World War Z.

In the book, they're the humans who have psychological breakdowns and start acting like the zombies. It's a really neat concept and I'm scared to see how they handle it in the movie (if they touch on it at all).

I had been wondering if that was the origin of your name!

So... do you act like a zombie? ;)

Abunai was the name of my favorite WoW toon - a troll rogue. I started playing her when I was living in Japan studying comic arts in Kyoto, so I went with a Japanese word for her name. Abunai means 'dangerous'.

It's my username on almost everything now.

Mine is for my favorite character that only appears in two Looney Tunes cartoons with Bugs Bunny. The only monster to wear white sneakers!

Bugs Bunny: doing his hair "Bobby Pins Please" is pretty funny :D

Mine favorite is "Pete Puma" , Bugs : "How Many lumps do you want?" Pete : "I want a whole lot of lumps"
The more things change, the more they stay the same

Hoban 'Wash' Washburn: It's okay, I'm a leaf on the wind!
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: What does that mean?

Also when Bugs gives Gossamer a manicure "put your paddies in the water" and Gossamer wails in pain as the mouse traps snap down on his fingers. ;D

rando is short for my given name Randolph.  Back in the day I guess I wanted to be different so I used rando as my nickname and preferred it to Randy  ::)

I don't think so. As far as I know, kotobukiya is based in Tokyo.

I was going to make a joke about what type of disc you ride, but then I realized it would have made me sound old. When was the last time you heard someone say "disc jockey"

Ha! Quite some time ago, to be fair...!

Yep, I picked it up on my recent re-read in anticipation of the movie. It's obscure enough that I often find it available, but well known enough that it still gets recognized.

...And on most of my days in the office, I am a zombie. ;)

My older brother was in the Navy and called his sub the blackpipe.  In choosing a user name my own name Cedric was always taken so I created blakpipe with no "c" which has always been available.

When I go incognito my forum name is Adapa or if that is taken, AdapaOfEridu.

Adapa was a Mesopotamian leader who was tricked by a Demi god to give up immortal life.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Dr .Bloodenstuff was a character I created for the Halloween parties my wife & I throw annually. We're big into Halloween. Its based loosely on Dr. Scratchansniff from Animaniacs. My avatar is me dressed up as Dr. Bloodenstuff. Had I given it more thought, I maybe should've used my Twitter handle, UntrueBeliever, since its more comic book related.
