The 5 Tigers represent the big things in life. This blog is about facing them.

Zines! (What’s a zine anyway?)

Tonight I wrote two zines: Choo-choo Charli about my cat and 5 Stages of Recovery about my path with bipolar. They’re $2 each or something in trade. Message me at .

What’s a zine? It’s short for magazine which is okay because a zine is a short magazine. Think underground press and self publishing. Basically, I print them out or photocopy them, staple them, and send them out into the world. I may need to invest in a long arm stapler . . .

My next move is to send copies to Xerography Debt ( ). They are a zine about zines that does reviews.

I like sci-fi movies, and I noticed that I like the noir ones best. They are almost universally set in a sort of post-apocalyptic dystopia. I later realized, I find them comforting and familiar, probably because I live there, at least in my inner life. Perhaps things are not as bleak as they seem, or perhaps I am simply learning to keep a better attitude. This is the chronicle of my adventures. May you find something valuable here.
