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

by Tracy Vanity

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:



“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.


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #31: HALLOWEEN!!!!

by Tracy Vanity

Happy Halloween Bizarros! Thanks for following the countdown. It was a lot of fun posting creepy shit for you. I hope you enjoyed it.

May you have a gloriously spooky day filled with horrorfun and mayhem. Here’s your Hallowgift:

Enjoy!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #30: Motherfucking Devil’s Night Mayhem!!!!

by Tracy Vanity

I’ve been so looking forward to creating this post. Prepare for some Devil Love bombardment… Ready?

This post is Satanic Patrick Bateman approved.

Halloween is tomorrow!!!! Have fun little devils!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #29: Witches and Other Supernatural Shit

by Tracy Vanity

I really need to rewatch that movie. I forgot how awesome it is! Angelica Houston is fierce.

As Halloween approaches the Halloween buzzzzzz becomes more and more intense.

It’s that metaphysical energy coursing through the air, something otherworldly is leaking out from The Beyond, ready to makes itself known.

Be it magick, witches, ghosts, goblins, monsters, or anything not of this conscious, mortal world, those who are sensitive to the energy can feel the paranormal rush that comes around this time of year.

I’ve been encountering a lot of witches lately and have been feeling pretty witchy myself even though I never used to believe in such things.

But if you have read or written enough Bizarro, you know that anything and everything is possible.

Speaking of Bizarro, this shit fits right in:

That’s not even the creepypasta video for the day, this one is:

I found that video rather calming. I think it was because of the fire. I feel the same about the sea.

So what’s the Bizarro Posse going to dress up as or what did you dress up as if you partied this past weekend? I’m going to be a dead, slutty Hunter S. Thompson since I’m going to a dead celebrity Halloween party. If you’re still unsure of what to be, here are some costume ideas:

I hope that helps.

2 Days until Halloween, oh shit!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #28: Spooky Scary Skeletons

by Tracy Vanity

Fuck zombies, skeletons are fucking awesome. Did you know there’s a skeleton inside you right now?

Spooky shit.

That’s a lot of bones. Here’s more!

What can I say? I just have a soft spot for skeletons.

Ok, that’s more corpsey but you can start to see the skeleton. It’s the thought that counts.

Here are 6 cool skeleton facts:

1. A new-born baby has over 300 bones, over time some of these will fuse together. There are 206 bones in the average adult skeleton.

2. An adult skeleton accounts for around 14% of the body’s total weight. Experiments have shown that prolonged periods in weightless space will cause bones to lose weight and thickness.

3. Giraffes have seven neck bones, exactly the same number as humans.

4. Ounce for ounce, bone is stronger than steel and reinforced concrete. However doctors throughout the world treat tens of million of fractures a year.

5. One out of 20 people have an extra rib.

6. The hip bone or pelvis is six bones joined together. It is shaped like a bowl.

So as I was looking for creepy skeleton-related videos to post, I found this video of a guy putting a skeleton in a blender. Looks like a good Bizarro cooking course.

I know I’ve posted this song before but it’s so incredible that it had to be posted again and this is a Horrormas-sounding remix:


3 days until Halloween!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #27: Evil Kids

by Tracy Vanity

This speaks for itself…

Children can do some fucked up shit. Better be wary around them kids!

This is a great doc on one of my favorite child killers, Mary Bell, who strangled two boys to death when she was 10 and 11-years old.

Monte Cazazza even made a catchy song about her.

And here I thought little girls were made of sugar and spice…

4 days until Halloween!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day # 26: Cats

by Tracy Vanity

So continuing with the animal theme…although cats aren’t creepy, some people think they are because they’re pretty intense animals (certainly supernatural). The Egyptians worshiped them as gods and for centuries felines have been seen as harbingers of good luck, misfortune, or death. Anyone who lives with cats can tell you those fuckers are trippy animals. I have two of them. One of them, Varla, used to tie sailor quality knots with her kitty string and my hairband when I first adopted her.

She pulled the hairband from my dresser and tied those knots all by herself and I woke up and found it and she added more knots and then stopped after a few weeks. I shit you not. That is 100% her doing. I can’t even make knots like that! I have no idea wtf that was about.

Cats can do some weird, paranormal shit and this cat video is rather…unsettling…

6 days until Halloween!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day # 25: Down the Rabbit Hole

by Tracy Vanity

As I delve deeper and deeper into The Land of Creepypasta I keep coming across pictures of rabbits. Why rabbits of all things? How could something so cute, fluffy, and harmless be creepy?

