Zombie Goodness

How cool is this?

Zombie movie filming at Chernobyl

I particularly dig these comments from the end of the article:

"Chernobyl is very spooky and serves our purpose -- we are shooting in all these abandoned towns and villages, with rusting equipment lying around everywhere," Fradis says.

The sense of a post-apocalyptic world dawns as we follow the Chaika around the Chernobyl district.

Grass and shrubs sprout from holes in the sides of crumbling cottages. A graveyard for helicopters, fire trucks and other equipment used in the cleanup operation in 1986 stretches beside a road. In Pripyat, the deserted town that once housed the reactor's work force and their families, children's toys still litter the rubbish-strewn kindergarten, and fading Soviet slogans adorn the sides of gaunt concrete apartment blocks.

It's an unsettling experience that should translate into a chilling opening sequence, perfect for a movie titled "Necropolis."

I can't wait to see this.

Oh Nooooooooooooo!!!!

Think you're having a bad week?

Check out number one on the list of things you don't want to see in your rear view mirror:


Heh, I'm kidding.

My week isn't going that badly.

In fact, that was a completely benign sighting. I was parked at city hall and a cop happened to park behind me while I was inside wheeling and dealing. As you might have guessed, I was highly amused when I got back and looked in the rearview mirror.
