Lost and Fun

Two covers! How exciting. I guess that makes up for the zine not being stapled. How I hate having to staple other people’s zines. Okay so I don’t have to, but I find it definitely makes for an easier reading experience.

The introduction says that the zine is made up of a combination of things he found in the trash, and things his gave him. I guess I was hoping for a bit more of the found object aspect, as I was a bit disappointed by what was in here.

Of course if I want to look at found objects I can look at various websites all day (though I suppose I could just do that instead of reading any zines), and there is some neat content in here.

There’s a bunch of photos from a photo booth someone claimed to have made in Germany. This raises so many questions. You can make a photo booth? Even if you can, I’m pretty sure it has to be illegal to keep people’s photos and then republish them without their knowledge. I am confused.

There’s also an interview with one of the people in charge of large-scale capture the flag games in London (neat!), a bit of info on nintendocore electronic music (which I’m listening to right now!), a bunch of art (some good, some not so good), and of course, some of the found objects I’d hoped for (which weren’t really that interesting to be honest).
