Ive been trying to figure out for
a while now what Cool Beans! is about. I think it boils down to whatever Im
currently obsessed with. I guess this has been apparent for a couple of issues now as
people keep telling me they like the parts of the magazine that I like best too.
This was an easy theme to come up with stuff for.
Almost everyone I know has good stories about traveling.
I hope you all dig the bonus CD, and a big thank you to
the bands appearing on it! Im switching to this format because its not all
that much more expensive than flexis or 7"s, more people can play them, and
they hold a lot more music. Please think of it as a mix tape and if you like it go find
more music by the bands! Im looking for more strange sounds/samples/audio weirdness
to put on future releases (ie Elviss Penis, Euonym, Now Ah Lissen) so if youve
got something like that on tape that hasnt already been released on a phone-pranks
tape or something send it myway!
In July, after I finished Cool Beans! #7 but before I
got it back from Punks with Presses I went on a West Coast bike tour. It was amazing. I
met great people and the weather was perfect! Everything went right - except that I rode
too far too fast and it was all over in just three weeks.
Publicity types: I know you most of you dont
actually read my mag because youre too busy working the product but really
we dont do reviews anymore so please stop asking. And guess why I dont print
my phone number? DONT CALL ME. Duh.
Make sure you buy a copy of the Three Day Stubble
7" and while youre at it, get the Rhythm Pigs 7" too. Theyre both
really great records, but theyre not in a lot of stores, so maybe you ought to just
send me some cash. Yup.
Oh yeah, please stop saying, "its all
good" and quit calling me "buddy".
This issue is dedicated to John Denver, Sony Bono and
Anton LaVey, they wereall evil, and now theyre gone. See how these things always
come in threes?
