Google poem: “When Should I Expect the Zombie Apocalypse?”

Posted by Cory Casciato On April - 21 - 2010

Photo by Maccio Capatonda

When should I expect the zombie apocalypse?

Halliburton can profit from zombies.

Russia says it has zombies.

Obama punches zombie,

had a dream that my wife was a zombie,

Can’t find Plants vs. Zombies T-shirts!

Zombies in the news,

Mexican zombie wrestlers from outer space!

I believe that a zombie apocalypse is beginning.

Zombies are becoming reality via H1N1 shots. Be prepared. These are the end days.

That slice of genius is an original poem on the imminent 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 last thirty days. 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, but given the whimsical nature of the poem, I felt a zombie kitty was appropriate. Besides, when else am I going to get a chance to use a zombie kitty picture?

It’s official: Zombieland will get a sequel and it will be in 3D. Director Ruben Fleischer is signed on to return, the writing team behind the original (Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick) is already at work and talks are in progress for stars Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg to return. (Variety)

The voice cast for the upcoming animated prequel Night of the Living Dead: Origins is coming together. The latest report on the matter names six actors –  Jesse Corti, Danielle Harris, Bill Moseley, Joe Pilato, Alona Tal and Cornell Womack — but not the previously mentioned Mos Def. Hopefully that’s just an oversight. (The Hollywood Reporter)

The Onion News Network reported on the GOP’s latest effort to find a new face — Zombie Reagan. (Note: If you are unfamiliar with The Onion, it is satire.) The video is embedded for you after the break. (The Onion)

There’s not a ton of new info in it, but if you’re breathlessly following every development in the upcoming Undead Labs MMOZ game, here’s another generality filled interview with lead Jeff Strain. (The Feed)

If you’ve been following the community-developed game The Zombie Game Experiment, then you’ll be glad to hear AI middleware developers Xaitment have donated their AI tools. (Zombie Command)

If you’ve always wanted a cutesy, 6″ tall zombie figurine/toy and have $40 to spend, your day has finally come. Pocket Zombies are here. (Dread Central)

If you love comics, pro wrestling and zombies, man are you going to love this. (Zombie Command)

The apocalypse-loving folk of Quiet Earth are digging the short film Plague and have made it available to watch online. You can watch it after the break here, where I have embedded it, if you hate clicking on other sites. (Quiet Earth)

Did you love REC? Do you get excited by news about movie posters and debunked rumors? Then these Italian REC 2 one-sheets and info about the now-debunked REC 3 website should thrill you to no end. (Dread Central)

This one is firmly in the rumor category, but the heretofore unknown (to me) blog Pajiba says JJ Abrams is working on a top-secret project called 500 Rads, and it may be a zombie movie. Considering Abrams was near the top of my list of my most-wanted zombie filmmakers, this makes me happy. Even if it isn’t true. (Pajiba)

Witches coven gets burnt up, witches coven reanimates as skeletal zombies to seek a pregnant woman carrying a demon baby. Sounds fun. It’s Demon Resurrection, and it’s available now. Oh, and Pontypool is hitting DVD everywhere January 26 (it’s available now, for rental at Blockbuster only). (Fangoria)

IFC continues to secure its spot as the go-to publisher for zombie movies, as they pick up US distribution for The Horde, a recent French zombie flick. (Dread Central)

Tomorrow is Zombie Reaction Day, a collaborative/social media project where you film yourself reacting to the zombie apocalypse. (Shared Creation Projects)

Alien parasites resurrect the dead, the military conspires to weaponize it and scientist accidentally unleashes it on the neighborhood, creating the cannibal zombie hordes we love so much in Evilution, coming to DVD November 17. Trailer embedded after the break. (28 Days Later: An Analysis)

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!
