  • The New Architects 
    records randomly

    The New Architects is a project of a new structure to give a new light on an old subject – Anarchy.

    Over the years, the teachings and actions of those who believe have been removed from the mainstream thought and covered with misinformation and/or labeled as ‘punk’.

    The many levels of Anarchy reach further than one culture or lifestyle. There is a rich, deep history that is being lost along with the works of individuals and groups, from around the world, who strive to improve their lives and the lives of the people (and animals) around them.

    It is the goal of ‘The New Architects’ to seek out individuals and groups who work, in their everyday lives, to bring forth the ideas of what is defined as Anarchy and open up a dialogue between people in hope to inspire others.

    As the definition of what anarchy is will differ from person to person, it is not our goal to give a definition but to give strength and inspiration to those who work to improve a system that is broken.

    The New Architects are individuals and communities that make a difference in the way we view the world.

    You can find The New Architects on StitcheriTunes , and of course, on Zombie Popcorn.

  • Natural Ones 

    Natural Ones is a Dungeons and Dragons gaming show.

    Creeping through the dark tunnel you wish you had packed more than just the one sun-rod as its glow and comfort began to fade. You have made the tragic mistake of splitting the party and venturing on your own, but what could you do? There was treasure to be had. Unfortunately the gold in your sack will not quiet the grumbling in your belly, how long have you been down in these tunnels? Days? Weeks? All you know is the dark, and the madness that comes with it. Your sun-rod fades out, and the darkness envelops you, and in your last moments you feel a dark presence gazing upon you, and you know... It's the Natural Ones Podcast.

    You can find Natural Ones on StitcheriTunes, and of course, on Zombie Popcorn.

  • Zombie Popcorn Stories 
    We all love listening to stories and most of us enjoy stories about people’s lives.  So now, Zombie Popcorn invites you to share YOUR stories about things that YOU care about so we can hear and learn from each other. Your story can change lives.

    Fashion Victims – As we grow older fashion seems to become a main focus of our daily lives. No matter how much we fight against it we know that our clothes seem to represent who we are and how we see ourselves and more times than not, it means how others view us.

    Lost Karma - Most people, no matter what faith or lifestyle choices they made, believe in some form of karma. Most live their lives believing that they should act in responsible ways. That they should act in a way towards other people that would reflect the way they, themselves would like to be treated.  Some believe that creating good deeds will bring good deeds in return to themselves.

    Life Lessons - Life lessons come to you in odd ways but the message holds true.

    The Life of a Carny – The story of a man who ran away from home at a young age to become a carny – this is his story.

  • The Forest is Real

    January 08, 2016

    unspecified

    [tab_group] [tab title="The Forest"] The Forest opens this Friday, January 8, 2016. The film is set the legendary Aokigahara Forest of Japan, which is also known as the Suicide Forest, due to the high number of, well, suicides - it is the most 'popular' destination in Japan for suicide. Anyway, the film, THE FOREST follows Sara (Natalie Dormer of “Game of Thrones” and “The Hunger Games”), a young American woman in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. Here is the synopsis: Rising with terrifying grandeur at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan, the legendary real-life Aokigahara Forest is the suspense-filled setting of the supernatural thriller. A young American woman, Sara (Natalie Dormer of “Game of Thrones” and “The Hunger Games”), journeys there in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. In the company of expatriate Aiden (Taylor Kinney of “Chicago Fire”), Sara enters the forest having been well warned to “stay on the path.” Determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, Sara will have to face the angry and tormented souls of the dead that prey on anyone who dares come near them. These malevolent spirits lying in wait for Sara at every turn will plunge her into a frightening darkness from which she must fight to save herself. In addition to looking like an awesome film, which Zombie Popcorn will go see on opening weekend, their promotion around this film was some of the best I have seen. Yesterday, I received this email: Subject Line: We've found something of yours in THE FOREST Body of email: Hey Jason, We've sent you something - a relic of the past, a portal into a world of anger and lost souls, a warning of things to come...When you receive it today, explore it at your own peril. But if you choose to peer into the abyss - if you start the journey - stay on the path. There are surprises waiting for those who don't look away. Looking forward to hearing back from you – more to come… Gloria I received this email on my phone while I was out and about. I thought to myself, "Wow, that is a strange email", then didn't think much of it afterwards. I came home and found a white box sitting in front of my door, so thinking back to the email I received earlier in the day, I began opening the box as I walked through the door. The first thing I see is a note that reads, 'The Forest' Watch out! Sometimes, even if you don't want to, the Forest has a way of sucking you in. The spirits are restless and It will get you... Somehow... #TheForestIsReal. [su_custom_gallery source="media: 24095,24094" limit="5" link="lightbox" title="never"] I removed the card to find a read viewmaster 3d with a viewmaster slide already in the viewfinder, so I did the most obvious thing, I put the viewfinder to my face and began clicking through the slides. The slides seem to show some very creepy images of what looks like spirits and bodies in the forest, then some how - THE Forest sucked me in and on the last slide I found myself in the slide... here is what I saw TheForest [/tab] [/tab_group]

