Morbid Zombie Mondays ~ 10 Characters

In honor of my new segment FCF I thought I would give you a list of 10 characters I'd want with me when the impending zombie apocalypse is here. Enjoy! (I love making lists!)


Bill Pardy, Mal or just Nathan Fillion
What can I say about Nathan Fillion that would do him justice. Well first of all I'd want him with me so I know he'd be alive during the zombie takeover. It might be his dashing good looks, his witty characters or just because he looks like he could wield a machete real good, but he also just looks like he might be a natural badass.




Beatrix Kiddo
Okay, you have to admit it, Kill Bill's Beatrix Kiddo is the single most hardcore, ass-kicking female character to come out maybe even ever. The bitch can wield a samurai like no other and slice up some zombie ass. All I can say is, she's super bad-ass and she'd be a survivor until the very end.






Ash
He has a knack for always trying to save the girl, so I think my chances might be pretty good with this one. Not to mention he's from one of the greatest horror franchises I can think of. I love me some Ashley Williams with his quick comments and chainsaw arm. I can't think of anything to say about his boomstick that doesn't sound too sexual so I'm leaving it alone.




Tom Jane as Frank Castle or David Drayton
Where's Tom Jane? It's a little joke around our house because I swear I have multiple dreams of Tom Jane a week and wake up asking, Where's Tom Jane? Oh the things I would do to Tom Jane... but that's not the entire reason I chose him. I just keep on thinking he could save me from a zombie attack over and over and over again. I'd even take his character Henry from Dreamcatcher. He makes me still think he has to be related to Christopher Lambert somehow, but then again I don't wanna have sexy dreams of CL, so I'm okay with it. He seems like he could kick some major ass and still be so damn good looking while doing it. Okay, my mind is wondering so let's keep going.






El Wray
This fucker knows how to use a gun. Since he didn't make it trough planet terror, he shouldn't be on my list, but he is one bad ass mo fo'. But he also doesn't need a gun, he's got some damn good moves and he's quick on his feet. Just goes to show you: Good things come in small packages. He just needs to work on not sacrificing himself and his awesomeness for other people.






Cherry Darling
Another Planet Terror cutie is Rose Mcgowan's character. She might seem like an extra hassle, but she's got some moves herself. A little unrealistic, but she makes it work. She and I  can make kicking zombie ass look good.






Tallahassee
This is no big surprise considering all of the zombie killing he already does in Zombieland. Plus Woody Harrelson is one of the people I would most like to just kick it with, but if there has to be some killing I'm counting on Tallahassee. He's got no fear when it comes to confrontations with the undead, which will come in handy when they are swarming you. Plus he's funny, I like that.






John Preston
Did you see what he did in Equilibrium, hell yeah I want him with me. Enough said.






Daryl Dixon
He's my favorite in the Walking Dead series, mostly for his decisions and passion and all around thinking. He thinks about things differently than most and has the potential to be a real hero. He may be pig-headed at times, but come on, the world is overrun with zombies.






Dwight Schrute
I know you may be laughing at this, but if zombies decided to raid Scranton, you know Dwight would do something about it. His survival skills may just finally come in handy. If anything he is always good for a laugh. But I'm thinking Dwight would come to redeem himself and kick some major zombie butt.

Surgery went fine

For anyone who was keeping track, my surgery was yesterday to get my wisdom teeth out. I was so much more scared than needed as usual, but I've always had really bad anxiety. My Dr., Dr. Wilde made it quick and painless and I'm feeling just a little sore today. But the nest thing is that I was supposed to have a permanent numb spot on my lip from the surgery because it was a little evasive, and I don't!

So today me and Cian are going up to Tacoma to help my best friend from High School move back down here. We are going up there with her mama Robbie who has always been a really cool lady, so I'm looking forward to the trip and the outcome. I just realized I hadn't told anyone this great news yet, woops. But I'm super excited to have my best friend back and her little girl Elora. 

FCF


Remember: These are hypothetical scenarios about fictional characters. Have fun.

Betty Boop

Scenario: 

Once again our favorite animated sex symbol is on her way to Grampy's unaware of the happenings of the past couple months. This is no big surprise since our lovely Betty has always been a girl with more heart than brains. Tagging along with her as always is her faithful boyfriend(and dog) Bimbo. Once they cross the familiar bridge over the Grampy's they notice he's looking a little more peaked than usual. Grampy starts to advance on them as Betty holds her hands up in confusion.

What Happens:

We all know those gammy legs won't be able to run for too long, haven't you seen her tiny feet? This 30's sex kitten will more than likely succumb to a zombie bite either from her inability to run like a normal person or by her lack of common sense to not trust her blood drooling grampy. But no worries, not even a zombie would want to ruin something this cute.

Final Conclusion:

She'll be a zombie, but one sexy zombie.


