‘Keep Calm and Crack Skulls’ Really? Seriously?

| August 17, 2011

Lately we’ve been seeing a lot of the modern re-imaginings of the ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ image from World War II. Here in Madison it was very readily taken up by the protesters and used on all sorts of things, for example. Ironically enough, despite its relatively recent and immense popularity, it never served [...]

Hot Topic Again Goes After the Differently Animated

| July 28, 2011

Ok, seriously, for a mall store catering to teenagers who don’t know what a well-printed t-shirt looks like, Hot Topic is managing to push a lot of ZRC buttons. We’ve talked previously about their Anti-Zombiism on the blog, but this shirt really makes it official: Killing zombies may sound like fun, but after a while [...]

ZRC Reviews: ‘Zombie Equality’ T-Shirt

| June 27, 2011

Finally, another positive thing to review! I was getting worried: This Ugly Americans shirt features a motivational poster style design seen in Mark Lilly’s office at New York City’s Department of Integration. The word Equality is printed below the image of a zombie and a human shaking hands. The ZRC has heard some good things [...]

‘Romero’s Diner’ Shirt Pushes Brain-Eating Fallacy Even in Absence of Brain-Eating

| June 18, 2011

The brain-eating myth about Zombies is very hard to combat, though we try here at The Zombie Rights Campaign. Simply put, the overwhelming majority of Zombies, whether in real life or in the biased media loosely based upon real life, are not fixated upon eating brain tissue. And as mentioned many times before on this [...]

‘Shaun of the Dead’ Shirt ‘The Plan’ Offensive but Film-Accurate

| June 2, 2011

Oh, ‘Shaun of the Dead’, also known as Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s gushing love letter to George Romero, has long been a thorn in the Zombie Community’s side for the way it trivializes and mocks the plight of the modern Zombie, as well as for the way it added fuel to the resurgence of [...]

‘Zombie Fitness’ Shirt

| June 2, 2011

Here at the ZRC we support Zombies staying in peak Undead shape, although I believe many varieties of the Undead don’t actually need exercise to do so; Baron Mardi stays in top physical condition with a rigorous alcohol poisoning regimen, for example. Still, Zombies vary widely, and for those of you who do require exercise [...]

‘In My Next Life I Want to Be a Zombie’ Shirt: Why Not in This One?

| May 27, 2011

I don’t mean to be too hard on this shirt, I think it tries hard and the core message is pretty Zombie Friendly: Still I have to ask, why can’t you be a Zombie in *this* life? Is it really that big a distinction that a person dies (briefly and temporarily) then comes back as [...]

Zombie… Candy Corn?

| May 25, 2011

Seriously? Seriously. So what happens when the zombie virus infects other species? We’ve seen zombie animals before but how about something else new and creative? Zombies infecting say, candycorn? A perfect Halloween treat! I’m not sure if this is a bizarre case of splashing Zombiism into everything or some demented but creative take on previous [...]

Zombie Triage Shirt (A ZRC Review)

| May 19, 2011

Oh how long it can be between Zombie Friendly products the ZRC gets to review, and how precious they are to us after a long day defending the Differently Animated from Vitality-Normative ideas, ideas like ‘A person has to have a heartbeat’ or ‘Undead people belong in cemeteries, right?’ Wrong. Just wrong! Fortunately those Zombie [...]

‘Zombie Killer’ Shirt Tries to Make Sport of Living Supremacist Violence

| May 17, 2011

Great, just what we need: scorekeeping for Anti-Zombie bigots and their acts of violence: Shirt: Zombie Killer Some people like to keep a tally of the number of things they do. Sometimes its how many women a guy has slept with, sometimes its how many men a woman has slept with, sometimes its how many [...]
