I compose and create various types of zines. Most have an underlying theme of self loathing and "gallows humor". Short stories, poetry, a music and culture fanzine, and other forms of assisted deprogramming
From FMC Vol. 1 - "Thank you for inspecting the banner installment of Feeding My Cancer. This issue is titled 'Hate The Living; Love The Dead.' It was conceptualized behind a general contempt of the human condition and those who perpetuate its existence. Our publication aims to propel our peers and personal interests into the public eye while simultaneously stamping out the activities and actions we have deemed undesirable and intolerable. We hope you can find it in your heart to hate us."
I began the zine process after being taught by the late Tim Butcher (Blackdog Zine) who was taught by the late Sammy "Winston" (Spiderghost Press Gang). Those two individuals are solely responsible for my induction to the art of zine-ing.
Since my zines range in content from musical and culinary reviews and interviews with friends to short stores and coloring books, I'm not entirely sure I have a proper response to that. I suppose if an idea pops into my head that feels like it's worth creating I attempt to bring it to life in the most accurate representation possible.
Censorship and individual experience - bar none. Creating and producing something independently ensures that you maintain complete control over the message you intend to expel and allows you to be heard in your %100 truest form (which is an across the board basic human right).
"Tedious and brief."
Feeding My Cancer - Vol. 1. I got the name from a lyric in a DOWN song. It had a couple of interviews with personalities I was interested in, a poem, some photos, and a record review written by my younger brother.
"We march with runes of death."
