A blog almost entirely dedicated to zombies? At first glance, I’m sure this may look obsessive, reminiscent of Twilight diehards even. To anyone making the comparison, WE FART IN YOUR GENERAL DIRECTION. The vampire genre has probably been around since the invention of motion pictures. However, they’ve been romanticized, satirized, and even portrayed as pop culture icons as of late. It seems chic to even be affiliated with anything involving vampires.

We’re not about that. A parallel E and I have drawn with zombies and “real life,” is that zombies represent an imposing, immovable, and all too terrifying apocalypse that signifies the end of the world as we know it. These sentiments were  first echoed by Max Brooks. As with an apocalypse, a zombies cannot be bargained with. Zombies cannot be deterred. You cannot instill fear in zombies. The only driving force behind zombies is hunger. This hunger does not subside even with the extermination of mankind.

See what what we’re getting at?

Zombies to us represent the inevitable fact that some how, some way, humans will be dealt a serious blow and may not be able to rebound. At that point, we’re at our lowest common denominator. Those with little to no basic survival skills might be the first to bite the proverbial dust. If possible, we’d like to help that. And that starts with readers of this blog. So sit back and enjoy.

And now, some words from E:

Hello everyone. Welcome to our site.

I’ve never blogged before, but I figured this would provide a good opportunity for me to find some time outside of work to relax and write about topics that I find interesting. Specifically, I have a great deal of interest in the zombie genre. There’s something about it that appeals to me. I’m generally a positive person, but I find myself attracted to chaos and apocalyptic themes.
Also, I believe my fantasy of a zombie apocalypse creates a realistic need to always prepare myself for certain emergency situations. Some might chalk it up to paranoia, but it’s just common sense. We’ve got earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, tornadoes, nuclear meltdowns, riots, etc. all over the world. I would hate to be caught in the middle of a natural disaster and not have the necessary survival gear/equipment/tools. So disaster preparation would be a frequent topic here.
Besides talking about zombie related topics, we’ll also be posting our thoughts on pretty much anything we feel like. After all, it’s a chance for us to blow some steam and just write, write and write some more!

So please visit again soon for updated content. Thanks!
