It’s the first day of “fishing season” here in eastern Cali-for-nigh-Ay the wind is blowing and there is new snow sur les montagne !! Who cares . . .

Seriously . . . here’s a new zine . . . content is from the 2CH BBSkanji translations, some dada influence and my acid mind . . . images are of the dummy paste-up.

Since I don’t read kanji, I was selecting blocks of text randomly, based on bits of English in the BBS thread heading.

The NEW 8 page bible – the zine . . .

This started in the 1980’s . . . the era of Postal madness, adrift in the clamor of moving letters, parcels and machinery, moving whatever people wanted to send to relatives, businesses and the like, this included cremated remains of relatives in cardboard boxes that on more than one occasion were crushed and broken in transit, spilling their contents inside the canvas mail sacks . . .

oh shit, looks like all the “dirt” on the culling belt is somebody . . .!!

And the conveyor belt was stopped while we tried to recover as much of the gray sand as we could, and then looked for the sack that held the rest of the poor soul who had just been scattered unintentionally over the length of the belt.

Here’re some pics of the revival of my first zine . . . the photos are of the dummy.

The flagged text above was layered with previously printed text.

The text below was printed over the text pictured above and overlaps some of the text printed on the first pass through the copier.

re: the zine . . .

I made a few hard copies of the zine . . . there are a lot of changes in the second stat.e of the zine.

The zine “OVP in 21st Century” is a manifesto . . . the letters OVP are the first letters from Owens Valley Paiute, and with that said here’s the the second state of the zine.

zine . . .

O.K. All 8 pages of my first “zine” is up on . . . version one of “OVP in the 21st Century (coyote dint shot no bufflo)” . . .

What’s it about?

It’s a rant about political correctness and how academics and “hippies” have fucked up indigenous tribal cultures, creating the “Native American” ethic, I.e. pow wows and spirituality and “sweats” and vision quests . . . whew! Can’t forget the “trickster” mentality . . .

Oh, and before I forget, I’m an Owens Valley Paiute, and like all REAL North American indigenous tribal people I have a tribal enrollment number (is this Nazi Germany?) and I have an I.D. Card with my enrollment number and my photo on it . . . my tribal group is a Federally Recognized Tribe. Check out CFR Title 25 Indians, please note that there is no listing for Native Americans in the Code of Federal Regulations.

Back to the zine . . .

My plan is to self-publish the zine . . . 8 pages of content plus the cover. Preliminary target will be regional museums, visitors centers and book sellers.

The first issue is a work-in-progress so there will several “A/P’s” or “artists proofs” of the issue, much like lithographic editions.

The original pages have been scanned and processed using apps on my iPad, specifically Notability, Pixlr-o-matic and PhotoForge 2.
