What’s stealthy about Barracuda is that is pulls off being very, very stylish without being pretentious, doing it all on a budget, and encouraging the reader to do the same. I have the unfair advantage of knowing Jeff Fox, who runs the magazine, and I just happen to know how smartly he runs his operation. It’s completely DIY, done for all the right reasons, and to top it all off, the articles are excellent, executed with a pure enthusiasm and insight that’s lacking in a large swath of zines. I always find myself reading each and every article, and I learn something new every time. Did you know that Benjamin Franklin used electricity to slaughter animals and he owned the first bathtub in America? Name the first national highway? Route 66? Nope. The Lincoln Highway. There are also articles on understanding credit when purchasing a car and the Tiki of the Marquesas. Oh shit, I forgot the most obvious thing – there’s beautiful pin up girls throughout, tastefully posed, hilariously written up. I always look forward to Barracuda and it hasn’t disappointed yet. –Todd (Barracuda, PO Box 291873, LA, CA 90029)
