David Prater just posted up a review of all of the reviews his latest poetry book, Leaves of Glass, received in 2014, noting that even though there were only 5 for the year, that’s a pretty good swag for a book

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

Here’s a couple of more-recent-than-the-ones-preceding-them issues of Jutchy Ya Ya for your perusal. Those newer to this blog might not have encountered one of these yet, so as they say in the Phantom comics: for those who came in late…

Jutchy Ya Ya: The Brain of a Robot

So at the start of the year I says to myself, I says, Adam, I says, why not aim to make up for the relative paucity of Jutchy Ya Ya production over the last few years, I says, why not

Jutchy Ya Ya: Presented by the citizens of Yapeen

I actually kind of forgot I had this one lying around here. I’ve been a bit remiss in the follow-through for my zines over the last couple of years, content to hand them to friends, post about them here and

Bendigo zinesters + New Jutchy Ya Ya

Last month Lauren Mitchell from the Bendigo Advertiser interviewed me for an article she was putting together on zines in the local area. I had a nice little email chat with her and made a mental note to pick up

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
