Auction Update!

| March 22, 2011

It’s time to update the blog with the auction status and show some really awesome new items that came in yesterday. ZRC Facebook pal and Sometimes-Nemesis (let’s be honest) Anthony G. Sumner, Director of ‘III Slices of Life’ and ‘By Her Hand, She Draws You Down’ sent us some really neat stuff to sell for [...]

More Anti-Zombie Bigotry at Hot Topic

| March 22, 2011

When I first heard about this ‘Night of the Living Grover’ shirt, I considered the possibility that it was a satirical look at Zombie prejudice, or, perhaps, the creeping kiddie-indoctrination menace that is Sesame Street. (I kid, I kid; don’t worry, Andrew, I haven’t gone Tea Party on you.) However, they give away the game [...]

Light Posting Today Due to Nefarious Crime

| March 22, 2011

So, due to my stupidity as much as anything else, our car was ransacked last night. Dealing with the fallout today means that posting will be a bit light. The Auction, however, proceeds as planned, and we’ll have more stuff and more information later on that!

Controversial Movie ‘III Slices of Life’ Now Available On Demand

| March 21, 2011

We’ve written extensively about the hit independent horror anthology ‘III Slices of Life’ before here at the ZRC; we reviewed it under a previous title, ‘Slices of Life’, attended the World Premiere in Chicago at the Portage Theatre, and have conducted considerable outreach to director Anthony Sumner and one of the stars of the film, [...]

4th Annual Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl

| March 21, 2011

Now this is an interesting event and a good chance for some outreach: The Chicago Zombie Pub Crawl will return for its fourth consecutive year on Saturday, April 30, 2011, and will once again take place in the neighborhood of Andersonville. The event is an annual fundraiser for pH Productions, the not-for-profit Chicago comedy theater [...]

Zombies Don’t Need This Kind of Help

| March 20, 2011

Google pointed me toward this Opinion piece in the Ottawa Citizen by one Roger Collier today, which purports to reexamine the negative attitudes so many hold toward Zombies. Only of course, it does no such thing. The first clue was in the title: ‘Zombies were people, too.’ (The capitalization is in the original, and I [...]

Chart of ‘Zombie Stats’ Spreads Fear With Analysis of Fearmongering Movies

| March 20, 2011

This chart linked by the Horror Society illustrates almost everything that’s wrong with the Anti-Zombie Mainstream Media: the fixation on violent approaches to problem solving, the use of retribution at the expense of reconciliation, past mayhem justifying future slaughters, and of course, Max Brooks’ faux-academic Living Supremacist ravings; all are on display. Truly it is [...]

Join the ZRC ‘Horde for Humanitarian Aid’ Today!

| March 20, 2011

Here at the ZRC we’re trying to take back the term ‘Zombie horde’ for Zombies. Zombie collective action is no different from Living collective action, and we’ve learned just how vital working together is here in Madison over the last several weeks. At the same time, like the rest of the world, we here at [...]

Help Fund a Zombie-Inclusive Wedding

| March 20, 2011

Our long-time conversant and occasional ideological sparring partner Stuart Conover over at BuyZombie has a request that I think we all should look into helping out with: Help Me Win A Zombie Wedding I try not to ask for much on this site so when I do I hope you know that I’m really hoping [...]

A Zombie Friendly Burger Restaurant?

| March 19, 2011

Here’s a slightly lighter, and brighter, bit of news out of Iowa about a potentially Zombie Friendly restaurant: Chef George Formaro announced plans Friday to open Zombie Burger + Drink Lab in the East Village part of downtown Des Moines. … Formaro said he’s been a fan of horror movies his whole life. “If I [...]
