In China to donate his kidney to his dying niece, former black-ops agent Deacon awakes the day before the operation to find he is the latest victim of organ theft. Stitched up and pissed-off, Deacon descends from his opulent hotel in search of his stolen kidney and carves a blood-soaked path through the darkest corners of the city. The clock is ticking for his niece and with each step he loses blood. [source]

His OPULENT hotel.

Will Forte on Bill Burr's podcast:

Bill How did you come up with [The Last Man on Earth]?

Will: We had settled on this other show idea. It was about… Val Kilmer used to, he stayed with me for a while 'cause we became buddies through MacGruber. This is in real life. He was leaving this one place, and wanted to look for another place, so he just needed a place to stay for what I thought was a couple days, and he just couldn't find the right place, so it ended up being several months. So that was what we were gonna write the show about. It was gonna be a partly fact, partly fictional…

Will: While [Val Kilmer] was staying with me, I was watching The Amazing Race. I was really into that show at the time. He thought I was an idiot for watching it, and then I got him fascinated by it, so we, for a short period of time, were planning to try to get on The Amazing Race together.

Val Kilmer should show up in season two of The Last Man on Earth playing himself. Celebrity survivor.

Kane Was There

// Las Vegas, NV

You know how people bemoan that MTV isn't music television anymore, or that History Channel isn't about history anymore? I feel similarly about most of the themed resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. Management has made hot messes of original concepts and designs. I mean, what even is Treasure Island now?

Ye olde Buca di Beppo

Sandwiched between The Cosmopolitan and Bellagio, the Jockey Club is the house in Up.

Considering that The Harmon at CityCenter is STILL being demolished, the carcasses of the unfinished Fontainebleau and Echelon Place resorts may just sit on the north side of the Strip forever, like scenic albatrosses.

The Fashion Show Mall is re-developing again. Remember when a submarine protruded from its facade for that restaurant created by Steven Spielberg?


Submarine to flying saucer to…

Jackie Robinson the basketball player reportedly intends to build a 22,000-seat arena on the Strip beside the Sahara SLS, never mind that MGM is currently building a 20,000-seat arena behind New York-New York. Three arenas within three miles of each other on the same street?

What Vegas needs is a new stadium (cough, Fontainebleau/Echelon Place). Super Bowl on the Strip. WrestleMania. Final Four.

Little Things

  • The seemingly endless stretch of Asian strip malls that is West Spring Mountain Road
  • The combination Panda Express and Chipotle beside Harrah's
  • The store in the Venetian mall that shows video in its windows of Michael Jackson shopping inside on a loop
  • The swanky stand-alone McDonald's outside dumpy Circus Circus
  • The house on the way from the airport to the Strip with a unipole billboard planted in its driveway
  • The hipster-y area neighbouring the east end of the Fremont Street Experience
  • The park created out of shipping containers in said hipster-y area
  • The shipping container treehouse in said park

Suplex City

A Manson-style cult uses a long-lost Fab Four song to jump-start the zombie Helter Skelter. A popular radio DJ plays the song, inadvertently creating a flesh eating zombie in a walrus costume. [source]

"Free as a Bird" or "Real Love"?

A flesh-eating zombie, as opposed to…?

Why is the revived corpse in a walrus costume?

So that's two horror films involving a walrus costume.

Reality Competition Idea: Chopped, but with short films. Filmmakers must incorporate four mystery ingredients into a short film.

"And you must use: A cult, a Beatles song, a zombie, and a walrus costume."

Idea: A self-serve burritoria. Grab a tortilla, spoon fillings onto it, and then an employee will wrap your burrito and weigh it. $0.33/oz.
