Brisk Sexy CuriosiTea



When I first saw this can I thought the girl on it was dead.
Perhaps strangled by her long locks? Or drown by the tea?


Then I realized she's in ecstasy. Is this Orgasms in a Can?!
Sadly it isn't, but there is such a thing!

You can get it here and see it in action below:



You can get the Brisk babe on this tea tee here:

Nomvember Begins!

First, check out the jolly Jack-o-lantern my buddy Chris carved:
You can see it lit on his blog here!

I'm honored he used this design of mine:

I didn't carve one this year, but had a plethora of pumpkin products.
Peanut butter and chocolate products too. Including these peepers:

They look like eggs unwrapped, which reminded me of this Easter photo:
The Peeps are maple, caramel apple and candy corn.
I actually got them last Halloween.
Saving them till Easter was a bad idea. They were in rigor mortis.
The bunny cereal was good though.

Speaking of cereal, I got a box of Count Chocula.
Couldn't find my favorite, Franken Berry, but I found his sperm! lol.

You can get it here. There's plush cat sperm here.

"Words are wonderful toys"

That quote is from my favorite scene in From Beyond The Grave:

I played with words and produced these love poems:

Count Charles "Vlad" Leslie

Love is Immortality

My granddad Vlad didn't die in July
When as a bat he flew into the sunny sky
He just crossed over to the other side
Where the majority of our family reside
I know I'll see them again, so I won't grieve
Especially on All Hallows' Eve.

Vive La Lolligag and Moot (I changed their names)

Milk and Honey

The bee girl appropriately named Honey,
Was a queen to Milk her pet bunny
They kept bees together,
Till Death came to get her
"Take me instead!" Milk pled
"I'll be back for you and your little friends too!" Death said.

That poem is based on the song The Beekeeper by Tori Amos:


Did you know bats are pollinators like bees?
Donate to my fundraiser for them here and you can win a treat!

This post is for October's Heart-Bits with Magaly ^♥^

Musical Muses

Hey! Sorry I've been MIA.
Happy belated Alien Day!

I'm thinking about bidding on that cool custom KooKoo Debbie doll here.
It's inspired by Debbie Harry's KooKoo album cover created by H.R. Giger.
They discuss the album and their two music videos in this interview:



This strange little G(host) bird I drew was inspired by an album too:


Garbage's Strange Little Birds:

More specifically these lines from this song on it:

"Such strange little birds
Devoured by our obsession"

The Fascinating History Of Shrunken Heads


This is an article on the fascinating history of genuine shrunken heads. Other than the recent reports of ISIS shrinking human heads and then selling them online, the actual practice of headshrinking has only occurred in the northwestern region of the Amazon rain forest.

What Are Shrunken Heads Anyway?

Shrunken heads are the severed heads of humans, and are used for trophy, ritual or trade purposes. Unlike preserved heads in general, they are very rare. That is because Jivaroan tribes (groups found in Ecuador and Peru) are the only known tribe to both hunt and shrink human heads. In fact, their practice of headhunting raids and headshrinking is what they are famous for. During the raids, the tribe would kill men, cut their head off, then shrink it.

The Headhunting Practice


Here is the perfect example of real headhunting. This is an original photograph of Horatio Gordon Robley (1843-1925) and his incredibly bizarre collection. This man was not only a soldier and an artist, but also a collector of preserved heads known as Mokomokai, which were the severed heads of the Māori (the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand).

The Step-By-Step Process Of Headshrinking

1. To remove the cranium from the head, a long vertical incision on the back of the neck is made.

2. The skin and flesh are removed from the skull.

3. The eyelids and mouth are sewn shut.

4. The remaining flesh is scraped off.

5. A wooden ball is placed inside the head to help it keep human form.

6. To shrink the head and emulsify the fats and oils out of the skin, the head is boiled in water that's saturated with herbs.

7. The head is then sewed and dried with hot sand and rocks. At the same time, it is also molded.

8. The final step to the headshrinking process includes massaging the skin with charcoal ash.

The Two Types Of Shrunken Heads

There are actually two types of real shrunken heads. This includes ceremonial heads (the Shuar people from Ecuador and Peru call them tsantsas) and tourist heads (used for trading purposes).

Ceremonial Heads

Original shrunken heads are called ceremonial or tribal heads. They are war trophies.

Jivaroan tribes would shrink human heads for the following two reasons:

1. To keep a victim's soul from returning from the afterlife and avenging its own death.

2. To intimidate other tribes by showing what could happen if they attack.

For more information on how and where you can obtain a real ceremonial head legally, visit: http://odditiesbizarre.com/shrunken-heads-yesterday-today/
The article also contains links to sites with fake and real shrunken heads for sale.

Tourist Heads

The significant difference between ceremonial and tourist shrunken heads is that with the tourist heads, the victim was not actually killed for their head/ritual purposes. Back in the late 1800s and early 1900s, tribes had sold these types of shrunken heads to tourists.

Whether you see them as a unique collectible, or something that should never be sold, owning a real shrunken head has been an oddities collector's dream. Although there are some out there for sale, they are extremely hard to find. If you ever find the real deal, just make sure it is legal to purchase and own. Also, be ready to spend thousands of dollars. Despite the high price, what a great addition it would make to your cabinet of curiosities.
