Nothing Like A Summer Wedding — Zombie Style

Here’s a little tidbit from the Odds and End department. A young Washington couple wanted do a little something different for their wedding, so they decided to have a parade of the undead. Ahh yes, there’s nothing like mixing the stress of a wedding with an unstoppable horde of fleshing eating corpses. The usher’s job must have been hilarious — “Bride, Groom, or Undead”. And while the answer to the last group may seem obvious, I have been to weddings when it really wasn’t the case. … Read entire article »

Cockneys vs. Zombies

As the old saying goes, dying is easy but comedy is hard. Now combine them together – comedy and dying – and you got a little high risk / high reward thing going on. Unfortunately, I have found that most zombie comedies seem to fall short of the mark. I think it’s because zombies themselves are pretty funny and so, a lot of poorly written movies just don’t get beyond them. The great zom-coms truly embrace the genre. Comedy sparks from the intersection of characters and conflict and while a gag is funny from the film’s perspective, it is deadly serious in another perspective. … Read entire article »

The Run for Your Lives 5K

If you ever needed motivation to run a 5k, I believe I found the race just for you. It’s one thing to run with a bunch of other runners, but it’s an entirely different thing to be chased by a crowd of flesh eating zombies. Introducing the “Run for Your Lives 5K” and it sounds like a blast. ** BLOG ENTRY INTERRUPTION ** Let me just pause for a moment … running races is incredibly fun. It’s a great way to enjoy a beautiful day with a whole bunch of cheerful people.

Zombies Set Loose in NYC – Hilarity Enuses

You gotta love stuff like this, especially on the tail end of a very long Monday. It’s one thing to see people pretending to be zombies on the street, but how would you act if you actually did see a zombie on the street? I’m guessing there’d be a lot of head scratching followed by an immediate trouser dumping. Well, some unlucky New Yorkers got to experience that very real thing. Mind you, the zombies weren’t real (put down those chainsaws, guys). They were created by some incredibly talented make up artists whereby the flesh eaters were set loose on the streets with a camera crew in pursuit. Some of the reactions are absolutely hilarious with one child getting enough nightmare fuel to last him into … Read entire article »

Westboro Zombies

Whether you hate or hate them more, the Westboro Church is one group that definitely grabs the headlines. Between burning books for giggles or protesting the funerals of fallen soldiers, those not-so-fine folks tend to provoke the similar sensation of a splinter being thrust underneath a fingernail. Naturally, they crave this kind of attention. After all, it does them no good to hate without an audience. And while I’m sure quite a few of them have received a much needed slap from time to time, I’m guessing it makes them feel like martyrs of some sort. I don’t know. It’s hard to understand what kind of thoughts (if there are any thoughts) that circulate their rock-like brain matter. … Read entire article »

Blast from the Past: Bush Versus Zombies

I’m pretty tired tonight, so it’s time for a stroll into the old archives. Here’s an old youtube clip that I remember a couple years back. It’s a pretty clever interview with President Bush whereby a reporter calls him out on his fifty billion dollar defense spending allotment to combat zombies. It’s a pretty funny watch being how everything is put together. It’s so well done you get the sense that this actually happened and that Bush really did decapitate a couple of tourists. Check it out. Bush Vs. Zombies (youtube.com … Read entire article »

Funereal Home Advertises for The Walking Dead

In what can only be described as “you got to be kidding me”, an English funeral home managed to do two things at once. One side of the building provided assistance and planning for the death of a loved one. The other side promoted a show that gave instruction on what to do when that loved one has returned as a zombie. I’d say that’s one funeral home that has all the bases covered. Evidently, the funeral home was farming out its ad placements through Clear Channel who filled the billboard space with the brainless efficiency of one who hates his job but has nothing better to do. Honestly, I think the home could have really capitalized on the placement by opening a gun shop on the … Read entire article »
