Let's Talk: What are You Reading This Fall?

Okay. It's time to call it. The long days of summer are gone, and with them went the endless opportunity to take on a new project or adventure, no matter the time. For the next few months, the daylight hours will be spent mostly at work, with our free time coinciding with the dark, crisp nights of the season. The perfect time to do a little whittling or carving by the fireplace, or perhaps time to start a pot of your famous chili and cast iron cornbread. Or, when you just have a few spare minutes to yourself, read a great book.

Okay, Let's Talk: What's Your Favorite Stephen King Novel?

So... I realized something over the weekend. I was listening to a podcast that had intended to have a conversation about the new Dark Tower movie, but since it was, apparently, completely boring and not worth discussing, they decided to chat about their favorite Stephen King books, movie adaptations, mini-series, etc. And it hit me:    

I have never actually read a Stephen King book.

Zombie-fied My Little Ponies

created at: 04/29/2012

Looks like the zombie apocalypse has arrived and its unfortunate victims were none other than My Little Ponies. As an ardent fan of The Walking Dead, zombies are on my mind more often than they should be...however I hadn't really considered zombie animals before, let alone cute little ponies. Mexican artist Dianita Ceron created an entire series of pony zombies that she calls My Little Zombie.

Where Are They Now? Humorous New Photos of Horror Villains from the 70s and 80s

It's always fun to discover the child actors we knew as kids, and see how they grew up alongside of us. Or perhaps even envision what the characters they portrayed might be doing now. Photographer Federico Chiesa takes a similar route, but explores what might have happened to the bad guys from some classic horror and sci-fi movies. After all, you can't get stabbed and shot and caught on fire over and over again without some consequences.

created at: 12/03/2010

From the looks of it, zombies are at the height of their fame - mainstream films, television shows, books, and most importantly, the fact that "Brains..." is now a oft-cited mainstay in our popular parlance.

"With these posters from Hollywood is Dead, the trend has spread to some of our all-time favorite films.  The re-imagined movie posters pull a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on classic movies like Back to the Future, E.T. and Star Wars.  Each poster comes with a frightening design of the original image and new more appropriate tag lines.  And for your holiday gift giving what kid wouldn’t love a poster of the age old classic – The Lethal Mermaid."

Totally Horrifying Stationary

There was a time I thought the embossed petunias and tiny blue birds on my grandma's thank you notes were the scariest things I'd ever seen printed on stationary.

And then this morning, I stumbled upon the letterheads of 13th Street, Germany's premier horror and crime channel, designed by Jacques Pense. Each sheet of paper, envelope, and note are emblazened with zombies who interact with the office supplies that are place upon them - staples through the face, a binder ring in the eye, or peeled off flesh from an envelope pull tab.
