Nurse-sploitation Thai Style

Nurse-sploitation Thai Style

Thanks to our friend Tracy Vanity for tipping us off about this 2007 hospital horror film from Thailand: Sick Nurses. From: AsianWack.com Hell hath no fury like a nurse scorned in this gruesome but witty horror story from Thailand.

What We Did with our Nov-Jan Vacation

Maybe you’ve noticed: we tend to overextend ourselves.   Not only does this blog cruelly stimulate and occasionally sate your need for medical curiosities, but it does double duty promoting the tenuously related activities of The Art of Bleeding Magic Ambulance crew.  Squeezing in hours to actually produce those ambulance shows can itself be a distraction from […]

The Haniwa All-Stars

The Haniwa All-Stars

The Haniwa All-Stars were a delightfully bizarre 1980s musical freak show, created by master drummer and musical provocateur Kiyohiko Senba. While their musical style was all over the map, their costuming was consistent:  pajamas or nurse uniforms. Guitarist and fellow experimentalist Henry Kaiser describes on the Mutant Sounds blog thusly: “Many of the members are big pop […]

Masaru Shichinohe’s Magic Nurse

Masaru Shichinohe’s Magic Nurse

We don’t know much about Masaru Shichinohe, but we know what we like, and we like the not-entirely-innocent magic of these dreamlike scenes of children playing doctor. His site is in Japanese, so all we can say is that he was born in 1959 and has 18 books published, none of which have yet been translated into English.  Linguists […]

More Trashy Nurse Books

Time for another shameful glimpse into the vanished world of tawdry nurse novels. In this installment, we move from the stereotypical hospital courtship romances toward the seamier world of male fantasy.  Thanks to Curt Purcell’s fabulous Flickr set for these examples. Not exactly a sensitive portrayal of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.  And who knew PTSS could […]
