a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Just to be fair... YOU isn't a basic formatted zine. I have seen it come in many random forms, including with a envelope and a piece of broken record. I'd be pretty sure the zine wasn't ripped for the shoot. But Luke could correct that if i am wrong.
Chantel G. said:I just looked at Fashion Journal #93 on line. I think the whole magazine is ridiculous! If it weren't supposed to be serious, I would find it hilarious. There is much to find offensive there.
And in the ad Luke's zine was all ripped up! That part is sad too! Who rips up their zines and scatters the pages in a hallway? Weird!
I'm sorry you are having to deal with this, Luke. The company should have gotten your permission.
No, I don't think it's OK for people to steal others' work, period--whether you're distributing just to your friends or to publishing houses worldwide. Point is, Nana Judy is trying to say a certain type of guy wears Nana Judy clohes, and they're bringing YOU into that message without consultation with the author. I mean, under Nana Judy's "About Us" they say they make clothes for "guys who want to look the part" -- bleh. It's just grating. And I guess even if I weren't to blame the magazine, I would definitely blame the ad. And I can't say, after looking at the magazine, that I'd want much to do with what they have to offer, either, as it's devoted to catering to people who think clothes play an important role in life.
