Zombie Meat

Here's another one I'm a little late in getting to... A few weeks back, sites like Pink Tentacle and Boing Boing made mention of Zombie Meat - essentially pouches of blue beef jerky currently being sold in Japan.

I love Japan. I love their crazy movies, their crazy fashion, and their crazy neon. And though I no longer eat beef, I love the idea of Zombie Meat.

About 6 weeks ago, I actually saw this stuff for sale in a Tokyu Hands store in Tokyo. I wasn't exactly sure what it was at the time, but I know now. Here's the last picture I took in Japan:

Old news

Okay, so I've been busy. And this blog has been suffering as a result. Let's play catch up real quick & change that.

A couple weeks ago, someone discovered that if you entered "the Konami code" (you know - up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, enter) on the front page of the Newsweek website, headlines and articles detailing a zombie uprising suddenly appeared.

Of course it didn't last long, but I managed to snag a screenshot. So if you missed it, and haven't seen it on any of the thousands of other blogs that covered it, just feast your eyes on this:
