from Xerography Debt #26 Review by Eric Lyden
This is the “super sized” final issue which is kind of sad since it was a fine zine, but I guess it’s better to call it quits than to keep on going and doing it half-assed. This is a zine about food and this issue is fairly coffee-centric with writings on coffee from a variety of writers. Everything from a history of coffee to a piece on coffee enemas to why Dunkin’ Donuts is better than Starbucks. But my favorite piece in the issue was Louis Fowler’s article “Stupid Size Me” in which he attempts to make it through a whole week on only $20 worth of groceries because apparently some politician said people wouldn’t need welfare if they only spent $20 a week on groceries. There’s no attribution to this quote so to be honest I have no idea if any politician said anything of the sort. It sure sounds too stupid to be true, but politicians being what they are I wouldn’t put it past them. And the article is entertaining enough that it doesn’t matter. Not only is it funny, it also makes a serious point about why so many poor people are so obese. This zine is good stuff all around. (Posted on 8/10/12)
from Xerography Debt #26 Review by Davida Gypsy Breier
At long last, The Hungover Gourmet returns! This issue’s theme is coffee (disclosure – I extol my love of heartracing Café Bustelo), and there are articles on Dunkin’ Donuts, Wawa obsession (yes, I’m looking at you WPT), coffee in music and history, coffee enemas, and more. Despite its gross-factor, a highlight of the issue was Louis Fowler’s attempt to eat at Big Lots for $20 a week. (Posted on 8/10/12)
