HBO‘s “True Blood” began it’s 5th season last night. They have a lot of great original programing, but “True Blood” is the only one of their shows that I really go out of my way to watch every week anymore. Don’t get me wrong, if I’m just flipping through the channels and one of the other series is on, I usually stop and watch.

As much as I like the show, its vampires (and all the other recent incarnations) can’t hold a candle to the blood suckers in “The Lost Boys.” I was only 10 when it came out, and when I finally saw it, it scared the crap out of me! I didn’t want to eat Chinese food for weeks.

I think this t shirt from Electric Zombie might have had the same effect back then.

The classic “Keep Calm” graphic has gone through many reincarnations since it re-emerged around 2000, copyright expired. The original is beautiful, and there are very few parodies that do the design any justice. My love of zombie fiction draws me towards this design, available at Split Reason.
