If you had told me yesterday that there were people who read and/or watched The Walking Dead and came away from it thinking "you know, we should try eating brains, I bet that is a really good idea," then I would have called you a dope and walked away from that conversation as soon as I could. And yet, the Internet has proven, as it always does, that I am the real dope here. Philadelphia's Dock Street Brewing Co. has created a new beer flavored with brains. Actual brains. Actual, literal, roasted brains.
To be fair, they're goat brains and not human, but I'm not actually sure that makes it a whole lot better. Besides, there's cranberry in this stuff, and that's just gross.
Hey guys, have you heard about zombies? You know, the slavering undead hordes that hunger for brains and also function as a metaphor for consumerism or whatever? Apparently they are very popular these days -- so popular, in fact, that they've become a pretty prominent element of pop culture over the past few years. Well, as far as I'm concerned, you can keep all the movies, comics, video games and concept albums about zombies, because the genre has reached its new apex, and it came in the form of a neon orange toy revolver.
Yes, the 2014 NERF guns are here, and this year, everyone's favorite toy arms manufacturer is lining the shelves with a new line of apocalyptic toys called Zombie Strike. And they are probably my new favorite thing.
Though the Centers for Disease Control doesn't ever expect to have to grapple with the undead or their virus-afflicted kin, its free downloadable comic, Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic, uses the fictional threat to remind readers of the importance of being ready for real life disasters...
One of our favorite geek rock bands Kirby Krackle returns with an all-new music video for "Zombie Apocalypse," a track off their eponymous debut album. Animated by Damon O'Keefe ("Metalocalypse") and Daisy Church, "Zombie Apocalypse" depicts the familiar story of an average dude (vocalist Kyle Stevens) waking up in a word overrun by the flesh-eating undead, only with many amusing references to comic books and nerd culture such as:
-A desolate and bloody Quick Stop convenience store ("Clerks")
-A zombie-fied fail whale (Twitter)
-A zombie hobo with a sign reading "World War Z Vet" ("World War Z")
-Zombie-fied Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
