Over a year ago I posted here about the Hampshire College Zine Collection in Amherst, MA.  Since then, I've been working on a website that is now live if anyone is interested in checking it out: http://sites.hampshire.edu/zines/

It's called a "catablog", which basically means that it's a catalog of the collection in blog format.  It was built in wordpress & each zine has it's own…

Granting that all life is chance ...

Granting that all life is chance and blind bumping in the night. We still are moving, and moving forward, and moving toward something that always seems to be more spiritiual, more religious, more heaven like.

Newspapers going out of business? Maybe this is why


Most newspapers, have put pleasing corporate sponsors over pleasing readers. It shows on every page, with more ads and fluff, and less features the readers want. Why are they surprised they are loosing customers. They have shifted coverage to more scandal of the few and less issues of the millions. What’s left for the reader – dull comics?

Newspapers listen to a former reader – pull back on ads, reduce the influence of… Continue

Two Quatros (poems)

Two Quatros
rain comes
then goes
aching catterpillar
wants to fly
What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning. I see that many seem to like these – great! Pass your favorites around if you want – Tom Hendricks

Let the NEA, National Endowment for the Arts, shift from giving grants to art groups, to setting up community art centers -places like this that are open to all artists in every major city - open to performers, artists, theater, lecturers, arts and crafts teachers and all the rest. Let traveling artists show, play, perform, lecture, on weekends, plus first come first serve, during the week for the cities… Continue

Sleeping Beauty (poem)

Sleeping Beauty (poem)

Telling the tale
of Sleeping beauty
too often misses
what makes it so great.

It’s not the years
when the young girl is sleeping
but the moment a kiss
tugs her awake

Prof Stangly

[based on a cartoon by Gaham Wilson]

Out to catch
a butterfly or two
was greedy Professor Stangly.

He filled his net
up to the brim
and they took off with prof - dangling.
