What will they think of next?
“Deadspiel” has just won the Toronto Zombie Short Film Festival. That’s right: a Zombie curling movie has just won an award. You can visit their web site to see a very short (what it lacks in length, it makes up for in humor!) trailer for the film, and visit YouTube to see a little behind the scenes look at the movie. We’ll have to begin to see what we need to do to get this movie shown in Kalamazoo during the US Nationals.
[UPDATE] “Deadspiel” will be showing tonight (Tuesday, November 3, 2009) as part of the Mitten Movie Project in Royal Oak, Michigan. Tickets are $10, and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
Just in time for all the hoopla about curling — Kalamazoo Curling Club leagues, the Winter Olympics, the US National Curling Championships — add a little bit more curling to the cultural mix… courtesy of The Simpsons.
In an episode scheduled to run in February, Homer and Marge will be forming a mixed curling team along with Homer’s mom and Principal Skinner. I think we have to wait until February to find out who’s skipping… but there is more to learn about the episode at CBC Sports website.
