Gala Premiere Screaming of “Fido
the Billy Connolly zombie film

6:30 pm at the Paramount Theatre (Burrard and Smithe) –

Zombies get in free!

Remember not to wear a costume that oozes or might stain the seats. The staff aren’t paid enough to put up with that much enthusiasm. I’m planning on arriving early, around six, bitch-slapped by Satan. What are other people’s plans?

Also, it is Pi Day today, anyone interested in a sweet late night snack? My mother fed me a deep friend mars bar earlier, curiosity getting the better of her, but despite my resulting heart rate, I do not believe it counts.

zombies get a step up

Calling classy zombies of all persuasions for a …

?! Gala Premiere Screaming of “Fido” !
A heartworming film about a boy and his pet zombie…

Thursday, March 15th; show up at 6:30pm SHARP!
Paramount Theatre (Burrard and Smithe) – sophistication neon style!
Zombies get in free!

Hot zombie starlets, suave zombie fellas, and undead big-shots of all kinds are invited to this gala affair.

If you’re more inclined to be on the other side of the lens, then bring along a camera and a nosey-parker attitude – zombie paparazzi are invited as well, just to make things fair.

Lurch, bike, car pool or cab your way to the red carpet for the premiere Vancouver screaming of Fido, a homegrown Pleasantville-meets-The Power of Nightmares-with-zombies film (more info here: )

If you’re coming from work, think day-to-night Barbie, but with more rotting. If you’ve been sitting in front of a computer all day then chances are you’re already half-way there!

If you’re unemployed then you should have no problems disguising yourself as an actor…adding zombie to the equation isn’t really that much more of a stretch.

Try to keep your oozing to a minimum as the poor ushers at the Paramount don’t get paid nearly enough to clean zombie goo from the seat upholstery.

Zombies booked for carrying fake WMDs

MINNEAPOLIS – Six friends spruced up in fake blood and tattered clothing were arrested in downtown Minneapolis on suspicion of toting “simulated weapons of mass destruction.”

Police said the group were allegedly carrying bags with wires sticking out, making it look like a bomb, while meandering and dancing to music as part of a “zombie dance party” Saturday night.

“They were arrested for behavior that was suspicious and disturbing,” said Lt. Gregory Reinhardt, a police spokesman. Police also said the group was uncooperative and intimidated people with their “ghoulish” makeup.

One group member said the “weapons” were actually backpacks modified to carry a homemade stereos and were jailed without reason. None of the six adults and one juvenile arrested have been charged.

“Given the circumstance of them being uncooperative … why would you have those (bags) if not to intimidate people?” said Inspector Janee Harteau. “It’s not a case of (police) overreacting.”

Harteau also said police were on high alert because they’d gotten a bulletin about men who wear clown makeup while attacking and robbing people in other states.

Kate Kibby, one of those arrested, said previous zombie dance parties at the Mall of America and on light-rail trains have occurred without incident. Last fall, nearly 200 people took part in a “zombie pub crawl” in northeast Minneapolis.

This year Vancouver Zombiewalk starts at 3pm on August 19th at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

DRE: What’d you spend it on?

Jhonen Vasquez: Just whores. Whores over on Sunset Boulevard and Santa Monica. Whores and robots. Some of the whores were robots.

ZOMBIES ARE BACK. We have a venue this time. This attack will be a Hallowe’en Dance Party, Monday October 31st, at The Space. (440 West Hastings). Doors at seven, Sean of the Dead at 7:30. Pass on the word. Let it shamble wild and free. More information will become available as I get used to the idea of being a producer.

Cory appreciates our efforts.

We’ve been hit by BoingBoing!


“This past weekend a zombie quasi-flashmob two or three *hundred* strong materialized in the center of Vancouver and staggered through an upscale mall, onto the skytrain and down Main Street before joining their resting brethren at a local cemetry. The Flickr group has hundreds of pics and some discussion.” These photos are *priceless*.
