Participating in the underground press movement of the 1990’s, I edited and published the zines Babelogue and The Crisp Fabric. The subject matter evolved from absolute nonsense to polished pieces of social commentary. I have forged meaningful friendships with writers and artists I have never met.
The photo of Arrokot is from NASA. The “Bass & Pumpkin” portrait is by Stephen Brandt. All other photographs on the main page were taken by me. (The self-portrait on the top of this page was taken at age 26.) My collage work is featured in “Punk in Context.”
Here are some friends whose support along the way has been invaluable:
Eric Bennett • We’ve concocted many crazy schemes through the years. Now, we have something. It’s a paper & ink chapbook called Looking for the Secular Bus.
Jhon Ackerman • We were kids in high school, in a band called Glass of Milk. Jhon now operates the Recording Zone. It’s a state of the art, fully functional, professional studio.
Ann Koi • We corresponded for years before we met. When she visited, we hardly talked. I picked her up at the Greyhound station, and I made the worst driving error.
Jim Shelley • Jim is exceedingly prolific. His output runs the gamut from cassettes, records, CDs, MP3s, and streaming audio. His best medium, though, is performance.

requiem for the rock star fantasy of many, many years ago.
