DUDES MAGAZINE #17: $5, 8 ½” x 11”, printed, 92 pgs.

What we have here is a really thick zine with a nice glossy and thick stock cover. With a nice-sized group of contributors, Dudescovers a variety of topics—from an interview with In Defence to a criticism of Glenn Beck. A lot of ground is covered. I enjoyed the article, “Bitch Names in Sports,” because it featured one of my favorite former Detroit Tigers, Rusty Kuntz. I’m not much of a “dude,” sort of guy, but I found lots of interesting things to read that made up for the “dudeness,” aspect of the zine. Dudes also features interviews with the Dopamines, Holy Shit!, and Tony Weinberger (organizer of The Fest) and came with a CD sampler that I’m looking forward to listening to. –Dudes Mag, 3872-A, Connecticut St., St. Louis, MO, 63116
