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,

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,

I am glad you get a new view each time you look at it, the same thing kind of happens while creating them I'm excited that it comes through that way. I would love to trade again! I'll message you when I get my first zine of 2014 finished!

ah hell Kari . . . I got a new wiseblood coming out . . . and in the back it has a nod to Shards as being the wittiest zine ever written.  If you only knew how much I love Shards!

I was already panicking about the possibility of not having any cool stuff in the mail once back from the holiday break--- your message has saved my soul---

here it is: Francesca Alì / Maupertuusplein 1-860 / 3584 EE Utrecht / Netherlands. 

I may as well write the address here,as today I found an other mouse in my cabinet that made me reflect on how the privacy of this house is very relative anyways.

thanks for reaching out on this corner of the world (too!) xx

oh Kari Tervo . . . don't you even worry about it.  I'm just happy there's a whacky chick down there in Hollywood writing the funniest zine in the world.

Fishspit out.

it warms my heart to get a message from you again. i figure youre really busy.

it's a little sad we put off issue #115 of slingshot but we will have it out by the LA zine fest...i plan to be there.

oh spoiler alert...new asswipe hit the streets this week. not quite toilet paper quality...wait why am i advertising other people's work...well im proud to be near people making cool shit...even though i just squander my creative leanings farting around on the computer...OH YOUTH DO NOT DO WHAT I HAVE DONE

hello there (: I have pictures up finally from the zine fest I threw that you donated such great work too! Would you want to trade your latest zine for mine?

At 11:47am on November 21, 2013, fishspit said…

Oh Kari . . . you're a pistol.

I'd have another Wiseblood out if that son of a bitch would quit smoking dope all the time and get drawing.  Goddamned devil-weed!  And here I live in a goddamned state that legalized the stuff!  But he is my best pal . . . so I better not talk too hard on him.

I think I'll write you a letter.  But don't stand next to the mailbox just yet Kari . . . when it gets so grey up here like it does I can only function in fits and starts.

I send you my regards

59! 59 of the goddamned things! Oh Kari, it's just because I'm old (and in the way) and seem to court trouble wherever I go and so have plenty to write about. Oh!  And insomnia . . . insomnia helps a lot. 

Your my source for the scene down there because I'm so out of touch.  The lady who cuts my hair started talking about these Kardashians . . . I thought she was talking about a sweater line. 

Imagine all the weird shit you're gonna see and experience by time Shards gets to #59.

Actually, you'll probably be writing for People by then.

I send this with adoration,
