George Romero, age 77.

Bad news is George Romero died. Good news is he probably won't stay dead for long.
I used to know somebody that played one of the zombies in Dawn of the Dead, when it was filmed in Pittsburgh.

Dan has been dead for over ten years now - like Mr. Romero, he died of lung cancer - smoking was just something that people did back then.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Romero, though if ever there was someone that deserved to reawaken as one of the ravenous undead, it is you - you have left a legacy.

A great one has passed. Martin Landau (aka Rollin Hand of Mission: Impossible) has passed at the age of 89.

RIP Mr. Landau ... I'm lighting a candle tonight.

Nosferatu: The Non-Silent Movie

Nosferatu, the 1922 Silent Film, now has a complete audio track thanks to a remarkable Getty Images campaign by ad agency AlmapBBDO.

For its client Getty Images, the Brazilian agency has spent the last few years making in-depth, academic use of the company’s massive assets. While previous campaigns have used its stock of images in creative ways to emphasize the range of material available, this year’s campaign gives the approach a whole new spin, focusing on its audio library, a side of Getty Images many haven’t explored or even know about.

The brand has a massive stock of music and sound effects for sale. To bring it to life, AlmapBBDO has taken the 1922 classic silent film Nosferatu and created an entire soundtrack for it in a campaign called “Not Silent Film” that took thousands of man hours to compose over a span of 3 months. The iconic vampire even gets his own language and voice. (Dusty and horrifying, not unlike unearthing a cursed Pharaonic tomb while your mentor plunders all the glinting—and obviously evil—booty for “science.”)

Users can watch the full one-and-a-half-hour remake at NonSilentFilm.com. It’s cheesy in places, but then again, so was the original.

Also, Blizzard? A new FPS that's not Overwatch?

To be fair, we don't know what precisely it is.  All we know is that there is an "unannounced first person project" that has some job postings.

It could be an expansion to Overwatch, a sequel to Overwatch, a completely new IP (highly unlikely), or a first person take of one of the other franchises.

My hope?  FPS StarCraft.  They've essentially "finished" 2, and the OG re-master is a good way to keep hype on the license.  Then when people are interested again, boom, see the universe up close and personal.  Hopefully using what they learned making Overwatch to make the gameplay awesome.  And they can fix that *%&$ing Gauss Rifle design while they are at it, hopefully by seeing via having to animate reloading the thing that the stupid magazine is blocked by the trigger guard!  AGH!  *Ahem* Sorry, still is a bit of a thorn in my side.
