Just Stop


This is getting annoying. Oh, and there are way more.

We're just launching a new project, The Little Magazine Coalition. Through gatherings, workshops and the fostering of business partnerships, The LMC strives to make small magazines more visible and professionally viable. Our first meeting is at our studio in Brooklyn, Friday June 8. This isn't a panel or presentation, but rather an informal gathering where magazine makers can directly discuss with each other how they get their mags out and into the hands of people who will love them.

Anyone who makes magazines, or wants get one started is welcome. Drinks (booze!) and snacks will be served.

Friday: Super interesting Japanese performance artists Eiko and Koma will be at Barnes and Noble on 86th Street to talk about their new book Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty, an illustrated catalogue of their dance works, with choreographer's notes and archival material. 7pm. Barnes and Noble, 150 E. 86th Street @ Lexington. (photo above from a performance of theirs at Lincoln Center.)

Saturday: Stay home and close the windows and make sure you have hurricane supplies, booze and movies. Good luck out there!

Sunday: Afro-Punk Festival at Commodore Barry Park, Flushing Ave, btw Navy St and N Elliott, Brooklyn, 1pm, Free

Ongoing: The BMW Guggenheim Lab is a kind of pop-up laboratory to explore ideas and issues around urban life. There are tons of events and talks and things to check out, go look at the calendar. I'm interested in the toxicity tours of neighborhoods as well as the urban design stuff, the movie screenings and the bicycle fixing. BMW Guggenheim Lab, Houston Street at 2nd Ave. Through 10/16.

Last Chance, ends Sunday!: Elliot Erwitt: Personal Best at ICP. See Erwitt's own selection of 100 images from his 6 decade long career, including the goofy moments, the iconic portraits and the civil rights coverage. International Center for Photography, 1133 6th Ave, NYC.

Hey folks, it's been a while. But let's get back to it!

Photographer Bruce Davidson's penetrating 80's NY Subway portraits

I'm utterly fascinated by the Carson Mag drama. Everyone is an Ass here it seems. And of course, the magazine is just terrible .... just terrible.

Get ready for Glossed Over's Vougue Liveblog tomorrow, August 24th.

The gorgeous Mx Justin Vivan Bond is our cover star for issue #3, out NOW! V had an amazing dinner of Roast Capon with a group of some of v's most fascinating friends. The issue also features breakfast portraits, Lester Carey's New Orleans signage, essays about fried eggs, Arroz Con Leche, beef broth and more! If you've only got a little bit of scratch, you can still have an amazing meal with "bad" cuts from the butcher using the yummy recipes in this issue. And always remember ... an iron skillet is key.

A few years back I lamented a lack of collected issues of JANK on the internet or otherwise. I was just looking through some boxes of zines, trying to organize and protect (potential interns I'm looking at you here) all these piles of oddly-sized and delicate items when I came across a couple of copies of JANK and thought I'd do my part by posting them for you.

JANK was a house zine by Jeff Jank (above left) and Janelle Hessig (of Tales of Blarg! fame, above right). It was one sheet of letter paper folded in half the long way and I always picked it up at the comics shop in Berkeley. Among the many highlights were reviews of house guests (one of my favorite pastimes), hilariously profiled past US presidents, and goofy around town kind of adventure comics.

See issues 8 and 14 after the jump...

One of the more unique magazine racks I've found in quite a while, the Guidelines magazine rack by Frederik Rojé reminds me of super stylish 80's decor - something Patrick Bateman would use to display his magazines.

Available in grey, white and sometimes red for €169.00 at Frederik Rojé

I'm not particularly into Dennis Cooper ... in fact, I think he's a ridiculously bad writer ... but his 70's-80's zine to magazine Little Caesar is certainly of queer, punk, self-publishing interest, if only from a historical perspective. High-resolution Pdf's are available to download.

I adore this scathing review of Print, a magazine I have not looked at since 2003.

Via an actually good design magazine, Creative Review: It takes a lot of work to do a little mag. I love how when the magazine arrives a girl smells it! We ALWAYS do that.

The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival is a one-day festival of cartoon and graphic art featuring artists and publishers displaying and selling publications; lectures and conversations on comics; and associated exhibits and satellite events. The festival is organized by Desert Island (the best art comix store in NY) and Picture Box, one of our favorite publishers. The poster above was also createded by a Print Fetish favorite, Anders Nilsen.
