LICKETY SPLIT 3 [ed. Amber Goodwyn]
Much of the writing in the third issue of Lickety Split is disjointed, scattered and hard to follow. However, one piece stands out entitled C is for Camaro by Natasha L. What makes it unique is that it reads like a hot piece of trashy hetero 50s porn with a slick dude and a horny girl. However, as the story unfolds and we get to the sex scene in the bathroom of a movie theatre, the slick dude is described as having a vagina and the whole thing explodes into a gender f**k. I like subversion.
To this zine's merit, it provides quality art and photography. And, as much as straight and lesbo hipster smut is the farthest thing from my sexual tastes, I would still quickly pick up a new issue because it is the type of zine that is trying to set a new standard amongst its peers.
