Black Porcelain Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia x K. Olin Tribu

    This dude is horror movie freaky.  You can just picture him lurking around a boiler room, goo dripping from his brain face.  His only real manner of defense would be how scary he looks though, cause the second you smack him upside his squishy head the whole thing's over.  Unless he has a skull underneath his outer brain with another mini brain stowed safely away inside.  I just blew my own mind.  

   Whatever anatomical anomalies this guy may be hiding, the Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia is a fantastic design.  And K. Olin Tribu have elevated it to a true work of art by casting it in cold, matte black porcelain.  Limited to only 50 numbered pieces, it is available right now from  You can also get there by clicking the handy link at the right side of the screen.

Pink Porcelain Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia and K. Olin Tribu

    Not too long ago I read the book "The Lobotomist" about Walter Freeman, who was the man that pioneered the transorbital lobotomy.  You know, where they shove an ice pick through your eye socket and scramble up your frontal lobes.  The scary thing about it is not that he was delusional enough to think that it was a good idea, but that they were doing this nonsense only 50 years ago.  It makes you wonder what barbaric thing we do now will be looked at in the future with scornful eyes.  Like letting dudes wear skinny jeans.  

(On a side note, if you're interested in the first book, you should follow it up by reading "My Lobotomy", which was written by one of Freeman's patients who received a lobotomy at the age of 12)

    K. Olin Tribu has released another edition of Emilio Garcia's popular Skull Brains, this time in fleshy pink.  This is by far my favorite, as it looks freshly plucked and ready for your dinner table!  Think about it:  it's probably safer than eating anything that comes out of the ocean.  This porcelain sculpture is available now by visiting

"Bleu De Four" Porcelain Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia x K. Olin Tribu

    Way back in the 1980's there was this movie called Beastmaster that I loved as a kid.  Next to the Star Wars films and Clash of the Titans, this was my jam.  In that movie there were these creatures that had faces kinda like this and these giant bat wings that they would wrap around people to eat them in sort of a weird, digestive hug.  

He just wants to cuddle.

   These things really freaked me out and the Skull Brain has brought those memories of hiding beneath my bunk bed screaming into the present.  This porcelain version of Emilio Garcia's creation was made by the folks at K. Olin Tribu and is available right now.  Even though it freaks me out I do really like it because it is so simple yet striking all at the same time.  I would, however, ensure that my cabinet was securely locked ever night before going to bed lest this decide that I looked delicious.

The Outland Store 8th Anniversary Party Exclusives and Signings

    I'm continuing my anti-cute toys theme today with these two exclusives that were produce for The Outland Store's 8th Anniversary.  What's cute about a brain shaped like a skull?  Nothing.  In fact, it's pretty weird, but in the good way.  Not like the way people are weird on public transportation in rural areas.  When you live in a city, public transportation is a must and everyone uses it.  When you live out in the country, riding the bus is like attending a sideshow, or shopping at Wal-Mart.  You never know what kind of crazy things you will see or hear.  I have the same theory about people who ride bikes.  People riding bikes in the city are hipsters.  People riding bikes in the country are crack heads.  Just look next time you're out and about as my theory blossoms right before your eyes.  You're welcome.

    Back to skull brain thingys.  Emilio Garcia made 8 of these limited red ones just for this event and he will be there to sign 'em too.  Pretty nifty.  

    Jesse Hernandez x Kuso Vinyl also made this Shadow Edition Death Serpent to help Outland Celebrate their milestone.  Eighty of these angry looking bros exist and Jesse will also be there in person to sign them.  The event takes place June 16th in Amsterdam, which I hear is a fun place to go anyway.  I've never been, but I don't get out too much.
