“So how do you like that new photo copied magazine. NO ITS A ZINE DO NOT CONFUSE THE TWO”. The past underground form of publicized opinion on topics that vary from all assortments. This published piece by individuals across america has reached over 20,000 fans. Though I feel it can be compared to and considered a blog posts zines stand on there own. they come in ways of hand written work to type up group ideas with vivid view points and facts more structured in a people to people conversation and a more political look in most cases differentiating it from a main stream advertised magazine its a people to people publication and doesn’t deal with the mass appeal on one topic because it doesn’t grant power to just one writer or view point
The truth is what we all seek. Which brings us to the question what is the truth? Humans absorb information everyday and we filter what is logical from illogical. The idea is some of us are well more informed then others when it comes to filtering data. Our filters have a foundation created by who ever raised us. Then it is the world that we interact with that really structures our information filtering. Thomas Eland touches on this, suggesting we should question our information suppliers, and look at alternative media to be well informed. Fred Wright, gives us a history of zine always being an alternative media. People have personal ideas, they wish to voice. Zine gives us a easy opportunity to nakedly express our ideas. “Zines 101 – A Quick Guide to Zines,” is evidence to the easy process of creating and sharing your idea. In my opinion, the truth is what we believe and how long we believe it for.
