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.
Hi fish pit! pen pals? I'm also okay with trading zines, stickers and cd playlists. I'm interested in 50s doo wool to 70s rock and roll. I don't do tapes though (no idea how to haha) but am really keen to listen to tapes that you have. Let me know!
Thanks for getting back to me so soon, I wish I could play tapes but I can't sadly, you can send me a list of tracks to check out with the zines! I already put together a snail mail package with my address or would you rather I just message them to you?
my mind was alreadyblown away by yr package+music,then I noticed the name of the band scribbled there,on the side of the tape- ''THE CRUCIFUCKS''. The Crucifucks. now I can't stop to make this resonate in my head….
Those were great Fishspit. They gave me ideas on the approach I want to take in some of my stories and discussions for my future zine publications. If I had pills I would send you some, Ha! Thanks for the zine experience. I hope to stay on your mailing list.
Really,just tourists/foreigners smoke in here in Amsterdam...even I was kind of disappointed.
The patterns on yr zine looked even trippier at candlelight. After you finish a good book you may think that that could be the last one to be that exciting but then you stumble into more cool/creative stuff,like your zine,and that's great. I sent you something in the mail todayyyy (which is Sunday)
Wow, that was quick, I was probably still here trying to familiarize myself with this site. I would love to see your punk zine, this is all new to me and the zine bug has bitten me hard, ha! I would love to pick your brain on getting started, it sounds like you have lots of experience making zines.
