Xark began as a group blog in June 2005 but continues today as founder Dan Conover's primary blog-home. Posts by longtime Xark authors Janet Edens and John Sloop may also appear alongside Dan's here from time to time, depending on whatever.
I held off on releasing this in hopes of getting the audio sweetened by May 27, which happens to be International Zombie Day. When that didn't happen, I decided it was time to make a few little fixes and put this baby out!
Look for the polished version -- complete with the documentaries "The Making of 'Brunch of the Living Dead,'" and "The Making of 'The Making of Brunch of the Living Dead,'" on the special DVD director's cut, which should be available to anyone who asks me for one later this summer...
If I'm ever again in a position where I'm supposed to speak to a bunch of newspaper and newspaper website people about new technology and web culture, I'm going to show this video and move on. And when people say stupid stuff, I'm going to give them stones.
For those of you following the soap opera progress of Brunch of the Living Dead, I've been working out some production schedules and roles and I'm planning to go talk to a restaurant owner on Saturday.
There will be three subsets of zombies: porch, focus group, and brunch-only.
I'll need just four zombies for the porch and six for the focus group, but these subsets do not overlap.
However, both porch and focus-group zombies are welcome to appear in the brunch finale. We'll fill that out with "brunch-only" zombies.
Sorry this takes so long to work out -- but we have to do our creative and collaborative work in the margins of our jobs.
