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.

I hope t hear from you soon.

Thank you,

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 already blown 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….

gotta talk to you soon!! :-)

Thank you for calling me a pistol, and please always write  more!

THANK YOU! your kind words really mean a lot!

I'm also going to send it to the person you mentioned. Surprise post is nice.

hurrah! glad it got there. I think the women at the post office are starting to get suspicious about all the far-flung envelopes I keep passing 'em.

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.

Talk to you again soon, thanks!

Hello, nice meeting you here! I am starting a new punk rock zine and am looking for samples from serious zine producers such as yourself, so I would like to take you up on your offer to receive a FREE copy of your zine. So great of you to offer your work like this. Also, I sent you a friend request if that's okay!

Take care and thanks for the consideration.

i sent you an audio response to your comp tapes you sent me. I miss them very much (after listening to it like 5 times). if the post office cheats you out of this burst of culture message me and we will retaliate(smash some windows, flatten some tires...)

Hi Joe! I'm not from Arkansas either- just moved here from Texas, but Little Rock is awesome! And I'm trying to make something happen here. I visited Seattle a few months ago and before I moved here for a job as a librarian I was all but packed for Seattle! I've heard people say that Little Rock is the "Seattle of the South" because downtown- especially the River Market area- was designed to look like a small Pike Place. Despite the stereo types Little Rock is bad ass! I'm just waiting for all the hipsters to find out and storm us!

Due to the new job I haven't had as much time as I would like to work on Zine stuff, but I have been thinking of it and after this week things should slow down enough for me to work on it. I just saw a zine today called Lorem Ipsum and I'm hoping to get in contact with the owner of that and maybe collaborate. I do art mostly, but I can write some too. My husband does more writing than I do- lots of sarcasm. I'll submit some stuff for your zine if you need material. I just did a drawing of an otter with a waynes world hat on drinking moonshine and floating in the water. I'm pretty proud of it. I also do collage a la Winston Smith (of DK fame). 

I'll use your wanting to trade to motivate me to get my shit together and put together another 'zine so we can trade. What I have now is getting stale and old.

Keep in touch Fishspit!

If you want a quicker reply try me at: crowcrumbs@gmail.com

I'm also on instagram as "crowcrumbs"  or "valerie clark" and I take photos of some of my art so you can get a feel for my style if you are interested.

I just sent you a friend request too- accept it buddy!

You know how sometimes something just hits you? I was thinking about zines, and thinking about how you have like FIFTY-SOMETHING ISSUES of WISEBLOOD! I can't even comprehend that. It's like the expansion of the universe.

I'm glad to see that someone read those things on the penpals group !! washington-netherlands 6 days,wow,we could be playing tic tac toe or something. I was so excited to open yr package at the po box that I lost a glove; I found it later in the day though. talk to you soon!------

I just got your letter/zine/tape just now....trying to read it as i was walking down telegraph ave.

um...i sent you a zine and letter last week let me know if it never makes it to you

hey i've been putting full days on the new slingshot so it takes time to do simple things...and even longer for not so simple ones(like booking a show for a visiting act in 2 weeks). Thanks for contacting me. I'm sensing I should ask for music that is somewhat rare. Is there Seattle bands that you know that I should hear? How about some other small town---are you from seattle? Anyways we could hash this out in letter form if you like. Once I get your address I can send you the new Slingshot etc....oops I see your address here on your page. I'll enter it for a sub for Slingshot then.
At 7:59pm on October 2, 2013, robert eggplant said…
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)
