I think Stuff is over…

February 4, 2010

Sorry guys, I think I owe you an explanation.

I am no longer writing for Stuff. I’m going to do my own thing and hopefully it survives longer than Stuff did. The other writers stopped showing up back in October, so it was just me for the last few months. Then I got lazy around the holidays and slacked off too.

No need to worry! The Angry Building is up and running! Expect the same type of content, and hopefully no drop offs…

So long Stuff…It’s been a fun ride.

Shel Dorf, R.I.P.

For those that don’t know, Shel Dorf founded Comic-Con. He was the brains behind it all. Mr. Dorf, pictured to the left looking classy, passed away November 4, 2009. He was 76 years old, and was undergoing treatments for diabetes through the past year.

Zombies invade Monroeville Mall

October 25, 2009

Whoa whoa whoa..Calm down, put the shotgun away. Zombies didn’t really invade a mall, at least not real zombies. On October 11th a group of 2,000 people dressed as zombies and “invaded” Monroeville Mall.

This hoard of the undead shambled through the mall George A. Romero used for his zombie tale Dawn of the Dead. For other zombie fans, that mall is not just a shopping center, but a cultural icon.

The Wall Street Journal has a write up of the event along with a great gallery of images from the invasion.
