Venus Zine
"Amy Schroeder started Venus when she was a freshman at Michigan State University in 1995. It started as a 12-page rant-and-rave rag that covered topics ranging from radical feminism to her friends' bands to the discovery that Schroeder was in fact a Midwesterner with a funny accent. Venus now publishes four times a year, and each issue is about 50 pages. Venus is a feminist resource and focuses primarily on women who make music. Venus also covers do-it-yourself culture and women artists and writers. More often than not, Venus includes interviews with female musicians who do things the hard way: independently. The majority of artists covered in Venus (past issues have included interviews with Le Tigre, Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker, Hanin Elias of Atari Teenage Riot, and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth) record for independent labels or are major contributors to the do-it-yourself community." One of my favorite zines!!! Now based in Chicago.

Valiant Vocabulary

“Last night I was thinking about someone else entirely. Someone very real, very tangible, very alive, and even very special…thought not really to me. But I had myself convinced otherwise, and that was the real point. I wasn’t thinking about you.” Love rubs, and it also knows how to scrape. By Ollie.
