Life feeling a little dull? Routine got you down? Would you rather be chased by zombies?
From The New York Times:
On Wednesday the publishing imprint behind the popular undead comic-book series “The Walking Dead,” which spawned the hit AMC drama of the same title, said it would introduce a new live event, The Walking Dead: Escape, at Petco Park in San Diego this summer. ...Oh, I dunno. Feels kind of like the same old, same old to me.
Organizers of The Walking Dead: Escape said in a news release that it was “unlike any obstacle course event” in the United States, allowing participants to play “a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone; a Walker who becomes one of the undead, embracing the inevitable; or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party.” ...
Those who take part in the event as Survivors must “climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers,” the release said, adding that it “is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly.”

Busy, busy, busy. Crazy deadlines at the magazine the next few weeks, so expect even fewer posts than usual.
Other things on the horizon:
Thanks to a friend from college who's an editor at the North American Review, a short piece of commentary I wrote will close out the summer issue of "America's oldest literary magazine."
Previously, the NAR has run work by Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Edith Wharton, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Edison, John Steinbeck, Kurt Vonnegut, and Margaret Atwood. In related news, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Edith Wharton, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Edison, John Steinbeck, Kurt Vonnegut, and Margaret Atwood were recently observed spinning in their graves.
Which is odd about Margaret Atwood, as she's not dead.
I'm also about three-quarters through writing a rough draft of a piece dissecting After Last Season. God (or some lesser luminary) willing, it will appear in issue #17 of Cashiers du Cinemart at some point during the summer.
Details to follow, as they become known...
