Read in January, 2008

heavy on jargon but never fully and clearly explained. self-congratulatory and offering few alternatives between corporations (bad) and a diy punk underground (utopia). lots of anecdotes and annoying footnotes with useless asides about how the author has donated all of her zines and how she felt about barbie growing up. her "shopdropping" episode at american girls store was written up like it was revolutionary and daring but i would argue that it was inappropriate and lame. i wanted to learn something from this but i found it trite (ps i only read the first half - life is too short). i would have preferred to read something more scholarly and less self-aware (and self-obsessed).
