songs about ghosts (zine) [edit] [flag] Last Updated: 2008-06-09

Exploring abandoned buildings, self-destructive friends & the structures they burn, falling in love with distance, quantifying memories, hardcore shows in Philly and raves in southern England (non-fiction, no reviews), lots of rain and snow and Brooklyn, Seattle, and Montreal. Densely formatted with pen and ink illustrations of apartment buildings, warehouses, and birds. "this seriously thick zine is mostly stark text on the pages, but the pieces are set off with incredible illustrations and art, mostly of gloomy tenement and warehouse buildings. it sets the scene for most of this zine, as jasmine lives in brooklyn and explores her life, mostly lived in nyc, in half-fictionalized style. she takes up the legacy of punk rock storytelling with impressive focus and well-crafted narrative." -review from pander zine distro "Jasmine's writing is this mix of fiction and reality and it blends so seamlessly that you don't know which is which and for that matter, you don't care, because it's all true if not completely factual. Her stories give me goosebumps, make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, as though there is a ghost in the room with me as I'm reading it." -jessica disobedience, from razorcake magazine's top 10 of 2003
