Zombies

But What About The Zombies?

It’s time for zombie time!

Whenever we describe our blog to someone, we usually suffix our description with “…and zombies!”, and we know what you’ve all been thinking: where the hell are those zombies?!

It’s been ages since we’ve talked about anything zombie related. It’s just been cheese, cheese, cheese, which is fine and all, but sometimes you need some zombies to keep you on your toes. When you think about it, if milk was a zombie, it would be cheese. Most likely it would be blue cheese. I’m thinking about this in the same way that pickles are actually undead zombie cucumbers.

The Best Kind of ZombieWalking Dead 71

Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead #71 FINALLY came out yesterday after waiting for it for 2 months. Usually it’s a once a month zombie love fest, but Kirkman’s been busy working on the upcoming TV adaptation. The pilot will be out sometime in October of this year, with 5 episodes following. We’ve mentioned it here before, but Frank Darabont will be directing. Yay zombies!

So if you like zombies, even if you’re not a comic book fan (graphic novel if you’re snooty), read it. It’s actually the only illustrated thing I read.

The Worst Kind of Zombie

Since we’re talking about zombies, let’s talk about hockey fans. Yes, the undead drones of cheering zombies that descended on our city center to celebrate Montreal’s impossible 7th game victory over Washington last night. Most of them shambled along Ste-Catherine street. Some tried to incite a riot and broke shop windows. Others threw bottles at the riot police. One zombie fan pickpocketed another zombie fan and stole their insulin pump in the process.

Bad zombie!

I just don’t know what some people are thinking. When they get the zombie sports fan euphoria bug, some do tend to really turn into mindless idiots. It makes me hope (almost) that our team gets eliminated in the next round. I don’t get how joy translates into violence and destruction. Right…I was talking about zombies. Of course.

    Heyyyy…i only threw one bottle and kicked a cop in the nuts, come on!
    Seriously what a game! And like after or during any major event, there are assholes that make everyone look bad, but it is just a minority of zombies, like 10 or 20. Sometimes they are well organized and it is planned (think of the G8 summit in Quebec City). It is a perfect situation for looting so these punks take advantage of it. Do not wish the Habs bad luck, Mike! Again, what a game! man work was tough today…and my playoff beard is really itchy now.

  • Where else can you find on the net a place where you can mix cheeses with zombies? You might be onto something here, far ahead of your time….

    So I am thinking all Zombie movies and I thought of Night of the Living Dead:

    “They’re coming to get you, Barbara.” Except I was sure it was Margaret for some reason.

    Then I started thinking about the little Tiki statue guy that comes to live in that Karen Black movie. I couldn’t remember the name of the movie so I had to Google her.

    Did you know she went to Northwestern and that she was in like a bazillion movies? I didn’t. Trilogy of Terror was the movie I was thinking of with the little Tiki statue. She was also in the Great Gatsby which I find ironic only because I was just saying tonight how I don’t really like F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    I then started to think about Freddie and he really isn’t a Zombie but he scared the shit out of me when I was 20.

    I really have no idea what I am talking about.

  • I love zombies! They’re great, as long as they’re done in a dry humorous kinda way. Shawn of the Dead is a perfect example.

    In fact, if you don’t mind me plugging, my free to download, full, ebook has two (and a half) zombies as the hero’s sidekicks! http://www.TiredofDeath.com to download the utterly free, no need to register, just click and read PDF version.

    cough *spam* cough.

    Jepeto – Of course I really want them to win. My trick to getting them to win is to never watch the game. Whenever I watch, they lose.

    Glenn – Cheese Zombies is so the next big thing. Just watch!

    Linda – Love is just one of those mysteries that doesn’t want to be understood, just acknowledged 🙂

    Katherine – I had to Google it because I couldn’t remember. Zombieland of course! Another great zombie movie! I guess I forfeit my ten points…

    Jen – I had to look it up too. I completely forgot about that Tiki thing! I think I saw it in a weird film class I once had.

    Chinaren – If you love zombies, you HAVE to read The Walking Dead. It’s not humorous, but the story and artwork are amazing. Thank you so much for the link. We’ll check it out!

  • The people that riot over a sports event aren’t really fans. They’re just troublemakers. I remember when it used to happen here in Detroit. They showed some of it on the news. Those people were attacking other people just for the fun of it, including a news truck and the reporter and cameraman inside. I guess that would be zombie-like. The city was so embarrassed by the closeup view of those people that it hasn’t happened since.

  • It’s funny you should compare pickles to zombies, because just the other day I was offering M some pickles with his dinner, and he didn’t want any. So I asked him what pickles has ever done to him, it’s just cucumbers. And in a stroke of genius, he says “I don’t eat anything that has goose bumps.”

    I’m really looking forward to the World Hockey Championship, because I can feel it, this year Finland will win, and we’ll have zombies everywhere. I can’t wait!

  • Nothing goes better with cheese than zombies. And your obsession with cheese rivals (and quite possible even surpasses) Junk Drawer’s obsession with bacon. Because she doesn’t have bacon in her banner. But she does have bacon shoes. Do YOU have cheese shoes?

    Also? Blue cheese rocks.

  • I am a Zombie now. Lost my life, lost my soul, all I do is wander around eating cheese, pickles and human flesh, which isn’t as bad as it sounds.

    As for hockey Zombies, well, I’m a hockey dad and I’ve often gone into hockey dad Zombie mode. My son’s a future NHL star, and we love the sport. I’m inclined to forgive people for tipping a few cars. They won’t have to worry about hockey Zombie violence in Finland, though, because Finland always takes the bronze, Ziva. It’ll be Russia or Canada again this year. Maybe the Chechs, I guess, but it’s unlikely. We put a friendly wager on it. Any ideas on what to bet?

  • Obviously I feel compelled to add to the mix. The only zombies I see are those wandering around lost in the world of their smart phones, oblivious to the unopen sewer cover ahead, the cliff, the oncoming bus.

    Ratty – You’re absolutely right. The bad zombies are usually just a small minority of troublemakers.

    Ziva – That’s brilliant. Does he feel the same way about pre-zombie cucumbers? They sort of have goosebumps too.

    Margaret – We do not have cheese shoes, but there are cheeses that are said to smell like feet, so there’s a connection. Blue cheese is awesome. Give me any color cheese really 🙂

    MikeWJ – I may have to take back what I said. If the Canadiens keep winning, I may end up tipping some cars myself. Hockey Zombie is a highly contagious condition in this city.

    Meleah – I actually could not deal with zombies or horror movies at all for a long time. Then I got bit and never looked back!

    MomZombie – I’ve been guilty of being a cell phone zombie on occasion. It happens. Sometimes we’re not as aware of our surroundings as we should be!
