Zombies Less Interesting Than Robots? We’ll Have to Disagree

| June 28, 2012

Really I shouldn’t even be responding to this piece, since it’s not about Zombies at all except for a throwaway insult, but darn it, I felt insulted! While believing in fairy tale stories like mermaids and zombies can be fun, something even more exciting from stories that we love is becoming a reality. Robots. Really [...]

On ‘Doomsday Shelters’ and Zombies

| June 11, 2012

Well, our brief agreement with the Zombie Research Society has to come to a crashing end with their endorsement, once again, of a siege mentality when it comes to dealing with the inevitable emergence of the Undead as a large-scale demographic phenomenon. A literal siege mentality, actually: Now, after a slew of gory news reports [...]

After Fearmongering Against Our Zombie Clients, the CDC Denies They Exist?

| June 7, 2012

Remember last year when, with much fanfare, the CDC decided to try and scare America with Zombies, in the name of disaster preparedness? We sure do. We also remember when they had to start walking back their scare campaign in the face of.. people believing them, essentially. Well, now it’s come full circle, and the [...]

Irresponsible Internet Fearmongers Exploit Gruesome Tragedy to Promote Anti-Zombiism

| May 30, 2012

We’ve gotten a lot of tips about a recent Miami case involving a man whose face was, err, chewed off by his assailant. The assailant then resisted police even to the point of requiring several gunshots to finally subdue: According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face [...]

This is What Passes for Good Press? Shame on the NYT

| May 8, 2012

In a writeup about a new ‘Walking Dead’ videogame, the NYT talks about putting ‘guilt’ back in killing Zombies. Sadly, tragically, that might pass for good Zombie press, at least from the mainstream media: But what zombies! Taking an ax to the reanimated corpse of a character’s brother in the streets of Macon, or deciding [...]

Prague and Zombies

| May 7, 2012

We have another case here, I’m afraid, of the Anti-Zombie media putting a real negative spin on a fun Zombie event: PRAGUE, Czech Republic (CBS) — Prague’s historic city centre was taken over by hundreds of the walking dead in the annual festival the Zombie Walk on Saturday. It’s the fifth year for the event [...]

More ‘Zombie’ Fungus Stories

| May 5, 2012

Sigh. The mainstream press really won’t let up with this ‘call anything we don’t like or find creepy a Zombie’ routine. Case in point, the ‘Zombie ant’ saga continues as researchers find that the previous, allegedly ‘Zombie’ making fungus is itself parasitized by another fungus: For the first time, researchers have discovered how an ant [...]

“Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City”, “Yakuza: Dead Souls” and the Art of Missing the Point

| April 4, 2012

Two new, obviously vicious Anti-Zombie games are out this spring and the reviews are mixed, and unfortunately, miss the Zombie Rights angle entirely. Example: Play enough games and you learn some universal rules. An enemy’s weak spot is marked in red; purple items are poison; and zombies make any scenario better. It’s fact. The undead [...]

Another ‘Real Zombie Outbreak’ Story

| April 2, 2012

It really is sad on a number of levels that the Zombie Community is constantly besmirched by comparisons to various ailments and disorders affecting Living people by those sad individuals, especially online, who are always looking for the imminent downfall of civilization from Undead uprising: A weird disease spreading in Africa has health officials baffled—and [...]

‘Zombies, Run!’ Released and The Guardian Fearmongers About Our Clients

| April 1, 2012

We previously reported on the crowdfunding campaign for ‘Zombies, Run!’ here on the ZRC blog, but the app is out for download /purchase now, and The Guardian has a typically insensitive and cruel review up: It may seem odd that running is required to escape “the walking dead”, but an engaging story provides a better [...]
