Miskatonic Mondays - Children of Lovecraft

Lights out, everybody.

On Miskatonic Mondays we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror it spawned.


When Lovecraft and Mike Mignola come together… well, that’s just about all the horror fandoms in one place. It’s actually Lovecraft’s birthday this month, having just passed (August 20th) and seems only appropriate to announce more Lovecraft news, particularly since it’s the 125th anniversary of his…

At Pilsner's Picks, We Don't Poach Anything But Eggs!

With all the controversy that's going on right now over hunting, I have to admit that I did a LOT of hunting in my callow youth— hunting for rare 78's, that is, in the darkest and most forbidding thrift shops of New York City and northern New Jersey!

I took many trophies, which are now presented to the curious as Pilsner's Picks; here's the August edition.

Pilsner Presents Some Sonic Firecrackers— It's the July Picks!

Some fireworks that are very old can still pack a wallop! So please stand back while I light the fuse on the July edition of Pilsner's Picks. Included this month is a rare, late electrcal recording by John Philip Sousa's marching band. "The March King" began recording on Edison cylinders back in the 1890's, and most of his records were made in the very low-fi acoustical format that was the industry standard until 1925. Then, the new electrical recording method was perfected, and it…

Make your own Shadow Radio

Several years ago I ran across a Majestic Charlie McCarthy Radio at an antique store. It was a midget radio with a plastic, or more likely bakelite moulded image of Charlie. They also did models featuring the Lone Ranger and Rudolph. Today each of those radios could bring up to $500- $1,000 at auction, maybe more depending on condition.…

"The Late" Pilsner's Picks

No, don't worry, fans— the Man with the Jive is still alive! But thanks to the "sterling" customer service of AT&T's internet division, Pilsner's Picks is nearly a week late, and late for the very first time in its nearly fourteen-year history.



Since the playlist is only going to be up for three weeks rather than the usual four, I've only posted eight tunes rather than the regular twelve; there's no point in doing noise reduction and volume equalization on a full list, which…
