    1. "Zines" are not only a huge part of pop culture and teenage nostalgia (was I the only one who would collect all kinds of weird little zines when I was a kid?), but they also portray the history of the times. This book is one of the best anthologies of this material that I've ever read.

    2. Rarely before has a book of any sort served as such an otherworldly experience. Much like "A Crackup at the Race Riots," these collected fanzines challenge the separation between fantasy and reality--loveliness and repulsion. For instance, a great majority of this collection consists of celebrity rumors (such as "LLARY KINGS FEET STINK" and "The Oak Ridge Boys smile upon incest") that certainly blur what is merely from Korine's warped mind and what is actually true. Some of these 'zines are wond [...]

    3. If you can find it, get it. Or at least look through director Harmony Korine's (Gummo, Spring Breakers, Mister Lonely, etc) zines from the 90s. Laughed out loud and blushed on the bus.

    4. This isn't so much of a book as it is a way to look into someone's creative process. You see small jokes in here that Harmony has told in interviews over the years and included in movies and his novel. There's little ideas floating around throughout all of his work and with these zines you can see how long he's thought about them and which ideas or notions possessed him the most early on in his career. I'm a big fan of his films, so his style in this book didn't feel jarring or unorganized like [...]

    5. I always see reviews of Harmony's material stating that he rips everyone off, or that he's a con artist. Personally, I'm very captivated by almost everything he's ever done. Something about his style interests me to the core. Although, I initially was very disappointed in this collection, it began to grow on me. I preferred A Crackup at the Race Riots over this, though. I seriously want Harmony to write more books. Any film he can't get made, he should turn into a novel, in my opinion. This defi [...]

    6. This is a box set collection of old zines that Harmony used to do (some with the help of Mark Gonzales). It's a bit repetitive content-wise, but because it's Harmony (and I like his movies a lot) there is a certain kind of weirdo mystique. His use of slander and misspellings (Whitney Huston, Jhon Bulushie, Richard Gear) is pretty ridiculous and funny.

    7. That the emptiness of the material is clearly purposeful is not something to praise. Is there anything more boring than art that makes itself immune to criticism? Anti-art of this type began with Duchamp's Fountain and probably should have ended there.

    8. I don't know why I put off this book so much but it has some great insight into Harmony's process. Definitely in his use of humor and trying to figure out how it works. A bit like a Richard Prince painting. Take the time. Some of the zines are actually complex, even with the shitty scrawl
