James, I got your latest Junk Zine, and am very grateful for it.  I have a new addy once again, the old one is now solely inhabited by my ex wife... I will be writing soon, and sending you a little something you've been wanting that I happen to have.  Your zine also got me a few contacts as well.  Thanks for staying in touch.

-Paul, Arcane Angles

James,

Sorry for being so late in replying.  I recently divorced, moved, and got attacked by a crazy girlfriend!  I will be writing back soon.  Hoping to still get a letter of comment on my first zine. 

Best regards,

Paul

James! I am like panicking right now because I just got a HUGE box of mail that had been sitting in the back of the post office since July (see my blog post)! THANK YOU so much for your Zines for Troops! donation! I'm still in the middle of processing several months of mail, but I wanted to acknowledge your donation ASAP. I'll be sending you your buttons and adding you to the Honor Roll soon.

Hi James, I know you interact a lot with prisoners. I'm sure you already know that a lot of stuff gets refused at prisons, but here's a new concern about sending zines to prisoners. It would probably be a good idea for zinesters to leave off stickers and other cool-looking add-ons when sending to certain prisons: http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/57053440-78/mail-galetka-letters-prison.html.csp

Hi James! I have a confession: I'm starting an online-only zine review thing. I know how you feel about the internet, and wanted to let you know I have your concerns in mind. I am a dedicated fan of the papernet, and am hoping to encourage more people to participate in it. Keep on keepin' on with all your hard paper work! (which sounds like paperwork, but is infinitely cooler) --Kari

Hey James,

I haven't forgotten about you.  Going through some major changes, including a move.  My letter to you is basically complete, but I am hoping to wrap up Issue #2 of Arcane Angles so I can include that when I send some snail mail your way.

P.S. I moved your comment to the page announcing the project. So if it looks unapproved, it's not--I just copied it and pasted it to what I thought was a better home. :)

Hi James. Thanks for writing with your thoughts about my project. I know you are a pacifist, and that's part of the reason I asked you to participate. It has always interested me that, as a pacifist, you provide a voice for prisoners, many of whom have performed violent acts. So, in what appears to be a respect for all comers as human beings, I thought you were a natural fit to contribute to the leisure time of military members and injured veterans. On that note, I agree with your complaint about the vague promises of "support" to troops. That's why I offer something specific: A contribution to more satisfying leisure time, which is important for overall well-being. As a bonus, that contribution is also intellectual and, often, shares a perspective that might not often be heard in the military. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, and I would welcome your contribution of any size. I'm sure it would be received with interest, and maybe get you some more letters for your postal fix!

I thought you might find this interesting. This is a perzine I did about a demonic experience I had that led me to Christianity. True story. I used to be on the borderlines of agnostic and atheist, and I was raised Buddhist, but this experience led me to God. I know now that Jesus Christ is real, and He certainly answers our prayers. Demons are also real, and deliverance ministries (all over the world) work to exorcise them out of people who have them through the occult and other sins. 

It's a very short zine, I hope it qualifies as one. You can read the PDF form here: The%20Incubus%20a%20testimony.pdf

Hey, I just want to let you know I got your envelope today! Rad! I'm sitting down to read them right now. My stuff for you is enveloped up and I'll mail it on Monday! Have a great weekend.

At 5:38pm on March 13, 2013, Kari Tervo said…

Hey James--any new stuff lately? I want to read your thoughts! Always insightful and a lot of times on unexpected topics. Gimme a fix! I'll send you Shards #7 and #8 (my humor zine) in return. I think you'll especially like #7. People keep telling me it's "smart," which I think means they thought it was too wordy (it is), but I think  you would like it.

Hi James.  I was happy to receive your packet the other day.  I read everything, not just the highlighted passages (although I thank you for your consideration in that).  As someone who drinks up little bits of knowledge and ideas, I found your thoughts to be educational and thought-provoking. I mean, I had never considered that vegans--with some moral high ground positions--are not faultless with regard to environmental destruction.  As far as the highlighted passages go, your piece on neologism development and its relation to your social class was particularly striking. There's no way you could have known when you directed my attention to that piece, but I also come from lower middle class beginnings.  I managed to earn a Ph.D. despite what you might predict, partly because school was regarded somewhat reverentially in my family (and lower middle class work ethic a big contributor).  These factors make for a fluid cultural identity that I can't exactly say is a plus, though it's nice not to be summarily passed off as either a rube or an elite.  Nice to find another person with similar experiences.  You have both a tacit and empirical experience of the workings of social class in America, and I think your matter-of-fact voice is important.

Hi, in answer to your query about mimeograph lore, you might want to check out my Facebook page called Mimeograph Users Group. Bunch of pictures, sometimes people comment.

James, may I just mention that you are continuously a great resource for the papernet/zine/mail art community, thank you so much. I admire your work.

Thank you, I appreciate it. Sorry if I sent too much...I enjoy mail.
