Just a quick plug for my other blog: Brian Bellmont and I update GenXtinct.comdaily. It's also a pop-culture blog, this one aimed specifically at the kind of retro toys, tastes and trends that will fill our book.
Recent topics: Barbie dolls of Joan Jett and Blondie. Gifts based on 1980s toys and candy. "The Osmonds" in cartoon form. TAB COLA! Join us there from time to time, and on Twitter and Facebook, won't you?
I'm an entertainment editor at MSNBC.com, and have maintained Pop Culture Junk Mail since August, 1999. The New York Times called the site "one of the best places to explore pop culture online," and Entertainment Weekly included it on their Top 100 Web Sites list. If you like weird food, strange products, and 1970s and 1980s nostalgia, PCJM is your home away from home.
