HEY! :-))  I gave a copy of shards to a friend of mine just the other day woowoo--- PET RAT'S NOT DONE YET, I've written most of it but I still have to get the drawings AND some layout so it will be like 2 months (4 exams in the meantime). Sooner or later I'm just gonna put my lecture notes in it and make a zine out of that

I'll let you know my new address as soon as I know it myself then

thanks for your message & I hope yr well!!

Wow, thank you! That's great! By the way, I'm a stammery mess when it comes to public speaking, so anybody on the planet could read 'em better than me. Thanks so much for your nice words :)

"Brightline" zine looks good. Would love to trade with you when I get more copies of New Hearts New Bones #14 printed up here in a few days (:

That's perfect! I like the symmetry of us both reading them . . . I'll definitely be up for trading again in the future, although I am awfully slow at making zines. Thanks again for sending it! :) I hope some celebrities cross your path soon so you can write up the encounters next time!

Hi Kari,

I got your zine today! I don't know why exactly, but Onomatopoeia made me smile. Luigi Board made me laugh, but pants. totally cracked me up! I laughed so hard my roommate peeked in to find out what was going on. It's a great little zine! 

As soon as I've got something else to trade, I'll definitely trade with you again!

I'm glad you liked GADZooks! I'll have to check out Dream Water. It sounds vaguely familiar but I don't recall having seen it before. 

Thanks again!

Hey Kari. I'm waiting for my dinner and in the meantime I decided to gulp down your zine in one sitting. I really enjoyed it. I didn't know what was coming next, it was great! (Also, I too am suspicious of people with perfect eyebrows.)

Hi Kari! Great to hear from you, I've been meaning to read Shards for a while now, so I'd love to swap for any issue you have. Thanks so much! :)

Hi dear kari .  . . i'm trucking along . . . what were the big exams that took us away form you for so long. 

your party was a smash.

I got wiseblood   #61 done and am just waiting for alex to the cover art.  He's low.

I look forward to another copy of shards . . . . but life gets in the way and you gotta take a that life stuff . . . presently I'm working 5 days a week at a counseling center for the indigious (sp) . . . poor people and it's taken a lot of life out of me.  I haven't done much new writing.  I'll get back to it when I get this Counseling center's system down.

I send you lot o love and hope you find time to keep putting out that masterpiece by the name of Shards!

I misss you,

Ha ha ha  . . . Kari it was awesome!  As is the new Shards!  I made all the women wear dresses or they couldn't come, and not to be sexist all the dudes had to be in ties at least . . . a suit preferably.  God it's pathetic in this day and age that few dudes have stylin' ties and/or suits.  I looked as good as a Jamaican Rude Boy from 1966. Cocktails were served and I insisted on doing all the reading. No nerds showed up as was evident that we all pretty much failed the "word nerd" game. I think I'm the least of the nerds because everyone knew the kobe Bryant one except I thought he played for the Chicago Bulls. My favorite piece was "women on a stick."  Everyone agreed the best line was "The chubby little prairie ddog dies a thousand internal deaths, takes the fabric, an galumphs back to her den, vowing she will never leave again."

I got shouted down once when I went on a rant that Sheryl Crow was an evil harpy. 

Other than that, the liquor cost was astronomical . . . but no one got sick . . . and most of the hour durvs (hell, I don't know how to spell that one!) were pretty good.

Sending you love from my room where I will be hiding until all this goddamned football hype is over!

Fishspit out!

P.S. I said "kike their ass" . . . with as much trouble I get in with people calling me a racist,  I need to make sure that you know I mean "kick" their ass.

Kari!  The Shards party is gonna be Friday!  It better be a good one because I ain't read it yet, and here I'm gonna read it out loud! ha ha .  . . but Jessie got all excited about it.  We're gonna have it at her place and it's gonIna have killer cocktails!  Including Absinthe!  And that shit cost a hundred bucks a bottle!  This Shards better be good! ha ha ha . . .   I know you like techno . . . but Jessie is a jazz buff  . . . so I think it's gonna be more mingus and coltraine than anything else as I read.  But hey, I'm a tough guy . . . anybody boo's ya . . . I'll kike their ass.   I'll write you all about it!  Unforunaetly you'll have to wait to Monday as Jessie has no internet . . . ha ha ha . . .

No!  Everyone coming has read Shards before . . . so it should be a good scene . . . but . . . well . . . if it turns in to a riot  . . . like when they performed Sravinsky's "Rights of Spring" for the first time . . . .well . . . you are paying the damages!


Sending Love, Fishspit out!

Hi Kari! Thanks so much for your words!  They mean a lot to me!  I just got the new Shards in the mail today!  I'm heading over tomorrow to my gal's place and will read it while we are having our "bed in against the superbowl."  When I get back I'll tell you all about what I think of your Shards! ha ha . . . Yup . . . I don't think much of football, but this city is in the super bowl and people are acting really stupid.  I'm too scared to protest out in front of the stadium (those people are dangerous) so I'm protesting from bed.  Remember how back in the hippy days john lennon and yoko had their "bed in for peace?"  Well me and Jessie are having a bed in against the superbowl.  But we decided to start tomorrow.  Jessie just got laid off too . . . so we are gonna stay in bed for a week protesting, drinking, and having people over.  She don't have a computer or a television so we'll be out of touch with the world.  I kind of wish she had a t.v. so we could watch the puppy bowl.  My favorite part is the kitten half time show.  I saw the Madonna half time show a couple years ago and that was pretty wild . . . but hey!  the kittens give her a run for her money.  I actually did something pro-woman Kari!  I kept seeing these shirts and signs and flags up here that would say "12" or "12 Man!"  I finally asked Jessie, "What the hell does that mean anyway?!"  I guess in football they allow 11 men on the field . . . up here they are calling the crowd the 12th man.  So I made a sign for Jessie's window that says, "What about the 12th woman!"

Any way, I'll write you soon . . .

Thanks again,

Kari Tervo . . . you are my hero.

Thanks for that review . . . I loved everything about it.

You are a goddess  . . .

Hey Kari!  Wiseblood #60 is done.  I just got to get to the copy shop.  I stand by the mail box every day waiting for my Shards!  When a fella (me) is down in the dumps, well . . . Shards is the best remedy.  I have received hundreds of zines over the years . . . and I have never read one as witty and funny. 

Ha ha ha. . . . you said, "I walk" in your e-mail.  Yeah, I'd walk too if I hit as many cars as you have . . . ha ha ha . . .

Even if you win the lottery and brought all your pals down, you wouldn't be able to see me, well . . . maybe if you could get some incredibly powerful benzodiazipines. 

OK . . . A Shards is coming!  I have a feeling it'll get here today . . . I better get out there and wait by the post box.

Ah hell Kari!  I just lost my job because I'm a budget cut.  I'd put a bullet in my head I'm so tired of the ridiculousness of it . . . but I get happy to know that you is in the world and Shards is in the world and that kind of thing keeps me going.  I'd like to come down there and visit you . . . but you know what Kari, I have a fear of travel!  It's the damnedest thing.  Once I get e about  5 miles out of town I have a panic attack and have to turn around.  So you keep me informed on what is going on down there in that crazy town and I won't feel so sad I can't visit it.

I send you love,
