Enter For Chance to Keep an Anti-Zombie Board Game Off the Street!

| July 11, 2012

BuyZombie has a contest up where you can win the opportunity to keep a patently Anti-Zombie board game off the street. Clearly that’s the right thing to do, lest impressionable minds play this: Boo! You and your friends are suddenly surrounded by hordes of very aggressive zombies. But do not fret as we have some [...]

‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’ 2012 Date Announced! And We’ll Be There!

| July 11, 2012

And that date is: October 27th. We’ll definitely be back in Elgin this year to help spread the word about Zombie Friendliness and the Global Reanimation Block Party! Last year was after all a huge success. Even if there were a lot of tragic stereotypes to fight. Hey, any event where you get to pull [...]

Become a Zombie for.. Tax Purposes?

| July 9, 2012

In the ‘Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy’ series there is a minor rockstar character named Hotblack Desatio who spends time ‘dead for tax purposes’, a sort of tax exile where the legal status of being ‘deceased’ saves you money that would otherwise go to the government. I bring this up because, in a roundabout way, [...]

‘Anniversary Dinner’ Another Entry In the Zombie Spouse Sub-Genre?

| July 8, 2012

At The Zombie Rights Campaign we support a fully integrated society, Living and Undead working and prospering side by side. Naturally this would extend to full marriage rights for the Undead, and, perhaps more controversially, the right for a Zombie to marry the Living person of their choice (and vice versa). We know that supporting [...]

Et tu, Fred Van Lente?!

A ‘Zombie’ Perspective on ‘Run for Your Lives 5k’

| July 3, 2012

Naturally, the ‘Zombies’ for these Anti-Zombie events are actors recruited from the Living Community, but there is still valuable behind the scenes detail to be gleaned from this post on The Mary Sue: It was time to head out onto the course. We had all been assigned Zone 5, which was fortunately outfitted with shade [...]

Sims 3 Teams Up with Plants vs Zombies?

| July 2, 2012

The Art Director for the ZRC, loyal readers, is a huge Sims fan. Really huge. Though she’s currently playing Sims 2 as each game lasts her years (and Sims 3 has a really nasty compatibility bug with 64 bit laptops, actually). The Sims has long had interactions with the Undead, and indeed, the Art Director [...]
