How is your disc collection going?

There is nothing quite as wonderful as a well designed flying piece of plastic and here at FSM HQ we have quite a collection. Easy to hang with a single nail, a frisbee will bring instant color and design flair to your empty wall. As your collection grows you will see that a grouping of multi colored circular objects mounted closely together in your office or apartment will make an instant focal point for your guests to peruse upon. While should you get a sudden unexpected spurt of energy you can pull one off the wall and practice your chest rolls. FSM issue 1,2 and 3 all have beautifully designed wham-o discs by famous designers on quality plastic. They look great on the wall or on your chest! Have a look at them on our  website.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: ASHLEY WHIPPET

Ashley first gained notoriety on August 4, 1974 when Stein, then a 19-year-old college student, smuggled him into Dodger Stadium during a nationally televised baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Cincinnati Reds. Stein jumped the fence and went onto the baseball field with Ashley, where he threw discs for the dog to catch. The crowd was in awe at Ashley's disc-catching ability, as he ran up to 35 miles per hour and leaped 9 feet in the air to snag the Frisbees.The stunt was so novel that the game was stopped and Joe Garagiola continued to announce the flying disc action on the field. Finally, after eight minutes, Stein was escorted off the field and arrested.The nationally televised exhibition of Ashley's skill did much to fuel interest in the disc dog sport. Check out our Issue three DOG DISC from Matthew Williamson.
