Porch Beers - Issue 4 - All the Bacon and Eggs You Have
Porch Beers issue 4 - August 2022
"There's a philosophy that food is just fuel, a means to get from the AM to the PM. If that's how you conduct life, that's all good. Maybe I'll believe that to a pathological end (insert photo of my weight here) food is something that transcends simple nutrition - it's almost a spiritual experience. Cooking is a ritual, quite literally at times in my spiritual practice. The restaurant, a temple to good food and/or community. And restaurant workers? Angels on earth, without whom the temples would collapse in ruin."
Issue #4 is black and white photo copied and 5.5 X 8.5. It's 44 pages total.
Elliott Stewart spent most of his life in Huntington, WV and surrounding areas, minus a few hiatuses. Elliott has been making zines since he was thirteen. These days, his writing is slice of life storytelling through a critical, personal-is-political lens. He's especially fascinated by the intersection of people's personal experiences with pop culture and "low brow" entertainment. Some of his influences include Harvey Pekar, John Hodgman, Hanif Abdurraqib, and Nick Hornby. He loves highlighting the Mountain State and Huntington in particular in his writing, from colloquialisms and a love of hot dogs to larger values like community and DIY.
