Profile Information

I work on two printed projects Slingshot & 510BADSMUT. I used to make a zine called ABSOLUtELY ZIPPO. Sometimes i write or contribute content to random publications (Maximum Rock n' Roll, Social Meltdown, Radix, Dreams of Donuts, Gutter Soup, Hell Times, Boy Does High School Ever Suck, Big Duck Zine, Teen Punks In Heat, Tales Of Blarg, Hex...perhaps YOUR ZINE!!!)  I also help curate a massive zine library at home and at the Long Haul Info Shop. If you want your zine on the shelf of places in the Bay Area like Long Haul, Book Zoo, Thrillhouse Records or want suggestions for other rad spaces contact me

I haven't done a new issue of Zippo for a couple of years..OH WELL. I am active making videos in the zippo tradition check it out:


But better yet I can receive actual mail

My address is

PO Box 4985

Berkeley CA



i like to trade zines, letters and compilation tapes. some of the old zippos pictured on this site are available as well

just ask for details


I can't see why zine people (many that I encounter in this site) can only be contacted through closed sites like face###K(etc) ...its as if they want a limited audience who are giving into the police/corporate state or something. I can imagine people don't want to publicize their home address, but really, they are missing out by not exchanging letters. Getting mail from people you don't know ain't all bad. The five or so people I met thru this site has enriched my life....DIG...

Thanks! We booked a show at EM Wolfman for Thursday (supposedly, it's not on their website...). I contacted the places you mentioned in SF and Berkeley.

I appreciate the help.

I have maybe a weird question for you: I'm going on tour soon and was wondering if you knew of a good place to do a reading in San Francisco or Berkeley on Friday, July 17? I mean like a donut shop or a hidden park where people would come out? Or, I guess, a real place like a bookstore that would have us.

Follow up: would you want to read with us? Here's a bit of information about me and my tourmates:https://sites.google.com/site/ifnothingelsethesky/upcoming-seminars
