Tim Scannell, R.I.P.

I'm sorry to have inform everybody that Tim Scannell died on September 24, after a 9-year battle with cancer. A family member e-mailed me today about it.

Tim initiated a trade with me and we traded a few times afterward. Behind his often spontaneous and candid comments, and eccentric style of expression, there was a kind person. I didn't know him well, but was glad to known him as papernet pal.

Tim's address should be easy to find on this site. Some of you may…

The Joey Torrey Story



My name is Joey Torrey, former pugilist and enforcer. I am in need of representation to tell this remarkable story. I've been requesting to the Department of Justice for a criminal investigation delving into Operation Matchbook, a federally funded government investigation focused on organized crime and fixing prizefights. This covert operation ran from the gold shores of Costa Rica's…

Anti-Internet Rant 355,000,000.2: My Complaint to the USPS

Your options don't apply, but your automated system forces me to choose one. The name and address was correct and was delivered to the right place. My package was severely damaged.

My package from Vitacost, received Friday, Sept. 3, opened today, was very beat up. The items---vitamins, instant tea, soap and toothpaste, were covered in dust. The liquid soap's lid was half-unscrewed and leaking over the other items. The plastic tea jar was cracked, leaking and mixing with the…

To the Pen Pals Group

Okay. I hope this isn't inappropriate or bad netiquette or anything, but I tried to "message" Hibou, the Pen Pals group owner, but it said I had to "be friends" first. I know this sounds ridiculously antiquated and cranky, but I have a problem with the whole "friending" thing on the Net, because I feel it trivializes and automates the ancient and organic institution of "friendship". Please allow an old fossil his Victorian quirks.

Sooooo.....I'm contacting Hibou this…

Syndicated Zine Reviews Blogspot & Etsy: Comments and Questions

I got back from the University library a little while ago where I did one of my occasional web document printings. One was of Syndicated Zine Reviews Blogspot, 2009 and 2010 so far. I was pleased I was able to do this. In the past, when I'd tried, the print preview always came up blank, which made me assume it wouldn't work, but I realize now you just have to wait a little while for the pages to come up.

2009 was 19 pages (sides not sheets). The library charged 3.6 per…
