Just Because: Backwards Trend...

Favorite New Way To Wear A Shirt!

Blown by Richard Rothstein


I have a love/hate relationship with balloons, I love seeing the vibrant colors fully blown and used as decorations at birthdays and other celebrations. I do however dislike blowing them up myself. Blowing isn't something that usually gives me pause, but I always have trepidation that they might pop...


Some people I have learned have more of a love/shove relationship with the inflated latex. Balloonophilia wasn't a term, or a fetish, I was familiar to until recently. New York's Richard Rothstein uses the term to describe the many images that make up the balloon theme he uses with so many of his models.


'Helium-filled balloons have always struck me as very sensual. Balloons speak to the little boy in every man, but when I brought men and balloons together, this meeting OF MALE SEXUALITY AND INNER CHILD TRANSLATED INTO SOMETHING SENSUAL, AROUSING AND SLIGHTLY UNCOMFORTABLE and confusing, a story not quite clear, provocative.'


'As it turned out, most of the models FOUND THE EXPERIENCE SEXUALLY EXCITING; ONE INSISTED THAT GREEN BALLOONS IN PARTICULAR VERY MUCH RATTLED HIS LIBIDO. WE DIDN'T PHOTOGRAPH THE MOMENT, BUT HE HAD HIS WAY WITH SEVERAL OF THE GREEN BALLOONS. IT WAS QUITE INTERESTING TO WATCH. :) I never ask my models for an erection, but in this case, they consistently happened.'


Balloons are synonymous with celebrations, parties and joy. Birthday's, New Year's Eve, and anniversary are all events that usually require the air filled decoration. As with this series, Manhattan and it's many landmarks always play an important role in Richard's work. This week, New York, and much of the North East was dealt a might blow by Sandy. Richard's images seem especially fitting today to celebrate not only the streets and skies of Manhattan, but to celebrate the spirit of the city and the people who live there.


James Brolin in The Amityville Horror


Halloween is over, but there were a couple of posts that I did for yesterday I could not fit in, so 'bare' with me for just two more!


Yeah Josh is hot but it's James Brolin, (circa 1979) that is really the DILF. I had sadly not really known much about James as an actor and really only knew the Sr. Brolin as Barbara's Husband.


One of the movies I watched over Halloween was the original Amityville Horror. I had seen the Ryan Reynolds version, but as usual, the sequel paled in comparison after watching the original. Brolin, especially in his tighty whities, has me wanting to look for more of his work.



Giving Gourd Head!


In my recent post, featuring the work of Mount Photography, I talked about how masks can not only provide disguise and protection, but also illicit previously untapped bravery.

That must explain why every year so many people stick big sticky fruits on their heads and run naked through streets and towns. Fruit, yes fruit! Although many countries classify pumpkin as a vegetable, botanically speaking, pumpkin is a fruit. A member of the squash family, and, though it is treated like a vegetable, it is technically a fruit because it grows on a vine and contains seeds.

So this Halloween, Fruit up!

'The reason I love Halloween is that unlike most holidays, Halloween is one you can make entirely your own. There are no pressures to decorate (which I do), or cook, (which I don't) there are no family meals or visits from the cousin you choose to avoid most of the rest of the year. There are no gifts to buy and there are not battles over whether the religious connection should or should not be in the play and you eat things you mostly try to avoid the rest of the year. Halloween is also the night you can dress as you would the rest of the year if only you could get away with it!'

'As a gay kid (or any kid really who struggles with who they are or family issues) holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving can be tortuous. When your apart of a happy and healthy family, these are days to celebrate and come together. When your apart of a dysfunctional family or are in pain, these are days when the hurt is intensely spotlighted. Unlike these 'special' days which can encourage massive repression, Halloween does the opposite. Expression, especially about who you are, is something sadly still not something universally welcomed, except...for many, on October 31st.'

Ahh the smell and feel of those plastic masks we wore in the 80's!

'I think the reason I love Halloween is simple. It may also be a reason you do and don't even know it (I would be curious to know). When growing up knowing your different, family holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving can be stressful. When in the closet it means questions from dear Aunt Ruth about girlfriends, when Out of the closet it means whispers from cousin Miranda and scowls from Uncle Phil. Halloween is not a family holiday. When I was a kid, after a certain age it was about leaving mom and dad at home to give out treats and running out of the house to meet your friends. As an adult it is still about gathering with people you want to be with instead of the stress of having to be with family who you may or may not get a long with. Families (and I love mine btw, most of them anyway) come with pressure. Halloween is pressure free, it is simply meant to be fun. At it core, it is oddly about being exactly who the boy once pretended to be, but is not. Gay or straight, anyone who stresses over what 'family' holidays bring up can celebrate this day as it is for you, not them. I hope one day to incorporate this same feeling into my Christmas's as well, but until I become totally healthy, trick or treat!'

Fright Night by Prairie Visions Photography!


I have shared before that the work of Nebraska's Prairie Visions Photography both an early and ongoing source of inspiration for me even before FH began. It was no mystery where to look when looking for a 'pic of the day' for Halloween. Prairie Visions combines all my favorite elements of the day, the fun and the fright, and of course, puts the sex in the season.
