Vintage Photo Album: Levitating Body Edition

I love old photos that are all messed up with cracks, spots, foxing, and holes. Sometimes I’ll scan a photo and clean up some of the flaws, and then I’ll think to myself: It doesn’t look as good. I love the duck in this photo, and the magician’s assistant. Auction Here (Ends 2/27)

I Like Them

I really like these t-shirt designs at Threadless.

Run!

This last picture has nothing to do with Threadless. It’s something I found for you to add to your collection of mysterious vintage photographs. eBay auction WAS here. It’s over now.

Pinup of the Week: Speed Mystery September 1943

Speed Mystery September 1943 03
How may ways do I love this cover? Let me count them. I love how the fortune teller has cheeks like someone who has had one too many face lifts. I love that our heroine is wearing prim gloves. I love the unibrow on the thug. I love the Phrenology diagram on the table. I love the mirror in the background. And there, in the back, with its back arched, is the best black cat ever. Bad luck! Bad luck.
(I also love how this cover makes me think of Brian Eno’s Fat Lady of Limbourg. “But her sense of taste is such that she’ll distinguish with her tongue: The subtleties a spectrograph would miss.”)

The flying monkeys let our technician out for a minute and he snuck away into the light of day. Thanks for your patience during this difficult transition.

Fhtagn Spoken Here.

... the attic, a vast raftered length lighted only by small blinking windows in the gable ends, and filled with a massed wreckage of chests, chairs, and spinning-wheels which infinite years of deposit had shrouded and festooned into monstrous and hellish shapes.
