Ah, sweet death. The mysterious, the hauntingly, and the ghastly. There is a certain repulsion and allure when it comes to death. Sometimes it spikes fear, sometimes it conjures curiosity. Yet, one thing is for certain.

There is no way to avoid death. It is the polarity of life, and thus a simple fact we all must face.

What's on the other side? Who's to say and who's to know. Yet one day, we will.

Vulture Culture is a subculture where people are fascinated, collect, and indulge in the commodities of death. These commodities can be skulls, skeletons, taxidermy, and other artifacts of corpses.

Instead of fearing death, The beauty of Vulture Culture Is finding fascinating with the aftermath. The decay, the rancid rotting, and the decomposition all have its certain charm. Well, a charm if you're not afraid of it.

I have a special interest in bones, particularly skulls. I have three I've acquired from various places like art galleries, expos, and yard sales. Whenever I go hiking and exploring, I always keep an eye out for skeletons and skulls. It's one of my hobbies, and it's an acquired taste.

All it took was one painted skull from an art gallery and I was hooked. I don't buy skulls often but I love finding them. I have yet to retrieve one from the wild myself, although I have made that a goal of mine.

How does one get involved with Vulture Culture?

It's different for everyone, but admiring and respecting death is one way to get involved. Remember, it's vital to respect death. Especially if you engage in these practices.

When you acquired the remains of any creature, remember to treat them with respect and kindness. The spirit that may be attached to them will appreciate it. If you can maintain a healthy and beneficial relationship with the spirit of the creatures, you'll have a swell time in Vulture Culture.

Vulture Culture is a splendid hobby and lifestyle. It's not for everyone but it can be rewarding.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
