The East Village Inky #50
The fabulous East Village Inky is Ayun Halliday's mega-awesome per-zine about living life in New York City and navigating the wild and complex (and totally insane) fantasy-beast that is her immediate vicinity (and if you don't think a vicinity can be a beast, you haven't read this zine; we're talkin' pegacorn crossed with a Care Bear crossed with Max Headroom). Now on its 49th issue, Ayun's zine just keeps getting better, and those of us who've been following along since the early days will always feel like some kind of fringe-branch cousin to her lovable, chaotic, always-in-motion family (for newbies, the zine gets its name from Ayun's daughter, India. India, as in ink.) The word on ish 50 from Ayun herself: "In which the feral young get ever longer in the tooth, big changes are alluded to, and the zinefests just won't quit. In honor of our Golden Jubilee, this is the zine-iest issue in East Village Inky history: reviews, fest reports, zinester glitterati and rising stars rendered in pen, ink, and copious amounts of Japanese white out. Neighborhood Celebrity Sightings! Vacation Planning Drama in Real Life! A Spanish speaking raspberry and a recipe for Raspberry Jalapeno Soup! 40 jam-packed, fun-filled, handwritten and illustrated pages in a handy pocket-sized format. Unparalleled reading for toilet, subway, nursing in public places, or the Chinatown Bus to your next zinefest." Much recommended! Hella fun! Woo!
