Re: LOOSER THAN LOOSE PUBLISHING TO CLOSE

Devastating news; I've actually been putting together an order to make my own private Slapsticon this year. I've always been happy with Dave's efforts: the packaging, the period music, and the small-gauge prints that aren't available anywhere else. The Lloyd Hamilton and Hal Roach collections alone ...

Re: De Muzikale Buren

The link in the post above illustrates what is wrong with that site: A thorough argument is made, with evidence given to support the solidity of the claim, and the thread gets locked off just as it's getting good. Why doesn't that happen when people color in photos of Clara Bow and glue on Lon Chane...