  • A Guide to Geeky DIY Decor

    November 13, 2015

    shutterstock_271173749

    [tab_group] [tab title="Geeky DIY Decor"] Your style is a representation of your one-of-a-kind personality. You want your home, or your room, to represent your interests and also feel like a well-curated space of comfort. There are a number of ways you can integrate your quirky interests into your interior decor. Here are some easy-to-make DIY projects that will help you transform and personalize your space:

    Personalized Throw Pillow

    Create a custom-made pillow with your favorite adage or saying. Consider clever, funny and stand-out quotes like “Talk Nerdy to Me,” “Ctrl, Alt, Del” or “I Like Big Books and I Cannot Lie.” Purchase a throw pillow cover from a home goods store — like Ikea or Target — and some fabric paint or iron-on letters from a craft store. You can either hand-write your desired quote with fabric paint or iron on the letter transfers for a more polished look. Many of the craft items you will need for this project can be found online at Michaels or JoAnns. The construction of your pillow and the letter transference process should take no longer than one hour.

    Flower Arrangements

    Fresh flowers bring an added element of life and freshness to any living space. If you are a chemist, utilize chemistry beakers and test tube holders as vases. This will make your florals feel like botany specimens that are displayed in a clever way, and will still add an air of beauty into the room. You can purchase flowers easily so they can remain fresh every week. For example, online florist FTD offers a variety of beautiful blooms that will be delivered right to your doorstep. For a special occasion, you can create a flower sculpture of your favorite video game character. One blogger created a Yoshi flower arrangement with green, white, red and black flowers, which has an incredibly likeness to the character.

    Star Wars Light Switch

    Awaken the force with a Luke/Vader light switch. This DIY project can be quickly crafted with some spray paint and sticker lettering. Purchase a white light switch panel from an online or local hardware store and place blue painters tape over the top half of it. Make sure you overlap the tape when you layer it so no paint seeps through. Spray paint half of the panel black and let dry it for at least 24 hours. Purchase black and white letter stickers from a craft store. Spell out “Vader” in white stickers on the black, bottom half of the light switch and “Luke” on the top, white half. Paint with a clear, sealant paint or some Hodge Podge, so the lettering won’t peel and the paint won’t scratch.

    Lord of The Rings Greeting Sign

    Create a LOTR inspired sign that will permit or deny visitors entrance into your room or home. Purchase a piece of wood siding at your local lumber store and have it cut down to six inches. With an electric drill, drill two holes at the top that will be large enough for a piece of twine. Stain your piece of wood the color you’d like, if it isn’t already treated, so it has the rustic, Middle Earth feel. With a pencil draw out the phrases, “Speak Friend And Enter” on one side and “You Shall Not Pass” on the other. You can utilize calligraphy-style stencils for the design so the typeface has a magical feel. At the bottom of each sign you could draw an elf tree or a silhouette of an outstretched Gandolf. Go over your outline with black, permanent marker and seal it with a transparent sealant paint for wood preservation. [/tab] [/tab_group]
