Pre-internet Underground Book Distribution

Original ad here.

Gather around, children, and you shall learn of an ancient time, before the internet. A day of paper fanzines and weird information obtained only via books delivered by snailmail.

The main purveyor of such good stuff was the Loompanics catalog. Alas, they were driven out of business in 2006. The current website using their domain name is a shell and a scam by cybersquatters.

Over one hundred Loompanics books have been tagged as a Goodreads collection. You can get a small sense of what they were all about there.

William Luther Pierce and Cosmotheism

image

I'll bet nearly every WU-vie is aware of the infamous racist novel The Turner Diaries. But were you aware that author William Luther Pierce also invented his own religion to accompany his propaganda?

"Cosmotheism is a scientific-racial-spirituality based religion, a convergence of meditation, White separatist ideologies, cosmic evolutionary theory and transhumanism thought. "

Read THE COSMOTHEISM TRILOGY here.

Worst Art-house Movie Ever?



The site where I found this clip explains:

"The now-infamous 'cup and sea' sequence from director Turge Babonet's 1968 film, THE HORRIBLE HORROR -- which prompted writer Cleveland Amory (TV Guide. May 12, 1968) to comment on the state of European cinema, 'You have to be on LSD to understand it'. Babonet's Dutch-language drama was ambitiously rescored and subtitled for US distribution, but its story of tragically depressed cod fishermen held no appeal for American audiences."

However, many folks believe Turge is a hoax.

Look at this purported list of Turge's films, and tell me what you think.
