Zombie ‘Dress Up’ Wall Decals

| February 29, 2012

I’m always looking for more Zombie products but I don’t think this one qualifies as Zombie Friendly. Are your plain walls taunting you? Declare war on your boring space with the Zombie Dress Up Decals from the NeatoShop. This fantastic set of 11 removable and reappliable fabric wall decals includes: One human Two Zombie Heads [...]

‘Z Magazine’, a Magazine Written BY Zombies, For Zombies? Well, Kind of…

| February 28, 2012

We’ve been trying to advance a Zombie Friendly perspective here for some time at the ZRC, imagining, and of course working toward, a more integrated, peaceful future for both the Living and the Undead. And of course, since we live in a consumer-oriented, capitalist society, that will undoubtedly involve marketing and selling products FOR Zombies. [...]

‘Shit Not to Say to Zombies’ from the ‘Run for Your Lives 5k’ People

| February 28, 2012

You’ve heard about their Anti-Zombie fitness event, but did you know that the ‘Run for Your Lives’ 5k race people have a Youtube channel? And that they do some (admittedly above-average but still offensive) Anti-Zombie comedy? Check it out (warning: some language and situations may not be family friendly): I have to say, some of [...]

‘Run for Your Lives’? Excuse Us?

| February 27, 2012

Increasingly we’re seeing an interest in making fitness ‘fun’ and modern. Some of the ideas floated to do so are inclusive and potentially quite Zombie Friendly, like Fitocracy, which ZRC pal Michelle Hartz got me into recently. Others are decidedly less so, from outdoor experience camps for kids to, well, a 5k run that involves [...]

Anti-Zombie Boot Camp in the UK Starts Soon

| February 27, 2012

Well, we’ve seen Anti-Zombie camps for kids and such here in the US, but what if you’re an adult who wants to learn how to brutalize the innocent, unsuspecting Undead population with military precision? Or what passes for it in a few hours of training? And what if you live in the UK, and want [...]

AMC Fuses New and Old Media to Defame Zombies

| February 26, 2012

Every time I think, ‘That’s it, there’s no way The Walking Dead can get worse’, AMC finds a way to innovate. Gotta give those devils credit (no offense to actual devils): CHARLESTON, W.Va. — When AMC’s “The Walking Dead” returned for the second half of its season on Feb. 12, viewers were greeted with an [...]

‘Resident Evil’ Gets a Violent Manga Adaptation

| February 26, 2012

And it’s not the first one either, apparently: This isn’t a Resident Evil first, as RE has already seen manga iterations. This latest one is set in a prestigious Asian institution, located on an isolated island. When there’s a zombie outbreak, Chris Redfield is sent into investigate. How many isolated laboratories in remote locales ARE [...]

Another Short Break Brought to You by Toshiba

| February 25, 2012

So my main ZRC laptop has again decided it wants to die, and I need to take a few days to try and coax it off the ledge. In the meantime I have posts scheduled for the blog through Wednesday, and can be reached via email if there’s a Zombie Emergency. I may even be [...]

CNN Blog Fearmongers About Zombies

| February 25, 2012

Another day, another pop-journalism story about the supposed menace posed by the peaceful Zombie Community: Look at you, all plump and fleshy, with a quickening pulse and body jam-packed with sweet meats. That brain of yours, with the scrumptious gray matter and thinking cap makes certain re-animated corpses crave a dining bib. So what are [...]

It’s Apparently Legal to Attack Either Atheists, Zombies, or Both in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

| February 25, 2012

We’ve attended a lot of Halloween events for the ZRC, and seen some political protesting done at them (as well as participated ourselves, like when we took picket signs and a megaphone to Elgin last October). Generally speaking, Halloween is a chance to make a statement, and sometimes those statements (and naturally the costumes that [...]
