The Welcome Wagon

Howdy boys and girls. Welcome to the long-awaited debut of the new Geek Weekly. Although this magazine is still ruled by Jennifer and all the decisions are ultimately hers, she is easily persuaded to accept ideas which are not her own (like writing in the third person, for instance). Therefore, I hereby officially invite you to enjoy the fruits of the labor of several of the most luminous stars in today's punk rock, journalistic, and artistic communities. You will read the writings of the lovely and talented Jackie Belvin (actually an actress by trade); the professional and dignified scribe, Jason Trent, constructs a brilliant and rational diatribe; witness GW's first, tentative steps into the world of the internet (write us at geek@mail.utexas.edu); peruse a long distance contribution from Msr. Jeff Breeze of Columbia (Missouri); Susan and Steve ask all the questions you always wanted to ask the rock stars (and they get answers, too); Jennifer LaSuprema takes you on the road (heh, heh) and she also pastes a lot of crap in the white space so the text is harder to read; contemplate the artistic stylings of world-renowned #2 pencil artist, Timothy Inklebarger; and laugh out loud at the riotous humor of Bill Jeffery's cartooning; and see one of the freakish depictions that only Brian Hindman is capable of (this one looks like Norman fucking Rockwell compared to the rest of his stuff). And more!! I think the incredibly long delay of this issue will be justified herein (just like that kick-ass Grand Royal #2).

Your devoted servant, Jennifer LaSuprema

PS- If it wasn't for that damned Ice Storm '96 this would've been out last July.

PS- Don't forget to order your patented, durable, high-quality, double-stitched, burlap-super-safety-steel-toed-waterproof Geek Weekly merchandise. It's goin' fast.

New: email! geek@mail.utexas.edu

the [[Thinking Fellers Union Local 282]]

the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282

interview by susan and steve @ Emo's in August 1995 some of the questions are ours; some are from a psychiatrist's questioning of an alleged victim of satanic ritual abuse.

GW: I want to know if you've had any interesting encounters with the law in Texas. Hugh: We got pulled over the first time we came here for speeding. It was kind of a speed trap. Anne: It's not all that interesting. Hugh: Yeah. All it was, we came over a hill and Paul, our first drummer, was driving. Was it early in the morning? I think it was. Anne: We'd driven all night. Brian: I thought that was interesting, to me, just because I had been one of the last people driving and I hadn't slept all night, and that whole road on Highway 10, I guess, for many hours was littered with deer and there were deer corpses all over the place. So, by the time this policeman stopped us, I was out of my mind, and he could have easily been anything other than a policeman, too. I couldn't tell what was going on at all. Anne: And we looked like we had been up all night, too, really scruffy and unwashed. I'm really surprised he didn't just tell us to follow him to the police station. 'Cause I've heard that happens, or else they try to get money out of you on the spot, or they run you out of town. GW: Do you have an opinion on whether or not electroconvulsive therapy is good therapeutic practice when used by a licensed psychiatrist? Hugh: I've heard that it's not. I've heard that it's a bad thing
