Jutchy Ya Ya: On an As-Is Basis

Jutchy Ya Ya
#47 is the forty-fourth-or-thereabouts issue of my occasional (and also free) zine, which I have been making since the turn of the century at ever-greater intervals. Sometimes I deliberately work toward a theme when I sit down to make a Jutchy Ya Ya, and sometimes a theme tends to present itself after the fact. This time around I’ve detected a slight theme relating to fine print/disclaimers/terms of usage, but also quite a bit of stuff about narwhals. So yeah, if you like the sound of:

  • Random facts about narwhals
  • Me talking about the time I interviewed Tori Amos
  • An email exchange I had with Cory Doctorow about the efficacy of ethically based boycotts
  • Random facts about pangolins
  • Cartoons of Narwhals and Pangolins wearing boxing gloves
  •  Reading fine print

This zine could be the one for you.

You can download or screen-read Jutchy Ya Ya #47 at issuu or on Scribd, or if you want one made of actual paper you can contact me at adamatsya [narwhal] gmail {pangolin} com or pay a visit to either ye olde Sticky Zine Store in Melbourne or yon venerable Format Zine Shop in Adelaide. If you’re in the Castlemaine area you might also keep an eye out for it at Castlemaine Railway Station or Wesley Hill Market.

Oh and ta muchly for checking it out. Hope you like it.

  1. I want one. Print. Bring it to me and I’ll buy you a croissant.

    Adam. I used to borrow and re-borrow your book ‘not quite the man for the job’ in high school…I’m 29 now *sigh*
    It was in my dream last night! I forgot your first name…and the name of the book, but I remembered what it looked like so I’ve spent the better part of today googling every ‘Ford poet’…(cheers for the rather generic surname btw)
    Is there a way to get any of your work in print?

      Welcome, Bethany! Glad to hear that the money I spent on dream-penetration ads is well spent. Apologies for the generic surname – I’ll have a word to my nana about that.

      Re: books in print, the only thing that IS in print is The Third Fruit is a Bird, which you can buy from me on the Third Fruit is a Bird page on this site. Everything else is available, but only in ebook format – check the sidebar for details on getting my ebooks.

      Thanks heaps!

Quelle Grammage!
only a fan of 2/3s of the folk in this pic but mesmerised by the story @angustrumble relates below it. . . . I watched last evening’s general election coverage (ABC, natch) in the company of a high Commonwealth official, among others in an undisclosed location, whose name, it soon emerged, may not appear on the electoral roll for reasons of national security. I confess that gave me a bit of a thrill. Canberra: Bless! However, it was also fascinating, extraordinary, in due course to witness that person’s several mobile phones evidently going bonkers, and the measured plans, contingencies, forecasts, blue books of an entire federal bureaucracy duly (one presumed) shredded, turned upside down, just like that. Nothing at all was said, I should emphasise. One simply observed the body language, which was moderately graphic. Whichever way you look at it, this has been an astounding personal victory for Prime Minister Scott Morrison. He believes in miracles, the sexy thing. Pre-polling methodologies in this country, meanwhile, have quite obviously met with serial unforced error on a colossal, epic scale. Who would ever pay them good money again? On my way home, I collided with the (ex-)campaign manager of one of the independent ACT Senate candidates who was alone, drunk and in despair. The campaign manager, that is, not the candidate. This was at about half past eleven on the corner of Jardine and Eyre Streets in Kingston, right next to the rubbish tin, you know, the rectangular green one. He told me he wanted to burn everything down, which was worrying enough, but then he suddenly hurled his mobile phone into the gutter—smashed it to bits—and staggered off into the night. I found myself wondering: Who would touch politics with a barge pole? I should add that this frightening encounter left me, literally, picking up his bits and bobs, then dutifully popping them in the bin. Responsible, me. Back home, I had a cuppa and played patience. I’m not kidding. . . . #Repost @angustrumble with @make_repost
A chance op shop encounter with this Death Liger Lion of Chaos duelmasters card case has done NOTHING to help my attempts to not buy one of this sucker’s namesake toys on ebay. #duelmasters #deathliger #deathligerlionofchaos #metalasfuck #toys

They come up after rain. I often wonder how they feel lying under the ground at right angles to their purpose. #chewton #railspike
