Portland State University Class on Feminism and Zines.

Food Magic!
First, the photo on the front is a lady snake charming weenies on a string. You know it's going to be good. Doodles and recipes for basil coctails, mulled wine, arugala pesto, brazil nut "cheese", walnut pate, Soups, salads, stir fries, and even a liver tonic! Sure there are tons of vegan cookzines, but I assure you the food (and librations!) in this one shine.

Not Pokemon Comics (sorry)
Letters to an Absent Father
Mare Odomo is adorable from start to end, in person and on paper. His comics "Letters to an absent father" feature Ash Ketchum of the pokemon fame writing his father about his life, asking questions of the man that never appears in the series, games, or comics. "Dear Dad, On a the sea, I watched my butterfree...& his mate...Disappear...into the sunset. Do you ever miss mom? Love, Ash"
Only the sweetest of hearts could make this.
His more personal comics, NOT POKEMON COMICS (SorrY) are hand sketched, everything from park sketches, ladies and pizza. Reccomended!

Aunt Anna's
Guide to Grooming
Rules for Prim and Proper Little Ladies
Simple and nice encouraging little girls to eat world cusine, conquer their fears, and express their opinions. "Some little girls are sweet. Other little girls are rough. Most girls, However, are a combination of both and this makes them much more interesting." Said well Aunt Anna!
The grooming guide is great too. "Girls should never shave, It takes up too much of their precious time." and "Or just don't comb your hair. This is also okay. It makes you look wild and free."

How to Host a House Show
The Laundry Chute
728 E. Locust St
Milwaukee, WI 53212
Pink and black blockprinted cover in this nice mini zine, covers communication, neighbour relations, promotion and setting up. If you've never thought about having a house show this is a ncie little introduction.

Kitchen Conniption
Obtained at Floating World Comics
In this time of well illustrated food zines, I LOVE Vanessa's art! Doodles of food, ladies cooking, write ups of her favourite food blogs, drink tips, honey beer bread and more. Her art sort of reminds me of Julie Doucet. Reccomended!

Alco Beat #6
Hilarious zine by two folks from bowling green in the late 90's or early 2000. Life updates that really get me laughing - A story about going to a garage sale and buying a very powerful bug zapper, reality shows, term paper titles, a piece on Punk rock in china, and reviews of course. This zine is old and I'll bet you can't get it anywhere. And I think I reviewed it a few years ago.

Andy Friendly - Full Speed Ahead
This zine is mostly about travelling, but also bad ideas executed in houses with a fresh voice. Keeps to the interesting things and ditches the chafe. Includes a eally rad piece on working with bike brakes - he seems to be very bright and have a good way of describing the system to folks. Seems like a fun rowdy kid.

solid gold punk rock

As I sit here in my basement room listening to Portland punk paramours Tiny Knives practice, (well, try to tune out with headphones...It is practice after all!) I reflect on all the great punk music i've been lucky to listen to and experience at house shows across the northwest this last week.Let's reflect. You may be thinking "Hmm... letters with mixtapes? What the punk? Who is this girl taking over the blog?" Yeah, my name is Danielle Warhola and I run another blog, Resume Of Charm where most of this stuff is going to be crossposted.

Sunday, we had a great basement blowout with pasta salad, a huge white strawberry whipped cream cake and an apple pie the size of a pillow. We also had Shark Pact, Members of Hail Seizures' Keyboard and drum outfit play, suitable for dancing or "shaking your butt" and bringing thoughtfully penned songs about harm reduction, service industry work, cities and wilderness. I have no clue if there is a way to obtain their 2010 tape album "Ditches" aside from a show but an address to contact them at is PO Box 913 Olympia, WA 98507
They are on Tour with the Hail Seizures, and the tour dates for that can be found here.

