Need I say more? (Well, the cats forgot me, but they'll get over that.)


Random Michelle K said...


No more need for Vogon poetry or Gashlycrumb Tinies!

MWT said...

Yay home!

So, pancreas is back to behaving and everything?

Nathan said...

I liked the Gashlycrumb Tinies.

And yes, the pancreas is pancratically pancretizing like gangbusters...with a little help from a few daily doses of intestinal microflora.

(Note: intestinal microflora is my new favorite thing to say! Take that Pauley F'ing Shore!)

Tania said...


P is for Pancreas, massive and necrotic

Q is for Qured in way thoroughly quixotic

*bows to Tania*

Nathan, you keep that pancreas in line, now that you got it home, you hear???

Anne C. said...


And yes, cats can be fickle. Enjoy it before they remember you're a fun plaything.

Hurray for you
Hurray for me
Hurray, Hurray
The Nathan now is free

Dum da dum pa rum pa rum pa rum

Now the time has come for seeing
what the hospital did to NG
And since he hedged
he'd be unwedged
that's what we've come to see
He's been poked and he's been needled
had doctors who twiddled and deedled
We'll have a ton of fun
Now that Nathan has been sprung

Think ouch-ish
Think suck-ish
Think Pan-cre-a-ti-tish
For lack of food matter
has made Na-than un-fatter

Hip Hip Hip Hip

(Think of the Winnie the Pooh song when he's being pulled out from Rabbitt's hole where he's been stuck - that's the music needed for these lyrics)

Welcome back, Nathan!

I discovered your blog via the Anonymous Production Assistant. It's quite a fun read. (Yours, I mean.) (Well, his is, too, but I was talking about you.)

I was wondering if you could offer me some advice. I'm making a movie, but there's a problem: I've never really scouted locations before!

I know the what I want the locations to look like, and I have a general idea about logistics (power, parking, and poop), but I don't really know where to begin.

How do you search for locations? When you find a place, how do you approach the building's owner? Hell, how do you even find the building's owner?

Another wrinkle, of course, is the fact that I have a very tiny budget. Any advice for an indie short?

Nathan said...


Welcome to the blog. I'm not 100% yet, but I'll see if I can't help. I'll have to read your blog a little to see if I can't get a better idea what you're trying to do, but if you want to send me an email (linked on my profile), with some specifics, I'll give it some thought tomorrow.

From my little reading, I'm guessing you're in L.A., and the rules are different there, but there are some constants.

Give me some info and I'll think about it tomorrow.

Right now, my brain is trying to wrap itself around a wondrous gift I received a little while ago with no real hint as to who sent it. (there are actually quite a few good suspects.) I'll be posting pics of the giftie tomorrow with some of my sleuthing.

Anyway, my head no work so good yet for figuring out things. More betterer tomorrow.

MWT said...

Yay intestinal microflora to the rescue of Nathan's pancreas! :)

Steve Buchheit said...

our glorious leader is home. But, now we need to develop the schedule of who has to take Nathan to the bathroom to "help."

Oh HELL no.

neurondoc said...

Not me. I don't do bathroom duty. :-D

Tania said...

Steve, I might work in a hospital, but I am STRICTLY NON CLINICAL.

No close up and personal learning about Nathan's intestinal microflora, thank you very much.

Nathan said...


I got this one covered on my own, thanks.


Janiece said...


Nathan, you'll always be "Zombie Pancreas" to me, in spite of your intestinal microflora.

Nathan said...

Well don't forget...

microflora have little micro-brainz.

Jeff Hentosz said...

Here. I brought you a bouquet of microflora:


It can be an emergency stash in case you run out. Don't worry, I just made 'em fresh. They're not from anyone else's intestines.

Welcome home, HaTeMaiL.

Nathan said...

For those of you who might be missing the joke, I actually thought HTML stood for 'hatemail' until Jeff told me different.

I swear.

mattw said...

Welcome home Zombie Leader.

kimby said...

Yay!!!! The wearer of the Teak is michelle, I am very glad that I did not have to shoot you...and that now you can return to your pre-zombie state.

and Vince..Milne would be proud!

"Intestinal Microflora" is my new band name. The opening bands? Zombie Pancreas and Squick the Undead, of course.

Yay to Nathan being back home! And don't worry, the kitties will be back to annoying you for food in no time.

Random Michelle K said...

Oh joy has come to Brooklyn
Nathan has gone home
With a bouquet of microflora
The UCF will party on
But most of all we're happy
He can go to the toilet alone

(My guess is the cats haven't forgotten you--they're just being coy. Cats can be like that, y'know.)
