Seriously, this may be one of the coolest posters I’ve ever seen. I will be framing it for my office as soon as it gets here. I got the PDF too, which is very awesomely annotated and noted by the artist with lots of cool tidbits… and it’s HUGE. There are hundreds (if not thousands) […]

…is coming to Houston. The Walking Dead Escape is an obstacle course that you can run either as a survivor, a zombie, or both. You can also just watch, but who wants to ‘just watch’ all the fun? As a walker, you get your makeup done by professional makeup artists, and get to spend a couple […]

UPDATE: Sadly, this video is no longer available. 🙁 A friend of mine posted a link to Youtube, where the entire movie – albeit with Portuguese subtitles – is available. All 100+ minutes are there in their starkly riveting glory. Of course, if you like the movie, I suggest buying it (somehow, though I don’t know […]
