800x631xspringbreak5.jpg.pagespeed.ic.gQaIlNXLY2.jpg
Back in the 80’s when Riff Raff would have been the name of a New Wave band, and the Tropicana Girls still wore crocheted bikinis, photographer Keith McManus took his camera and followed the tequila driven youth of the USA to Daytona Beach.
In his new book Rites Of Passage you’ll find he documented the chaos every year between 1982-1993, and you can check out a tonne of Keith’s 80’s Daytona images, right here, after the jump!

One can only wish to achieve a level of success where after you’ve been dead for over 25 years, your ex-girlfriend can hash up some old noodz of you, and still make a dollar!
Budding photographer Paige Powell had just moved to New York City when she started rubbing on iconic artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and took the racy photos of her now famous beau. Now, in the year 2014 you can enjoy them, right here after the NSFW jump! I assure you, they’re very artistic and tasteful.

!! OMG, Thank God It’s Christmas: Freddie Mercury’s Lost Holiday Home Videos !!

1472761_574449912635542_1673220678_n.jpg
We came across this behind-the-scenes footage of Queen filming their second last video for “I’m Going Slightly Mad” with some penguins, along with personal home video taken by Freddie Mercury the morning after Christmas, hanging out with friends in his state-of-the-art late-1980’s house aka “The Garden Lodge”.
A woman that looks like the lovechild of Leslie Hall and “Margo” from Beyond The Black Rainbow chatting with some of Freddie’s friends, and Feddie’s cat Tiffany kind of steal the show in these tapes. Check out the vintage hi-8 clips after the jump, along with Queen‘s Xmas track “Thank God It’s Christmas”!

!! OMG, An 80’s Xmas Throwback: Pee-wee Herman & Bryan Adams’ “Reggae Christmas” Video !!


We love how blindly 80’s this Christmas throwback with Pee-wee Herman and Bryan Adams is.
The clip was shot in MTV studios in NYC, back in 1984 and stars a bunch of the original MTV faces. The dread hats are a nice touch, but we still feel like a true reggae Christmas would be much smokier. Check it out above!
