Again with our fascination for anatomical fetish fashions…
This link comes from the ever-tantalizing StreetAnatomy blog, describing the work:
This beautiful collection by Jemma Marie McLean, called Skinned Alive the Anatomical Structure is inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s anatomical drawings.
Jemma founded Purdy Corsetry after being disappointed by the quality and selection of what she found in New Zealand. She knew with her wealth of experience in sewing and degree in Fashion design from Massey University that she could make the best corsets possible.
Purdy Corsetry is located in Central Wellington, New Zealand. View all her latest work via Facebook!
Hell hath no fury like a nurse scorned in this gruesome but witty horror story from Thailand. Dr. Tar is a charming but devious surgeon who has a profitable side business supplying black market dealers with fresh human organs for transplant. Dr. Tar’s staff of seven nubile nurses help him find a steady source of victims, but one of his aides, Tahwan, is shocked to find that her sister Nook is on the doctor’s list of upcoming cases, and threatens to turn him in to the police. Dr. Tar puts Tahwan under the knife to keep her quiet, and she conveniently dies during surgery. But a few days later, Dr. Tar is receiving an award for his work saving lives, the ghost of Tahwan begins stalking the halls of the hospital, seeking violent revenge against the doctor and her fellow nurses who failed to come to her rescue.
Apparently this is on one of the fine “Songs in the Key of Z” collections of outsider music, but we only heard it last week. Now you too can hear Buddy’s semi-musical retelling of a visit to an overseas surgeon to remove an unnamed birthmark. It’s in the form of a letter to his mom, but we care too, Buddy!
Much like a baby’s skull, The Art of Bleeding has a soft spot — spot in question being a fondness for of old safety educational films. Above is a prime parodic example in which catnip tidily substitutes for the bogeyman LSD. Odd fact: creator Jason Willis is actually one of the kids in the “Halloween Safety” film we remixed a couple years back. His recollections of that experience make for an interesting read.
In the interest of puppet safety, The Art of Bleeding brings you this musical recap of events surrounding the arrest of predatory puppeteer and evangelical kid show host, Ronald Brown.
If you haven’t been following what is surely one of the most lurid stories of the year, a bit of background from The Huffington Post:
A Florida puppeteer who entertains children at birthday parties, schools and churches, secretly wanted to rape, kill and eat them, cops said.
Ronald Brown, 57, of Largo, was arrested last week after federal agents found that he’d allegedly been chatting online with child pornography suspects about “extremely graphic discussions regarding kidnapping, sexually abusing, murdering and eating children,” according to a federal complaint obtained by the Tampa Bay Times.
