Incredibly Hot Sex with Hideous People
a vain attempt to promote a solo CD I'd recently released. After a brief life surveying local musicians and film makers, I attempted to morph the zine to the requirements of the Masters of Fine Arts program I'd enrolled in. The zine had a checkered life as an MFA project before establishing a methodology as a personal zine. The zine has gone on to mine the embarrassing moment and diarise the minutia of my everyday life. This has seen the zine narrative traverse the belated "growing-up" of a perennial "slacker" - through post grad studies, fatherhood, getting a real job, and becoming a mortgagee. The narrative is sometimes explored through writing and illustration, at other times through cartoons. However, some issues do deviate from this rationale. For example, the most recent issue (at time of writing), #34, sees regular people anecdote their brushes with the hugely famous. Issue 34 also includes the CD My Life With Madonna; largely iconoclastic Madonna covers by local artists."

The zine was originally issued for free from various cafes, galleries and retailers in the Wellington CBD with back issues available for a small cost from the author.
