oi oi girl . . . i got a letter and some badges and some patches and some stickers and a whole bunch of stuff for you . . . but i'm also within a week of getting the next wiseblood out . . . so i just want you to know that i am thinking of ya and will get your letter answered to ya and al sort of stuff this next week including the new wiseblood!
you are so awesome. Got your letter today. and your fantastic zine. I will write how I like it in my letter to you. so strange that I can write you on here but also send a letter. Letters are so wonderful. Thank you for yours . . . with all my heart! We won't have to communicate on here anymore . . . we got the postal system!
No worries Kimberly. As a dead end yob, as you say over there, I don't have a lot to do . . . still the depression has been brutal. 2 deaths . . . and if they come in three's, as they say, I expect another one . . . that sort of thing really messes me up . . . so even with lots of time I can only make it out of bed for a while to try and get a few letters worked on. And you being in school . . . well . . . schooling is a lot of work.
Nice names for cats Kimberley! My little precious is orange and white.
How do you listen to music with no tape player and no c.d. player. Do you have a record player? Have you heard the great Seattle grunge/punk band Catbutt?
When I get low like this I like to listen to your band the Toy Dolls. Their silliness gives me a lift.
Yeah . . . Kimberley . . . sometimes it's awful hard to foster. Your home pals (animals) don't like to get their life disrupted. I have meant to get something posted to you but these last 6 days have been truly insane. If anything could go wrong it certainly did.
I'd like to know if you have a tape player . . . I want to make you a tape of some rare grunge stuff I have (I grew up in the suburbs of seattle you know) but I only have the vinyl. I don't know how to make c.d.s. But I don't I have some c.d's I'd like to put in the post to you.
I should say I love Cocksparrer's "running riot" but in actuality I like a song off this modern c.d. another British pen pal sent me. The name of the c.d. is Here We Stand.
My fave band of all times is British . . . The Vibrators. But the best punk band that ever was is an American band from Michigan called the Crucifucks.
My cat . . . though she's a she . . . is named after your Charles Dicken's character . . . Pip . . . she and I send a Cheerio and toodlepip from America.
oi! oi! oi! what is it with you limeys and your goddamned cocksparrer and "England belongs to me"? we all know England is America's lap dog . . . England belongs to us! we tell you all to jump and you ask how high!
no no . . . I tease . . . just teasing you . . .
It would be a privileged and a pleasure to be your e-mail pal. My address is 1304 175th Pl. NE, Bellevue, WA 98008. I will send a letter a bunch of zines and some stickers and patches and . . . well . . . if there's anything from the states you want you let me know. I look forward to our next encounter being by the good old god bless 'em postal system. The only real way people should communicate!
Oi! you Brit! Did you ever get a pen pal? My name is Fishspit and I put out Wiseblood. You can find me on here. I have been unable to hold down a job for years! I'm a mental cripple. I love animals and have an adopted goat named Bucky and a cat named Pip. I spend my days volunteering for NAMI (National Association on Mental Illness) and listening to records of which I got thousands and thousands of. If you want to trade letters and music and stickers and stuff you let me know.
You say you like grunge. I could blow your mind with a few stories. I saw Nirvana when they played a dorm room at my college in Olympia Washington. I live in the suburbs of Seattle. But I don't like the long hair stuff myself. I like your short hair hooligan ruck and roll like the Cockney Rejects.
Anyway, you write back if you wanna send mail to each other,
