Drew Carey & Reason.tv on The Biography Channel; Coming Soon: Reason.tv & 20/20!

The Biography Channel recently ran a documentary on Reason.tv and Price Is Right host Drew Carey. Here's the section on Drew's involvement with Reason.tv (approximately two minutes).

On March 13, look for Drew to appear with John Stossel on ABC News' 20/20 in the special Bull---- in America. The program, which looks at medical marijuana, eminent-domain abuse, nanny state laws, and other topics, is inspired by Reason.tv segments.

    sounds more like it was inspired by Penn and Tellers wonderful show on Showtime

    If reason wanted to do something that that really advances libertarianism, they'd ask ________ this question "______ ____ ___ ________ _____?"

  • ||

    Seriously, A&E's Biography is decent coverage. Good on ya.

    It's ALL GOOD; anything to slow the tide of Bull____ in America!

    Who let Nick use Gaius Baltar's pad for the interview? (Thought it got nuked...)

  • Orange Line Special||

    What's funny about this is the idea that Drew Carey took a course in doc making, an insult to those who've made good docs.

    Since Reason has probably left for the weekend, if anyone wants to actually do something to prevent billions of the stimulus from being wasted, go publicly ask a politician this question to their face on video, and then upload it to Youtube. That video would get hundreds of times the views of the dreck from Reason.

    If you can't ask that, you can still do something by urging others to ask questions. Heck, make up your own question. Just don't think that a video from a washed-up game show host is going to have any sort of impact.

    Orange Line:

    Those questions are meaningless and idiotic. It is irrelevant who gets the pointless jobs. What matters is the confiscated money being used to pay for them.

    The rest of your comment was just as dumb.

  • ||

    Jsub Lonewhackoff's question on the other hand was smart and relevant.

    And could change the way we do politics in America.

  • Jesse Walker||

    Lonewacko: I don't believe you ever gave me a direct, yes-or-no answer to my query earlier this month. Have you ever taken your own advice? Have you asked a public figure one of your inane questions, then uploaded the results to YouTube? If not, then why not?

    Note: Asking someone a question and then posting a self-serving account of the exchange on your blog doesn't count. There's gotta be a YouTube clip at the end.

    Bonus query: Has anyone else ever asked any of your questions and posted the results to YouTube? If so: How many views did it get?

  • ||

    I have actually clicked on Lonewhako's blog a few times, to see what he was talking about.

    But the site is pretty poorly done, and I have a very short attention span.

    So I never figured out what any of his questions were.

    I think if OLS were to actually put his write his questions in his posts, he might get them answered here.

    I do remember a couple of times where Lonewhacko posted some good stuff.

  • Warty||

    Jesse, if you really cared about getting Lonewacko to shut the fuck up, you'd ask him some hard questions about why he doesn't shut the fuck up and upload his answer to youtube.

    Lonewacko, when I tell you to shut the fuck up, please know that I have your best interests at heart. I tell you to shut the fuck up only because I love you. Shut the fuck up, Lonewacko.

    I can't believe Jesse actually conversed with LoneDumbass. Shit, Jesse won't converse with me. What I'm taking away from this is that I should be more of a total, grade-A nimrod* and then reason editors will converse with me. I'm off to a good start with this post, I think.

    Oh, and fuck you, Anonymity Guy. Please die and post it on YouTube.

    And, he said, planting the "open thread" flag right in LonelyWanker's heart, Obama has urged the mayors of America to spend their StimulusDollars wisely.

    So we have that going for us.

  • BakedPenguin||

    Lonewacker did kind of respond to Jesse Walker's question once. The answer was along the lines of "I'm Lonewhacker, and I'm a really important blogger, and can't be bothered to do things I tell a bunch of people who disagree with me to do."

    As far as intellectual honesty goes, it was right up there with his "I'm not against immigration, because I think they should allow 3 people a year to legally immigrate here" argument.

