Night Swallow

UK publication Scale Aviation Modeller International (May 2017).

Nice cover.


BOG (Big One Girls) Magazine in Japan deals with the Idol culture. Here we have issues 16 and 17, one that presents Babymetal as “This years girls” and another that features two of the Babymetal girls (Su-metal is missing), probably a school shot.

Got to love Japan.

Spectre collection

Posted: April 26, 2017 in Comics, Books, Cool stuff, General


With the Tarzan book I blogged about earlier today, I also got this one. “James Bond – Spectre, The Complete Comic Strip Collection” (Titan Books, 2015), with foreword by John Logan. It features the adventures “Thunderball”, “The Spy Who Loved Me”, “On Her Majesty´s Secret Service” and “You Only Live Twice”. Big format, hardback, 272 pages.

And the pages are not pink (sorry about that).

Flaunt it baby

This is a good cover. Brazilian publication Quem Acontece (issue) 864. Incredible outfit, outstanding model.



Well I mentioned US publication Creem in my last post and this is the July 1977 issue with Led Zeppelin´s Robert Plant on the cover. I always loved this magazine and I still have a handful in the old collection from the heyday of Deep Purple.

Best logo ever?


I like the logo of Japanese magazine Mono, it reminds me of Creem. In any case, for lovers of classic LPs this looks like a great read. This is issue 2 2016 and Babymetal´s “Metal Resistance” is included on the cover.



Available through ESP dealers between February and August 2017, the ESP E-II Arrow-7 Babymetal guitar is a hard to beat Collectors Item. Babymetal did get the cover of Japanese publication Young Guitar last year (May 2016) and Moametal and Yuimetal did perform with this guitar on the Alternative Press Awards alongside Rob Halford on July 18 2016. Talk about product placement! Cool.
