Zombie Yoga?
Today’s Boing Boing tv episode:

The invite said “Bring a Yoga Mat – Dress Like a Zombie.” When filmmaker and Boing Boing pal Jason Wishnow set out to create a trailer for Scott Kenemore’s new book “The Zen of Zombie : Better Living Through the Undead” (yes, people make video trailers for books!) a vision came to his brrraiiiiinns. Why not gather 100 people in a Brooklyn park, dress them as zombies, and film them all doing yoga? There’s no inner peace like undead inner peace.

So today on Boing Boing tv, in honor of Halloween, we’ve produced a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Jason’s Zombie Yoga trailer (we’ll share his actual trailer tomorrow!). Oh, and — watch out for flying guts when they do “downward decapitated dog” or “corpse pose.” (Music by T.bias.)

Link to video. Happy Halloween from Boing Boing! Zombies are forever.

Dan says: “Here is a great story I found about Arnold Schwarzenegger telling a British journalist that marijuana is not a drug. He was trying to deflect suggestions that he had used drugs in the past by saying weed is ‘not a drug. It’s a leaf.” Then the PR machine began, predictably, to crank into full gear.”

Aaron McLear, Schwarzenegger’s press secretary, said the governor made the comments in a lighthearted context, noting his interviewer was Piers Morgan, one of the judges on “America’s Got Talent.” Morgan is a former British newspaper editor.

“The governor was doing an interview with the host of ‘America’s Got Talent,’ the newest version of the gong show,” McLear said. “I think it’s important to keep that quote in the context of the environment where it was said.”
