You can begin with good smart people and an unbound optimism and in no time at all, everything can disintegrate. Threats and blows can fly; men once tame and meek can bloody the faces of friend and stranger. It's pretty fucking cool. -- Mr. Bad
So, like, life's real weird and shit. Oh, and hey, check it out: our server's back up. Woohoo!
But, hey, like I was saying: super-fantastic Patient Joab came out and visited
from Baltimore this week for Webzine99. It was SUPERFANTASTIC, since although he
is a Mainstream Press Flunkey for the Man he is also a ZineMaker extraordinaire,
he was real fun to have around. Oh, and he and El Destino get along real well,
so El Destino is less crabby when Joab's around.
ANYWAYS, my point is that Patient Joab and the Pit Beef Crew from MD are
planning to come to Burning Man again. And this time, he's got an idea for an
art installation. The deal is that they're going to create a GIANT ROBOT on the
edge of the desert, that you can see from way far away but you have to walk a
long time to get to. Then when you walk all that way, and actually get to the
GIANT ROBOT, it says JUST ONE THING to you. I'm not going to tell you what that
one thing is, because that would ruin it, but trust me, it's worth the walk.
So anyways, just after talking to Patient Joab about his GIANT ROBOT, I stumbled
across this crazy Web zine, aptly named -- you guessed it -- GIANT ROBOT. Isn't
that nucking FUTS? It's a crazy zine that I dunno maybe comes out of LA or
something, and it looks like they do a paper zine, too. It's got one of those
funkadelic Pacific Rim Asian hipster themes, but not in a bad way. And it's got
some interesting stuff in it, like pictures of the guy that played Sam on
So, my recommendation is that you WALK THE DISTANCE to GIANT ROBOT.
