Back in the 90's, I had a hobby of following my friends around at clubs and making them write bad poetry for me. The word poetry was used very loosely. Well, completely incorrectly would be a better term since it was also used for articles, completely fabricated self-help columns and random complete and utter nonsense.
These are the results of those (often drunken) ramblings.

Hiroshima Club Beat Poetry Zine issue #4

Let's start from the beginning, here's the front and back covers. As usual, boring, unimaginative and torn from a dollar store coloring book.

and here's how it looked on the actual issue:

Happy New Year...and we're back!!!!

Yes, I know, it's been awhile...but we are back and we have a brand new issue newly transcribed and we start...NOW!

I really have no excuse for the delay other that I get lazy. I could argue that there are only so many issues left and that I have to make them last.
Or that I was so super busy with the holidays.
Or that finishing my fabulous screenplay has been taking all my time.
But the truth is simple plain 'ol lazyness.

Here's to hoping I'm more constant in the new year.

One thing I have not been bogged down with is reader submissions, so how about it?

Okay, so I lied. I have more more thing left from issue 3 to show you guys.

Apparently I taught her how to draw these when we were little.

Classifieds 3

Here it is! Our third instalment of the classifieds and our last post from issue #3. How time flies. Once again I am reminded of my promise that I will start posting these on Craiglist for our amusement and I will...eventually.

Send me your smut! I need more porno! Good porno, none of that tacky crap in the back of Playboy. Erotic fantasies about Q-tips preferred.

Send to Nancy

I bet you this one gets a lot of responses. I thought about googling the phrase "erotic fantasies about q-tips" but I was afraid of the amount of pop up porn I would encounter.

Artistic Designer

Fantasy art, portrait, rock and movie stars, logos, cassette tape covers, gothic goddesses.

Commissions from L5/$5 including postage

Write to Katia

All mail will be answered

This one was one of those people that actually took their ad seriously. I bet she ended up on etsy. People in Europe get kinda screwed with her pricing. I have a feeling ones on the US got screwed too anyway.
