The "Answer Me!" Legacy: Here are the most offensive screeds ever written, by two maligned, misanthropic loose cannons, Jim and Debbie Goad. I remember the shock waves they sent through the punk community and the independent publishing community back in the 90's. I bought issue #4, which glorified rape, when it came out circa 1994 or 1995 (at Quimby's, a zine store in Chicago). That summer, someone would ask, "What do you think of "Answer Me!" ?" on a regular basis. Their colorful writing was underscored by the intense, real tragedies that befell them, in their post-"Answer Me!" moments. (Debbie Goad died from cancer. Jim Goad went to prison. There were also wingnuts who attempted violent crime after reading "Answer Me!"). In the underground press community, Jim and Debbie Goad are iconic. Their personas were fascinating and compelling. Regardless of how you felt about them at the time, you could not look away.

Ten to fifteen years ago, I was against "Answer Me!" I was a riot grrrl, so what do you expect? I was also 15 years old, at the time. I did buy "Answer Me!," but I kept it hidden for about a decade! It was my guilty pleasure!

Now that I am thirty, I completely understand the heavy handed satirical nature of the Goads. Underneath the comical variety of hatred they employed in their reading, I am sure the Goads probably were "hardened realists." However, the remainder of their "written assault on everybody" was comprised of laughable extremism. They were doing a type of performance art at the time, and maturity has crystallized that understand for me. So, I ended up doing a completely 180 degree turn. I really like "Answer Me!" now.

Another thing that has changed my understanding of "Answer Me!" is the shift in our culture's zeitgeist. The 90's did give birth to many "ironic seeds," like "The Simpsons." However, the zeitgeist of 2009 is far more saturated with irony than the early-to-mid 90's was. I really think that if "Answer Me!" was produced today, it would not shock as many people. Afer all, we live in a decade that produced Sarah Silverman, "South Park," and "Borat." Irony is on the brink of being passe. I think that is what made "Answer Me!" so controversial (in the 90's) - the fact that they were writing a highly ironic book, way before their time.

I give "Answer Me!" five stars because it is a work of hysterical genius. ( )
