If you’re cool enough to know that zines aren’t dead, you may want to check out the Brooklyn Zine Fest at the Public Assembly on April 15. If you’re not that cool, do your taxes instead.
I’m very proud of my brother and Kseniya for co-organizing this event, even if I’ll be too busy doing taxes to attend. But if you can’t attend, you should still buy their zine. Each issue of I Love Bad Movies is themed, and this issue’s theme is “Early & Late Roles” or “Before & After They Were Famous.” I LOVE BAD MOVIES Vol. 5 is available on Etsy for $5.00, and it’s worth the price even if you just read the lead essay!
I wrote the lead essay. You’re probably thinking that I wrote about Sylvester Stallone, but you’re way off. I wrote about Arnold Schwarzenneger. And seriously you guys, I had to watch Hercules in New York ALL THE WAY THROUGH, often rewinding to watch scenes during which I had zoned out, in order to write this review. So even if you think I’m probably going to give you a free copy, support the arts people.
