Hello - Ron Sakolsky just brought your publication to my attention. Thank you for putting it together! Before it gets passed around too much, could you please correct the spelling of Don's name? It's LaCoss. He worked at LaCross, but his name was LaCoss. Thank you again! : ) Tammy

Interesting studies, the Psychopathology of Work should be on every Western bookshelf. READ IT or forever be enslaved by lazy logical assumptions and a lack of daring do !!

teach me how

Ill Will Editions = the chicago-based Tiqqunist circle-jerk.

i’ll forever proudly call myself a tiqqy!
tiqqy’s are the best because:

t- they are french
i- intelligent
q- quantitatively
q- qualitatively
y- (y)ours


no, instead they should make their own book fair called

instead of dangerous space policy, everybody agrees that what’s best for the commune is to get along nicely.

haha minku you still butt hurt no one wanted to let you write a "code of conduct" for their anarchist space. get over it bro

they still put ot good shit tho, cuz they take it seriously, and got some insu flava

plus literal circle-jerks should be generalized until the term no longer has a negative connotation. all cis-het men should engage in literal circle-jerks and buttstuff as an antidote to homophobia and toxic masculinity. of course, this is not panacea, but it wouldn’t hurt.

I see what you did there !

This would definitely not benefit your straight guys gone gay porn series...

"they still put ot good shit tho, cuz they take it seriously, and got some insu flava."

Yeah totally. Much of their commie "anarchist" zines make excellent toilet paper and kindle material!

where else do you think i read their zines, if not the toilet? ; )

but read it on my phone, and wipe my ass with toilet paper. pretty much the civ-iest shit ever.


have you ever seen a cactus porridge? i just made it up

uh, i forgot why i care about hating tiqqun. i’ve actually never felt hate, except when nearly impacted in traffic, then i get creative with wishing elaborate cruel curses.


nothing matters

“Summer days drifting away
To uh, oh those summer nights
Oh well, oh well, oh well oh, uh
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far?”

“Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on”

1. Hate what they don't understand.

2. Don't understand Tiqqun.

3. Hates Tiqqun.
