Zine Review: Static Zine #9


Static Zine

Zine, Issue 9, March 2014, staticzine.com, $2

Gather ‘round the table friends and behold the Torontonian feast that is the ninth issue of Static Zine. Over 20 contributors make their mark on this food-themed issue, with contents ranging from recipes, perzine-style entries, fiction and notated music for ukulele.

Like any compilation zine, the pieces vary in quality. Standouts include Jordon R A’s beautifully illustrated “Pumpkin Island” comic, Emily Craske’s illustration “When is it a good time to eat pizza?” (the answer: sad, drunk, high, happy, etc.), the collaborative piece “What would your last meal be?  and another illustration, Tom Lowery’s “Mom Art” featuring diagrams for cutting toast.

Even if the content is uneven, it’s still fun and it seems like everyone involved had fun contributing. Most contributions are single-pagers; so if you get bored, skip it! To top it all off, the Static crew gives a link to an online mixtape to accompany #9, chock full of food-titled songs (Bob Wills’s “Tater Pie”, Hank Williams’s “Jambalaya”) – all pre-1970! Pick this one up, hungry old-music aficionados! (Joshua Barton)

  1. Howdy! This article could not be written much better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept talking about this. I am going to forward this article to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a great read. I appreciate you
    for sharing!

  2. Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.

    Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a honest price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

  3. Hi fantastic website! Does running a blog such
    as this take a lot of work? I have no understanding of coding however I was hoping to start
    my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners
    please share. I know this is off topic however I simply
    needed to ask. Kudos!

  4. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but
    it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you
    know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.
