Zine Review - The Lab Int'L No. 12

Zine Review - The Lab Int'L No. 12


Number 12 begins with “Grrls are Gonna Riot!” and keeps that powerful mentality rooted in your brain as we dive deep in the Riot Grrrl Blogs, Music Grrl contact info and then a heaping helping of reviews, Interview with Apocalypse, For Years Blue, God Fearing Nation & If you’re lucky. Damn good writing, and defiantly a positive force in the music zine community.

Welcome to Flavor Country #10


Welcome to Flavor Country
#10
40 Pages, Digest
$1 or some stamps

This is a thick perzine with commentary, fiction, poetry, art, and some reprinted stuff about the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW.) Much of this issue revolves around work related issues. Kurt talks about his job as an environmentalist, and his personal journey into corporate America, while trying to hold onto his punk and anarchist roots and values. Kurt’s strong suit is his first person narration. His writing about his thoughts and feelings is intelligent, concise, sensitive, and honest. I both agreed and disagreed with parts, but I felt throughout that this was someone I could sit down and have a worthwhile conversation with. In comparison the fiction isn’t bad but not near as seamless. While the writing shows promise, here he is reaching to find expression, whereas his first person writing is already spot on.

A perzine from Steve in Portland. Steve is articulate and somewhat insightful, but not all that interesting. The writing is morose and self indulgent, with little compensation to the reader. Quit drinking. Start drinking. Letter from ex-girlfriend. On the road. Gigs. Nice drawings, cool translucent cover. “You know where all the commas and semi-colons go. You don’t have to rely on spell-check all the time. Run-on sentences have been split up into bite-size twos and threes. You’ve got a crystal clear thesis, a chunky ass body, and a conclusion like a judge’s gavel. But somehow there isn’t as much to be said, now that you know how to say it so nicely.” That’s as good as it gets.

Anchorage Anarchy #9

Anchorage Anarchy #9
12 Page, Half Legal
$1

The title says it all. This is a serious and humorless rant zine that attacks all government without prejudice of party affiliation. Overall, it is well written and packaged. While a chunk of it is nothing new or different, there's a decent three page rant on the incestuous and insane relationship between religion and government, despite our alleged intent to separate them. Otherwise, this is likely of interest primarily to those already invested in the anarchist point of view.

Christian*New Age Quarterly A Bridge Supporting Dialog
24 Pages, Chapbook, $3.50 US, $5.00 Elsewhere

The lead piece is on demystifying Carlos Castaneda by a former would-be apprentice turned research scientist; Robert Arias. The rest of the writing is predictably gooey, but not altogether bad. Book, magazine, and drama reviews. All in all it's a noble effort and the subject matter is true to the title. Nice, crisp editing, no wasted space, and I liked that the lead story started right on the cover. (They're looking for a volunteer asst editor.)

Zine Review - The Lab International No 11

A revision of a revision of a revision, Doodle Z shows that sloppy editing has no place, and is continually trying to refine the work so that a clean professional product is what we see, and does an excellent job of it. The Lab, as usual, is packed with articles running the gaumet from “WTF is Gong on Over there? to the Standwood Metal bash. While the Lab’s focus is mostly on music there’s some awesome poetry and lots of band connections to get you through the night. Contact The Lab Directly at:

Zine Review - The GraveYard Youth No 2

Zine Review - The GraveYard Youth No 2




Dolly Dead’s Grave Yard Youth #2 is a heavily collaged feast for the eyes and feelings, with heavy emphasis on the use/abuse of women in our culture, with interspersions of feelings and drunken aspects and perceptions. Pieces about feelings, how hollywood’s perceptions of the perfect woman influence our actions as people, and dark powerful poetry abound in this very cool piece of writing. Two bucks and defiantly not for the feint of heart.

Snippet:

“A study looking at the prevalence of sexual assault among women between 18 and 30 found that 38% had experienced victimization and almost 50% of that group had been raped, cliamns the Research Institute on Addictions at the University at Buffalo (NY) – from USA today, on findarticles.com Too many GRRLS are RAPED. Too many of my FRIENDS are hurt. NUMBERS are too MUCH.”

Zine Review - University

Zine Review - University




Elizabeth Rabbit’s step from her familiar home in England to the University in Edinburgh is fraught with insecurity, doubt and curiosity. She takes all of these things on, and gives us a very, very personal zine that details her first year. From getting settled to her new flat to making new friends and foes, Elizabeth’s writing is clear and very interesting. Filled with interesting things from the local establishments with too-high-priced drinks to a very interesting piece about Trainspotting, this thick zine clearly documents 9 months in a person’s life, and is very fulfilling reading. Two bucks and worth every dime.

Snippet:

Lying motionless on the art college’s grassy courtyard with Donna’s head on my legs, I couldn’t help laughing and wondering why I was ever seriously considering moving back home. I’d never had this much fun in my life. The night air was forcing my brain back into working order, but for some reason everything seemed to be bone-shakinglyu hilarious, or so Donna thought and I couldn’t help but agree.
