Cold Bodies. Warm Service.

The Zombie Bar is a comfortable little virtual dive bar that welcomes both the living and the dead. I know it's a little smoky in here, but if you can make your way through the dark, past the sexy vamps, regular ghouls, and local zombies, you'll find conversations ranging from booze to bars, zombies to vampires, gothic to industrial, horror movies to hard rock. Gothic nightclubs, monster movies, Great Cthulhu, Voodoo rituals, and your favorite whiskey (or beer, or wine, or Chartreuse) are all good topics in this joint. Enjoy!

Horrorfind (March)
Just thought I'd pop in to post a quick note on the Horrorfind show I just went to the weekend before last, near Baltimore, MD.

Apparently, it was much smaller than the show they typically have in August (if you have any thoughts on the August show, please let me know - I'm considering vending at that one also). I was set up in the vendor room, with my usual black gridwall and black T-shirts. It took me much of the weekend to recover properly from the tense 17 hour drive from New Orleans - most of the way through Tennessee, Virginia, and Maryland it was raining with anywhere from a light sprinkle to severe torrent, and was windy to boot. Apparently a storm system carrying tornadoes swept through Alabama, the morning after I passed through the state, so I must've been caught in one big weather system for the whole drive.

However, I had a great time. Every day in the dealers' room, at about 5pm, the beers and cocktails started appearing in the hands of customers and vendors alike. I didn't get much done in the evenings, as a result, though I did meet some great people, whom I did my best (as usual) to offend, rarely succeeding. I've been to enough fetish, swinging, and gothic events at this point, that it's pretty hard to faze me, but some of the horror folk are surprisingly uptight, though incredibly welcoming.

Highlights included meeting Lucky McKee (director of May and Roman), hanging out with Phil and Joe from Teddy Scares, meeting Lisa and Eric from Pink Monster Party and Tony and Karen from East Coast Kitty, finally having the opportunity to converse (albeit drunkenly) with Chad Savage face to face, drunkenly giving away my Eye of Horus hoody to the cute girl who worked the art show, chatting with the bass player of Cradle of Filth (not a week after seeing them in New Orleans) and selling one of these to Dani Filth, who said "We don't have cool shirts like this in England." Sweet.

Not quite highlights, but neato nonetheless... the little chick from Halloween 4 is now grown up and stunning... she poked through some of my shirts, but didn't have much interest. Gorgeous Ashley Laurence from Hellraiser flitted through the vendor room, and Doug Bradley entertained the masses in the diminutive hotel bar, apparently before dragging a bunch of folk off to the Cradle of Filth show, Sat. night.

Good fun, and a great reception by the folk in Baltimore, who kept repeating how this was tiny compared to the August show, and how I should definitely go to that. Has anyone else here been to that one?

World War Z Community
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Nearly a decade after the end of official hostilities investigative journalist Max Brooks published his novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. It was his hope to offer a more personal look of the war that had been left out of the official United Nations Postwar Commision Report.

Countering the cold, statistical information presented by the UNPCR, the book was heralded with rave reviews not only in the United States where it was originally published but around the world. The raw interviews presented offer the human side of a war that was often far too in-human. The interviews represent a wide spectrum of survivors and provide a sample of the extraordinary survival stories common in the postwar era.

However, with Zack still a threat in numerous parts of the world, we cannot afford to forget the costs and struggles that came with this war. There are millions of zombies still stalking along the bottom of the ocean and Iceland still remains the worst infected white zone on Earth. There are still a great number of threats to the human race and we cannot afford to let another war break out.

worldwarz was created as an extension of the grand endeavours of Mr. Brooks. We would like to collect as many personal accounts, interviews, audio clips, photographs, illustrations, and video clips as possible to document the events of the war.

We welcome any and all to share their stories.

With your contributions, the war may never be forgotten.

Hi  Community!
I'm a new memeber here, and a zombie fan.  Oh those undead!  I thought I'd start by mentioning that Toronto Canada is having it's 4th annual Zombie walk.  The Toronto Zombie walk - rain or shine!  It should be fun.   A bunch of my friends are going and I hope to be there as a zombie photographer too.    They are timing the walk this year with a new Film Festival - a 5 day film fest of "dark cinema" at the Bloor Cinema.  Last year the weather was terrible and the turn out was not as good as hoped -- only about 150 zombies showed. Still.. not too bad.  I suspect its going to be a much bigger event this year though.the search for brains!

I'm new to LJ and would love to meet other zombie fans to discuss the movies, or talk about makeup.  I'm putting together some zombie shirt designs like the one here (hope its not too big).  

anyway, nice to meet you all... and if you're going to the Toronto Zombie walk.. do come by my lj and say hi!   I've met a few people on another (very quiet community) who are quite nice but I'm hoping to meet more.  

Regards to you all.
