Zombie Night at the iO West with PodCRASH! and Comic Book Live
On February 23rd, we returned to the iOWest to invade Hollywood along side some zombies. Chris Gore hosted a live PodCRASH! and the night’s topic was zombies and anything and everything that had to do with them. Gizzy B was among the participants on the PodCRASH zombie panel and all the panelists were competing with each other on who will survive and who will get “killed off”… just like in the movies.
The panelists were given their token stereotype movie characters such as “Guy Everyone Hates”, “Hot Chick”, “Coward”, “The Black Guy”, etc. The competition involved answering questions like which zombie movies would you bring to a deserted island or who is your favorite character from The Walking Dead. Gore, in his Ash from the Evil Dead cosplay, also had the participants perform their best zombie walk across the stage.
At one point, Chris pulled me up on stage to participate after I yelled out “lightsaber!” as my weapon of choice in a the apocalypse. I was given the character: “The White Girl” — it’s fitting, right? I survived a couple of rounds of questions and answers before the crowd voted me off the stage. Gizzy B was in the finalists but sadly, she too was voted off.
The price was a DVD copy of Zombie Christ, by the way.
Gizzy B also provided a Walking Dead fanfic for Fanfic Theater. The fanfic was hinted towards a Daryl and Glenn manlove story through a game of Truth or Dare initiated by Rick for ‘team building’ activities.
Later in the night, Comic Book Live had a Walking Dead improv show and made up their own season finale episode for the show. A lot of fun silliness ensued on the stage — watch out for the videos to go up on the PodCRASH youtube channel!
