Another set of anecdotes by Dave, Standing Behind Me is a little longer in narration than Sebrakakku. Dave pulls from events beyond just the current, and as such, paints a wide swath of information about who ey is ad why ey is currently ey. A large section of the zine goes into detail about Daveâ€™s college career, a gradual realization that college and eirâ€™s major were not what ey wanted. Right after that, we are taken back in time to Daveâ€™s younger years, during High School and recollecting random facts about that period in eirâ€™s live. What really is striking about Standing Behind Me is the utter lack of bullshit that Dave throws eirâ€™s readers, especially during the piece â€œTrainscumâ€. Instead of making a destructive act (pouring out and then breaking a forty to remember eirâ€™s friend Jim), Dave â€œthrew it down â€“ disgusted and sad. I was expecting to feel better after this weird tributeâ€¦But I still felt the same, overall.â€ I think, out of all the perzines that Iâ€™ve had the pleasure (and displeasure) of reading, that Daveâ€™s hits me the hardest because it is so similar to my NeuFutur â€“ I mean, the writing in Standing Behind Me is beyond excellent, smartly written but still colloquial, and is really down to earth. Instead of being a superhuman (like some of the events described by holier-than-thou zinesters), I can imagine myself in Daveâ€™s shoes. Even if it is just text on a page, the events described in Standing Behind Me are vividly captured to the degree that I can play a mental movie just based on the old black-and-white.
