Now Casting for Reality Show Naked and Afraid

All those who are glutten for punishment, (or for fun..depending how you look at it), there is a casting call for the Discovery Channel show “Naked and Afraid” by Metal Flowers Media.

You can fill out the app here.

One man and one woman must survive together – naked and afraid – for 21 days. That’s the very non-helpful description of what the show is about. Apparently there have been a few other seasons for it.

If you would like to read more/see more about it, go here and read all about it.

Atlanta becomes the Walking Dead

Think this is fantastic. Couldn’t find who decided to compare the two images together, but it matches. Still can’t believe the clusterfluff that happened down there in Georgia over a bit of snow.

Only a little more than a week until “Walking Dead” starts again!

Only YOU can prevent the Zombie Apocalypse

Only You Can Prevent the Zombie ApocalypseWe live in dangerous times. There are all sorts of dangers – biological, chemical, social. If one stupid human makes one stupid mistake, we could have the apocalypse on our hands in mere days. If you miss the signs, if you have your head in the sand, if you just can’t bring yourself to shoot Grandma when she’s clearly infected with the virus, then YOU have caused the modern day forest fire that is the zombie apocalypse. Be prepared, zombie watchers. The time will come and you will be responsible for saving or damning the world.

Apocalypse Snow Globe

Normally $12.99, but appears to be currently out of stock. I think this would be a really fun gift for any friends/family that likes odd collectibles, especially apocalypse related.

Apocalypse Snow Globe Apocalypse Snow Globe

At one time, the city in this snowglobe was bustling with tiny people. The elevators in its skyscrapers were always moving. It was mixed zoning, so some came to it to work and some came to it to live. Restaurants. Taxi cabs. You could see lights winking on and off in the buildings, even late at night, as residents went to sleep and janitors finished the next floor. There were tiny cars honking at each other. Today you can’t even see the roads. How did it come to this? We don’t know exactly how it started. But we know about the bacteria. You see, there were colonies of bacteria in the water, and they ate away at the buildings. Not slowly like a latent disease, but quickly. They were overrun, corners crumbling, edifices crashing to the street. The businesses closed shop. An emergency was declared. The residents went to stay with friends or family, thinking they could come back later to get their things. But it was already too late. The only way to kill the bacteria was to irradiate the city. So now there’s perpetually a mini-nuclear winter over it, clouding the sky and blocking out the light. In 500 years people will find this place and wonder what happened. But for now, you are its keeper. Hold it in your memory. Place it on your desk. Even though everything it once was has been destroyed, keep it safe.

Miranda Castle aka Château Miranda – Life after People Ruins


(From Wikipedia) Miranda Castle (FrenchChâteau Miranda), also known as Noisy Castle (FrenchChâteau de Noisy) is a 19th-century castle in Cellesprovince of NamurBelgium, in the region of theArdennes.

The castle was built in 1866 by the English architect Milner under commission from the Liedekerke-Beaufort family, who had left their previous home, Vêves Castle, during the French Revolution.

Their descendants remained in occupation until World War II, when it was taken over by the National Railway Company of Belgium (NMBS) as an orphanage. It remained a facility for the use of children until 1980.

It has stood empty since 1991. Although the municipality of Celles has offered to take it over, the family has refused, and the enormous building is now (as of 2011) in a derelict state. It has become a favourite venue of urban explorers. (end wiki)

There is also a petition on to save it as it is scheduled for full demolition. You can find the petition here.

The farm was transformed into a castle by the architect Edward Milner and the French architect Pelchner. The central tower was constructed between 1903 and 1907 and became the summer family residence of Liedekerke Beaufort. After the Second World War the castle became a holiday center and according to some accounts boarding. In 1950 it became a holiday center for children of employees of the SNCB (National Company of Railways of Belgium) Some former residents were very excited to stay at their home Noisy while others have kept terrible memories in the words of their testimony.
