[outside cover - black felt]
Goat Farm by Kim Riot
Name: Kim Riot
City: San Diego, CA
Zine Goal: A docu-mini style zine dedicating my years living and
breathing heavy metal as a girl.
Kimâ€™s zine â€œGoat Farmâ€ is the first zine I have ever received that featured felt as the cover, which really makes her zine stand out, and ties in perfectly with the overall theme. Staying true to the subtitle, â€œmusings of a metal muffâ€, Kim retells of her experience as a female in the metal scene, and memories of the mindset and behavior of the ladies at shows she attended. Kim also includes an awesomely collaged â€œThe Five Most Metal Animalsâ€ section, and includes a guide for spotting â€œThe Types of Metal Headsâ€. Kim combines musical experiences with personal writing to create a unique, informative 24 hour zine.
