I've kicked off 2016 on my blog by taking a look back at what Houdini was up to 100 years ago. We are so accustomed to the story of Houdini's life as a whole that focusing on a single year can be revelatory. So what was 1916 all about for HH? Well, he took his first tour of Texas, Woodrow Wilson saw his act, his founded a film lab, built his own tomb, and struck up his friendship with Harry Kellar. He also said this:

"I'll still be entertaining the public for many years to come, but I intend to do it along lines not quite so spectacular. As an escapist extraordinary I feel that I'm about through."

Did he mean it? Click below and have a read, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Really great read. I'd never really read up on Houdini before, and definitely never gotten that personal side of him. Here's hoping to more articles like it!

Another one you might like. I did a "deep dive" on Houdini's Texas tour in 1916:
