"But the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it....All silencing of discussion is an assumption of infallibility. Its condemnation may be allowed to rest on this common argument, not the worse for being common. "(John Stuart Mill)

Breaking the barriers of freedom expression. Defying the controls of public opinion. Love it or hate it. Do It Yourself!

To all zinesters out there, let us connect!

Wishful thinking

After finding out that this blog's "search tab" is not working, I now have something to look forward to this Christmas break. This is going to be a lot of hard work. First, I'll be updating the directory. To zinesters that have changed their contact info, don't hesitate to contact me :). Second, I will be changing the layout and since I am no good at HTML, I hope my hands and eyes won't give up. hehehe. 

But what bothers me the most is whether I can do it before I return to the office. I can't even provide timely updates. Just thinking about it makes me tired. But I'm gonna do it. 

(crosses her fingers) hehehe

Real Tight Crew Zine

To all Real Tight Crew fans, getting updates from this zine has never been this easy. You can now find the publication's site in one of my links. O diba :). When I was looking for zines, I have to do it manually :). Today, you can get all the info in just one click. 

Three issues of Real Tight Crew has been already released. There are still available copies, just contact Joab. 

Again, I just want to stress that I am NOT in anyway distributing this publication. You see guys, contacting the zinesters is not just about getting a copy. You get to know its history and believe me, knowing how things started and why these people continue to do it, the feeling is way too awesome. You'll learn a lot from these people. And that is exactly my reason behind creating this blog. It is for you to seek the answers to your questions, to exert effort. 

Joab, thanks for the update! :) Hope to see more issues from you. By the way, I'll update the directory soon. Again, thank you. :)

Incidental Afterthought Zine 12 (very late update)

Obviously, this is one of my super late updates. But I don't care hehehe. My hands are still working, I just don't have the luxury of time and I have a penchant for hibernation.

Anyway, satisfy your zine cravings with Incidental Afterthought's 12th issue. It was released last May and I'm really wishing that there are still a few copies left. As you can see, seldom do you see zinesters come up with more than 7 issues. 

To date, Wendy Say's still holds the record for having the most number of issues released. More than 30 issues of the said zine has been already published. But of course, this is based on my personal research. 

At any rate, contact, Incidental Afterthought's zinester for your copy. :)

Assault With Intent To Mosh Zine

Assault With Intent Mosh zine is yet another baby of the one and only Froi of Radikal Primates Zine. Ok, this dude is one of the most active zinesters that we have here. This is his third fanzine already (kindly correct me if I'm wrong Froi hehehe).

Now this guy is also responsible for Black Market Bastards and has been involved in various zine collaborations. So here we go, a few words from Quezon province's pride, Froi:

Assault with Intent To Mosh Zine Hardcore/ Punk / Horror is our subject of choice, If you love any of those, you will love us. Issue O features interviews with Posero, Migraine Records and Altar of Dagon. Issue 1 with Wheelchair 4x, Jane Hoe and Psychotic Sufferance. Issue number 2 featuring 99 Assaults, Repugnant, You Suck, Excess and Jack Bullshit Fanzine interviews. Zines are in Person. Pay for postage if ordering by mail. 

Again, Froi's page is in the links, contact him for a copy, not me, ok. :)

The "Auteur" (sic)

Whatever you give a woman, she will make it greater. Give her sperm; she will give you a baby. Give her a house; she will give you a home. Give her groceries; she will give you a meal. Give her a smile and she will give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what she is given. So if you give her crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.

Express yourself

Disclaimer, Warning, Whatever

This site's main purpose is to somehow educate you about the Philippine fan/zine scene. I DO NOT DISTRIBUTE these fan/zines. If you want to have your own copy, the DIRECTORY is here and the LINKS are already provided so you can contact the zine editors directly. BAWAL ANG TAMAD. If you are too lazy to contact these zinesters, then you are giving me the impression that you are also too lazy to read. Enough of spoonfeeding. I don't have time for sluggish protozoans.

Love it or hate it, DO IT YOURSELF! READ, READ, READ
