Jay Koivu Zine Prophet
I was reading an old issue of Mr. Peebody's Soiled Trousers And Other Delights and came across an eerie line. Published by Jay Koivu, Peebody's was a fun perzine that usually was in the form of daily journal entries. This issue documented Jay's life as he had moved once again to Los Angeles in 2001. The issue was published in May 2001 or so. In the entry dated April 14, Jay writes, "Why do I feel like something really bad is gonna happen before this year is over?"
Now, something really bad happens every day to somebody, or many somebodies, and Jay's thought is a very openended and general statement, but given that this issue was published in early 2001, a few months before September 11th, it's still eerie to read. I probably last read this issue shortly after it came out and didn't much note that line. Rereading the zine, and that line, in 2015, knowing what was coming later in 2001 made for a creepy experience.
Maybe Jay should become a tarot reader or something. On at least one occasion, his feeling about the future was on target.
Are you insane with your marketing budget? Do you have spare change under the couch cushions? Perhaps then you would like to advertise on WredFright.Com. Email Wred at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
Google plops ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). Google also provides traffic statistics to me so I can see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
