Party for Me

Happy Birthday, beloved sock monkeys.

And with that, I'm sorry to say that the Die Wunderkammer picture blog is out of images to post. That doesn't mean this blog will be going away. No, it's just served its purpose of archiving the visual treats that I would have lost had my computer ever died. They're here now. Enjoy them. I will be updating Die Wunderkammer as I find other things that warrant posting, sure, but I imagine that such updates will be few and far between. In the interim, please read my regular blog, Back of the Cereal Box, and I will be sure to make a note of whenever I post something worthwhile here.

The Jesus Balloon

Can't remember from where or when, but I somehow would guess Sanam's various online tendencies had something to do with it. You have to admit — —it's pretty freaking awesome.

Two Sets of Eyes, Both Seeing Blurry

The Kit Cat Clock, which as I type this hangs motionless on the wall with an expression of time that's wrong all but twice a day. I took this picture and have always enjoyed it.

Because one photo of Jill isn't enough for this picture blog. Here she is, trying to wash shaving cream out of her eyes. I think Meghan took this picture and I can't remember what caused our inter-house arguments to escalate to rapidly.

Nexie the Time-Eating Monster

The last depiction of me in the Daily Nexus. I wrote my farewell column more than a year ago, and Mark Batalla chose to depict me as throwing my official Nexus decoder ring into the mouth of what I take to be the apparent mascot of the newspaper: "the time-eating monster called the Daily Nexus," as I wrote it back then.

Although I'm wearing the very t-shirt depicted in the above cartoon, I'm slightly miffed that I look like Logan Echolls here. Oh well.

If you can explain the connection between these two images, you win for the day.

The Ghost Tree of Malaysia

Does it not make you feel slightly uneasy? It should.

Don't Blink

I acquired this as the result of an email forward. Despite these origins, I enjoyed it. It's funny, if in a way people could accuse of being rooted in racism. It's not racist. It's just funny because their clothes are different from my clothes.

Large Heads

Two images representing the video games of my youth. The first is an ad depicting some of the original artwork for Kid Icarus, the game the lent me my all-purpose screen name.

And secondly, we have the Apple Kid. You know — the Apple Kid?

The Minds of Children

Three rather nice images that some nice person scanned from their old children's books. Presenting a Mexican marketplace:

The house of the future:

And your circulatory system, as explained by an Italian canary:

Creepier in Monochrome

Two slightly unsettling images I ganked from Miz Bri. Meet Medie Jones:

And her new pal Grace Bradley:

Tired / Lazy

As the title of this post might suggest, I'm currently trapped between the poles of wanting to go to bed but being struck by the notion that I haven't updating this blog in a while. The result: the hodgepodge of unlabelled, unclassified images you see below. Enjoy.
