Search for an innocuous geographical location - seven tags down, naked limp cock.  Stay weird, Tumblr.

Hey guys. For the next ten days, I’m going to be dedicating HONY to raising money for Hurricane Sandy. We’re going to try to do this in a HONY-like way. All of the blog’s content will be dedicated to telling the stories of people affected by the storm. Sandy left behind a lot of sad stories, but also some happy ones. We’re going to try to tell them all. The good people at Tumblr have stepped in to cosponsor the fundraiser, and they are going to be promoting these stories through their channels. We will simultaneously be holding an Indiegogo campaign. I’m excited to announce that 100% of proceeds will be going to relief efforts: Indiegogo is waiving fees. Paypal is waiving fees. Tumblr is providing goodies. And I’m covering the cost of the photographs. We found a damn good charity too. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is a family-owned charity in Staten Island, located right in the heart of one of the worst hit areas. They’ve been doing amazing work the last couple weeks, and have been endorsed by many government officials. 
I want to emphasize that this is a fundraiser, and not a print sale. With that being said, I can assure you that it will be the last time prints will be made available for at least a year. Perhaps much longer than that. Let’s have some fun next week… and kick some Sandy ass!The campaign page:http://igg.me/p/270131?a=221102

HEY NEW YORKERS/JERSEY GIRLS/PEOPLE SHOPPING FOR HOLIDAY PRESENTS.  This is pretty fucking awesome.  I am a gigantic fan of HONY, and have been following it for a while.  If you were planning on buying anyone art for the holidays, perhaps you could spend $50 on a good cause and get a beautiful photograph out of it?

Maps of American ancestry 

fucking lame ass germans

why cant i have an interesting county

Look at all the Mexican heritage. I’d have to travel several hundred miles to get somewhere with a substantially different ethnic makeup haha

i think this is super interesting. like the patterns we’ve made. look at all that mexicanness! 

Did anyone notice how “white” this country would be if we excluded the Hispanic category in the second to last pictograph?

So many white people.

Surprisingly a large number of Germanic peoples in Florida.

New Jersey welcomes your Italians!

I took this picture in Frenchtown, NJ, when I was there for a business trip earlier this month.  It was posted in the parking lot of the B&B where I was staying - I got into my car and saw it and, thinking it was a joke, got out with my camera.  The fact that there are some slips torn off gives me hope for humanity.
I think it speaks for itself.

It could have been anywhere, but it’s the gate that does the tipping off.  The iron painted in lead-based whitewash, the flakes of it that drift forty years too late, scratch your palm when you drag it shut behind you.  It’s a space that time forgot, a space that makes you feel nostalgic, but not for something you ever lived.  It’s for ideas of nostalgia: Polish bakeries, sedans, New Jersey summers, brown paper bags, corn silk.
