Monster of the Day #555

“No, I *don’t* want to hear about how tough your day was. OK, I’m a jerk. Don’t give me that look; I’m dealing with something over here.”

    did I get moderated for adding a link? I promise it was not spam ;)

  • Ericb

    It’s automatic. I think he said once that allowing links makes it easier for hackers and/or spam to invade the site.

    Well, we’ve got:
    Afghan Passion Killer
    Cannibal From Maine
    Death Crawled Up My Body (guessing the cover painting)
    History’s Strangest Gamble

    Wow! Not sure which I’d read first!!!

  • Ericb

    The Afgan Passion Killer and the Cannibal from Maine might make for an interesting blind date.

  • bgbear_rogerh

    that is what I figured.

    I was wondering (and linking to) if the “Cannibal in Maine” was related to the 18th century story of Boone Island where a stranded crew ate one of their dead crew mates.

    Guess they were not fishermen.

    I did win a batch of old ‘men’s adventure’ type magazines off eBay a while ago. I should take a look at those now that I have them, I guess.

  • Flangepart

    That cover looks like something from an early Roger Corman flick. Not that that’s bad…

  • Gamera977

    Not fishermen? Well, unless they were Deep Ones…

    Thanks Roger, I did a web-search and came up with the tale of the ‘Nottingham Gallery’. Hell of a story. Wonder if Captain John Dean was related to Jimmy Dean the Sausage King?

  • There’s a really neat 50’s B adventure movie here… One starring Rory Calhun and Anita Ekberg!

  • bgbear_rogerh

    hah. “It takes all kinds of critters to make Cap’n Dean’s fritters”

  • The adventure mags I’ve flipped through usually had a pinup photospread tossed in there somewhere. If your mags are like that, and if you scan the images for me, I’ll post them on my new blog (“A Slice of Cheesecake”). You’d get credit for providing the images.

    Those ropes don’t look very tight ; you’d think the guy, at least, would be motivated to try and get loose. Hmmm, I wonder why the scorpions are ignoring the woman ?

  • Flangepart

    She has shaved pits. Maybe they like male body funk?

  • LT_Harper

    Wow, it’s the rejected album cover for The Scorpion’s LOVE AT FIRST STING!

  • This was a serious idea, by the way.
