Street Pixie is a DIY/anarchist/nomad per-polit-zine. There are an incredible amount of pieces to feast upon in this issue for people of all stripes. There is poetry, prose, how-to pieces, art, and tons more. For one dollar, it really is a steal. The layout of the pieces is probably the only thing to be changed, as there seems to be various â€œlumpsâ€ of material that seem to drag the moment of the zine down. While the prose poetry written by Allison in a section of the zine is quite well done, it is all together and individuals may feel a bit logy after such an extensive focus on these pieces. Fortunately, the quotes that follow these pieces really do much to bring the zine back to a fever pitch. However, I feel that the most important pieces of this issue of Street Pixie really come in the recipes and the reprinted â€œContents of Your Daily Lifeâ€, which are laid out together. The very simple vegan-friendly recipes are always helpful, as there still is only the most miniscule fraction of vegan recipes to the books and books of non-vegan friendly pieces. â€œThe Contents of Your Daily Lifeâ€ is a written epiphany designed to shock individuals into rethinking the monotony that they consider work (with such statements as â€œCan you put a value on a beautiful day, when the birds are singing and people are walking around together?â€). Street Pixie has someone that just does not talk about what needs to be done, but someone that actually does that. Smartly using methods described in the â€œHealth and Safety in Militant Actionsâ€ zine, Rosie struggles against the system. This zine has everything, and it is only a dollar (or trade). Find eir and get a copy, maybe treat eir to dinner too!
