Summary
Nicole Solomon graduates from high school and attends Eugene Lang while writing this political perzine comprised of articles, book, and zine reviews. Nicole writes about the cable television monopoly, being half-Jewish, race, body image, and the punk/DIY ethic. She reviews books by bell hooks, music cassettes, and zines, and conducts interviews with fellow zinesters in the later issues. Nicole calls for submissions for zines about Star Wars and (primarily female) Jewish identity. This zine contains some handwriting, band photos, soundtrack listings and Hello Kitty clip art.
