Space Age Ash Tray #2

For this second issue of this here ‘Space Age’ culture zine, we take more than a toe dip into the 1980 movie musical, Xanadu starting Olivia Newton-John & Gene Kelly. The movie might have originally died in the box office, but its legacy still lives on with fans….like yours truly.



How this film has survived and how it fits into all this is examined with some of the various Xanadu related articles I’ve written for web sites, zines and other formats over the years; highlights from…

Twilight World #18

This issue of TW goes a “zine retro” by taking a step back to 5 ½ to 8 ½ digest size. Smaller size but more pages, 18 big small ones!

This time, two damned Vegas trips are chronicled, proof of Vegas culture is examined as I attended a comic/book fest with an appearance of F. Andrew Taylor and son, see a show by Olivia Newton-John and a rare appearance by Shumuck-O Rat!

As mentioned before, this issue is digest size, 16 B&W pages and comes with a $2 dollar price…

Space Age Ash Tray #1

SPACE AGE ASH TRAY #1



The easiest way to describe this zine is that it’s similar to VH1’s old I Love The 70’s/80’s/90’s/etc., only without the smarminess amidst the cultural deconstruction and this covers the 60’s and 70’s…..and I’m not a celebrity. This is just a collection of notes and artwork covering the era I grew up in but too young to remember.



This first issue covers by background and why I’m rehashing it, a photo essay on apartment signage and ‘tiki’ in my hometown…

8-TRACK MIND #101 review

This following is a small review of the new issue of Twilight World:

8-Track Mind #101 $3

(no address given)



Can fragments of the old and obsolete of decades past like the 8-track tape format be seriously considered beyond nostalgia? It’s a basic idea a lot of people can’t get their collective heads around….much less know what 8 track tapes are.



I knew what they were, but until I found 8 Track Mind, I didn’t see much in them either. I’m not much of an audiophile…

TWILIGHT WORLD #11

Another damned quarter and it’s time for yet another damned issue of my quarterly perzine/bitch-fest TWILIGHT WORLD. Its issue #11 and, this time, 12 pages crammed with my personal reasons I don’t have care much for 1980’s music with some possible exceptions like Swing Out Sister, Negativland and Was (Not Was). Plus, I dig an old “dairy” from my New Orleans trip from six months after Katrina where I end up on the first Grey Line Katrina tour.



Fortunately, I only had… Continue

TWILIGHT WORLD #10

In this perzine bitchfest, I force myself to relive my ever-so-brief glory days of working at a comic store (two weeks worth) and paying the price of watching The Gong Show in public. Plus, very brief notes on surviving Mardi Gras and the vortexes in Sedona, Arizona…and then yer standard reviews.



This sucker is 12 B&W pages, 8 x 11 and comes with a $2 price tag. No trades to prisoners!



Send interest, money and good trade to:
