Chunklet (magazine)


Chunklet (magazine)

Chunklet (magazine) is a Georgia-based humor and music magazine founded by Henry H. Owings in 1993.

Contents

History

Henry Owings began publishing Chunklet in Athens, GA while freelancing for alternative newsweekly Flagpole Magazine. “The main reason the mag started was due to my dissatisfaction with how my writing was handled in the Flaghole,” Owings says, although he has intimated that Chunklet is a sanctuary for self-hating critics.[1]

Since 1993, Chunklet has published 20 issues on no particular schedule. The first 19 of these are out-of-print. The magazine includes this disclaimer on Chunklet.com: “Chunklet comes out with little regard to a set schedule only because the contributors are busy with their other activities such as being in bands, work, family, putting out records, habitual laziness, television, our lord and savior Jesus Christ and internet porn.” [2]

Issues typically revolve around a central theme, such as Chunklet 15: “Is This Guy The Biggest Asshole in Rock?,” Chunklet 17: “Pay to (NOT) Play” (January 2003), Chunklet 18: “The Overrated Issue” Part One (February 2004), and Chunklet 19: “The Overrated Issue, Part Two” (January 2005). Content generally includes interviews with comedians and indie rock musicians, tour diaries, cartoons, prank correspondence, and satirical essays, lists, hipster how-to guides, and advice columns. Some issues contained premiums like CDs, 7” singles or in the case of Chunklet 17, blank checks made out to “Your Shitty Band.”

Style

Owings cites three main comedic and visual influences: Dave EggersMight magazine, MAD and National Lampoon. Musically, Owings says the fanzines Conflict (published by Matador Records co-owner Gerard Cosloy), Siltbreeze, Forced Exposure, Your Flesh, Touch and Go, Slash and Search and Destroy “were all I ever cared about.”

Chunklet’s caustic, confrontational wit has led to a misconception that Owings and his staff are a bunch of hipster misanthropes who know it all and hate everything.

In a 2008 interview with Rob Harvilla in the Village Voice, Owings explained, “I think we live in a time right now, especially with the Internet, and especially with comment sections on blogs, where everybody can take their potshots—everybody can post anonymously and get their dig in. Fuck that. Everybody knows where I live. Everybody knows that I sign the checks. It has my name on it. You think I'm some kind of chickenshit? Let's talk about the last 10 records each of us bought. Let's talk about how many shows a year we go to. Let's talk about real nitty-gritty stuff, instead of this teeth-clenching hipster fashionista reactionary following of music. Let's talk nitty-gritty. You want to talk history? You want to talk criticism? I'm a fan of all of it. And as a fan, I sometimes take it to extremes.” [3]

Harvilla further explains, “To create the illusion that you hate everything, you have to know everything, and if you're bothered enough to know everything, then you actually must love everything… Henry likens a Chunklet insult to a "Weird Al" Yankovic homage: Grit your teeth and take it as a compliment.” Owings runs with the reputation, and occasionally issues T-shirts with withering yet self-deprecating slogans as “We’re All In This Together… Except You, You’re A Dick” (coined and designed by Mark Wasserman of San Francisco’s Plinko Design – www.plinko.com) and “I Collect Records Because Pussy Hates Me” (created by the Chunklet staff and designed by Chris Bilheimer to commemorate Record Store Day 2010).

Name

Owings lifted the name Chunklet from an ice machine next to which the redneck proprietor was receiving a mani-pedi from his wife and daughter at a run-down convenience store west of Athens.[4]

Connection to Alternative Comedy and Indie Rock Scenes

By 2003, as Chunklet celebrated its tenth anniversary, Owings developed hipster ennui with respect to the “regular” rock or indie circuit and expanded his scope to include the budding alternative comedy movement. The Chunklet 10th anniversary party “was where a lot of the stars aligned” as comedians Patton Oswalt, David Cross and Greg Behrendt were on the bill. Since then, Chunklet regularly features interviews with and contributions from such alt-comedy figures as Oswalt, Cross, Brian Posehn, Maria Bamford, Janeane Garofalo, Paul F. Tompkins, Jon Glaser, Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, H. Jon Benjamin, Bob Odenkirk, and Eugene Mirman. Oswalt, Odenkirk and Posehn also contributed to Chunklet’s The Overrated Book while Oswalt, Mirman and Galifianakis contributed to The Rock Bible.

Controversy

In 1998, the cover of Chunklet 14 titled “Issue 14 (a/k/a The Mad Magazine Issue a/k/a The Cease and Desist Issue”)” resulted in a cease-and-desist order issued from Mad Magazine's legal department.

In 2000, upon publishing Chunklet 15: “Is This Guy The Biggest Asshole in Rock?” Owings received verbal threats from musicians, labels and music fans “due to shit written in (especially) the Asshole issue.” The issue landed Owings on the 2001 Entertainment Weekly “It List” as the “It Agitator.”

Similar reactions followed Chunklet 17: “Pay to (NOT) Play” (January 2003), Chunklet 18: “The Overrated Issue” Part One (February 2004), and Chunklet 19: “The Overrated Issue, Part Two” (January 2005).

In late 2008, Owings began repeatedly instructing Chunklet contributors to “fuck with” the existing Chunklet Wikipedia entry. Shortly thereafter, it was deleted for vandalism.

Staff

For the first nine issues, the Chunklet staff used pseudonyms. Henry Owings: Heimlich the Bastard, Lisa Brown: Noser, John Burrows: Jason Slatton, Jerry Fuchs: Dinglefairy, Jezz Thorpe: Lucky Ducky.
