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!
Wow! Look at that all-star cast! This is a relic from the Christian "End of the world" movie craze of the late 90's. There was a whole slew of these movies, with such A-list actors as Kirk Cameron, Mr. T and Corbin Bernson living in the days of the Antichrist. Busey is surprisingly tame in this flick, with exception of a couple burts of rage. Howie Mandel is a total loon though....and of course, Satan is a dude with a ponytail. Satan is always a dude with a ponytail!
More crap from the Phoney Fresh VHS archives. A touching moment with Garth, Gospel singing cowboys and dogs, Billy Ray marvels at the wonder of the "Achy Breaky", floppin boobies and power washers. Tell your Aunt Louise, tell anyone you please.
(Enjoy it while it lasts, Youtube has already disabled some of my vids!)
I was pretty excited to find this forgotten document of "dork humor" peering at me from the Salvation Army shelves the other day. Like Gallagher before him, Carrot top was a master prop comic. He's also the epitome of over the top pseudo-hippie 90's style. It's a shame that he has transformed into a nightmarish, plastic-surgery-gone-wrong, muscle bound 'roid freak. A damn shame. The book itself is full of zany pics of Carrot Top demonstrating his goofy gadgets, many of which reference insanely outdated pop culture icons. I still can't believe the original cover price on this of $15.00! Sheeesh!
I thought the Aliens were supposed to probe us?! I found this sitting by a pile of trash on the side of the street a few years back. I actually went to high school with these guys in the late 90's, but I won't name names. Somehow the photo wound up in a different town all together too. A glob of muck has shielded the identity of one of the rapists, luckily for him!
I have always been fascinated by these weird "virtual" VHS tapes thet allow you to be transported into another world or even bring things like fish tanks and fireplaces right into your living room through the modern miracle of the VCR. Though they are dreadfully boring to watch (uh I guess maybe they weren't meant to be watched for entertainment, heh), they are a cool concept that didn't really carry over to the DVD age.
Yikes, look how fat those cats are getting sitting there watching TV all day! i saw one of these tapes for dogs once that had footage of food, fire hydrants and mail men. I kick myself for not buying it!
She's thinking "Dammit, I forgot to hit play! Now I gotta get up, walk back over there...."
This pamphlet came in the Video Fireplace box. As if you probably didn't shell out enough bread for this tape, they want you to buy wood scented incense for "added dimension". I do wanna check out the Video Kaleidoscope though!
I spotted these at a local antique mall yesterday, although they were a little bit of a rip off at a buck a peice, they're damn cool. These dudes are in the same vein as the far out Rat Fink and Weird-Ohs stuff of the early 60's, but these cards are from about 1973.
Who are these dudes? I don't recall them in any of the Star Wars flicks....I wish they were in them though! There were a buttload of these albums in the late 70's trying to cash in on the craze. I guess that happened with every popular movie soundtrack really. BTW: Scanning LP cover is a total pain in the arse!
Most of this weeks purchases were Ebay goodies, I did find a couple cool things at the thrifties and a weird sale that I may share later too.
This nifty hillbilly guy is by Norcrest, but is exactly like a hillbilly made by Kreiss for their "Psycho Ceramics" line. Is it a knockoff or the original? I kinda wanna get a nicer feather for him too, but I guess a mountain man would have a grungy feather, eh?
This lazy bum is a no name "Made in Japan" dealio. I am working on a collection of bums, hobos, winos and tramps too!
This is about 6" tall. It matches my similar "Hang Loose" hand!
Oddly enough, this is the wrong finger!
I had to get this dirty hippie! My great Aunt had the same one when I was a kid. She used to get me down a box of cool 60's toys to play with every Thanksgiving. He also has a parachute, but looks cooler without it on.
This naughty minx is an A.M. radio! Unfortunately it doesn't work, but it was a steal for $13 (I just saw one go for over $100 on Ebay!) She's about a foot tall.
Her "thingies" are the radio knobs!
My folks picked me up this far out fiber optic lamp. It spins around and changes colors! Psycho-delic!
Here's a video of this baby (and my Fantasia lamp) in action!
