Psychotronic Eats The New Yorker's Brain

It's getting strange out there. The latest issue of The New Yorker features "A Psychotronic Childhood," being a pocket autobiography by Colson Whitehead, one focusing on the author's lifelong affection for fleapit cinema. The Psychotronic Encyclopedia Of Film and its author, Michael Weldon, receive significant mention throughout. A thoughtful, non-ironic take on Ray Dennis Steckler's films and others of comparably Incredibly Strange persuasion is given significant column inches within the current issue of this bastion of snootiness. Go figure.
