Hello My Little Pumpkins!
I'm commandeering Chris' blog for a couple weeks while he takes in all the cultural offerings in Cleveland. Chris and I go way back, we grew up together in North Dakota and then met again years later while my star was rising in San Francisco. He was a clerk in a gift shop -- and though we were an unlikely pair, we became fast friends. My star never stopped rising...and now I believe Chris is a clerk of some kind at the library...so we've both come a long way.

I love watching zombie movies so when I heard about a series I had to watch it and let me tell you I haven't been disappointed. I like how The Walking Dead brings new elements to the table that have never been done before in any zombie film I've seen. For instance I like how the cast like to NOT use guns, the reason being that the noise draws out the Dead! Also I haven't ever seen the concept where the "Living" wear body parts of "The Dead" to walk around undetected!
