Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.


"In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content."

Well done, Blogger. Well done. The children are safe once again.

Just a reminder, you can find The Curios on Tumblr.


  1. What? I just discover your blog and now the entire genre of sex & nudity is banned from blogger? That's hideous. Your posting of the Popeye Tijuana Bible came up in a search -- and I never saw a T.B. that made me laugh out loud until today. I'll have to find your Tumblr account. Thanks for this blog. My regards.

    1. Hi Brian, I believe Blogger backed down on this a few days later when a huge amount of bloggers voiced their dissent. It's still not an ideal platform, though, and posting is more difficulty than it's worth, which is why I haven't been paying much attention to this blog. There's a link to my Tumblr in the last sentence of the above post. Thanks for reading.

  2. Thanks for writing. I'll follow you on Tumblr.

    You're right -- they did back down. I just copied the following from their "Blogger Help Forum":

    An update on Blogger porn content policy
    by Jess from Google 2/27/15

    Hello everyone,

    This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy. We’ve had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities. So rather than implement this change, we’ve decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn.

    Blog owners should continue to mark any blogs containing sexually explicit content as “adult” so that they can be placed behind an “adult content” warning page.

    Bloggers whose content is consistent with this and other policies do not need to make any changes to their blogs.

    Thank you for your continued feedback.

    The Blogger Team

  3. Oh -- the link to your Tumblr doesn't work, probably because it doesn't have the hyphen between ringo and stalin. Cheers.
