There is an alternative to Paypal starting up this summer. It's called Green Zap, and you don't need a credit card or a bank account to join. Anybody can join and easily transfer funds with other members. It sounds awesome. But even more awesome is that if you sign up now you will receive $25 to spend anywhere you want this summer as soon as Green Zap is up and running. It only takes a minute to register, but you can only pre-register if you are referred. So here, use my referral link:
As soon as you're signed up, you can start referring other people. You will then receive 5 more dollars for each person that registers using your referral. So check it out!!

Local Exposure for Zines!

My mom works at the city library in Mountain Home, ID. She was recently asked to write an article about zines for an Idaho state library newsletter. Here's the link: - just click on or scroll down to YOUNG ADULT CORNER: "ZINES?" BY ROBIN MURPHY. It's great. I found it amusing that the editor assumed I was her "teenage son." That's okay though - I'm a teenager at heart. GO ZINES! and go local, too!

new zine library at Boise State University

The BSU Publication Club is starting a zine library here on campus. Our goal is to accumulate a collection of zines that can be shown here on campus and elsewhere to help get more people exposed to the idea of zines and also help zine writers to get their stuff out to more people. We also hope to begin distributing zines to interested students and community members. If you are interested, please send copies of your zine for our collection and for possible distro consideration.
If you have any comments or questions, write to Dave and Dan at:

Send your zines to this address:
Boise State Student Activities
1910 University Drive

My little brother's band came and played a show here in Boise this past weekend. It was the first time I had seen them since they changed their name and went through some lineup changes. I thought they were good before, but they are even better now. I was amazed. Their sound has matured and their music is catchy and cathartic. They really rocked out. They are definitely one of the best local bands I have seen in a long time, and I'm not just saying that because my brother is the frontman. They're awesome and they have the potential to become even more amazing.
They have a 5-song CD-r out and a spot on myspace so check them out:
