‘Fun and Fantasy with Robot’ is apparently the English motto of RobotLand in South Korea.  

The Escapist informs me that building giant robot statues is all the rage in that part of the world. As well as the new monster in South Korea, there are also robot statues in Tokyo and Kobe.

I know what you’re thinking: ‘What if some nascent skynet is diddling with the plans, causing our far Eastern cousins to unwittingly construct an army of skyscraper sized death machines?’

I’m afraid. I’m very afraid.

PSSSSSST!

Don’t tell anyone else, but we’ve finished our album. The artwork isn’t ready, but the music is.

There’s a zip file in the fans’ area. It’s a big file, but these are new remastered versions of our songs, most of them significantly different to the versions you can find elsewhere on the site.

…it doesn’t seem like a stretch to see this bad boy crush his patients in half! Is this how the robot uprising will begin?

Via a post on the blog A Modern Girl’s Guide to the Apocalypse, I learn of the Zombie Emergency Kit.

This, of course, is a vital accessory and I shall be purchasing several to be placed strategically around my flat, and place of work. I agree absolutely with Miss Famine’s sentiment:

We all know about fire safety, and earthquake kits to store in your car, and bunkers for BOTH tornadoes and nuclear fall out. But now it’s time to step it up. I’m making it my personal mission to get one or more of these Zombie Emergency Kits installed in every home and public building.

Zombies are dear to both my heart and Pete’s, and while we sing of dancing with them, we are aware of the dangers. That’s why I shall also be acquiring a Zombie Defense Station, a far more serious bit of kit:

Geekologie tells me that this is the latest in Zombie Defense Equipment.

I certainly wouldn’t deny these wise words:

Seriously folks, you just never know when you might have to go all Resident Evil on a gang of undead humans hellbent on having you for dinner.

There are clearly a great many sensible people out there, preparing and helping others prepare for the coming showdown with the shuffling undead hordes. This brings me some small measure of comfort.

Our Zombie Song – Just Sleeping

As you begin your plans and preparations, I shall leave you with our Zombie song, ‘Just Sleeping’:

Boffins at the Pazzo Institute for End-times Research (PIER) have published new, and startling evidence, as documented here.

PIER has been struggling to understand the complex interrelationship between these seemingly parallel phenomena. Today, finally, we have the answer. No matter where you are on earth, your chance of experiencing a Zombie Uprising plus your chances of experiencing a Robot Uprising is roughly equal to 1 (given a sufficient time horizon, it is a virtual mathematical certainty that you will experience one or the other).

More terrifyingly, they conclude that the point on earth at which you are most likely to suffer both Robot and Zombie attacks, at the same time, is El Paso Texas.

If zombies actually existed, an attack by them would lead to the collapse of civilisation unless dealt with quickly and aggressively.

I actually wrote a song this week, which hardly ever happens. It’s inspired by (ie lifts ideas from) Riddley Walker by Russel Hoban, which is a book about post-apocalyptic Kent. I really enjoyed it, and it put ideas in my head, so here we are.

Veeery rough version, then. A few chords are the wrong way ’round and the ending is a bit all over the place, but the meat and bones are there. It is called Follow Man.

Unbeknownst to Pete, I’ve recorded loads of backing vocals for the Dance at the End of the World.

Not all of them will be used in the final song.

Here are some of them:
