Hey All You Zombies

Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony 2013 - on Livestream.com

With Richard off doing red carpet interviews and lunches with Errol Morris this week at the Toronto International Film Festival, we’ve had to postpone our show this week, but we will be back and TIFF tales aplenty. In it’s place I’d like to share with you the first streaming feed or the Ig Nobels, a comedic science awards show filled with nonsensical presentations and unpredictable acts. It’s funny that an awards show that actually has entertaining speeches would be the one to find an effective way to stop them from going over time. Enjoy.

Hey All You Zombies!! Episode 51

Back from the D23 con in Anaheim, we discuss the recent creative explosion happening over at Walt Disney that includes fresh new movies, wild animation techniques, apps, and explorative video game worlds. And we talk about the campaign to save drive-in theatres, the disappointing movie “Jobs”, and mark the passing of Elmore Leonard.

Hey All You Zombies Episode #50

We are back from summer break with so much to talk about. Richard shows off the creepy, little doll sent to him AFTER his review of The Conjuring, we compare notes on Shark Week’s outcry-inducing fakery, welcome the new Dr. Who, test out Johnny Depp & Gore Verbinski’s theory about Lone Ranger’s failure, and try to choose between eating lab-grown beef or insects in our burgers.

Here’s the links from our show:

We pull out the survival bag this week for World War Z, both the movie and the book, and for Paula Deen’s cooking which is surprisingly not the reason behind her troubles with the Food Network. Plus, Richard gets ready for the new David Bowie exhibit coming to the AGO, a condition for which there is no cure.

Hey All You Zombies!! Episode 48 - Zombies, Superman, & The NSA

As World War Z approaches, Richard puts together a collection of little-known zombie movies and we discuss our new lack of privacy with agencies like the NSA listening in, Microsoft’s new mad used game rules for the Xbox One, and the many actors who have played Superman over the years.

Hey All You Zombies #47 After Earth, Red Wedding, Dr. Who

Richard Crouse’s birthday vacation in New York means that we skipped a week, but also that he has some cool stores to share about close-up magic, Alan Cumming’s MacBeth, and rare record shops for this week. We also ponder the After Earth’s monstrous failure in theatres, Game of Throne’s RedWedding shocker, and the potential for Dr. Who to be played by a woman.

What do you mean, Flash Badger approaching?

It’s here! The final mix and music video of Mr Weebl and Brian May’s protest anthem for Team Badger. As we mentioned in this week’s show, the Queen guitarist teamed up with the badger-meme creator to send out a call for help in their fight for critical thinking in response to the UK’s proposed badger cull.

Making a special appearance is Brian Blessed reprising his role as Prince Vultan.

Regardless whether any of this makes sense to you, I think it’s an awesome piece of internet culture. Go Team Badger! Go Badger Boys!

Hey All You Zombies!! Episode 46 - Space Oddities, Spock Songs, & Badgers

Too many fun things to discuss this week. There’s Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s poignant version of Space Oddity, the one-and-only Mr. Spock (but wait there’s two now), the odd attacks aimed at Angelina Jolie’s mastectomy, and Queen guitarist Brian May’s creative Badger campaign.

Let us know what you think!

Hey All You Zombies!! Ep 45

As we post this, Cody Wilson’s 3D Printed Pistol file has been downloaded more than 100,000 times. This week we touch upon what is surely a complex and unpredictable news.

We also enjoy the way Ray Harryhausen has been remembered this week, offer impressions of Iron Man 3, and wonder about The Great Gatsby, Downton Abbey, and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.
