Painted our glorious leader onto a new snare skin for my homegirl eggsareamazing's birthday. Hit that drum hard, dude. Hit it hard.
Wtf why are you shitting on Christianity? Some people find comfort in religion and you aren't entitled to call it "rape, murder, and incest with a brief interlude for some magic tricks." I'll pray for you, honey
My bad, I meant to say that the Bible is just rape, murder, and incest with a brief interlude for some divine miracles from our lord and savior jesus fucking christ amen.
"I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel."
My friend catchlove makes a sweet zine. Go see!
If anyone wants a copy of the zine I recently had at TONERPALOOZA you can click on the picture and geddit through etsy.
I’m selling the first issue of my zine “I’m Champagne” a journal about regaining and maintaining self worth and will feature works from myself, Daisy Catterall (keepbrave), Lisa Divissi (lisadivissi), Becky Nosaira (eggsareamazing), Susie Anderson (susiea), Sophie Rasic (uglylittlehologramchildren), Mia Fiorentino (miafiorentino), Ashley Ronning (ghostghost), Yasmin Keany (rosefactory) and Bella Miller (myspysisverige)
My awesome friend eggsareamazing runs an experimental sci-fi zine called Moss Piglet. She was kind enough to put ‘Catstronaut’ on one of the pages. My friends ghostghost, seriousyeah and flammablepancakes wrote and drew for it as well! It’s a sweet read! Go check it!
Goddamn this is one of the best bands ever.
Hey Gemma! I just got mail that had Work In Progress and all your other rad stuff in it! Thank you so much! It's awesome! I bought Vonnecats from your stall at Sticky zine fest earlier this year and thought it was dope. Keep doing what you do!! :) Marcus.
I met Marcus at Tonerpalooza last weekend and he has a great beard! Thanks for buying my stuff and for having a great beard Marcus!
Bagger 258: The “Blue Wonder” -Schipkau, Germany
Bagger 258 is a bucket wheel excavator, or “schaufelradbagger,” built by the heavy machinery company Lauchhammer. First put to use in East Germany in 1964, Bagger 258 was one of a series of such machines whose task was to assist in intensive mining operations.
Bagger 258 was abandoned in 2002, for no better reason than that it had simply run out of things to dig. By this point the behemoth was showing its age, and the cost of dismantling it wasn’t justified by the tired mechanisms on offer. Instead the area around Bagger 258 was replanted, and redeveloped as a solar park.
These days, Bagger 258 stands desolate in a field in Germany. Its blue paint job - now chipped and fading - had once earned it the nickname, “Blue Wonder.”

Hey Melbourne pals, I will be manning a table at Tonerpalooza zine fair! Sunday June 22 at the State Library. Come by and say hello!
A while back I bought a zine called ‘Vonnecats’ which had drawings of cats next to quotes of my favourite author Kurt Vonnegut. I just got another zine and some sweet merch in the mail from the maker of said zine Gemma Flack. She draws awesome illustrations and writes about feminism and the universe and awesome stuff. It’s way cool! Go check her out! Thanks Gemma!
