Fashion Zombie: How the world ends

Posted by Cory Casciato On February - 15 - 2010

Sure, we’ve all got our zombie apocalypse survival plans worked out, but does your plan account for a zombie army receiving air support from UFOs and pterodactyls, led by a vampire riding a Tyrannosaur? I didn’t think so. And that’s why today’s zombie shirt is so important, since it reminds us to consider extreme possibilities. Look at it this way: if you prepare for vampire-led, UFO & dinosaur supported zombie hordes, you’re going to be sitting pretty if the old-school, mindless gut-munchers are all that appear. Am I right?

You can get this fine shirt from Threadless any time, but if you buy it today (February 15, 2010) you can get it for the low, low price of $10. If you want to see it in action (i.e. on an actual shirt being worn by an actual person), you can find a pic after the break.

I’m attempting to assemble an all zombie-themed wardrobe. Fashion Zombie is my weekly post detailing the coolest zombie-themed clothes and accessories I can find. Check back every Monday for another look at the hottest zombie apparel.

Fashion Zombie: Obama vs the zombie

Posted by Cory Casciato On February - 8 - 2010

Few things in life are as awesome as a t-shirt featuring President Obama punching a zombie in the face. It’s the work of an Etsy designer who goes by the name of tinaseamonster (from an illustration by Chris Piers) and if you act now, you can probably order one of the latest batch before it sells out. Presumably, there will be more later, but why wait? She also has a bunch of other great zombie-themed stuff, so go check out her store.

My favorite zombie things

Posted by Cory Casciato On February - 4 - 2010

Today is the one-year anniversary of the site! So, to celebrate, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite zombie things — the stuff that I use, look at or think about every single day. I’m not going to cover my favorite movies, books or games here — those are amply covered in other posts and each of those categories is probably deserving of its own dedicated list. These are the other things — the little zombie accoutrements, ephemera and oddities that make every day in the Casciato household a zombie day. And consequently, many of the things that make my fiancée a little crazy (she does not love zombies).

Denver does zombies

Zombies in love

Zombies in love

I’m proud to say that my hometown of Denver, Colorado is quite a zombie town. We just had our fourth annual zombie walk (more than 4,000 attendees, if reports are to be believed) and, the very same day, there was a zombies’ engagement party.

What? Zombies need love, too.

Well, it turned out the zombie engagement party was actually an art show, but since it was largely horror and zombie themed art, it was still awesome. And I got some fine photos of both the party and the zombie walk. You can see some of the best of them, including a video slideshow of the zombie walk, after the break.

Google Poem: “I am the Walking Apocalypse”

Posted by Cory Casciato On October - 5 - 2009

cautionzombies

What is an apocalypse in the night of the living dead?

Zombies may be real.

Where will you be when the zombie apocalypse comes?

2012 Nazi zombie apocalypse,

doublebear zombie.

Are you ready for a zombie attack, Uncle Sam?

I am the walking apocalypse.

That slice of genius is an original poem on the nature of zombie apocalypse, courtesy of Google and you, the visitors of this site. What I’ve done is culled the most intriguing, poetic and weirdest search terms used to find this site in the month of September. I’ve added nothing but a bit of punctuation and a few capital letters. I also selected and organized the snippets, of course. Each line is a separate search term. The image is essentially unrelated, just something I found online a while ago. It seemed to fit. Enjoy!

Godzilla and an alien face the zombie apocalypse

Posted by Cory Casciato On September - 24 - 2009

Godzilla doesn’t really remember what it was like before the zombies came.

Occasionally, he will get a flash of memory, like the smell of juniper, or the sound of children in a swimming pool.

But it fades once the next bullet is fired.

Memory is a luxury.

The zombies come.

What can I possibly add to that? Nothing, that’s what. But I’ll tell you this: I wasted a good two hours on this guy’s Tumbr site, I am your Canadian Boyfriend, and I promise you you’ll see more of his stuff here at some point. You can also find this excellent cartoon in its original context here.

“What a Wonderful World” meets Left 4 Dead

Posted by Cory Casciato On August - 20 - 2009

This has been bouncing around the ‘nets for a day or so, and I finally got around to watching it, thus becoming inspired to share it with you fine people. Pretty funny stuff — the ironic juxtaposition between the song and the video is great and works amazingly well. It’s two minutes of zombie ridiculousness that will brighten your day!

Phone zombies from the ’80s

Posted by Cory Casciato On August - 17 - 2009

I don’t think I can add anything to this by talking about it, so I will just reiterate what Topless Robot said when they posted it: “the ’80s were super fucking weird. That is all.”

Whack-a-Zombie unboxed

Posted by Cory Casciato On August - 5 - 2009

From our friends at It’s Unboxed (they do unboxing videos of damn near anything) comes today’s slice of undead whimsy. What we have here is a short video documenting the unboxing of the novelty item Whack-a-Zombie, one of those inflatable punching bags with a sand-filled bottom some of us probably remember from our childhoods (if you were born between 1970 and 1985, I am sure you’ve seen these). This one, as you might guess, has a zombie on it. And, like real zombies, it can theoretically take a few shots and come back for more. See how it performs in the video above.

Real, Russian zombies? You be the judge!

Posted by Cory Casciato On July - 28 - 2009

Update: My knowledgeable commenters have informed me this is a viral video for the PC shooter S.T.A.L.K.E.R. but it is still fun and worth a watch. Nicely played, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. producers. Nicely played, indeed.

The video embedded above has been making the rounds of the Internets for a while now, and this is by no means the first zombie site to have featured it. But it’s pretty interesting and I’d be remiss in not putting it out there for my audience of zombie aficionados. The video purports to be footage of a man being chased and attacked by … something. Real-life zombies? Sure, why not! It’s shot from a helicopter, it would fit right into any zombie apocalypse movie you care to name and it’s well worth the forty-some seconds it will take to watch it. Is it real? Eh, Occam’s razor tells me it probably is some kind of promo for a Russian zombie movie or TV show, but who knows? It looks fairly convincing to my untrained eye. If it is real, I think I need to step up my zombie apocalypse plans to Defcon 3. What do you all think?
