Skull Lantern

May 26, 2010 ☞ Personal inventory

My roommate and cousin Raj left this hanging from my bedroom’s doorknob one day apropos of nothing; It wasn’t even hallowe’en. Perhaps he was trying to send me a message, e.g. “die,” or “your room isn’t Metal enough.”

You can barely see it, but there is a switch on the front that causes the skull to glow. That alone was reason to keep this thing around. It’s barely a practical source of light, but I have turned this thing on countless times, if only to appreciate the wonder that is a glowing skull.

It also acts as a decent visual counterpoint to all the damn unicorns around here.
