Profile Information

By way of the rural midwest, I’ve been a resident of Chicago for the greater part of a decade. I've been writing the perzine, "Milk Milk Lemonaid" for just as long. Student of mortuary science by day and a short order cook by night. Goofy, vulgar...enjoys fun and unenjoys not fun... in moderation. And I can ride my bike faster than any ice cream truck.

Including Mr. Tastee.

Guess who just finished a zine?

The Greasy Spoon's Weirdo Du Jour

Hey Krystie. I volunteer at a zine shop in Melbourne, Australia called Sticky (www.stickyinstitute.com) If you have any copies of #14 left we would really love to stock 10 copies. There's a form you can fill out on the website. But email me at candace(at)stickyinstitute(dot)com if you have questions. It looks really cool.
