CRASH ZINE - POP CULTURE & POLITIX FOR THE REST OF US

CRASH IS A FEMINIST POP CULTURE AND POLITCS FANZINE. COVERING FEMALE BUSINESS OWNERS, WRITERS, MUSICIANS AND MORE. OFFERING A SPACE FOR FEMALE WRITERS, WITH OUT ALL OF THE FLUFF PIECES. WE ALSO HAVE REVIEWS, RECIPIES, AND A DO IT YOURSELF SECTION.

BIBLIOTEQUE

The letter from the editor descibes CRASH as "a new source for all your political and entertainment needs." It goes on to announce an ongoing theme of sex and candy(of the eye, ear & brain varieties). Maybe not so gratifiying as sex, but far more filling and nutritious than candy, CRASH delivers on all counts. The text is a little small to make it a very comfortable read, but that is my only real criticism. Inside is some great writing in some really funny essays. Stand-outs include an essay on posing for Playboy and taking a drug test to check for the effects of hemp-manufactured food products. Interviews with the band Kitty Kill and a sex shop co-founder, balance out the reaction/response articles to the 9/11 attacks on the US quite nicely. A nifty blend of a little fiction, a little feminism, and a lot of collective smarts makes CRASH a super well-rounded zine.

SUPREME NOTHING

"Dedicated to Politics, Music, Movies, Activism, Philosophy, Sex, Love, Life and everything else your mother warned you about"

This issue's layout and print are much better than the issues before. Scarlet rants on why she hates the word "Vagina", why she prefers "cunt" and she provides a list of other possible names for "it". There's an awesome article about "action Medics" (these are medics who help protect activists at large protests) and how some groups have volunteered to spray themselves with Mace to find out what relieves the pain. There is also a write up on a cancelled fund raising concert for the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws, a great article on selling non-conformity, and finally a very informative piece on Affirmative Action in other counties.

"Sex & Candy"- This issue starts with an interview with DJ/Label owner, Princess Superstar. There's a fantastic article about minorities having their voting rights stripped in the 2000 election. Also: Interviews with the Grrl band Kitty Kill from MA, a funny article called "How to be a feminist and still pose for playboy", a super interesting article about how hemp is a better and more useful food source then soy. The problem is that it is said to be detected on drug tests. Kate has "hempfeast" and takes a drug test to see if she tests positive. There's fictionby Heather Corrina, an article called "the Pinking of Politics" which is about gender vs. war, a public hearing of the FCC in Seattle Washington about the new rules for the airwaves, an interview with Claire Cavanah, the owner of Toys in Babeland, and an article by Robert Jensen about patriotism before and after 9-11. This zine is super packed and a great read!
