Camera Salvage

| September 30, 2010

Having lost the treasured ZRC camera got me to looking through the files still remaining on its flash card and I remembered a couple of videos I took at the RE: Afterlife event, so I’m putting those up here in lieu of much bloggery today. Short story is, I cleaned out the storage room we [...]

Camera, We Hardly Knew Ye

| September 29, 2010

Today I accidentally destroyed the ZRC’s lovely Canon Powershot ‘go anywhere’ camera, the one we take to conventions and all over the Midwest generally, in our quest for Undead Equality. That’s a real bummer. It wasn’t even on a Zombie-related errand either; just normal carelessness. And so tonight we mourn a very useful and fairly [...]

Zombie Blood and Jerky For Sale?

| September 28, 2010

What follows is one of the most awful and appalling things we’ve ever seen here at the ZRC. I have to warn our sensitive readers that the matters discussed behind the cut are extremely disturbing, nauseating and appalling. Reader discretion is advised.

Followup to Lurch for the Cure Auction: Thank You Letter from Lynn Sage

| September 28, 2010

Due to a complications from the ZRC headquarter’s recent move, this particular piece of good news got lost in the mail for quite a while, but here it is, at last: So to any and all who donated to the auction, or purchased fine items from the auction, here’s the proof that The Zombie Rights [...]

Zombie Kickball and Insensitive Media Coverage

| September 27, 2010

I was forwarded a link to this video from a Zombie Kickball event in 2008, and was struck by a couple of things. First, the trend toward greater public participation and large social gatherings of Zombies has been growing for some time. While in some areas, particularly Chicago, it is now commonplace for there to [...]

Fall Planning

| September 26, 2010

Sorry about the lack of new updates the last couple of days; I had some serious cramming to do for a non-Zombie Rights project in my other life, and then tonight we had a social function, again not Zombie related. Shocking, I know. The ZRC is of course getting excited for our Fall calendar of [...]

Zombie Day in Chicago This Weekend

| September 22, 2010

No, it’s not an official city government recognition of the contributions of the Undead to society, though we’re hoping that will come soon. Rather, it’s a day of Zombie Friendly events in and around the good old Portage Theatre, brought to you by the Chicago Horror Film Festival. There’s going to be a Zombie Walk/Solidarity [...]

An Open Letter to Stephen Notley

| September 20, 2010

Mr. Notley, As a long-time reader of Bob the Angry Flower I can recall your announcement some time ago that you had obtained employment at PopCap Games, well known for their puzzle adventures involving jewels and what not. Perhaps the delightful insanity from your signature comic strip could even be captured in an interactive form [...]

Yet More Anti-Zombie Manga Comes to U.S.; What is Japan’s Beef with the Undead, Anyway?

| September 20, 2010

The Anti-Zombie products seem to be coming out of the Far East in waves lately: The North American publisher Vertical has announced at its Anime Weekend Atlanta panel on Sunday that it licensed the Velveteen & Mandara (Becchin to Mandara) manga by Jiro Matsumoto. The story centers around Velveteen (Becchin), a high school girl who [...]

Resident Evil on Cell Phones

| September 19, 2010

This is just a quick post to note something that came across the ZRC desk recently while doing research for the Resident Evil pamphlet: Resident Evil has arrived on cell-phones in Japan. Capcom created a new Resident Evil game just for mobile phones. But, Biohazard: Survival Door is quite different from other Resident Evil games. [...]
