Slap a zombie theme on anything these days and it's almost certain you'll have a breakout hit on your hands before you know it. The gamer nerds at Edmonton-based Fluik Entertainment have done just that with their latest free Office Zombie app which rocketed to number one in the iPhone App Store overnight. The undead app has remained in the Top 20 since it launched on September 21, 2011.
Fluik cleverly reanimated their original chart topping iPhone game Office Jerk, to become a wildly zombified treat that allows players to poke out a zombie's eyeballs by tossing claw hammers, bricks or even beheading the undead desk dweller with three kinds of weapons. Sounds gory right? Not really.
Just because I'm staring off into space doesn't mean that I'm enjoying mental downtime. I'm hard at work here mister. In fact, some of the best creative times for me happen when I examine those empty spaces that exist between all the 'doing'. It's in that silence that sometimes I can hear most clearly.
Dreaming out loud, inspiration and problem solving can happen at a moment's notice. It can even hit you in the shower. For me it often comes while I'm on a morning walk with Domino, my Jack Russel Terrier. I have no trouble putting my mind to bed and getting a good night of sleep. It's all these waking hours that exhaust my brain.
Does everything we create, write, produce out of our passion and pure inspiration have to be for sale? Do we really need to monetize everything we invest ourselves in? Should I monetize my blog? I think not.
Some things are meant to exist without having to put a price on them. Some things should remain forever priceless. Dreaming out loud should remain a free enterprise, something that takes place without boundaries. Do you create work that is priceless? I certainly hope you do.
I must have this ginormous brain candy for my epic collection of cool zombie junk. This jiggly thinking man's candy is bubblegum-flavored and nearly life-size. Mmm... braaains.
Expect to pay $32 dollars US to pre-order your human gummi brains in time for passing out to unsuspecting trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Gluten-free Gummi brains are best served cold to all your undead guests.

For my first Zombie Wagon art opening in Seattle last week, I created a batch of zombie cupcakes as a creepy treat for all my pre-dead guests to enjoy. They were so popular that I decided to post a step-by-step recipe so you can make your own. While these do-it-yourself zombie snacks are ideal for Halloween, you'll find them perfect for an over the hill party or any other gathering of the living dead.
Ben Lee, was determined to have an engagement photo shoot that kept his manliness in tact, so he decided his moment of undying love with Juliana Park, needed a violent zombie attack. Because couples who slay together stay together.
Juliana and Ben are now officially engaged after surviving an afternoon battling the walking dead while sharing a glass of wine in Santa Clarita. Maybe that zombie was just out geocaching.
"Juliana styled it, I staged, shot & edited it," said photographer Amanda Rynda, "It was a super fulfilling & creative day for me thanks to Juliana & Ben and their unique view on love."

This custom made Zombie Wedding Cake Topper adds the perfect amount of horror to finally saying "I Do". Designer Beloverly creates each cake topper to resemble you (as close as humanly possible).
These amazing wedding cake toppers are hand painted and include a unique degree of blood spatter based upon your own desire for more gore. Expect to pay $75 for the "Zombie Chaser Bride" and $50 for the other undead couples just dying to become man and wife.
