Joel McLemore published POPULAR DELUSION zine very sporadically during the 1990s. One article was published in the short-lived magazine SPEC in 1995. He also interviewed Exhumed Films for PUNK PLANET magazine. He has also been published in PMS, FUCKTOOTH, CRUSH, and DAYBOOK. He was a semi-regular participant on alt.zines as well as the punk-list e-mail list.
He worked for the United States Postal Service for seven years, both as a data entry clerk and as a mail processor, where he ran magazines and other flats through a machine, often damaging them.
Originally from Oklahoma, he currently resides "somewhere in central California." He is currently attending graduate school and will soon begin working as a tax associate for a "Big 4" accounting firm.
Joel is currently writing material for a new personal zine, much of which will be about his time at the Post Office.
