Library Zines Portland Oregon

Portland, Oregon is a zinester’s paradise! We can check out zines at six branches of Multnomah County Library: Belmont, Central, Hillsdale, Holgate, Hollywood, and North Portland. Zines can be searched in the library catalog, placed on hold, checked out and renewed. Browsing the collection is great fun. My haul for today consists of (in no particular order):

  • Free Box The Magazine #3 – A zine extolling the joy of the “free box” in Portland and other cities around the world.
  • Bird Brain Vol. 1, No. 3 – A San Francisco zine dedicated to bird watching by an “amateur” birder. Very nice illustrations.
  • Paper Crush #4 – A local Portland, OR zine about collecting vintage postcards and photos.
  • Chronic: a story about chronic illness – Written by Sam Green-Eggs, writer of Chickeney zines.
  • the book bindery – Sarah Royal writes about working in a Chicago book bindery. You know how you…

The Church of Rock n’ Roll

The Church of Rock n’ Roll

This is the blog that myself and a few other members of our DIY all ages events and workshops, including the Portland Poetry Slam, almost every night we are throwing all ages shows with really good bands from all over as well as local playing for either very cheap or free. I know that I hated not being able to see so many bands I loved before I was 21 because of the stupid OLCC. So we want to provide a quality non-amateur experience and also educate the community about important events and issues and unique knowledge and skills, and connect them to their vibrant music, art, and self-sufficient culture emerging around them. Please check it out and follow, and if you live in the PDX area, come check out a show! I am currently shooting film, photos, and recording audio for the tumblr page, as well as helping out with all things.
