Dusty One-Shot / Free / Fourth-Sized / 8 Pages / firstname.lastname@example.org /Â
One of the zines that just focuses on the lyrics for one song, just like my rendering of â€œTexas On My Mindâ€ by Pat Green, albeit with a lot less in the way of backgrounds. This zine is fairly Spartan, with clip art adorning the pages along with a line or two from Dusty Springfieldâ€™s â€œWishinâ€™ and Hopinâ€™â€, probably the most famous of eirâ€™s songs. While the clip-art is interesting, the last page of the zine is one that really makes it for me. For example, the last page has a picture of Dusty, as well as an excerpt from a piece about her, that discusses the sexuality of Dusty, and eirâ€™s desire to mainly follow the company of women. While I was not aware of this, I really want to know more about eirâ€™s relationships, and maybe some more in the way of quotes would make this magazine better. However, with these clip art insertions and some minor work with stamped-out letters, the zine actually is a fun little ready, and I know that I can hear the lyrics from the original song as I see the lyrics. Fun. The only other thing that I would ask about the zine would be to not use quite as much in the way of paper, as only half the pages have material on them. Iâ€™m guessing that the editor wasnâ€™t able to get double-siding printing, but all and all, this is a minor complaint.
