Does anyone smoke a pipe anymore? I've been thinking about it. Hemp or tobacco. I was thinking, if I can go, to bring a bunch of noodles and spaghetti sauce?? Would the campers be up for a spaghetti night?? Any of you folks good at cooking?? Oh, I'm in Phoenix, and could give one person a ride.. I just don't know when this caregiving gig I'm doing will end??

Is there a mailin address or P.O. Box where things can be sent to the library? I got a book collection with a lot of doubles I can send as well as some college books and I'm sure I already have a few items that are on the wish list.

UPDATE: I have updated the first post in this thread with new information. This year we are requesting that folks bring zines instead of books, as the library has way, way too many books right now. Seriously, they don't need anymore!

They could use your (or other people's) zines to expand their collection! So hit up your local infoshop, punk house, coffee shop, anarcho buddy, online distro, etc... start collecting those zines and bring them to the jambo!

The library has many other needs as well, if you'd like to help out in other ways, check out this list of things they could use!

I think I may try and make it this year. Not sure if I want to hitchhike or drive my truck down yet...depends if I can make a little more $$ with farm gigs to make the gas money. But if I end up taking my truck, I'd probably have room to squeeze in 1-2 people if they need a ride down from Seattle area....

folks who know me have my #.
crawl, muthafuckers, crawl!!
200 degree fucking heat & special fucking sunglasses with hydrogen O2 separating spectral filter collection units...

& watch out for the mongrel rats that crawl out of the abandoned train station..
the fucker are 12' long & look just like abandoned RV's.. & those are just the fucking *babies*..

beer.. if you can't bring a 'zine, bring 4 fucking cases of beer.. the older, the better..
2001 vintage budwiser works fine..

just follow the sun.. stare at the fucking thing until you go blind, & you'll prolly get there 2 weeks early.. take a bath in the radioactive boiling pits, near the place where jesus is supposed to show up & you'll be fine..
looks like a big ass wedding cake or something..

maybe i'll make it, in which case i should have a bigger van & instead of 14 people stuffed in on the way out, we can stick in 27 or so, as long as we properly arrange the body parts..
*especially* if we drain 'em dry, first..

Damn i had like 30+ lit books and a bunch of non-fic commie stuff i was gonna bring but that's probably for the best anyway since i had no idea how i was gonna haul that stuff there anyway. I've got a bunch of industrial worker mags and jacobins(bleh) i hope that's ok because iowa doesn't exactly have a thriving underground lit scene or anything.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Latest Status Updates

My Anarchist's Guide to Travel came in today, six days early! I know it's not anything major, but I feel like I'm finally making progress towards getting myself out and traveling.

Now I just have to make sure I don't forget about my book review (which I wrote in my spare time) because I was too busy plowing through this. 😬

EDIT: It also came with a message from Matt and an awesome StP sticker that I didn't notice at first! Thank you!!
