Video Zine Review #1: Filling The Void

I’ve decided to start doing video zine reviews from time to time. You may have noticed that I haven’t been updating my blog as frequently as I used to. It’s mostly because I just haven’t had the time to do so, and partly because I’d rather be talking than writing these days. I figured this was a fun way to get things going again.

So this is my very first one! In this video, I talk about Filling The Void: Interviews About Quitting Drinking & Using, a comp zine by Cindy Crabb of Doris and her sister Caty. I quit drinking recently, and I have to say that this zine means a lot to me. It’s really great to see people talking about their own experiences with quitting, especially people that are involved in “punk” “communities” and as such, have been able to romanticize a lifestyle that often revolves around getting drunk and fucking shit up. You can get the zine through Fight Boredom Distro, just click on the Zines A-G tab above.

My birthday was last week, and my roommates gifted me with beer. I wasn’t sure how to react, until Brad suggested that I bake beer bread. Smart thinkin’!


Let me just say a quick thank you to everyone who purchased zines during my birthday sale, and who came to see me at Canzine. Y’all are the best! I’ll be adding a lot of new zines to the catalogue over the coming weeks. I’ll also be tabling at the 3rd annual Kingston Zine Fair this Saturday, October 29th at the Artel. Please drop by!

  1. I started to comment on yr blog post with yr zine review video but didn’t think it’d be appropriate so I thought I’d geek out on yr Facebook wall but then just decided to come back here but OMG you are adorable. I hope you continue to do video reviews. It’s just to see you as a person, and be able to “connect” with you on that level. Ah, is that so weird of me to say?! Haha Regardless – Thank you for sharing yourself with the Internet world. <3
