Enos Better Says...

I recently found a couple of these late 50's blank note pads courtesy of the Illinois Bell Telephone Company. They were probably given out free to their customers back in the day to keep next to the phone to: jot down numbers! or, doodle upon aimlessly while talking long distance to your boring Aunt Brenda! Fun artwork on the covers though, and signed by someone named "NIX." One also has to wonder what unsafe act possibly happened at IBTC to warrant such a thing like this to even be produced --and I put this challenging question to YOU to safely find out!

And to make this post even more fun, I dood a little doodle...

Giant Robot ジャイアントロボ Storybook / Record ('67)

One of my all time favorite manga and TV shows ever is Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot, aka Giant Robo, created in the late 60's by Mitsuteru Yokoyama. Yes, a young boy in complete control of a massive rampaging robot, while defending Earth against evil invaders is of course every kids ultimate dream (right up there with being Ultraman, for example!) Anyway, this 33 1/3 flexi disc from 1967 perfectly sums up the rock 'em sock 'em aspect of the manga (in color!) and is definitely one of the coolest records ever! Giant Robot, Kill!

I found quite a few of these kiddie storybook records while in Japan earlier this summer, and I'll be scanning and posting them occasionally here at AEET over the next few months. Stay tuned...

Birthday Jam!

A very funny, mid century Rust Craft birthday card found around town recently, featuring a cute 'n messy bunny, some tasty looking fruit spread-- and cussing! Is there a better combination for a greeting card? And happy birthday to Lil Gwen who turned 10 this week too! :)

Reno's Famous Harold's Club Brochure

The other day I found this gorgeous mid century brochure for Reno Nevada's famous, Harolds Club, highlighted by beautiful painted artwork and a neat / different sort of multiple, 2 page spread, fold-out lay-out mix of illustrations and photos. Yep, if booze, broads, and gambling was your thing, this certainly looked like the place yee ought to be-- and oooo doggy, I really would've loved to have seen that bar top made of thousands of silver dollars, and the whiskey waterfall! It wasn't just any old usual downtown money pit, Harolds also doubled as an old west museum with guns owned by Jessie James, Buffalo Bill etc., as well as covered wagons, a Fort Smith reconstruction, and other western curios on display too! Ever been there? Weave us a tale in the comments!

And if burning people at the stake was more your idea of fun, Harolds apparently had that too-- ?!

Vess Memo Book (1955)

Neat little, pocket-sized memo book for Vess soda lovers from 1955, highlighted with fun illustrations, a handy grocery store checklist, and 25 blank pages to write down your shopping needs upon. I could totally go for an ice cold grape flavor Vess soda right about now!

Sugar Bear Balls vs. The Looking Glass Lovely

A couple of tiny but terrific items found recently at an antique mall-- and likely by now some of you know of my undying love for all things Sugar Bear (the character, not so much his Super Sugar Crisp cereal) --but this was definitely a fun find and great addition to my cereal premium collection. Just maneuver both balls across his face until you get them to fall into place within his eyeholes. Umm, while this fun little ball game is harder than it looks, it's certainly not as naughty as it sounds!

But if tis be "naughty" that yee be a'cravin', then this blue 60's telescope keychain with a beautifully breasted nudie cutie treasure tucked away inside is sure to satisfy that hunger! Just put the telescope up to your eye and look towards the sun or a bright light... and... oh heck... how is it that I can make a teeny Sugar Bear game sound dirtier than a naked girl telescope?!! Jeez...

Sex-Riot at Our Schoolyard Bra-Burning

Time once again to dive head first into the whamma bamma drama dumpster of sex, sin, and other atrocities against life, love, and the pursuit of happiness, as we dredge up yet another trashfest-o-rama as only the Sterling Group Inc. could do 'em back in the day, aka Modern Love Stories (February 1969.) In one issue you have bra-burning sex riots, love-in parties, bewitchingly sexy tramps, child molesters on the loose, naughty photos, white mamas with no soul (!!!), PLUS a whole cavalcade of marriage snafus to send you screaming for the hills! I've said it before, I'll say it again-- warm up the shower, and suds up that sad bar of soap-- you will definitely need to get clean after this one!

Snakes Alive!

Whether you're slitherin' around in an acetate knit one-piece jumper, improvin' your wink, addin' some paddin' to your hips, or just kicked backed and relaxin' with 7 inches of penetratin', cordless satisfaction, we at AEET hope everyone has a satisfyingly restful Labor Day today! You know you wanted to spend a few minutes of your holiday browsing over some sin-sational Frederick's of Hollywood product ads from the 70's anyway, now didn't you? Scanned high rez from the back pages of my Modern Love Stories magazine collection, we'll take a sleezier look at some trashed-out articles from 'em later this week as well.

Sightseeing in and Around Los Angeles (1950)

A cute map full of lovely Bob Moore cartoon art makes up the centerfold of the September 14th - 21st, 1950 issue of KEY Publication, a small, yet very helpful digest sized magazine guide (published every Thursday) that's filled to the brim with arts, entertainment, food, tourism, etc, --a general what's happening around Los Angeles, CA. Love that key mermaid, and the Frontier Town cowboy 'n his hoss. Anyone up for some yodelin' in the Santa Monica Mountains?
