Hey man thanks for the kind words! I can't wait for the new Wiseblood. I'm a true fan now for sure, never thought I would like a perzine persay so much. I pick up a lot of different software programs from friends and I picked you up one the other day for transferring albums and tapes to your computer, Check it out at the link I am leaving you and if you want to try it I'll mail it to you in an email. Here's the link to the site: http://www.sound-recorder.biz/index.html
I started a zine review blog where I will review online blogs, zines, distros, etc... I want you to stop by and check it out when you can. I am going to review Wiseblood there soon. Here's the link: http://thezineiac.wordpress.com
(:(:(:(: Thank you so much for that heart warming compliment. I can't wait to finish the zine I am working on meow for you guys to read together and enjoy again I think it is kick ass you will really enjoy it !! Can't wait to trade zines again!
HA I learned a new word ''toasty''; love it. I figure it means warm and you can picture a toast :3 well Genova has very distinct temperatures summer/winter. I think here (holland) it's pretty close to WA. Or at least in my idealistic-dreamy perception of US geography. I'm risking to skip an Italian summer to go freezing in CA again next summer---or maybe I'm going to Cambodia,I don't know yet----ahhh I'm spacing out (like that Shards cover). my zine gets printed next week---then I can write you--- ciao ciao!!!
When I read your comment, I died of laughter lol Think I got the same literary piece of crap in the mail too and glanced at the cover, didn't even read it all the way through. alot of fluff and no substance. That truth you speak of? You are looking for substance and I get that. Thank you for your compliment. It's much appreciated and am looking forward to another wiseblood in the mail!!! :)
Oh noooo! I'm so sorry your job situation sucks. I'd love to hang out too, but you live a million miles away. Mostly, I walk. I'm planning this big thing where if I win the lottery, I'm going to fly everyone in for a big party. I hope your situation turns around. I'm pretty sure good vibes and positive thoughts are functionally meaningless, but maybe they'll help your soul somewhat.
I'm about to send you a recently-published Shards #11! And I just introduced someone to Wiseblood by saying, "Fishspit is a great story-teller, and really something else." Cuz you are really something else! <3
I got yours too! Unfortunately I still haven't listened to your mixtapes yet. I managed to score some really dirty old school hip hop casette tapes, will include it in your next letter. I'm also currently working on a new zine so your next letter would prob be delivered by the end of the month!
Hey please check out my blog post about the mail. . .I am opening it all (you'll see) now and there's a bunch of stuff from you from a while ago! I'm so sorry if you thought I was neglecting a response. Haven't read any of it yet, but I'm like panicking about how many people I've been incommunicado with by accident, so just wanted to throw this out there. :)
Well FS I did a little research and I found the link above to be the most respected FREE way of transferring Albums to CD, so click it and check it out. You can go to Google search and type this: "software for converting vinyl record albums to CD easy and free". That right their will bring you up pages of different programs that will get the job done. The ones you pay for are supposed to be pretty unreal as far as the quality factor goes, so you may want to consider spending a little change in order to get better results with the sound transfer, I don't know, it's up to you buddy ole pal. Sounds like a fun project though and I hope to benefit from all your punk rock goodies you have gathered over the years, HaHa!
Just a quick note about your punk rock cassette tape collection. There is some pretty easy to use FREE software available that I just downloaded. They enable you to record from cassette tape to MP3 then to CD all with just a plug in cable, a tape player and your computer. Shoot me your email and I'll send you a couple download links to check out if you're interested. Peace!
Hey Mr. Fishspit. After reading your zines about a dozen times each at my office in the rest room, I decided to finally start writing the first entries of my Punx In Solidarity zine. First off I should thank you for sending me those zines and for any advice I can squeeze out of you. I immediately ran into the problem of not knowing what software to use to be able to edit, draw and print the zine easily. Do you have the names of a couple of choice programs I should use? I have access to probably anything out there on the market with the use of torrent sites, so fire a couple programs at me that I may need and I'll go hunting, that is if you don't mind the task of mentoring the new kid on the block, Ha! You mentioned art work and drawing, that may be another problem I will have, and that's finding a guy to help me in that area of the publication. I don't think I know anybody who would lend me a hand. I have another question oh Master. How do I print and fold the thing correctly, is their a format to follow, or some folding guidelines I can follow? Again anything you lend me as far as advice goes is so greatly appreciated.