    Epi, you got a problem with Nimrod? You ain't man enough to fuck with Nimrod.

    And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

  • Orange Line Special||

    I responded to and p0wned Jesse Walker yet again here. As for the "self-serving account" bit, I suppose we could say the same thing about all those who conduct interviews and then write about them, i.e., most reporters. If Walker disputes my accounts of those responses, then he should contact those I asked and see if they say something different. Either that, or shut up.

    As for Adam's comment that it's "irrelevant who gets the pointless jobs", the answer to that is here. And, the fact that someone would say it's irrelvant who gets those jobs illustrates one of the core problems with most libertarians: they aren't patriotic Americans who buy into our Constitution; they've moved beyond such concerns and see themselves just as Communists see themselves.

  • ||

    Oh crap. While I've got duty.

    Shut the fuck up, LoneWacko.

  • Kolohe||

    Some additional important (but ugly-ass) Nimrods.

    A decent nimrod except of course for this that not only was overplayed, but nobody picked up on the irony of the title.

    On a completely different track, I don't know if this has been discussed yet here. What does everybody think?

  • BakedPenguin||

    J sub - at least those are some original mascot names. The schools I went to had: none (grammar school); Lions (middle school); Wildcats (high school).

    Also, Ham begat Cush who begat Nimrod, right? There's a bad joke in there somewhere.

    Kolohe, considering all the cheap irony Green Day slathers on its lyrics, I can't believe no one got it.

  • Jesse Walker||

    I responded to and p0wned Jesse Walker yet again here.

    You "responded" to me, but you did not answer the question. I posted a follow-up in the same thread, and you ignored it. And now you're failing to answer again here.

    One last time: Have you ever posed such a question ON TAPE and POSTED THE RESULTS ON YOUTUBE? Publishing your self-serving blog accounts doesn't count because -- let me put this in all caps, so you won't miss the point this time -- that ISN'T WHAT YOU'RE ASKING OTHER PEOPLE TO DO.

    And yet on another unrelated tanget.

    Do cylon souls possess a conservation law?

    Not all the physical aspects of skin job production are clear. The five built the other seven (eight) models, that much is certain. What is unknown is the limiting factor in the production runs. The resurrection ships appeared not to be nanotech on-demand body replicators a la the fifth element, but rather to have a bunch of corporeal forms on the shelf ready for issue. It is also apparent that while each model number possesses the same DNA, as well as having some other psychological connection that we often attribute to twins in the real world, each being is clearly an individual, capable of independent sentience and free will.

    So what made them create the number of copies they did, but no more? I suppose an easy answer is they churned out all the new copies prior to the five being exiled and assimilated into colonial society. Cavil knew enough to make the bodies. but not the 'souls'. So they had enough spare parts to indefinitely perpetuate those who existed, but create no more.

    But if this in not the case, it creates an interesting metaphysical question. What is the difference between a cylon soul created ex-nihilo, and one from a download of a previous life? On a practical level, if the the post-five cylons were able to create new copies without downloading, what was preventing them from eating their seedcorn? Or was a half century too small of timeframe to go past 'peak-body'?

    I guess Orange Line missed the part where our economy is in the shithouse because a bunch of rich citizens handed out loans to other U.S. citizens who couldn't afford to pay them back, and/or used financial scams to artificially inflate their worth or steal money from the rest of us. Or the part where all the hardliners against immigration are the same people who benefited from these scams and the subsequent 1 TRILLION DOLLAR scam against all American tax-paying citizens to cover the losses of the scammers who scammed less effectively than the scammers who came out most-ahead. You know, that part that made a couple million people illegally working on slave wages completely irrelevant to our economic situation. That couple million without whom we'd be in an even shittier situation, because we'd be even less able to cope with international competition. The part where the cost of day-to-day needs like produce and manufactured items would be much higher. The part where pitting us against other people who just want to make an honest living through hard work and fair wages is a HUGE DISTRACTION to keep our eyes off the people who are really screwing us.

