Zombie Cultural Appreciation Month

So it seems that we have an online counterpart in the Anti-Zombie camp, namely the Zombie Research Society. They model themselves as a research organization dedicated to protecting the public from a nefarious threat. That threat? Why, the ‘Zombie pandemic’, of course.

The Zombie Research Society has a number of pieces up covering aspects of this ‘pandemic’, the ‘threat’ posed by Undead Americans, and various grisly projections and quasi-scientific and historical investigations into the subject. Particularly interesting is their ‘Outbreak Map’ page, which attempts to tie any number of historical tragedies/unexplained calamities to an Undead cause. The Mayans? Apparently eaten by zombies. Roanoke? Zombies. You get the idea.

The Zombie Research Society has decided to designate May ‘Zombie Awareness Month’, and use a grey ribbon campaign to raise public awareness of the threat they claim emanates from the Differently Animated.

May is Zombie Awareness Month.

Many films important to the evolution of the modern zombie are set in the month of May, from the original Night of the Living Dead, 1968, to the well received Dawn of The Dead remake of 2004.

Also, because Spring naturally brings with it a sense of renewal and hopefulness, May is the perfect month to emphasize continued vigilance in the face of the coming zombie pandemic.

Vigilance? How about respect? Tolerance? What’s so funny about peace, love and understanding?

The ZRC cannot let this go unanswered. We have therefore decided to declare, contra the Zombie Research Society, that May 2010 will be ‘Zombie Cultural Appreciation Month’. Throughout the month of may the ZRC will highlight positive contributions of Zombies and their allies to the larger human society, especially contributions in art, culture and philanthropy.

Stay tuned to the ZRC for more details.

    In accordance with my study, after a in foreclosure process home is marketed at a bidding, it is common for any borrower to still have the remaining balance on the mortgage loan. There are many loan companies who aim to have all expenses and liens cleared by the subsequent buyer. Even so, depending on particular programs, restrictions, and state laws and regulations there may be some loans which are not easily solved through the exchange of financial loans. Therefore, the obligation still lies on the customer that has received his or her property in foreclosure process. Thank you sharing your ideas on this web site.
