Ok. New Movie. “Night of the Walking Dead”. To be honest, it sounds like he just took two separate titles (Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead and Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead“) and jammed them together. Would that be plagiarism? Probably not. Lot’s of people rip off names, doesn’t mean anything.
An odd thing to notice about this campaign is that he capped the pledges at 500 at the $60 level, and 1000 at the $20 level, which is an interesting choice for a project with a $200,000 goal.
Now, there’s no video, but that image looks cool! To bad it’s actually an old desktop wallpaper that’s been floating around the Internet since at least 2011. Well, still … maybe he’s the guy who painted it back in 2011, or whenever. I guess we can’t prove he’s a plagiarist.
Huh. Between the basic math errors, and the plagiarism I’m starting to suspect that this guy isn’t really a professional filmmaker. Maybe we should check out his web-page.
Hey, wow. His website starts with a YouTube clip of really profesionally photographed and well written scene from a zombie movie! I’m impressed!
…Or at least, I would be impressed, if I hadn’t seen “Shaun of the Dead“, the movie that scene is really from.
Here’s a fun game. Where are these three “Movie posters” from? The first one is from that wallpaper I mentioned above. Can anyone identify where the other two come from?

This man is raising money to hire an ‘escort’ to lose his virginity.
His all-or-nothing funding goal is £25,000 (about $38,000).
£25,000?!? Wow. Being a hooker in the UK must be a pretty sweet gig.
Ok, I’m starting to get an idea of the problem here, but let’s press on.
The project comes with eight illustrations, and it’s a weird collection.
- There’s a couple of inspirational posters
- an advertisement to raise handicap awareness
- An meme-style “BEST GIRLFRIEND EVER” photograph of a naked girl playing MarioKart
- A publicity photo of Star Trek’s Commander Spock
- A photograph of a woman with something being poured on her face. (I think it’s honey, but it could be some other yellow fluid.)
…And the Video
This video is very confused. I get that he’s trying to be Charlie Chaplin. … but that’s about all I understand.
If he’s trying to make it look like an old-time silent, why is there both color and singing? If he’s not trying to make it look old-timey why is the color so horrible?
Honest to Internet, when I first saw the preview, the messed up colors made me think this was a white guy in black-face makeup!
But wait! There’s MORE!
Don’t miss his OTHER campaign to raise £1.5 Million (about $2¼ Million) to start a new religion based on the prophesies of everyone’s favorite 16th century nut-bag.
Don’t worry, he’s set up a webpage to explain it all.
So, I guess it’s become stylish to drink out of a mason jar like you’re some kind of backwoods moonshiner.
Ok, fine. Why not. They’re solid, they’re glass, they’re cheap. There’s worse things you could be drinking from. The problem is, nobody actually wants to be mistaken for some Appalachian hillbilly or a hippie with a science experiment.
What’s the solution? Accessorize your mason jar!
That’s right. Add a handle, add a lid, (Of course they already have lids, throw those away.) maybe even add some insulation and a plastic shell so you can drop it!
Of course, like a bamboo iPad case, this is entirely a fashion statement, but they always have to come up with an excuse why it’s more than that. Some say it’s “sustainable” somehow, others say that plastics are full of mysterious “toxins”, some specifically mention BPA even though they took that out of mugs ages ago.
