DIY GUIDE TO KILLING OFF ALL BOREDOM
Go outside. Scream your name into The Void. Sit in the sun and feel godlike. Go swim somewhere illegal. Cook a nine-course meal for your friends. Get drunk and cry. Throw up on public property and shout about Tolstoy. Ride a train. Ride a bus. Tell someone off. Smash something important. Climb a tree and read a book. WRITE a book. Be sweet to a baby and let them know that all big people aren’t a) dead inside, b) bored, or c) afraid of adventure. Make your own everything. Stay up all night and walk around the city alone. Learn that you can be a patriot for the land while still hating the government (be a patriot for the deserts, the plains, the mountains, the buffalo, for Woody Guthrie and Frederick Douglass, for 250 years of good books). Find the best genius, which is the genius that speaks plainly. Grow something from a seed. Talk to a dog. Go visit a friend and throw your knife into a river. Sing. Sleep in. Quit your job. Make a zine. Start a war within yourself. Break a law. Destroy all uncandid thought. Open your heart to the sky. Live.

Hi tumblr friends,
See you all this weekend at TCAF (Toronto Comic Arts Festival) in Toronto. This is my first time ever exhibiting at TCAF, so I am all tingly with excitement times a billion.
I’ll be tabling with the one and only Sam Alden at table 241. COME SAY HI DONT BE A STRANGER
In addition to older zine titles (including ‘I Think I Am in Friend-Love With You’ which is currently only available for sale through cons), I’ll be debuting a newly formatted version of my online Rumpus comic ‘Moon Between the Mountains’ in zine form.
TCAF TCAF TCAF!!!
Oh, to be a citizen of Toronto….*sigh*

So pretty!! I’m a sucker for organization :)
Here are six covers of various book cover zines that I have for sale at Skylight Books in Los Angeles. They are smaller than the palm of my hand. Want one?
Angelenos: My friend Penelope Uribe-Abee is organizing this event. I love the concept! Please come with unwanted, useful items to trade and barter. There will also be a station/poster wherein you can put your name, contact and services that you can potentially barter for other services!! If you have many items—bring a blanket and a friend. If you only have a few, feel free to walk around with your items and scope things out. Attached is a flyer with the date (this sunday) and location. Signs will be posted around the small area assigned as the location. PLEASE DISTRIBUTE THIS EMAIL/FLYER!! FORWARD IT TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY!!
totally rad idea. let’s go!!
I think I might have to check this out today!

This is really awesome for so many reasons.

OR pay what you want on their bandcamp. everyone wins!
The waiting is over! Here they are: Alice Bag, Allison Wolfe, and Drew Denny, talkin’ shop, gettin’ deep, and jammin’ out in six Youtube videos that can almost capture the raw awesomeness that emanated from The Moth Theatre when they were in it.
Designed with my sharpie, scanned, uploaded, and purchased. You can get one too at my society6 page!
Damn it feels good to be a zinester.
