Refuse Refuse

Catalog Number: 
zine, Refuse Refuse
Date: 
2007
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"Our project Refuse, Refuse, doesn't sit all that comfortably with...ideas...that insist that the mechanisms that created global warming and other ecological disasters are the ones to solve them. We think that our engineering practices have brought us to our current environmental and cultural situation and that there is no better way to deal with the constant stream of waste running out of our factories than to stop, to refuse refuse. We are both attracted and repelled to the idea of creating a solution out of the problem. Being able to create a new home out of recycled materials, or to inject the atmosphere with tiny reflectors to redirect heat away from the planet are both beautiful and Sisyphean. In this book, you will find experiments with trash in Chicago and Aberdeen." (abstract is taken from the first page of the zine.)

2004
Edition: 
First edition
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"The collected signature poems of Billy Tuggle show the unified vision and clear voice that has carried Tuggle as a representative of Chicago into the 2004 and 2005 National Slam Poetry Championships. An accomplished vocalist and human beat-box combines the melody and rhythms of his other passions in poems that ring with the call for social justice, the tolerance for differences, and the pride in ethnic roots that is the delightful and moving legacy of a retired graffiti artist."

the non stop

Catalog Number: 
zine, the non stop
Date: 
1990s
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
An in your face angst ridden zine with prose that uses the food service industry as a metaphor for the objectification of women, social conformity and rape culture.
Language: 
English
Notes: 
I argue this is 1990s era because of the way it looks but also because it does mention the riot girl movement very briefly as a popular fashion aesthetic.
