The Zombie Chronicles

Below are 8 videos (which I actually embedded as a playlist from YouTube) that I took in my shed while Tom Woodward and I were preparing our “live interview” for Jared Stein and Marc Hugentobler’s “Late Night Learning Live” presentation, which you can see here in its entirety.

I made 8 separate two or three minute videos that night along with Tom, who was doing the same thing from his own shed in Slocum, Alabama. That evening was a lot of fun, and the first real use I’ve gotten out of my man shed. I don’t think I laughed that much in a while, but at the same time I actually got pretty upset at times in these videos thinking about some of the implications of the zombification of education—so often I was less than comic and something closer to pathetic. Each video answers a prepared question that Tom read out through my computer, and often his reading of the questions is the funniest thing about the video. Moreover, Tom’s videos are both shorter and much funnier than mine, and they make a good complement to these cause he is answering the same exact questions.

I put mine here for posterity as just another installation in the ongoing zombie chronicles on the bava, and while zombies run their life cycle (you like that? I thought it up myself) I’ll now turn my attention to a masked crusader who wants to clean up the filth lined campuses of higher education.

    What kind of zombie are you, Reverend?

    I am watching the first video and find myself seriously distracted by the possibility of that cigarette burning the hell out of your bottom lip.

    Would the Bava feel it? Would he care?

    I also think you should be holding Bryan Alexander’s axe during this.

    I also love the various and often fluctuating accents. I’m waiting for the “Jim Groom talks like a Boston Red Sox fan” video series. (giggle)

    This is great stuff, Jim! Tom’s mic cutting out, the Carl Spackler inspired wardrobe….striking!

    And I love the concept of an edupunk woodshed…..where’s your shotgun, bandoleer, machete and shovel?

    Barbara, re: the cigarette: a zombie wouldn’t know…but a Cyborg wouldn’t care!!

  6. Careful with the axe.
    CAREFUL where you put it.

    Too bad I had to delete some of that video for propriety’s sake. It was some funny stuff. I’ll have to post my videos as soon as I remember where I put them.
