Flaming Lips and Edible Skulls

There are times in every relationship where you remember exactly why you love something.  Now, it does not necessarily mean you ever forgot, but there are moments of clarity that truly show and strengthen your bonds of love.

This moment of clarity rang loud and clear when I read about the Flaming Lips’ new idea of a gummy-skull-USB flash drive. Wayne Coyne recently stated that working on a whole new album was too daunting (boo!),  and so, therefore, they looked (like we all do) to Kanye West and decided that they would release MP3s every so often.  Yet, eventually they needed a way to make money and did not have a clear-cut method.  Well, leave it to the Flaming Lips to create this:  “It’s a life-sized human skull completely made out of edible gummy bear stuff. It also has a gummy brain inside of it and, inside of that, there’s a USB flash drive that has three new songs on it. It’s pretty outrageous. [courtesy of Pitchfork]”

Never has the reasons for my love been more clear…

  1. I wonder if listening to their music would be enough to soothe the intense belly ache that would surely result from eating that much gummy substance.

  2. so wait? do you have to eat through the skull and brain to get the flash drive. Cuz that would be kickass!!! I wonder what flavor its going to be?
