Australian short film - I Love Sarah Jane
'Jimbo is 13. All he can think about is one girl, Sarah Jane. And no matter what stands in his way - bullies, violence, chaos, zombies - nothing is going to stop him from finding a way into her world.' NSFW - swearing and gore. SLYT.

Well, young folk, there was a time, y'know, when bands would put their band name on the kick drum head, so the audience could see the name of the band, y'see? Why, best as I can recall, the The Yardbirds
did it, and The Zombies
, too. And The Hollies
. Oh, and did I mention The Yardbirds
? Well, my memory's not what it used to be... oh, and there was those boys from Liverpool, used to sing about Kansas Cty
so well, why, you'd think they'd actually been
there! Now, there was this one band called themselves the Spencer Davis Group
, but I never could figure out why, cause it was that little Winwood fella just outta knee pants who was the star of that
show! [more inside]

"A group of teenagers, en route to attend a rock concert, lose their way when their car runs out of fuel in the dead of night. They find themselves in an unfamiliar rural backwater where they are confronted by flesh-eating zombies and a psychotic cannibalistic killer dressed in a sheet. It could be the plot to a thousand Hollywood horror films but while these teenagers may dress, talk and smoke dope like young Americans they are in fact young Pakistanis, and the film - Zibahkhana or Hell's Ground
- is the first modern horror film to be filmed in Pakistan.

The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash

, and the rooftop concert
at Apple Records. Check out some other fine parodies who picked up where the Rutles left off: The Mosquitoes
on Gilligan's Island, Chris and the Alphabeats
on Sesame Street, Letter B
and Hey Food
by the Beetles, the Be Sharps
on the Simpsons, A Hard Day's Night of the Living Dead
by the Zombeatles
, Peter Cook & Dudley Moore's L.S. Bumble Bee
, the Powerpuff Girls Meet the Beat Alls (parts 1
with commentary by Mojo Jojo), Beatles spoofs in a Polish sitcom
and a Bollywood musical
, Beatallica sings A Garage Dayz Nite
, the Chasers' I Am Thesaurus
, and the Beatles go bar mitzvah

"Something woke her in the night."
Genre fiction is rising from the dead to terrorize serious literature!
In response to Michael Chabon’s (previously
) new book, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union
Ruth Franklin wrote a review
in Slate beginning with the line “Michael Chabon has spent considerable energy trying to drag the decaying corpse of genre fiction out of the shallow grave where writers of serious literature abandoned it.”
Well, that didn’t go over too well with Ursula K. Le Guin, who bent her considerable
imagination and skill to the task of envisioning the zombie corpse of genre fiction and wrote an entertaining response
which was then given a suitable cover.
The whole thing is also available as a pdf
linked to from Le Guin’s website

In the grand tradition of Killer
comes Humans Vs. Zombies
, a campus game that's growing in popularity. From its origins at Goucher
, it's spread to a reported two dozen colleges. An interview with the game's moderator is here
, and you can watch the 45-minute documentary from one of the games on Google Video

"There is no feeling more satisfying than tearing into a beehive with a sledgehammer."
This from Trainsaw
, by way of introduction to their new Choose Your Own Adventure-style...er...literary adventure
. If beehives, lasers, city destruction, robots, hot scientists, and the like aren't your style, try their many rants
. Those lampooned include Bob Dylan
, all the cool kids
, and a smattering of everything else
. Definitely indebted to Real Ultimate Power
, but...definitely different.

Re Your Brains
is the music video to a great song (a memo between two businessmen, detailing the fact that one of them is now a zombie and intends to eat the other one's brains) by the much mefi'd Jonathan Coulton
; apparently inspired by his "Flickr: the Video
", fans are making DIY videos for several of his songs over at the JoCoPro
(Jonathan Coulton Project). Two of my favorite non-zombie related ones are The Presidents
, a mnemonic for memorizing every U.S. President in order & at least one fact about each, and Code Monkey
, detailing the warm secret heart of a Frito loving coder.

A la "I Am Cuba"
the folks at Caution Zero
bring you a seven minute tracking shot of a vampire with bunny slippers being attacked by zombies. We've obviously done our zombiefilter tracking here
, and here
, but I figured new advances in zombie aesthetic were worth noting.

There are actually three different kinds of zombies. All of them are like humans in some ways, and all of them are lacking something crucial (something different in each case).
Hollywood zombies. These are found in zombie B-movies...
Haitian zombies. These are found in the voodoo (or vodou) tradition in Haiti...
Philosophical zombies. These are found in philosophical articles on consciousness...Zombies on the web
