    I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not. They are strangers in their birthplace, and the leafy lanes they have known from childhood or the populous streets in which they have played, remain but a place of passage. They may spend their whole lives aliens among their kindred and remain aloof among the only scenes they have ever known. Perhaps it is this sense of strangeness that sends men far and wide in the search for something permanent, to which they may attach themselves. Perhaps some deep-rooted atavism urges the wanderer back to lands which his ancestors left in the dim beginnings of history. Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he mysteriously feels that he belongs. Here is the home he sought, and he will settle amid scenes that he has never seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were familiar to him from his birth. Here at last he finds rest.

As we grow to 2000 Facebook followers (and 2 million hits) I thought to restate the purpose and scope of Vintage Sleaze with the new year.   I wrote the following when starting the site.  Thanks all!    Share with friends!Vintage Sleaze the daily blog  discovers forgotten artists of the past who worked in the somewhat dicey but hilarious early smut market.   Colorful, funny and often touching, writer, collector  (and Grammy™ nominee) Jim Linderman writes the text using the vintage cartoon gag, limp-core smut and risque novelty  collection of Victor Minx as a starting point for examinations into the  sexy and sexist days of girlie magazines, gag digests, back page scams  and sideshow midnight rambles. Early strippers, models, illustrators,  artists, photographers, mob-connected publishers hire amphetamine driven  writers (many posing under pseudonyms) and all mingle together in an amazing  orgy of the funny and often fetishistic follies of the fifties.  Linderman is able to balance the line between the profane and the  profound easily, as the backyard erotica of the time was tame compared  to today. Tease and trash your ancestors refused to admit existed (but  bought in huge piles anyway.) From Tijuana Bibles and inept snapshot salesmen to party  toys and risque postcards, the site shows it all with delicate and  affectionate respect and humor. A entire generation of artistic smut was  rightly eliminated by the women’s movement but there was a glimmer of  merit in the dark corners. Linderman aims to find it and makes no  apologies, and in fact many of the followers of his site are women. Like  a reporter, he digs it up and shares without judging. He frequently  receives mail from relatives of those he profiles and most seem happy to  have had the work of their ancestors found again and appreciated. Vintage Sleaze runs daily until he runs out!There  is a Saturday night, Sunday morning logic to Linderman’s madness…his  first project was the Grammy™ nominated Take Me to the Water: Immersion  Baptism in Vintage Music and Photography, a collection of antique  photographs and gospel recordings of the religious ceremony (with Dust  to Digital and the original photographs donated to a major museum) and  Camera Club Girls which published over 100 never before seen  hand-painted photographs of Bettie Page and her friends taken by  previously unknown New York amateur photographer Rudolph Rossi. With a  talent for finding the obscure and bringing it back, Vintage Sleaze  shows the possibility of the blog as an art form while bringing  attention to an entire generation of lost and neglected artists who  worked in the underbelly of culture.