    Seriously, of all the good questions we need to ask about this idiot bailout scheme, you're worried about whether some of it is going to end up in the pockets of people even worse off than you? At least in the midst of all this you know what your real priorities are: getting rid of all those damn beaners, right?

  • BDB||

    Immigration (illegal and otherwise) is way, way down now for an obvious reason--there are no jobs here.

  • Justen||

    Immigration (illegal and otherwise) is way, way down now for an obvious reason--there are no jobs here.


    Yeah, so I've read. According to your average nationalist it's not about jobs though, it's about the sinister scheme concocted by the brown man to infiltrate our country, steal our welfare money and ship it back to their families in Central America, with the ultimate goal being to impoverish citizens and cripple our economy so they can annex the southwest back into Mexico. Or some other nonsense. So where the evidence doesn't fit the theory, the evidence needs to be corrected.

    You can check out any of these nonsensical anti-immigrant books or blogs (not to mention almost any Fox Nuz broadcast), replace "illegal immigrant" with Jew, and get a pretty good idea what this is all really about.

  • Kolohe||

    replace "illegal immigrant" with Jew,

    replacing immigrant with 'irish' or 'n*****' is more appropriate; as these were the unwashed ignorant masses that generated antipathy on the fear that just by their sheer numbers they would subjugate the white race. Anti-semitism, in contrast, has generally characterized Jews as a shadowy elite controlling everything behind the scenes to subjugate the white race.

    RE: Confiscated Marijuana overvalued

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Date: 2008-12-31, 10:15AM PST



    Sort of.

    Cannabis intended for recreational consumption comes in several different grades ranging in price from $10 a pound for compressed bricks of seedy Mexican hemp flowers purchased near the source up to $3,500 a pound for manicured colas grown indoors by farmers who produce small crops. That same $3,500 pound can be sold to consumers for up to $25 a gram, meaning that pound's street value if sold by the gram is in the neighborhood of $11,000.

    But, the case in point is the series of raids this summer, which authorities claimed netted 138 pounds of cannabis from 340,000 plants. Since they raided in August, the plants they took were immature, not yet having set their flowering tops or colas, the portion of the plant used as a drug, and at least half would have been male plants that produce nothing. Had those plants, which represent less than 10 percent of the county's entire crop, survived to maturity they would have yielded somewhere in the neighborhood of three-quarters to one pound per plant or about 150,000 total pounds of low- to mid-grade cannabis which would have been valued at something like $500 to $1,000 a pound depending on how far east it was sold and in what quantities for an estimated net sale price of conservatively $75,000,000. Factor in the percentage of undetected crops and we see the county's illicit outdoor cannabis crop can conservatively be valued at $750 million in initial sales. End-user sales and indoor gardens would raise this number considerably, and it would not be unreasonable to place a value of Tulare County's current cannabis industry at $1 billion, all of it untaxed.

    Let me isolate that statement for effect: Tulare County is currently home to a $1,000,000,000 unregulated, untaxed industry that our elected officials are actively and ineffectually attempting to eradicate at the taxpayers' expense, thus depriving the county and state of at least $80,000,000 in annual sales-tax revenues while they charge us for the privilege.

    Think about that when you read we cannot afford to fund rural health clinics or that our schools are in need of repair or that we can't afford rural fire stations or if you live along or must drive ill-maintained county roads or if you're one of the thousands of unemployed or are affected by that unemployment or if you or one of your family members is considered an outlaw because they use cannabis or if you think it's wrong to destroy Yokohl Valley in the hopes of generating a tenth the revenue cannabis could provide the moment it is legalized.

    We are starving to death and considering cannibalism while surrounded by delectable fruits hanging from the vine and ripe for the picking. That's genuine Reefer Madness.

