retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

"movie monsters,"1975: bag your face

when i was like in first to third grade, we had this thing in school where you were given these "scholastic books" pamphlets and if your parents let you and gave you bucks, you could order book(s) through it.

i dunno if it was me or my brothers who ordered this book, but i recall it being an important part of our kid library.

it's "movie monsters," published 1975, by alan ormsby. apparently this feller is now a big horror movie guy and also obviously a great illustrator as he drew all the enclosed drawings.

i thought that for a kid publication, it was informative and engaging.

the following always intrigued me, although i don't think i ever made one: make your own bag head frankenstien monster haid!

i vividly recall my brother making the above annotation on the finished product with my fisher-price typewriter. the logic behind the annotation, however, is vague...

I made that thing when I was a kid. Mine never turned out like the one in the picture. I appreciate F A R T and can understand why your brother did it. it just makes good sense!
