Woo-Hoo! My wife just won me a shirt on Ebay. What’s that you say? So what? Big deal? Well, this happens to be a vintage snap-button shirt, complete with stitched-mandolins on it. Does your shirt have stitched mandolins?

Hmmmm?

No?

Didn’t think so.

Waiting for 1980’s skinny piano tie to come back in fashion. Maybe waiting a while.

Try as they might, today’s models can’t hold a candle to the one and only Bettie Page.

The Violators from 1957, ‘nuff said.

LIVE FAST DIE YOUNG / 1958

The sin-steeped story of the “beat” generation!

Two sisters live in a dysfunctional family in a California town. The elder, “nice” Kim, was sexually abused and hates men. Rebellious teen Jill is fed-up generally and runs away, finding her niche as a B-girl and sex-kitten working her way to Vegas. Kim leaves her job and goes in search of Jill, meeting her own misadventures en route; but by this time Jill’s wanted for robbery. Will she live fast and die young?

So now that you’ve bought that brand new 60-inch 3D capable 1-inch thick LED/LCD television for your living room, what’s next? Looks like the guys at LG are going back to the future with their latest TV.

The retro-styled LG Serie 1 television doesn’t just look like an old set, it actually uses good old CRT technology. No schmancy flat screens here, just a old-fashioned 4:3 aspect ratio cathode ray tube for you to watch your reruns of I Love Lucy on.

The set features a 14-inch diagonal screen, complete with rabbit-ear antennae and chrome legs. It even has old-school knobs for changing channels and adjusting volume. However, this set has a modern digital tuner, composite video for your retro video game console, and a wireless remote so it’s not completely antique tech.

For extra fun, you can flip the television between full color, black & white and sepia tone modes:

The sets are available in the orange color shown above (model 14SR1EB) and a dark brown (model 14SR1DB). At this point the LG Serie 1 Retro Classic TV is currently only available in Korea, where it currently retails for appx. $216.00 USD.

MAD MONSTER PARTY!

This Halloween stop-animation film came out in 1967. With all of today’s technology, Hollywood still can’t come close to the magic of films like this.
