old zines

entry for @saveerasezine! the endgame of undertale’s mercy run was by far the most impactful part of the game for me, so i tried to portray at least a small impression of it.

I made a zine documenting my trip to Puerto Rico and I’m really proud of it.

F I V E  D A Z E:

Five Daze is an ongoing travel zine, documenting the 5 days I spend anywhere each time I travel. 

I spent 5 days in Puerto Rico.
This is what I saw.

In that same class, we had to write papers about our obsessions—the themes and topics and imagery we found ourselves writing again and again. I said that I wrote about music, about punk and other subcultures. About rape, abuse, and mental illness; drugs and booze and cigarettes. I said that most of my characters were outsiders in some way. Most were troublemakers with a distrust of authority figures, most were queer. I said that magical elements often popped up in my stories, even if the story was rooted in real life. I said that I wrote about love—finding it, losing it, trying to make it stay.
If I were asked to write the same paper now, well, things are pretty much the same. Whether I’m writing fiction or non, poetry or prose, yes, the same things still pop up. And there are other things, imagery and themes that wind up in most of my writing. I write wild girls and lonely boys. Tears. The body and the heart. Adventures. Trains and the circus. Diners, moons, tarot cards, whiskey and smoke. America. Rust. Loss and sorrow and heartache. Memory. Ghosts and ghosts and ghosts.

Slowly getting into my old/new groove of zine making and overall output for people to interact with+buy. My online shop is so neglected and full of cobwebs- I’m gonna open a fresh new store very soon with shirts, zines, packages, and other items that will actually be in stock lol. Also I’m so sorry to folks over the years who’ve asked me for tattoo drawings that I’ve kinda just flaked on- as my art practice evolves so do my habits and work ethic. I’m getting my shit together as we speak.

Asexual Kobra Kid headcanons
  • He enjoys some physical intimacy (hugging, cuddling, etc.), but it gives him strong emotional feelings rather than sexual ones.
  • The occasional quick kiss is fine, but full-on making out makes him cringe. To him, it’s two people slobbering on each other’s faces.
  • Seeing Killjoys desperately try to hook up at the bar makes him privately glad to be asexual. When someone tries to pick him up, he just laughs good-naturedly.
  • The high prices people pay for pornodroids baffles him. Why would anyone pay 1,000 carbons for a short, one-off event? For that price, he could buy 500 comics that he can read over and over again.
  • The guys try to explain it to him, but he doesn’t understand sex in advertising. Risque city advertisements leave him unamused at best, and repulsed at the worst.
  • Sometimes people donate old ‘zines that they couldn’t sell, since the brothers love to collect 'zines and make collages. If they get a porn 'zine, Kobra just passes it along to Ghoul.
  • Kobra skips the sexy parts of novels and fast-forwards through smut scenes in Better Living books-on-tape, which Ghoul doesn’t appreciate. “Dude, you’re removing the context!”
