Suck Magazine [...]Al Goldstein, the editor and publisher of Screw magazine in New York.
Any time that I publicly stated that I was one of the founders of Suck newspaper of Amsterdam, people would automatically come back and say something about Screw in New York, and I was always forced to elaborate or explain the difference between the two papers. I like Al Goldstein and Jim Buckley, who founded Screw, theyíre friends, but Screw is primarily a male heterosexual humour magazine that uses sexuality as a basis of New York humour. That is not to say that they donít also do a lot of positive good. I think humour is a wonderful medium for transmitting information, but they would rather make a joke about something than ever to deal with something in a serious way. No matter what it is, they joke about it. On the other hand Suck was primarily a sexual liberation newspaper which represented the entire pendulum of sexuality. We had as many women editors as men editors, homosexuality, any so-called perversion ó although I donít think there are any perversions myself. I think itís a fantasy that there are perversions. Any way of expressing oneís sexuality was represented in Suck. And Suck was funny. We used humour, but we also tried to be a serious paper as well. And that was the primary difference between the two: one was Amsterdam European, very wide, and one was New York... what else can one say? -- http://language.home.sprynet.com/otherdex/60snigel.htm [Sept 2004]