    No, I haven't posted such a video. But, it doesn't matter, and you're engaging in, of course, a LogicalFallacy. Even if, given the chance to do what I suggest I instead asked a puffball as you would, it still wouldn't matter. That would be hypocrisy, but it wouldn't invalidate my campaign. Pointing out my hypocrisy in that case would simply be an ad hom.

    Your complaint doesn't even rise to that level. Just because I haven't been able to practise what I preach doesn't say anything about the validity of what I'm preaching.

    LoneWacko --

    Jesse engaging in a logical fallacy (no, I fucking refuse to sandwich the words together) would actually matter if he were making a syllogistic point about whether your position is right or wrong. He isn't.

    Instead, the point seems to be that if you are a hypocritical and/or lazy tool, there doesn't seem to be much practical point in taking your advice about what we should all go do with ourselves. Your inability to do something that you yourself have argued is easy, simple, and painless, makes you lack credibility, and thus your suggestions are easily dismissed.

    If you could demonstrate that your proposed technique produced results, we would have an empirical reason to take you seriously, instead of according you the currently richly-deserved status as a pathetic but amusing mental chihuahua available for occasional kicking to release intellectual tension.

    Someone got "pwned", and it wasn't Walker.

  • Jesse Walker||

    No, I haven't posted such a video. But, it doesn't matter, and you're engaging in, of course, a LogicalFallacy

    It would indeed be a logical fallacy if I had said, "Lonewacko doesn't do this, therefore no one should do this." Fortunately, I did not say this, nor anything remotely resembling this. Your infamous reading comprehension problems have struck again. (This is, incidentally, one of the reasons why I consider the accounts on your blog unreliable.)

    What I did was ask a question -- and apparently not a puffball question, since you tried so hard to dodge it. Now that you've finally answered it, please answer this follow-up (which I also asked you earlier, and which you've also dodged so far): Why haven't you followed your own advice?

    And: To your knowledge, has anyone else asked any of your questions?

    And: If so, how many views did their YouTube clip get?

    Up yours. I have open comments, and I have yet to see someone pointing out an error in fact about something I've written.

    As for the rest of you BS:
    1. The only reason we know the name "Joe the Plumber" is because he asked BHO a question. If JTP had been a prosecutor who was familiar with an area where BHO was weak he would have at the least cost BHO several points.

    2. I know based on personal experience from another field that what I'm suggesting works, depending on the questions and the questioner.

    3. What I'm suggesting works hundreds of times a day in courthouses throughout the land as lawyers discredit witnesses and the like. If you don't know how that works, go see a trial, idiot.

  • ||

    The Stossel segment is a major coup; congratulations! Getting featured on a prime-time network television show (which is backed up by a powerhouse marketing/PR department) is a much more effective tool for explaining libertarian ideas than any YouTube gimmick. I know, because I'm a major studio publicist who does NOTHING BUT dump stuff on Youtube. The cost of promoting a YouTube video is wildly expensive, and rarely accomplishes much. For a public policy think-tank, it's unlikely to be effective; Nick's appearances on O'Reilly are much more useful than having a Reason intern run around with a camera, trying to crash press conferences.

    "Ramble On" is embarrassingly stupid. Discuss.

    Seriously, a drug-adled hippie who'd only heard about the the Cliff Notes of the book from a friend of a friend of a friend could have done a better job with this:
    How years ago in days of old
    When magic filled the air,
    Twas in the darkest depths of mordor
    I met a girl so fair,
    But gollum, and the evil one crept up
    And slipped away with her.
    Her, her....yea.
    Aint nothing I can do, no.
    By the "evil one", they presumably mean Sauron. But, that makes no sense since he had many others to do his dirty work and he wouldn't waste his time "creeping up" on Robert Plant, even if it were convenient for him. Could there by another "evil one" being referred to? While the orcs were evil - by design, in fact - to call one of them the "evil one" would be giving even the best orc way too much credit. The Ringwraiths ("Nazgul" in Black Speech) were certainly evil, but there were several of them and the "one" part clearly implies a being or non-being who only has one role, i.e. Sauron. Yet, we've already dispensed with his role.

