WHAT IS ALL THAT’S LEFT?

Did you know? Eighteen is turning their All That’s Left zine into a novel with full audio book accompaniment. The original zine stories will be expanded and joined by several new tales of post-binary dystopian cyborg drama. But what is All That’s Left?

all-thats-left-zines-and-cyborg-gear-2

ALL THAT’S LEFT? IT’S A ZINE ABOUT PEOPLE. A NON-LINEAR PIECEMEAL DRAMA. AN OBSESSION WITH THE PRESENT DAY FROM THE FUTURE PAST, AND ALL THE DYSTOPIAN MOVIES, COMICS, AND ANIME OF THE 1980S-90S AND RELATED PERIODS. ALL THAT’S LEFT IS ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH TECHNOLOGY; THE INTIMATE/SEXUALIZED AND TENDER/RELIANT RELATIONSHIPS WE DEVELOP OUT OF OUR PROSTHETICS. ALL THAT’S LEFT MUSES: SEX IS A FREEDOM, PRESENTATION DEMANDS EFFORT; POWER IS WHAT YOU MAKE FROM THE SCRAPS OF THE MATERIAL-HOARDING, SPIRIT-THWARTING AFFLUENT. ALL THAT’S LEFT IS SAD. ALL THAT’S LEFT IS WISTFUL.ALL THAT’S LEFT IS STILL STRUGGLING. ALL THAT’S LEFT IS ABOUT CYBORGS, WHICH IS REALLY ABOUT TECHNOLOGY, WHICH REALLY MEANS TOOL USE, WHICH BEGS THE QUESTION: HOW DO WE SEPARATE OURSELVES FROM OUR TOOLS? ALL THAT’S LEFT IS YOU AND ME.

STYLE OF ATTACK REPORT

METROPOLARITY is a DIY sci-fi collective based, bred, and tested in the colliding future-present of Philadelphia. This Style of Attack Report contains select work from METROPOLARITY's four founding members, who contribute theory, practice, and experience of home grown speculative visioning for both historical documentation as well as personal and collective survival. The collection serves as a model and a record of how Black, brown, queer, low-resource, working, ill and in-recovery people can project themselves into the future, conjuring resources, technology, and magic that aid us in the present.

Also this sci-fi is FIRE cuz the crew don't play.
