In 2010, I’d like to lay down the gauntlet to all zine punks and entreat you: Please, please, please, if you can, don’t take the Greyhound for more than a couple hundred miles if you can help it. With a little pre-planning, you can get to your destination faster and cheaper. Leave the romance of the trip to when you arrive and keep the bus for your last resort. That said, Steve Larder (some of you may know him from such hits as the author of the always-excellent Rum Lad and the illustrator of the Razorcake cover with The Brokedowns), an Englishman found out two things the hard way. 1.) How fuckin’ big America is, even from Baton Rouge to Portland, Oregon. 2.) How dreadfully slow and torture-y Greyhound is. But Steve’s got that knack. Even while in the uncomfortably seated, rolling water board of diesel and broken America(ns), Steve come across as an affable, compassionate guy, taking lumps, quietly ruminating, having conversations, smelling smells, and ultimately enduring a bad decision without sounding like a crybaby or without trying to twist the journey into something epic.Three Days… is a recommended one-off from an undeniably talented zinester. –Todd ([email protected])
