My Idea of Fun: An Interview with Anne Elizabeth Moore

By Matt Dineen

Is it possible to follow your passions, to do what you truly love to do, without compromising your values? What about meeting basic human needs? Can it be done? Some people struggle most of their lives to obtain this dream, but eventually submit to a job that goes against their beliefs or end up starving to death in the street. But others have proved to us that it is possible. You really can live a life that is consistent with your values, pursue the things you love, and still afford food and rent.
Anne Elizabeth Moore is one of those rare people. She has been involved with independent publishing her entire adult life and recently published her own book, Hey Kidz! Buy This Book: A Radical Primer on Corporate and Governmental Propaganda and Artistic Activism for Short People, with Soft Skull Press. Last year, she became the associate publisher for Punk Planet and Punk Planet Books, and has continued to write for a number of other independent publications.
 In a recent appearance in Madison, WI, she read her first hand account of the consequences for attempting to radicalize the clientele of the American Girl Place in Chicago. The following morning we met for breakfast at Bennett’s Smut n’ Eggs, before migrating to a coffee shop where we discussed the dilemma of following one’s passions while surviving in this world.

When you are faced with the question, “What do you do?” how do you usually respond?

Yeah—I respond by giggling, turning away nervously, and changing the subject. However, I assume you want an actual response...
