A5/16 pages-$1/trade. Another hard hitting installment from Mike and Jay. Various improvements have been made since the first issue, including a hell of a lot more use of a computer from the first. The cover art is simply great, and these guys are as arrogant as they ever have been, and they also donâ€™t let musical articles stifle their creativity . Most interesting in the magazine is the inclusion of the Road Warriors as the thematic high point of the magazine. The choice of articles in the magazine is a little bit better then in the first issue, showing a progression in this publication. Unfortunately, they seem to be trying to squeeze too much shit into these sixteen pages, in what should be a 20 page magazine. The pictures that livened up the first issue are cut down in the second issue. â€œWhenâ€™s Lunch Part IIâ€ is a weaker sequel, but all other articles totally blow the content of the first issue out of the water. The piece de resistance of the issue would have to be the â€œShitty Jobsâ€ article, which details Mikeâ€™s experiences as a Jizzmopper, a position he was only paid $7/hour for. The interview with Carson Daly, written by Jay Pud, catches the humour that the original â€œWhenâ€™s Lunchâ€ had. The â€œresponseâ€ to what was Lil Bow Wow Like which was â€œA little sloppy but he served his purposeâ€ is destined to gain some popularity, even if just in zine-markers circles. Another reason why the second issue completely dominates the first one is that the explanation for why they named the zine thusly is finally explained. A very valid viewpoint is explained in â€œBen Affleck is not a War Heroâ€ which fights all of the fucks that would change history just for a quick buck, like on â€œPearl Harborâ€ and â€œTitanicâ€.
