If you liked Shaun of the Dead, can I highly recommend this film, Fido? It stars Billy Connolly and Carrie Ann Moss (from the Matrix). A friend of mine lent it to me, and it was great.
Some of the most adorable zombies you will ever see try to attack your house in one of PopCap’s great games. Defend yourself with sunflowers, cherry bombs, potato mines and wall-nuts.
To start off February is Zombie month…
A classic, still worth a watch.

Hey, sorry for neglecting you guys last week. I was in Amsterdam with Jolaine Incognito, who you might remember from Demon Hunting and Mummy Month fame. Internet was spotty at best, and there were beers to be drunk.
More about the trip later, since I’m so jetlagged right now you’re lucky you’re getting a demon, but let’s just say I brought home a couple of deities you’ll be interested in meeting…
Let’s say you happen to be walking in a Japanese graveyard late at night, and you smell fresh blood. No, someone didn’t leave their coffin open. You’ve just got your early warning of danger from the Kubikajiri, a Japanese ghost, or yurei (which means ‘faint soul’).
The Kubikajiri is a spirit who lost its head sometime in life (I’m guessing right about the end part), and wanders graveyards looking for a replacement among the living and the dead. None of the heads will do, unfortunately. So it eats them instead. I am not sure how this is accomplished, since it wouldn’t have a mouth.
I suspect the supernatural is involved.

I used to date a zombie, actually. I wanted a guy who loved me for my mind.
No, I’m not qualified to write anything about the neurobiology of zombies (or even my own). It’s from a Harvard Psychatrist.
Check out the article from io9.
Finally, someone came up with a good reason to study math in school. Wired.com reports on a some math grad students who came up with the equation for fixing a zombie apocalypse.
Halloween has become a little lame, folks.
It’s lost its ooomph. Once, it was the spiritual successor to ancient rituals were humans took control, took back the night from the dark forces that threatened to strike out at us.
Not now. Now it’s for the kiddies to collect candy.
Enjoy this zombie walk video.
