This cover of Screenland would undoubtedly draw readers, with the lipstick red cover, sultry redheaded siren and the bold, all-caps question, "IS NUDITY IMMORAL?" (within the issue itself, there is some nudity, by the way, so I guess that kind of answers the question!). There are some other interesting articles too, such as '"Bad" Films … Continue reading Screenland Magazine, February 1923
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=et6ALAPVLH4 I love a good 1970's disaster flick! Meteor stars Sean Connery, Natalie Wood ( ❤ ), Henry Fonda and Brian Keith. A meteor dubbed Orpheus is heading straight for the earth, causing devastating destruction around the world before it even hits. The US has no choice but the team up with the USSR to … Continue reading Meteor, 1979
As previously promised, here is a list of all the pulp novels I know to be digitized and available for free online. This list will (hopefully) continue to be added to as I find more sources, as it stands, this is what I have been able to find so far on Internet Archive. If you … Continue reading Digitized Pulp Novels!
I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a sucker for these kinds of books. In Murder, Lies and Cover-Ups, David Gardner takes on five very high profile and incredibly tragic deaths - that of Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy, Elvis Presley, Princess Diana and Michael Jackson - and attempts to expose them as (potential) murders, … Continue reading Murder, Lies and Cover-Ups, by David Gardner, Review

I still remember Columbine and how … Continue reading March For Our Lives
Back in October of 1923 for 25 cents you could buy a copy of Screenland Magazine and read all about the "honeymoon"/marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Rodolf Valentino, as told by Mrs. Valentino herself!

I'm so excited about this interview! As someone who loves vintage mysteries, noir and detective fiction and has always wished that she could live in her favourite books, films, and tv shows, Flame Noir was an amazing find! Jennifer's scented candles are not merely an homage to some of our favourite detectives, they actually help … Continue reading Interview with Jennifer of Flame Noir Candle Company!
Sometimes life gets really stressful - understatement of the year, right? - and you need to make self-care a priority (something that Laura of Sew For Victory always puts so beautifully and eloquently in her Sewing For Self Care posts). This is something I know, and preach, but don't always practice myself. The last week … Continue reading One Witty Gypsy, Mend Bath Salts Review
What a bizarre find this was! A "comic" about how to deal with natural disasters as told by "Mr. Civil Defense"! This is from 1956 and I found it, as always, on Internet Archive. A little peek at some of the content: You can check it out or download your own copy here!
A little while back, thanks to the recommendation and tips from the lovely Elena, I removed the motor (and some other parts) from my Singer 128-13, which was having a LOT of problems that I just couldn't fix, and hooked it all up to my lovely Singer 127. Zelda Zonk, my 127, was a very … Continue reading It’s Alive! My Dr. Frankenstein/Joseph Swan Moment
