The Zombie Rights Campaign and Nightmare on Chicago Street 2012

| October 31, 2012

I apologize for the lateness of this update, Zombie Rights allies; a late arrival back in Madison, law school demands and even an internet outage delayed its writing and posting. Last Saturday we took our Zombie Rights advocacy on the road to Nightmare on Chicago Street, the second annual Elgin Halloween celebration (which we support) [...]

ZRC Rapid Response: Joss Whedon’s ‘Zomney’ Video

| October 29, 2012

The Zombie Rights Campaign has addressed the issue of Anti-Zombie bias in Joss Whedon’s work before, but I have to admit I didn’t think Mr. Whedon would air his Living Supremacist dirty laundry again in such a high-profile fashion, especially in a naked attempt to influence a major election. But he has. So let’s talk [...]

Join the ZRC as We ‘ZOMcupy’ Chicago Street!

| October 26, 2012

Last year The Zombie Rights Campaign was privileged to bring a Zombie Friendly perspective to the intimidatingly-awesome (yet Living Supremacist) event ‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’ in Elgin, IL. We wrote about that experience here, here, and here. ‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’, to refresh memories, is no ordinary Halloween party. No sir. It’s more like an [...]

Evil Dead Remake Seems Excessively Mean to the Differently Animated

| October 25, 2012

There’s a trailer out for the ‘Evil Dead’ remake and I have to say, it’s not looking good for the Differently Animated: Eww. All that graphic violence and scary music! And must we always throw around the word ‘Evil’ for Undead fellows who just happen to have been summoned via necromancy or demon magic? Why [...]

The Dark Carnival 2012

| October 23, 2012

The Zombie Rights Campaign has sadly attended its last Dark Carnival Film Festival in Bloomington, Indiana, this year, as the 2012 edition was the last that will be hosted in that fair city. We’ve been going to these things for a long time, even before the Zombie Rights Campaign started its bold mission to protect [...]

Back from The Dark Carnival 2012

| October 22, 2012

The Zombie Rights Campaign is back from The Dark Carnival and we survived the madness! Freaks, fire, movies, some of which were quite offensive. Lots of reviews and such coming soon, and I’ve been uploading HD videos to youtube today so we’ll have a full post for the blog, tomorrow hopefully. Then this Saturday: Nightmare [...]

The ZRC is at The Dark Carnival!

| October 20, 2012

We made it down to Bloomington, Indiana for the Dark Carnival… somehow. Our trip is a tale of woe! Long walks through rain and drizzle! Missed directions! A bridge out in small town Indiana! A detour through the set of Wrong Turn 8! When the ZRC arrived we discovered The Dark Carnival had arranged a [...]

Zombies, Equality and Institutional Discrimination in Insurance Sector

| October 16, 2012

Zombies as a community face a lot of trials in our contemporary society: open scapegoating and fearmongering from a hostile media, overtly violent attacks by Survivalists, governmental oppression. It’s also worth noting, however, the way private sector institutions discriminate against the Undead, depriving them of vital services. Case in point: Life Insurance. Clearly Zombies have [...]

OreZom Trails

| October 16, 2012

When I was a small child so long ago, far back in the mists of time, we had computers in our elementary school classrooms, and those computers had games. The game I remember most, as is true of many of my generation, was the famous ‘Oregon Trail’. In that game you play as the leader [...]

Another Scandal Involving Baron Mardi, former Zombie of the Year?

| October 13, 2012

In what I can only presume is an attempt to prepare Bloomington visitors and Dark Carnival attendees for their stay the Atomic Age Cinema crew have been posting ‘Getting to Know’ videos about each of the AAC members. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say. However the ZRC was alarmed by the video for our former [...]
