Hank's Giving Thanks

I used to enjoy a fanzine called Dishwasher-- a journal of a guy who drifted around the country working as a dishwasher. If I ever do a fanzine again it should also have interviews with people who aren't in the creative arts. The car washers, the parking lot attendants, the truck unloaders.

It's a bummer that Dishwasher went the way of the dinosaur. Well, not quite I suppose (apparently there's a book now: http://www.dishwasherpete.com/) but the zine became staggeringly good during its last several issues. Just better and better.

I love the stories of the "common folk", the mechanics, the guy throwing the newspaper onto the lawn, the pest control man.. whoever it is. What they witness is always interesting.
