Updates, updates, updates!

Every now and then I update previous posts when new information comes my way, and some of you may be interested in keeping track of such things, so here we go -- !

It looks like Ivan has discontinued his blog at -- I'll keep him in the Blog-o-Matic for a bit longer in case he starts up another one soon...

Gary worked some magic on the Tabby Anderson slide I scanned recently -- check out his work here.

Thanks to Owen for pointing out the correct photographer on the Don Fuller pic a few posts down.

In my June 15th post on Jerry Sullivan, Bob wrote in the comment section in response to my mention of DSI --

In the early/mid 1960's, in Minneapolis, MN, DSI (Directory Services Inc) published the first male nude magazine in the U.S..

Europe had put out nudist mags for years, but DSI (founded and run by Conrad Germain and Lloyd Spinar) were the first in the U.S. to do so. They were arrested, fought all the court battles, and in 1965-7 won (acquitted on all 29 counts brought by the U.S. government) the decision making male nudity legal in the U.S..

I own the later DSI negatives and literature created in Los Angeles in the late 60s and early 70s, after they moved away from Minn.

These guys are absolute heroes for making publishing all nudity and later hardcore possible. They
don't get the credit they deserve!

My thanks to Esperanto Girl for the nice write-up she gave to v-m-p at her blog, but I would like to confirm that this writer is neither Bob Balaban or Wayland Smithers -- it's just alan!
