War bespeaks exceptional circumstances and is also naturalized as part of the human condition: there will always be war(s). War is then awful and normal; universal and yet unique. Each war is both similar and different to a previous one; it is both changed and static. The Vietnam War is different than the Afghan and Iraq wars, and not. Each war is defined by and defines anew its racialized gender power relations. And these power relations are defined by early global capitalism and anti-communism toward Vietnam, and US unipolar capitalism and antiterrorist rhetoric toward Afghanistan and Iraq.

Laying on the floor of our bedroom (my boyfriend and I ‘s room) Watching dead channels and commercials. Lately nothing but work has been going through my mind like clockwork. My notebooks are slow to fill up. I guess it could just be the anxious desires to get some worth-while writing down on paper. I’ve been jotting notes on topics of the meaning and value of culture for indigenous societies. So far no fiction. Also been setting up an email address for contacting purposes. So far DEAD SHOT is all notes and random scribbles of the same adjective. I am still dead set on finishing and editing the first issue. Released exclusively in the Arizona region. I’ll be advertising my zine in Facebook as well as from my blog here on Tumblr.
