It is so exciting for me to get mail from Brazil and these two tiny little zines are totally wonderful!! Zines just keep getting smaller and this is smallest one I have seen yet!
Each page has one sentence of poetry or a sharpie style drawn picture. These are truly high art and I could see them selling for 3-5 dollars at an art gallery! I showed one to a friend of mine and she was so inspired she said she wanted to go home and make one for herself.
As much as I love these mini zines as art I can't help but also see the marketing potential these could have. Every convention has a freebie table so why not create a bunch of these at .12 cents a piece and put web addresses in there and build a list and make some money!!

Rock Opera is a 1999 Austin Texas punk rock comedy thriller movie directed by Bob Ray. This movie is totally awesome!! It tells the story of Toe, a drug dealer in the band Pigpoke. He is trying to raise money selling pot to get his band to go on tour.
He gets weed fronted to him from a dude who is on house arrest for jacking off into a laundromat dryer.
He sells to all kinds of interesting people who I assume are players in the Austin punk scene. Things is they all are into a different drug and offer Toe a sample, for instance this guy who is dipping cigarettes in Robotussin.
The more of these custie drugs he tries the more he gets strung out! It seemed to me like he was making good money but I guess he wanted to be a higher roller so he goes over his suppliers head and contacts his suppliers supplier. Now he's moving even more weed but the new guys is a crazy violent redneck. Shit gets serious dealing with this dude and the movie starts to get pretty intense at this point!
Like I said before, this movie is super awesome! It has great music, great acting and a good story. If you are a punk rocker it is basically your duty to make a movie like this documenting your scene. Seriously, every punk scene should have a movie like this. I can't recommend this highly enough! You can purchase it here or get the DVD from Netflix.
Here Have A Turd is a political zine from my good pen pal buddy Sid Clark. I talks about the evil of big cities, the Mega-SoapOpera, the Godhood Project, the Mega-machine and several other topics.
Look Who's Toxic is a 1990 Toxic Avenger rip off directed by Louis Mathew. It starts off with a scene completely unrelated to the rest of the film where a woman has a baby in a hospital and when the baby is born everyone is horrified and disgusted but we don't see the baby. I am guessing this scene was inserted because of the pun in the title.
Blood Nasty is a very rare horror comedy directed by Richard Gabai and Robert Strauss. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about horror films but somehow this movie flew under the radar as I have never heard of it until last night!
It's about a guy named Roy who robs the grave of Mexican serial killer occultist named Blade. He gets double crossed by his partners in crime who kill him, steal the killers ring and flee by plane. The plane crashes and the ring magically falls back on the grave of Roy and the ring brings Roy back to life although he is possessed by Blade.
Attack Of The Tromaggot is a German Troma fan film directed by Leslie Teah you can watch for free on youtube. It is almost impossible to describe this movie, which I believe makes it truly a modern art masterpiece!!
It starts off in some kind of S&M nightmare scenario where a man finds a harmless small maggot and packages it and gives it the mail man. The maggot gets sent to a lab where all kinds of weird shit is going down and the maggot ends up mutating by being exposed to chemicals I guess. Across town a militant covert operation called "Mucus" is in the business of illegally selling slime. Also there is a homosexual chief of police and an idiotic street cop. All of these stories and characters meet and eventually they all get gruesomely killed by the tromaggot.
This movie is super slimy and squishy. Tons of blood and all kinds of things that are gross. You would have to have a cast iron stomach not to feel queasy watching this. Actress Alexandra Rothert was lovely though.
I believe this film was dubbed by Troma studios but I am not sure about this. The dialogue is pretty hilarious though whoever did the dubbing. There are also cameos by Lloyd Kaufman and Debbie Rochon. Def check this out if you think you can handle it!!!
Anda Volley is a Folk Rock singer from Boston with poetic lyrics and kinda trippy beats and guitar. This is really beautiful music that instantly brought me into a dream state where I was fantasizing about being in a small bar or coffee house watching Mrs. Volley perform live. I imagine myself after the show stealing a moment where I try and talk business or something.
The older I get the more everything doesn't need to be all angry and chaotic. I can truly appreciate lovely music like this and could see myself going out of my way to attend a live concert. I listened to the whole album for review purposes then relistened to several songs again strictly for my enjoyment.
Here is a free download of my favorite song "Water Is Heavy" off Anda Volley's debut album "Inside The Ghost Machine":

I believe the title of this translates to "Adam And Eve: The First Love Story". I found it while researching Cannibal Holocaust sequels on Youtube. As you can imagine the story of this is a little different then the biblical version. I'm going to go ahead and do spoilers as I am assuming you are not as hardcore as me and don't actually want to watch this movie. If you would rather watch it (it's free) click here.
