Voodoo Doll Head: Lucky Voodoo Head as Replacement or Ornament

A flower arrangement can be so bland when compared to a vase full of sticks stuck with Lucky Voodoo Doll heads. These keen and crafty heads each sport a distinct personality which can be customized or randomized. Voodoo Doll Heads work great dangling from your ceiling or as a bookcase accent piece, although its original intent was to replace the original head off a Lucky Voodoo Doll that was decapitated by a feline.

Why you need it:
Because your cat ate the original head off your Lucky Voodoo Doll, of course. Either that or you simply like to laugh.

How I made it:
The joy of Crayola’s Model Magic comes into play with my Lucky Voodoo Doll heads. Just don’t let it sit around exposed to air for more than about two seconds or it turns dry and cracky. Random beads, zippers, buttons, screws, wire shards, sequins, feathers and whatever else fits the mood and personality of the doll comes next, stuck on with the best tacky craft glue known to man.

Specs:
Approx. 1.5 to 2.5 inches round, bigger than a golf ball but smaller than a bowling ball. Indentation in the bottom for sticking on sticks. Wire hanger can be attached upon request.

Variations:

Custom orders always welcome! If you want a Voodoo Doll Head attached to a brand new Lucky Voodoo Doll, just send me the colors, gender and desired attitude and the doll is yours. Can also make bigger heads the size of holiday ornaments you can dangle around your Easter, Halloween or Christmas tree. Heads can also be customized for any occupation, style and occasion – my Lucky Voodoo Doll wedding couples are always a hit. To place a custom order or more info, e-mail ryngargulinski@hotmail.com

Terms:
Custom items shipped out within seven business days of receiving order and payment. Usually sent much quicker, but you never know when I may be inundated with a sudden order for dozens of doll heads.

Easter Peeps experiment: How long do marshmallow chicks last in Arizona summer?

Easter season would not be complete without Peeps, the sickly sweet marshmallow treats that have been rotting kids’ teeth for more than 50 years.

Although the sugary snacks have several claims to fame – such as their astounding array of colors that now include bright blue and shapes that go way beyond Easter chicks – their main claim to fame is their shelf life.

Peeps supposedly stay fresh, sweet and edible for an incredible two years. That is, of course, if you keep them wrapped in their plastic, far from greedy little fingers – and out of the Arizona sun.

We wanted to test Peeps longevity through a Tucson summer so we stuck them on a stick in a tree last March, right before Easter 2010.

You’ll be amazed and perhaps even surprised at what we found.

First off, Peeps do not melt in the Arizona sun. They instead become hard and dense, not unlike those sugar roses on wedding cakes you’re not supposed to eat but still try to every time.

Although we did not take a bite of the hardened Peeps, and placed them high enough in the tree to avoid the dogs’ gaping maws, we did poke them repeatedly with a stick. Even the thorns of a mesquite branch could not penetrate the hardened marshmallow rocks.

Despite not melting in the sun, the harmful ultraviolet rays did, however, do a number on their color. By early April, the Peeps’ bright blue was already becoming a somber cornflower color.

New 2011 calendars feature roadkill, nudie Barbie dolls – Rynski Radio – UPDATE with playlist, download

You can kick off 2011 in a, shall we say, interesting way with a couple of calenders sure to inspire plenty of conversation.

If roadkill and nudie Barbie calendars don't work, try the Sawyer Says calendar at www.cafepress.com/ryndustries

One features 12 gloriously gruesome shots of roadkill. Another shows off Barbie – probably more of Barbie than you want to see, since she appears both solo and in some intimate lesbian poses.

People eating strange objects, stealing hissing cockroach – Rynski Radio – UPDATE with playlist, download

People do the weirdest things – but don’t take it from us. Take it from the brothers who stole a hissing cockroach.
