Boy's Own: A history Boy's Own was the original village newspaper of the London acid house scene and would go on to to have a hand in some of the most successful dance music of the '90s. Stephen Titmus talks us through the history of one of dance music's most influential publications.
Fucktooth - ZineWiki - the history and culture of zines, independent media and the small press.
Fucktooth was published from 1991 to 2000 and was a widely circulated zine. Each issue covered Jen's personal life, her love of music, sex, progressive political issues, and more. Other writers from the punk community often contributed to Fucktooth as well. In later issues Jen focused interviews on people she admired in the punk and zine communities as well as more talk about sex and relationships. The last issue of Fucktooth published in 2000 was #22.
When I was in my last year at UArts I did an experimental drug study at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia. There were three seperate times when we had to stay overnight for two nights in a row. All I had was my sketch book and some basic cable. There was also an I.V. in my arm the whole time so they could take blood once an hour. That includes the hours of 12a.m. to 7a.m. Needless to say this piece was done in a state of delirium. I think it shows.

I love horror movies, in case you couldn't figure that out already. Here, I got to combine my love of vegan food and Texas Chainsaw Massacre in the same piece. I've been told that this makes people laugh out loud.
