A Very Haunted Weekend

Well friends, the Witching Hour is officially upon us!  All Hallows Eve is only days away!


As I think most of you know, I’ve basically been celebrating Halloween for two straight months now.  This weekend, however, I got to kick things up a notch or two with my closest and dearest friends. It began with a Girls’ Night on Friday.

We drank some wine,

Watched the single greatest Halloween movie of all time,

And carved pumpkins!


I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty proud of my Phoenix.

Before the night ended, my friends told me that they had an idea.  I have to admit, they are pretty spectacular.  I think I’ll keep them around.

The next night, I went with another of my best friends to Fort Worth for a Ghost Bus Tour.  Talk about a Halloween dream come true!

There was also wine.  It was basically perfect.

But absolutely nothing beats a visit to an old cabin village… Or possibly capturing a few unexplained light anomalies on camera.

To top it all off, I may have stumbled across a website that allows you to Halloween-ify yourself.

So yeah, that was my weekend.  How was yours?

Very Short Story at 3 AM

It’s late and I need to be asleep, but while I was browsing GoodReads instead of getting ready for bed, I noticed something.  There are a lot of zombie books out there.  The ones I’ve read are written in first person perspective and it really got me thinking.  What would life actually be like in the event of a zombie apocalypse?  What would I be like?  

It took about half a second to realize exactly what my experience in the zombie apocalypse would be, so I thought I’d write it down before I lost it.  


My Experience in the Zombie Apocalypse

Mruuuuughhhhhhhrrrrrrggghrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr grhhhhuuhhu uuuuhrrhrhrhrhgggghhhmmm hhhhhhmmmmmggggggrhrrrrrrrrr.

Translation: I’m a zombie. 

Mrruhghhghgggghhhhhh mmmmmrrrrrrgggghghgrrgr ggggrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhuuuhghr ghmruhgmrghg.  Ngummmrnnrggkkkmmm hurrmrnkrhng.  

Translation: Walking is hard. I’m dead.

Uuuuuurrrrrrrrhgghghghgmrmmmrr mrgghughrmgmgughrrrrr mmgguuuuuughrrrr mmgmmughrhrughhhhhhh mgurhhughrmmgughg ggughgmmrrrughghgmr mggmmmrruuuuuuugh.

 Translation: I’m going to eat you.

Uurrhrnnnnnnnnrhgggukkk.  Mmmmmghghghurrrrrkrnrhghgm nrurhrhrmmmmmmgggggghh huuuuhrhrrmrmrmngngggghk.

Translation: Yum. People are delicious. 


Translation: Since I am a little more than an animate, ravenous, decaying corpse, I actually do not possess the ability to form coherent thoughts or make rational decisions, or any decisions at all.  I am purely an instinct-driven, mindless body.  I don’t even know what a body is.  I only know that humans are tasty and I must eat them.  I’m not sure why though, because I’m already dead, so what?  Will I die again if I don’t consume living humans?  

Nnnnnrrrrmmkkkkhrgrrrgrghhrkkrhg mhrrhrkrnmmmmggkkkkkrhhhrrrrrr mrhuhhrmmghrkgmrughm mgurhrkkrhrhhrhrmurrrr.

Translation: Zombie existential crisis. 

Apocalypse Graduation

Hello again, all.

I just found out that a friend of mine (and fellow author and blogger), Toni, is producing a short film!  You can check out her blog here: http://tjwiltshire.wordpress.com

Anyway, this a film that she is producing with her friends and fellow University students and they are planning to submit it to various film festivals and host a live screening.  It’s called Apocalypse Graduation and it’s about my favorite monsters (or the monsters that scare me the most)… ZOMBIES!

Here is the link to their KickStarter page.  Even if you can’t donate, please share the video and help out your fellow author, artist, scriptwriter, and filmmaker.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tjwiltshire/apocalypse-graduation-a-short-film

If the link, for whatever reason, isn’t working, here’s a the information that you’ll find on the page.

“Apocalypse Graduation is the story of two University students who are ambushed while studying in the library.

Apocalypse Graduation is a short film created by Matthew Tse (Director) and Toni Wiltshire (Producer/Scriptwriter). We have a first draft of our script finished, and can’t wait to get started on production!

Together, we are putting together a cast and crew of fellow students and intend to submit our final film to several film festivals.

Our film has a unique edge on most other zombie films: it’s packed with sarcasm, humour, relatable characters and NO ROMANCE. So many films – not just those with zombies – have the underlying (or even prominent) theme of romance, and we wanted to make a film without any of that. It’s just two friends who are trying not to get killed.

Apocalypse Graduation is the story of James Kirk and Clara Jenkins, who are ambushed by zombies while studying at the University library. They have to fight their way out and then survive their new zombie infested world. They have been friends since the start of University, having met at a gaming society. The only slight problem with them being apocalypse partners is the small issue of procreation – Clara is gay, and James can’t see Clara as anything more than a friend – even when faced with the threat of extinction.

As well as aiming to submit our films to several film festivals, we’re also hoping to have a screening in Lincoln (MORE DETAILS TO COME).

We have our script, but we need your help to get our film made! We want to create it to a professional standard, making it a debut film to be proud of.


We are Media Production students at the University of Lincoln, UK, and we are beyond excited to create this professional short film.

Matthew Tse has been studying Media Production for almost three years, and has worked on several short films as part of his college course, but would like to expand and make his own project outside of education. He has also been commissioned to create videos to advertise martial arts groups and was a camera operator for a documentary video about the Olympic torch passing through Peterborough.

Toni Wiltshire comes from an English, Psychology and Sociology background, and is currently going through the motions of self-publishing her first book. Toni’s interest in media lies in script writing and producing, so this opportunity to do both is an exciting prospect for her awesome organisation skills and budding writing abilities.

The two have been hypothesising about this film since November 2013, both wanting to make a zombie film that was both kick ass and realistic.

We intend to shoot the film in March/April 2014, and have post-production finished by May so that we can distribute by June 2014. If there are any delays, you guys will be the first to know!

Likely delays could be caused by the zombie apocalypse not actually happening, Toni killing Matt, or an increase in University work. We will try and make these issues as avoidable as possible, but if something is thrown into the works and causes a delay, we will of course let you know here!

We can’t wait to get started on this film and be able to share the finished product with you guys!

Please remember no donation is too small, anything and everything is greatly appreciated and you’ll be the cause of us feeling warm and happy inside.”

Thank you all!
