When I was a child I had a skull and skeleton fetish.
Well, Halloween was my favorite holiday.
Now my favorite holiday is Permanent Holiday.
No, I never wanted real skulls or skeletons. Yuck.
I just liked the little plastic ones with the green sparkling eyes.
And glow in the dark skeleton stickers, etc.
God knows I see enough of these things (and facial reconstructions, etc.) with all the Investigation Discovery and Tru TV shows I watch.
Here is a hugely popular and very funny site dedicated to skulduggery: Noah Scalin's Skull Thang.
Don't worry. Most of the skulls on his site are actually arts, crafts, body adornment, etc.
Very cool visuals.
And now there's a book too...
Wouldn't you know when I went to his Skull blog, the first thing I saw was a bunch of brains in Philly's creepy Mutter Museum.
I deliberately never went to the Mutter Museum.
Yeah, I knew it was there.
Watching X-Files was as far as I wanted to take that, thank you very much.
The Mutter is too real.
I didn't go to see those touring plasticized corpses, either.
I mean Yuck. Seriously. Yuck.
