Message to Hollywood Stars

Hollywood stars are well paid. When people come up to the box office at the Inwood where I work, and complain about the high ticket prices, I reply, "Thank goodness all that money is going to me and none to the Hollywood Stars."



Well it's funny because it's just the opposite. Major Hollywood Stars are very well paid.

That is one reason for the high movie ticket prices.

American Library Association Conference Chicago ALA 2013

A close friend passed away this morning.

So this morning I read a facebook status of a friend, Mila (she was known as Stephanie and was the frontman of Quiet Rot, a short-lived ‘riot grrrl’ band from my hometown). She wrote that our friend, Rizal just passed away at 7 a.m. I’m shocked. Straight away I remembered my wife said once, about quite a few of my friends died at a young age. First it was Syukree, then Abroko, then Aiman, and now Rizal! I can’t help but cried a few times…

Dylan Williams,R.I.P

I think its cool people are reprinting all of Dylans shit online.Dylan was one cat that did sum up the proper ethos of what an independant publisher should strive for-he was down for the art,not the profit.Its a good way to be,since you arent going to make any fucking money anyway.Another thing that made Dylan cool was,he was a serious fan of comics.Zines are fanzines-made by fans of the art form-a nice way of saying,non-professional.Call it whatever you want.Theres definitely a loss due to…
