a place for zinesters - writers and readers
i already wrote a zine exactly like this! with the same title and everything! i put it out last year!
just kidding. ha. i lied.
keep me reminded on this. i'll write ya up something. maybe tonight, even. Lying is a great topic...
I wrote a zine about all the times I told the truth. It was what you might call a mini-zine.
last year, my uncle and aunt gave me a makeup kit. like, one of those things with sparkly lipgloss and pink nailpolish and crap you'd give to a girly thirteen year old.
... anyone that's met me ONCE knows that isn't me. and these people have known me for nineteen years.
I made my face up like a cat. they seemed confused.
also, I got barbie dolls till I was like... geez, sixteen, maybe? I didn't even like barbies when I was little, I used to chew their feet off.
I was just reading about something called the "radical hoensty movement." Basically if you get an ugly sweater for Xmas you say "This is an ugly fucking sweater and if you knew anything about me at all you would know this is the type of thing I would never wear. Not only that, it's too fucking small. If you don't care enough about me to get me something that at least fits you shouldn't waste your time and money." Supposedly this is liberating and once you get going it really cuts through a lot of the bullshit in your everyday life. The guy who started the movement says that he will lie to the government and no one else. I can support that, but overall I think it's better in theory than it is in practice.
