Today was pretty sweet. When to Motown and got to see where all the greats recorded. Found a cool record store and picked up some Detroit originals. Ate at Slows BBQ even though I don’t eat meat. Awesome okra/pea fritters and fake chicken sandwich. Got Mirrored Mitten Volume #1 in Astro Coffee in the Corktown section of Detroit in the free reading bin. Saw a neighborhood gone terribly wrong. Finally, I realized that Detroit loves corned beef. Who knew? Good first full day. Tomorrow: Dream Cruise down Woodward Avenue and a wedding.
Wrote a poem today about Anime and why it’s awesome. It will be the dedication section for Mirrored Mitten Volume #2. Not sure how my expansive fan base will take it, but I have to do it. The world must know that Anime is indeed a form of organized crime (Refused reference). But seriously, it’s awesome. I’ve been stuck on Sgt. Frog, which is awesome plus this weird one called Chobits where everyone’s personal computer is an actual robot and of course people keep falling in love with their computers cause their cute. Plus there’s tons more. Just finished Samurai Champloo, which was fuckin amazing. And I can go on and on. But yeah, wrote a poem, it’s pretty sweet. Get ready for the next volume!
I’ve been all spinny the past two days. I think it might be vertigo. How wonderful, right? Anyway, if you’re wondering what it’s like, imagine a fun night of just a bit too much drinking and when you get home you’re silly buzz has now turned into a spinning room. That’s me for two days and I never got the fun buzz part. Oh well.
So, I decided to put this zine together for selfish reasons. I always liked writing, but it stressed me out. The answer for me is to simply write whatever the fuck I want. Not much stress with that attitude, I think. Anyway, Volume #1 is done and has been out for a bit. I give them away at my band’s shows. So if you see Uncontrolled playing and you like punk, I can give you a copy at the show. Otherwise, just email me. I’ll get one to you.
Volume #2 will be out this September. It’s almost done and I like it so suck it.
