Post by: UNGCO on May 05, 2007, 05:27:43 PM
Not really to do with anything, but I found it funny.

I always found Winnie the Pooh pretty hardcore... I mean, he never wears pants, Piglet is always in tights, and Rabbit, Tigger and Owl never wear a thing, and finally, Eeyore is naked and on all fours, often without even a tail to cover him. I think this is just an extension on that.
(Hooray for destroying your perception of A.A. Milne's classic children's tales forever! Not an accusation at Disney)

Or an example of an as yet unheard of form of sexual perversion?

Almost as scary as those stories of teddy bears with sex organs sewn inside them :-[

Are you referring to those plush toys being manufactured by Dr Gunther von Hagens? In a documentary about him, he showed a few toys that were to be sold at his museum upon its opening - plush dogs with their internal organs and whatnot sewn inside.

Just the thing to help the young budding psychopath get started on this hobby of choice. There'll be no surprises when Timmy decapitates his ex-girlfriend's cat, and he'll know exactly where to hang those organs!

...
Geez, just over ten replies and I've already delved into psychopathic murder. Now... who do we blame, Disney or porn?

i think both, if you look at both, you'll see that all psychopaths we're influenced at some point by porn and Disney.

What a disturbing thought. Wearing your mothers skin now takes on oedipedal ( sp? ) correlations to the death of Bambis mother and the consequent wish to wear her fur as a coat...

It was the only logical progression for this topic... the original thread was pretty messed up to begin with.

I have no idea how anybody could assume psycopathic nature from an interest in how the internal organs of animals work... BUT interestingly enough in the documentary that was mentioned (tying in with the original subject) Von Hagens does infact liken himself to Walt Disney.

His analogy comes in response to the question about what his Body-Worlds exhibition explores, he states that Walt Disney began a generational love affair with the moving image, and that by making these things readily available he sold the entire world on the concept of animation. Von hagens is the 'Walt disney' of anatomical science, as he instituionalizes a dormant love affair with the intricate workings of the human body. By having these anatomical specimens on display the average person can view and become intrigued. Hence he, like Walt Disney before him have taken a subject matter and created a conversation between creator and viewer.

Interesting way of percieving his art, and a fair analogy really in my opinion. On that note, has anyone seen his latest series of public anatomical dissections on disease? They have been very interesting, tackling cancers and what not and showing how they interact inside the body. Ofcourse the squemish should not watch, but it is definately more than side alley or freakshow in nature, absolutely fantastic series.

I had no idea he has a new series. I could easily Google it but I'll just ask here for the sake of it - when's it on?

It has actually finished airing. It was aired about a month ago on SBS about 11pm on a monday night, was only four episodes in length the same as 'Anatomy for Beginners'. I'll probably buy the DVD when its out. I love gunthers work.

Interesting. I looked it up and the follow-up series was about disease and such. Apparently Channel 4 are hoping to commission new programs involving the Von Hagens.
