Zine review time. This week I’ll be taking a look at an interesting little publication called PepBoyZine. This is the first issue of PepBoyZine, and it focuses on the Chinatown Soccer Club, a collection of New Yorkers who have been meeting at the Chrystie street soccer field to lay on the ground hold their shins…

Public service Announcement: Monster Children Sydney has moved. You can now leave flaming paper bags of shit at our new address, 1 block down the road. Laziness prevailed on moving day and all of our memories went out the window into a huge dumpster instead of the removal truck. Then we slept in it. Wanna…

NEW MUSIC: TWIN PEAKS

This is not Castel del Monte. This is the Vendome and it was built in 1965. The lovely young lass in frame is Lola and she frequents the Vendome. She is however perfectly symmetrical.
SMOKE: Stolen ‘Coffee & Cigarettes’ Spiced Rum
I actually drank some of this last night at an art opening. Stolen ‘Coffee & Cigarettes’ Spiced Rum and Coke. The girl pouring gave me a wink and an extra-long shot. ‘Don’t wink at me, lady,’ I said, ‘you don’t know what it means.’
FROM THE MAG: ANTON CORBIJN
There was no escaping the Nick Cave Fever that engulfed Los Angeles last week. I caught his performance at The Ace Downtown, but to call it a performance is a short sell – it was truly an experience teetering on religious.
PLAYLIST: MC CROSS-COUNTRY ROAD TRIP
These are the songs from our recent cross-country trip. It’s about 30% Bad Seeds. If it were an honest playlist from our trip, it’d be 90% Bad Seeds, because that’s almost all we listened to.
SMOKE: The Etnies Marana E-Lite
I met Ryan Sheckler while we were shooting his story for the Mike D issue. He (Ryan) was a super nice dude. Tripped me out how much he got recognized, though. Everywhere we went people would run up and ask to get their photo with him. He was always really cool about it. I got…

Punch The Camera is a photo zine…but it’s pretty good quality so I wonder if it qualifies as a zine…Who cares, it’s cool and I like it and I’m the reviewer here. Issue 04 of Punch The Camera is very, very nice. More than that, it’s nice as fuck. This issue features photography from Sebastien…
