An exploration of the body, one part at a time, by Tomas Moniz. Written as poems, but reading more like vignettes or small essays about how complicated it is just to exist in your own frame. These pieces are sweet, emotionally heavy, sexy, and sometimes really funny. They are so honest that it leaves you wishing for that same openness in yourself, to be so unashamed of what we carry around and what we desire...[ continued ]

A wonderful new zine about gleaning, otherwise known as "harvesting surplus produce and giving it to people who otherwise might not have access to fresh fruit and veggies."

In The Hid Are Out, Noah D. writes about growing up in Dayton, Ohio in the '90s and discovering fellow Dayton natives The Breeders. Told through short personal stories, the zine is a heartfelt tribute to the band and an example of how music can change the course of a person's life.
