Happy New Year!

Remember the old Prince song, 1999? Are you old enough to remember listening to that and thinking it was SO far away? I am. And now here we are, just a few hours away from 2013.

I've been a little behind on updating my blog in the last few months, thanks mostly to getting a new job that's a little more demanding of my time. Good for me, but the old B'hold Designs laboratory starts to get a little cobwebby, which ticks off the cleaning crew. Sorry about that.

Need plans for tonight? Feel free to come by B'HQ and help clean cobwebs! Or, if that doesn't strike your fancy, beginning at 8 pm (central), AMC is showing the entire first half of season three of their hit show, "The Walking Dead." Miss an episode or two this year? Now is the time to get caught up!

Am I making a resolution? Yes. I'm going to try my best to keep a more clockwork-like update of this blog. I will continue to tirelessly hunt down the official zombie news you can use and post it here for your viewing pleasure. If YOU stumble across something you think is zombie-news worthy, give me a shout! I'll be happy to post it and point to you as the zombie sleuth that tracked down the info, resulting in a multitude of virtual high fives.

As for tonight, be careful. Please don't drink and drive, and especially don't drink and hunt zombies. It's a waste of ammo, and your inebriated neighbor might not appreciate being shot at as he shuffles his way home.

Happy New Year from your four-eyed pals at B'hold Designs!!

The Discovery Channel's "Zombie Apocalypse"

Recently, I told you about a documentary coming up on the Discovery Channel that would look into the possibility of zombies, if we've seen any already, and interviews with four people preparing for such an event.

It aired on Dec. 18th and was an interesting program. If you get a chance to see it's rerun, or find it online I recommend it.

Below are a couple of small clips. Is it really possible? You be the judge...

Those Wacky Ancient Mayans!

Like a gigantic whoopee cushion, or a joy buzzer heard 'round the world, the ancient Mayans really pulled a good one on us, huh? No doubt if the original Mayans were around today, they'd say "you should have seen your faces!"

Of course, I'm not sure that many of us really expected a meteor to crash into us, or the world to flip on its axis, but it was enough hype to make us a little leery about stepping outside to get the paper yesterday morning, right?

In honor of the ancient Mayans and their tremendous sense of humor, I present the latest product from B'hold Designs! It reads: "Happy Mayan April Fool's Day! 12-21-12"

Click HERE for the gear, and let the world know you enjoy a universal prank that promotes mass hysteria as much as the next guy.

Tomorrow Might be a Big Day

Well, tomorrow is the day many people have been dreading for months. Personally, I think it's just going to be another day. If I'm right, cool. If I'm wrong, then I'll be dead and won't care, so win win!

A lot of people are taking the "better safe than sorry" approach and grabbing up some really cool underground bunkers to help them survive any impending disaster.

Here's ABC looking at one company that creates them, and how the demand for their product has increased this year.

Check it out:

"Save the Neck for me, Clark."


Name the greatest Christmas movie of all time. Nope, try again. Uh uh.. not even close. The answer is:  "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

Every year we watch the Griswolds as they deal with a house full of dysfunctional guests in an attempt to have the perfect Christmas. Never has a failed attempt at happiness been so hilarious.

Now YOU can celebrate the Griswolds by wearing two of my favorite quotes from the film! Available on clothing and merchandise, there's something for everyone!

Whether you choose Cousin Eddie's reaction to Clark's comment about santa (HERE), or Clark's reply to Uncle Lewis' order (HERE), you can wear it with pride as you watch your own frightening relatives pull up the drive and announce how long they're staying.

Life's STILL a Circus!

This is a repost of an earlier "new product" announcement. Why am I reposting? Because people have discovered its disgusting brand of hilarity and are starting to buy it! Huzzah!


Several years ago we took our kids to the circus. It was smelly, overpriced and crowded, but somehow we had a good time. I don't remember much about that day, other than my sons feeding animals and begging for a $5 bag of cotton candy, but one image has stood out in my mind to this day. The clowns.

These clowns weren't particularly funny, but one of them performed a stunt that made me laugh the rest of the day and well into the next. He (or she... who can tell with the baggy clothes, wigs and makeup) bent over, and "tooted" while white powder shot out of his behind. A simple gag, yet hilarious and, obviously, memorable.

Wouldn't that be great if we could really do that... eat a handful of confetti and turn ourselves into human party favors? Well, thanks to this new item from your pals at B'hold Designs, you can at least let everyone know you're trying!

