Think Geek Has Sale on Adorable Zombie Plushies

| June 21, 2011

Sure, the way that noted Anti-Zombie merchants at Think Geek may have chosen to market this product is highly unethical, but the ZRC would be remiss if we failed to inform you that cuddly Zombie (and Vampire) plush toys are currently on a major sale: $17.99 (save 56%) On Sale $7.99 In stock I have [...]

Using the Zombie Apocalypse to Promote Smartphone Apps?

| June 4, 2011

Talk about selling people on a Tiger Rock. Yeesh: It’s reasonable to think that cell phones would survive the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. We’ll call “immediate aftermath” one week.

Thankstaking Day News Roundup

As mentioned on the blog, we here at the ZRC spent the Thankstaking Day holiday relaxing and forcing ourselves to slog through Romero ‘classic’ films. Due to technical issues with Dawn of the Dead, we only got through Night and Dawn, missing the trifecta with Day. Not bad for refreshing the old memory though, plus [...]
