This post is from the JMBzine Blog Vault, which means it is a very old blog post that I wrote at a very different time of my life. My views on religion (I’m now a Humanistic Jew), politics (today I’m a democratic socialist), and many other subjects (LGBTQ+ inclusion, abortion rights, etc.) have drastically changed over the years, so please bear this in mind when reading this post. – Tags: #2001 #Pedicab #Austin

Here are a few of my favorite music zines…
Vagrantcafe.com – music, culture, art, etc. Good message boards (also some of my poetry is published on their poetry section)
Fineprintmag.com – founded by the staff of Bandoppler, R.I.P. A good, artsy music zine.
Exitzine.com – it sucks, but I love it because me and my friends run it
Greens.org – a good source on the world-wide Green movement
Here’s a NY Times story on what happened in Genoa.
A Place of Terror and Fear: Inside a Jail in Genoa – Look what when on when Dubya and the rest of his rich cronies were in their closed door meetings in Genoa.
Sorry I haven’t done a good job of keeping this thing updated, but that will change as I’ve gotten all fired up reading a Mediachannel story on blogging.
So anyway, here are some of the latest links of interest…
First, Austin sites that I should mention include The pedi-cab petition(Editorial note (2022): broken link), which I must admit is a shameless plug for a petition I’ve started to help all of my fellow pedi-cab drivers; Austinfast.com, a comprehensive (but rather cluttered) Austin portal site, and Michael Bluejay’s Austin Bicycling website, the definitive source for Austin bicycling info.
If you’re interested in following the upcoming NYC mayor’s race, check these sites out:
Kramerformayor.com – This is the campaign site from the real guy that the Seinfeld character was based on. He got the Libertarian party’s nomination for mayor of NYC and from what I can see is running a decent campaign.
Politics1.com – NY – a good resource for researching all of the candidates on the upcoming NYC city election. They have all of the candidates, even those of 3rd parties.
