It’s that magical time of year again! And yes, Halloween is still awesome. Just like this Japanese zombie lolita metal music video:

This is the time to fully appreciate the wonders of horror Happy Meal art and zombie Chia Pets no matter how fucking old we are!

Exorcist

To get you lubed up for the most fucking awesome holiday ever, here is the latest Cyriak short.

This beautifully fucked up music video from the aptly named Insane Films, should get you in the spooky spirit!

Enjoy these haunting gifs were created by Kevin Weir for his project, The Flux Machine.

Until next time Bizarros. Please feel free to post your favorite horror films, songs, art, and pictures of any cool Halloween stuff you see in your neck of the woods.


Bizarro Mix Videos Round 3

by Tracy Vanity

It’s already Friday night here. The future’s so bright, Mickey’s gotta gouge out his eyes!

I complied a 13-song Bizarro youtube mix music video soundtrack for your weekend.

This time, instead of listing each video one by one, I thought it would be better to just surprise you. So hit play and enjoy listening to it while WRITING, WRITING, WRITING, getting laid, smoking out and chillin’ with your homies, stumbling around drunk in your apartment, eating expired spam from the can, masturbating to creepy plush porn…or whatever the fuck it is you Bizarros do for the weekend. This compilation is good for any Bizarro occasion.

Enjoy!


Meanwhile in Japan….

“A Japanese inventor created a giant, Mech-like robot controlled from within. The machine, called Kuratas, stands thirteen feet tall and is capable of speeds of up to six miles per hour.”

Reason #495969 why I need to visit Japan!


Bizarro Thailand: Body Parts Bakery

by Tracy Vanity

I wanted to visit the body parts bakery for a Halloween post but I couldn’t find where it is. It might not even be open anymore, so instead I’ll just post a video someone else took of it:

The bakery is/was owned by artist Kittiwat Unarrom. His family are bakers and he incorporated his art into the craft. All of those parts are completely edible. I really hope I can track it down because I’d be interested in trying a limb…


Another glorious video gift from The Art of Bleeding: All Things Nice

What are girls made of?

Kim Fowley, dolls, hot nurses, female anatomy, floating nursery rhyme characters, tripped out medical fetish animation, beautifully disorienting music…what more could you ask for?


Bizarro Bangkok: The Naturally Mummified Monk of Chinatown

by Tracy Vanity

I was strolling around Chinatown with some friends when we happened across a Vietnamese Buddhist Temple. It looked different than the typical Thai temples so we went to take a closer look and a nice, handsome monk invited us inside.

In a hall of important relics and pictures, behind glass was a mummified monk:

The living monk explained that the mummified monk had preserved naturally and so was not cremated as is the norm when a Buddhist dies. Instead his body was dressed and kept in the temple as a sacred relic.

There was a plaque explaining his biography:

plaque_zps2b5b6b28

“Chao Phra Khun was born Rueng Mathura Sakul at home in Phadung Krung Krasem canal, See Yak Mahanak district, Phranakorn province, Bangkok, on August 19th, 1900.
At the age of 21 years old, he was ordained as a monk at Wat Mongkol Samakom on May 20th, 1921.
At 09:15p.m., on April 11th, 1958 hen passed away in Chulalongkorn hospital.
It was time to perform the cremation ceremony, the head of Anamm Nikai asked the disciples to open his coffin. Miraculously, his body was still remained and dried without being decayed. Monks brought his body out of the coffin and rearranged him in sitting position. His body as relic was placed in the Patriarch’s Hall in order that Annam Nikai monks ans lat people are able to worship him.”

Thai grammar is cute. It’s cool to just stumble across something like this, it’s definitely not on a tour guide. This is not the first mummified monk I’ve seen.

I came across another one, again randomly during a road trip for New Years Eve. The Buddhist temple was empty so there wasn’t anyone to explain why this monk was mummified but he was clearly mummified on purpose as he had that waxy look:

Apparently, naturally mummified monks are not a rarity here in Thailand. There’s a famous naturally mummified monk on the island of Samui who has been fitted with some cool shades. I haven’t had a chance to visit him yet.
