Posted by & filed under Media, News.

Focusing on the finer things of life, Tatler is a magazine that has been showcasing glamour and high society since 1901. SO WHY THE FLIP ARE WE IN THERE!?! No, we’re not part of Cressida’s Crew (though a boy can dream). The magnificent Emma Kennedy aka @EmmaK67 visited our fabulous Zombie Shopping Mall in Reading. And it sounds like she quite enjoyed it: Try and imagine the most fun you have ever had, times it by 10, add a trillion – and, even then, it doesn’t come close to the awesomeness of this amazing day out.” That’s pretty positive, thank you Emma K! Read her review in an online capacity RIGHT HERE And get yourself to Zombie Shopping Mall UP IN HERE And if anyone from Horse & Hound, Yachts International and The Robb Report fancy having a go, drop us a line. We’re getting all fancy!

Zombies on Big Brother with Rob Hall

Posted by & filed under Media, News.

Our favourite professional zombie Mr. Rob Hall aka @CaptainKindling recently made a very special appearance at the Big Brother house! Much like the Charlie Brooker penned mini-series Dead Set, zombies descended on the housemates to provide a rude, and scary, awakening. And it couldn’t come at more apt time as it’s exactly a year since Rob vanquished the competition and reigned supreme at our Zombie Auditions extravaganza. Rob told us: “It was a fairly out of the blue experience! I didn’t know what the job was until I got there, and couldn’t talk about it until the air date… “I’d have to say it’s closely tied with the GiffGaff advert as the biggest achievement of my undead career so far! And the fact that it’s pretty much a year to the day since the auditions makes it a nice way to mark how much and how bizzarrely (in a good way) my life’s changed in the last 12 months.” Read all about the Big Brother Zombie Invasion RIGHT HERE and take a look behind the scenes OVER HERE.

The Wonderful World of Twitter #JournoRequest

Posted by & filed under Media.

Twitter can be used for many wondrous things: veiled threats, overt threats, passive-aggressive threats… But it also an excellent tool for those looking for journalists’ and the like, who try to find unsuspecting rubes to illustrate their article on ‘Why I Smell and I’m Proud Of It’ on the social media network using the #journorequest hashtag. But amongst the desperate, deadline-compromising pleas are some excellent spoofs, pastiches and giggleblips, as well as legitimate ones that are too abstract to be believed. The excitable @Brainmage hurts all of our minds with this superb combination of astro-surrealism and the magically mundane: Can anyone help find an early 20th Century Bellhop who travelled through time in order to battle intergalactic mindviruses? #journorequest — Guy (@Brainmage) March 6, 2013 Some tell a baffling little story all on their own: #journorequest If said Spam Javelin broke in 2 mid-flight, all the better. After reaction, thoughts, feelings etcs… It’s for a thing — Morgan Colohan (@Morgans_Plinth) March 6, 2013 A few have a vague air of truth about them. I’m sure I saw this show on Channel 4.

Posted by & filed under Media, Video.

Apparently there’s new-fangled thing called the YouTube, which is what everyone does now rather than go to the pictures. It’s all beyond us I’m afraid, I haven’t seen any evidence of it on my Commodore 64.

Did you hear Mr Moyles and his crazy gang of miscreants as they turned their collected razor sharp wit onto our Zombie Auditions during the Radio 1 Breakfast Show?
