Zombies are taking over the world!

How would you fare if the dead began to rise up to attack and devour the living?

Would you break out the blunt objects and fight your way to a safe zone?

Or cower in a corner and wait for the cavalry?

Now more than ever, there are plenty of resources for you to learn how to cope with the stresses of a zombie apocalypse.

Zombies nowadays are big business. The undead have shuffled a long way since they first lurched onto cinema screens in 1932 in the first feature length flick White Zombie.

Over 80 years later, the living dead and the fear they conjure up for audiences has spread over all forms of entertainment; from literature to films, TV, games and even music (most notably, Michael Jackson’s Thriller).

Here is a list of essential reading and viewing that B.O.R.E recommends you familiarise yourself with, just in case you find yourself surrounded by reanimated corpses with empty stomachs…






On this Day…

On this day, March 5th, this happened…

1962 The birthday of twins Charlie and Craig Reid, but you will know them as the crazy singing Scottish singing duo ‘‘the Proclaimers’.


1963, The Beatles recorded what would be their third single ‘From Me to You’ just five days after John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote the song.


1946 Winston Churchill delivered his speech on the divide between Eastern and Western Europe, which is now famously know as the ‘Iron Curtain’ speech.

1975  Also the birthday of the actress Eva Mendes, who rose to fame in the film Training Day back in 2001 but we probably most recognise her from the film Hitch (and for dating Ryan Gosling)

In Iran, today is National Tree Painting Day.
