Been a while, hasn't it? Sorry 'bout that. You know the power of chaos... Anyway, it's 1995 now and another chance to get my shit together, make this zine a little more regular (time-wise at least) and catch up on my correspondence... This issue (and all those to come, I hope) has more writing in it although I'm a firm believer in the power and eloquence of clip art. Another new feature is Jo Walston's dictionary brainchild which can be found scattered throughout the pages of this publication: we will start with the letter A.
What with the holidays (Jenworld translation: lost of old friends in town), a two-week trip to Chicago, and my awful sense of time and it's passing, I cannot possibly sit down and write about all of the things that have happened to me in the past few months, so this will be a very scattered, schizophrenic read. Love it.
All my love straight to you, baby, Jennifer.
This here's the front of a postcard I got that was made outta a photo. Ed The Cat wrote me requesting a zine. (Sorry it took me so long to write back, Ed.) This is the 2nd animal picture I've gotten in the mail. How odd.
I read your 'zine. It was quite entertaining but I must get something off of my chest... the Satans suck!! They just don't know rock-n-roll. Till next time, Flo
Thanx fer ritin', Flo. Yer so elliqint it herts. The Satans fan club address is in the Rekkerds section, I'm sure they'd love to hear from ya.
Here is some fan mail I got soon after I put out my last issue. I'm so glad to know there's someone out there who cares enough to write. And it's so witty. Wipe your butt with this, asshole. :)
Jennifer (Dumbass) Starting off, this is definetly fucking hate mail. Your 'zine (Geek Weekly) blows so fucking hard. You fuck, I mean, write something that all of Austin doesn't already know! Also, in response to the dumb cunt that wrote the letter in #2, I would like to say that I was aiming for her twat when I sprayed the pepper mace at her lame ass 7 year dyke show. What I'm getting at is I hope you continue to keep putting out these shitty zines because the cost of toilet paper is getting high.
