Brain Dead Zombies with Burgers and Fries?

Floggin' a dead horse there Mark?-)
Watch the Wahl-let?
You can bet that timing is everything when it comes to life I reckon.
I'm not really into zombies much anymore, but as readers who have been following my blog for the last couple of months would know, I've been reading Nancy Pearl's 'Book Lust' -
"Booooks ... boooooks ... booooooooks"
And the weekend that I read the news stories about a Brisbane burger joint handing out free lamb's brains zombie burgers for a season 10 of 'The Walking Dead' promotion with BINGE streaming service, was the weekend I read page 217 of 'Book Lust' where Nancy mentions a book I've had sitting on my bookshelf unread for years ('I Am Legend') which she says inspired 'Night of the Living Dead' and its sequels being made.
No doubt that all inspired the makers of 'The Walking Dead' too?
I've never watched one episode of 'The Walking Dead' yet, and I don't plan on watching one either.
But reading page 217 in 'Book Lust' made me blow the dust off my copy of 'I Am Legend' and promise myself that I will read it next.
I was also inspired to binge watch all of season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' on BINGE that weekend, which was the original reason I had subscribed to the streaming service in the first place, so that I could finally watch the season I had been put off watching from all of the negative fan reviews of that season.
And you know what?
I was happy with the ending, to be honest.
Kind of reminds me of another Netflix series that I like to watch;-)
Netflix Will Have Enough Material Now for 'The Crown' Until Kingdom Come?
I thought all those characters in that show got what was coming to 'em in the end anyhow.
Conspiracy: Be Careful What You Fish For?
Still in perfect condition, so far:-)
That 'I Am Legend' creature reminds me of something;-) 
Stephen King even wrote an afterword in this edition of 'I Am Legend'
Page 217 of 'Book Lust'
Room 217?
I am ... not into lamb's brains on a bun, so I hope when Mark Wahlberg opens his burger chain in Brisbane later this year that he has something more appetizing to offer us BINGE watching zombies.
Burgers, Missing Loved Ones, Holidays, Movies ... and Would You Like Minimum Fries or Hot Chips with That?
And on the subject of brains, Andrew Lincoln from 'The Walking Dead' plays Cameron Bloom in the movie 'Penguin Bloom' -


  1. Interesting parallels between the zombie virus outbreak of ‘I Am Legend’ and Covid...especially in reference to the masked mumbled zombies of the ‘rona.

    And then season 8 of GoT where the Zombies...well I won’t spoil it for you.

  2. I've seen the Will Smith movie version of the book, I just haven't read the book yet.
    I see at the IMDB movie site that another movie version is slated to be made of 'I Am Legend' soon.
    I only ever watched GoT because my fellow Sharkie supporter Brendan Cowell had a bit part in season 7 of the show.
    So I watched the whole lot just to see him fight a guy with no nuts at the beach ... and he gets his ass kicked by said nutless guy.
    It was just like watching the many seasons of Sharkie games where we snatched defeat from the JAWS of victory :-)
    Apparently Brendan is wrapping up filming 'Avatar 2' in NZ.
    He better not get his ass kicked by a blue fairy or some such humiliation when I go see that movie at the cinema ;-)

    1. That is bloody hilarious. Let the record show that a Sharks fan got his ass handed to him by a castrate.

      The first Avatar was fantastic... looking forward to the second one, what’s the inside scoop Dazzle?

    2. Avatar just took back its mantle as the highest grossing film I see, because Disney just ran it again in China the last few weeks and made millions more from the movie.

  3. I laugh when I see Mark Wahlberg ride in on that Bronco bike in the Ladbroke advert.
    I hope he has some money on the Brisbane Broncos going back to back wooden spoons in 2021 ;-)
    Ca -ching $$$

    1. Yeah I saw that the other day, I thought it was a clone but his ‘acting’ convinced me that was Donny Wahlberg’s brother. Broncos for the spoon, let’s make it happen.

    2. We don't have to do a thing, those clowns will draw it towards them all by themselves :-)
