Hey of course. I haven't made any new issues for one year now(but lots of slingshot)...but if you're not worried then i have quite a bit to share. My page has lots of photos of my work--usually with clear descriptive titles (slingshot#111,Absolutely Zippo#44 for example). I can probably send any of what I have photographed. How's Seattle? I can't wait to see your take on it condensed in tape and zine form. I was recently wondering why i haven't met anybody new from WMZ. Some really awesome penpals have been keeping my po box alive these past two years.
In case you didn't see it on my page you can reach me: PO Box 4985
Berkeley CA 94704
and calling 510 BAD SMUT
okay follow the example of the George Jackson Brigade( i say this to replace the normal "take it easy" since you seem one to disparage false cheer)
FIshspit! I just read Wiseblood #59. What a treat. I was in a restaurant cackling over my chicken sandwich while reading it. I want to have a hobo phase and walk along the train tracks, listening to you jaw stories, eating cherry pie stolen from a windowsill. "Beelzebub be Damned" was probably the one that made me laugh the most. Thanks overall for the window into your head!
After your peacock experience, I can see why you are telling me to steer clear of seagulls. You have PTSD--Peacock Traumatic Stress Disorder.
My celebrity-obsessed heart is soo impressed with your Flea story. Dude, Flea bought you a drink. You should get some kind of lapel pin for that.
Thanks for the shout-out on the back inside cover! I'm thinking of starting a new series zine for non-Shardsy stuff and reviews--Wiseblood will definitely be a recommendation as a solid, consistent, hilarious collection! More! More!
I probably have a copy of my old zine as well, I'll send you one:) It has some of my art in it, and stories and stuff...I haven't done one in several years now, but hopefully I will make the time for it soon.
I was raised by hippies and artists :) Woodcarvers and beatniks, as well! And that sounds awesome, I would love to have my work displayed in a coffee shop. I'll pick a few favs and find a way to make copies and send you some!
Hey there! I can't wait to see your zine! I sent a friend request with my address inside it...If you could send it within the next week that'd be great! The review will be in the print version & on the web...hope to receive it soon! <3
I'd love to trade! I'm writing a perzine at the moment about my personal struggle with a severe eating disorder amongst other things. that one's going to be about 40 pages, but it's still under construction. I also have a regular zine called Suburban-Nightmare which is kindof a mismash of all kinds of stuff. Coincidentally, i just released my first ever issue of that one, so i'm still a novice to this.
Let me know which one you're interested in. The perzine won't be sent out until the end of August, but i can send Suburban Nightmare issue 1 in about a week (i'm on vacation.) lemme know.
