Life. Death. Violence. Sex. Drugs. Sports. Entertainment. The triumphs, tragedies, and unexplainable mysteries of this thing called life on Planet Earth. This tumblr is my small way of communicating my ideas, influences, likes, dislikes, and everything else to the world through effective visual and audio media. Some of the content on here will amaze you. Some of it will shock you. Some of it might even offend you. Whatever the response it illicits, as long as I can derive feelings from the viewer, I feel as if I have accomplished my mission. This blog is a product of a man who was shaped by the boredom of suburban life, the rebelliousness of youth culture, the ecclecticism of urban life, and the fecundity of the world in general. Thank you for visiting and please follow me if you like what you see.
This site occasionally features nudity and sexual content presented in a tasteful manner...so don't look at it at work and you must be 18+ to venture on through.
All pictures not done by me are credited to the original photographer/artist. I'm not a biter. But some folks on this piece unfortunately don't put those details out so don't blame me...it takes a long time to research who did what so I'll do it if neccessary because the one thing we need in this generation is a wealth of cultural artifactsphotos going around without any notion of where they came from.
What is the purpose of this tumblr?:
Personally, I have been infatuated with the medium for a while. I consider myself a quirky individual that’s into quirky things spanning from all ends of the spectrum. It gets me going, so to speak. When I was first introduced to tumblr, it took me a while to really grasp the potential of it. After browsing on here for a certain amount of time, I started to see the beauty in what it was, what it is, and what it essentially could be. So, I jumped on it. Not really in a bandwagon sort of sense either. I’ve had sites on the web since 2000, so it felt only natural to jump into this full-force. SOme of my posting may seem extensive, but I have a really selective eye and a bad case of Adult ADD. Whatever grabs my attention, I reblog.
I come from a very unique background and consider myself a highly educated individual on many levels. Somewhat unusual if people don’t know me that well, but those who know have respect for my abilities, and that’s what makes me happy. I grew up doing alot of stuff. Playing on computers as old as tandys to as new as macs. Skateboarding, DJing, making music, taking pictures, working on art whether it was drawing or as far as graffiti in the late 90s, Basketball, Football, riding BMX bikes. You name it I did it. As I grew up, all of these influences started to mesh together and really didn’t manage to leave my collective consciousness as I grew up. For me, it’s possibly a blessing and a curse.
I’ve tried to contextualize the tumblr phenemenon to the best of my ability, but really the world is so vast behind it that it really is difficult to explain fully. So, I just use my eyes and my experiences and everything in my mental rolodex to create something eye appealing. It’s a play on many ideas, cultures, sub-cultures, institutions, and many other things, but what I would really like to think of it as is a bank of relatively new media.
Some of the things I post may go over people’s heads, but really I don’t just post for myself, but for others who may happen to stumble upon this blog. Rather than leave things open ended, I figure I should explain what makes The Bones of Houdini exactly that.
Keep this in mind when browsing the blog.
