Metalosis Maligna is a fake disease invented by award-winning Dutch filmmaker Floris Kaayk.
According to the mockumentary, Metalosis Maligna occurs when a metal implant has a bad interaction with human body tissues, causing the metal to grow tendrils that eventually puncture the skin from within and destroy it.
I was skimming through the video at first not knowing it was a mockumentary and landed on the part of the man in bed. I nearly died.
I’m usually unphased by even real photos of extreme gore and shit but this just freaks me the fuck out wtf im deleting the internet
it just… it just… IT’S JUST TOO MUCH
As a person with a metal plate I can safely say this is both cool and really fucked up.
I remember watching the original documentary about the terrible effects of this affliction. It was made in Japan.
Body horror— watch some Cronenberg and then move on to Tetsuo The Iron Man
So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.
I’m dubious. I should read a passage:
It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
You have some explaining to do, Canada.
You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.
Oh yeah, I totally saw this book in my used bookseller days.
Dozens of Palestinians acting as human shields stood on the roof of a house hit by an Israeli airstrike early this morning, hoping their presence would deter a second strike.
At least six of them were killed and about 25 wounded as the second Israeli airstrike was carried out.
The Israeli military had no immediate comment - probably busy thinking up how they will attempt to cover up this horrific attack.
(Photo: One of many airstrikes carried out by Israel on the densely populated Gaza Strip, July 8, 2014. Ibraheem Abu Mustafa)
If the IDF’s comment is anything like how the Israeli people I know respond to these things, it will sound something like, “Did you even hear that they murdered 3 of our innocent children? YOU CAN’T EVEN UNDERSTAND THE ISSUE WITHOUT BEING HERE HAVING ROCKETS LAUNCHED AT YOU BY THESE TERRORISTS. ALL YOU HEAR IS PROPAGANDA OVER THERE SO YOU HAVE THE TOTALLY WRONG IDEA.”
Which is actually sort of ironic since the US & Israel are bff’s and have been for generations. The idea that we’re being spoon fed nothing but pro-Palestine propaganda by our own media with the goal of vilifying Israel makes me actually laugh. That’s not how this stuff works.
This right here is Mark Eitzel. Back when I was just getting started in music people would see me and say “your performance reminds me of Mark Eitzel, you’re intense like he is!” and man oh man did I ever resent being compared to anybody, this is one of the many symptoms of Young Songwriter’s Disease, not everybody gets it but pig-headed dudes like me have to learn to accept kind comparisons with grace and gratitude instead of as an indictment of their originality or whatever. So I didn’t really get into Mark’s work until much later, but after I’d moved to North Carolina and made friends with people at Merge, I got handed a promo of their 2008 album The Golden Age, which leads off with a devastating song called “All My Love” and has one of the best mid-album triple-punch runs of the century so far: “All the Lost Souls Welcome You To San Francisco” followed by “Who You Are” and resolving on “The Windows on the World.” And I fell in love with Mark’s songs, and went back through the catalog, and sure enough, everybody’d been right all along, he walks with the giants. Merge is giving away a bunch of Merge artists covering other Merge artists for their 25th anniversary and when they asked us I knew “Who You Are” was the one for me. It is a song that I have turned to for comfort many times since I first heard it six years ago. Peter couldn’t get away, so that’s Brad Cook from Megafaun on bass here, along with me on piano and Jon Wurster on drums. We recorded at Overdub Lane with Scott Solter producing. It’s an honor to sing a song this good, this true; thanks for writing it, Mark & Vudi. I have tried to do justice by it. I’m going to attempt to make a link to the song here. My attempts to use HTML in Tumblr captions almost always fail hilariously so wish me luck.
Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
You forgot the best one though-
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."
This is perfect because Douglas Adams is the best and I’ll fight anyone who disagrees.

Blackness. Slow, laboured breathing extends into a death rattle.
V/O, female: ‘We lost the world.’

Series of fixed-camera shots of cities destroyed and deserted. The images intersperse with close-ups of wounds and dead flesh.
V/O: ‘To the dead.’

An overgrown yard crowded with shambling, rotting corpses.
At the farthest corner of the lot, something hidden in the undergrowth snatches a zombie out of sight.

Young man (Y) runs through the charred remains of an art gallery. A mob of bloody dead run after him.
Blackness. Sound of wet explosion.
Y has turned, is staring at a swamp of decaying blood, all that is left of his pursuers.
V/O: ‘We’re all prey to something.’
Hi Tumblr, I’m having a family emergency and I’m running out of options!
My Grandpa is currently missing with the car and dog. He has advanced dementia, and does not know how to drive himself home. My family hasn’t had much feedback or assistance from anyone, because it hasn’t been 24 hours yet, but we fear he could put himself in danger, or could possibly hurt someone while driving.
I’m trying to do as much as I can to help my family out, we haven’t had this kind of problem before. If anyone in the Seattle, Lynnwood, or Edmonds area could share this, it would be greatly appreciated.
We’re hoping to find both him and the dog soon!!