I figure life's kind of like a circus anyway, right? And if that's the case, I'd rather fart confetti than be fired out of a canon.

Brothers in Arms


Time to wipe off the fan, because the poop definitely hit it!

Last night was the mid-season finale of AMC's "The Walking Dead" and it was amazing! Rick, Daryl, Michonne and Oscar snuck in and rescued Glenn and Maggie!!

Glenn told Daryl and the rest of the group that it was Merle that beat the crap out of him and caused all the problems, and Daryl is shocked.

Speaking of shocked, Michonne (while waiting for the Governor) discovers his zombie child and rams her sword right thru it's mouth, driving the Governor berserk! A huge fight ensues and the Governor loses an eye…but gains an ally. Andrea puts a gun to Michonne and protects the Governor, making it clear what side she chooses.

As the group escapes, Daryl lays down fire while the others make their way out (except Oscar, who takes one for the team).

Unfortunately, Daryl is captured and that's where we leave it…. Daryl and now Merle (having his lie about killing Michonne discovered) at the hands of an angry mob led by a pissed off, one-eyed sociopath.

Oh!! And how about little Carl stepping up and greeting the new people just like dear old dad would? He's going to be one amazing zombie killer one day.

So...will Daryl and Merle have to fight to the death like Kirk and Spock? Will they be executed? Will Rick and the group save the day?? Will the new people revolt against Carl and the others???

Tune in February 10th and find out!

Here's a video of the cast and crew talking about this episode and what it means to their characters… Check it out!

The Discovery Channel Prepares for ZOMBIES


Zombies are on everyone's 'braaaainsss' right now. They're at the height of popularity and fans like myself are loving it. Long laughed at as ridiculous and comical, authors like Max Brooks have brought respect to the idea of the dead rising from their graves, and other entertainment entities have been taking notice.

Did you ever think you'd see a show on cable tv that's as amazing, dramatic, frightening,horrifying and incredibly well done as AMC's "The Walking Dead?" Neither did I.

Did you ever think you'd live to see the day that a beloved cultural icon like Bill Murray would make a surprise appearance in a zombie movie? Neither did I.

Did you ever think you'd hear about a drug that alters the mind in such a way that it makes the abuser crave human FLESH?? Me either.

Did you ever think you would see Brad Pitt fighting over the rights to a zombie novel and dumping huge amounts of money into putting it on screen? Dude, I NEVER saw that coming.

When you take all of that, and sprinkle in some reality shows about people obsessed with preparing for the end of the world, it only makes sense that a show about zombie preppers would be right around the corner.

Coming Tuesday, December 18th, the Discovery Channel is airing a documentary special entited "Zombie Apocalypse" which will examine whether an undead invasion is actually possible, AND introduces four people from different backgrounds who are prepping just for that possibility.

They include a mom who teaches her kids about fighting zombies and is fortifying her home from such an attack, and a man in Kansas who is the founder of an "Anti-Zombie Militia" with a stockpile of supplies in a secret location.

The picture above is from the show, and judging by the look of the fella, he's channeling both Tallahassee and Daryl Dixon. Smart man.

The Governor Upgrades His Douche Rating

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

HOLY COW what an episode!! Michonne is officially on "Team Rick" and now she, Rick, Darryl, and Oscar are on their way to rip the LIFE from the Governor's throat! After what he did to Maggie, I'm SO ready to see his brains splattered all over Woodsbury.

And how about that Glenn? Apparently he's been taking bad ass lessons from Darryl during the winter hiatus! 

Next week it all hits the fan as Team Rick storms Woodsbury to save Glenn and Maggie.

Now if only Andrea will take a bullet in the melee. I don't trust her. I have this feeling that she's so into this "Stepford" community and her tall sociopath of a boyfriend that she's either going to sell Rick and Michonne out when the time comes, or even worse... try to put one of them down.

Happy Thanksgiving!

All of us four-eyed nerds deep within the bowels of B'hold Designs would like to wish you, our loyal and somewhat bored followers, the best of Thanksgivings!

We all have things to be thankful for, as well as people we're missing and wish we could see again, so keep them in your hearts and minds as you fellowship with family and friends. I ask that you also keep in mind those brave men and women of our armed forces as they work so tirelessly to keep us safe, quite often while separated from their own loved ones.

And remember, as you go back for seconds, thirds, fourths, and eventually dessert, grab some pie for your buddies at B'hold Designs, and lay peacefully stuffed on the couch knowing that they and the Undead Disposal Ninja Posse are keeping the perimeter secure from the undead!

