Saucer Smear Vol 58 No 10

 
8 pages, magazine size, edited by James W. Moseley, PO Box 1709, Key West FL 33041, USA + saucer_smear [at] yahoo.com 
It was thanks to Ray X and his zine X-Rayer #82 that I read about James Moseley's long-running Saucer Smear. Long-running? You betcha. Saucer Smear has been in print since at least 1981.
SS is old school, appears to be typed up using an old manual typewriter, real nice layout, easy to read, and illustrations and photos throughout. A quote in this issue seems to come pretty close to capturing Saucer Smear's angle on UFOlogy: "One final thought: The True Skeptic (= Debunker) is no more enlightened than the True Believer. Whatever is really going on out there, re UFOs, the paranormal, etc. neither extreme is likely to learn anything. Pity!"

Envelope By Truman Bentley Jr. - Nov 29 2011

   
Truman's still hanging out with Spongebob at Bikini Bottom and now they have a band called The Turbos!
Inside, another CD depicting one more sad moment in the life of the mysterious H2O Waterhead Juni.
On the disc, no sign of Truman's band, rather a fraction of the 'hillbilly' home movies from the last disc, then the 1987 movie Angel Heart featuring Mickey Rourke, Robert De Niro and Lisa Bonet. Following that is the movie 1977 Shock Waves featuring Peter Cushing, Brooke Adams and John Carradine. Maybe Truman's band is next? Nope. Next, a video about teaching sex education to "trainables" (a euphemism for intellectually handicapped folk). That's followed by some '70s grindhouse movie previews: Horror High, Revenge of the Cheerleaders, The Blood Spattered Bride, and a few more. And that's a wrap. No Turbos. I think that band only exists in Truman's imagination!