Two days later at the well loved portland house fucketts, was a total gem of a show - Sleep Spindle, Agatha, My Parade and Diver . Let's start there. All people of colour, all political butt shaking for everyone involved. Mathy post rock drumming, power vocals, and pitchy keyboard organ sounds. Check out their Album here.
Agatha. Palatably poppy queer hardcore (that is saying a lot, because I am fucking sick of hardcore until further notice!) with incensed lyrics from a powerful frontperson (plus sick group vocs), dreaming up the drive for actual change in a kierarchal world and assessing identity. Listen to + order their EP at Rumbletowne records. (Rumbletown also has other quality bands Doomhawk, lightnin' round, Shorebirds, and Hooky that remind me of some of the greatest shows I ever experienced living in seattle. Being 19 was really, really exciting.)
They played with Sleep Spindle, Portland all girl goodness. I don't know if they have internet contact.

In the process of writing this post, I plugged the speakers into my bedroom for the first time in a year - going to go through the rumbletowne records backcatalog, turn it up and get nostalgic. Enjoy.


The city of portland is now officially rocking trans inclusive healthcare on a unanimous vote.


Zine lovespell

I received Nathan Carter's "Will you marry me?" single page folded treasure at zine symposium 2008, while in the midst of a golden lovespell with a beautiful towheaded colt with a crack in his head, where the happiness could seep out if it all became too much. These adorable letters, wondrous drawings and entries from a life were held very precious to us, and we mimicked the style for our own zine "you are very deer to me". Nathan has lots of beautiful books available on his etsy. Where this story climaxes; Nathan also makes lushly layered piano and banjo music, under the name Purrbot. Take a listen to this single "Share the good"!

fiercely golden

There are places people built that will make one of their own blush, shed tears down fleshy mountain spurs protecting the castles of human lip, the most royal of the features and smile sheepishly out of windows, hoping to meet another kind beast receptive to
this location based songbirding. There are damp bedrooms where girls lay laden in crystals created in torrid plastic mines desperately and dreaming and holding so, so safe. There are places between the home and this place where sister Socrates sneaks around in tight summer plumage to drink down nectar, random and abandoned and moving seventy-five mile long steps. Safe with strangers, so safe. There is water of three sides, against windows but not pouring in- fresh, salt or of the famous low hope slough, endings we desire no more than more fiercely golden things; scotch broom riddling these prairies.

And check out this cutie, singing about heteropatriarchial constructs and virginity.

A Night at Theoria

Well, I was going to stay in tonight. After last night's Tender Loving Empire's birthday blowout/bathroom stall boozing, glitter throwing, mooning the photobooth and butt shaking to the likes of Jared mees + The grown children and Typhoon...i thought i may just need a break.
A friend came by today and mentioned he was playing a show at a gallery and worshop space called Theoria on Killingsworth and interstate. I was intrigued and in the area so after running errands, i decided to swing by. There was a fanciful fort built next to the overpass, and in the gallery itself a slew of curiosities, art, herbs really nice treats and lots of mint kava water from the bar. The first performance was by Robby Kraft, teacher of Sacred Geometry and instrument creator. He presented a wonderful instrument akin to a hand made glass xylophone-theramin-tiny machine. I don't know! It was amazing!
Also, these fellows i know did a hauntingly lovely ambient tape/feedback noise performance. pretty noise show soon!

the sadness of practicing magic without nature

Hello deers, today has been a trying one.Welcome to my melodramatic post. My teeth of wisdom are trying to scare my milkteeth from their innocent cavern, my fox may have to run in another den and my eyewells are dry from crying, listening to the soft whispering drum and bass song my former love and I shared, and trying to believe magic and whimsy will occur once again. Onto brighter fields, i've been ordering lots of zines and writing letters- it feels nice to actively participate in the widespread writing and zinemaking community. Today I went to the post office and got some space stamps, mercury project and Messenger Mission themed. Watch your mailboxes fine foxes.

First off, I recently found a piece of paper that I wrote down a bunch of Artist's names to look up later. On the scrap I also drew a crying person with a bob haircut and a hand over one eye. Here are images and things from these artists.

