Slug & Lettuce-Issue #64

Jun-Aug 2000/ Free-17 by 11.5, Newspaper style. Very small print. The opening article is incredibly well-written, who is accomplished enough to write for Maximum Rocknroll. The ads are very heavily interspersed in the magazine, but it makes sense, as Chris(tine) (the editor) needs some source of income for this very awesome magazine. “Zero Content” is a very funny and professionally drawn comic, of which I would like to see more. “Adrianne” column brings up some relevant points as the article describers her evolution from being a feminist to an humanist. Mike Antipathy’s “Ecopunk” article is very expertly written, entwined with humor, chronicling the revitalization of an anarchist once thought to be going to pasture. “Guerilla Gardening in North Oakland” is one of the highest points of the magazine, filling me with eco-friendly ideas that I always desire to do but will forever be too lazy. The book reviews in Slug & Lettuce are informative to the greatest degree, even more so then the zine reviews on the following page. In fact, after the 6th page, all of the reviews stretch to page 17, which is a tad bit long for my tastes. The articles in the magazine are of the level I would strive to have in this magazine, but the reviews just simply go on too long. The classifieds are terse, to the point, and even the fact that this magazine is about a year old doesn’t stop me from reading them. One of the things that I have to praise the workers at Slug & Lettuce for is the fact that they don’t cater to any specific genre of music. Send 55C to Slug & Lettuce c/o Christine, PO Box 26632, Richmond, VA 23261-6632. Keep in mind the age of this magazine, and I implore you to ask for current prices
