High Weirdness by Mail

Unbelievable. The classic nutty cuckoo book, High Weirdness By Mail is now available on the web. It’s right here.

I actually got this book when I was young – maybe a little too young for what was in it – after reading about it in a Fender Tucker editorial on Loadstar. The book was a total treasure trove, and a trip, with just amazing fringe and not-so-fringe stuff you could get for free or cheap by mail. If memory serves, it’s what introduced me to Archie McPhee.

I have yet to really dive into the web version but the sheer number of links is promising. Check it out.

You may want to know that a successor to "High Weirdness by Mail" is up and running on the web: The High Weirdness Project. This is a wiki-based site (similar to Wikipedia) that accepts entries and additions by any and all visitors. There are already a fair amount of strange weird sites listed there...feel free to add yours!



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
