Another day, another issue of For Fun Zine…and this one keeps the visual noise coming, as always. There's a whole article--and even an ad--commemorating Market skate shop's 10-Year Anniversary. You should be so lucky to have such a shop in your town. There's also plenty o' collaged coverage on Go Skateboarding Day, when all the Fort Collins locals skated that gay (as in happy) striped ramp that is visible on the cover of this issue; a Photo Gallery of some fantastic shred-sticking; an Undisclosed Location article on a secret halfpipe and accompanying trampoline; a feature on the Midwest Massacre tour through Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin; an article covering 4:20: Le Major Holiday Americano, a major stoner holiday, situated conveniently next to an ad for Kind Creations head shop; and last but not least, some Test Drive product reviews and Brazilian Noise music reviews.

As always, the price of this zine is free, so what are you waiting for? Email Claudio today and order a copy to call your very own. The For Fun Zine Web site is also looking doper than ever. Oh, look. Issues 13 and 14 are already out, and I still don’t have 'em. That's a hint, Mr. Kacky.
