Great Show Sunday Night... [30 Jul 2005|03:09am]


Jason Webley may just be the greatest live performer on the planet. So check him out and you certainly will enjoy it. In addition to playing accordion, a bottle vodka full of coins, or just sitting down and playing a guitar he has been known to kill himself on stage. Depending on the song, his voice can sound like a devil or an angel. See him once and you'll become a junkie like me.

Listen to some of his music at myspace.com/JasonWebley.

Survival Area [24 Jul 2005|04:55pm]

As whiteplastik and I were headed to the DaVinci lab and walked through the Kelly School's back court-yard type thing.

I think it would be lovely (and feasible) to have such an outdoor area. The surrounding buildings would give nice shelter and I personally feel that the area would be easily blockaded.

Any input on this?

So who's up for some lunch? [21 Jun 2005|12:10pm]

Recently, my hours at work have been taking a cut. This is bad for my wallet, but perhaps good for my social life. Would anyone be up for meeting for lunch either tomorrow or thursday? I suppose I could use it as an excuse to check out the new Chipotle resturant down town and discuss zombies, shelter, movies, or whatever comes along natural.
so who's up for some tacos?

Where should we meet: the brainstorming [05 Jun 2005|11:48am]

When the dead rise, it'll be essential to be able to group up and find suitable shelter.
First thing I should introduce is the buddy system, I encourage to try to get in contact with other members of the community and try to find out who lives near you and who you can trust. This would be a good excuse for a little get together, I promise I'll try to ome up with something this summer. I recommend buddy groups of three. If one of the members is injured, it's easier for two people to carry them. Any more than three and you're complicating things. It would be helpful if One of these buddies has a house/apartment that is secure. this house should:
-have thick doors
-not have many windows and the windows should be small and easily boarded up or blocked with furniture.
-have enough food to be rationed among three people for at least a month.
-have radio/tv/internet access to keep up to date about the situation.
-allow offensive/defensive measures to be used. (i.e. have guns, an accessable roof to pick off shots, etc)
-be a quiet, somewhat soundproof house.
-be close enough to additional supplies: food, water
-have a reliable form of transportation in the garage/driveway with gas in the tank.
-have emergency tanks of gas if needed.

ok, so I'll post a follow up to this when I'm not so bored...

The time has come. [05 Jun 2005|10:04am]

Enough video game reviews and moderately comedic posters. Enough advertisements for independant films. The time has come to get serious, and post information vital to survival in the case of undead up-rising. (Is undead PC?)
We need info like:
Caliber of rifle/handgun/shotfun needed to damage the menace.
What variety of non perishable food will not alert the zombies by odor. (Other than my spicy brain)
Where are we meeting, where is the backup meeting place, and how are we going to survive after that?
Come on, people, if we're to survive, we have to SURVIVE.

Zombie Games: Timesplitters- Future Perfect [23 May 2005|03:28pm]

I've decided to start a column series devoted to video games and zombies. This will be updated whenever I feel like it.
For the first column, I would like to present to you

Timesplitters is a first person shooter series developed by Rare, the same company responscible for Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. The game takes place...well, just about everywhere. It's a meta FPS that takes every genre of FPS you've played before, and shoves it into one game. In this game you play as Cortez, a time-traveling hero who seems to be a good doppleganger for Vin Diesel. For more detailed information of the game in full, please refer to your favorite game reviewing site or use google to find one. All I care to say is that this game rocks...hard...all night long.

Now lets get into the zombies. If you're looking for start to finish zombie blasting, either spend the entire game in multiplayer and give the bots zombie skins (or just choose the undead theme, the multiplayer options are extensive) or get another game. As this is a meta game, taking you to various locations and time periods, your zombie blasting is limited to one time period...the present and starts off in a giant mansion. But don't let me lead you to believe that this is a dissapointing undead blast fest, for every time period/level is huge and takes at least an hour to complete. The mansion is no exception. It starts off a little slow, just like every good zombie fiction should, with one or two zombies coming at you then a steady crescendo till your shooting zombies every time you turn a corner. Guess where you have to shoot them in order to rekill them. That's right the head, otherwise they just flop onto the floor (ragdoll physics baby!!) and get right back up. You start off with a trusty revolver, then gain access to a shotgun, a baseball bat, and a flamethrower. The Pistol is actually pretty handy, as it holds six shots before reloading. The shotgun requires less precision, but it's an old rusty doublebarrel and must be reloaded after two shots, which may prove inconveniet when a zombie is gnawing at your bald Vin Dieselly head. The baseball bat...well, it's nice if you want to be able to give the zombie a hug before you kill him, but it's best to keep them at a distance. The flamethrower isn't really intended for the zombies, but rather the spirits that occasionally fly out at you. You could use it on the zombies, but all it does is set them at fire. Then you have a flaming zombie gnawing at your bald Vin Dieselly head.

