‘Love Automatic’ Video ‘Nightmare’: A ZRC Review

| June 20, 2011

There doesn’t seem to be a ton of information about new band ‘Love Automatic‘ on the intertubes yet, but they have a video out now that is making its way around the horror scene: The ultimate experience in clay stop-motion animated grueling terror. Ghosts, spooks, undead zombies, ghouls, sexy lady and not to mention a [...]

‘Zombie Ninjas’ Music Video Slightly Innovative But Still Anti-Zombie

| May 30, 2011

The ZRC was linked to this video on Twitter and it provoked mixed reactions. It’s basically catchy pop-culture infused nerd rap-rock and quite easy to listen to, and Zombie Ninjas are at least somewhat novel. However, in spite of these fictional Zombies from the song apparently being stealthy superpowered action heroes, they’re also very stereotypical [...]

Pop-Music ‘Bees and Zombies’ by Rebecca Loebe Attempts to Tie Zombies to Colony Collapse Disorder, Failed Romance

| May 26, 2011

Honestly, is there any undesired phenomenon that people won’t try to tie to Zombies and some sort of apocalypse? Case in point, a new song/video by Rebecca Loebe entitled ‘Bees and Zombies’ that mixes the worrisome global decline in honeybee populations with struggling romance and the Zombie Apocalypse: Just check out some of these lyrics: [...]

EMI Claims Ownership of Wisconsin Capitol?

| May 16, 2011

Here at the ZRC, we take intellectual property seriously. Note that I don’t say ‘copyright’, I say intellectual property, and there’s a good reason for that distinction. Intellectual property is the precious commodity of creative thought and copyright is an antiquated and abusive system to try and guarantee payment for the use of said commodity. [...]

Stop Whatever You’re Doing and Watch the ‘Rigamortis: A Zombie Love Story’ Trailer

| May 16, 2011

We got linked to this trailer for an upcoming Zombie Musical (yes, really!) on Twitter and it seriously blew our minds. What to think about ‘Rigamortis: A Zombie Love Story’? Well, the best way I can describe it is Dr. Horrible meets Zombies. And it looks seriously Zombie Friendly! The story: After humanity quells an [...]

‘Enough Blood to Keep ‘Em Coming’ Video Surprisingly Zombie Tolerant

| May 13, 2011

Given the title I was hesitant to see this video but it actually comes across as pretty Zombie Tolerant. Despite the title, it isn’t about killing Zombies at all; nor is the song itself, so far as I can tell from a couple of listens, about Zombies either. But the video for said song is [...]

‘Zombina and the Skeletones’

| May 5, 2011

I was informed about ‘Zombina and the Skeletones’ on Twitter and then kind of forgot to follow up on it until now, which just shows… err.. how busy I am with many other ZRC projects, yes. Perhaps a tiny bit unfortunately for the ZRC’s mandate, despite the name of the band, we’re not dealing with [...]

Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer, Ben Folds, Damian Kulash and ‘The Problem With Saints’ and Zombies

| May 2, 2011

Here’s a bit of an roundabout way to get the ZRC talking about Zombies. Neil Gaiman and some very talented friends set out to make an album in 8 hours; 8 songs, hence the band name of ’8in8′. The project was surprisingly successful, though it was as frequently observed only 6 songs in 12 hours, [...]

‘Zombie Delight’ by Buck 65 is Anything But

| March 25, 2011

Congratulations, Jonathan Coulton, you’re off the hook; someone made an even more offensive and hateful Anti-Zombie music video. I’m kidding of course; he’s not off the hook. But the rest, sadly, is true, as a band called ‘Buck 65′ has decided that the best way to make a big name for themselves is on the [...]

‘The Kidney Stones’ Band’s Anti-Zombie Prejudice Almost as Painful as the Condition They’re Named After

| February 15, 2011

Well, the trend of Anti-Zombie music videos sadly stumbles forward with this new video from a band going by the name ‘The Kidney Stones’. Perhaps they chose the name to indicate how grueling it would be to watch their hateful video products, who can say? If so, at least an effort was made to warn [...]
