Laughing Squid Featured in the June 1998 Issue of the Japanese Internet Culture Magazine ‘Konpeito’

Laughing Squid in Konpeito 2

Going through our archives recently, I came across the June 1998 issue of the Japanese internet culture magazine Konpeito, that interviewed me almost two decades ago for a feature story on Laughing Squid. The article includes a screenshot of what the Laughing Squid website looked like in 1998, as well as mentioning our coverage of Burning Man, Santacon, ArtCar Fest and the documentary I made that launched Laughing Squid in 1995, Alonso G. Smith, A Half Century of Social Surrealism.
