Zombie Lurch 2005

I was thinking some very deep thoughts, struggling with deep existential questions, when I stumbled across this website .

Immediately, I realised that my tiny problems didn't matter a damn, and I had found a campaign worth rallying around.

The Zombie Lurch 2005. Every country should have one.

In some effort to at least segway towards a philosophical question, isn't it interesting how Undead creatures are portrayed as having little mind of their own, yet are still poignantly linked to their former lives? Personally, I'd like to see a movie where people became ludicrously attractive when turned into zombies. That way, the contrast between their vapid existence and their physical form would be all the more ironic and striking.

Perhaps we could have magazines dedicated to Zombification, such that the Zombie state seemed like an end in itself, the goal of life rather than the upturning of everything valuable.

And, on a final note for Zombie aspirants, I recommend the soothing vibes of Zombo Com.

Cheers,

Wait, so the term 'zombie' and 'undead' can be used interchangeably?

Well, according to popular fiction, the Zombies are just one of the Undeade Legion (sometimes, Undead Horde).

Also included are Vampires and Mummies, and sometime Necromancers.

Ghouls are sometimes undead, sometimes not. Werewolves are not undead, but are sometimes commanded by Vampires.
