03-Aug-2014Broken Pencil reviews Koogmo #6
The fine folks at Broken Pencil have reviewed Koogmo #6. (Thanks, Joshua!)
“Contributors include prisoners in Utah, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Texas, plus one excellent article by a woman not in prison (identified only by her Twitter handle: @lolotehe) on the misery of working only one day at a 7-11.
“The inmates’ contributions range from intense to […]

14-Dec-2013Vikon Joe reviews Koogmo #7
Another thumb’s down vote for the new format of my zine. This one from my buddy Joe (“the old record guy”) at Vikon Village. Found this note left by him at my store today. He’s been a regular reader of my zine since I opened up shop last January.
Sorry, Joe! I’m planning to stick […]
13-Dec-2013Xerography Debt reviews Koogmo #5
“Koogmo readers are a smart, wise-ass bunch with wry commentary on American consumerist culture.”
Indeed they are! Also, many of my readers are doing hard time in the big house.
As usual….more criticism of the low-tech stapled-in-the-lefthand-corner format. Calling it a “cheater zine.” The nerve! Sorry, folks, but I’m keeping it that way. It’s just easier […]

Another fine write-up (this one for Koogmo #5) in the latest issue of Maximum Rocknroll #364:
19-May-2013What reviewers are saying about Koogmo
“[T]he writing is good and the content is typically engrossing. Most issues have a wide variety of content, however this issue happens to be an exception. It starts out with some journal entries where you get a real feel for Anthony’s view of the world. His view is either unique or he just writes about […]

We are not Luddites, but prefer a multi-dimensional approach to communication through participatory art. Collages lumpy with audio/visual fragments of the art-lives of others physically exist as do we. So, to quote the philosopher, O. Newton-John, “Let’s get physical.” Blogs and email are tools of gangster Frakenstein […]

Collection of listings for mail art, zines, and cassette tape trading. Love these kinds of zines where you get a ton of stuff packed into a small amount of space and pages. The last half is a review zine called Pukka Joint Massif with a lot of commentary […]
24-Aug-2012Maximum Rocknroll reviews Koogmo #2
San Francisco’s venerable punk magazine, Maximum Rocknroll, reviews Koogmo #2 in their latest issue. They were even kind enough to send me a complimentary issue. I feel as if I’ve been spat on by Aaron Cometbus. Woo-hoo.
If you’ve been publishing zines for a while, you’ll start to feel a little like the Grateful Dead, playing […]
17-Aug-2012review: “Quanah” Damascus Knife from DealSergeant.com
This is a Damascus knife I ordered from DealSergeant.com. Pretty cool piece of steel. Got it on sale for $60US.
From Deal Sergeant’s product description:
Quanah Parker (1850-1911) was among the last of the free-ranging Comanche warriors who once terrorized the high plains. Parker ascended to the rank of war chief through brave acts in almost constant […]

My latest find. Picked it up at a roadside junk shop in Dallas for $20.
22-Jun-2012two-cent movie review: Prometheus
Ridley Scott’s latest effort has been getting its fair share of nit-picks by the nitwits on the Interwebs. Some of it obviously biased, some likely deserved. (Strangely, IMDB gives it 7.7 out of 10 stars.) Unwilling to buy into the group-think mentality and not giving half a rat’s ass about what critics have to say, […]
