Hello and welcome to the latest version of my blog. It was formerly hosted over at Opera Blogs but with the decision to close those down I decided to move the blog over to Blogger.
As you can see I've changed the name of the blog from The Serial Vigilante Blog to Brad's pulpy blog. Recently, I've felt that the scope of the Serial Vigilante Blog was somewhat too limited focusing as it was on the characters who appeared in the paperback racks of the 70s and 80s. I'd been reading and thinking about those characters for nearly a decade and was starting to feel a little burnt out. I found that my interests and tastes had expanded somewhat beyond that framework.
Serial Vigilantes will always be part of this blog but I want to expand beyond that especially with my involvement in the New Pulp Movement. I was always able to justify that there was some tangential connection when I posted about New Pulp, Classic Pulp,or even Pulp Precursors (the amount of justification I felt the need to make for Don Pendleton's introduction to a Sherlock Holmes story). With the change to Brad's Pulpy Blog if I want to post about something pulpy I can. Something I may not have posted about on the old blog such as Katy Perry's jungle girl as seen in the videoclip for Roar is fair game here.
Hopefully for you the reader this means a more interesting blogging experience with a greater variety of material and more frequent blogging from me.
What becomes of the material on the old opera blogs? Well I've tried to import them across but for whatever reason it hasn't worked so I'll be grabbing some of the posts off there and reposting here. Some will be posted as is (the two interviews being the first to come to mind) others may be rewritten and new photos added but I'll make it obvious what is being reposted and what is new.
