Alex Wrekk, who runs Small World Buttons and wrote the iconic zine guide Stolen Sharpie Revolution, writes her cut and paste personal zine about her life in Portland, Oregon and her ultimately abusive relationship with her husband. As a member of the Portland zine community, Alex's punk roots and age progression (She was born in 1977) are key themes of the zine, as she gets older and comes into herself as an artist and a small business owner. In the second issue labeled number 31, 36-year-old Alex examines her identity as a Portlandian and a small-business owner. She considers how growing into adulthood has impacted her relationship with her parents as well as her sense of "home" after living in Portland for 13 years. The zine includes references to Marty McFly in Back to the Future.
