Mid-Century Must-Haves April 29, 2016

The good Catholic boys of Corpus Christi College-Academy in 1950 listed their prize possessions for their yearbook senior portraits. You will find nothing technology-related. It was a simpler time. Take John Carew, for example:


He cherished his bag of marbles and yo-yo. And if he reached his ambition, just think how many more marbles he could buy!

Some boys prized their own good looks, like Mr. Anderson.


Honestly, would you have even known it was red?

And while no graduating 2016 senior would put a portable radio at the top of his list, some things never change. Men love cars.


Here’s hoping Rob Klepac is still burning gas 66 years later.

The Blog of Funny Names

Today’s beholder of a funny name is testerosterone-filled trabadour Manly Wade Wellman. Technically, a troubadour is a composer or poet, while Wellman was an author of sci-fi and fantasy, but writing is writing, no?

Before we dig into the person that was Wellman, I’d like us to reflect on how his name contains both Manly and Man. And if, purely hypothetically, one were to drink three pints of Blue Moon and glance at his name, it might appear to say Manly Well-Made Man. His image does not betray his name.

As they say on Chat Stew, “So meaty!”

Wellman passed away 30 years ago this month, but during his nearly 83 years, his science fiction and fantasy stories appeared in such pulps as Astounding Stories, Startling StoriesUnknown and Strange StoriesHe was a contributor to the legendary Weird Tales, which published his fantasy and horror stories…
