‘Tis the season for zombies.

I know Christmas was yesterday, but with the whole laptop crashing stuff, I’m just getting around to finding all the fun stuff I missed on the interwebs in December.

Did you know there was a book of Zombie Christmas Carols? I have got to get my act together and come up with something Zombie related to start making some money. I found the link thru one of my favorite authors, Christopher Moore. If you haven’t read his stuff, you are seriously missing out, my friend. Pick up a copy of The Stupidest Angel , it’s a perfect story to read for the holidays and it has zombies!

Here’s a favorite Christmas song…Zombiefied:

ZOMBIE THE SNOW MAN

(Sung to the tune of Frosty, The Snowman

Zombie the Snow Man was a jolly, happy ghoul,

With a corncob pipe and some boy’s nose and two eyes he got at school.

Zombie the Snow Man is a fairy tale, they say;

He was undead it’s so, but the children know how he came

Back to life one day.

There must have been a virus in that old silk hat they found,

For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around.

Oh, Zombie the Snow Man was alive as he could be,

And the children say he ate brains all day as they tried to run away.

Zombie the Snow Man knew the brains were fresh that day,

So he said,”Please run, because it’s lots more fun when I eat your brain that way”.

Down through the village with a femur in his hand,

Running here and there all around the square, sayin’

“Decaptiate me if you can!”

He chased them through the streets of town and ate the traffic cop

And he barely paused a moment when, he heard the cops brain pop!”

Zombie the Snow Man had to hurry on his way,

But he waved good-by, sayin’, “Please do cry and I’ll eat your brains again someday!”

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump,

Look at that Frosty go;

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump,

Over the hills of snow.

Call me crazy…

Ok…anyone playing Plants vs Zombies notice that the Michael Jackson Back Up Dancer/Zombie looks a little like Chris “The Birdman” Anderson from the Denver Nuggets? Look…here’s some photos for comparison:

Am I right? Anyone? Anyone? Maybe it’s just me.

Oh…and GO MAGIC!

Zombie ants!

This is disturbing and fascinating all at the same time. Texas officials will be turning fire ants into zombies as a way to control the pests this summer:

“The fly attacks foraging fire ants, injecting eggs into the ant with a needle-like appendage. As the larvae mature, they attack and destroy the brain, causing the ant to wander aimlessly like a zombie. After two weeks or so, the ant’s head falls off and a new fly emerges, ready to attack other ants.”

See? Awesome and freaky. Just like zombies. Read the rest of the article over at the LA Times here.

Plants vs Zombies…again.

plants_vs_zombies_list

I have been playing Plants vs Zombies from PopCap games for a couple of days now and this game rocks. It is way too addictive, I thought I had only been playing a few minutes when I had been actually playing for almost two hours! The game is a bargain at only $20 and Steam has it for $10. This article explains the game much better than I ever could.

I love Plants vs Zombies!

Thanks to this review from Wired, I’ve now got an awesome new time waster called Plants vs Zombies. From Popcap games, here’s the description:

“A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and your only defense is an arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants. Use peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more to mulchify 26 types of zombies before they can reach your front door.

Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all. But be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds… as you battle the fun-dead, obstacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge. And with five game modes to dig into, the fun never dies!”

This game is really funny and completely addicting. Two hours blew by before I realized I had not charged my laptop enough and I got the black screen of death right when the Michael Jackson “Thriller” Zombie entered the screen. Frak. Sure, it’s not Left 4 Dead. There’s not much gore except for the rolling zombie heads but it’s not meant to be. Give it a try and I think you will be amazed at how much fun it is. It did seem to easy in the beginning, more like a kids game, but as you progress thru the different levels you realize it’s become a challenging game of strategy. Click here to try it out for FREE.

The time has come.

Are you prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse? Got your hideout all stocked? No? Then you better get a move on because I’m telling you now that Swine Flu is just the coverup for the real deal…Zombies! Just read this article at the Telegraph:

“It’s like we’re in a strange zombie movie or something,” said Gerardo Garcia, a 23-year-old student, hurriedly stocking up with groceries.

“You don’t know who could be carrying this plague so it is best to just keep behind closed doors as much as possible.”

Uh huh. Laugh at my paranoia now but just remember this moment when your next door neighbor is chewing on your brain.
