Like a bad penny, its back

Back in 2009 I started a blog called Periodically Anachronistic"a blog devoted to the idea of time out of mind and the great "what if" of periodicals that never were, but maybe, should have been."

For the first few months I was rather good at keeping updated weekly, and then, things starting popping up that needed attention.  So I slid Periodically Anachronistic to the back burner where its been simmering.

Well now its time to slid it back forward and bring it back to a boil.

All of the art is stolen from various sources, but writing and the layouts and the sense of humor is all mine.  Take the January 1965 issue of Kvetch, above.  Kvetch was the favorite magazine of Portnoy's mother Pixie.

So I invite you to look through the blog, comment and give me a couple reasons to keep up on it.


  1. So glad to hear it's back. MP is still favorite, understandably.

  2. Yay! My subscription has been renewed!

  3. funny, but this model? she doesn't look jewish.

  4. Will I get a free gift if I subscribe now?

    I'd like to see more issues of Strumpet as I found the article "That Ooze Coming From Your Cooz, Diseases of Love That You Should See A Barber About" most informative.

  5. Peenee: Glad you noticed. It was my love letter to you, or sorts.

    Felix: Your tribute issue is on the schedule ("the monthly guide to Hollywood") but I am looking for the perfect art.

    Norma: This coming from someone who said "funny, she doesn't look Jewish" about Zipporah to Moses.

    MJ: And while you at the Barber, ask him for a brazillian.
