12 pages, magazine size, $?/the usual from Dann Lennard, PO Box A1412, Sydney South NSW 1235, AUSTRALIA + danhelen[at]idx.com.au + www.bettypaginated.blogspot.com
Here's a new zine from Dann 'Betty Paginated' Lennard! BP readers will feel comfortable right from the get go, no need for concern that Dann may have started up a zine trumpeting the benefits of vegan living or bicycle riding and maintenance. No, sir, what you got here is basically BP, abbreviated to 12 pages and all B&W.
After an editorial about the hazards of catching up with old school pals, Dann reports on his 'NaNoWriMo' contribution. This is an abbreviation of 'National Novel Writing Month', where you register, then during the month of November write a novel with a minimum of 50,000 words. A pretty cool idea/challenge, especially for your annoying friend who won't shut up about how he or she is gonna write a novel one o' these days. Haw!
There's also articles on punk band Fang; a legendary wrestling bout between Canadian The Great Antonio and Japan's Antonio Inoki; an interview with Mark 'Chopper' Read (he's got a new book out); pop singers Tiffany vs Debbie Gibson in the movie Mega Python vs. Gatoroid; and other bits and pieces.
