the stickers are an assortment..some I did make like quit awhile ago. Some are other people's work but I collect them and send them to cool penpals.
I'm glad you got the newspaper...you should get the next three issues(over the year) and when the "subscription" runs out as noted on your mailing label just contact the collective (email,letter,phone) to renew. I'm curious what articles you will enjoy
hello . . . well . . . me and Jessie read your zine in bed during our protest and we love it. Jessie's smarter than me so she really dug it. I thought it was going to be rebellious little zine and so I put on a Conflict record . . . a punk band from my youth I like. But when we opened it and read "stillness" Jessie told me to turn the record off that we were gonna read it in silence. It's a spiritual little masterpiece and I hope more people read it. It's time to quite doing stuff . . . making buildings, buying crap, and paying 2000 dollars for a football seat when people in the Phillipines are still burying their dead and trying to find some clean water. We're doing ourselves to death. I'm a pessimist so I don't think we are going to make it. But good old nature is so much bigger than us and she'll do just fine. It just hurts a lot to see such fine creatures disappear. Anyway I hope you get a lot of readers. This is important stuff. I send you love from Babylon.
you're right. Vanessa was the one who transfered all the articles to our website. It's a lot of work and she gets stressed out & distracted easily. If i can I will relearn how to post the articles and add my pitiful review. thanks for your patience
hup! hup! I got the new zine today! But i'm saving it! Me and my gal are gonna spend Sunday in bed having a "bed-in against the stupidbowl" (like john and yoko with their bed-in for peace) and it'll be nice to look over the fabulous zine as other folks watch that stupid shit on their t.v.. Fuck football, get frisky, smoke angel dust and if you get a chance check out the kitten half time show during the puppy bowl. Keep on trucking! Fishspit sends you love!
I'll enjoy it! You better believe I will! Just this morning me and my gal were going over the last one talkin' on how heavy (or light -- certain pieces were! I told you all about it in a letter coming with the next wiseblood which will arrive soon!
yeah. I got your message like 5 hours too late so i just used the tumblr address.
We will send you a copy of the paper..it will probably make it to you by mid february. But it will likely be on the slingshot web page in about a week and a half. I wish i had spent more time on writing the review of your wonderful zine. But your mail came in after one of the deadlines(we extended the first one which caused a bit of confusion) I hope you get good responses from it.
I really appreciate you sending me your work, and I hope you keep cracking away at creating imagery.
so . . . my girlfriend opens my mail . . . as she often does . . . and I get home and she says, "you have to see this magazine you got! it is soooo awesome!" I looked at the cover and I said, "I kinda remember trading for this one." But she said, lay down boy . . . and we put some Mingus on the stereo and we went through every page and she pointed out all kinds of things . . . and . . . well . . . hell . . . we thought your zine was beyond fantastic. I had so much fun looking and reading it.
I want you to know that we are now big fans.
I send you warmest regards and thank you for such a wonderful zine.
the copy of #11 got to me and i'm putting together a last minute review for Slingshot. Um...the back cover only lists your address with the tumblr...should we only list that or should I add the Broad St. that is on the envelope. Unless i hear from you by jan 13th @ 6pm we will just print the tumblr account.
I hope you're doing well, it's exciting to be working on a paper again and the world outside our offices is sunny and beautiful
Hey, so you and New Hearts New Bones #11 inspired me to make my very first collage! Or at least, my very first since like 3rd grade, when my design was too ambitious and i used wayyy too much Elmer's glue. This one is for my first micro zine! Thanks for the inspiration. I'll send the micro zine along with my next trade.
