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.
James, I'm enjoying Zapomania #4 right now. You're very keen and insightful; you're able to razor in on people's characteristics, like when you break down types of "internetters." You make great observations, and you probably see right through everyone. :) I also liked your observation about "Rude Boy" in Pterodactyl #6. I hadn't noticed that before, but now totally see what you mean. Good stuff!
Hi, James, just wanted to say I enjoyed "Cat's Paws" from LIVE AND LET LIVE. Although it probably wasn't ideal to read late at night! I was wondering if you know of any good zines &/or website for vegetarian/vegan diets? I was one for 5 years a long time ago, in a very bad way, though. I'd like to do it properly this time, with a balanced diet. Thanks for any help!
Thank you for your very generous trade & my first zine in years. I'm hooked on your very charming and informative zine! I wish I could say I've read it all, but my friend borrowed it before I could finish! She is now a fan as well. (I don't want to share, so I'll be taking that back from her later. ha) I'll let her know your site, so she can obtain her own copy!
