“The Worm Ouroboros”, Cover art by Barbara Remington. src
Regards to everyone on this Super Worm Moon, the Spring Equinox of 2019!
The Farmer’s Almanac tells us that the “worm moon” has something to do with nightcrawlers wriggling out of the softening soil. But if you ask me, this Super Worm Moon has other implications for our current state of affairs on planet Earth.
Climate change is descending fast, with entire cities being engulfed in flames or flattened by cyclones. None of it seems to matter, as our entrenched self-appointed elites disregard science, the rule of law, or even reality, as they continue raking their bloody claws through any resources they can exploit. Truly, we do not seem to be dealing with innocent earthworms, those little workers who replenish the soil. We are dealing with the Worm, the evil one that is writhing in our soul, devouring us as it devours itself.
What to do?
Well, when the going gets this weird, you might as well focus on what is meaningful and amusing to yourself… you are not going to get a break from the flailing, nose-diving mainstream media, that’s for sure.
With this in mind, I am happy to offer the first issue of Diamond Bay’s own zine, free for the taking and the thinking.
A little bit about the name of the zine is in order.
Zapf.punkt is a mashup of Zap! (as in Zap Comix) and the brilliant font designer, Herman Zapf; while punkt means “point” or “dot.” In fact, this punkt refers to the bindi chakra, the third eye.
As for the sub-title, ein Schlag ins Gesicht des Weltraums, that translates as “a slap in the face of outer space!” Which is a basic objective of the nascent Diamond Bay Press. If any of this makes sense to you, please join the party.
Read, enjoy, and write back soon!
