I’m desperately trying to finish writing my 6th book. It should have been released in December but things like re-launching my record label have had me in meetings for the better part of 4 months. The new book should actually be my seventh, but that book – ‘Sunny Days – The Skip Prokop Story’ – is taking a very long time to transcribe and edit though we do expect it to be completed in coming months.

It’s been a really crappy two weeks.

I’m worn out and weary.

I was plugging away on an old Underwood electric typewriter out of a one-bedroom apartment in Pickering Village in the late 1980s putting out a fanzine called Great White Noise magazine when I received correspondence from legendary Pig Paper fanzine guru Gary Pig Gold….

JAIMIE VERNON – MEDIOCRITY: THE NEXT MASS EXTINCTION

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , on July 4, 2015 by segarini

Jaimie_CapeCod_2004 I’ve been called out on many occasions for criticizing art.
