No Swervice- S.1 E.1 : “Real New York Butts” – The Anti-iPhone Pocket Zine

 

A brainchild of Nick Teodori of Scumco & Sons Skateboards, No Swervice – Season 1, Episode 1: “Real New York Butts” (RNYB) is a pocket zine withholding the same dimensions as an iPhone 5. The anti-iPone zine, the intent of RNYB is to provide pocketable stoke- an analog, tangible alternative to ever-flowing stream of digital media content such as that from Instagram.

Curated by Isaac McKay Randozzi, Real New York Butts features art and skate photos from some of your favorite artists & photographers such as Ben Horton, Ben Colen, Andy Jenkins, Porous Walker, Brian Gaberman, Rodent, Russ Pope, J Strickland, Soy Panday, Eric Palozzolo, and many more.

There is no set schedule for further release dates of the No Swervice zine series, but we’re already stoked to see what’s in store for the next one.

 

 

One in the same, yet slightly less functional.

The zine fits comfortably in your hand and is super fun to flip through, until you run out of battery, that is.

 

 

If you can’t find it at your local skateshop, you can purchase Real New York Butts here on Scumco’s webstore.

 

 

Still hungry? Save a few bucks by buying the shirt and zine combo meal here.
