I have a bunch more designs to complete, but I really like these. BLT zine artwork by our cool collaborator Slash. Some of you old […]

- by in Happenings, Headline, Images, Trappings

I hope you all ate ice cream today. I had two different kinds of ice cream. I ate both the Royal Vanilla and the Hemp Date Nut from Omega Creamery. They were both unbelievably delicious and, even with central air conditioning, nice on a hot summer’s day. You should know that National Ice Cream Day […]

- by in Books, Headline, Trade/Business, Trappings

As I’ve been working on pulling everything for the BLT Punk Humor Book 25 Year Black Leather Times Zine Omnibus, I’ve been finding all sorts of odd surprisingly non-ephemeral ephemera from the past.

The first time I went to a science fiction convention was with the Wesleyan Science Fiction Club when I was around 17. It was Boskone in Boston.

The Iconography of Alice in Wonderland and Heavy Red

- by in Headline, Images, Trappings

The character of Alice from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is wonderfully iconic. When Lewis Carroll wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, most literature of the time depicted children in a very mannered, unrealistic, and subservient way. At the time, it was very radical to have a child heroine who knew her […]

Dinosaur Footwear Tricera Hi-Tops

- by in Headline, Trappings

The folks at Archaix Laboratories have created a deeply awesome pair of sneakers. Their slogan is, “Solving society’s problem of a lack of wearable dinosaurs” and their first production run is for green dinosaur triceratops shoes called Tricera Hi-Tops.
