Fuck Cultural Assimilation

Alot of people like to throw around big word's and point finger's these day's,judging what should and shouldn't be seen or done,in thier opinion.It's a cheap trick-an easy way to make yourself feel like your doing something.Everyone's got an opinion lately,and putting down other peoples stuff by slapping negative label's on it makes them seem validated.If your vague enough about what you say,and can make it stick,you can maybe organize a witch hunt,if your lucky.Cultural assimilation is one…

Portland 1993/4

The grow house was only 350 buck's a month.It got shot up by some Rollin 60's awhile ago.If you sat on the porch,junkies would hit you up for money and smokes,so they got a pit bull.It was 3 blocks off Alberta Street.They had another one a couple block's down-there were 10 1000 watt light's in each basement.Even I wouldn't live in them,so they just sat there,empty.We hung out there and partied,to make it seem like people lived there.Portland was different then-at least for me.Me and about 5…

Portland,1992

Time,to me,is meaningless.It could be yesterday,tommorow,next year,100 year's ago-it's a worthless concept.I just don't give a fuck.This whole joint could be a Philip K. Dick plot twist.I don't know.It's insignificant.I was living in California-North Oakland,to be exact.Right on Telegraph-it was a step up for me,from West Oakland-Ghost Town.I had this 19 year old girlfriend-real sweet,but kind of a bubble head.We rode around on beat up Schwinn's,smoking weed.I was drawing comic's.Protest's…

Now open on Etsy: Sweet Mayhem Zinery!

I opened an Etsy shop for my zines. It seemed like that was the easy thing to do for people who don't feel like trading and want to make sure their purchase is secure. Here is my spokesperson, an exaggerated Colonel Sanders crossed with Mark Twain, mixed with a '49er, to tell you the news:

Then There were 5: Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber

What's important is the quality of the music - I like how all the voices are auto tuned to robot levels, and the musicians sound like karaoke - that's what rock and roll has always been about. - Art S Revolutionary



Well it looks like we're down to 5 musicians in the country: Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber ... and a few wannabees.

This is the best music in a world of billions right?

Confessions of a Type 40

'Confessions of a Type 40' started out as a perzine, originally titled 'Confessions of a Type 4' (Type 4 Personality on the Enneagram). Early in planning the layout, my father suggested to change 'Type 4' to Type 40' because I wanted to make the cover look similar to the TARDIS from Doctor Who, complete with customized door instruction.…

Quizzical Question

Quizzical Quiz Question

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
