Minneapolis Psychedelicam Volume Three

Joe Cunningham’s Minneapolis Psychedelicam Volume 3 is a collection of hyper psychedelic photographs taken on a fucked up iPhone One. This is the third volume of the zine series. A special 25 print edition will only be available this Saturday.


Our Fetid Kind Parts 1, 2, and 3

Our Fetid Kind is a three part series illustrated and written by Cat Raia about the high and lows of a childhood friendship and its evolving nature into adulthood.


Minnea + Plus and the World and Back

MInnea + Plus the World and Back is a travelogue persona-zine by Minne Deer. The crossing narratives of world travel and the relationship with her father are the focus. Generously supplemented with images of 1990s ephemera.


Ann Animus' Hanging Deer

Ann Animus’ Hanging Deer is the third found photograph release by the elusive and mysterious Ann Animus. Every photo is of a gutted deer suspended in the air. Gruesome and yet evocative with an introductory essay by Karl Noyes.


Paintings by Emily

Paintings by Emily is what it says it is. A collection of paintings by artist Emily Hayes complete with a centerfold. Popping with color and humour. It’s worth a flip through.


Blind Shake Shit

Blind Shake Shit is a travelogue of Cat Raia’s time on tour with the Blind Shake Shit in Europe. The centerfold is a six page / panel collage by Karl Noyes.



Psychosis is an actual recorded monologue of a someone going through a psychosis. Both disturbing and unintentionally humorous, this zine offers a weird open door into the mind of someone shrouded in delusions of grandeur.



Karl Noyes’ Jennifer is both a fanzine of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the exploration of a brief relationship with a young troubled woman.

Free admission! Stop by and say hola!

Zinefest 2012 Flyer

Hey all,

Here’s an interview I conducted with the rad people of Twin Cities Zinefest. This is their main site.

My friends Kevin Hagen and Guy Wagner will be tabling with me. We have quite a bit to access this year. We’re nearing 15 zines in complete form with many more on the way. If we get it done in time, the first installment of Three Finger Umbrella will be on hand in its 8.5″ by 14″ splendor. No promises. But perhaps. Much to do. Much to do.

Here are the detats for Zinefest 2012:

When: Saturday, September 22, 2012: 12pm-6pm

Where: Powderhorn Park Recreational Center, 3400 15th Ave S., Minneapolis MN 55407

If you click on the picture above you can get the flyer PDF if you feel like spreading the word further.

Hope to see you there. It’s free!!!