Second, While Portland is borrowing this Philadelphia/Seattle Artist Kinoko, She is putting up fancifully futuristic but demure fairy tale beasts at Black Wagon. Check the show out until the end of the month.

Zine Reviews

Soyamilkzine #1

I've read probably hundreds of zines on Veganism, from information, meathouse horror fiction, Animal activist histories to cookbooks. This one focuses heavily on music that speaks against the human waste cycle and for animals/veganism. Lyrics, interviews with Anchor and Lawrence Arms, Love letters to spoons, Hummus, and Liquid smoke. the article I found most interesting to read was The Paragon of Animals: reflections on the Human Perception of Intelligence. I failed to appreciate the derogatory usage of the words "cunt" and "retarded" in relation to vegan slogans but otherwise found it a nicely compiled zine.

Sugar Needle #32
Corina Fastwolf
P.O Box 66835
Portland, OR 97290
Ah, what can be said about sugar needle but what a sweet sweet little read it consistently is! Corina explores candy, 32 issues later! As someone who went to the dentist and have about 12 cavities today, I hate to admit i get candy recommendations from this little zine. In this issue there is also an interview with Portland trashy surf band Guantanamo Baywatch. The best thing in this issue is the discovery of "Belly Flops", irregular Jelly beans marketed as such. I also just opened it up again and I had smashed flowers inside from a cute girl i went out with last week. Cool.

Femme A Barbe
I love this zine so much - women with facial hair! History, high quality personal accounts, a work of fiction and just a touch of genderbending. Nice artwork scattered about. One of my favourite zines of all time.

The Other WO/MAN zine
A lovely person named Sarah came to stay with us this summer while travelling, and she brought an amazing and painful to read zine with her - all about being the big other, whatever that may mean to one! Great concept and similary great pieces. my favourite piece is called "No other woman" about one woman's grandparents lifelong love during the depression, wars, and eventually passing on. Another best zine of all time!

Zine And Comic Reviews

Jesus Christ Super Zine #2
jcszine at

The long Awaited second issue of Ariel Birks' Award Winning zine on Christianity! Explored within the pink pages are her parent's relationship with the church, youth camps and events, sexuality e-mails with an
Atheist and an Interview with New York Crochet Artist Nathan Vincent on coming out queer with a Christian family. Written in Ariel's accessible, honest and sometimes rib wreckingly hilarious voice...A great zine on it's own but best paired with it's predecessor, Jesus Christ Super zine Number one to get the whole story.
Bonus: She also comes clean and posts parts of youth journals! I recently destroyed all of mine in case i die and people comb through my things. That takes some mettle!

Map of Fog
Marcos Soriano
P.O Box 27252
San Fransisco, CA 94127

Well rounded and written zine out of Lovely San Fransisco opens with an evocative piece on working at a hotel with a jumper suicide (sucide has been a fairly popular zine topic in the last few months, and has been effectively catching my attention) and folks reactions after witnessing it and covering the person up from the common eye. Also of note is an interview with a person who was stabbed, plus photos and writing on some hidden places and things to see in San Fransisco. All the pieces are very well written and varied, so you will probably enjoy at least one piece!

Narcolepsy Press Review #6
PO Box 17131
Anaheim, CA 92817
narcolepsypresszine at

What a great zine. Reviews and life updates from a unique voice. Randy writes on his summer, shows, books, music played on his E-pod and going to the fair to eat a bunch of fried food. Solid! There are a bunch of letters from prisoners in this one, but I got a little bored and did not read them all. May
be later I will. But onto the reviews! Thanks for sharing the opinions and giving us access to each other's zines. Also included are Little excepts from comics and clippings pages, and a couple of pages of ads for rad zine related things.

The First Thirty Years
Martine Workman

A truly beautiful and charming zine I picked up from Artist Martine at Stumptown Comics Festival. Comics, charming drawings playing with words, photocopy + ink and little tiny poems. Also came with a tiny, tiny newsletter detailing P-patch updates on her street and little jokes.
A total delight!