The time period starts in a mansion, but like most of the other time periods, it takes to numerous enviroments. You see, the mansion is actually housing a research facility where they create and test zombies (there are even a couple testing chambers with subjects inside...and you use the computer to adjust the conditions of the test subjects...before you send them to a painful death by explosion, firey combustion, or crush...-ation. And then as you progress through the time period, you are sent to an underground mine shaft filled with ghosts and and then you meet up with the boss of the level, which is a giant beast that seems to be a reference to Half-life...not entire sure though. After that...well I got stuck.

Anyways, if you want great game that lets you blast through several different enviroments, including a zombie ridden mansion, please check out Timesplitters: Future Perfect. It kicks arsenic.

Another tool to add to your Zombie Survival Kit [05 May 2005|10:41am]

I was searching through the ol' garage and along with finding the trusty crowbar (a tool I still stand by as essential), I also found a folding shovel. This is great for many reasons:

*It's compact and lightweight. When folded it is just a little bigger than a portable CD player.

*Despite being light weight, it still weilds enough mass to be an excellent weapon against a zombie. In fact, if you have the means, a rotary grinder or at least a metal file, the blade can be sharped to ensure deadliness. The biggest drawback is the fact that it takes too much time to unfold it and screw the blade in place. But a swing perpindicular to the hinge movement can still prove effective.

*When dealing with the redead corpses of the undead, it is best to throw the bodies onto a bonfire and incinerate them in order to avoid reanimation and health risks such as infection. The shovel can be used to dig a hole for the ashes and also serve as a method of transfering the ashes from the fire to the hole (although, if possible, it'd be quicker and easier to use a full sized shovel. But you can't fit a full sized shovel in your back pack, now can you?"

*In desperate situations, it may be nessessary (sp) to dig under a fence or wall in order to get to safety.

*Digging and filling latrines, because no one wants to smell or see your dookie.

*They're pretty inexpensive and can be found in a camping supply store or an Army/Navy store.


Your Friend and Ally,

What's green, blue, red, and tastes funny?
A zombie baby eating a clown.

What's red and sits in a high chair?
A zombie baby eating a twitching, human foot.

What's cuter than a zombie baby?
A zombie baby with a bunny head in its mouth.

What's small, red, and can't turn around in a corridor?
A zombie baby impaled on a 7-foot iron spear.

check it out:  there's more!

also, is everyone aware that there's a zombie training camp (ZOMbat training) coming up in exactly one month?

should we get serious and become a full-fledged zombie squad?

Atomic Age Cinema: The Website!!! [02 May 2005|02:34am]

Hey, I noticed there's been some interested invested in checking this thing out and now, for your convenience, the great folks at AAC made a website. It's pretty barebones, but the layout is pretty stylish and, most importantly, there's a schedual of all the movies they'll be playing during the month.

I'm espescially looking forward to next Saturday's presentation: FREAKS!!! Exploitation of the deformed and weird at it's finest. The catchphrase of the movie is "one of us" and I'm sure many of you will be eager to blow off some steam after the dreaded finals, so please become "one of us". ONE OF US!!!

things of interest [29 Apr 2005|03:20am]

[ mood | creative ]

The trailer for Land of the Dead was just released today. It looks pretty badass to me. If this community is still active and working in June, perhaps we should plan a cheesy community outing to go see it.


Official Survivor
Congratulations! You scored 77%!

Whether through ferocity or quickness, you made it out. You made the
right choice most of the time, but you probably screwed up somewhere.
Nobody's perfect, at least you're alive.

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 56% on survivalpoints
Link: The Zombie Scenario Survivor Test written by ci8db4uok on Ok Cupid

(the first time I took it, I scored better than that. I changed some answers, but apparently they were the wrong ones to change. Under pressure I think I could do better, though.)


I don't know if you kids have seen this, but I thought you might find it interesting.

Real zombies in Cambodia. Scary, eh?

Or fake. I've heard both.


I have some friends (who are probably lurking in this community) who are dead-set on making a zombie movie this summer. Who can/wants to help? They/we need every possible kind of help. It should be fun!

Zombies in space! [29 Apr 2005|03:09am]

[ mood | pink ]

You may already know about it, but the new local pulp fiction magazine Halcyon features a zombie series. It’s called Space Mariner X. The hero is a zombie, but in space! The series is written by Chad Bouchard, whom, I believe doubles as the news director for WFIU

Today is brought to you by the letter 'Z' [27 Apr 2005|01:59pm]

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

So I'll try to keep this one fresh for a while, just be sure to say howdy if you see it. Although perhaps it wouldn't hurt for us to post pics sooner or later. That way we know who to let into the stronghold.

And be sure to come to Atomic Age Cinema, the more cool geeky kids we have taking up the seats, the less hipsters we have with thier gigantic hair and terribly unfunny 'jokes'.
