Merry Christmas! This holiday is all about dying and coming back to life ... enjoy it!

So, I guess if you are sitting at home tomorrow night and are completely bored, and all your TV channels are out (except one) and your iPad has run down and your dog has wandered off, you might want to watch this.

Or, you could perhaps spend your time much more wisely and read this instead. Seriously, the Discovery Channel has become one of the slackest things on TV. They once hosted a "documentary" about vampires vs. werewolves that was, of course, tied to the release of one of those Underworld movies. Sad.

I think the same company owns Discovery Channel, what used to be called The Learning Channel and History Channel, all of which mostly air junk, especially now that History seems to have run out of things to say about World War II.

This little cartoon says it best, I think. Anyway, don't watch zombie crap on TV. Read about zombies instead, particularly sexy ones such as featured in "Mama Lona's Man!"

This study is shocking, shocking, I say.

Basically, James Bond movies have gotten more violent over time, although it's not quite as linear as you might think, and apparently Pierce Brosnan was the most violent of all.

I remember the earlier movies as being travelogues to exotic places as much as they were about action, maybe more so. Jamaica had a starring role in "Dr. No," and I have been to Udaipur, India, the setting for "Octopussy," and if you go to the right bar they play the movie every night.

So why I am rattling on about James Bond on a zombie romance blog? More about that in the next post.

Somewhat excited by the season finale of The Walking Dead ... best to get shambling, flesh-eating zombies out of the way before Christmas really kicks in.

Also, wanted to note this book I came across, which I think is similar in tone to "Mama Lona's Man" ...
