Every zombie kill on The Walking Dead

I don't like Miser's cover of "Zombie"... I don't like the first 80 seconds of Rick walking out of the hospital... and I know they missed more than a few.

But still, this will get you in the mood for tonight's Season 2 premiere!

Every Zombie Kill in "The Walking Dead" from Flavorpill on Vimeo.

UPDATE: Ut-oh... looks like they took the video down! Bastards.

This isn't every kill, but it's a giant-sized recap.

Also: Check out Nerve's Five Things The Walking Dead Needs To Do In Season Two.

I agree with most of their points, although I don't think they "forgot" about Merle as much as they're saving him to turn into a Big Bad -- one who will be familiar to those of us who read the comics. Still, I have to agree with the big points: Keep it moving, keep it creepy (not just gory), and sometimes, you have to have some humor. Daryl and Glenn shared some great lines in Season One... keep it up!

Too Much Moneyball

I'm sure they didn't mean to do this, but this video perfectly sums up the counter-argument to people who say the Yankees spend too much money on players.

"$400 million in ticket sales... $75 million from our cable network... $5 million in Derek Jeter bobbleheads. What are we going to do with all of it?"

"We could keep it?"

That's basically it. Yes, the Yankees spend more on their payroll than other other team. They also make more money than any other team. What do you want the Yankees to do with their money? Do you want the Steinbrenners to put it into their pocket? Or put it into their product?
