It's a personal zine that covers being a mother, being a radical political activist/organizer, and how and where those worlds intersect. It's geared toward parents and radical activists, but could be interesting reading for just about anyone."

The project was envisioned as a way to encourage women to make films and as a vehicle to have their films seen by others. Miranda July is also the co-editor of the zine Snarla (with Johanna Fateman) and the director of the feature film You And Me And Everyone We Know." Quoted from ZineWiki.

Junk/Food: Out of the Frying Pan & Into the Fire "Judy's zine is a revealing and unflinching look into the complexities of eating disorders. The ongoing struggle to kick her habit (bulimia) brings her to examine her childhood and the roots of her eating disorder. This issue also deals with her breakup & subsequent relocation through extremely personal journal entries. This is not a preachy diatribe, but a very real look at the mixed feelings (often affectionate) she has toward her eating disorder and how it affects her life everyday."

Just That Good
(TX/US)

I also contributed to this! She seems as though she is guilty of liking the site but also, understands why others might detest MYSPACE." Zine by Becca.
