Naked Pumpkin Run in Fremont

The Naked Runners in Fremont

Today, at about 11am, a group of men ran through the Fremont neighborhood with pumpkins on their head … and no clothes.

Why?

I honestly have no idea. There are a half-dozen “naked” events every year in this town, and I’ve yet to fully grasp the fascination with this particular form of expression. Different strokes, though. I go out and cover these events because they’re unique to Seattle and the local media refuses to show them uncensored. Given the number of views these things get, there is also a clear public interest in streaking as an art form.

The men

2011 Seattle Zombie Walk Video

Red, White & Dead Zombie Walk

Red, White & Dead Zombie Walk

Ack, I stayed up all night rendering a super-long video.

Why?

I just don’t know.

Below is about 80-90% of the entire Seattle Zombie Walk.

I included the entire thing out of respect to the walkers who may want to see themselves. The mainstream news generally provides 10-15 second excerpts so it’s a crap shoot as to whether or not the zombies will be able to see themselves on TV.

Also, If you were not able to make it to Fremont for the Zombie Walk, well, consider that problem rectified. Now, you

Zombie Attack

Update July 3, 2011: It appears to be official. Seattle once again broke the world record yesterday with 4,522 zombies eclipsing New Jersey by roughly 400 zombies.

The Zombie Walk is going down right now. I am sending these shots up live from the event.

4,520 Zombies were in attendance, Guiness will confirm whether this event beat New Jersey’s current world record of 4,093 zombies.

Fremont, Seattle. The self-proclaimed “Center of the Universe”. Home of Getty Images, Adobe Systems, a statue of Lenin, and Nirvana’s “Bleach” album. It’s also the location for one of the more unusual parades in the USA.

Even though it was wet and a bit cold today, thousands of people turned out for the annual Fremont Solstice Parade, an event designed to celebrate the arrival of summer. The highlight of the parade is, of course, the nude bicyclists who kick off the festivities.

Now, I considered writing a lengthy article about my own experiences and impressions today,
