a place for zinesters - writers and readers
The hilarious August edition of The Last Word is now pub-a-roo, and it's available for a price tag of only 99 cents. (Cheap!)
This humor-filled ish deals with the following topics...
• More uproarious old toys and the flatulence that goes along with them.
• The microapartment price-gouging scam.
• When things stink.
• A former school principal's right-wing Facebook meltdown.
• Some roll-on-the-floor funny YouTube videos I've found.
• The last 2 years of road trips and the path of hilarity that has ensued in their wake.
I also explain how AdSense has forced me to sell my work instead of giving it away for free like I used to be able to do.
Read The Last Word now before it reads you...
And remember, The Last Word supports the Occupy movement.
W00t! Got my first zine printed, assembled and ready to go!
“The Gopher Protocol” is a zine that celebrates feminine beauty in a retro pinup context and seeks to be body, woman, and sex positive. This is a half page zine of both vintage and modern pinups, urbex, articles about shooting pinups and contains film and digital photography. Saddle stapled, standard copy shop printing, card stock cover, regular paper inside. All photography is either shot by me or is from negatives in my collection. 20 pages not including cover.
The brand new print version of Musea #189 is available at the usual suspects (places).
Those on the mailing list should have your copies by now*.
This is the, "THIS TRAIN GOES ONLY TWO WAYS" issue. With a special double cover that spotlights two great train photos.
The issue is really two smaller ones.
There is one art half that announces the release of my new recording, and gives some information on all 14 songs. Plus an essay for you singers, "LESSONS LEARNED IN 50 YEARS OR SINGING".
The other science half has a single multi part essay, 'LIST OF IDEAS THAT ARE ORIGINAL BY ME." Through the last few decades I have collected some science hypotheses that I think are exciting and AFAIK, original with me. Here is a listing of those.
This issue follows the 2 previous issues on Writings In Science. Did you miss those? I have a few left. You can also access all these issues and my music online: the zine on the musea website, the recordings on the hunkasaurus website. (see below). You can also access a lot of information from the listing about me in Wikipedia.
Have a good summer - Tom
*BTW if you have stopped receiving your copy, changed your address, and still want to be on the mailing list - let me know.

Piltdownlad #6: Institutionalized
This issue features the "Institutionalized" story cycle, which is an exploration of one event told from the individual perspectives of four participants. Picks up where The Nasty Dear (Piltdownlad #4) left off: from the Jackson group home in Anniston, Alabama, to Hillcrest Hospital, a mental hospital in Birmingham, where my brother Joey is put in the Youth Ward and I end up in the Adolescent Ward. Meanwhile, our father and Rick come home to discover their fate: a potential life sentence for child sexual abuse. Interspersed among the narrative are actual court records from the trial, newspaper clippings, song lyrics, photos and other miscellany. As with all issues of Piltdownlad, not for the fainthearted or the hardhearted.
Also includes a letter and comment sections and zine reviews.

Hi Kelly - I'm tapped out financially but would be GRATEFUL for a review copy ... DJ Frederick

It's the Back-to-School issue, folks, and this ish talks about such nifty topics as...
• A hilarious trip to Milwaukee.
• Why I didn't go to the Occupy National Gathering.
• Minnesota fights school calendar changes.
• The Federal Porn Allotment.
• When people drank beer at school.
• Bad hotel reviews
• More funny YouTube clips.
• PayPal woes.
• The latest in my war against ad servers that cheated me out of my revenues.
And remember, if I can ever find an ad server that I believe is honest, I'll be able to offer The Last Word for free again. Hope springs eternal.

Best all, The Last Word is a supporter of the Occupy movement.
The latest volume of my comic illustrating Craigslist missed connections is out now and available to purchase!
Here are a couple of recent reviews!
You guys are already reading this series, right? This is where my hatred of/general annoyance at social media really slows me down, because all I can do is assume that you’re already reading this. If not, this is a series by Robert Hendricks where he illustrates those creepy/hopeful/soul-crushing “missed connections” messages on Craigslist, and it’s consistently a thing of beauty.
Here's a snippet:
...Whether it’s empty longing, or a penchant for odd sexual proclivities, there’s a human constant in wanting to connect. There’s a sense of isolation in feeling so different that you think you can’t. There’s something psychologically primal about revealing insecurities, secrets, and confessions in the public forum of Craigslist, anonymously hiding in plain sight. Grade B+.
