Sustainability Issue (Mar. 2018 #1)

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.

Repetition Issue (Feb. 2018 #3)

Open the Repetition Issue

The Repetition Issue contains an opinion piece from Kent Roberts of Minneapolis, explaining his eccentric behavior at a Manhattan temp job. There is another interview with a key Kent figure, Kent Interrelational Guru Kent Roberts. The issue also contains the avant-Kente “33 x 3,” the 7th “Resistance corner,” and new installments of the recurring features “Fact & Fiction About Kent Roberts” and “Laundry situation.”

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.”

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.

The Snowflakes Issue features a lengthy self-interview, “Exclusive: Kent talks Super Bowl With Kentself”; a Valentine’s-themed Fact & Fiction; two new Kentphorisms; the 5th “Resistance Corner”; and an update on the Kent spinoff Nell. The top story, though, is, “Amateur parenting advice: snowflakes are fun.”

Update: This issue, the Head Injury Issue, should now be considered only available through the website. Although there may still be a few copies floating around in Minneapolis Distro Points, I’m officially recalling the remainder of the local copies. The rap is a statement that is 100% against racism, but the blend of cultural elements got under some people’s skin to an extent that I need to pull the issue as “Too Hot For Local.” It is what it is; and lesson learned re: comfort at the local level. The rap is returning to its original title and form, trusting my instincts on what I wrote.

Notes (Boilerplate):

  1. The physical copies of this issue that are currently distributed at Peace (Minnehaha), Five Watt (Nicollet), Riverview, and Royal Grounds in Minneapolis are printed on paper that is certified as responsibly sourced and 30% post-consumer recycled by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
  2. Every issue moving forward until the like-stable-genius-in-chief is out of office will contain an installment of “Resistance Corner,” which first appeared at the same time Kent (first founded as a quarterly in 1999, after which it quickly became a sporadic) transitioned to a more sustainable weekly in December 2017.
