|Welcome to a dump. A internet dump that's more or less a home base of many pointless interests and
purpose of someone who has spent a little too much time on the 'net. Yea, no big deal. Still, for a old
obscure pop culture fanboy like me, it's a requirement...and you're here to suffer for it.
|XANADU PRESERVATION SOCIETY
Where else are you going to find all you need to know
(but didn't have to) about the 1980 'musical fantasy of
all time, XANADU!
What started out as a accidental three issue zine run
of a Josie & The Pussycats and Dan DeCarlo has
morphed into a net home of the unofficial.

TWILIGHT WORLD (the zine version)
Nope. No stupid teenage vampires. Just a quarterly

DON-O's VEGAS DUMP
Well, I've been talking about Las Vegas here and there not
only on tis site but in some of my zines. Thus I'm getting this
old obsession out of my system and into your computer. Hurr

|UPDATES AND NEWS
(July 24, 2017)
|The easiest way to describe this zine is that it’s similar to VH1’s old I Love The 70’
s/80’s/90’s/etc., only without the smarminess amidst the cultural deconstruction and
this covers the 60’s and 70’s…..and I’m not a celebrity. This is just a collection of
notes and artwork covering the era I grew up in but too young to remember.
This first issue covers by background and why I’m rehashing it, a photo essay on
apartment signage and ‘tiki’ in my hometown of Santa Monica and art pieces of Las
Vegas. Yup, unlike those V-H1 shows, we’re getting obscure here!
This issue is digest size, 20 B&W pages and has a $3 price tag. If you want to buy
a copy, go to the new SPACE AGE ASH TRAY page for ordering information.
|There have some small updates here and there in the Dump. The biggest is adding a section to the VEGAS DUMP
site called LAS VEGAS, DAMNIT!. My old mix tape habit got on my nerve lately and I ended up making a couple of
volumes of audio related to Las Vegas. You can read the horrid details HERE. This isn't the first time I was attacked
by this tape bug as you can read about THAT HERE.
|Billy (a. k.a. IknowBilly in zine circles) has
been making great titles like Proof I Exist
and Night At The Casino for years and has
started on a new project: ZINESTERS
....and for reasons I have yet to
understand, my name and drawn mug has
just been featured in series #2 in this set.
You can preview and order this set for $3
or the full set for $20 at his

What started out as a brief opinionated feature in an early perzine has unleash a much larger
and more opinionated rants on old zine favorites of yore. Enjoy the fun before the silverfish eats
|There are now TWO NEW ISSUES of
my perzine, TWILIGHT WORLD (zine
version); actually one is new and the
other is old and repackaged from some
fragments from the first 10 issues. For
