Know any queer rural zines? x-post (if this doesn't belong/breaks rules, sorry; tell me&I'll delete)
Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but my friend Jenna (a.k.a. trashcan_chica) needs some help:

"does anyone know of any queer zines about living in rural areas or going to rural areas?

any help/pointing in the right direction would be amazing. i went through the whole Queer Zine Archive and couldn't really find anything.

jenna b

p.s. i just got a wordpress site, sassyfrasscircus.com!"

Her (AIM) away message also says: "is looking for zines about/by members of radical queer ANTI-URBAN communities, so if you know of any..."

So please comment if you can help at all; thanks. :]

Though right now it's kind of basic, there's some cool shit up and the message board is kicking. In the near future you can expect record reviews, show reviews, info on classic houston bands and more.

Monthly Mixtape Swap Group
Dear Houston DIYer's-
I just wanted to post that I involved in a mixtape penpal group that is always open for people to join, as long as they have intrests in mixtapes and are dependable enough to meet a once a month deadline. Once a month, members get an email from me with someone elses address and a due date, and have before that date to make and mail them a tape. They end up getting a tape in the mail also from a different member. It is cassette tape only. If anyone is interested in signing up, please email me all4choice@hotmail.com

The hours run like this:

And if you can't remember any of that. just call at:

Or goto: www.sigslagoon.com

The On The Mouth Stuff is near the back.

Here's the deal: Tomas(Sig's owner and and singer for such acts as the Suspects, the El-Orbits and Clouseaux) is letting me have a space in his store to once again supply the music fiends of Houston with their fix.

However, i need your help. Come out and start checking out things and buying them so's i can get things going and bring more and more goods in. Pretty simple, huh? I'll be posting here and on the Hands Up Houston message board when i'll be up there as well, in case you want to hear stuff before you buy it. Or if you want any suggestions as well.

I also have a myspace. It's On The Mouth music store. Be my friend.

And please help to spread the word and get people to come out. Thanks!

Alright, so i've hauled what was left of my distro over to Sig's along with a bunch of random used stuff. All the On The Mouth stuff is marked with a big red price tag(new and used). Think of it like the new white donut for those of you that remember that. The first "order" in is from the fine folks at Team Science and friends. A partial list of the goodies is as follows:

*All the current O'Pioneers!!! releases like
-"Black Mambas" CD and limited silkscreened jacket LPs
-split CD with Saw Wheel
-split 7" with the Measure(SA)
-split 7" with By The End Of Tonite
*Shotbaker LPs (imagine if Naked Raygun were only 22 years old. It's that good)
*Monikers CDEP (Ryan from Discount plays guitar and sings in this Jawbreaker-esque trio)
*New Bruises CD (Anthemy punk from southern FL similar to Avail)
*Witches With Dicks CD (Like a really gruff, dirty Dillinger Four)
*Papermoons 7"
*The Measure(SA) "Historical Fiction" CD
*Razorcake Magazine
*By The End Of Tonite LPs
*By The End Of Tonite/Tera Melos split CDs

And a coupla other things slipping my mind right now. In the next day or so will be an order from No Idea as well with tons of other goodies. Be on the lookout. See you at Sig's!
