A paper zine for people who hate people.


Every motherfucking thing in this amazing zine (and web site as well), Negative Capability #2, is copyright © 1998 Jøshua Saitz, except for a few things. The cover photo was my idea [it’s called “(If Mean People Suck) Nice People Burn”] and it was done by me and Jeffery (his spelling, not a typo) Price. We worked together on gathering material, composing the frame and the set design. Unfortunately, I took a few Polaroid test shots to make sure it was framed perfectly and then ALL of the actual pictures that Jeff took didn’t come out. They were all way too dark, they were tinted red and were just awful. It really pissed me off because I spent a fortune on film and processing and then ended up having to get a drum scan of one of the Polaroids that I took, so I am taking credit for the final picture. The cute illustration for “Sperm King,” two recipes and the Mini-Rant were done by my lovely wife.

Negative Capability is intended as a parody of everything in the world, so please don’t get upset or take any of it personally. This disclaimer is not intended to soften the impact of my vitriol but rather to point out the obvious, and to prevent any cocksuckers out there from suing me. I don’t have anything anyway you hypersensitive litigious piece of shit.

In terms of what you’re getting for your money, $4 for this zine is quite a bargain. If you agree and want to give something back, here are a few cool things that you can do: 1) buy extra copies of the print zine and the audiozine (Misfit Toys) to give to friends and family and then subscribe for yourself because it’s cheap!; 2) if you do a cool publication, make me a good offer to reprint one of my articles; 3) mention Negative Capability along with ordering info everywhere you can - web pages, in your zine, hell, get it tattooed on your forehead; 4) whenever you win money at gambling or in the lottery, please share your good fortune with me!

This issue was produced with pride on an Apple Power Macintosh 7200/90 and was output straight to film. Negative Capability is produced without any Microsoft products whatsoever, forever and ever, amen.
