Featuring Walking Dead 8 Bit Parody, The Infinite Crisis Sound Track, and The Leviathan!
Hello El Moochadores and I hope you’re having a happy morning. Or, at least an okay morning. Or, at the very least, you have an escape route planned and your car will start. In any case, we got some cool stuff to share with you today. Below check out the sound track (Batman Theme) to the new Infinite Crisis game, a new Cinefix 8-bit parody of The Walking Dead, and this amazing proof of concept short film called the Leviathan
It’s all good.
The Walking Dead (Part 1!) – 8 Bit Cinema
Cinefix recently produced a new 8-bit parody of The Walking Dead, which is really cool, but dammit, just start making these games already. I would play this. If this was on a mobile device (phone, tablet, watch… what ever), I would totally pay to play this. A little. I would pay a little. A reasonable amount. Anyways, this represents the first two season’s of AMC’s hit zombie show. According to the youtube page, there’s a Part 2 soon to be released.
Infinite Crisis Video Game Soundtrack – Batman Theme – OFFICIAL
Check out the Batman theme for the new Infinite Crisis game.the music was produced by Water Tower Music. I haven’t yet played Infinite Crisis, so I don’t have an opinion on the game, but the music sounds pretty great!
The Leviathan — Teaser
Many of you have probably already seen this floating across the internet, because it’s rad, but check out The Leviathan, a short “Proof of Concept Teaser.” It was created by Ruairi Robinson and scripted by Jim Uhls, the screenwriter of Fight Club. The first rule of Leviathans… sorry, I had to. holy shit, I’m going back to bed.
With Marvel/DC Mash-up art, Walking Dead Facts, and Swords. SWORDS!!!
Good damn morning, El Moochadores. I hope you all slept well. I didn’t. There’s a very loud owl that has taken up residence outside my bedroom window. I use to like owls. Anyways, today we skimmed the top layer of the internet and got some great fan art, an infographic, and some Walking Dead stuff.
10 Iconic Swords… Except Excalibur. WTF?
Via Geek X Girls: Check out this cool infographic from Robert Shaw a UK based illustrator and animator. Wait, the dude is from England and he left out Excalibur!?! They even made a movie, called Excalibur! All the same though (oh, and it was Geek X Girls that first pointed out the glaring lack of Excaliburs on this graph) pretty solid art and information. I think that if I were to heft just one of these swords I would some how feel manly-er.
Top 10 Facts – The Walking Dead
Via Geeks are Sexy: More zombie stuff. Yay. Okay, so, I hate zombie stuff, but yet I love “behind the scenes” TV and movie stuff. I’m feeling a little conflicted here, and tired. Fucking owl. Anyways, check out Top 10 Facts: The Walking Dead from youtubers Top 10 Memes. I wonder if the blue meth caused the zombies. Is that what happens to a blue meth addict after Walter died? Think about it…
DC/Marvel Mash-ups from Eric Guzman!
Via Geek-art.net: Professional illustrator, Eric Guzman has created these incredible DC/Marvel mash-ups (or Amalgams… which, I think means “mash-up”). I’ve posted a few below but you can see more of these amalgams (that’s a real word, right?) on his Deviant Art page.
Artist Scott Park has a new poster of over eighty female characters from television and film. The ladies from Star Trek to Firefly to DC to Pixar (and much more) all make an appearance on this poster which you can get a print of from Society6.com. Poster sizes vary from 7″x 10″ to 28″ x 40″. I think my favorites on this poster are the renditions of Pam and Lana Kane from Archer, but where’s Carol/Cheryl? What no love for the crazy? Anyways, hit the links above for more information and to see more of Scott’s really cool work!
Via CineFix and Geeks are Sexy: If you’re going to recap an entire season of a gruesome television show then, yeah, this is how it should be done. Check out this very cool mash-up from CineFix which actually does a pretty good job of getting you up to speed on the show.
It’s been a pretty good week for zombies, if zombies could have a good week. Then again how the hell would I know, closest I get to being like a zombie is on those days I have a box chuck full of donuts and uninterrupted access to WoW. Anyways, today I read on the website nj.com that a zombie walk in Asbury Park, New Jersey set a new Guinness World Record. 4093 zombies participated, breaking the old record by just 67 zombies. Check out the video below.
10/30/2010 / Uncle Chudd / Comments Off on I Finally Read The Walking Dead… or at least the first volume…
I finally got to it this morning. I finally read The Walking Dead: Volume 1, Days Gone Bye. I’m kind of struggling today, feeling half dead myself. So I think I’m going to go back and re-read it when I feel I little more awake. On the weekends I’m going to cut myself a little slack on getting a morning post. Usually I stay up late on Friday and Saturday nights, so weekend mornings I’m kind of out of it… like right now…. Still, I’m going to try and do this. I’m not exactly sure how, and I don’t want to spoil anything in case you haven’t read the book yet. If you haven’t figured it out from my other posts, I’m not much of a review writer (or any kind of writer… honestly I’d rather be working on a vector project right now, which I plan to do as soon as I’m done with this), so this is going to be short and simple. I guess I’ll just get to it….
This show looks bad ass! Check out the first five minutes of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Thanks to dailymotion.com making this available, and Geektyrant.com for sharing it with the rest of us. My friend, Chris, emailed me digital copies of the first two issues of this (many thanks!), and I picked up a physical copy of the first volume while up in San Clemente (Surf City Comics), but I still haven’t had a chance to read it yet. What the hell is wrong with me? It doesn’t air until Sunday, so I’ve got a couple days to get caught up. Watch the beginning below and let us know what you think.
This seventeen minute long video on the making of AMC’s new series, The Walking Dead, was a real treat. Thanks to GeekTyrant.com for posting this! The Walking Dead is set to premiere on Halloween night, so that’s something to look forward to… other than lots of candy, some whiskey, and half naked girls running dressed as nurses or school teachers. I love Halloween….
I saw a few different animation projects on my reader today that looked great. The first is this trailer for a 3-D film called The Lost Thing. According to their website, it’s a fifteen minute short film based on a illustrated book by Shaun Tan. I’ve never heard of the book, but after watching this I think I’ll look it up. Here’s the synopsis:
“A boy discovers a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle tops at the beach. Realising it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, but is met with indifference from everyone else, who barely notice its presence, each unwilling to entertain this uninvited interruption to their day to day lives. For reasons he does not explain, the boy empathises with the creature, and sets out to find a ‘place’ for it.”
If you want to find out more about it, here is a link to their website, www.thelostthing.com (which also looks incredible). Check out the trailer below!
