Zombies Everywhere?

The bookmark that came with the book

I finally got around to seeing Warm Bodies yesterday at the cinema, after I had written about wanting to see it in this post -
Do All These Zombies Seem to Have a Common Purpose?
Yikes!!! I would have been in the cinema at 2:37;-)

Love that KII on my cinema ticket;-)
You'll have to watch Steve Wilner and Jake Kotze's clip 
above to get the K2 /K 11 in joke.
Also shown before the movie was a preview to another zombie movie I had referred to a few times as well -
World War (O)Z?
Stats from The Book Depository
Zombies are big business at the moment, as I found out from the bookmark that was included in my  book
What Should I Do with My Life? from The Book Depository 
(sounds like a place an assassin might work for ... or a patsy;-)
Click on the photo to make it bigger
And so are cakes big business I found when I flipped the bookmark over.
Cake Love
I also found out cakes were big $s in a chapter from  
What Should I Do with My Life?
about the guy who started the Cakelove chain.
I guess if it wasn't for Zombie culture though, I never would have become friends with my blogging pal King Uke -
Tokyo Zombie is Hurting my Brain
I liked, but didn't love Warm Bodies.
It hit a lot of the right notes to appeal to mass audiences and at the same time mirror back in exaggerated form just how lost modern civilization is.
It's more of a Rom/Com (or Zom/Rom/Com;-) than a horror movie, although there probably is enough action and romance to please both sexes at once.

Teresa Palmer

Which brings me to another rabbit hole of sync - Teresa Palmer.
As I was watching this movie I kept thinking who is this hot young actress who looks vaguely familiar?
Then it struck me that she looked like an actress from a little Aussie movie made a while back titled 2:37 ... and sure enough she was.

237 and the Zebra

"Adelaide born actress and model Teresa Palmer has gathered some impressive film credits. Teresa completed high school at Mercedes College in 2003, where she was a popular student who was well-known for her practical jokes. 
She worked in a Cotton On outlet in Rundle Mall until she was discovered and cast on the spot".
And she is a longtime fan of the Port Adelaide Football Club.
She'll love this post that I wrote a while back then -
 Art by Adelaide
Which kind of adds weight (pardon the pun) to my post about Adelaide and genes.
Would Teresa Palmer have been in all those movies listed on her IMDB page if she looked like Miss Port Adelaide above?
And to be fair, would her co-star in Warm Bodies have gotten the part if he looked like me?
I'd like to think so;-)
God may not play dice, but does deal out cards in a rather unfair fashion it would seem;-)
And I find it rather an ironic sync that Teresa Palmer  will soon star in an advertising campaign for Australian clothing chain
Just Jeans,
since I made that Just Genes t-shirt design before she was even discovered.
 I also like how Teresa played '#6' in I am Number 4.
Number Six: Where am I?
Number Two: In the Village.
Number Six: What do you want?
Number Two: Information.
Number Six: Whose side are you on?
Number Two: That would be telling. We want information… information… in formation.
Number Six: You won't get it.
Number Two: By hook or by crook, we will.
Number Six: Who are you?
Number Two: The new Number Two.
Number Six: Who is Number One?
Number Two: You are Number Six.
Number Six: I am not a number! I am a free man!
Number Two: [laughs]

 A sync also that I had used Robert Palmer's song above in the
Noe Sendas post since most of this post has turned into a post about Teresa Palmer.
 So, in Hollywood it pays to be -


  1. Why is it that when I come here, I immediately fall down the rabbit's hole? The first comment didn't let me finish my sentence!

  2. Hmmmm! Re: "God may not play dice,but does deal out cards in a rather unfair fashion it would seem" - very applicable to your next post regarding Richard Swanson.
