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.

Kim’s zine “Goat Farm” 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, “musings of a metal muff”, 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 “The Five Most Metal Animals” section, and includes a guide for spotting “The Types of Metal Heads”. Kim combines musical experiences with personal writing to create a unique, informative 24 hour zine.

Her black and white zine incorporates free-flowing text, with subject matter jumping from present tense adventures to daydreams of a life as an artist, with journals, notes, and music filling each day of her life, pasted over high contrast images and photographs. Dina’s zine is the perfect read to get you into the summer feeling.
