Awesome! Undeadart.org (a division of FreeCulture) is having a contest to remix clips from classic zombie flicks! What an awesome idea! Since the public domain includes the classic Night of the Living Dead, one imagines that you could do a fairly good job of it. They also include a link to the movie Amid the Dead, which I will have to watch when I get home tonight.
Just in time for Halloween!

Ten years ago I had a job interview with SGI, and afterwards went on a first date with Carmen. I didn’t get the job, but I did get to meet a marvelous woman, and in 2000 I made her my wife. Her patience, kindness and humor all work to make me a better man, and I love her more each day.
Happy Anniversary Honey!
