Zine Cataloging Report, January 31, 2011
Smartest Girls in Town, by Roberta Forsyth and Catherine Osbourne, 1998: Zines A87s
“[Zines] are responses to what is not already out there, and they are about individual expression that includes social retorts and political animus, solitary digressions and cogent confessions. For many, the motivation to make a zine is quite simple: I’ve got something I want to say and no one else is saying it for me.”

Smile for Me #s 1 & 3 by Ananda La Vita, 1993- : Zines L3858s
“‘we’re all just human beings.’ from the mouths of white punk boys, and maybe some girls, you’ve probably heard quotes like these. well i for one can hardly stand another word out of them, especially when used against Riot Grrrl. i think the humanist view is 100% flawed, ignorant, and contributing to oppression.”