Blood & Guts Camo!

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

You know what I like about superhero movies? The back story. I love seeing the events that lead up to a hero coming to grips with their power, or developing a nice, healthy sense of revenge before going on a building smashing spree.

We saw that last night with the latest episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead."

After a Rambo-like fight with Merle, in which she made he and his men look absolutely silly, Michonne stumbled upon the old blood and guts camo secret that Rick and Glenn used way back in season one: Walker guts are stinky! Apparently, with that kind of stench, even the undead don't want anything to do with you. (of course, we all know that THIS is the only camo that will help when the zombies really do come.)

And after watching Glenn and Maggie get captured by Merle and forced to Woodbury, Michonne picked up the baby formula and made the trip to the prison where the greatest zombie killing team of all time is on the brink of formation....

With Rick, Darryl and Michonne on the same team, the Governor doesn't stand a chance.

OH yeah! And they found Carol! Get ready for some funky Darryl/Carol make-out scenes!

Chatting About "The Walking Dead"

Here's a clip of "Talking Dead", the after-show chat about each weeks episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead."

In this episode, host Chris Hardwick talks with show FX genius/producer/director Greg Nicotero and Entertainment Weekly's Dalton Ross.

In this segment, Greg has introduced a major prop in the previous weeks episode in which T-Dog gets his throat ripped out (It's amazingly realistic!), as well as discussing deleted scenes and other cool behind-the-scenes stuff.

Little Ass-Kicker

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

Isn't it interesting to see how everyone is handling the zombie apocalypse just fine except for the guys in charge?

After T-Dog and Lori's death, Rick takes a trip down looney blvd. and goes on a massive walker rampage. The governor, on the other hand, takes a calmer approach and simply brushes the hair of his rotting walker daughter.

Michonne is finally able to leave Woodsbury, but Andrea stays. It seems the "back to normal" lifestyle of the little community overrides the bad vibes Michonne feels. I can see where she's coming from, but I personally feel Andrea is an idiot and easily blinded.

For instance… the Governor has been keeping walkers. He says it's ok because he "has his reasons" and she's FINE with that. But it wasn't that long ago that she found out Hershel had walkers in his barn and she freaked…or was that because Shane was freaking about it?

So what now? Michonne's on her own…. Carol is still lost… the baby still doesn't have a name, though I like Daryl's idea (see blog title), and now the PHONE is ringing??

World War Z Movie First Look!

As every true zombie fan is aware, the amazing Max Brooks book "World War Z" is being made into a huge budget flick starring Brad Pitt.

I have to admit, I haven't been thrilled with the idea for a couple of reasons. One, I know they're changing the book to fit their needs or their "concept" of Max's story (if it ain't broke, don't fix it). Two, while I think Brad Pitt is a good actor, I just don't see him in this type of role. See my previous remarks HERE.

Now, that being said, I'm also a huge fan of a realistic look at a zombie apocalypse (at least as realistic as you can get). My thoughts have always been, the bigger the population, the bigger the horde, and it looks as if this film will at least get that aspect right... in a big way.

Two Deaths, One Birth

Warning: Spoilers ahead!


Wow. Just freaking… wow.

Episode #304 of "The Walking Dead" was all about raw, real, human emotion and despair, and it was a tear-jerker!

Evil prisoner Andrew (thought dead two episodes ago) reappeared and caused all kinds of crazy shenanigans last night by opening gates, and luring walkers inside the prison! The once secure facility was suddenly a killing ground as a sea of walkers made their way in and took everyone by surprise.

People were separated, scared and confused as to what could have caused this problem. Everyone fought valiantly… even Herschel as he downed a walker with a crutch while hobbling away… but unfortunately there were casualties.

T-Dog… a great character whom we've all come to love… suffered a terrible bite to the shoulder while fighting off the horde and later made an amazing sacrifice by charging two walkers with no weapons but his massive fists, so that Carol could get away. Her whereabouts are currently unknown.

And, of course, Lori goes into labor and has to give birth in a filthy boiler room with only Maggie and Carl to assist. Unfortunately, because of complications she has to have a c-section and bleeds out. Poor Carl puts a bullet in her head to ensure she doesn't turn.

Here's a clip of the cast talking about the episode and what it means to their characters:

"Save the neck for me, Clark."

