Zombie of the Year 2009

| October 31, 2009

Here it is, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, where we announce the Zombie Rights Campaign’s 2009 Zombie of the Year. But first, we here at the ZRC would like to say a few words. Zombies aren’t appreciated by our society. It’s pointless to pretend otherwise. We live in a world where the often [...]

Zombie of the Year 2009 Award Prizes!

| October 30, 2009

What would an award ceremony be without prizes, right? The Zombie Rights Campaign established the Zombie of the Year Award to encourage and reward positive Zombie role models in our society, and in that spirit, we got to thinking. Instead of just naming a winner and presenting with with a certificate of appreciation, how about [...]

Zombie of the Year 2009 Important Announcement

| October 29, 2009

It’s with a heavy heart that the ZRC must announce that we are officially retracting Baron Mardi’s nomination for 2009 Zombie of the Year, due to grave ethnical misconduct following last week’s Atomic Age Cinema performance. On the basis of trusted eyewitness accounts from this event, we must conclude that Baron Mardi is no longer [...]

ZRC at Schuster’s Playtime Farm

| October 27, 2009

Last Saturday the Technical Director and I took a much-needed break from the internet activism arm of the ZRC and went out to Schuster’s Playtime Farm for an evening of Zombie-friendly fun. Specifically, we were there to experience the wondrous mysteries of their giant corn maze. Spoooooooky. All right, so it really isn’t all *that* [...]

Politics and Health Care

| October 26, 2009

While the Zombie Rights Campaign is a non-partisan pro-Zombie Outreach organization, I feel it is important to note the contributions of the Differently Animated Community to the political debates now going on in this country. Zombie groups are showing up across the nation to demand health care reform from various angles, some arguing that Zombies [...]

Reanimation PREVENTION? What’s up with that?

| October 24, 2009

So we apparently got a link from a rabidly Anti-Zombie website, the National Center for Reanimation Prevention and Control. They feel that the concept of Zombie Rights is somehow absurd, and suggest that the rights in question should be the right to a messy death at the hands of a gun-toting vigilante. I hate to [...]

Back from Schuster’s Playtime Farm

| October 24, 2009

Just a quick update to let all our readers know that the ZRC representatives made it back from a violence free outing to Schuster’s Playtime Farm, just east of Madison, WI. There was a very elaborate corn maze to navigate, fudge and treats to purchase, and a wide variety of bizarre pumpkins available as well. [...]

Mea Culpa

| October 21, 2009

All apologies but your humble ZRC President has fallen slightly ill this evening, so the nominations for ZRC Zombie of the Year 2009 will have to go out tomorrow. Oh, if only *I* could be as durable and dependable as a Zombie. If only. –JJS

Zombie of the Year Announcement

| October 20, 2009

As media watchdogs, we here at the ZRC feel it is important to recognize positive role models for Zombiekind whenever they appear in our sadly biased media. For this reason, I’m pleased to announce that the ZRC will be presenting its First Annual Zombie of the Year Award, to the Undead individual who has made [...]
