Thousands Of Words
Your PopCulteer is a bit swamped this week. I have two magazine articles in the works, another pressing deadline, and I’m preparing for an out of town trip.
This means that you lucky readers are going to get a special treat this week. I have searched my hard drives for cool images that I probably haven’t posted here in PopCult yet! That’s vintage flyer art for the band, Three Bodies, from 1990, on the right. Most of the images are more recent than that.
On top of that, each image will have a clever, charming and/or educational caption. Since every picture is worth a thousand words, that makes this one of the longest columns I’ve ever written. At least that’s my story.
A cool photo accidentally left out of last week's PopCulteer: HallowEast's Daddy, Mark Wolfe, at the ArtMares edition of Dr. Sketchy with Penny Maple and Pepper Fandango in the background.
Disturbing The Peace at The Monster Bash at Kanawha Players Theater last month.
The Hack3rCon banner at Windows On The River during CharCon.
Previously unpublished version of my drawing of Building 82 imploding.
Cool vinatge GI Joes in a display case at Where The Toys Are in Canonsburg, PA.
Cool people at an ArtWalk from earlier this year.

The edition of Dr. Sketchy's with invisible models. (Actually they just weren't there yet.)

You should have thought of that before we left.
Kroger's no longer carries Playboy magazine because of the negative effects that naked boobs have on society.
