Ponytail//Love Magazine// Teal Triggs

Here's a clunky screen grab from when Ponytail was featured as one of Teal Triggs' top ten new zines on Love Magazine
(I was realllllyyyy excited)
I've been secretly coveting Teal's book 'Fanzines' since the Zineview event at LCC, reading it sneaky page glance by sneaky page glance in bookshops across London, waiting for Christmas.

5 Good Things To Look At

Back by vaguely popular demand, is the most irregular and most effusive feature to ever grace the internet: "5 Good Things To Look At"

1. Mild Fantasy Violence
Legs 11- Emma Hammond

Emma Hammond contributed an amazing piece for issue #1 of Ponytail. She's pretty brilliant and so is her new podcast Mild Fantasy Violence. Listen to it here.

2. Strange Powers

My brain almost exploded with joy when I saw this trailer - a documentary about Stephin Merritt and Magnetic Fields!
Magnetic Fields are one of my favourite bands and I listen to 69 Love Songs when I'm writing, hoping a touch of narrative genius might rub off on me!

3. Fever Zine Sandwich

I recently bought a Fever Zine Sandwich at the Camberwell Zine Fair. It's a slice of zine heaven full of deliciously illustrated ingredients, now I've exhausted my cheesy (one more) food allusions that's that.

4. Mermaids

My talented friend Gus has an encyclopedic knowledge of excellent films from the 80s, it was on her recommendation that I watched Mermaids starring Cher, Bob Hoskins and Winona Ryder. Who knew Cher could act?! She can. This film is brilliant,just the right kind of eccentric, the characters are more Zooey Glass than Zooey Deschanel. The soundtrack is pretty swish too.

5. Roylex

In what is fast becoming my quest to document all my life on the internet (aka blatent self promotion), I've started a photo blog with a friend to document our christmas card making project from sketches to screen printing to (hopefully) world domination. At the moment this involves drinking tea and listening to Mariah Carey christmas songs. This may or may not be a good thing to look at... decide here
