Public/Private Issue (Apr. 2018 #2)

Apr 2018 #2 – Public/Private Issue

This issue features a lengthy self-interview related to the public/private nature of reality and chronic abuse of Kentself. There is also a laundry situation that details a substantial change in infrastructure at the new Kent HQ, as well as an announcement of the loss of access to a laundry chute. The Public/Private Issue also includes two new Kentphorisms and two new Facts & Fictions About Kent Roberts. It also includes the 11th “Resistance corner,” which discusses eco-resistance.

It will be distributed on blue, sustainably sourced, 30% post-consumer recycled paper (FSC-C011397) at Peace Coffee Minnehaha, Five Watt Nicollet, Riverview, and Royal Grounds in Minneapolis, with initial release on Thursday, April 12th.

Old & New Issue (Apr. 2018 #1)

Apr 2018 #1 – Old and New Issue

This issue features a comparative analysis of the Old & New Kent HQs (Minneapolis Longfellow & Minneapolis Whittier). There is a sad goodbye to a beloved tree and an update on the Nell publication. There are two new Kentphorisms and a Fact & Fiction About Kent Roberts, both of which have turned into staples. Finally, this issue contains the 10th Resistance corner, a self-interview on the feature film I will release, on solar servers online, on October 16, Multicultural Diversity Day.

It is distributed on orange, sustainably sourced, 30% post-consumer recycled paper (FSC-C011397) at Peace Coffee Minnehaha, Five Watt Nicollet, Riverview, and Royal Grounds in Minneapolis.

Narcissism Issue (Mar. 2018 #2)

Mar 2018 #2 – The Narcissism Issue

This issue is the last Kent HQ – Longfellow issue (transitioning to Kent HQ – Whittier), as indicated by the article “First pangs of nostalgia arrive at Kent HQ.” The Kent HQ Flex Seating program was also introduced at Kent HQ in this issue – a program that will continue at the new location. A new moniker for a Russian agent is revealed in the 9th Resistance Corner, which is the avant-Kente “Dear Stormy’s Stallion.” Coverage of the water bottle I received from a homeless man appears in this issue – a story that was initially going to appear in the Sustainability Issue, as erroneously indicated elsewhere.

Edits made to this issue following its initial paper release:

Kent HQ flex seating
– “News”; typo
Resistance corner
– McDonald’s; typo
– sleight-of-hand; typo

It is available as a hard copy at Peace Coffee Minnehaha, Five Watt Nicollet, Riverview, and Royal Grounds in Minneapolis. All copies printed on paper certified as responsibly sourced and 30% post-consumer recycled (see certificate FSC-C011397).

Mar 2018 #1 – The Sustainability Issue

This issue features the top story “Errands associate: Sustainability of Earth starts with Kentself”; a “Resistance corner” (#8) about Axl Rose; an exclusive self-interview in which Kent says to Kentself, “You’re becoming the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard,” and then accuses Kentself of being some kind of wannabe cult leader; and a special report about the actual occurrence of the previously indicated 24th Kent HQ move.

Available as a hard copy at Peace Coffee Wonderland Park, Five Watt Kingfield, Riverview, and Royal Grounds in Minneapolis. All copies are printed on paper that is certified as responsibly sourced by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Peace Issue (Feb. 2018 #2)

Open the Peace Issue v. 2

I know this is annoying, but sometimes I release an additional edit of the same issue… for some reason. However, version 2 is an improvement and is touchups of the original. This issue contains some very interesting commentary within the Kent staff. The top story, “Peace arises following ‘friendly fire’ accident,” involves Kent Task Lisk Progress Monitor (KTLPM) Kent Roberts basically freaking out on Kent Special Projects Coordinator (KSPC) Kent Roberts. The Laundry situation features Kent Parent HQ. There is also an interview with Kent Lovelife Consultant Kent Roberts. Finally, this issue contains the 6th “Resistance corner.”

February 2018 #2

Feb 2018 #2

This Peace Issue features an all-new “Laundry situation,” the 6th “Resistance corner,” an interview with my lovelife consultant, and the top story, “Peace arises following ‘friendly fire’ accident.” This issue was possibly written faster than any of the 100+ issues that have been produced. But it is also, I think, maybe one of the best.

Available in what I would its “true form” at Peace (Minnehaha), Five Watt (Nicollet), Riverview, and Royal Grounds in Minneapolis. All copies are printed on paper that is certified as responsibly sourced by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
