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
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!
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.
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 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!
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!
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!
