Roberta. (September 13, 1973)

20150328_153319

I wonder how much praise the person who came up with this concept received.

20150328_153408

Maybe if I am ever famous I would shill for something, but only if I actually liked to product, and only if I could pose in an ad with it like this. (September 27, 1973)

Also great design, though I don’t know about the cherub. Plus OVERALLS (November 22, 1973)

20150328_160159

Radical. (December 6, 1973)

20150328_160308

Could you imagine what would happen if 70s Lou Reed and Loudon Wainwright III got together? What would they talk about?

(December 6, 1973)

20150328_160537

I should research who designed ads for Apple Records. (December 6, 1973)

20150328_160649

I feel like that is a genuine smile on Diana’s face. (December 20, 1973)

20150328_161017

This goof again. How could I not? The colors, the colors! And the curls.  (December 20, 1973)

Apparently I jumped to 1982…

20150328_162136

Belushi and Aykroyd. Can we talk about the name Aykroyd? The more I look at it and say it in my head the stranger it seems.

dickies

I’ll tell you where you went wrong – you placed overalls in the past. Overalls are the present and the Future!

20150328_163345

Indeed.

20150328_163511

Again, not praising the actual product, just the design of the ad.

20150328_163648

Zappa babies.

20150328_163910

Diane Keaton is the coolest.

20150328_164014

Worlds are colliding! Joe is such a babe.

20150328_164259

Now that’s a dynamic layout.

20150328_164706

Damn. Sanity versus insanity.

Lest you think I’ve found better ways to spend my time, this little ongoing series of my adventures pillaging dusty old periodicals continues!

Terri Garr

Teri Garr is so cool. Also I want an applause sign (February 17, 1983).

I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t like Dustin Hoffman. (February 3, 1983)

bowie shark

Bowie shark.

2015-03-14 14.17.06

Ooh bad boy Petty tearin’ up currency (February 3, 1983).

2015-03-14 14.26.27

Petty tour ad from the January 6, 1983/December 23rd, 1982 double issue.

2015-03-14 14.29.50

Sigh. Elvis Costello also in that double issue.

2015-03-14 14.43.10

Jumping back to 1972 with this Bowie cover. Dig that headline.

2015-03-14 14.40.42

Now that, is a rock star. Same issue as above, November 9, 1972.

2015-03-14 14.38.15

November 9, 1972. I had no idea Martin Mull was ever so big. I think my only reference point for him was his stint on Roseanne. Which perhaps sells his career short, meaning no short shrift to the brilliance of Roseanne. He was annoying in that role though.

2015-03-14 15.00.17

Pardon the blur; I guess Bowie makes me unsteady. The caption: “Bowie in New York: “America is the loneliest place in the world”. January 18, 1973.

2015-03-14 14.55.20

Poco ad, January 4, 1973. Funny how once you discover something, it pops up in your life again.

2015-03-14 15.01.08

Certainly not just a children’s book author. January 18, 1973.

2015-03-14 15.14.38

Look at Zappa in that sweater vest. March 15, 1973.

2015-03-14 15.17.47

Poor Ronnie. March 15, 1973.

2015-03-14 15.20.50

I love illustrated ads. So rare these days. Also March 15, 1973.

2015-03-14 15.30.56

Words to live by. April 26, 1973.

2015-03-14 15.34.03

Trippy ol’ Todd, May 10, 1973.

2015-03-14 15.44.37

Kim Fowley, May 10, 1973.

And now, back to the 80s.

2015-03-14 16.19.46

How have I not seen this movie? August 19, 1982.

2015-03-14 16.20.05

Be still me heart. Joe Strummer. Same Tron issue.

2015-03-14 16.21.27

I’ve got to keep up the Hall and Oates quota around here. November 11, 1982.

2015-03-14 16.22.28

2015-03-14 16.24.46

Just a coupla cover boys. E.T. July 22, and Sly July 8, 1982.

2015-03-14 16.25.30

Laurie Anderson in that July 8th issue too.

2015-03-14 16.27.59

I couldn’t agree more.

2015-03-14 16.28.44

Ach. I love these two. June 24, 1982.

2015-03-14 16.30.20

I would’ve hit that. June 10, 1982. (Do people still use that phrase?)

2015-03-14 16.31.47

Let’s end this post on a high note. As high as the hemline of Brokaw’s shorty shorts:
