We welcome the arrival of the highly anticipated corporate zombie robots blog brought to you by Emin Bakioglu. As Emin puts it “We adopt more and more zombie-like behaviors at workplace, just doing our mindless jobs. No thinking required from us, because ¬†evil corporations are demanding us to become their mindless zombies and do our jobs like robots.”. So true. Bookmark it. Laugh. Check it out.

Zombies of the 80’s

Return of the living dead (1985)

So i do love cheesy 80’s movies but this is just bad. No, Horrible!!! Hairmetal, spandex, and zombies that say “Brains”. There is just so much wrong about this. A lot of the other zombie movies made in the 80’s follow the falsities and ridiculousness. I have to bring this to you so you know what’s bad in zombie lore. Now I feel like I need to take a shower. Yuck…..

Here is another movie on the list to see. Not that you should take zombies lightly, but it is good to laugh once in a while.

The Brain Debate

Zombies have been the talk of the town in my area and people are starting to get interested. Friends are finding cartoons, and art revolving around the notion that zomies hunger specifically for brains. I am not sure where this notion came from. From the early begginings of zombie lore up until now, zombies have not been specifically drawn to the brain (or moaned ‘brains’ for that matter). The one constant in zombie feeding is human flesh. Notice that zombies do not feed off of each other, they seem to crave living human flesh. We are not sure what causes this but it is a constant.

So the issue of brains. Personally, I believe it’s due to ignorance. I think one person at one time made a comment or a joke or whatever and it stuck. A cliche’ or catch phrase. My friend Treezoy says it’s the “Judy, Judy” theory. The “Judy, Judy” theory is a theory that’s based on the actor Carey Grant. Usually when people imitate him they say “Judy, Judy”. The more people said it the more it stuck. What’s interesting (Treezoy tells me) is that Carey Grant never said it. Then how did catch the phrase get attached to him? I have no clue. Why have brains become the zomie catch phrase? The 80’s are to blame (more on that later). Your thoughts…

Zombies on the silver screen

I was doing some research on old zombie movies and came across these two. After reading some reviews, it seems like most people didn’t like the movies. Little was said about the zombies though. Both seem to revolve around subplot love stories and seem pretty slow (what do you expect, they were made before the 50’s). However, I am very interested in seeing the way they portray the living dead. Their explanation of the origin and killing methods (if mentioned). These are some of the first movies on zombies, so I think it is interesting to see zombie history. Well, here they are.

Revolt of the zombies (1936)
