From: AsianWack.com Hell hath no fury like a nurse scorned in this gruesome but witty horror story from Thailand.

Buddy Max & His Birthmark

http://youtu.be/0wUVhuBus1g 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 […]

Vintage Dissection Lab Photos

Nowadays before medical students begin their cadaver dissections, they are invited to participate in high-minded ceremonies honoring those whose bodies are soon to be opened, but in the wild and wooly days before the mid-twentieth century, med students lightened this grisly rite of passage with humor,  painting macabre slogans on their dissection tables, and sometimes […]
