Don’t Fall Asleep

“I just really want a hug. I really want to be hugged.” You try understanding yourself and find lunacy to be a word that describes you. Well, that’s NOT the case, because reading Christina’s zine just put into perspective that one makes decisions in life according to what you want, and what you need.

Dreemy Kreem
(NJ/US)

“One of the most troubling elements of my personality is the complete “schizophrenia” I have of loving people and being totally terrified of them at different points in my life.” Vol. 1, no. 5 covers articles on having your eyes betray you in elementary school to the point where you have to wear glasses, movie reviews, comics, fear for antique dolls, growing fond of solitude, views on cloning and other articles.

Drivel
(KS/US)
“Life is no more than a job- everything is a job- must have a fucking job can’t pay bills without a job- work- work- work. No more jobs…job…job. Where does all my money go? …Ahhhh!!!" Issue #3 is based on the customary necessity of survival, like it or not it’s about money. Yeah, whether we have enough or just enough to lounge you still can’t live an entire life’s worth waiting for it to fall out of the sky. Just the mere fact you breathe is a finance crisis.

Drunken Logic
(OH/US)

“I feel as though I’m naked when I read over some of the writings that are in this zine. I’ve completely ripped off all of my disguises and clothing and exposed myself, the real me. The me that I feel shame to admit exist. Should I?” This issue draws on various elements that are vital to Jamie’s life, such as what is on her stereo, commitment, Slitter –Kinney, the importance of Punk Rock and other stories.
