Link-O-Rama: Back from the Dead Like Rebecca DeWinter Edition

Links I've starred from my google reader over the past few weeks for your perusial pleasure:

Zombies are the new vampires:
March of the zombie
By Anne Billson. Once confined to geeky horror films, the living dead are lumbering back into mainstream movies - and even a Jane Austen novel. When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth." Hell must be filling up, because that tag line to the 1978 film Dawn of the Dead now seems eerily prescient. Zombies have long been a popular...

Retaliating against Kanye West's book-backlash with a festival of literary CAKES (h/t ben)"

Sunday Sweets: Reading Rocks
.Or to put it in his own words,"Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed. I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book's autograph."That's good, Kanye, since it's a right pain to get a book to even hold a pen, much less autograph itself.Anyhoo, after banging my head against the desk and weeping...

Mr. Darcy Tries to Pick Up a Lady
The cast of The Chaser's War on Everything, a satirical Australian t.v. show will mock, anything, even our Mr. Darcy. This time they ask that eternal question: Do women want a man like Mr. Darcy? In polls women say they do but in real life the resultd are just a bit different (and hysterically funny.) Is there nothing sacred left in this life?

The end. Go read!
