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.
I wrote you a letter a couple days ago. Then, sure enough, before I could print it, everything froze and the thing was erased. I need to try it on paper next time, but my handwriting is deplorable. Anyway, part of the gist was Wiseblood is outrageous and I loved the mental health issue. There was this guy who was bored at this thing I was at, so I gave him that issue. He was cackling over there in no time. I, on the other hand, was stuck with an industry type who was saying things like, "Now, if I had stayed in Chicago, I would have been a really big fish in a little pond. But, I wanted an actual shot at fame, so I came to LA." Next time I will bring two issues of Wiseblood.
Hey! friends for sure, thank you so much for the zines and donation! i recieved it couple of days ago! i'm sending you my zine soon! was reading the hole night.. really moved by the stories, sorry for my english, but yea .. is there a way i can subscribe ? i was staying in seattle for a couple of months last year, beautiful city, too bad i knew no one there. peace!
