GENTLE REMINDER: Bring Detroit's Orbit, Fun & White Noise Home!

Bring Orby's Story to Your Home!

Help celebrate Orbit's 25th in style 

15 years after Orbit was laid to rest, the time has come to tell the shocking true tale of Detroit's greatest alt-publication in Re-Entry: The Orbit Magazine Anthology from Wayne State University Press.

Your tax-deductible support will help create a lasting document to over 35 years of vital Detroit cultural history as told through OrbitFun, and White Noise magazines. This deluxe illustrated edition will not only feature reprints of popular articles but also tell the behind-the-scenes stories of how these landmark magazines covered Detroit's music film, art, food, and creative scene like no one else dared with a healthy dose of humor.

Your support of $60 gets your copy of the book, a partial charitable deduction (just in time for tax season), and the knowledge that you have done your part in helping to preserve this important cultural history.

We are also offering cool things and events including new Orbit t-shirts, original art from Jerry Vile and Niagara, a complete set of Fun magazines, tickets to a special party, and more! You can also expect a large portion of your gift will be tax deductible at any level.

"...Fun magazine and Orbit felt a lot more supportive and positive to me and also full of satire as well - which is the positive side of that sort of 'hip' culture." - Jack White 

You can give now by clicking Orby's head!

Please tell your friends, neighbors, and other fans about this campaign.
Let's celebrate Orby's 25th birthday in style in 2015!

WHITE NOISE (1978-1980) covered Detroit's punk scene in and around Bookie's Club 870 and visiting national acts such as the Ramones, DEVO, Patti Smith, the Dead Boys, and more! 
FUN (1986-1990) was America's first free humor magazine - a true Detroit innovation! Satire, music, film, art, culture, and more. Fun's humor was too good to last and too great to be forgotten! 
Bringing humor to alt-publishing, ORBIT(1990-1999) covered Detroit like no one else dared and shined a light on techno, Kid Rock, ICP, Jack White, EMINEM, and many more.
