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!------
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.
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!