Leeloo

Scenario: 

Leeloo is once again defending herself and her planet when the zombie hoard decides to infect half the planet. She runs into trouble when a group of 20 try to attack in a small room, the numbers are too great for the human population.

What Happens:

Your ever loving Leeloo complete with multipass will kick a lot of ass along the way through the zombie apocalypse. 

Final Conclusion:
 Survivor with a substantial body count


Otis B. Driftwood

Scenario:

Since the zombie outbreak has started, there have been accounts of people using zombies for target practice, "guard dogs" and for other unmindful things. But no one has warned the public just how dangerous it can be to play around with zombies. We bring you back to the family home of Mother Firefly and Baby to a still breathing house of torture. Otis has found new things to play with since the rise of the zombie population including Claire, a former go-go dancer turned zombie playmate. 

What Happens:

I'm guessing Otis would try and have some fun with the newly sprung zombie life. It could be through his experiments of torture or his insatiable appetite to create a new specimen. But more than likely he will just end up fucking one of the zombies.

Final Conclusion:
 Turns into a zombie from his love of necrophilia. 



Beavis and Butthead

Scenario:

It doesn't take long before the town of Highland becomes subject to the walking dead. They crowd the streets, collecting follower after follower until they come to the residence of Beavis and Butthead.

What Happens:

These lovable slackers will probably be too lazy to listen to any warning signs. By the time a full on raid happens, I'm sure they won't even budge off the couch. The zombie hoard will invade the never changing dump and surround our heroes. There would be a lot of "Hey Butthole", "Cut it out fart-knockers" and maybe a little "This sucks more than anything that has ever sucked before" but they will all be drowned out by the moans of the undead.

Final Conclusion:
 Both are eaten and torn apart on their infamous couch with nothing left but a few scraps for later. 



Happy Anniversary

It's my parents Anniversary today! Another year down!


Experiment: New Segment

I've decided to start another zombie themed segment to end your week. For almost every Friday I will be hosting a new hypothetical fantasy segment, Five Character Fridays. I'm not going to commit myself to every Friday because let's face it, I'm a busy gal and so are you guys and I'd hate to wear myself out on good posts that you aren't even committed to reading every Friday. So we'll make it for most Fridays.

Five character Fridays: We will give you 5 well known characters in pop culture and put them in your favorite scenario, what will happen to these five characters in a zombie invasion? Now let me start off by saying, this is me just having some fun, don't get pissy because I said your favorite character dies from being a dumbshit hahha. Have fun with it and even come up with some after scenarios yourself. Remember, these are hypothetical scenarios with fictional characters, lighten up :)



This Friday on Five Character Fridays:

Betty Boop
Leeloo
Otis B. Driftwood
Beavis and Butthead

Wedding Wednesdays ~ Britnie's dress came!

Oh my! I jumped for joy the other day when Cian said that my dress had come. I couldn't wait to open it up and see the end result. I custom ordered it from Light in the Box, so I wanted to make sure it was just as perfect as I had imagined.

Here's the reveal:




Now it's hanging in my living room, staring at me telling me to not eat that candy bar I bought for my daughter's fundraiser. Damn you!



We Are What We Eat: A short film



I received an email just the other day from producer Darien Davis to help out with some publicity for a new zombie short directed by Sam Toller. Along with the invite, I got the honor to preview the unreleased short; We are what we eat! Get this, the Director is only 16, which is just enough for anyone to be interested in viewing this gem. I've also been informed that they shot a record breaking 220 shots in 2 days with 5 make up artists, an impressive 6 locations and 27 zombie extras. Pretty legit! It will have its international premiere on April 27th in my lovely Seattle at the NFFTY 2012 as part of their late night horror show. They are also hosted for a limited run www.dreadcentral.com

See more on Facebook and Tumbler

You start off with Nicole, your seemingly average British High School student. But questions start to arise when she is bitten by her fellow classmate/boyfriend Karl. The school becomes overrun with undead teenagers who take their newly found eating angst out on a teacher, resulting in some bloody intestine goodness. My favorite part is the ambitious ending of the unknown, did she or didn't she.

All in all the short was successful and spirited. You wouldn't think a high school kid would pay so much into detail.The effects are rewarding for such a short film and the crew must have had a blast in the making of this, you can tell with every minute that passes. Is there anything more cute than a school of the undead? I think not! These kids did a smashing job and I wish them every success with all of their future productions. Check it out April 27th!

Morbid Zombie Mondays ~ Zombie Headshot

Sorry about the late post, Good Morning all. I'm feeling better, well good enough to write this morning. It's like someone's cleared out all that mess out of my head and I can finally function today. So thank you to whoever decided to shoot all of that out. I've been slacking on the writing, I know, but I'm sure you didn't mind me giving you a break for about a week huh? Well now that I'm feeling better, I'm coming back strong! With a new SEGMENT! Yep yep, you read that right. I'm starting a new segment this week, stay tuned! Here's a hint: it's zombie themed too.

I'm sick...

