Manager #5

zine review:

Manager #5

Manager is a great little quarter-page punk rock zine by a guy who manages a grocery store in Washington. It’s cut­and-paste to the core, complete with tilty text and varying fonts, and reads exactly the way a zine like this should. It’s super sincere, full of Ramones and Minor Threat lyrics, and switches be­tween personal anecdotes (his com­plicated relationship with his son and ex-girlfriend, his inordinate excitement about the store’s new baler plunger) and little punk-rock-manager-specific tips and tricks. There’s a guide to get­ting through job interviews and another about how to test fruit to see if it’s ripe. In addition to being a totally fun read, Manager makes me wish I had a boss as cool as its author. (Emma Healey)
