Geeky Holiday Gifts- Zombie Pinup Calendars

***some images may NSFW because these undead ladies are missing flesh and some articles of clothing***

The holidays season is upon us and the hunt is on for the perfect gifts for our friends, family and most importantly for ourselves.  This month I’ll be posting all sorts of geeky gifts to get for you and yours.

The first to be featured is the Zombie’s ‘Gorgeous and Gory’ 2011 Zombie Pinup Calendar created by the New Jersey Zombie Walk. Hot pinup zombie girls, what more can you ask for?!  They only cost $20, you can order yours here.

“The bloodiest beauties of the Zombie Walk are crawling out of the Asbury Park debris and onto 12 titillating pages of post-apocalpytic planning in this limited edition calendar!

Be the first zombie on your street to have these lovely, lacerated ladies hanging on your wall!”

‘Gorgeous and Gory’

My Zombie Pinup also did a calendar in 2009 and 2010, you can see some of the images from their calendars below.  Unfortunately, they do not seem to be doing a calendar this year but they make some great screen savers! If you want the 2010 calendar it’s only $3.99!

“Where beauty eats brains!”


Picture of the Week- The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead premiered last night and I couldn’t watch it because I was busy saving the princess with Mario (see slideshow below) so I’ll watch later today.  The Walking Dead is based on the Robert Kirkman comic by the same name.  I’ve been excited about this show since I first heard about it.  Primarily, (if not only) because I love what AMC has been doing lately with TV and it has zombies in it and you already know how I feel about them.

I recently read The Waking Dead Compendium One and damn near cried at the end (don’t worry no spoilers). I always forget it is very common that people actually die in zombie apocalypses.  It’s just hard to get used to when you come to love the characters so much.  I highly suggest it to anyone, whether you read comics or not.

Now the character below is Michonne, she isn’t in the show yet and probably won’t be for this season.  But all the readers know how absolutely bad ass Michonne is!  She’s a sword wielding, zombie killing, the hardest of cores, one woman army!  For an example of her bad assness look at this picture on how she first enters the comic.  She is practically straight off a Tarantino film and I can’t wait until she is in the show.

NYCC & NYAF- The Walking Dead Panel

The highlight of NYCC, for me, was The Walking Dead Panel by far.  Besides having a soft spot for all things undead, everything I saw and read about The Walking Dead tells me it will be another great television series.  I recently started reading The Walking Dead Compendium One, by Robert Kirkman and I am officially obsessed.  I read it for hours and couldn’t put it down, good thing I have a lot of The Walking Dead material to read since it’s been out since 2003.

The ING Theater was filled to capacity, if I hadn’t went in during the previous panel (which was M. Night Shaylaman) I wouldn’t have gotten in.  The line was ridiculous and I heard people who couldn’t get in showed just how upset they were. At the panel is the comic book creator Robert Kirkman, producer Gale Anne Hurd (Aliens, The Terminator) and director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile).  The main cast also showed up, but my battery died, typical.   At the panel we saw an “exclusive clip” from about 6 minutes of when Rick first meets Glenn.  Since mostly everything at NYCC I had seen on TV or online before from a previous con I was excited for something new.

One of my favorite moments at the panel was when the actor who plays Shane came out and the crowd booed him.  He said how happy he was to hear that because at the previous cons they cheered for him and let’s just say the crowd was Team Rick Grimes, as they should be.

I was able to get three of the main cast, Kirkman, Hurd and Darbont to sign my comic of The Walking Dead!!!  :) They were really nice about taking the time to sign comics and take pictures with the fan before they were rushed off to an interview.

Season 1 will have 6 episodes, the pilot will be 90 minutes long and the rest will be an hour.  Hurd made it very clear that the only way season 2 will happen is how well season 1 is received.  So if you are a fan of The Walking Dead series or just really excited for a new great show, watch it and watch it live (as best you can).

You can read more about the show in one of my previous post here and the amazing Zombie Week here.

The Walking Dead airs on October 31st on AMC at 10pm.  It will also air in 120 countries the same week it airs in the US!

Final “The Walking Dead” Poster

I am beyond excited for this show!  If you haven’t heard about AMC‘s upcoming zombie apocalypse show The Walking Dead read about it in a previous post here and watch the trailer here. I think this poster looks great.  It tells a lot even without zombies in it. It airs October 31st during AMC’s annual Fearfest, who is watching this with me?!

Breathers: A Zombie Lament

Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer’s Body, United States of Tara) is set to produce the adaptation of the zom rom com (zombie romantic comedy) novel Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament by S.G. Browne.  The screenplay was written by Geoff LaTulippe (Going the Distance).  Rumor has it that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (newest Hollywood it-boy who deserves it) and Scarlett Johansson (who makes up for her lack of acting skills with curves and good looks) are going to star in the film.

Breathers info via Screen Rant:

Breathers tells the tale of a regular man named Andy (presumably Gordon-Levitt’s role) who is resurrected and returns to the world of the living as a zombie.  Society as a whole is prejudiced against Andy’s kind and the undead gentleman is therefore forced to find his way in a world that denies him even the most basic of human rights.  Johansson would assumedly play Andy’s human love interest, Rita.”

Now if you still have a bad taste left in your mouth brain from Jennifer’s Body, remember Cody is only producing this zombie romantic comedy.  The director is still up in the air so I hope that JGL and ScarJo will attract a prominent director. 

PS- I Love Zombies!
