This is one of those youthful, anti-capitalist spirited DIY zines that has a bunch of how-to articles. There’s the overdone topics that go in every zine of this nature (Acid Wash Your Clothes! Wheat Pasting! Dumpster Diving! Save Money/ Get Stuff Free!), a bunch of recipes (sugar scrub, honey facial toner, toothpaste, all purpose cleaner, berry vanilla playdough, Febreeze, face paint, cold remedy, jewelry cleaning solution), and a random comic in the back. Instructions on how to make a homemade tattoo gun fall in the “really stupid” category because there’s no disclaimer to warn you about how crappy those permanent marks on your body look when done by an amateur. Feng Shui can be easily researched on the internet, and “How to Hardcore Dance”? Well, I’m not even going there. There are, however, a few articles in this zine that managed to impress me: moss tagging (yes, making graffiti with the grassy stuff), a two- page article on how to spruce up your 40 oz. (like making a “Coastcider 40” with cranberry juice and pear hard cider), and a “How to Skateboard” article that is printed in an illegible font except for the introduction, which reads, “If you want to be cool, you have to learn how to skate.” Can’t argue with that. –Lauren Trout (coughzine@yahoo.com)
