Some geezer must have kicked it because there’s a whole slew of vintage Playboy magazines for sale at Junk in Brooklyn. Now, why would Da General be interested in Playboy? For the articles? No- that’s what my Dad would say! It’s because these treasured time capsules are tops for the period hair and makeup looks I adore. I chose to buy this July 1985 issue because it has the legendary black and white pictorial of Grace Jones and Dolph Lundgren shot by Helmut Newton. SCORE! I passed up a Donna Mills and a Suzanne Somers for this baby.
Which brings me to why this cover is featured today- VOTE people. If the politicians themselves can’t get you motivated, then perhaps some half-naked hottie from the 80’s can do it!
