Skelly-style

Skelly-style...

Yes, yes, yes … I am back, revived, reinvented, revenant, and as stylish as ever … at least for now. On this day I am celebrating skelly-style, which I am so happy to see so well-executed (yes, EXECUTED) all over the web, especially in places like The Revival Outpost where...
Dead Love: Warm Bodies and Stone Cold Bonies

Dead Love: Warm Bodies ...

And while I’m on the subject of films, let me add that I recently saw Warm Bodies and, well … be still my barely beating zombie heart. Based on Isaac Marion’s  novel of the same name, the film stars Nicholas Hoult as zombie R, Teresa Palmer as Julie, and John Malkovich...

The PR racket is enough to raise the dead. And voila, here I am! You bet I’m going … Where? Why, to the movies, my favorite dark and gloomy place. I’m going to see another zombie flick:  World War Z. Hmmmm, let’s see what to do about all the crazy zombies....

Interested in the latest medical study on zombie comebacks in the real (not reel) world? British British anthropologist Roland Littlewood and Haitian doctor Chavannes Douyon have done case studies on three people who have returned from the dead. All three individuals had the following...
Dead Love: Walken Dead

Dead Love: Walken Dead...

No doubt there were a lot of Christopher Walken converts after the 1978 release of Michael Cimino’s film, The Deer Hunter, but that’s nothing compared to the ultra-popular, sorta quirky stage and screen actor’s following now. I think he’s pretty contagious...

Where there is political unrest, wherever there are the disenfranchised, there are zombies! I don’t care who tells you it isn’t political; it is hijo. So no surprise that the undead turn up in Cuba in Juan de los Muertos (Juan of the Dead) or that the living swarm the...
Dead Love: Zombie Prom!

Dead Love: Zombie Prom!...

Oh, I do so want to go to the prom! Just need to find the right guy … er … I mean, ghoul to ask me to go. He’ll have to be able to get me there, though, and that will involve some serious travel as I’m here on the left coast and this prom is way the heck in...

14. Three-days-dead (4)...

There were “bloody” footprints all over the kitchen and clear signs of a scuffle. Of course we couldn’t help but notice the hand, severed and foul looking, next to a dirty white glove in a putrefying puddle on one side of the large kitchen counter. He reached into his pocket...
Dead Love: Dead and Lovely, Tom Waits

Dead Love: Dead and Lov...

God, I love Tom Waits. That’s why I’m treating you to one of my favorite Waits compositions this Sunday morning. Dead and Lovely—he could be singing about me! I will hum this tune all morning. It’s particularly alluring when matched with nostalgic images of Cuba...
