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.
Someone asked for stills from our new Gunther von Häagen-Dazs video, so I’m sharing them here. If you haven’t seen it, and curious to learn about the new Bodyworld ice cream flavors Body Brickle, Vein Glorious, Blackberry Necrosis, and Cadaver Crunch, just watch the video.
Thanks to Laughing Squid for alerting us to this production which takes that “literal” music video approach in a slightly different direction. It’s by the Wilmginton, NC based live theatre troupe Pineapple-Shaped Lamps.
Some have accused The Art of Bleeding of propagating fake science with our Anatomy MInutes series, and for that we thank you. But recently we discovered the Tumblr site Fake Science, which truly outdoes us in that field. Like Anatomy Minutes, and for that matter the BBC’s faux science series, Look Around You, Fake Science conveys its teachings with the help of charmingly dated visuals.
This is a sampling of some of the more medically oriented offerings from Fake Science, but we suggest you waste much more of your boss’s time perusing the entire site. It’ll be well worth your while.
