Shame, it sounds interesting but Blogger has killed the site.

That's great stuff. I'm surprised this hasn't been posted already. How did we survive all this time without it?

This is what the internet is for. This is what Metafilter is for. Nice find.

Weasels ripped his flesh. They ripped it.

Because weasels are just stone cold assholes like that. It wasn't that they were hungry; they were just being mean.

Fucking weasels.

The center magazine in the page title/header - Men's Book - advertises an article "Why Homosexuals Refuse To Be Cured". I'd like to read that for the lulz.

Isn't there a meme about "angry weasels in your pants" when talking about cascading failures? (or about angry weasels?)

If you've ever been bewildered by The Coen Brothers' "The Man Who Wasn't There," keep in mind that at the end, it's made clear that the story is Ed Crane's telling as being written for one of these magazines.

They certainly look like a lulzy goldmine - I expect a band called Sin-Happy Vacationists (with their album Sin-Happy Vacationists Are Overrunning Cape Cod to be lauded by Pitchfork forthwith. Perhaps they already have been.

This is terrific stuff. I love how the curator of this blog explores all the interconnections between men's mags and pulp and noir and mass culture -- including the physique angle, which isn't ridiculed or mocked but given its due. It's not just lulzy, though it's definitely that. It's a key for understanding the popular culture of that period.

yes.
To me at least, these pulps really put the Sean Connery James Bond movies in their context.

I still prefer Frank Zappa's 1970 blog inspired by the same cover: Weasels Ripped My Flesh.

Don't talk shit about weasels (or any other members of the Mustelid family for that matter.) They are fine and beautiful animals.

They know nothing of vintage magazine covers, not are they familiar with the works of Frank Zappa.

Also, they'll rip your face right off!

There's JHarris's Infinite Weasels Theorem which postulates that things can always get worse.

Infinite Weasels Theorem is another band I expect to read about on Pitchfork

Homer: "Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It's what separates us from the animals.
Except the weasel."

Is it because the sex is so awesome?
