BACKWAVES: 4” x 4”, copied, 16 pgs.

I can’t handle how funny this zine is. Alanna reviews a few of Richard Simmons’ Sweatin’ to the Oldies tapes, complete with sections like “Richard’s Outfit,” “Best Lines,” and “Sweat-a-bility.” In the re-reads I go straight for the Best Lines. My favorite is “LET THAT FAT JUST WANDER OFF!” from STTO #4. Even though I haven’t seen the tapes, I can just picture them so perfectly. That’s probably because the all-caps quotes from Richard really set the scene. I like how she gets into what extras are doing/wearing and the details about the sets. Also: Dolphin Shorts.
