*** 500.000 Visitors ***

Players_02

Holy Shit! Our counter rolled over to the magical 500.000 vistors without even noticing it. We're still going since march 2004 (dang, we're getting old), but we couldn't have done it without you! So here's a big thx from and to all the Players and Playerettes out there... THANKS!

This calls for a classic blog celebration... it's pin-up time!

Pin-ups by Mr. Atomico

It has been a while since we've posted a pin-up artist, but the illustrations of Cero Atomico sure makes up for that.

"
Headed by Michelle Carr, The Velvet Hammer Burlesque is the world famous burlesque troupe based in Los Angeles that has started the era of Neo-Burlesque, reviving the genre of the American tradition, elevating the classical performance. The book presents photographs of the crew’s dancers and performers – a voluptuous ensemble of women – from their savvy, witty on-stage acts as well as a glimpse behind the curtain. The ornately adorned women have brought the “tease” back into striptease with their entertaining bump ‘n’ grind artistry, serving up plenty of tassels, lace, tattoos, booze and rock ‘n’ roll on every page."

It's been a while since I've seen them, but you gotta give it to these lads 'n' ladies... they do bring something special on stage.
And admit it, "... serving up plenty of tassles, lace, tattoos, booze and rock 'n' roll" doesn't sound too bad, does it?

Glamour from the ground up

You gotta love Taschen! Everybody should have at least one book in his collection.

Ed Fox is well known for his bare metal crew cab, but his ode to the female foot is probably even more famous.
Check out his first released celebration to the female foot by clicking the pictures (you naughty devils!).

Also, check the history behind Taschen, from small comics shop in 1980 to a full-option publisher company.

For your eyes only.

DicE 17

They did it again! After the mad Crewcab feature in issue 4, the greasers from DicE Magazine featured another sweet, ground scraping VW pick-up in their mainly bopper, hot rod, beer 'n' tattoo inspired magazine.

Poupi Whoopy

Something be Belgians don 't have? Nah, now we have it all, even our own Burlesque Pin-Up Booklet!

Poupi Whoopy


I love the artwork on this one. It has a crossing between a Mexican Wrestler, Naughty Pin-ups, Russian Dolls and a little drunken female sailor.

Thee Librarian

Thee Librarian never lets us down... this time she posted some more interesting links on Razor Reel - a look into the weird and wonderfull world of exploitation movies and television shows and The Notorious Betty Page and our own Ghentoise Film-festival.

Also... check out her new ride. Now she can drive the streets of Ghent in style. It's a roller, but still too high from the ground... well, at least the nose.

Cake, Cats & Curiosity

Yep, we missed Spa this year. We've seen enough rain and had to clean up the oil-tank (the oil looked like somekind of red mayonaise) this weekend due to the everlasting rain.
It all started on thursday, but, miraclus, we didn't mind the rain then...

 

It was nice visiting the Parkkaffee with the Devilles Harem Girls showing of the La Fille d'O collection.
