Taschen has released a titillating title called Psychedelic Sex written and compiled by Yippie co-founder and Realist publisher Paul Krassner with self-proclaimed obsessive collector, Eric Gotland. The racy retro collection is edited by Dian Hanson whose job title at Taschen appears actually to be “Sexy Book Editor.” Nice! Hanson produced a ton of men’s magazines from Juggs to Legshow between 1976 and 2001 and is also responsible for other Taschen titles like The Little Book of Big Penis and The Big Butt Book 3D, so obviously you might want to get your hands on Psychadelic Sex. The addition of Paul Krassner’s penchant for countercultural hilarity makes this kind of a must have in my humble opinion.

Pretty good so far. Has this come up before?

Buoy has signed an online distribution deal with Vyerfilms a curated subscription service which showcases independent films from around the world.

Filmmakers get 70% of the revenue, currently the highest share of all VOD services, so this is a real financial oppurtunity... that is, assuming people don't take advantage of the watch for free option. Oh well, just glad it's getting out there a little.
