Download Mail Order Zombie #163 here!

This is how Mail Order Zombie celebrates reviewing 300 movies! Brother D and Zombie Hunter Tony (author of Kings of the Dead and co-host of the Wasteland Wanderers podcast) hit Portland's Hollywood Theatre last week for a 35m print screening of Dr. Butcher MD (aka Zombie Holocaust; dir. Marino Girolami, aka Frank Martin) and share their thoughts on it this week (Obrero!); when he wasn't at the theater, Brother D was back at MOZ Central reviewing Broken Springs (dir. Neelet Lawson) and The Frankenstein Syndrome (dir. Sean Tretta). We've got the current Zombie Aptitude Test courtesy of Professor Chad, the contest for 2 ladies t-shirts courtesy of Abner the Comedy Zombie and the Zombie Beat with the best damn zombie news reporter in the MOZ Family, Need-a-Nickname Scott. And the best damn wife in the MOZ Family (sorry ladies!), Miss Bren joins Brother D for the Feedback Discussion.

New Dead Island Video Game Trailer

Sunday, May 15, 2011

We censored a video?

On Twitter, there was some back-and-forth re: a video that MOZ supposedly had censored. We didn't know anything about it, and while we definitely question the definition of the word censorship a lot of folks are using these days, we wouldn't discourage anyone from expressing themselves while remembering that free speech doesn't mean uncriticized speech.

We received this email through the Mail Order Zombie email address today.

Hello MOZ Proprietors,

I can assure you that I did not make anything up about the video clip that either your or one of your "family members" had removed.

Another example of unhealthy paranoia on your end. I'm glad all this censorship is working out for you, and I'm sure it is all part of your 3-year plan to total zombie podcast domination.

I had a lot of back and forth with the video creator about it, and he doesn't want to stir things up anymore -- or else I really would have had fun with this on my blog and podcast. I consider him to be a friend, and he asked me not to talk about any of it specifically. I am trying to procure said video so I can host it myself.
