- I’ve written for @artefactmag about New York’s public access TV in the 70s/80s - TV channels where anyone could make their own show, almost entirely uncensored. I spoke to Alex Bennett, the producer of Al Goldstein’s notorious sex-themed magazine show Midnight Blue, who shared some never before seen photos taken on the show’s set in the 70s. I also uncovered the origin story of a man called ‘Eric in his Underwear’ which is as weird as it sounds. There’s a link in my bio so take a look.We made a magazine. It’s issue 20 of ARTEFACT, the UAL magazine you probably don’t know exists. It’s got some great stuff inside and I’m not just saying that because I’m in it; our team put together some quality journalism and it’s totally free, too.
