We contributed a song to a CD to accompany T Cooper’s book Real Man Adventures and got the legendary Vaginal Creme Davis to record an alternate lead vocal. For a limited time the song is available to download at the above link. Enjoy and happy holidays!

This evening I’ll be presenting in NYU’s “Gender and Performance” class on zines, and specifically, my zine International Girl Gang Underground. The class has been instructed to author a zine as their final project, so I’ll be speaking about my motivations for creating IGGU (with co-editor Stacy Konkiel) as well as leading a zine how-to segment and leaving plenty of time for questions.
I broke out these “Frankenstein” zine pages to show the students—you know the ones, made up of layers of glue, ink, and cut-up paper. The ones you eventually xerox to become your first set of flats. It’s interesting to see these pages as objects unto themselves.
It’s exciting for me to have the chance to discuss my zine—and zines in general—in an academic context. That said, contact me if you are looking for someone to lead a workshop / presentation / event at your university on these topics!

*ESPO’s sign-painting fundraiser project occurred last year, but it’s that time of year again so please donate to support Creative Time anyway!

My former employer Jason Andrew asked me if I had any burning questions for the panel discussion he organized tonight in conjunction with To Be a Lady: forty-five women in the arts. These were my answers (brief, obviously, as it was a text message exchange).
I’ll be listening intently to the panel discussion tonight, which features choreographer Julia K. Gleich, painter Tamara Gonzales, fabric artist & sculptor Brece Honeycutt, painter Lindsay Walt, scholar Amy Whitaker, historian and scholar Anne Swartz. Jason Andrew will be moderating.