    As for the rest, the closest women were in Rohan or Gondor, and there's no indication in the canon of any women attempting to enter the "darkest depths of mordor". Plus, the locution is all wrong; no Middle Earth dwellers would use a word such as "aint", including orcs or even lesser beings.

    In brief, the song just does not add up.

    No, it isn't. Why should I want to stop people from doing what you suggest? If they actually ask decent questions, they could do some good, though I doubt it'll have the earthshaking effects you predict. If they ask dumb questions, they'll be in for a little public embarrassment -- but why should I care about that? Go for it. I'd love to see video of you posing one of your rambling queries to a public figure. You could be the next Star Wars Kid.

    I suppose you could split hairs about it, but it comes down to the same thing: the inane idea that some group identified by their skin color or cultural heritage belong unilaterally to some vast conspiracy to drag the working class into poverty and stage a political takeover for their own benefit. Or the further inanity that being against immigration by particular groups or generally opposed to multiculturalism amounts to 'patriotism' in an immigrant country founded on freedom of expression, religion, and the dream of making a better life for oneself on some distant shore.

    An administration official said Obama was proposing to cut the deficit, which private economists project will rise to $1.5 trillion this year, through a mixture of tax increases on wealthier Americans and spending cuts.

    "The deficit this administration inherited was $1.3 trillion or 9.2 percent of GDP. By 2013, the end of the president's first term, the budget cuts the deficit to $533 billion or 3.0 percent of GDP," the official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

    "Most of the savings will come from winding down the war in Iraq, increased (tax) revenue from those making more than $250,000 a year, and savings from making government work more efficiently and eliminating programs that do not work," the official said.

    The United States spent about $190 billion on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2008. Obama has pledged to withdraw U.S. combat troops from Iraq within 16 months while ramping up the U.S. military effort in Afghanistan.

    BDB, did you read my post on camel case above?

    PS,
    I'm not RWR, even though I sound exactly like him.

  • Elemenope||

    I'm a little old-fashioned myself. I'd prefer to use a hunter-seeker on him.

    What if he remains perfectly still?

  • BDB||

    No, just did now. I stand corrected. Or, StandCorrected.

    I'd still like to know why he DoesThis.

    I loved the exchange about God and ball-and-socket joints.

    Maybe his space bar is sticky from...excessive use.

  • BDB||

    Is it to look HipAndCool for the YoungPeople so they will read HisBlog?

  • Naga Sadow||

    Chris Kelly spoofers now? This thread is dead.

    Elemenope,

    The burn was directed at Chris after Jesse burned him.

    Yeah, I'm having some troubles with the...excessive use...of my keyboard, too.

    Senor LoneChoad is full of mystery and wonder.

    I loved the exchange about God and ball-and-socket joints.

    That was particularly inspired. I'm looking forward to John Henry's development. And it's still somewhat disconcerting that he's "in" Cromartie.

  • Elemenope||

    Giving him access to the Internet was a poor plan.

  • Naga Sadow||

    Epi,

    I went to the Urban Dictionary to look up choad. Please pick the correct entry you were refering to:

    A medium sized boy, ofcourse with a dick that is wider than it is long and a rhyming sirname. However this word is used in replacement.

    Characteristics include:-
    Deep Arrogance
    Knowitallism
    and a wide awful taste in music

  • ||

    a dick that is wider than it is long

    This is the correct entry. I would have thought you would know this.

    Anyone watch Flight of the Conchords? I just watched the one where Jemaine dates the Australian girl and almost passed out laughing.

    Epi,

    What. Ever.

    (grabs toys and prepares to go home)

    I'm gonna head over to the Urkobold spot and type away on BakedPenguin's post of "Zombies, Fast or Slow".

