Things, stuff, and other items of interest

October 31, 2010

The Zombies are coming... actually, they've already been and gone.

Ever since I grew old enough that the act of walking around asking complete strangers to give me free candy seemed sort of weird, Halloween has for the most part lost it's appeal for me. Now this doesn't prevent me from enjoying the work others put into it though. Case in point: the photos in this entry were taken last weekend during the Ottawa Zombie Walk

I wasn't really too sure what to expect. If I'm going to be completely honest, this happened over a week ago, and I'm still not entirely sure what to make of it. I would guess the numbers around a thousand people maybe? I've never been very good at estimating the number of people, zombies in a crowd, mob.

The zombie theme really seems to be catching on these days. A local editor / group (?) edited an old zombie flick into a 'choose your own adventure' style series of clips on YouTube.

Since this is turning into something of a link-fest post, you owe it to yourself to check out this online comic website: "His Face All Red" by Emily Carroll. I found it earlier tonight on reddit, and thought it was pretty impressive. 

In the mean while, Happy Halloween folks, and keep an eye out for the zombies.

Check out all of my zombie pics here on flickr. To date, they are far and away my most popular shots on flickr.
