There is not a lot of violence in zines.There's probably some violent slogan's in some anti-government zines,but they're pretty vague and not very inter-personal; smash the state,hate capitalism,that kind of stuff.You don't find a lot of examples of zines being directly connected to violence.That's why what happened to me the other night is all the more fucked up.I did a poster for my friend's band,and he said I should come check out his gig at a house party.

I think I must be getting too old or something,but it seem's radical politic's just isn't what it used to be.It seem's that when people are really going out of thier way to make a point,it's like something got lost in the mix.They're earnest,shit,they could even be 100% correct,but it just seem's....I don't know,kind of hokey.Dated.Almost cute in it's ineffectiveness.Is being radical that silly?Has time just sort of passed the need for this by?Maybe it alway's looked silly,and I just didn't…Continue

One thing about this website,and the community in general,is that it's non-racist,non sexist,and non homophobic.Working within the perameter's of this dynamic makes it challenging to be humorous.It's not impossible;it just takes more work.Lucky for me,I'm in the final phases of my court ordered sensitivity training.I've been taking courses in political correctness for 2 year's,to improve my sensiivity level,and beat an Assault 4 rap.It's eye opening,to take everyone elses comfort level into…Continue
