Melvins Discussion / Bongo Lips

'''''In addition to his musical and comedic skills, Crover has plans to release a drummer's fanzine, aptly titled Bongo Lips. "I've interviewed the drummers from Hammerhead and Poison Idea. We'll have lots of drummer jokes and good clean fun - just talkin' drums with the boys." '''''

has it ever been published? has anyone seen a Bongo Lips issue? any info?

Melvins Discussion / Mackie Osborne Interview
April 01, 2008, 11:20:45 AM
it's just a few days old, I did it for the magazine ROKKO'S ADVENTURES
I'll make a story out of it for the next issue, but here is the uncut version.
rokko for me, mackie for mackie-o:

Rokko: When did you start making art? And what were the results?
Mackie Osborne: I started drawing animals as a kid, I ended up with a career in advertising and design.

Rokko: Did you go to an art school or are you an autodidact?
Mackie: I went to school. Although I have to say I've learned more from working that I ever learned in school. School can be good for learning social skills, they're important. Also learning to listen to input and take criticism gracefully is a very important skill set in this field, probably one of the most important skills you can learn.

Rokko: Who are artists [music, film, painting, writing, performance,... ] you admire and that have inspired you or still do?
Mackie: Those are some long lists... I like a lot of different stuff.
Musically: David Bowie, the Melvins, of course, Patti Smith, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Zeplin, Big Black, Sex Pistols, Johnny Cash, Throbbing Gristle, Tool
Artistically: Edward Gorey, Diane Arbus, Chas. Addams, Alex Steinweiss, Chip Kid, Vaugn Oliver...
Writing: J.D. Salinger, C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Hafiz,
Film: Blade Runner, Princess Bride, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands, Dune, Fire Walk With Me, Wild at Heart, Blue Velvet, My Neighbor Totoro, Snow White,

Rokko: How was your career as graphic artist? Since when can you live on making art?
Mackie: I've made a living doing art since the 80's. After school I worked in advertising for six years. Since then I've worked freelance, doing music packaging, some book design, art direction on a couple magazines, some entertainment stuff and whatever else came along.

Rokko: You also did work as art director for Eptiapth Records, didn
