Kooks: A Guide to the Outer Limits of Human Belief - by Donna Kossy
It's a book. It's a big, coffee-table book. This is the 1st edition, published in 1994. The subject: see the title. For instance, learn about the belief that while, yes, the earth is round, it's not convex but concave - yes, the earth is really the INSIDE of a big sphere. Or how about: The "Third Eye" is a hole in your head. Yes, trepannation - it makes you wise, like a baby. Kossy's sociological studies into the lives and beliefs of her subjects is without condescension, no matter how strange they may seem to those in the mainstream. Quite a read, it is. Maybe your belief is in there.
SCRAM 'Zine Issue #5 Summer 1996
If you're up on your Factsheet Five Zine Reading Guide, you no doubt are familiar with SCRAM. Yes, it's a guide to unpopular culture. Don't we all need a little bit of that? This back-issue takes you from
Celebration (Disney's planned community) to HATE (Peter Bagge), with various stops along the way, including one with singing rodents. And the centerfold pinup is a must-see.
"The Sensuous Woman" by "J" LP
No, it's not the book. It looks like the book, if the book were flat and 12" x 12". This adaptation of the book, read by Connie Z, is set to music. The entire thing was produced by Marty Thau and recorded at NYC's famed Electric Lady Studios over there on 8th Street. It was released in 1971, so you know it's porn-o-riffic. Once you hear the section on the etiquette guide to orgies, you will ask yourself what you ever did without this LP. Ditch your worn-out disco 12" records and sample THIS, dollface.
**Because eBay wants to protect you from yourself, you need to provide a blood sample to view it, as it is in the "Mature Audiences" section.
