Envelope By Randy Robbins - July 2011

Here's an envelope from Randy Robbins that appeared in my mailbox a few days ago (containing a letter and the latest issue of Narcolepsy Press Review #7 - review forthcoming). The blackmail cut 'n' paste lettering for the address is a clear sign of going above and beyond the call of duty, and huzzah!, this time none of the letters went Missing in Action (unlike this one).
As for the clippings about the Mormon woman who was held captive and raped, and Randy's 'manipulation' of the text, even though I'm unfamiliar with that story, it seems clumsy and unnecessarily mean-spirited. I think this Atheism obsession of Randy's is in danger of coming across sometimes as no better than the 'religionists' he ridicules. What do you think? I think his envelopes totally kick ass, but this example is a low point.

Man, Dexter's working overtime pumping out wonderful and wild smut comix through his The Comix Company imprint, and here's one of the latest. JB's story in this issue delves into the world of live webcam sex. Well, not sex as in two or more people sex, but one person performing various acts on their own bodies for the pleasure of remote (and paying) viewers. The story goes deep into porno web obsession - a character who locks himself in his mother's basement and pays to watch until he runs out of credit and has to webcast his own 'self abuse' to make more money for his webporn addiction. The anonymity of using the internet for such purposes is also touched on, which is pretty cool. I once read that so many people believe they are perfectly anonymous on the internet, thus can indulge their darkest fantasies, but that isn't true at all, and the smartest way to behave online is with the expectation that every thing you view and write and download, etc. will be scrutinised in the harsh glare of the public eye, and splashed across sensationalist media.
