Pittsburgh Zine Fair

Catch me at the Pittsburgh Zine Fair!

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

On Thursday, September 1st from 5-10 PM I'll be at AIR peddling my minicomics and zines at the mega-awesome super-bodacious PITTSBURGH ZINE FAIR!!!

Here are my new releases created especially for this year's debut show:

Tales for a New Gen

I'm thrilled to present this zine of three short sci-fi tales by Justique Woolridge. I did a few illustrations and the book design for TFANG, but make no mistake -- Justique is the star here, writing the kickass tales and designing the gorgeous cover.

NoPants Zine Anthology

NoPants was my early 00s satire of corporate magazine culture, full of nonsense and cheeky ignorance. I've decided to collect the three original NoPants issues and create a new one just for the Pittsburgh Zine Fair. But instead of printing them individually, I'm collected them into a 48-page anthology of insanity.

Along with these two new releases, I'll also have issues of Time Log, some Super Haters ashcans, my sci-fi minicomic Passage, Poetree (which was randomly featured on the front page of Pop City today (see below for a screen cap), and more.

Still not convinced? Check out this video ad for the Zine Fair:

You might recognize the music -- it's my song Essential from Brilliant Shower. I'll be playing my Nik Furious music at the Fair from 8-9:30 PM, tearing it up with some of my mixtape mixes, original instrumentals, and favorites from other musicians.

So that's it. That's all I've got. That's my best sales pitch. Hope to see you there!!!

Long Jumper

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

dive like a leap
windows no sleep
a cliff a wish
to turn into mist

and reform at
the bottom
of that insanely
deep chasm

who invented?
Mario relented
allowing me to fall
straight down, long

jumper, in Speedo
remind me that
it was found at the
bottom of the trash

but why would
you throw this away?
like throwing away
the other side of the

world filled with so
much ingenuity no
matter how bizarre
and fractured I

insist on fitting
my thoughts into
squares and for
cing them to li

ve as plastic
reminders of t
he time I took
one long dive

I'm posting this poem in honor of National Bad Poetry Day.

If you like this sort of thing, you can snag yourself a whole zine packed full of my sub-par poems -- Poetree -- at the Pittsburgh Zine Fair on Sept 1st!!!

Check me out in the Pittsburgh Zine Fair promo video!

My Nik Furious song Essential* was included in the new promotional video for the upcoming Pittsburgh Zine Fair. This event is happening on the evening of Sept 1st at AIR in Pittsburgh.

Also watch the video to check out some of my art! You can see my fishbowl collabo with Justique Wooldridge @ 0:22, and @ 0:27 you can see me flipping through an old copy of my zine, NoPants.
