BLACK TO COMM BACK ISSUES ARE STILL AVAILABLE! WON'T YOU
PLEEZE BUY SOME?
Sheesh, I'm getting tired of trying to turn these long-unsold issues of my WORLD FAMOUS CRUDZINE into megabux to retire on, or even minibux just so's I can have a good time once in awhile! I mean, how would you feel if there was something that you poured your heart, soul and perhaps even a few body organs into overtaking every aspect of your existence and the thing sells about as well as a sex manual at a Sunday School picnic? Let's just say that I still have a whole lotta these INFO-PACKED READS available for the discerning reader just like you and well, if you're a guy who thinks that the material that can be found on this blog is educational, interesting, entertaining and perhaps even slightly silly well, you'll be able to find a whole lotta that and more within the pages of these fanzines! Come to think of it, these pages also consist of quite a few items that some may say are far more scabrous and socially/politically incorrect than anything I've published on-line. Y'see, it's obvious that I have to curb myself while on the web what with all the do-gooders and glorified hall monitors and snitches there are out there attempting to cleanse the planet of ne'er do well free-thinkers (in the most honest, true sense) like myself! Not to mention others who are so intent on tinkling on the new (in)breed's wonderful world where they can all throw frisbees, engage in non-procreative sex and act like the Peter Perfects they truly most envision themselves to be here at the dawning of the Age of Rampant Assholism! So if you wanna glom some really downright offensive, non-redeeming material that makes my everyday opines on this blog read like Sweet Mary Sunshine just pick up a whole buncha these mags and prepare to curdle!
Prices are postpaid in the USA, elsewhere get in touch with me via comment box (I will not publish your vitals so don't panic!) for rates because I'll have to make up a package and have it weighed for accuracy. You can send checks and money orders made out to me (Chris Stigliano) or even cash as long as it's well-concealed to 701 North Hermitage Road, Suite 23, Hermitage PA 16148 USA. If you wanna set up a Paypal deal, again get in touch via the comment box with all the gory details such as your email address and items desired and we can go on from there. Just remember, with every fanzine purchase you make you are helping a needy man fulfill his wildest dreams, and helping the economy too because every buck received will no doubt go to a Forced Exposure order or ebay auction of my liking!
