More Country Music from the United States Military!

Why can't Wikileaks or whoever cyber-hack into the mainframe that stores all the United States military's music library and make that stuff public? I mean, sure, we should all care about the drone attacks on puppies and kittens that I imagine are carried out daily, but what about all those radio shows that we can't hear? Huh? What about them, Uncle Sam?

I have no idea what I am talking about.

Here are four episodes of Country Music Express from the summer of 1972. The record skips on one of these shows. You'll be okay.

Look at what I did!

Everyone knows that print is dead, so to celebrate that fact, I went and made a fanzine! What a good idea! It's called The Atomic Elbow and it's about professional wrestling, which is one of the best things ever.

It's 48 pages of me and some other folks (namely Scott T. Holland, Box Brown and Patrick Dean. Featuring photos by Zia Hiltey) writing and drawing about rasslin', and I know I'm biased, but I think it's pretty good.

It's got stuff in it about Bob Mould.

It's got a comic about Andre the Giant and Bad News Brown, it's got an interview with UltraMantis Black, and it's got an almost 9,000 word essay about Halloween Havoc 2000.

Also, the first 100 copies come with a limited edition set of three one-inch buttons featuring UltraMantis Black, the UltraMantis Black logo and the Atomic Elbow logo.

The first printing is sold out, but you'll still get an Atomic Elbow logo button and a special edition Atomic Elbow mystery poster. (I mean, it's really an 11" x 17" photocopy, but I can call that a poster, right? I say I can. And I say it's a "poster".) I'm not going to show you what the poster looks like on the internet. You've gotta order a copy to find out.

You probably want one of these, right? I hope you do.

You can get one by sending me five dollars through paypal. If you live in Canada or Mexico, please send seven (American) dollars. If you live in a country that isn't the USA, Canada or Mexico, please send nine (American) dollars. The email address to use is secondperiod[at]gmail[dot]com. Or, you can do it the old-timey way and send me the cash in the mail. The address is 231 Rhodes Drive / Athens, GA / 30606.

Please buy my wrestling fanzine!

Where have I been this time?

I have been working on a thing. That's where.

This is the thing I have been working on.

The cover'll probably look slightly different in its final version. You can see it in April, probably. It'll be pretty good.
