Canzine review + nice stuff!
What lovely a lovely surprise it was to travel by bus out to Canzine Toronto this past weekend, zines strapped to my back, to show up and find all this nice press coinciding neatly with the trip! Along with a mention in last weeks
Dose magazine, Lickety Split was selected as Broken Pencil's September Zine of the Month! Setting up my table in Canzine was a great experience because of my very special friends K + A who supported me big-time. They were incredible hosts and I appreciate their inflatable mattress which caught me as I crashed at the end of each day.
I met a lot of really friendly people at Canzine espcially the sweethearts to either side of me who would watch over my table as I went a-wandering and a-money burning, and I theirs.
Picked up loads of zines and other curios, and I though I'd share some of the smuttier titles with you:

Black Heart Magazine- a sexy smutty litzine out of Montreal. Nice layout, stylish.

s/he's got labe- a fun, genderqueer publication with lots of variety in the articles written. Ver smart and fun. I have #10, and may order all the previous issues quite soon!

Hard Liquor and Porn- A zine created to accompnay and help promote the Hard Liquor and Porn film and video festival. Lots of naked ladies inside, colour cover. Some photos from festivals and stills from video/films.

Smut Magzine- ...has gone glossy! With Annie Sprinkle as cover girl and articles such as Butt Sex, sexy photos and product reviews, this is definitely the slickest of the bunch.

More soon!

I unfortunately will not be tabling Lickety Split this weekend due to unforeseen circumstances and shifts in priorities. Don't be alarmed- nothing horrible has happened and all are well! The other dates this Autumn are still a Go! So please check back often I will be attending Puces Pop myself as I'm sure it will be loads of fun, especially that round-table discussion about zines in the age of blogging (tomorrow, Sunday from 1-2pm).

Also look forward to a new zine creation from yours truly about gardening and eating in the near future!

I mean business.

Business plans aren't sexy when you're a BFA grad.
As vol. 3 plows forward I am trying to figure out a sustainable, feminine business plan for la zine. The idea is to get this little lady to be a quarterly. Reconciling unusual publishing and distribution methods with grants and stuff isn't here's my new Seeking ad:
You: MBA, CA + all-around good person with a strong back for heavy workload (and ego-lifting); Me: desperate= TLF ?

Lot's of exciting secret stuff in the new issue but I'll let one hot item slip for my lovelies. Myself and "Montreal's Official Suicide Girl Photographer" sat down for a good coupla hours and hashed out this whole business of taking erotic photos of people and I found...(ta-da!) a kindred spirit.

Also, we've printed more issues of # 1 + 2, so look out for #2 in stores around town starting this weekend, and feel free to get in contact with me for copies of number 1. I'm also gonna take a spin around town on my sexy new bike and put up little reminder stickers in various photo booths so that forgetful exhibitionists remember to flash the flash and send it over to me! They will be printed up in numero 3. I love trinities.

Enjoy the sun!

lickety list

On my last day of work, I feel a longing to indulge myself and share a few of my current favorite things with you!

Lickety List (early july-style)

Currently Reading: "Imaging Her Erotics" a collection of work, writings and writing by Carolee Schneeman, the art heroine of my teenage years.

Best Site to Fuck Off of Work on: . A teen girl site with lots of horoscope thingies, quizes, Gurl Guides (examples: Zinemaking, Thrifting, Videomaking etc...). Second site:

Fave blog: Once again, Hipless Boy...see side bar.

Fave food: Bar-b-q anything meaty, good cold beer, those fruit popsicle things, honey on everything, fresh from veggies in the garden- grilled.

Magazines: Venus and (dare I admit it) Vogue. Furtive leafings thru On Our Backs in the store.

Summer "must-have" item of clothing: vintage dresses. Easy, easy access, sexy and girlie. Its the hottest summer in MTL in awhile, take advantage. I am eyeing hot pants and short shorts, but generally shorts are a no go for me. Bikinis are good too, halter top style looks good on me.

Summer sex "must-have": The Bullet Vibe. Check Come As You Are in the side bar.

Summer Porn: this new DVD I found in the new releases at Movieland, something like From The French Brothels, early b/w silent porn, often funny but hot. The early camera work is awkward in many instances and reminds one of amateur sex video tapes. Lots of exuberance on behalf of the actors...I didn't get to watch the whole thing though- got interrupted...

I'm outta town for a bit and then I come back to bring LS3 to climax in August. Yummy.

Twisty New Thoughts Tightly Bound.

The new issue is rising up like some slow-growing, late season fruit from a large devil-ish plant. I can't wait to split it open and push my fingers into the wet mass pulling up the juicy flesh, pitted with seeds that shine like clouded eyes...I'm all excited about submissions like:

-masturbation mini-CD
-photobooth exhibitionists
-polaroids of various assholes
-essays on the art of pornmaking
-reviews of sexy experimental films
-self-portraits of yours truly

loads of things! And keep sending stuff.

Also, Lickety Split will soon be distributed in Ottawa and other places by Blackburn Zine Distro. Check the links for more info. Expect the third ish in late August /early September. Thanks for your patience, now that I'm graduated things will move along much more quickly!!!

lots of love,

Words to Fuck By.

“If you don’t like what you see out your window, the most subversive thing you can do is make your own vision. If criticizing sex is so important, then where are our role models? Who do you think is going to make erotic expression meaningful to you if not yourself?”
- Susie Bright, Full Exposure

Dykes On Mykes

As a preview for Thursday's Cat Call show, check out tonight's Dykes on Mykes show, a CKUT program from 7-8pm. 90.3 fm
Live web-streaming can be found at CKUT

One of my parallel lives is that of a musician, so if you'd like:


Come one, come all to CATCALL - Montreal`s only performance showcase dedicated to independent women performers. Catcall happens the first Thursday of each month at Pharmacie Esperanza @ 5490 St-Laurent (corner St-Viateur).

This month`s show features the jazz stylings of Amanda Mabro, the haunting spoken word and music of NEeMA and brand-new music by Amber Goodwyn and Erin Ross, with their new band Mothlight. The show will be followed by an open mic, so bring your voice, your poetry, your guitar or your tap-dance shoes! Doors open at 9pm, $3.
