Strange Anatomy

I’ve always been a fan of rouge taxidermy,  cryptozoology, and fake museum exhibits. I like the idea of someone creating an alternate reality which is hidden in plain sight and not always obvious as to what is real and what is fake. Sort of like in the novel “The Crying of Lot 49” by Thomas Pynchon about a secret alternative postal service operating in the shadows. In any case, I recently came across this post aggregating photos of skeletons and anatomical models of cartoon and video game characters. Some of these are amazing, I would totally love to have a Pac-Man skeleton for my office. Also check out the anatomical drawing of the baloon dog, I love the location of the brain, and the roadrunner is awesome. Here’s a couple of examples. Go visit the post for more!

  1. Then I assume you have read and enjoyed Lethem’s “Chronic City”?

      I haven’t – I read a couple of earlier books by Jonathan Lethem and got annoyed by them, so I didn’t read any others. You know, the kind of thing that you feel your really should like a book, but somehow it just doesn’t come together. But anyway, I did hear Chronic City was good, so maybe I’ll give it a try.