Now that Halloween has come and gone, and the sugar rush is nearly over, I can finally start looking at the Christmas displays that popped up all over town a month ago without squinting in confusion.

There are a lot of things about this time of year that are special... bone-chilling cold... sunset at 4:00 pm... bone-chilling cold... but the best of all is the classic film "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

Every year we watch the Griswolds as they deal with a house full of dysfunctional guests in an attempt to have the perfect Christmas. Never has a failed attempt at happiness been so hilarious.

Now YOU can celebrate the Griswolds by wearing two of my favorite quotes from the film! Available on clothing and merchandise, there's something for everyone!

Get Prepared!

I'm not a conspiracy theorist or anything, but I can't help but notice how a lot of official entities are jumping on board the zombie bandwagon to get their messages across.

First came the CDC's social media campaign. About a year later, the Dept. of Homeland Security joins in with their own tongue-in-cheek warning. Then we hear about security firm HALO Corp. incorporating zombies into their yearly disaster/crisis training scenario for law enforcement, military, and medical personnel. Now the Red Cross joins the horde with their "just for fun" tips for survival in an actual disaster.

Happy Halloween!

My ringtone is the "Halloween" theme, which is a lot of fun normally. Today it's annoying because I've had my tv parked on AMC ever since they came back to Dish, and they're playing Halloween movies almost non-stop, so I keep thinking my phone is going off.

I have good news! The B'hold Designs "Undead Disposal Ninja Posse" have surveyed the perimeter and designated our zombie threat level to be "low to barely moderate", which is not as good as "slim to none", but not bad either! So whether you are heading out tonight to score mountains of candy, OR, hiding in your bushes in hopes of giving small children emotional scars that will last a lifetime, you may do so without fear of zombie invasion! Huzzah!

If you DO happen to see a zombie, consider that it could be someone in costume and give them a simple test. Before clocking them in the noggin' with a shovel, hand them a box of raisins. If they complain that it's not candy and begin egging your house, you're safe.

Heads Will Roll!!

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

Welcome to Woodbury - where the tea flows freely, the curfew is strictly enforced, and you just might get your head severed and put in a fish tank (ala "Futurama")!

Question: If a military helicopter goes down in the woods, will anyone notice? In a zombie apocalypse, the answer is YES. Within minutes of crashing, Michonne and Andrea arrive on scene… followed by walkers… followed by the Governor and his men. As the ladies hide and watch, they are surprised by a blast from the past - Merle - who is now a "bionic-stump" accentuated henchman with, no doubt, a little pent-up aggression as to his ordeal on a rooftop in Atlanta.

Bound and blindfolded, Michonne and Andrea are brought to the seemingly safe haven known as Woodbury where they meet the Governor. He seems like a nice guy, right? He speaks softly, tells them they can leave whenever they want, gives them clothes and even makes them scrambled eggs. Of course there's the thing with him murdering innocent people and keeping floating heads in his man-cave, but we've all got quirks, right?

Michonne is not impressed and remains suspicious, while Andrea lives up to her usual "I'm so attracted to power that I let it reduce me to an air-headed junior high cheerleader twisting my hair as the star QB gives the valedictorian a wedgie" character and gets all warm in the nether regions for the handsome leader of the little community. Will she resort to her signature "gear shift" maneuver to get his attention like she did Shane? Only time will tell….

Simon of the Dead

I have a confession. I enjoy watching "X Factor." I do. Great singers, great moments of success coupled with tragic moments of failure make for great television, and in the middle of it all is the man we all love to hate... Simon Cowell.

With ridiculous amounts of money, throngs of fans, mountains of hate mail and undoubtedly a closet full of t-shirts, he is RIPE for the B'hold Designs Zombification Machine!

So, throwing fear of lawsuits to the wind, our band of giggling lunatics scientists threw the switch and then watched Sponge Bob in the break room until the timer dinged.

The results might look a little different to you. My son suggested adjusting the "gross" dial on the machine for a "fresher zombie" appearance. Did it work? You decide.

Here are some scare pranks* to get you inspired and in the mood for fear!

Take No Prisoners!

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

So what do you do if you take over a prison, but find surviving prisoners already there? Oh, and by the way, your groups only doctor is dying. OH yeah and there are flesh-eating walkers everywhere.

If you're Rick Grimes, it's just another day at the office and you treat it as such.

Once Hershel is safe back in cell block C with Glenn, Carl and the girls, Rick, Darryl and T-Dogg deal with the surviving prisoners as best they can, by trying to convince them to leave. Unfortunately, the prisoners leader, Tomas, seems to take offense to strangers taking over their prison and clearly has an issue with authority.