I'll be back asap, but I'm quite under the weather here. Be seeing you soon

Wedding Wednesdays ~ A FAN of vintage

I've had these vintage 1950's-60's sewing patterns for a while now and I wanted so bad to incorporate them into our wedding. I first thought of using them for place setting, but we decided not to do assigned seating. So I put them aside and took them off of my list. 

Then, we started looking for favors and other wedding ideas and fans came up. Since we are having the wedding in July, it will be hot here so fans seemed so ideal, convenient and worthwhile. I originally wanted to do folding fans, but after looking at the construction, time consumption and cost of materials, I decided against them. So we are doing good ol' fashion hand fans. 

My favorite part of them is of course the vintage sketches. I mismatched the male and female sketches to keep it fun. I had to clean them up in photoshop, cut around, combine images etc. I loved the way they came out!

All together, I did 6 designs. Enjoy and KEEP COOL. 







Shout out to Liz and Stella!

Thank you ladies for featuring me as a future zombie housewife! I am looking forward to joining the ranks!

Hunger Games!

Staying True to “The Hunger Games”

As every high school student and adult alike may have heard, there is a popular work of fiction that was recently made into a movie and is currently breaking all kinds of box office records. This, of course, would be “The Hunger Games.” As is true with any book brought to the big screen, a dance is done between a novel's finer details and the movie's depiction. In this case, is it a proper representation or completely off target? All in all, “The Hunger Games” movie seems to have been given a big mockingjay stamp of approval by fans. For the most part, the missing details could be considered inconsequential and/or simply subject to every individual fan’s taste (such as readers may not have imagined Gale as an Abercrombie model rather than a scruffy guy from District 12, though they probably enjoyed it as a viewer nonetheless). The interaction between Katniss and her Prep Team – Octavia, Venia and Flavius – goes unmentioned in the film and the endearing relationship that evolves between them is nonexistent. Also, Haymitch sobers up quickly in the movie whereas in the book, he spends much more of his time under the influence and the effort of shaping him up into a proper coach is a mission that unites Katniss and Peeta on their journey to the Games. A more serious change of detail was the mockingjay pin. In the book, the governor’s daughter, Madge, is one of the few who comes to say goodbye to Katniss after the Reaping and gives her the pin as her token to take. This gives the pin more meaning, both political and sentimental, than the way Katniss acquires it in the movie. In the book, Katniss and Peeta's heart-to-heart that goes south the night before the Hunger Games are set to start. What begins as sharing time over their individual motivations for the games ends in a fight which serves to stir doubt within Katniss over whether or not she can trust Peeta in the arena. Going into the Games, she isn’t so sure she has a teammate. In the movie, they’re conversation is amiable and it may be unclear for some why he decided to join up with the other tributes if he and Katniss were on friendly terms. To some, the lack of hovercrafts may have been too modest to note. However, they served a purpose in Rue’s case. The emotion was conveyed in the movie, but Katniss’ motivation was more than loss when it came to adorning Rue with flowers after she is killed. In the book, Katniss not only wants to honor Rue as a real person who will be missed, but also considers the fact that those in the hovercraft will have to take the flowers out of her hair and hands one by one and possibly think about what they are a part of. Through her grief, it is a way Katniss conveys a message to the Capitol. Another message moment cut short in the movie is when Katniss and Peeta are the last pair standing and are told only one can win. Their struggle over how it should end takes time the movie probably did not have and Katniss actually shows the cameras the nightlock berries before they put them in their mouths as another way to beat the Capitol at their own game. She knows they need a winner. This clear intent on Katniss’ part explains the Capitol’s feelings a bit more in the end and why they consider her such a threat. Overall, Katniss is a survivor in both the books and the movie. Within the novels, protagonist Katniss is clever, calculated, and proving a point. Some may see that in the movie, some may not. She has an intense hatred for the Capitol and its politics that may have been a bit masked within the film. Nonetheless, the books have become a political commentary and English students are studying them for a young adult fiction formula. In the end, the movies can only bring to life a story the world fell in love with and readers will have to fill in the blanks.

Chicken Donburi ~ this one's for my mommy!


Back in my home town there is a little Teriyaki place that serves a dish called Chicken Donburi. Let's just say it's a one of a kind dish, savory and sweet and filling too. I tried years ago to try and find the recipe so I could make a vegetarian style, but I didn't get the answers I wanted. Donburi literally just means bowl and is usually a Japanese rice dish. So I had to experiment with this to get the taste I once loved from Tri Teriyaki. This also happens to be my Mother's favorite dish from that place and even though it's right down the street from her, I wanted to give her a recipe that would surprise the crap out of her. It's so easy and so similar, it's crazy!

Morbid Zombie Mondays - I've got some movies for you

So I have some zombie movies for you. Putlocker and Sockshare are the best streaming links in my opinion. Check out some zombie goodness, I'll admit I haven't even done so yet, but I will now.
