Paping rules, Paping is cool, and we've got Paping in our school

So you know who's great? This guy:
John Mejias, pal, founder of Paping, member of Partyka and swell fellow has a few things going on around NYC right now, neither of which I have pictures of because I'm in West Chester PA right now, so I'll just tell you about them:

First, there's a Paping Retrospective art show hanging on the ground floor of Cake Shop on Ludlow St. in Manhattan right now. It has most of the contents of Paping's two silkscreen issues up on the walls; they're out of print now, I think, so if you want to see them now's a great chance. You'll can't see my stories "Think With Your Fists" and "Pink Meteor" anywhere else, for example. Also, there's a ton of John's prints for shows, posters for old runnings of the Paping Soap Box Derby, and the linocuts for the Paping Puppet show, as well as stuff from a lot of Paping's contributors and friends.

Secondly, John's assembled the new window display for Desert Island, the comic book store in Williamsburg. If you want to shop for comics at an establishment with a quality window display, I can't think of a better place than that.

Oh, yeah, and thirdly, dude's got a new job or two and is gonna be back teaching art! Keep it up, man, I'm glad you'll be able to afford burritos again.

It took toma four months of time and effort to find and get angry about this post. I respect that.
