Filler #1 ? Finally, a magazine that really lives up to this title. The “Filler” in the eponymous zine really is of the highest quality, specifically “A Burning Question?” which details a worker from the Lipton Tea Factory?s descent into madness, which was triggered by drinking the enemy, coffee. A piece from the editor, Faith Holland, is chock full of the same sentiment that you would find in something like an emo song, which shows the most strong of all emotions, that of loss. The only problem that I could conceivably see with the magazine would be its high dependence on poetry, which takes up about four and a half pages out of the twelve of the first issue. The only caveat that I would issue with this review is that Filler has a double whammy, in that this is the first issue of the magazine and that, being a contribution-based magazine, that she might not have received enough submissions. My answer to this would be: Send her stuff! E-mail stuff to Faith at firstname.lastname@example.org , or call her at 914-715-9147, or visit her website at http://www.angelfire.com/zine2/filler/index.html.
