Here at PhoneyFresh I share my weirdo interests, including (but not limited to): Garage sale and dumpster treasures, vintage magazine innards, glorious VHS trash, forgotten LP covers, self help schlock, vexing vixens, my kitschy kollekshuns and oh, so much more. Ninety-nine percent of the content you see here is from my own collection. Scanned by me, photographed by me, etc. No low-res Google search globby jpeg junk here folks! Dig!

This is one of those cheapo drug store coloring books I had so many of growing up as a kid. Somehow this one survived without being colored in, scribbled in or torn to bits.  99 cents seems a little steep to me for 1985, though. Sheesh!

As apposed to a casual freedom fighter.

 I can see you! Might wanna try a little harder....

 Gee, what could it be?

 "Perilous" missions? Looks like Rambo gets the shit missions to me!

 .....luckily it wasn't too hard

I remember getting one of these at Walgreen's when I was a little dude, probably the crappy binoculars and compass set. Hahahaaa! I do remember staring at this picture for hours and dreaming....

Haahaa! This coloring book totally reminds me of the Always Sunny In Philadelphia episode when Frank keeps trying to pass off Rambo movie plot lines as his own memories. Its pretty great! I would have loved to be an illustrator for these campy coloring books!

Hmmmm, I think I need to see this show. I'm a little behind the times(perhaps still living in the Rambo glory days?). It would be a pretty cool job illustrating these! I don't think it takes much effort, half hour tops. The crappiness is what makes it awesome. I remember having a big giant Ghost Busters 2 activity book with equal amounts of crappiness!.
