The ZRC Actually Consumes a Resident Evil Energy Drink

| December 5, 2015

Well.. the ZRC President does, that is. Namely me. See, I saw this thing on a shelf in the mall once some time ago and, well, you know that urge to jump one sometimes gets in very high places? So after a tough month in November with non-activism related work, your ZRC President thought an [...]

Hasbro Now Marketing Living Supremacist NERF Guns, Crossbow

| February 24, 2014

Yes, you read that correctly; the makers of foamy toy weapons that have endeared themselves to generations of young people (including myself, at one time) have decided to jump into the lucrative market of catering to those afraid of Zombies. In the process, of course, they help to indoctrinate the next generation against the Undead. [...]

Zombie Exploitation as an Industry

| January 9, 2014

A fascinating infographic was forwarded to us recently by ZRC pal and Zombie Friendly Author (or perhaps, with the move into audiobooks, Auteur) Michelle Hartz (PHZ). The economic implications are particularly interesting from the ZRC perspective. If these figures are correct, bashing Zombies is a billion dollar plus annual industry. That is quite the juggernaut [...]

Fancy New Dead Island Edition Can’t Hide Anti-Zombie Prejudice

| January 14, 2013

So there’s a new version of ‘Dead Island’ coming out and boy does it have a lot of tchotchkes that come with it: Let’s be honest a zombie hula girl is enough to sell anyone on this even if it wasn’t just one of the more fun zombie games out there. If not the severed [...]

Corporate Logos, ‘Re-Imagined for the Zombie Apocalypse’

| December 11, 2012

I’m not sure about the likelihood of major corporate re-branding during any ‘Apocalypse’; it seems like they’d have better things to do than roll out an ad campaign in the midst of a national crisis. Then again, American Apparel was stupid enough to do just that for Hurricane Sandy, so perhaps my suspicion is unwarranted? [...]

Discovery Channel Teams Up with Dr. Schlozman to Peddle Zombie Apocalypse Fears

| December 8, 2012

Well, this is truly a disheartening example of media pandering: Discovery Channel has ordered the documentary special Zombie Apocalypse, which examines whether a walking dead-style invasion is actually possible and introduces a quartet of people from various backgrounds who are readying themselves, just in case. Sigh… Really, Discovery Channel? You’re pushing Living Supremacism on an [...]

Fearful, Misguided Nation Stocking Up on Weapons in Fear of the Undead?

| December 8, 2012

Truly a sad story comes to us from the Huffington Post (although for inexplicable reasons they seem to think it’s funny rather than sad): My reports that, according to FBI data, background checks for guns rose 20 percent on Black Friday from the same day last year. According to KIRO, one gun rights advocate [...]

No End to ‘Walking Dead’ Merch

| October 11, 2012

You’ve probably seen those ultra-cheap Jakks Pacific games in the toy aisles at your local big box store, the sort that plug into a TV using old-fashioned RCA cables (red, yellow, white) for a quick gaming experience sans the usual console. Usually they’re compilations of old 8-bit games, and often they come with a specialized [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign at Horrorhound

| September 10, 2012

That was a brisk weekend of outreach for the ZRC! Special thanks to ZRC pal Michelle Hartz, author of ‘Brains for the Zombie Soul‘, for capably operating our booth on Friday while I was otherwise detained learning about contracts and such. Zombies need contracts too, right? Horrorhound was of course inundated with Zombie-related media, and [...]

So Now Stick Figures are Supposedly Targets?

| August 2, 2012

We’ve come down with the cold to end all colds here at the ZRC Compound so it might be affecting my cognitive reasoning. I grant that. Still, I can’t see the point of this at ALL: Better Run, Better Run! These Zombies are hungry and their ready to eat that stick family on the back [...]