But "Season Three Rick", being more than well-adjusted to this new way of life, handles the situation with clear thinking, and a no-nonsense attitude. And a machete.

Pledge Allegiance to the "B"

Remember the other day when I showcased a new shirt design? Well, I was so happy with that illustration that I wondered "why should the Undead Disposal Ninja Posse have all the fun??" So, I confiscated the look and used it for B'hold Designs!

But I didn't just do it for me. I also did it for you - my loyal follower/consumer/disciple. The B'hold Designs Research Team tells me that you are all constantly on the look out for ways to show your blind allegiance, and for that I thank you.

Talking Dead

In case you didn't know, AMC airs a terrific after-show discussion of "The Walking Dead", called (appropriately enough) "Talking Dead."

Host Chris Hardwick has the amazing opportunity to talk all about the show every week with all kinds of fantastic people, including those directly involved with it's production!

Here's a clip of Chris discussing the Season Three premiere with "Walking Dead" star Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne, and executive producer and writer, Glen Mazzarra!

Huge Ratings for "The Walking Dead" Season Three Premiere!

There's no doubt that AMC's "The Walking Dead" is a fantastic program. You know it, I know it, and now it seems everyone else is figuring that out as well!

Last Sunday's premiere drew in 10.9 million viewers, which is about 50% more than the season 2 premiere, and NOW it ranks as the biggest telecast of any drama series in basic-cable history! How freakin' sweet is that?

But, that's not all.

In the key category of adults between the ages of 18 - 49, "The Walking Dead" premiere scored 7.3 million viewers. That's higher than "Modern Family" AND "The Voice!" (see the whole article here)

Take THAT Dish!


Here's Steven Yeun (Glenn) talking with L.A. Times reporter, Scott Collins:

Return of "The Walking Dead"!

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

Rick and his band of survivors are back, and boy are they getting good at this zombie killing thing!

The shows producers and writers have been talking for months about how the action has been seriously pumped up this year and they weren't kidding! They hit the ground running with everyone on the run from the ever growing hordes of walkers that are right on their heels. Everyone seems to know their place and duty and they are a well-oiled machine!

Michonne made a brief appearance, but was onscreen long enough to show us all how skilled she is in head removal. Like a female Darryl, she wields her weapon with scary accuracy and a steel-eyed focus.

All thru the episode, Rick shows us how he's grown into the leadership role with a no-nonsense approach to everything. This includes his wife, who at the end of last season spit fire and attitude at him for killing Shane... something that had to be done.

Lori is near the end of her pregnancy and needing a clean, dry place to have the baby. Fortunately, the prison is discovered and the process of clearing it out begins.

Despite the small pockets of undead, securing the prison goes well until Herschel is bitten on the ankle! As we all know, a bite spells a quick, miserable death, but Rick had an idea - an idea so radical, I'm not sure last seasons Rick could have done it. In a matter of a few whacks, he lops off the bottom portion of Herschel's leg, in an attempt to save his life. Obviously, the pain is too great, and Herschel passes out. Only time will tell if Rick's idea will work.

As if that weren't enough to blow your mind, the episode ends with the discovery of more survivors... prisoners!

There it is... the new season is here and we have hit the ground SPRINTING!

Check out this video of the cast and crew talking about the making of "Episode 301: Seed."

Today Is THE DAY!

This is it, zombie fans! The day we've been waiting for since late March... the premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead" Season Three!!!

On a personal note, this will be kind of a different season for me, as I am still on Dish Network. You remember Dish right? They dropped AMC and left us all high and dry.

So, why am I still with Dish? Prepare for a list of excuses... 1) We are under contract, and I don't want to pay a fee for leaving... 2) We have a lot of stuff on our DVR that I really don't want to lose, including hours of programs that have yet to be watched... 3) This is the first time I've had an issue with Dish. Their prices are reasonable and I'm still hoping that they'll be adding AMC back sometime during the season.

OK... having said that, how will I be watching the greatest show of all time? Well, for the premiere episode, AMC will be showing it online for free at the same time as it shows on tv. All they require is that you register ahead of time. Click HERE for the info.

As for the rest of the season, I'll be purchasing each episode on itunes when it becomes available the next day.

But enough about that!! Break out the pizza and shotguns! It's zombie time!!

Aim high. Run fast. Tune in.
