The Zine Scene: VIDEO CONFIDENTIAL is a blog!

Exciting news, guys and gals: The late lamented Video Confidential, the fanzine Carl Morano and Eric Mache co-founded and published in the 1990s, has been resuscitated by Mr. Morano as a blog, and he'll be posting new material as well as scans of the old issues. Carl has a few posts up so far, including the double issue #31/32 (Fall & Winter 1995) and #37 (Fall 1997). He's just getting started with this blogging thing, so we encourage everyone to boogie on down to the party and give him your support.