  • economist||

    Naga Shadow,
    Allow me to weigh in on the zombie debate: The creatures from 28 Days Later aren't zombies. They just have the rage virus. They die after a few weeks, because they don't eat.

  • economist||

    Zombies are reanimated dead people. The rage virus carriers in 28 Days Later aren't dead yet.

  • ||

    You dudes are retarded. Zombies are zombies. George Romero taught us that. Don't you understand?!? If it wants to eat brains/you/haggis, it's a fucking zombie. Case closed.

  • Naga Sadow||

    Economist you fool! Did you not see the Dawn of the Dead remake? Those fuckers can run now! It sucks! All my plans revolved around using others as bait for the slow zombies while I stocked up a boat that I will "liberate" from its owner, taking along a few choice skanks of course, and shipping out for the islands. Those plans are ruined with fast zombies. The infection would spread faster than anyone could possibly stop.

  • ||

    Did you not see the Dawn of the Dead remake?

    Blasphemy! How dare they!

    That's it, I'm watching The Monster Squad.

  • Kolohe||

    I suppose you could split hairs about it,

    You don't understand; it's what I do. It's all I do. I wait for a point and then nitpick its heart out.

    Also. slow zombies live in the uncanny valley and represent the innate, universal, and ancient cultural artifact of the fear of the alien.

    Fast zombies live on the far side of the valley and represents the equally innate but somewhat narrower and newer cultural artifact of the fear of technological change.

  • Naga Sadow||

    Kolohe,

    Get outta my head! Get outta my head, dammit! Damn people and their damn psychobabble!

    Epi,

    The remake wasn't bad at all. No stupid cowboy shit in the mall. The ending was just heart wrenching. They make it to the boat, and the food is bad, engine dies, they just make it to the island and . . . BAM! Zombies already there.

  • ||

    Naga, you make me sad. The remake was a desecration. Malls in PA don't have gun stores--or liquor stores.

  • MNG||

    I think zombies should be fast, George Romero be damned. They should be fast because slow ones are not very scary.

  • Naga Sadow||

    Epi,

    I thought is was Wisconsin?

  • Naga Sadow||

    MNG,

    Don't cry for mercy during the great zombie apocalypse. Slow ones meant you could have saved yourself. Fast ones mean humanity's extinction.

    Slow ones are scary. A scratch or bite means you become one. How many people would try to save their infected loved ones or friends? It would snow ball into huge numbers of zombies where they become really dangerous.

  • ||

    Zombie chicks are HAWT.

    The fast are better in the sack than the slow, but they're all worth a tumble.

  • Naga Sadow||

    J sub D,

    Disturbing. You should post as J sub Zombie next time.

  • ||

    they just make it to the island and . . . BAM! Zombies already there.

    Why would you assume you'd be safe on an island? Unless zombies melt (like the Wicked Witch of the West); it's not like they're are going to drown, or anything.

  • Naga Sadow||

    I just thought you could get a reprieve. That's all. Zombies just wander around looking for tasty human morsels, not sea kittens.

  • Elemenope||

    Fish find zombie to be delectable.

    You got a problem with inter-mortality dating, Naga? I detect some undeadophobic bigottry there.

    But only freshwater fish like pirahnas and northern pike are zombivores. This reduces the number of zombie safe islands considerably.

  • Naga Sadow||

    J sub D,

    I'm a bigot on inter-mortality dating. Sorry but despite my god like presence here on earth, I am still under the "mere mortal" tagline.

  • ||

    I'm trying to imagine a word equivalent to "heteronormative".

    I can't.

    You fool! You neglect the awesome zombie consumption powers of the sharks!

  • Naga Sadow||

    Elemenope,

    Impudent pup!!! Max Brooks has made it clear that zombies have no predators. They are THE apex predator of the universe. Insects, fish, yes, even bacteria will reject zombie carrion as prey 100% of the time. Just imagine what would happen if the zombie virus could be spread by mosquitos!

