Who and What We Are

Xerography Debt is a review zine for zine readers by zine writers (and readers). It is a hybrid of review zine and personal zine (the ancestor to many blogs). The paper version has been around since 1999. This blog thing is are attempt to bridge the gap between Web 2.0 and Paper 1.0. Print is not dead, but it is becoming more pixelated.

Review: PILTDOWNLAD #1: GÜERO CHINGÓN #1-5

Piltdownlad #1: Güero Chingón #1-5
These five, short mini-zines squeeze out the rawness of childhood into something distilled that causes your breath to catch. The first issue explains how, in an act of self-protection in shop class, the narrator becomes Güero Chingón. The second reveals how he figured out panhandling. #3 involves more childhood violence and the odd workings of childhood frienemys. The fourth is tragic and made me want to remove all the matches from my home. The final volume was about new clothes and the cruel pantomime of boys and girls. Recommended.
