Chicago Zombie

Well the first item in zombie news today, Michael Jackson’s Thriller is going to be turned into a musical.  I think this is great news!  It has all the elements of a good musical; great music, neat costumes, elaborate dance sequences.  Plus, anything that allows me to hear Thriller more is a plus.

So, the other day I happened upon a website that seemed right up my alley: Chicago Zombie.  The have all sorts of zombie news, Chicago zombie get togethers, etc. such a pub crawls where everybody dresses up like a zombie.  Brilliant!

And then my zombie news went weirdly circular when MegDesk posteda zombie themed post which mentioned  Død Sno, a zombie / Nazi movie which is Norway’s entrant into the Sundance Film Festival.  Well, I saw a preview for said movie on Chicago Zombie, and I must say it looks even more awesome than I could have imagined:

Finally, Meg also sent me a link the other day on how to hack those flashing message street signs.  Of course, what more important message could you possibly send other than:


Well, it looks like someone took them up on their instructions, since I saw this today, out of Austin Texas.  Their messages were things like “Caution! Zombies Ahead!” which I like and “Zombies in Area! Run!” which I don’t like because to me it is funnier when it is phrased the way those street signs are usually phrased.  And “Nazi Zombies Ahead!” doesn’t even make sense, other than to make this post even more weirdly inter-related.

But hey, I’m not out committing crimes for zombie related jokes, so who am I to judge?



Okay, I wasn’t going to post this because it is kind of old news, but it is just too good to resist.  It just goes to show you what you can accomplish when you have a lot of time on your hands in a Filipino prison…

There are other ones too, such as music and dancing from Sister Act

Wedding dancers, take note!

Chris, Nathan, Jay, Rody…you just go totally served:

Next time I get married, I want to see it done right!

Long time no update!

Okay, well first off Sara and I changed our phone numbers, so if you don’t have my new one give me an email and I’ll give it to you.

Second off, I know I’m pretty late on this one, but Neil Patrick Harris came out last week.  There must be a lot of upset ladies out there!  I don’t know if you’re watching How I Met Your Mother or not, but the show is fantastic and NPH’s character Barney makes the show.  If you don’t watch it you should really check it out.

So where to start?  How about with this:

Tell me that is not a fantastic costume!  I crack up every time I look at that.  Even now I’m laughing!  Oh man.

Now that the humor is out of the way, let’s get serious for a second…robots think people taste like bacon!!!  This is the begining of the end for us folks.  I like the comment below the article, “Well at least we don’t taste like chicken.”  Sara pointed out that we’re too fat as a species to be anything so lean as chicken.

Speaking of eating the flesh of the living, it looks like I missed The Monroeville Mall World Record Attempt Zombie Walk in Pittsburgh.  It’s billed as a world record attempt for “The Most People Participating in a Zombie Walk.”  Basically you show up at the mall where they filmed the original Dawn of the Dead (one of my all time favs) in makeup and shuffle around for a few hours.  Sara’s favorite part was the zombie food drive.  “All zombies are urged to bring donations of non-perishable food items.”  Like brains-in-a-can?  Do zombies eat anything that is non-perishable?  Also enjoyable is the advice to “Stay on the sidewalk unless crossing the street. When crossing, it’s OK to “break character” and cross quickly. Think fast “New Dawn of the Dead” zombies verses the slower “Old Dawn of the Dead” zombies when crossing the street.”

In other record-breaking zombie news, someone is attempting to break the world record for number of people reproducing the zombie dance from Michael Jackson’s Thriller video.  150 in case you were wondering.  I guess the previous record of 3 people at our wedding reception isn’t going to hold. 😦

That is all.