Yet time and time again I’d come across these pictures. It was as if Creepypastaland was trying to tell me something…but what?

Was there some Alice in Wonderland/Bizarro connection? Is the rabbit meant lead you somewhere? As I fall further down, I believe the answer is “yes.”

I mean…I do have an obsession with Lewis Carroll and the Alice books to the point where I have the first stanza of the Jabberwocky poem tattooed backwards on my forearm…and I do have the first pressing of Through the Looking Glass from 1871 as well as a huge collection of books, toys, and random shit related to Wonderland….not to mention I know both books by heart and read passages from them at least once a month like the Bible….doesn’t everyone?

But it couldn’t just be me. The creepy rabbit keeps popping up and has replaced the horse head mask as the new creepy animal trend.

That horse head fad is now passé as fuck. Even the pig is old hat. It’s all about the rabbit!

Even David Lynch jumped on the creepy bunny train when he made that unsettling bunny sitcom in Inland Empire.

Damn, just the rabbit scenes are 42 minutes long!

Still not convinced yet? Then maybe theses lagomorphic mindfuck videos from the talented Florian-Ayala Fauna will help you take the final leap:

“It was much pleasanter at home,” thought poor Alice, “when one wasn’t always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits. I almost wish I hadn’t gone down the rabbit-hole–and yet–and yet–…”

6 days until Halloween! Ready or not!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #23: Reality Cree-Py

by Tracy Vanity

The following three short video clips are real (or are they?) footage of creepy shit. This first video is an audio recording from the “Original Night Stalker” of California. To give you some background on him:

The Original Night Stalker is the moniker for an unidentified serial killer and rapist who murdered at least ten people in Southern California from 1979 through 1986 and sexually assaulted at least fifty women in Northern California from June 1976 to July 1979.

However, the connection to the Northern California assaults was not made until 2001, until which time the perpetrator was dubbed as The East Area Rapist.

The Original Night Stalker/The East Area Rapist may be considered one of the worst and most prolific “unapprehended” serial offenders in history. So far in the investigation, every named or investigated suspect has been cleared through DNA, alibi or other investigative means and methods.

With over 32 million views, you might have seen this one already but it’s still a classic. It’s an audio of the real exorcism of Anneliese Michel who was thought to have been possessed by at least 6 different demons. The Exorcism of Emily Rose is based on her story.

The pics of her looking all young, happy, and healthy while she begins to deteriorate into a living corpse, as the audio of her exorcism is playing, are effective to say the least.

So some teenagers in Argentina were just sitting around chilling and shootin’ the shit when along comes a motherfuckin’ gnome!

Full story here.

That video actually made me lol, especially after reading the top youtube comment:

what a bunch of pussies lol there’s what three of them and they scream like a bunch of bitches at the sight of a really cool gnome like creature, they should have charged and bagged that motherfucker and he would have lead scientists to the secret underground gnome kingdom in the hollow earth where he would have introduced us to the gnome civilization with its many technological marvels like flying saucers and crystal based data storage and mithril coated artillery shells…..pussies -waste0fspais

Well said, waste0fspais. Well said.

Bonus: Here’s a fun montage of creepy creatures caught on camera….

Be sure to be extra wary while venturing out into those spooky woods or streets alone, and be sure to have a camera handy! You never know what you might capture…

8 days until Halloween!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #22: Animated Hell

by Tracy Vanity

I love stop-motion animation, especially since most of it tends to be creepy and dark.

This is a really good short about a claymation guy…that happens to look a lot like John Lennon…who is trapped in an ambient noise hell with stuff like spooky nuns, witchy sex, and this cool, creepy pointy-nosed guy without a face who melts into his twin. Yes, it’s pretty trippy. I love the soundtrack and the artwork is incredible. A very creepy-beautiful, surreal art film.

Please share your favorite stop-motion films, clips or shorts if you have any!

BTW all the pics in this post are from Jan Švankmajer films.

9 days until Halloween!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #21: Monsters

by Tracy Vanity

You never know what could be lurking in the dark….

You know, I actually find creepy shit comforting.

What does that say about me?

I have no idea what the fuck that thing in that pic is…it’s kind of cute.


10 days until Halloween!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #19: Chaos

by Tracy Vanity

This video reminds me of tripping on DXM or mushrooms. The mind can be a very fucked up place…

Also this video proves once again the awesomeness that is ferrofluid!

