It has happened, the zombie apocalpse has arrived… in the form of a board game. About three weeks ago we introduce the Indienation listeners to the Creators of Zpocalypse. We have finally managed to film our Box Breaking on this great game.
Take a look.
New Zombie Film Describes as Mad Max plus Zombies!
I must warn you I am extremely biased on this one. First, I love Boing! Boing! Second, I love Cory Doctorow who pointed this one out in a post at Boing! Boing! I love independent film. I also loved Mad Max and I love zombie movies… Admit it, even if they are bad, they are still good.
So how could an independent-indie-go-go-funded-zombies-meets-Mad-Max movie ever go wrong? Well, when I first got wind of this, they still needed some kick starter cash and, by the time of this draft, they reached their goal. I guess that means at least a few others feel the same way.
Jame Gunn (screenwriter of Dawn of the Dead, and director of Slither) stops by The Midnight Spookshow to talk about writing for the new video game, Lollipop Chainsaw! James also shares stories from his Troma days and joins in on the Great Zombie Debate of 2012!

Save the damsel in distress from the 9 blood-thirsty Zombies who are preparing to turn her into one of their own walking dead. Players take turns rolling a bomb ball toward the Zombie pins. The goal is to knock over the Zombies and keep the damsel standing. Easy to play. Wonderful high-quality wooden hand painted pieces are included. A bloody good game.
This one is everywhere but it is still rather entertaining news. I first got word of it over at TechDirt and soon after at Slashdot. It seems that an author over at The Center for Disease Control and Prevention got rather creative and post an article about how to prepare for a zombie apocalypse. The article opens as follows:
There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.
The post also includes photos, a brief history of zombies, and really looks pretty darn good for a government blog. The article is actually about general disaster preparedness and, in my humble opinion, made a rather dry topic somewhat entertaining.

zombie (Haitian Creole: zonbi) can be either a fictional undead monster or a person in an entranced state believed to be controlled by a bokor or wizard.
Zombies became a popular device in modern horror fiction, largely because of the success of George A. Romero’s 1968 film Night of the Living Dead and they have appeared as plot devices in various books, films and in television shows. Zombie fiction is now a sizeable sub-genre of horror, usually describing a breakdown of civilization occurring when most of the population become flesh-eating zombies – a zombie apocalypse. The monsters are usually hungry for human flesh, often specifically brains. Source : Wikipedia
Also there is someone known as ZombieGurl (me) that sometimes comes out late at night,searching for brainnnnnnnnnnnns but don’t fear I’m harmless just give me a hug and your brain will be safe… maybe ;) My first fascination with Zombies came from the song bleeder by Zombie Girl source : youtube also there are many video games Resident Evil, Silent hill are 2 of my favorite zombie games that have the famous zombies in them in all their wonderful gruesomeness. Have you ever wondered what would you do if you woke up to your street being full of zombies moaning for brainnnnnnnsss??? “Things to ponder”
