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?

Basically, this is a hair band wrapped around a wine glass, held in place with an “elegant S-hook”. (Are S-hooks inherently elegant? Or are these particular S-hooks specially elegant? She doesn’t say.)
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.
Book handles! For £28. (about $42)
Do you find it too hard to hold a book, but too easy to turn the pages?
If so, you’re in luck. This will add an easy to grip handle to your book, and it will make page-turning a complicated multi-stage process!
Oh yea, smart guy? How are you going to turn the page without getting it wet?
Mind Control, huh? You’re telling me that mumbling guy at the bus stop was right?
This sounds serious! But how are me and my family in danger?
Holy shit! You’re right! I don’t have any defense against quantum charge attacks!
Please! Help me! How can I avoid having my brain zapped with a quantum charge device?
A neutron emitter? I don’t think my lease allows me to run a nuclear reactor in my apartment. They won’t even let me have a cat.
Really? That’s the biggest risk? You’re not worried that the Powers That Be will use their quantum entangled nanotech to induce a quantum charge that modifies your neural processes and suppresses your action potential, thereby preventing you from publishing your book?
That seems like the sort of thing They would do.
If I wore that bracelet, I’d slit my wrists.
Not from the shame, just, you know, the sharp edges.
This man spent years trying to figure out the best way to store paracord in his backpack.
Looks like he finally just built one of those H-Shaped plastic things you get kite-string on.
You can put it next to your manly tools like your half-open pocket knife, your off-brand mag-light and your watch.
You can even put it next to your gun, which also has a watch.
