Diamond in the Rough No. 7 - crossposted to everywhere [20 Dec 2006|07:41am]

Diamond in the Rough No. 7

And now more from the shameless self-promotion department...

Diamond in the Rough is my perzine, and this issue chronicles some of the most emotionally turbulent time in my life, the breakup process that Touya and I went through. I thought long and hard about some of the things that are in here, but it was very cathartic for me.

This issue begins with a very yummy vegan veggie goo recipe, a brief restaurant review and then heads into a compulsive eating episode. It describes 'dumping syndrome' - the effect that
happens on a stomach that has had the gastric bypass when you consume too much refined sugar. It's much like having a heart attack, and something to be avoided. Discussions about
biking to a second job, cake frosting, and loosing a good set of marker pens follow. Things turn strange when a follow up story about people who keep their children's umbilical cords

and other pieces of biological material. Articles on getting older, dreams, and being accosted in the street by religious idiots are intersparsed with snippets about verbal and emotional pain that occurs during a breakup process. Text & handwriting heavy, with short pieces of poetry make up the sum of the issue, and of course the now traditional LilWitch comic strip.

Here's a quote:

"I love him, don't get me wrong, and the idea is that he might come back one day. I doubt it."

Forty Pages, two bucks.

Yes, that's right...
It's here...

Issue #3 of Slipping Through!

Featuring....well, love. What'd you expect?
And some poetry (some good, some bad) and some theorizing upon your (that's right: YOUR) birthdate and conception dates, a CD for sale, and lots of filler art.
Drawn by hand.
Hells yes.
It's costs $2 usd. or $1.25 usd and two 39-cent stamps.

And I will love you forever. ^_^

Also available RIGHT NOW is my zine for the 24-Hour Zine Thing:

Echoes #1/1

It's quarter-sized, 24 pages long, hand-bound (with twine and a holepuncher), and most of them look a little raggedy because I was up until 4 this morning cutting and binding them.
It's somewhat a perzine, but mostly it's pretty similar to Slipping Through in that it has no idea whether it wants to be a perzine or a litzine.
So it's both.
And it's just 75 cents, or 50 cents with a stamp.
Or, if you're a fellow 24HZer and have your issue ready, we can trade.
I only have 24 copies, so act now!

And this is xposted in a few places.
And I love zines.

*deep, contented sigh* [21 Mar 2006|08:38pm]

I'd just like to say...omg. I was almost beginning to believe that there were no other zinesters in the whole of Michigan (well, except for in Ferndale, where all the cool gay people live, but my zine doesn't fit in with theirs).

Judging by the number of members here, there are very few, but at least there are some.

I'm going to email that email address down there to see if there's a new community or something.
But then I'll introduce my zine.

I'm so happy to have found this place!

Hey guys...my friend started a new band and I'm just helping him get the word out and about. If you have a minute and are into piano/guitar/mellow music...or if you know anyone who would be interested...let them know and have a listen.
