The rabbit hole of skulls.

September 30, 2011 \am\30 10:19 am

Well, we’ve officially jumped down the rabbit hole of skulls. How could we not, with advertisements like this:

The adventure began when we read this article about how the Flaming Lips are continuing their quest to release music in ways only thought possible while stoned. Turns out the band is issuing a 24-hour song encased in a human skull.

When asked where a rock band not named Alice Cooper acquires skulls for such a project, the answer was obvious, Oklahoma City’s own, Skulls Unlimited.

A trip to Skulls Unlimited’s website was a time-waster unlike no other. We never went to one of those carnivals with a tent full of curiosities, but this is likely what it felt like. One little room after another of head-scratchingly weird joy.

  • As noted, yes, they BUY SKULLS.
  • Looking for a whole skeleton? Bingo! 
  • As we all know, skull work makes a mess in the kitchen, which is why they offer SKULL CLEANING!
  • The holidays are approaching. Thankfully, Skulls Unlimited rocks the gift certificates.
  • Oddly, their mission statement takes a strong stance against poaching animals for skulls. Yet, says nothing about where it obtains human heads.
  • They even have a discount bin. (As well as a section called Economy Skeletons)

    I love synchronicity.

    This morning on the way in to work I was listening to Alice Cooper. And here is a notification about an article mentioning him. Also, I’m thinking about being a floating skull for Halloween!

    As far as the Flaming Lips goes, I really detest them. I keep giving them chances- after all, they are one of the most creative bands out there, and they keep doing really cool stuff (four-boom-box-album, “Dark Side” with Henry Rollins, weird guitar hero guitars, etc.) but it all just ends up whiny and annoying. Go figure. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

      Me, on the other hand, I can’t get enough Flaming Lips.

      At least we can agree skull stores kick ass. (Patrick and Jess shake hands, hoist a trophy above their heads)
