A pretty straightforward, vintage-style newsletter that focuses on reviews of other zines with a mission statement of keeping underground publishing off of the internet. A noble cause, and while I hate that, say, my e-mail gets skimmed by robots for ads, I still can’t jump completely on board. For one reason, as someone who grew up in a sleepy-ass suburban town, if it weren’t for the internet, I wouldn’t have gotten involved in a lot of stuff (and for anyone who says “the internet wrecks things, because anyone can discover anything,” I say “Then why haven’t The Minutemen sold a million records?”) I’m getting off topic, but I like to think that Jason would at least appreciate that I’m being human about it. Overall, it’s a nice resource that I’m glad exists. –Joe Evans III (Jason Rodgers, PO Box 8512, Albany, NY12208)
