No Zombie Apocalypse in 2013 – WE ARE OVERDUE!

March 7, 2014

Kyle Bishop figured it was risky when he applied to a University of Arizona Ph.D. program in English eight years ago by proposing a dissertation on zombie movies.

He was dead wrong.

The program approved Mr. Bishop’s proposal, and he is now chairman of Southern Utah University’s English department. The 40-year-old has been invited to give zombie lectures in Hawaii, Canada and Spain.

“It’s clearly now acceptable to study zombies seriously,” he says.

Just as zombies—those mythical revived corpses hungry for living human flesh and gray matter—have infiltrated pop culture, they have also gotten their hands on our brainiest reserves: the academy.

Mr. Bishop is among an advancing horde of scholars who, compelled by the cultural history and metaphor of the undead, are teaching and conducting research in disciplines from economics to religion to medicine.

The last five years have seen 20 new scholarly books with “zombie” in the title or topic category, according to Baker & Taylor, a distributor of academic and other books; in the 10 prior years, there were 10. JSTOR, an online archive of about 2,000 academic journals, says the journals have run 39 articles invoking the undead since 2005, versus seven in the preceding 10 years.

LAPD training Officers for the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse

December 7, 2013

Move over, “Walking Dead.” In a quest to take a bite out of crime, the LAPD’s Northeast Division has produced a new video, starring — what else? — zombies.

Cue a seven-minute homemade mini-movie of zombies marauding down a northeast Los Angeles street. The moaning zombies steal iPads and other items from parked cars in the videotaped public service announcement.

Cut to a couple in their living room. “Chad, the zombies are out again,” a woman tells a man reading a book, who acts matter-of-fact until the conversation turns to his car.

The nervous man yells to call 911, making a face like Shaggy in a Scooby-Doo cartoon before yelling about his baby — an apparent reference to his tablet or computer.

By now, four zombies are smashing car windows to grab computers and tablets left on car seats in plain sight.

A couple of LAPD officers roll up in a black-and-white. Stepping out of the cruiser, one declares, “Awesome, zombies!”

The officer then reappears with an item from the cruiser’s rear. “I’ve got the chainsaw, partner,” he says.

The campy video concludes with an image of a zombie’s arm lying in the street before Capt. Jeffrey Bert takes a few seconds to get serious.
“Year to date, 21,000 vehicles have been burglarized in the city of Los Angeles,” he warns, adding that that amounts to more than 400 a week. “You need to hide your valuables … if you are a pirate, your bag of jewels.”

In the shadow of Hollywood, the Northeast Division covers an area that includes Silver Lake, Highland Park, Eagle Rock and Mount Washington.

“Actually, we were just trying to reach people,” Bert said Monday. “My captain’s video on what crime is up or down registered 57 hits. In four days, this has recorded 2,600 hits and growing.”

“We said, ‘Let’s look at what pop culture does,’ ” Bert said. “Twenty million people watch ‘Walking Dead.’ Well, zombies work, and we decided to keep it pretty G-rated.”

Bert said a small army of volunteers and division officers came up with “Invasion of the Zombie Bandits.”

“It was a lot of donations. It helps when you have so many Hollywood people around,” Bert said.

One of Bert’s officers is also a Hollywood makeup artist, he says. And that made the zombies easy to create.

His adjutant, Officer Curtis Davis, is a screenwriter. Davis’ day job is partly to track crime across the division.

“He wrote the script and came up with ideas to make it a G-rated comic style,” Bert said. “I am not sure what people think about it. But people are checking it out.”

Are Zombies Real? Duh, Yes

‘Are Zombie Real?’ letter to the editor

Zombie Apocalypse would only last a week – (Yeah right)

October 24, 2013

Flesh is food – and the fresher the better. It’s something the zombies know. Probably the only thing, actually.
But what about their own dead – or rather, undead – flesh?
It’s carrion.
And that’s good news for the hipster tribes who spend weekends dressing up as zombies while worrying just what they would/will do if/when “Day of The Dead” actually arrives. If they survive that initial frenzy, they can sit back and watch Mother Nature do the rest.
US National Wildlife Federation naturalist David Mizejewski has put the matter into perspective, stating this planet’s fauna would deal with such animated evil “brutally, and without quarter.”
“Relax,” he writes. “Next time you’re lying in bed, unable to fall asleep thanks to the vague anxiety of half-rotten corpses munching on you in the dark, remember this: if there was ever a zombie uprising, wildlife would kick its ass.”
Birds, bears and even blowflies would be an unmatched arsenal against an army of mindless, moaning corpses like “The Walking Dead” – a relief for the hit TV show’s characters such as Rick Grimes.
But what is nature’s most secret weapon?
“It can obliterate a dead body in surprisingly little time,” Mizejewski said. “Mother Nature doesn’t let anything go to waste.”

Zombie Store for the inevitable Zombie Apocolypse

September 28, 2013

The owner of the newly opened Zombie Survival store in Florida said the shop carries everything a customer could need for an undead apocalypse.

Kurt Josephs, owner of the store in an Orlando strip mall, said the store’s wares include surplus supplies from the U.S. Army and Navy such as gas masks, books, camouflage gear, backpacks, machetes and MRE rations, the Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.

“Zombies get people excited,” Josephs said. “It’s a craze right now.”

The store offers zombie-related merchandise including zombie shooting targets that bleed when hit, zombie-related books, severed zombie heads, table cloths featuring fake blood-spatter and zombie garden gnomes.

“If you like zombies, we got zombie stuff for you,” Josephs said.

‘World War Z’ Becomes Brad Pitt’s Highest Grossing Film

‘World War Z’ eating up the box office

June 22, 2013

This weekend’ summer box office race has an unprecedented three films securing over $50 million in a single weekend. Pixar’s “Monster University” is expected to come in first, with $73 million. “Man of Steel,” already a hit after its monstrous opening last week, will come in third with $47 million.
The biggest surprise (and relief), though, is Brad Pitt’s “World War Z,” which is performing way beyond expectations, and will come in second.
