How do you make a zine?
Why do you make a zine?
How did you get into zine-making in the first place?
What other zines do you read? Where can I get my zine photocopied? How are zines distributed? Where are zines reviewed? Where can you go to buy zines? How do you pronounce it? And how can I find out more? Be you a seasoned vet, a zi-curious newbie, or an unrelated browser in the right place at the right time, you're ... Read More

Missing Unicorn posters have gone up all over Manhattan and beyond, while a billboard promises a reward on 104th and Broadway. According to the signs, the mythical animal was last seen entering Central Park at West 72nd street, and the public is encouraged to call the sightings hot-line with any leads. Mimicking those photocopied fliers publicizing a lost pet, the posters are the brainchild of artist Camomile Hixon, who has invited the entire city to join the ... Read More
And to prove it, they have dedicated their third Book of Shadows all to us. With colors like the electric blue that is Radium, Psychedelic Sister’s pretty purple, and the whitish silver of Uzi (which is what I’m guessing you would see if you were actually shot by one), what’s not to love? I barely even wear makeup and I want this thing…just look at it! Who doesn’t secretly adore a pop-up book?That being said, you better hightail it ... Read More

It’s been a long scorcher of a summer and most of our brains have melted into a gelatinous goop that in just a few weeks we will be scraping off of the sizzling pavement to revive them for fall’s flutter. What better a way to send off the summer’s heat, and begin the quest for new, hopefully more functional, brains than a good old-fashioned game of Capture the Flag, zombie-style! This Saturday in NYC, August 14th NYCentric ... Read More

Are you missing the crazy, monotone shenanigans of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie in “Flight of the Conchords” as much as I am? Just two seasons of the quirky TV show was not enough! The duo was featured as our coverdudes in the April/May 2008 Men We Love issue, and we’re still madly in love with them.
Assuming you BUSTy ladies out there are just as obsessed as we are and happen to be in New York for the weekend (or whenever, ... Read More

Texas-native Sarah Jaffe is in NYC tomorrow night for a free show at the Apple Store in SoHo. She’s on tour for her Suburban Nature album release. Her folk-pop sound is a little Feist mixed with Regina Spektor, but with a more organic sound, and apparently she is awesome live!
Sarah is also playing on May 26 at Union Hall in NYC before her tour across the country supporting Lou barlow. Check out her website for dates and ... Read More

Monday, for the first time in NYC, federal prosecutors utilized the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act to convict two men with blocking the entrance of a Planned Parenthood in Manhattan.
Both men will be sentenced June 10th. They will face a maximum of six months and a maximum $10,000 fine.
In light of the circus in Oklahoma, it's nice to know that some government folks are working to make access to abortions easier.

Here's art that moved, and will move you: Last May, Brooklyn-based artist Swoon brought art to the sea by designing three handcrafted ships. Even more impressive, the vessels are made purely from recycled trash and materials.
This past summer Swoon and a crew of more than 30 artists navigated their fleet from Slovenia to Venice, Italy, to invade the acclaimed art exhibition the Venice Biennale. The result was an imaginative, artistic endeavor - a dreamy, ... Read More
