The new issue of Asswipe is out and chronicles a short tour that my band Pink Pile went on with the band Kitten Forever. Inside is a call-out on PORK magazine and our experiences travelling the northwest from my point of view. Includes drawings, short essays, zine reviews, and is 36 pages long.
The other zine is a one-off called VACATION. It has mostly quick sketches and a few revealing diary entries towards the end. It's a zine about how a vacation is sometimes never really a vacation. 30 pgs long.
Each zine can be purchased by sending $2-3 (concealed cash) to my address:
PO BOX 1241
Oakland, CA 94604
or email firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions. Back issues of Asswipe (#'s 1-6) can also be purchased for $2-3ppd each.
It's been awhile since I've written here and that's mostly because I wanted to wait til I finished ASSWIPE #7, which will be out later this month. In the meantime, I'll be tabling at LA Zine Fest this Sunday with all past issues of ASSWIPE, numbers 1-6, with some cool t-shirts and buttons. I wish I had pictures but my camera does not allow me to send picture messages. Come find me if you're there.
I also quit Maximum Rock N Roll to focus on my zine and band and maybe even publishing a "book." I'd also like to start painting and drawing more.
I'm excited to work on ASSWIPE #8 because it will be full-sized, with columns and other stuff, like a real magazine (but still totally a zine), so if you'd like to contribute or want to be a columnist or if you want me to review anything you make, please send it my way.
I've been really inspired by this Anarcho punk band from the 80's. Their music rules and so does their artwork so I thought I'd post a 'lyrik book' that I found off this blog, cuz that's what the internet is for, right? Check em out.
