funkyfest asked: I'm trying to guess by context clues but what do you mean by "shrimping" Aaron Cometbus? [I'm not a huge cometbus fan or anything, I just started reading him and I'm curious and also "shrimp" as a verb sounds useful...]
Shrimping is sucking on the toesies. I find it kind of gross and I am not a huge AC fan it just was a funny way to combine her interests—she had a zine on shrimping—and mine, ie punk and writing.[ETA: And Aaron was in a band called Crimpshrine.] I realize as I overexplain it how dreary it sounds but at the time it seemed hilarious.
