220 Days of Movies With an Enormous Ball
is back home from his travels out West. Only this time he
brought a friend with him. And this friend lived in his pants.
Patiently awaiting surgery to remove said friend, he sat in
his mom's basement, became very stoned, and watched a great
number of movies. Those movies - from "Terror Hospital"
and "The Astro-Zombies" to "Who is Bozo Texino?"
and "La Vie Heureuse de Leopold Z" - are dissected
as mercilessly as JC's genitals in this unique critical narrative.
Culp's movie reviews on imdb
Use Me: Copyright-Free Media
idea for this zine all began when the Niagara Indie Film Festival
accepted, then rejected, a collage-based film crafted by Jonathan
Culp. According to the film fest, copyright was the issue
behind the rejection of the film...Culp then issues a request
on friends and fellow filmmakers to start a pressure campaign
on him to keep making these films, and prove that "media-sampling
and commentary" are worth it. Use Me is the culmination
of that pressure campaign." (Broken Pencil)

SARdineStock: White Guys Playing Black Music
is the shortest yet in some ways most grueling Stupid Journey
yet, taking Culp across town to Downsview Park for the SARS
relief concert of July 2003. With the Rolling Stones, AC/DC,
Rush, the Guess Who, and other new and old farts littering
the stage, and a million overpriced water bottles, Alberta
cow ribs and heat-exhausted rockers littering the grounds,
this zine offers a matter-of-fact report on this sometimes
thrilling, usually ridiculous attempt at spectacle, Canada-style.
Stupid Journey 4
shorter, and saner: diary excerpts and photographs from a
post-protest bicycle journey in June 2002. It takes Culp from
Ottawa to Toronto along a winding path through the Ottawa
Valley. No deep insights or soul-searching, just a nice, laid-back

Misbehavin': Us vs. Them in Washington DC
Culp is a Toronto-based video activist who decided to swap
his camcorder for a pen during the anti-IMF and World Bank
protests in Washington, DC this April...His diary-style entries
manage to frame events as if his cornea were still stuck to
a zoom lens. He crashes in a squat, but jokes about his 'bourgeois'
air mattress. He conveys the personal sacrifices of his fellow
protesters without turning them into martyrs. And he describes
facing down a bus that was trying to break a blockade without
sounding like a hero...Required reading." (This Magazine)

Thumbing the Canadian Wasteland
"Wow, what is it with Canada? There is always something
interesting coming out of there. This is exactly the kind
of zine I am a sucker for. The entire zine is about the author's
trip to one end of Canada and back again. It also comes with
a 60 min. audio tape which was entirely recorded on the road...
a nice touch...enjoy the ride." (Maximumrocknroll)

Day I Came Home as a Punk
collaboration between Jonathan Culp and Siue Moffat, this
large-format zine compiles the wackiest and most inspired
pre-pubescent creative writing you've ever seen. Highlights
include the title story, matching tales of thanksgiving turkeys
in revolt, a rocking performance by The Wolfens, and Culp's
long, long head-scratcher masterpiece, "The Eternal Energy
and Its Orange Juice". Bountifully illustrated and less
prone to falling apart than the print version!

this shit? This is supposed to a punk zine isn't it? But it's
so readable" (Broken Pencil) This is the companion zine
to Loogan Bin's 1996 CD, "Scene Wrecker," featuring
the art and writing of all three band members - Cameron Clow,
Jonathan Culp and Laura Lee Petty. Find out how to join the
Loogan Bin Fan Club, thrill to their friends' kissoffs of
club bookers and 'alternative' radio, and read Laura Lee's
truly nightmarish account of a puke-infested high school acid
party in one of those weird Scarborough houses with plastic
covers on all the furniture.

media manipulation, and of course the inevitable Revolution!
