It’s rare to pick up a random zine and feel an instant connection with the author, but Robert Earl Sutter III made me feel right at home with his awesome new zine. First off, when flipped open I saw that the card stock cover had been printed on the back of a café menu. Ahh, a fellow scrounge! Gravity Powered Pockets is “short writings about wild childhood adventures, real wisdom from elders, funny family stories, science articles, and contemplations on music and morality.”I particularly enjoyed the beautiful story about one of his moms being the only transgendered person to have ever escaped Alcatraz. A lot of great information on climate change and what we can do to help, as well as some humorous ways to free yourself from wage slavery. Not only do I want to read more of Rob’s zines, I want to hang out with this guy! –Robin Effup (Robert Earl Sutter III, 628 North 10th Ave E., Duluth, MN 55805)
