The Cable channel ARENA (or arena, as it was then) used to be this great mix of sci fi, mystery, art house, b-movies, kitsch and schlock. Their tagline was 'the art of television' and it was my dream channel.

These cards come from the "Wonderful Australia Series" made in 1984 by Galah Greetings - C217 and C209 respectively.
Australia, where every Westinghouse freezer has an (unharmed) emu popping out and you can cuddle a roo by Ayres Rock.

It's Pinky & the Killers - 60's, Japanese, stylish pop-in-bowlers. Fab.
This single was given to me by Dougee Dimensional and I've since tracked down a few more (including 2 in Japan recently). I also found a CD collection of their hits in the RECOfan in Shinjuku. They are all great.
I ask you, how could you not love this band?

It's of a motel in New Orleans (or so the pool tells me) and I think it looks unbelievably fantastic in that 60's motel-y kind of way.
I hope to stay there one day. If I do I'll send a postcard.
