Paramount Pictures just released the first trailer for the new movie, World War Z. It looks pretty epic! I am a big fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead and the original George Romero zombie flicks, and just about anything zombie-related I can dig. But, everything reaches its saturation point eventually – will the release of a $180 million summer blockbuster about zombies starring Brad Pitt finally herald the end of this craze? A veritable death of the undead? I’m not sure, but I know one thing: I’m going to see it.
There are a million and one zombie t-shirts out there – and a lot look very amateurish and corny. But these make me laugh, and are very well done:
“Lawn of the Dead” at Threadless:
“Zombie Protest” at ThinkGeek:
“Throwing Shapes, Eating Brains” at Threadless (Thriller inspired, for all you children of the 80s):
Does the Zombie genre still have legs, (pun intended) or like the fifth season of Happy Days, has it also jumped the Shark?

Considering we just went through a Presidential election, I was inspired to start looking for presidential t-shirts. Not campaign shirts, per se, but rather designs where people used images of past presidents in creative ways. Overwhelmingly, there was one that kept coming up: Lincoln. (the search results for “Millard Filmore t-shirts” weren’t too impressive, BTW.)
Why are people still so enamored by Lincoln almost 150 years after his death? Sure, he saved the Union and ended slavery, but there is something about him that just makes him so cool. He had a look, an attitude, a certain je ne sais quoi, that really can’t be matched by any other president. Washington had his wig, Taft was tubby, and Kennedy cool – but Lincoln – he was just an all-around bad ass.

ZOMBAMA'S REVENGE - obama zombie t-shirt
Obama Zombie – So, takeoffs on the original Obama “HOPE” posters are everwhere. This has to be about the coolest parody I’ve seen though. When asked what the political statement here was, Jared responed, “I’m trying to say is that I have fun with ridiculous parodies of self-important ‘street artists.’ That’s all.” buy it
