Most reviews of THE INNER SWINE begin with the sentence: “What can I possibly say about TIS that hasn’t already been said?”
Well... this review is no different.
TIS has been around longer than God. This is the “Writing the Inner Swine Way: Helper Monkeys and Bullshit” and I had the same two reactions that I always have when reading an issue of TIS. My first reaction when starting an article in TIS is, “Haven’t I read this piece in a slightly varied form in a previous issue of The Swine?” And my second reaction is to laugh my ass off throughout the first half of the zine. Then, when I reach the fiction section of the zine (usually somewhere around page 30) I think, “Jesus, hopefully I’ll be able to write this well one day... the bastard!” (Posted on 8/10/12)
