Mini Skirt Monday on Flashbak


Miniskirt Monday is coming to Flashbak.

When you think about it, it's only right that Miniskirt Monday should wind up on a British site - the originators of the mini.  I'm interested to see how these mini-centric posts will do on the new site.

Please note that many of the new Miniskirt Monday pics will look very familiar to longtime Retrospace readers. Have no fear.  While I plan to summon forth pictures from old MM posts, there will be plenty of new material to share in the future.  Also check out other articles by yours truly (Yeoman Lowbrow) See you there!

Bad Solo Albums and The Music Behind Horrible Album Art



A couple posts of mine are up on the new Flashbak site. Check them out.



Bad Album Covers Exposed! The Music Behind the Worst Vinyl Art Of All Time

I'll be doing about two posts a day over at Flashbak, so you'll actually get posts by your old friend Gilligan more regularly than at Retrospace.  We'll often cover similar topics (some stories may look familiar), but mostly, it will be brand spanking new retro goodness.  I hope you'll pay it a visit.  See you there.

Flashbak Has Arrived!


It's time to celebrate, people.  There's a new site up called Flashbak which will feature regular offerings by yours truly.  Yes, Retrospace has fallen onto hard times (I'll spare you from once again going into the reasons why); but, it's rising like a phoenix from the ashes on Flashbak.... we even plan on re-instituting the beloved Miniskirt Monday!

As you know, I've been contributing to Anorak, a UK site which is not specifically retrocentric.  The new spinoff site will feature 100 percent retro goodness.  If you liked Retrospace, I encourage you to take a look and drop in from time to time.  I'd love to hear from you on the other side!

Full Reads #4: Wild Women on the Loose!


Here's a couple fun articles from ye olde men's magazines which tell tales of wild rampaging women  The first article, "Girls with Claws" is written so sensationally that I simply had to share. Every line is a hysterical hot mess of lies and wishful thinking: "They use sex as bait but, failing to get a nibble, these demoniac damsels will fight!"

The second article, "Burglar in Hollywood" falls victim to the same fiction - that the world is populated by massive amounts of glamorous nymphomaniacs.  Never in the town you live, of course - but this article claims they're rampant in Hollywood.

Happy reading.
