    I ve only met Aaron Cometbus maybe three or four times, but he always impressed me as a surprisingly nice person for someone so famous, so ostensibly angry at the world, and so smart I doubt if he d remember me now, but he always did then, and he always managed to pick up our conversations right where we d left off, even if it had been two or three years since we d seen one another Honestly, he was better at recognizing me than I was at recognizing him Funny enough, I ve never been a regular I ve only met Aaron Cometbus maybe three or four times, but he always impressed me as a surprisingly nice person for someone so famous, so ostensibly angry at the world, and so smart I doubt if he d remember me now, but he always did then, and he always managed to pick up our conversations right where we d left off, even if it had been two or three years since we d seen one another Honestly, he was better at recognizing me than I was at recognizing him Funny enough, I ve never been a regular reader of Aaron s zine I would pick up a copy when I saw him, or once in a while when I found it at a friend s house I would read it, but I don t think I own a single copy right now There have been copies at various places I ve lived over the years, and maybe at one time there was one orin my collection, but they don t seem to have survived The most memorable pieces I read, thinking back now, related to Berkeley history, or Aaron s adventures on the ...

    I like how they protest the war by throwing rocks and paint at passing trains with weapons on them I also like how the author doesn t drink so all the barflys hate him.

    I liked how this book was heavily fictionalized yet the story seems based on things that very well could have happened in Aaron s life He remains an incredible writer, even though this book felt depressing and a little self indulgent, it was a good read In a way it didn t really go anywhere and the story was not that remarkable, but Cometbus ability to describe the subtlety and details of the often trying lives we live persists I liked how the political issues of the book remained in the bac I liked how this book was heavily fictionalized yet the story seems based on things that very well could have happened in Aaron s life He remains an incredible writer, even though this book felt depressing and a little self indulgent, it was a good read In a way it didn t really go anywhere and the story was not that remarkable, but Cometbus ability to describe the subtlety and details of the often trying lives we live persists I liked ...

    I liked this book because I havein common with Mr Cometbus these days than Mr Cometbus of yore Which is to say that I was never nostalgic, but I am over the hill.There are books and movies that match one s exact color and shape of depression When you read these books, or watch these movies at the right time in your life you think, Oh my god, someone who understands, or Yes, that s true, that s what life is like Later when you cheer up, you watch them again and think, God, what a ...

    cometbus quotes are classic, the stories are short and whatever, but aaron has a style of saying something as if it s the law, and making you want to live like it s your mantra

    A great short novel in the Cometbus style everyone knows and loves This one s a bit darker than the usual, if anything.

    i guess this counts as a book it s kind of just glorified cometbus though i like cometbus all right it s not amazing, but it s competent sometimes kind of funny or even occasionally poignant this was a bit of a snore though it covered a lot of the same or similar ground as old issues of cometbus that came out ten years ago i know it s tough to scrounge together new material when you re staying up for 36 hours at a stretch, hidden away in an attic somewhere, hand lettering your i guess this counts as a book it s kind of just glorified cometbus though i like cometbus all right it s not amazing, but it s competent sometimes kind of funny or even occasionally poignant this was a bit of a snore though it covered a lot of the same or similar ground as old issues of cometbus that came out ten years ago i know it s tough to scrounge together new material when you re staying up ...
