32 Days of Halloween VI, Day 27: Spooky...

Back when I was a youngster, somewhere around 1832, there was no access to scary media. (Relax, this isn’t going to devolve into a “we had to trudge through the snow uphill both ways just to fight over a ticket to get into a...

Your Weekend Justice #170: Banned Candy!

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that sells itself door to door, and then you find that our euphemistic chocolate is both retro and disgusting. We also desire freedom for peaceful...

Heavy Metal: December 1978 Cover

Heavy Metal Magazine: Looking Back on...

Since I inherited my father’s collection of Heavy Metal last autumn, I’ve been working my way through the magazines, scanning 12 pages of each and posting them, one a day. While I have been enjoying the primary content...

Your Monday Morning Mental Sorbet: N.16...

Each week we like to give you something to start things off right. Or wrong. Depending on which way the wind is blowing. This week, it’s true that a lot of people are still off work due to the Christmas holiday. However, many people...

Hammacher Schlemmer: 6 Truly Mental Last...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Not Christmas. That, as Dr. Lecter would say, is incidental. No, I’m talking about the Hammacher Schlemmer catalogues that arrive and have completely batshit insane items that are far too...

Your Monday Morning Mental Sorbet: Retro Fu...

When we can find something worthy of your attention, something we feel will kickstart your Monday (and the rest of the week) properly, we put it here. It’s sorbet for your mind. How could I resist this: part of the 1964 serial...

Flight to Mars

32 Days of Halloween V, Movie Night No. 29:...

Since we had so much fun last year with the original Invaders From Mars, it only makes sense to stick with not just our spacey/sci-fi theme…but to go back to Mars! With Flight to Mars! What you will notice when watching this 1951 film...
