time, the nihilistic readers of this webzine will be
subjects to a lesson of Polish language. Yes. It's cool
to read about polish zines, but you have to learn; Since
I have became an expert reading "The zines I can't
understand" you will have to learn from the things
I could drag from these 8xA5 pages.
First, if you
want to say the current year, just say "rok"
(Very useful if you use a time machine, land in Poland
and feel an enormous urge to fuck), not like "Rock'n
roll" but like the guy in Sad Ex. Then, if you
one day visit Poland for real and want to tell the policemen
your identity card is a real one, not a false copy,
you will need to say "druk" (Which stands
for something like pro printed or glossy) as opposed
to "ksero" which means xeroxed. If these policemen
aren't cooperative, you could still try to tell them
to speak English... Even if you don't know how to write
3-words-long-sentences in the hard-as-a-rock polish
tongue, a simple "Angielski? Angielski?" might
be enough... And well, if they really insist, you could
still try to show them this copy of HELL PRESS! After
all there are so many toxic paper zines in Poland (Is
there something special in their ground? Chernobyl II?)
that you might be lucky and find a metal policeman!
Ah! So you could try to communicate and "talk"
about all the fanzines reviewed in there... Because
this minizine contains only reviews of other zines ,
mostly polish ones, but also from other countries. The
reviews are quite long so it might be informative. Few
of the zines are older, but what can you do if the editor
wants to talk about his collection? And well, if the
metal policeman is very busy reading articles about
older zines he doesn't own, you could try to escape
and run Héhé... Notice the editor also runs another
minizine called SILESIAN ASSAULT (which contains music
reviews or inties) and contributes to METAL RULEZ webzine.
