SPACE TRIPPING is an extremely indie movie that may or may not ever be released, but the trailer is crammed full of so much futuristic weirdness and druggy comedy that I had to post it here.
Feast your slimy peepers on “Swamp Fist!”, the latest offering from The Slow Poisoner. Swamp witches, Trump decapitations, and moss mounds abound!
Bizarro author and all around renaissance man Michael Allen Rose has launched a YouTube show called REVIEW ME PLEASE! Mr. Rose has a lot of strange and wonderful interests, is a consummate performer, and should’ve been given the Tonight Show instead of Jimmy Fallon. Playing the straight man, sound connoisseur […]
Straight out of Poland comes THE LURE, a sexy mermaid cannibalistic musical. And with all of those things combined it’s probably hilarious, too. It’s definitely weird, so check it out where available!
WHO IS LOTTIE PERSON? Is she a gorgeous, fun-loving social media star with a perfect life or a gross, allergy-ridden mess? Check it out on Amazon!
When a deviant mind like Jeremy Robert Johnson is featured in Publishers Weekly, you know the world’s getting weirder. Huge congratulations to JRJ. Time for every weirdo (and some of the normals, too) to get excited for Entropy in Bloom, due to drop in April!
Flying Lotus is a rapper who’s branching out into the world of filmmaking, beginning with his first movie, a post-apocalyptic acid trip called Kuso. Word on the street is that this movie is aggressively weird and puts some people off… which makes it a must-see for weirdos everywhere.

It’s Halloween, which is probably our favorite holiday here at Bizarro Central. We hope you all have fun tonight dressing up as razor-bladed apples and piles of dirty laundry. One bizarro fan celebrated by creating her own costume based on Polly from Carlton Mellick III’s Quicksand House. It looks amazing! […]
by Gabino Iglesias When people say “my favorite time of the year,” I always think about BizarroCon. When it comes to fun, inspiration, friendship, learning, performances, booze, and love, nothing compares to that second week in November where weirdos from all over the world get together in Portland to ensure […]
This comic is a real throwback to the old European sci-fi comics, the kind that throws a heavy side of weirdness in with the aliens and robots, and was usually drawn by Moebius. It begins with a regular guy living in the future named Verloc. Along with a robot ape […]
I’d have called it “Dragons Fucking,” but “Dragon Sex Calendar” is still a serviceable and accurate title. Apparently there have been a few of these, and now the 2017 edition has arrived. Now you can have the geeky sexiness of dragon porn spliced with the everyday banality of asking what’s today’s […]
Disgusting people. Disgusting food. Disgusting nudity. Hot pink clothes and weird murders and dysfunctional relationships. Love. Madness. Disco. All of this is encapsulated in the recently released The Greasy Strangler, a story about father and son weirdos in the vein of John Waters or Tim & Eric. This is a […]

That lovable pop star Beck has released a video for his latest single, “Wow,” and hidden among the surreal imagery, dancing girls, and all the pretty horses, there is bizarro author Cody Goodfellow, one bushy-faced cowboy standing tall in a sea of nothingness. That’s probably a good way to describe […]
If people are comparing it to A Nightmare on Elm Street, then it’s right up bizarro’s alley. Baskin is a Turkish horror flick about five cops who inadvertently wander into a dream-like Hell-like surrealistic nightmare world. Check out the trailer below.
by Lee Widener The Residents are one of the most enigmatic, long-lasting musical projects to exist on the fringes of modern music. Formed in Louisiana in the late 60s, and moving to California soon after, they have never appeared in public without disguises. Most often, though not always, they wear […]
There are a fuckload of superhero movies these days. So many that they’ve settled into a steady rhythm of diminishing returns. The bigger nd more mainstream superhero movies become, the more flawed most of them become. The good ones feel like the same story over and over, and the bad ones […]
Japan creates all sorts of weird stuff, and today we’re going to explore their love of the adorable daiogusokumushi, or Isopod. Americans might find this creature strange or creepy, but to the Japanese (and weirdos all around the world), it’s cute enough to warrant its own stuffed animal. Soft, intricately detailed, […]
Very recently, author Kevin Donihe visited Rotterdam, the Netherlands to attend the UBIK: FUTUROSITY festival! While he was attending, Donihe was given a microphone and thrown in front of a crowd, because this is what you do with Kevin Donihe. The result is one of bizarro fiction’s top writers sharing […]

According to The Toronto Star, a new restaurant is opening in the city’s Koreatown area. It’s called Poop Cafe, where they make all sorts of foods that have the appearance of shit. I think those dishes are supposed to be urinals. You can try some of these toilet-themed desserts if […]
by Lee Widener In this month’s column it is my great pleasure to present an artist I consider the grandfather of Bizarro music, Spike Jones. Spike Jones was a drummer, percussionist, composer and bandleader mostly popular in the 40s and 50s, though he did release some recordings in the 1960s. […]
The Fantasia International Film Festival is in full swing, and this week is of particular interest in bizarro world. Mixed in with the deluge of movies and short films on the Festival schedule are some short films based on the work of authors we know and admire. If you are […]
Most of “The Weird Stuff” is underground, but every now and then something VERY strange comes along with enough charm and smarts to push through into the mainstream. That’s what we have in Swiss Army Man, just released to theaters this past weekend. It’s a story that seemingly shouldn’t exist, […]
by Lee Widener For this installment of Bizarro Music, I’d like to introduce you to Andrew Goldfarb, otherwise known as “The Slow Poisoner.” I’d like to, but most of you are probably already familiar with him. For those of you who are not: Andrew Goldfarb is Bizarro’s true Renaissance man. […]
We bizarros love weird stuff, and we’re always on the lookout for oddities that the internet has hidden away. Thanks to one of my fellow weirdos I found this little short film from 2001, and since I love weird shit and I LOVE stop-motion animation, I knew I should post […]
When you’re an aquatic monstrosity with a hunger for human flesh, dating can be hard. Everyone on the beach runs away from you and your only friends are bottom-feeding crabs. This is the life of Grue, a pulpy lagoon creature who’s started reading Shakespeare and now wants to fall in […]
If you’ve been around the bizarro genre long enough, then you know that Takashi Miike is one of our patron saints. Miike has made a ton of different movies but he’s never afraid to unleash mass cinematic insanity, whether it’s a horror film, a samurai film, or even children’s movies. His latest is […]
by Lee Widener For the third edition of Bizarro Music, we travel across the sea to jolly ol’ England, to profile Vivian Stanshall. “Vivian Stanshall was an English singer-songwriter, musician, author, poet, and wit, best known for his work with the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band…” – Wikipedia Like many other […]
by Lee Widener For the second edition of Bizarro Music, I’m going to talk about Dot Wiggin. But who is Dot Wiggin? You know who she is, you just don’t know you know. Yes, THAT Dot Wiggin – 1/3 of the Shaggs. Why am I singling her out? We’ll get […]
by Lee Widener This is the first in a monthly series I will be writing about Bizarro Music. We all are familiar with Bizarro Fiction, but what is Bizarro Music? In this column, I will illustrate what I mean by Bizarro Music by using the same principles used to define […]
