• Art by Claudia
My name is Claudia, I’m a local artist with a stubborn dream of making a line of themed day-planners. Organizing schedules on paper is a dying art but the designer and organizational freak in me wants to revive it in a fun and practical way that feels personalized. Let me show you my art, check out my blog: claudiadecasas.tumblr.com Until I can get my day-planner dream organized and funded you’ll find me online drawing my friends and professing my love to Coffee.

FADED GLORY MAGAZINE is a zine documenting the original graffiti seen along railroad freight cars since the early 1900s. It covers in depth interviews…rare photos…as well as local San Jose,Ca. railroad history. Issues have even brushed the agricultural/orchard history of the southbay
We teach free workshops on the west coast (mostly in Southern Cali, the Inland Empire in particular). We also run a distro for queer and anarchist zines as well as zines from artists from the Inland Empire.
love having bands come in to the studio to play live on air, and usually follow up with an interview, and our focus are bands that are queer or include female musicians. Besides the music, Scream Queens also likes to dive into political and random not-so-political discussions and rants.
Participation with the radio station is key to broaden knowledge of and listening to non-commercial radio. This way people can tune into awesome music, and experience actual free speech on air. Scream Queens is on air wednesday nights at 10pm, and can be streamed at
berkeleyliberationradio.net. We also have a tumblr-
screamqueensradio.tumblr.com, or can be contacted via
email@example.com to set up a radio show/interview for bands and other artists. Also, we like to make local announcements about projects, events, and shows, so anyone can send fliers or updates about those.
