You!


By Luke

This zine was sent to me by Zinemonger Distro, a distro that distributes free zines. Awesome! Go check out the site to find out how you can get some!

Inside this tiny envelope is a rather innovative zine. It's a double-sided photocopy of a letter written to you. Yes you specifically, it even stars with "Dear You".

The letter is all about how the writer, Luke, just had an awesome band practice and he thinks his new band is really coming together well. His description of the practice room ("the kind of place where you end up when you are kidnapped while you are backpacking around the Czech Republic") and general word choice are all quite good.

The whole thing is more cute then amazing, but it's an amusing little read. I do wonder how much of it is fact and how much is fiction though, I guess I'll never know.
