Every issue of "she's so very..." deals with my life and often follows along in a diary like format. I continue in issue 12 with recurrent themes of sexuality, relationships, pregnancy fear and body image. I also write about the release of an LP, the death of JERK ALERT and our last tour; trying new things and planning for the future; building strong friendships and letting go of crappy friends; and of course my many celebrity and pop culture obsessions, including my discovery of Twilight, seeing the Toadies and Margaret Cho in the same weekend. I've also included an interview I did with Le Tigre back in 2000!

Know any queer rural zines? x-post (if this doesn't belong/breaks rules, sorry; tell me&I'll delete)

Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but my friend Jenna (a.k.a. trashcan_chica) needs some help:

"does anyone know of any queer zines about living in rural areas or going to rural areas?

any help/pointing in the right direction would be amazing. i went through the whole Queer Zine Archive and couldn't really find anything.

jenna b

p.s. i just got a wordpress site,!"

Her (AIM) away message also says: "is looking for zines about/by members of radical queer ANTI-URBAN communities, so if you know of any..."

So please comment if you can help at all; thanks. :]

This is a nicely produced little zine. This issue is all about contempt for work, bosses, and co-workers. It begins with observations on the absurdity of motivational campaigns and corporate job-love rhetoric, and I find it somewhat pathetic, despite the obvious ability of R. Lee to write. Just as I am thinking this is going to be one long ice pick in the eye, he grinds it into gear recounting stories of the workplace and the thing lurches forward. There is nothing particularly pleasant or enlightening for the remainder of the ride, but to the extent he sticks to storytelling and steers away from propagating, it ends up being a very readable series of glimpses into this slice of his life.

60 Pages, Half Legal

Fast becoming one of my favorite rags. Bite sized morsels of speculative fiction. Zine on the outside, literary journal inside. There are parts I don’t love and skip over, but the parts I love make the whole thing worthwhile. Sometimes creepy, sometimes dreamy. Favorite bits by Karen Joy Fowler and Steve Bratman. Well worth the price. Submissions send SASE for guidelines.
