Links: Halloween-Leftovers


Hier noch der komplette blutige Kram, der mir seit gestern durch den Feedreader gerutscht ist, danach hab’ ich erstmal die Schnauze voll von Horror und Gore und brauch’ dann erstmal etwas komplett anderes – Gardening und Politik erscheinen mir sehr passend. Curse of the Werewolf-Poster oben von Golden Ages großartigem Halloween-Posting.

Zuerstmal: Sascha von Pewpewpew hat unseren World-War-Z-Podcast gepostet, in dem ich zu Gast bin und am Buch kein einziges gutes Haar lasse, dafür mag ich aber den Film ganz gerne.

Das großartige Death Waltz-Label hatte zu Halloween gleich zwei Soundtrack-Mixe rausgehauen. Oben der erste (hier auf Soundcloud), den zweiten haben sie für’s FACT-Mag aufgenommen. Viele der Tracks darin hatte ich auch in meinem Halloween-Mix gespielt.

Gestern hab’s auch mindestens zwei größere Horrorfilm-News: Die wollen ein Remake von Pet Sematary an den Start bringen mit Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks later) als Regisseur. Hat Potential, finde ich. Das Buch war schick, der Film solala und da geht in der Bewegtbildinterpretation des Stoffes noch einiges. Außerdem wird Dario Argentos Suspiria restauriert mit Schnickschnack auf Bluray erscheinen.

The Geography of Horror: „Where’s the scariest place in the world? See where more than 200 of the top-rated horror films of all-time took place. Data and images courtesy of Wikimedia Commons and IMDB.“

United States Devil Map: „Having my cartographic curiosity piqued early in summer in the midst of heavy projects, I wondered how many geographic “devils” and accompanying “hells” we have across the country. Having no source for a comprehensive list, I’m sure I’ll be told how many have been left out, but I did manage to find a few, finding large gaps across the plains and midwest… thinking it’s the more interesting landscape of the mountains and coasts the generally get the infernal titles.“

XKCDs What If? rechnet aus, wie lange es dauert, bis es mehr Facebook-Profile von toten als von lebenden Menschen gibt: „Based on the site’s growth rate, and the age breakdown of their users over time,[2] there are probably 10 to 20 million people who created Facebook profiles who have since died.[…] About 290,000 US Facebook users will die (or have died) in 2013. The worldwide total for 2013 is likely several million.[3] In just seven years, this death rate will double, and in seven more years it will double again. Even if Facebook closes registration tomorrow, the number of deaths per year will continue to grow for many decades, as the generation who was in college between 2000 and 2020 grows old.“

Zombies in the Kindle Store:

On Halloween night in 2011, there were 2,269 different Kindle ebooks with their word “zombie” in their title. But by 2012, that number had more than doubled, with 4,874 zombie ebooks there were now available on the Kindle. And this year? OMG! Amazon’s Kindle store now has 8,052 zombie ebooks!

I’ve joked about the “rising zombie ebook invasion,” but the numbers really do show an unmistakeable trend. One Halloween, I noticed that one of the top 100 free ebooks in the Kindle Store was something called Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb. But the real message may be that each Halloween, there’s more and more self-published authors who are writing zombie fiction. Even the Library of Congress only has 674 books with the word “zombie” in their title (up from 523 in 2011 and 601 in 2012). Oh my god, run everybody — Amazon’s Kindle store now has nearly 12 times as many zombies!
