What is Tape Mold? It's an underground DIY zine aimed at VHS collectors. The horror-leaning rag is spearheaded by Dan Kinem of VHShitfest. I just finished reading the second issue, and I don't mind giving it my Robert Z'Dar-shaped stamp of approval (a distinguished insignia, to be sure). One of the reasons why I wanted to plug it is because I'm actually writing a review for an upcoming issue. Like I said, Tape Mold leans in the direction of the horror genre, but it covers VHS oddities of all stripes. I particularly enjoyed Kinem's laudatory portrait of BBW porn star pathfinder Big Bad Bertha (pictured above). I can't say that I'm in a hurry to acquire a copy of Oil of L.A., though.
I'll let you guys/gals know when my work is published. In the meantime, pick up the second issue of Tape Mold HERE.
