+ I was totally remiss in not posting this yesterday: scientists have been analyzing the possibility of human survival in the (gory) face of a zombie attack. So no worries, people are on the job! Thanks to Park Bench reader Gayle for sending the link.
+ "Heroes" star Zachary Quinto has joined efforts to preserve video arcades, which are closing their doors at a rapid pace throughout the country.
+ And here's one less thing I'll have to watch: ABC is developing "The Time Traveler's Wife" as a TV series, produced by "Friends" creator Marta Kauffman. I'm sorry, I shouldn't judge. It could be good. Maybe. Possibly.
+ I'd mentioned this a while back but now there's an air date. The Kids in the Hall are reuniting for an eight-part series on the CBC. It's a comic murder mystery, all of the guys are back and it's set to air in January. Personally, I can't wait.
+ Have you heard about the rash of "put"-pocketing in London? A broadband provider called TalkTalk has hired former pick-pockets to surreptitiously put money into people's wallets -- anywhere from five to 20 pound notes. The goal is to give away 100,000 pounds, starting in London and then branching out into other parts of the country.
+ And finally, would you like a chance to win a PS3 Slim? Well, today's your chance. EA and the Destructoid web site are giving one away to promote the October release of the Brutal Legend game, which features the voices of Jack Black and Ozzy Osbourne, among others, and revolves around a roadie who gets transported to a fantasy metal world where he uses his guitar to battle bad guys. To enter, just go to Twitter, follow @dinomas and use the #brutal legend hashtag to take part in the online festivities.
