And In Case You Were Wondering

In case you were wondering about my novel.

It's about 4 teens trying to survive their freshman year of high school, all the while dealing with psychopathic ex-besties and overprotective parents. Here's an excerpt from a part I just finished working on, I read it and thought it was excerpt-worthy. So here it is:

    “Are you okay,” Avalon asks.

    “I don’t know.”

    “Well, are you in pain?”…

Round Robin Proposal

I’m trying to initiate a Round Robin postal mail circle. This would involve trading zines / mail art / cassettes / or other creations. How it would work is: I compile a mailing list from interested parties. The first person on the list sends an item of interest to the second person on the list, then they send their own item to the third person & so on. It is a mystery as to what you will receive from the previous person on the list, which makes it fun and delightful. When the circle…

Weird thing about being part of a secretive organization... You don't get to talk about it.

Whilst visiting MEAT Clown Studios Hollywood, we got in touch with a friend who introduced us to one of the MEAT Clowns way back in '12. He says the MEAT Clown has since become convinced that they are deep undercover for a clandestine organization. The two of them had had some weird encounter with the Fuzz that led him to believe that there was some truth to what he had assumed was his friend of 20 years having a bi-polar episode. All we know for sure is that it really adds to the mystique…

Hex and Scandal

Mormons are special people. Typically repressed and horny as hell, their sexual escapades can be amusing. An LDS family used to live down the street from me. Husband, wife, three sons and one daughter. Their oldest son was in my Sunday school class, and his dad was our Boy Scout leader, so I knew the family well. They were straight laced Mormons who towed the line to a point of excess, even by Mormon standards. I remember they had a storage room in their house containing a year’s worth of…

I Need Advice for a Perzine

So I'm preparing writings for a perzine and I was just wondering, what makes a perzine? The one I'm making is composed of ranting posts and random thoughts (like taking a shower thoughts) on Tumblr. Some are long and some are like two or four sentences long. But when I write stuff, it's like a journal, but I often question myself. I often wonder if my memory is right or if I misinterpreted something. What's an ideal length for a perzine? What if it's too personal? I often feel like I'm…

I'm stuck. Any Ideas?

So I made the basic layout outline and the fill-in for issue 1, like, months ago. ISE/IDC is a Music/I guess Political zine that focuses on ALL music that is, in my opinion, worth listening to, not restricted by genre, and then my rants on problems going on in the world. Some local, some... not, I guess.

So in between the musical part and the political part, there are 2 pages that only serve as transition. One page is completed, but I have no clue for the second one. I can't figure…

California’s Central Valley was once considered the methamphetamine capitol of the world. This made growing up in Modesto interesting as cookers and users were everywhere. Your boss, co-workers, landlord, next door neighbor, etc. were all equally likely to be involved with the substance in one way or another. Although I'm not sure of our current status in the drug monopoly, in the 1990's Modesto, Sacramento and San Diego all shared the "Meth Capitol" moniker. It's uncertain which city was…

Eulogy for Apartment #3

Today, as I was leaving for work, a funny smell hit me as I walked out the door. A rot of some sort. I pinched my face and went about my morning.

They moved in down the hall about two months ago. Like a summer storm, their fights were shrouded shouts that exploded and then went away.

What I like about living here is that people don’t get in your business. We coexist. Don’t get me wrong, the people who live here will say Hi to each other once in a while but the language and skin…
