Dr. McNinja Returns to Zombie Bashing

| August 27, 2010

It’s a shame when popular media properties turn to bashing Zombies as a way to boost ratings, or in this case pageviews, but it’s a phenomenon we here at the ZRC see all the time. Unlike your rare game, movie or novel that splashes in Zombie elements in an enlightened manner, discussing the plight of [...]

Zombie Walk Upgrade to Full-Scale Zombie Rights March

| August 26, 2010

This is an outstanding development in the Undead Equality arena: Come out to the theater dressed as a zombie or get your makeup done there by CREATURE DISTORTIONS and help protest the adverse treatment of zombies by staging a ZOMBIE RIGHTS MARCH. Yeah thats right! ZOMBIE RIGHTS! Break out those signs and let the world [...]

ZRC Direct Action: Chicago Area Zombie Walk on September 10th

| August 25, 2010

The Zombie Rights Campaign has been notified of a protest opportunity involving the new Resident Evil movie, RE: Afterlife, which comes out on September 10th; we previously discussed this technological leap forward in anti-Zombie cinema here. Our good friends at the Horror Society have teamed up with a local theatreplex that is (unfortunately) showing the [...]

Minneapolis Confirms Right to Dress As a Zombie; Is There a Right to BE a Zombie?

| August 24, 2010

This story is shocking and appalling on multiple levels: A few years ago, a group of people dressed up as zombies for a protest march and got arrested for it. When arrested at the intersection of Hennepin Avenue and 6th Street N., most of them had thick white powder and fake blood on their faces [...]

Hanna Is Not a Boy’s Name (But Is a Zombie Friendly Comic)

| August 23, 2010

The ZRC was recently asked for its take on a particular webcomic via twitter, immediately before the bombs fell/credit card theft and some other personal nightmares came up. Fortunately, we still had time to review the comic in question, Hanna Is Not a Boy’s Name, created and published by artist/author Tessa Stone, because it brought [...]

Zombie Friendly Shoelaces from Hot Topic

| August 21, 2010

Just a quick update to show off these spiffy Zombie-Friendly shoelaces from Hot Topic which the ZRC had the chance to pick up for about 4 dollars the other day. Spiffy, huh? It’s good to see a retailer that’s willing to sell Zombie related merchandise that doesn’t glorify or revel in Romero-style anti-Zombie violence. Good [...]

Rifftrax: Reefer Madness

| August 21, 2010

Not much to say about our trip to the latest Rifftrax the other day; unlike Plan 9 it isn’t obviously relevant to Zombie Rights stuff… except for a couple of quick Zombie jokes inserted into the show. Really, I’m beginning to wonder if the Rifftrax people have some deep-seated psychological problems with the Undead. On [...]

Back to Normal

| August 21, 2010

Just a quick note to say that the ZRC is back in business. Our personal distractions have been dealt with, and access to various internet goodies has been restored. Huzzah for credit card fraud protection and all that. In other news, your ZRC President’s family was in town over the weekend, which also helped contribute [...]


| August 18, 2010

Remember how I promised there would be updates, plural, today? Not so much, though I’m working on a few things. Here’s how we spent our day here instead of on Zombie Rights: This morning while picking up the last of the yardwork supplies my credit card, which had plenty of room on it, got declined. [...]

Landscaping (of the Dead)

| August 18, 2010

So the light posting of late has been hard to miss, Z-fans. There are several reasons for this, and I’m eager to share our secret projects with you, but I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a bit longer on the disclosure. I apologize. One thing I can mention however is that for the last few [...]
