Dr. Cancer and the SKAmbies in Pictures

| September 8, 2010

I apologize one last time for the quality of these shots, and rest assured I have resolved the issues (I think) in time for our big RE: Afterlife rally this Friday. No, the lights didn’t go out! This is what happens when funky fluorescent lights overwhelm a Canon Powershot’s automatic configurations. Here’s a better shot, [...]

Dr. Cancer and the SKAmbies

| September 7, 2010

The ZRC had the great pleasure of attending the Dr. Cancer and the SKAmbies concert on Sunday at Geek.kon, and as promised, here is a review of the show from the perspective of Zombie rights.

Geek.kon in Pictures

| September 7, 2010

I apologize in advance for the motes of dust visible in some of these shots; the camera lens apparently was badly in need of cleaning. Also odd in these photos is that my camera’s automatic configuration mode seems to have been driven slightly batty by the weird lighting in the Marriot (as were my eyes, [...]

Geek.kon Conclusion

| September 6, 2010

Well, that was a satisfying 3 days of activism indeed. Our last day in the Vendor area went quite well, and I’m happy to report that we sold completely out of Zombie Strong wristbands. That’s a ‘nice problem to have’, as they say on Metalocalypse. We’re going to put in a new order, eh, probably [...]

Geek.kon Day 2 Redux

| September 4, 2010

First of all, I finally got around to verifying the proper spelling of the con, and it’s apparently Geek.kon. I’ve seen it other ways on other forms, and for some reason had fallen into the habit of writing it as “Geek-Kon” If this has caused immense personal hardship to anyone I deeply apologize. So, how [...]

Geek-Kon Day 2

| September 4, 2010

The first day of Geek-Kon was a big success, and we had a number of positive conversations and some great outreach to members of the Madisonian geek community. Today’s schedule is a hectic one – we’re getting started at our booth a bit late so I can hit Staples for some sign-making supplies, because tonight [...]

Vegetarian Zombies Make Someone’s Day – But Should They?

| September 4, 2010

Here at the ZRC we of course encourage people to encourage Zombies to participate more fully in public activities. So this IMMD post about a citizen being delighted to see Zombies at a vegetarian restaurant is in part a heartening one. Yet here the author still indulges in Zombie stereotyping. Never seen a vegetarian Zombie [...]

Geek-Kon Starts Today

| September 3, 2010

Come visit The Zombie Rights Campaign booth at Geek-Kon; we’re located in the Vendor’s Room, since there’s no room for civil rights lobbies per se. Plus we will have stuff to sell! Lurch for the Cure shirts, wrist-bands and the like, so on and so forth. This convention we will also have a semi-limited supply [...]

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero Review

| September 2, 2010

Details below the cut, but a short version: from a Zombie Rights perspective, atrocious, insulting, disturbing. From a gaming perspective, limited, brief, at times frustrating, more of the same. Even if you hate Zombies and love videogames where you kill them (for some disturbed reason) there’s no particular reason to do it in this one.