  • ||

    You fool! You neglect the awesome zombie consumption powers of the sharks!

    Jeez, where did you go to school? Only vampire sharks consume zombie flesh. Go here* before you embarass yourself further.

    * Yet another example of something that would be better addressed in the private sector.

  • Warty||

    Malls in PA don't have gun stores--or liquor stores.

    The first time I went to the Monroeville Mall, where Romero filmed Dawn, I was really disappointed to see that.


    Speaking of guns, I'm pretty sure I need the new Barrett in .338 Lapua. I'm pretty sure everyone does.

  • Warty||

    Vivinormative.

    I can't.



    I'd say it's more 'sapionormative'. Nobody has a problem with the undead, per se. It's the mindlessness that people, uh, mind.

    On the other hand, the origins of the title "The Serpent and the Rainbow" are starting to become clear.

  • ||

    Quick non-zombie comment (sorry! sorry!) for Brooks: The reason I say that YouTube promotion is "expensive" is because its usually necessary to drive up the # of views in an artificial way (by employing armies of assistants who do nothing but watch the video) before major media will pay attention. THAT's when you get past the true-believers and into the mainstream, which I believe is the goal. And yes, sometimes the planets are in alignment and you get a Youtube hit with zero effort, but it doesn't happen too often. Better to spend your energy on network television (i.e. Stossel interview) where there's some guaranteed impact.

  • ||

    I'm pretty sure I need the new Barrett in .338 Lapua. I'm pretty sure everyone does.

    I'd rather have one of these.

  • ||

    Thanks for the explanation; I am blissfully ignorant of the economics of youtube sensationalism.

    Lies that Big Zombie has forced major media conglomerates to swallow. I thought you shared my struggle? The human struggle. Cast off the lies of Big Zombie and embrace a larger understanding. One that includes sharks with frikkin' laser beams on their heads.

  • J sub Zombie||

    Can't we all just get along?

    I looked in CheaperThanDirt for 7.62X39...and none. I am concerned.

  • ||

    I'm pretty sure I need the new Barrett in .338 Lapua. I'm pretty sure everyone does.

    Well, I know I need one, and I think y'all should get one too.

    One of the gun stores here in Reno has them on order.

  • MNG||

    I think Shaun of the Dead pretty much killed the slow zombie, no one will ever take that concept seriously again...

    One cool thing about slow zombies is that in comparison I am the fucking Flash!

  • Mr. Chartreuse||

    I think Shaun of the Dead pretty much killed the slow zombie, no one will ever take that concept seriously again...

    It's been a while since I've read World War Z, but I think Brooks used slow zombies, so I don't think that concept is dead yet (And Romero didn't think so with Diary of the Dead, best Amish character ever BTW).

    Though in the screenplay that will make me a millionare I'll never finish, the zombies are fast. Not Michael Bolt fast, but a brisk jogging pace.

  • economist||

    "I think Brooks used slow zombies, so I don't think that concept is dead yet"

    When the undead have overwhelving number and all it takes is a bite or scratch to turn one into a zombie, even slow zombies can be a significant threat.

  • The Angry Optimist||

    MNG - a pretty solid comic series called "The Walking Dead" uses slow zombies. The use of the zombies has now become the tone of the story rather than the driving plot device (sort of; you'd have to read all 56 issues to know what I mean), but the slow zombies "live"!

  • Best-Legal-Aid.com||

    Lets bring back all the zombies

  • matt2||

    Spambots with semi-relevant comments crack me up. How inefficient is that shit?

  • Naga Sadow||

    Elemenope,

    I'm sorry but that's not CHANGE I can believe in!

  • Mark||

    @ Epi and Naga Shadow

    I believe the mall (in the remake) was some Canadian locale posing as Michigan.

  • MNG||

    Hmm, thanks I'll have to check that comic series out TAO, I haven't seen it but it sounds neat...I did recently read some of the Marvel Zombies series. It was an odd series...
