Profile Information

Gestalt and Pepper

Is the zine that I do now. Its a lil bit of everything, from letters to poems to artwork to stories. I have a few copies around of the first issue, if anyone's interested. I am slowly but surely working on issue #2. Submissions welcome!
I first started reading zines when I was about 13. My father would pass them along to me. They always made me want to make a zine of my own. Towards the end of my 14th year, I made my own zine, called The M&M. The first issue didn't have much substance, mostly just doodles and little bits about my friends or dreams. I ened up making 3 or 4 issues of M&M over the next year or so. By the last issue I was getting pretty good at it, had articles about things in my life and such, a few things by other people ( not many, since no one around where I live has ever heard of a zine unless it was by me). I ended up losing interest in M&M for some reason. A few times I would try to make another zine, but would get about halfway thru and get bored. When I was about 16 I made a zine soley of my artwork, called "Inside the Medulla". I had a piece or two by other people, but mostly it was just my art and drawings. It looked pretty cool. Then years later, after having my first son,when I was about 21 or 22, I did a zine called "Almost Normal". Mostly it was just stories, and I had a few contributers. I didn't want to focus directly at myself, although there were a few stories about my life, I wrote them from someone else's perspective. I had a few more failed attempts at making zines between "Almost Normal" and "Gestalt and Pepper" but usually, due to computer crashes, I would lose all my work. Now, although I do type and print stuff with my computer, the zine is mostly done by hand, cut and pasting the old way:)

Delays in Zine Printing.

Posted on August 6, 2009 at 7:23am 2 Comments

Well yesterday I thought I was gonna be all hard core and go donate some plasma so I could get my second issue of Gestalt and Pepper printed up. The printers I go to charge a booklet fee to scan it all, so I went ahead and scanned all 36 images and put them on a jump drive to bring to them, and save myself the $20 for the booklet fee, figured I could make $25 selling plasma and get at least 10 copies printed. Well to start off, they still had tocharge me the booklet fee, they said because each… Continue

New Shoes

Posted on June 22, 2009 at 2:18pm 2 Comments

The little girl had just been given a new pair of shoes. Her last pair she had outgrown with holes in the toes. Left alone with her new possession, she had to figure out how to get the plastic string connecting them OFF.

She searched around for something sharp, but those kind of things were kept well out of reach from the children. Unsupervised, she ran around the living quarters, looking for something, finally spotting it on a nearby end table. A shiny red lighter beside a pack of… Continue

So, I went down to the hippy coffee shop tonight .  .  . this dude we call Elf had his babylonic computer thing with him.  I said, I want you all to check out this chicks wild art. Craig, Lilly, Aaron, Ky, and Kara were all in to it man.   They thought your art was really far out. Craig said, "How does some chick from Podunk Florida come up with this stuff?  I said, "Hell if I know!  It must be the manitees man . . . they must speak to her and shit."   They said, "Man Fishspit!  You take too much speed!" I said, "It's better than that goddamned devil weed!"  Ky said, "Man!  This chick smoked the weed! Check out how trippy this shit is."  I said, "Oh."  I"ll have to ask her.  They all smoke so much dope!  Do you?  But when it's all said and done, they dug on your art man.  Really!  They thought you were cool as hell. 

Well, I wanted you to know that your people (the hippies, wood carvers, beatniks and commune livers) up here think you are the shit.   I got jealous!  I said, "You pack of long hairs never compliment my wiseblood's like this!"  I put on my crucified Jesus act.  They just groaned.  Well girl . . . I guess you got fans in Washington. The pack of rat bastards.

I send my regards, Fishspit out.

Thanks!  I'm moving on to e-mail.  If you ever want to e-mail don't hesitate to drop me a line. My e-mail is fuzzybunnyflatbunny@gmail.com

And I say to you: Cool art! 

Fishspit out!

Yup sister . . . I'm an old timer.  Your art work makes me think of the 60's.  It's really groovy . . . . and I'm not saying that word to be silly.  I love the word "groovy."  I love hippies . . . I hang out in the coolest hippy coffee shop in the world!  It's in Redmond Washington.  It's all hippies and then me!  If any of the art you send me is psychedelic I will copy it (with your approval) and have them hang it up on the wall.  They dig that kind of thing.  They smoke dope and I take speed.  That's why I've been up all night and am on this damned computer at 7 a.m. Seattle time. 

Sending love to the manitees! 

Fishspit out.

p.s.  I am on old punk!!!   my first show was in Tulsa Oklahoma (!) in 1983!

the rock against Reagan tour with M.D.C., the Dicks, D.R.I, and the Crucifucks!

It changed my life!  woo hooo!   Smash it up!

At 12:50am on August 3, 2013, fishspit said…

Girl . . . you send me anything you want.  I'll hang it on my wall with pride.

Keep writing girl . . . it'll all come together.  It's hard, I know, because we live in a Babylon of a world that keeps us working so much we don't stop to smell the manitees.

thanks, Fishspit.

It's on its way Madrea! 

By the way . . . your pictures are awesome!  You do some of what I think is psychedelia.  The cool thing is you often do it without colors . . . just black and white.

Is that a manitee! 

God bless all the manitees in the world and god bless you.

Fishspit out.
