:One Zine Scene:
This has got some Zines in the front and a good example of DIY band publication at the end. woo
We discussed Do It Yourself culture tonight. We found it was far too broad of a topic, and that we might have to revisit it in the future. Here are some Wikipedia pages for you to get a brief feel for what the broad idea of DIY is all about:
WE also spent a good deal of time talking bout DIY Zines. Annie is way into the cool world of Zines check it out:
www.iprc.org which is a portland based free resource center and library for independent publications
www.northwestzineworks.com is a good place to just search for zines and read reviews
SOME ZINES I LIKE
www.venuszine.com a feminist/music/ type zine for women with a large emphasis on DIY culture and women. lots of reviews of cool stuff women are doing themselves. Has reviews for other zines too! Their website leads to other cool DIY type sites.
www.foundmagazine.com its relies on readers for its material. readers send in interesting photos, notes, or other odd things they find.
www.therelayproject.com a really cool audio zine.
www.smellingtrees.com has lots of zine reviews for zines that don’t have websites….check out “community bike cart design” “plug” basically the how-to section is cool and the fiction section. hell they all are cool.
***this list could go on and on. just search around this is a good base though.
