2006 British Bike Burnup

My buddy Ralph had his annual British Bike Burnup this weekend. From miles around, British bike owners came to this rally to show their wheels and talk RPMs. They show up and park on the sidewalk outside Ralph's hip store, "the Hollywood 5 & Dime". The makes eligible for the show were Triumph, BSA, BMW, Norton, etc....vintage and new.
Penny was supposed to ride her Triumph up there, but she was too tied up with work. I went by myself and took some pics. (click 'em for larger images)

Lined up on the sidewalk out side Ralph's. The beer truck being there is what is called "synchronicity". Look it up.

Everything's Archie! least that's what I was told. Here's a nice big scan for the bubblegum fans. I saw this scan for The Groovie Goolies' debut LP over at BUBBLEGUM FINK, and decided to post this...without a water mark.

If anybody wants a premo PDF scan of this, let me know.

It's a Boy's Life Pt1

I went to Half Price Books the other day looking for yet another manual on Photoshop or Illustrator. I found what I wanted, and as usual, once I've done that...I go look at fun stuff. They have a section there called Vintage or Retro...something. It's where they keep the old magazines, stills (sometimes), TV Guides, etc. Anything over 20 years old is in there. I came across a pile of Boy's Life and Jack and Jill Magazines from the mid 60's. They had some great articles and ads in them. Premo stuff, really. I plan to share these pages with you guys in the next few installments and I plan to make them as large as possible (for Blogger) so you can print them out.
First up is an article from Jack and Jill (1968) for the "new" show from Hanna Barbera, The New Adventures of Huck Finn!

Happy Blogday!

As of April 26, this blog was a year old! Doesn't seem that long ago really.
To celebrate, I'm posting a mix tape that I did around 1990. At that time, my nostalgia bug was running at maximum speed and I was having a hankerin' for the good 'ol days. This 90 minute (!) file has a piece of just about everything audibly that reminds me of growing up in Dallas in the 60's and 70's done in montage and music mix style. This was cut together on a simple cassette deck using video resources or actual LPs or 45s. (There were no free internet downloads at the time.) The sounds are a compressed audio injection of my childhood.

Super Blog

I've got some other crap up for sale on Ebay, and one item is an issue of Super Mag from 1982. Super Mag was kin'a like Bananas or Dynamite!
I'm not sure where I got it, but it's a pretty cool issue...if you're into the 80's video craze.
Here's a couple of pics not seen in the auction...(click for bigger images)
"No Nukes"?...yea, good luck with that.
