PORNOGRAPHIC FLABBERGASTED EMUS, THE #3
$3, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 48 pgs.
By sean

The novel tells the story of four college students and their fairly unsuccessful punk band.


GO METRIC
Winter ’02/’03, $2, 7 x 8 ½, copied, 64 pgs.
By sean

I started reading this issue of Go Metric during one of those incredibly long waits at the doctor’s office, and, for the first time in my life, I spent an hour in a waiting room without grumbling to myself, “Goddamn doctors think their time’s so much more valuable then everyone else’s. Fuckers.”


GLASS HOUSES, #2
$1ppd or trade, free to prisoners, 4 x 5 ½, copied on thick tracing paper, 14 pg
By Maddy

This is a great example of how to write a personal zine. I read this in under ten minutes, and couldn’t put it down.


GENETIC DISORDER, #16
$3, glossy cover, 73 pgs.
By todd

It includes “The Seven Days of ‘Stache’” which is a review of seven nights with a mustache and trying to pick up on women at bars


EXTREME CONFORMITY, #6
$2.50, 11 x 4 ¼, copied, 84 pgs.
By sean

Larry Nocella, the guy who does Extreme Conformity, has a real knack for satire and a tight grasp on the absurd factors of our society.


DEADBEAT, #4
60 cents, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied (?), 38 pgs.
By Maddy

Articles about rethinking selling out, why corporate rock sucks, annoying Christian punks, album reviews, short histories of Black Flag, the Sonics, Aus Rotten, and more.


COMPLEXIFICATION STRATEGORY: A TEN FOOT RULE SAMPLER,
$1, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 16 pgs.
By sean

It’s been a long time since Shawn Granton put out a full-fledged Ten Foot Rule comic, which kinda bums me out.


BRAINSCAN #19
5 x 6 ¾, 65 pgs.
By todd

Alex Wrekk is extremely conscientious about zine culture as a whole – how zines are made (Hers is put together masterfully. Hand silk screened cover, nice ribbon binding, clear, readable, and interesting layouts), what zines mean overall, and how zines have helped save her life. #19 focuses on a couple things.


BIG TAKEOVER, THE, #51
$4.95, 8 ½ x 11, glossy stock, full color cover, 320 pgs.
By Cuss Baxter

So here’s what I can get from the BT in fifteen minutes: Paul Westerburg (Replacements) cover, smoking cigar in western shirt. Interviews with the Flaming Lips, Wire, Mission of Burma, Mike Ness, Mike Watt, Pere Ubu’s David Thomas, Kim Salmon (Wanda rejoice!) and some other people who play music.


BARRACUDA, #15
$5 (U.S.), $7.50
By Maddy

If glossy magazines featuring lots of girls who look like Betty Page, lots of vintage cars, and tiki drinks is your thing (you know who you are), check this out.


2500 LEFT-HANDED PEOPLE DIE EVERY YEAR USING RIGHT-HANDED PRODUCTS (THIS IS NOT
$1, 5 ½ x 8 ½, xeroxed, 22 pgs.
By Cuss Baxter

My favorite part is the page and a half of reprinted Hemingway.


WONKAVISION
#20, $2.95, 8 ½ x 11, glossy cover/photcopied inside, 90 pgs.
By Josh

Indie rock, indie rock, indie rock.


STOLEN SHARPIE REVOLUTION
$3, 4 ¼ X 5 , cardstock cover, newsprint, 96 pgs.
By todd

It’s part conceptual; it’s part pragmatic. It’s all very helpful and definitely fulfills its promise in “documenting a subculture for educational purposes.”


SNAKEPIT, Anthology II
104 pps, 5 ½ X 8 ½, $3
By todd

The idea is easy to follow. Ben draws three panels that make up his day and includes the name of a song and artist on the top of the strip.


SLAVE MAGAZINE
#7, $4, 8 ½ x 11, offset, 108 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

This zine is more focused on art than other music zines of its ilk and caliber. Despite not being that interested in the musical offerings, the interviews read well.


RIOT 77 MAGAZINE
#5, $5 US / 2.50 Euros, A4, glossy offset, 52 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Guys (because it’s so utterly male. I doubt there’s a woman on staff), I hate to break it to you, but the punk world didn’t stop churning out creative music in 1980.


SLUG AND LETTUCE
#74, free/60 cents postage, 17 x 11, newsprint, 20 pgs.
By Josh

Plain and simple, this is a great DIY publication.


READ
#21, $4, 8 ½ x 11, off-set, 100 pgs.
By Maddy

I guess I just don't get why people do magazines like this. (Note: READ is definitely not a zine. They even list an "editor-in-chief.")


PROCESSED WORLD
20th Anniversary Edition, $10, 8 ½ x 11, glossy cover, heavy stock paper, 112 pg
By todd

If you’re looking for a serious, thorough, and insightful book-like zine on how technology has irrevocably changed our lives in the last fifteen years, I can’t recommend Processed World highly enough.


ON SUBBING
#4, $1 ppd, 5 ½ x 4 ¼, copied, 72 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Dave is a punk rock substitute teacher in the Portland public school system and these are his diary entries of getting taunted by students, changing diapers, and assisting students in the bathroom.


NO ONE TOUCHES THE DREAM TEAM
#8, 5 ½ x 8 ½, 27 pgs.
By todd

Picture me shrugging here. NOTTDT is the poor-man's Cracked, which is still the poor-man's Mad.


NEWS FROM THE UNDERGROUND
#1, $1, 8 ½ x 11, photocopied, 8 pgs.
By Josh

A newsletter/pamphlet type thing reporting on activism and protests from around the world.


NEWS FROM NOWHERE
#2, free/60 cents postage, 17 x 11, newsprint, 8 pgs.
By Josh

Pretty cool anarchist newspaper type thing.




NEW SCHEME
#7, $2 ppd, 8 ½ x 11, newsprint, 56 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

This zine covers only the finest in indie music and the diversity keeps me reading.


MY PINK SCARF
#11, $2.00, 5 ½ X 8 ½, xeroxed, 84 pgs.
By todd

The more I read My Pink Scarf, the more creepy it became. The author, Brandt, reveals as little of himself as possible, except that he likes pizza, visiting graveyards, and riding his bicycle.
