On one of my recent video hunting jaunts to a Millville, New Jersey Goodwill, while sifting through a mess of assorted family entertainment and “Big Bucks of the Wild” videos, I happened upon an intriguing little flick entitled Comrades of Summer. The cover struck me not only because it was apparently about a Russian baseball team (?!), but it appeared...
The army of Videvores out there are well aware of the fact that mold is one the VHS tape’s mortal enemies. There’s no bigger analog bummer than unearthing a radical tape, slipping it from the case for inspection and finding the reels ravaged by abominable white mold! Damn, it’s the worst! However, it just so happens there’s now an instance where...
I almost didn’t make it to Cinema Wasteland this year. I had been planning to go for about two months, shooting messages back and forth with my good buddy Louis about how amazingly killer the weekend was going to be, especially since I only get to see him and select other friends of mine around this time of the year. I was stoked. I even got my good...

  The name’s Jacob Gustafson, and as much as I try to deny it, I’m a redneck at heart. No, I don’t chew tobacco or drive a firebird T-top. I do love me some 80’s action flicks and racing, though. But I first must say that I find no interest in NASCAR. It’s not trashy enough for me. Too much gloss. I love the real redneck races. My...
    One of our favorite things about making Lunchmeat has been watching the community of VHS fans grow and come together around the magazine and events and social media that we’ve been involved with. We love to see others standing up and expressing their love for the VHS format in whatever way they feel most comfortable. I was particularly...

Okay, Videovores.  Just when you think you’ve hit the apogee of rabidity for VHS collector culture, an eBay auction warps your reality and brings the subculture to an entirely new level. Those of you who regularly tune into our blog will remember an interview with VHS collector and preservationist Earl Kessler. Inside the interview we talked about...

There are a few sweeping categories that make up about 90% of pulp magazine ads: brand name products, smaller independent products, and then “start a new career” ads. The latter category is generally not all that interesting. Its basically the same type of thing you’ll see in a modern day ad for an online college: become an accountant, become...

So this past Christmas my younger brother, feeling the strain that the economic crisis has placed on most recently graduated art majors, decided to go for the budget approach. The budget approach in this case meant giving me something he had literally found in the garbage. Luckily for me, my brother is very attuned to my passions and interests, and...