One of the only things that made me titter super hard at Stumptown. I was pretty broke so had to choose carefully what comics and publications to bring into my life. I ended up with two beer coozies, this guy's neon covered swirly detailed spacemonster comic, Martine Workman's "First thirty Years", and Kinoko's latest Zine City Comics.Check out this cover! "cultural Overload" or something Kinoko says. Cool.

Slut or a sex addict?

Huffington post: Am I a slut or a sex addict?

If I had to chose between the two, I'd rather call myself a slut. My love and preoccupation with sex has lead to "drama" in my relationships only when I felt obligated to monogamy out of social expectations. Once I embraced my more "poly-amorous" or non-traditional feelings about sex the happier my sex life has become. We are all sexual beings and no two beings express their sexuality exactly the same. It only looks alike because of our socialization. Monogamy is not natural. It is a choice. A choice that makes sense if that's your desire. When its more your family, culture, or community's demand then we got problems. Sex addiction is real but -m ethinks the public protest too loudly 'round the topic when their spouse or sexual partners don't adhere to the popular expectations. The more honest we are about how we like our sex the less time, and money, will be spent in clinics and courtrooms.

-- Mo Beasley, Author and Sexuality Educator

I certainly do not view sex addiction as a "disease" that requires 12 steps to cure. Apparently, I fit all the criteria for having a bona fide sex addiction to a T, except for one crucial element: shame. It is this one little horrific emotion that drives millions of so-called sex addicts to spend exponential amounts of money in therapy every year, and just as many to seek support in groups and addiction programs. This shame stems from the fact that many so-called sexual deviants are slapped with the label "sex addict" when there is, in fact, absolutely nothing wrong with liking porn, or anal sex, or spending an evening with a call girl. I don't even think there is anything wrong with using sex to deal with your emotions -- after all, there is some truth to the saying, "let's work it out in bed." Maybe what we need are groups to heal our shame around sex, rather than programs that only serve to reinforce our neuroses.

Zine Reviews

Heart Murmer #2
The longest awaited zine of all time! Benji tells with a bright voice the stories of actions spontaneously taken after seeing the most fucked up bumper sticker of all time, an act of vengance taken by a former partner to another one who was acting like a dishonest dirtbag, and a few pages on personal values and the sword of ideology. It makes me feel good to read a zine by a radical person that is not simply empty rhetoric and statements, telling stories of human emotion, whim, and will to fight and that are delicious to read.

Requesting the Pleasure of Your Company

Written by the hoestess with the moestess (I know, I attended dozens of her parties and made a girlfriend at one!) Kelly defines RSVP through the film clueless, tackles her role of hostess-feminist through Virginia Woolf and serves up some helpful hints. Stories about kelly's parties:

fourth of july was the best, with American flag jello champagne cakes and always enough boobs(I mean booze). 20-somethings were smoking pot for the first time, and at her next party i ended up in a kiddie pool in my underwear feeling up a hot redhead that I later dated for months. There was always enough food, dips and olive oil mashed potatoes and wierd kitschy snacks. Her parties nrought together all the social scenes, zine librarians, theater people, regular average gays, punk retirees, internet dates - all drunk, all in harmony.
Once the night before one of her parties a woman from a nearby retirement home took a walk into kelly's back yard, lie in the leaves next to her garbage can and quietly died. Kelly took this with great grace and still hosted a party in yard, with the said partying grandma ghost in our midst.

Letters to An Absent Father

Mare draws charming, bubbly comics, and is an adult who likes pokemon so these letters to Ash's father, "adressing the reality of a broken family" are reccomended. A tiny pocket size zine with nice touches of lined letter paper. "Dead Dad. On a the sea, I watched my butterfree...& his mate dissappear....Into the sunset....Do you Ever miss Mom? Love, Ash"

Food Magic
Erin's first zine, a simple to read coctail and vegan cook zine featuring everything from basil coctails and walnut pate to a liver tonic. On the classy end of cookzines if I do say. Also, she's my new drinking buddy.
