This is going to be a short zine review, cause I’m going over to Gatineau tonight to watch the Batman movie at a drive-in.
I got a package today from the other side of the world (Australia), from a Tumblr friend who graciously sent me a free copy of her zine, Piss Factory. I’d like to note up front that this offer is valid for anyone: you, too, can send Rachel your address and receive a copy of Piss Factory.
Piss Factory is a fanzine through and through. Rachel is full of enthusiasm for her topics and for zine-making:as she writes in Issue #1,
“i’ve wanted to put something like this together for a long time now and now I’ve done it i feel like my heart’s gonna burst like an over ripe banana.”
Piss Factory features comics, drawings, record reviews, passionate arguments in favour of Rachel’s favourite music, and a piece about watching videos of Woodstock and wishing for revolution.
There is also an article about something called “Spicks and Specks”, which is apparently a TV show in Australia. Judging by Wikipedia, it seems to be like The Price is Right, but with music trivia instead of weird consumer durables, which I concede does sound awesome.
This zine also came with something I have never received with any other zine: a necklace of my name! Thank you Rachel for the fun zine and excellent necklace.
