Armagideon Time

Archive for the ‘General’ category

Can you feel it, my groovy ghoulies? The crispness in the air and whispers of unquiet spirits that herald the start of another Halloween Countdown? This will be the eleventh year I’ve done this, so expect to see a few repeats of past musical annotations. My ability to keep track of everything I’ve posted since […]

I started this feature without having a coherent plan,just a nostalgia-tinted swirl of memories unearthed after flipping through some periodicals from the year in question. Now that the project is done, I’m still not sure what I was trying to accomplish, much less whether or not I succeeded in doing so. 1983 was the year […]

A romantic invitation

July 25th, 2016

I’m still getting caught up on things after my (unannounced) vacation, but I’d like to take a moment to draw your attention to the kickstarter campaign for a print version of the Strange Romance comics anthology. Remember when I mentioned I had a couple of projects in the pipeline? Well, this is one of them….sorta. […]

When I embarked on my deep dive of Google Books’ digital archive of Billboard, I picked 1975 as my starting date. That year offered the best intersection between my childhood nostalgia and my historical interests — enough faint memories to avoid abstraction while offering a solid vantage point for observing the ascendancy of disco, the […]

Go ahead and shoot

June 6th, 2016

Things have been rather hectic around here lately, which is why this site’s update schedule has become even more erratic than usual. Planned projects such as the wrap-up to my Terrible ’90s feature and the return of Nobody’s Favorites have been placed on the back-burner because I don’t have the time or presence of mind […]

Decade

May 3rd, 2016

Today marks the tenth anniversary of Armagideon Time. The site began its life as a music blog, though that conceit had all but fallen by the wayside when I migrated from Blogspot at the end of 2008. I have no idea what I expected would come out of this project. There was small part of […]

Winners and losers

April 26th, 2016

My plans to sustain last week’s productive streak have been temporarily derailed by Mother Nature trying to make my skull explode and my senile beagle-boxer’s transformation into a slathering hellbeast when we took her in for her annual checkup. (No one puts a muzzle on Addy, not unless they want to add “three-fingered” as an […]

When two Fours clash

March 13th, 2016

Another March 13, another milestone on the fourth-dimensional roadtrip to Entropy City. At least I got a copy of the John Severin EC Comics collection and a hardback anthology of Junji Ito stories out of it this time around. (And kind thoughts from a lot of cool folks, which counts for a lot.) If you’re […]

A no bull endeavor

December 7th, 2015

When the Little Stuffed Bull announced he was putting his delightful site on standby due to technical issues, I offered to step up and serve as a temporary guest host. I saw it as a “two birds, one stone” opportunity to repay a good internet pal for his many kindnesses while attempting to get some […]

(from “The Falcon’s Claw” by Writer Unknown, Dan DeCarlo and Jim DeCarlo in Josie and The Pussycats #68, April 1973) Salutations, fellow creatures of the night! October has begun, with it comes Armagideon Time’s annual Halloween Countdown — thirty-one days of ghoulish grooviness to fright and delight. This marks our tenth time around the haunted […]