Here’s how to make your own ferrofluid. It’s really quite easy and the perfect Bizarro science project..

Now you can make your own futuristic mind-fuck art!

I love science!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #18: Food

by Tracy Vanity

Another great short by the Daywalt Fear Factory. I thought I’d go easy on you today and give you something that is more cute than creepy. I love that this well-made horror short takes place on Halloween. I want a cookie companion!

Since we’re on the subject of food, I might as well post some literal creepy pasta:

Sorry, I know I promised to go easy on you but I had to post that. Spooky! :P

BTW what’s your favorite spooky Halloween recipe? I’m all about (vegan) hotdog mummies! This Shining inspired bento box is pretty fucking awesome too.

Be careful who you sleep with…


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #16: Things That Go Bump in the Night

by Tracy Vanity

Definitely sit in the dark alone for this one:

We’re at the halfway mark now kids, 15 days until Halloween and I still have loads of creepy shit to post!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #15: Keeping it Necro

by Tracy Vanity

True story of a man who loved a woman so much he keeps her corpse, has sex with her, and tries to bring her back to life even though she’s been dead for two years! The story becomes more bizarre than that…

This reminds me of one of my favorite films. The following clip is actually one of the most epic film scenes in the history of cinema. I was blown away and rather turned on when I first saw this. If you haven’t watched Nekromantik 1 & 2 yet, you must!

Nekromantik 1 is about a necrophiliac couple who fuck and woo corpses that the male protagonist, Rob Schmadtke, acquires from his job at Joe’s Cleaning Agency, which is a company that removes dead bodies. When Rob gets fired from his dream job and his girlfriend Monica leaves him for a corpse, he does this to himself at the end:

Necromantik 2 opens with the same scene and then Monica digs Rob up and falls in love with him. So necromantic!

I recommend any film by Jörg Buttgereit. He makes some beautifully fucked up shit!

I also recommend this great interview with a female necrophiliac which answers all your burning questions about necrophilia like “how?” Originally published in Apocalypse Culture.

For the record, if any necros want my body when I’m dead, have at it! Just please be sure I get a Tibetan Sky Burial after you’re done.


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #14: Vanity

by Tracy Vanity

Also known as “The Woman Who Powders Herself”.

Something of a hybrid between Jean Cocteau and Jan Svankmajer in its gothic expressionism and artful grotesquerie crossed with the metric precision of Kurt Kren’s more clinical materialaktion films that experiment with the plasticity of surfaces (most notably, in the deformed figures that recall the disfiguration and self-mutilation of Kren’s short film, 10/65: Selbstverstümmelung), Bokanowski’s earliest film, La Femme qui se poudre (The Woman Who Powders Herself) is, as the title implies, an evocation of concealment and unmasking, where the mundane act of a Victorian-era woman’s ritualistic application of cosmetic powder seemingly opens the window – or perhaps, Pandora’s Box – into underlying human anxieties of physical beauty, youth, desirability, and objectification. Reflecting the superficiality of societal notions of beauty through the alienness of landscape and the ephemeral riddle of true identity through epic, soul-searching journeys and faceless phantoms that emerge from thin air before vanishing from view, the terrifying images break apart and eventually disintegrate into irresolvable fragments of haunted memory within the course of the increasingly abstract film, as the waking dream descends ever further into the realm of nightmare and the deepest recesses of the subconscious, unraveling the veil of human vanity to reveal amorphous shadows cast by empty souls.

I love the surrealism of this video and the subject matter definitely hits close to home. I get more of a Begotten/Un Chien Andalou vibe than Švankmajer. What do you think?


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #13: FACE

by Tracy Vanity

Today’s creepypasta video is from the insanely talented M dot Strange, creator of one of my favorite movies,We Are the Strange, which you really need to watch is you haven’t already.

This is definitely a video you want to watch alone in the dark with all the lights out. Enjoy!


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #12: Tits

by Tracy Vanity

Attack of the boob! There are worse ways to die.


Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #11: Puppets

by Tracy Vanity

Damn that pic even freaks me out!

The following two-part animated short is dark, beautiful, and of course, creepy. It reminds me of Jan Švankmajer, whose work I adore. I love puppets and stop motion animation!

★ BTW Happy spooky birthday to Madeleine Swann, our top Bizarro Central Halloween countdown commenter! ★
