30 Day Photo Meme – Day 21 – Brainscan #29/ No More Coffee #4 split zine

Day 21- A photo you are proud of

I like this photos because of the colors in it and that it respresents a finished product on a table and ready to go. I’m also stoked on the photobooth picture that shows up out of or mind  before the tabling at the zine fest ever started. This was a fun project.
Released at the 2012 Chicago Zine Fest A split zine with Brainscan #29 and no More Coffee #4

Brainscan #29 – Ben Spies (no more coffee zine) threw out the challenge of fiction to my land of perzines and this is the grim result. These three short stories are my stab at fiction wrapped in the usual high contrast cut and paste layout you would expect in and issue of Brainscan. One story is about leaving a hometown for greener pastures only to make a stop half way there to visit an old friend and includes thoughts and reflections about the past. The second story is about a weird housemate and his strange perception of the world through Woody Allen tinted glasses and odd notions about art. The third story is about weighing the value of our short lives against the rock wall embankment of a cemetery. I admit that the voice is similar to mine and the subject matter doesn’t stray too far from what you would expect to find in an issue of Brainscan, but it was a really fun experiment and I’m glad that Ben talked me into doing this split.

No More Coffee is a zine of fiction for people who stay up too late. Stories like these are how I get the black bile out of my system, so to speak. Alex and I agreed to do a fiction split not knowing how morose it would end up, but we’re on similar wavelengths, I guess. I’m still writing fiction because I love it and because I’m too scared to write about my own life, but even if these stories never happened, the people in them did. “Photographs of the Dead” is about what the residents of a suburban apartment complex doesn’t know about their neighbors. “Exit 121″ is about an impetuous woman living at a truck stop. The untitled story is about Sunday breakfast at a diner.

30 Day Photo Meme – Day 17

First off, I’ve been working on another project and if you haven’t checked out StolenSharpieRevolution.org yet, you really should do it now. It’s taken up a bit of time for me and I’m pretty stoked on having all that zine stuff in one place! Ok, on to the photo meme:

Day 17- What’s in your bag/purse/pockets

in my bag : A notebook, some pens, a Sharpie, headphones, wallet, passport, Burts bees lip balm (that I never see to buy but always seem to have), an amethyst charm bracelet that was my grandmother's, a chunk of fluorite, my keys hooked to a ridiculous key chain I got in Wyoming that is solar charged and blinks "Super Bro", a ball chain necklace with a ring that is also a bottle opener (got that in vegans on the zine tour), a change purse made from a bike tube, my phone, a bottle of clove oil because it is my favorite scent ever, two extra phone batteries because my batters drain fast, a thumb drive, a pair of convertible gloves, and a glass water bottle with rubber on the outside because I hate drinking out of plastic.

30 Day Photo Meme – Day 16

Day 16- The view out your front door

I took these the other day when it was rainy and cold and Portland Winter-y. I think my neighbor works for Stumptown, that's why the van is there. Across the street is the sound wall and the freeway onramp to I-5 south is on the other side of that. Classy, eh? My yard is a a dead mess. It is supposed to be nice today so I hope to get some work done.
