What would zombies do?

In a heat wave situation like Maine's got going on right now? I mean, multiple days in the high 80s degrees at 90% humidity has to play hell on the ol' putrefaction, no? I suppose that's one unintended benefit of global warming: when the inevitable zombie apocalypse arrives, they'll all rot to ineffectual bits and pieces that much faster because it's so dang hot out.

Speaking of zombie bits and pieces, have you heard about these?

Never Slow Dance with a Zombie - a YA book by E. Van Lowe. I haven't read it yet nor really know anything about it, but I've seen some good reviews and really, do you need to know more than what the title tells you with this one? No, you don't. Go read it and tell me what you think.

There's a new bar in Minneapolis: Donny Dirk's Zombie Den. The bartenders dress like Shaun from Shaun of the Dead, complete with white shirt, red tie and bloodstains. It's apparently in a kind of rough neighborhood but I'm seeing positive reviews pop up on the interwebs.

Zombie Girl: the Movie is streaming for free on Hulu and SnagFilms, for the next couple of days or so anyway. This is a documentary about this twelve year old girl who is making a feature length, gory, shuffling zombie movie called Pathogen. I have got to get on seeing this - and so should you!

(Thanks to Pop Candy for the last two links, btw.)

And finally, I found this site which is really an amazing clearinghouse for all things zombie: The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse, of course.


  1. I may have to go to Minneapolis for a funeral in the very near future (one of Tara's relatives) so maybe I'll drop by DDZD. Sounds like more fun than the funeral.

  2. It does look like a great, kitchy bar - I wish it'd been open when I was in Mnpls a year or so ago.

  3. You could ask your cousin, Will, to check it out and report back.....

  4. Great idea, but I don't think Will has ANY time for bars these days!!!!
