Scenes from B0ardside 6 on Sunday in the Sunset. Demo & performance from visiting artist Sean Russell Hallowell ~ performances from musical guests Entropics and Fuckwolfband ~ and great teamwork from the B0ardside b0ard.
B0ARDSIDE #zine #6 flew off the shelves. @ me to get your copy (or back issues #1-#5).
The B0ardside will be at Stokefest, celebrating Great Highway Park, on Nov. 11 with a new zine (No. 7!) Music by Sideb0ard, readings by Matthew Monte + others, and a make-your-own Zine Zone. Be there!
Someone recently asked me what my first memory of listening to WFMU was. I had to think about it for a minute, and I finally settled on either Wildgirl (while driving to Maxwell's for Saturday night gigs in the late 80s/early 90s), or one of the longtime Sunday afternoon hosts (Gaylord Fields or Bill Kelly) while loitering at the old See Hear shop on E. 7th St. (They were ALWAYS playing 'FMU there.)
Speaking of See Hear, here's a short video tour of the place. I can practically smell the persistent odor of incense, weed, and damp basement all the way across the time vortex. https://youtu.be/4OeAVE2KQJM?si=rTmg3DnMnjUbIHXV

I am an artist and professor of Creative Technologies at Virginia Tech. In my work, I focus on the ways technologies of visualization and control intersect with and threaten #trans lives.
Circling up all the #zines in my world, and it's a smol pile. Now that I have some free time - do I start a catalog? curious how folks do it..if they do at all.
friends, i have a few more copies left of my zine series about ~The Great Garbage Continuum!~
"Avoid angry garbage spirits and junk piles run amok in this visual tour of the strange lands beyond the (trash) bin. In a world overflowing with people-made stuff, understanding these flows of unwanted materials will be crucial to the thousand-year cleanup we're going to need next."
the set of 6 color zines is $15: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1490501146/zine-pack-great-garbage-continuum-pack

It’s a conversation I ahead with Socrates about Zines.
This was a crowdfunded project that I put together back in 2020. Since then, I have run out of non-defect physical copies of it, so I thought it would be a good idea to make it more accessible, as well as discount the remaining physical and digital copies of it for everyone else who didn't have the chance to get a copy yet.
So go and grab yours!

My plan for Saturday is to last minute assemble all my #zines (and maybe redo some zines in a new format) and do all the printing and assembling because Paper Plains Zine Con is SUNDAY and I HAVE NOT YET PREPARED.

We present to you our second zine!! We're having fun, fun, fun in this SUMMER IN ARADIA! Miss those classic beach episodes? We have you covered with 16 pages, full color! :blobwizard:
Get it for FREE here!
most of my art can *only* be seen offline, so please come by my table, check out my art, and talk to me about how it makes you feel. or just say hi lol
OKAY. My three "side hustle" goal projects for the week:
📓 Assemble and print zines (since Paper Plains Zine Con in Lawrence, KS is this next weekend!)
📹 Create a few "C++ [topic] in 60 seconds" shorts, queue up on YouTube.
🖌️ Create some art for an itchio asset pack. (Perhaps bases and parts to build Visual Novel characters? RPG characters? Something...)
💡 And since I'm gonna do class prep anyway, that all goes on my website, too.

The computer nerds said I'd regret having so many physical #books ...they were wrong.
Modernists said I'd regret spending so much time on the #classics...nope.
Classicists said I was wasting my time on #zines and counterculture and the bubbly edge of new shit...not at all.
It's getting to the point where when I need good brainfuel, I look for what I'm being told is useless. :D
Small-circulation, self-published works known as zines are quietly gaining traction in Japan, as a growing number of writers and artists are moving away from showcasing their creations on social media. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2023/08/10/japan/media/zine-culture-publishing/?utm_content=buffer0f4a1&utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=bffmstdn #japan #media #publishing #magazines #zines
Hey #believeinfilm friends,
I wrote a short review of a new zine that arrived on my doorstep about a month ago. Even though it has no captions or written stories to supplement the images, I felt connected to it.
Between Here and There by Steve Rydz https://www.analog.cafe/r/between-here-and-there-mpy3
living on a #farm, i am often confronted with that most inevitable of problems: TRASH.
we don't get garbage service, so all the trash we produce, we have to take to the dump ourselves. and since i'm pretty lazy, i try to repurpose & re-use as much stuff as i can (to minimize trips to the dump).
observing this "lifecycle of materials" led me to the concept of the GREAT GARBAGE CONTINUUM: a great swirling vortex of materials in various stages of use and function.
we are all in the continuum. items flow into our homes, are put to use for some time, and then flow out of our homes via weekly trash pickup, toilet flushes, and donations to the goodwill.
given how much trash humanity makes, it would serve us all well to understand how to navigate this continuum.
so i made a series of 6 zines dealing w/many aspect of the GGC: from an introduction to garbage flows, to descriptions of the creatures that reside there, and ways to deal with Too Much Stuff.
this 6 pack of #zines is available for $15 here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1490501146/zine-pack-great-garbage-continuum-pack
(there is no online version yet, my apologies!)
Journey Planet Issue 75 focuses on Science Fiction and Fantasy #Music and Musical Instruments, it's a free DL(in .pdf format), and has a wide variety of articles.
hi friends! my fabulous new #zine series about the great swirling cycle of life of garbage is now available!
as many farmers & gardeners know, a lot of things that may be considered garbage are actually useful inputs if processed properly. so i think y'all will like the series!
it is a mere $15 on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1490501146/zine-pack-great-garbage-continuum-pack
(only print versions available for now)

“[Zines are] a vehicle for knowledge, for skill-sharing [and for] collaborating,” Smith-Vaughn said. “We could all make one page of a zine and put it together and make this time capsule of a moment.”
friends, my long-awaited new #zine series about the Great Garbage Continuum is live!

Do yall have advice/resources for improving visual accessibility when designing mini #zines? (1 page 8.5x11" paper folded down into a 8 page booklet)
I'll use general print accessibility guidelines, but am wondering about approaches specific to very small (2.75x4") print page size. Thanks!
"Civic '99" by #BenjaminPaulKraco is a riso zine about a kick-ass 1999 Honda Civic, "Speed! Action! Violence!" Hell yeah! Before I bought it, we talked about my 1995 Toyota Tercel. Had to get this.
You can find more of Benjamin's work on Instagram @ WorldsBiggestMinecraftSbarro.
Fresh #introduction post as I've been on Mastodon since the first Musty Meltdown but only just migrated to cupoftea.social.
I'm Suzy, I work in a chaotic little lab in the UK apart from when I'm allowed out into a field for some enrichment. In my spare time I'm a collector of hobbies including #DnD, #MiniaturePainting, #Crossstitch, #Crochet, #3dPrinting and historically, #zines. I've always loved #writing but don't do enough. Also I have a housemate called Teddy/Tedward/Tedopher/Tedocrates. He's small, orange and looks remarkably like a cat.
Hi! I'm a queer zinester based in the PH. I read a lot & write a lot & obsess over a lot of things.
I like cats & hate fascists.
