Elephant Mess Re-invented

So the 15th issue of Elephant Mess is done. I've been unemployed for the last month otherwise this wouldn't have happened. But a disadvantage to being unemployed is that I don't have the money to print it. Normally I pass along all my zines for free (usually only asking for a trade or some stamps or nothing at all), but this time (because I have no money) there is going to be a charge - at least for those that want a copy of this right now and maybe for everyone if I don't get a job soon. Anyway, issue number fifteen is The Unreviews Issue which just means that it's me writing about a bunch of random stuff that I don't normally write about. Rather than reviewing things like CDs or books or zines, I'm unreviewing things like record players, dumpster diving and public urination - hence, The Unreviews Issue. It's fun...and much different from all the past issues of Elephant Mess. So, don't judge this issue by other issues you've seen and order a copy today. I'm only asking for a buck - not the new one dollar which is two dollars. Just one dollar. Send your George Washington for EM15 to:
Dan Murphy
PO BOX 3154
Moscow ID 83843

Moog Movie

Did you know that there is a movie all about MOOGs? I haven't seen it yet, but I definitely plan to. Remember The Rentals? (Weren't they a side project of one of the dudes in Weezer?) They were all about MOOGs. Awesome. Check out the trailer.

Andrew Skurka and the Sea-to-Sea Route

A guy by the name of Andrew Skurka recently finished a cross-continent, 7,700 mile hike. The route he took is called the sea-to-sea route (C2C). It took him 11 months. That's a lot of walking.

Okay... I finally have a new Moscow address to give to you:

Daniel Murphy
PO Box 3154
Moscow ID 83843

Please write to me soon. It's lonely up here in the panhandle. The Juniper #4 is done. It's been done for over a week. I've just been waiting until I knew what my new PO Box was going to be... Now I have to wait until I have the cash money to print it. But that shouldn't stop you from sending those stamps so that you can be one of the first to see it. It's still free in person and a 37cent stamp by mail. There's lots of stuff about bikes, plus some recipes, stuff about organics and other interesting things. Live free my friends. We'll talk again soon.

oh yeah...and monetary donations are always accepted with thankful arms.
