The Risqué Covers of High Heel Magazine!


High Heel Magazine was a pin-up pulp that run from 1937 to 1939.  Though it only ran for a short amount of time, the risque covers have made the magazine popular with collectors of both pin-ups and pulp art.  The covers almost always featured a woman who was often either showin off some leg or getting hit by a very high wind, stockings, and not surprisingly high heels.

Music Video of the Day: Omen by The Prodigy (2009, dir by Peter Dugdale)


I’m still mourning Keith Flint.

Apparently, there’s a lot of people online who are convinced that the girl playing the glockenspiel grew up to be Greta Thunberg.  Just the fact that Greta was 6 years old at the time that this video was released should put that rumor to rest.  (In the defense of many, the rumor did start and was frequently shared as a joke.  But you know how the Internet is.)  Personally, I think she looks more like Wednesday Addams or maybe the little girl from The Ring.

Enjoy!
