Wasted Opportunities is a really well done DIY zine made by one person from Australia. It starts out with the author’s top picks of 2012 and goes into an interview with pop punk band The Capitalist Kids. The interview is very in-depth. It asks tons of questions and spans almost half of the entire publication. The interviewee gives really solid and well-explained answers. After the interview, there is a few page rant on the new Star Wars movie I’m sure all you nerds have heard about, which basically says what we already know but don’t want to admit: there will never be another Star Wars that will be as good as the original or quench our blood lust for how episodes one through three turned out. There are a few reviews at the end, which are pretty detailed and provide album artwork as well. All and all, a great DIY zine that fans of pop punk in particular should check out. –James Meier (Justin, PO Box 145, Royal Brisbane, Herston, QLD, Australia 4029)
