Here was my submission to the Miraculous Ladybug Zine!!  When I think of ML, I think a lot about fashion LOL.

Thanks again so much for inviting me to the project and also apologies for all the struggle I might’ve caused LOL;;;  The project was a huge success and it couldn’t have been done without @mayhugs so a BIG round of applause to her and the whole cohort!  Everyone’s work is so stunning, I’m literally drooling over the beauty


Dookie, Green Day’s first major label record, was released on February 1, 1994. To give you an idea of the music landscape at the time, this was two months before Kurt Cobain killed himself. The early ‘90s was a bizarre time in the American music industry, when the bands with the highest sales were the kind of acts you would usually find on college radio, from Nirvana to ‘softer’ bands like the Counting Crows and back again. Even the cultural juggernaut that was Friends would reference U2 and Hootie and the Blowfish, not the kind of pop idols who ruled the airwaves in the ‘80s, and who we’ve once again come to expect to be ubiquitous.

This combination of an “alternative” ethos with mass popularity is an extremely difficult tightrope for any artist to act, and often ends in one kind of implosion or another, whether it be of career or personal life. Green Day is one of the few bands I can think of who have managed it successfully, and they’ve done it by ignoring what other people say about them and doing what they wanted to do, a pattern first set with Dookie and still holding.

Dookie was recorded in three weeks but remixed twice before the band was happy with it. It’s a major label debut after a surprise hit of a previous album, and it’s named after the diarrhea the band suffered from frequently on tour due to eating bad food (it was in fact originally going to be called Liquid Dookie, but apparently that was “too gross”). Songs on the album touch on everything from anxiety and panic disorders to masturbation to mass murder to plain old boredom. It’s not an easy album by any stretch, despite the bouncy pop melodies that might fool a casual listener into thinking otherwise, and it’s certainly not the coasting-on-success a rising band like Green Day could have easily taken. Instead, it’s an album that really is good enough to merit all the success it’s had.

The album artwork encapsulates these contradictions: it’s a rendering of Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, with bombs dropping on it and an explosion at center. Billie Joe explains it like this:

I wanted the artwork to look really different. I wanted it to represent the East Bay and where we come from, because there’s a lot of artists in the East Bay scene that are just as important as the music. So we talked to Richie Bucher. He did a 7-inch cover for this band called Raooul that I really liked. He’s also been playing in bands in the East Bay for years. There’s pieces of us buried on the album cover. There’s one guy with his camera up in the air taking a picture with a beard. He took pictures of bands every weekend at Gilman’s. (VH1)

The band also re-recorded “Welcome to Paradise,” an homage to a punk squatters’ home in Oakland that they lived in before the release of Kerplunk. They recorded the music video for their smash hit “When I Come Around” in different neighbourhoods of San Francisco and the Bay Area, all while local zines called them “sell-outs” and many members of the band’s previous scene turned their backs on them, with Gilman Street even adding Green Day to their list of bands that were blacklisted from the venue (a list that, as I understand it, primarily exists to maintain Gilman’s rules and keep those who break them out). Billie Joe apparently snuck in one night after the release of Dookie only to find a death threat against him graffitied on the wall. About five years later, he would tell Spin, “I couldn’t go back to the punk scene, whether we were the biggest success in the world or the biggest failure. The only thing I could do was get on my bike and go forward.”

And going forward in their own style is what the band has done since, but first they gave us Dookie, a masterpiece of an album named after literal shit.

MIXD zine is a text & art-based space by & for mixed-race people of colour - born out of convos & dialogues surrounding questions / understandings of mixed-race experience(s), embodiment(s), histories & resistance.

“Healing” is the theme of issue #2!

[ some prompts / ideas:]

- what has / could healing & care look like on an (inter)personal, intergenerational, and ‘community’ basis?
- challenging the notion of healing as possible, as mandatory, as having a time limit, as equating to ‘forgive & forget (violence)’.
- exploring & grounding struggle / resistance as (inherent to) collective healing processes - within contexts of white supremacy & colonialism, & against systems / institutions of domination: e.g. prisons, the police, the anti-immigration system & the settler colonial state.

stumped? need more prompts / ideas for submissions? here’s a full brainstorm list from our initial visioning meeting for MIXD #2!

email submissions to MIXDzine@gmail.com !

Muchacha fanzine Issue #9 “Body Positivity” CALLS OUT TO POC, trans* folks, disabled badasses, women, curvy/voluptuous/fat/thick Goddesses/Gods/Genderqueers, and lesbians/gays/bis/queers to submit poetry, prose, art, comics, photography, quotes, scripts, musical lyrics, ramblings, etc. concerning body positivity. Submissions are very open to interpretation and can include but are not limited to discussions/art related to how race, gender, size, sexuality, able-bodiedness, age, and class intersect with ideas related to body positivity and/or embodiment.

Contact Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com with submissions. The deadline is Tuesday, July 1st and all contributors will receive a free copy when this edition is released in mid-July. 

Note: *This edition of Muchacha aims to challenge the mainstream white/heterosexual/able-bodied/cisgender-centric feminist movement of “body positivity” that has and continues to exclude/ignore the fact that many marginalized people have distinct experiences with their bodies that are often underrepresented in our society. Another goal of this summer issue is to reclaim the term “body positivity” in a way that is inclusive of diverse voices and encourages reflectivity on how bodies can also be cause for pain, conflict, and/or healing.
