Rock and Roll Doesn't Rock No More (verses)


Rock and roll doesn't rock no more.

It's turned middle age and become a bore.

It's everything it used to oppose.

Rock and roll doesn't rock no more.

Rock and roll is corporate and…

Proof That Cats Like Good Music

As I was getting ready to leave my parents' house last night, my Dad indicated me to stop and I glanced over to where he was sitting on the couch with our lovable cat, Bob. "He likes Ornette Coleman," he said, and at first I didn't know what he meant until he had one of the headphones from his recently-bought IPOD held up to Bob's ear. There he sat, happy as a clam, paws folded underneath his belly, casually listening. Perhaps cats may not be smarter than dogs, but they certainly have better…

Submissions wanted for a compilation zine about penpalling

I am looking for submissions of articles on the theme of penpalling. Some ideas might be:

- How you got into penpalling

- Things you love (or don't love!) about penpalling

- Meeting penpals, especially if it went particularly well (or badly)

- Any significant friendships/relationships you've developed as a result of penpalling

It could be written as an article, or as a letter to someone (perhaps a letter to a long lost penpal, or to

someone who has… Continue

Star Space arrives at ButterSword!

We've added an actual sequential webcomic book to our daily comic journals.

It'll soon be a comic zine but isn't yet. But...

If you'd like to have a look it starts here: http://buttersword.com/2010/05/16/051610/

It's got some language.

It's got some rotten attitude too.

But it's only the beginning, those things are bound to get much worse.

It's sort of a conversational sitcom meets B movie sci-fi.

Or… Continue

Really thinking about Pieces #3.

I've had the first draft of Pieces #3: On Careers, Jobs and Work done since the beginning of May. However, I've been a little stuck on editing it.

It's a bit of a downer, a zine where I focus on all the low lights of the jobs I've had in my life, especially my last one. It left me quite jaded. But there were a lot of good things about that job too. They should be focused on, brought to light and juxtaposed with the dark smears of bad-time employment.

It makes me want to… Continue

What a dull neighborhood. Where's a....MARCHING BAND?!?!?

I awoke today to the sound of a drum cadence outside my lonely apartment complex in Vancouver, WA. I literally jumped out of bed and saw and heard to my pleasant surprise a band marching by a block outside my window. There's life in Vancouver after all!!! (Limited time only. Certain restrictions apply).
