The ‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ trailer.

OK, normally I wouldn’t.

But Anna and the Apocalypse is a Christmas zombie movie musical.  That makes it legitimately of note.  It doesn’t mean that it’s going to be good; merely that they had to do some extra work to throw this sucker together.  That already puts it ahead of a lot of Christmas horror flicks.

I’m not sure that I have to watch…

The Walking Dead series now*: this is pretty much everything that I’d be there for. Don’t click on the video if your job inexplicably has a problem with zombies being headshotted; and if your job does, my sympathies.

Organ Trail.

Old-style Oregon Trail video game, only with a zombie apocalypse theme.  You can blame ML tech god Neil Stevens for this one; I was up until 2 AM getting to safety… although the rest of my party tragically died outside of Memphis when we ran out of food.  Tragic, but exceptionally fitting for the genre.  I kept expecting the corpses to reanimate and eat me, but they never did.

re: Your Unemployment Rate.

[UPDATE]: Welcome, Instapundit readers.

Instapundit put up a 38 second video that shows the growth of unemployment by county since January of 2007 (short version: it’s doubled). As one of his readers later noted, the video looks like nothing so much as a video of a standard zombie infestation.

I can work with that.

Yeah. This is probably going to end up on the bookshelf.

This being The Zombie Combat Manual: A Guide to Fighting the Living Dead. If only because it’s talking about zombie combat without firearms and written by a CERT first responder, which hopefully means that there’ll be believable arcane jargon. Lots of people can’t do arcane jargon properly.

Well, that’s why it’s arcane. And jargon.

So when the first reports of space zombies come out of Mexico…

…blame the Russians:

A LOUD explosion and ball of fire that people in central Mexico reported seeing in the sky was actually a Russian satellite plunging back to earth, experts said.

“We think it was the space wreckage of a Russian satellite that was catalogued by the Department of Defense of the United States and which we knew could pass over Mexican territory,” engineer Fernando de la Peno said.

Mr De la Peno is also a chief proponent of establishing a Mexican space agency[*].

Anyway. Russian military ‘recon’ satellite, disappearing crater, fragmented re-entry… yeah. Zombies. What’s Spanish for ‘space zombies,’ anyway? The colloquial one, at least? ‘Llllllooooooosssssssss cerebrrrrrooooooosssssss’ I more or less already worked out on my own.

*Hey, remember the days when the American response to the last sentence quoted there would be an indulgent, patronizing chuckle, and not a rueful “I remember having one of those”?

PS: There are not just Mexican zombie flicks.

There are Mexican masked wrestling zombie flicks. Because God loves you, and wishes for you to be happy.

Unemployment slideshow? Or zombie outbreak progression?

[UPDATE]: Welcome, Instapundit readers.

You tell me.  It’s certainly looking how I’d imagine a bicoastal outbreak would look.  Guess the next Romero flick will go with a zombies-as-the-‘funemployed’ metaphor, or something else suitably heavy-handed.

Via Instapundit.

PS: It is no doubt rude of me to point out that this outbreak video represents two years’ worth of a Democratic-controlled Congress, and one year’s worth of a Democratic-controlled government.  At least, I hope that it is, seeing that we were promised an unemployment rate at least two points below the one that we’re having now.  My being allowed to be rude seems like a bare minimum in the realm of recompense.

British house hit with space debris. Zombie outbreak unreported.

(Via Fark Geek) Some people have all the luck.

A lump of metal which smashed through the roof of a house is believed to have come from space, the RAF has said.

The 4lb object was investigated by the RAF Flight Safety Branch after it landed in the loft of Peter and Mair Welton’s home in Forester Way, Hull, in July this year.

Then again, this is how a lot of zombie flicks start, so if you start to hear of ravenous walking corpses rampaging through… it looks like central-East England… you’ll at least now know which locale to futilely nuke.

Does your family have a zombie infestation plan?

I Brake For Zombies.

No, really. The damn things have the mass of a living human, remember? Try to barrel through a crowd of them and you end up crashing the car, which probably means that you’ll break a window, and then it’s all over for you, Sparky. If you absolutely can’t go around, just take your foot off of the gas pedal, get down to three miles an hour, and keep swerving the wheel left and right to sort of nudge the undead hordes out of the way. With any luck, none of them will have the leverage needed to smash the glass. With even more luck, they’ll not smell your tasty, tasty brains in the first place.

…this is what I think of, typically, when I see stories like:

Construction signs warn of zombies
Hackers change public safety message

This is simply the sort of person that I am, and everybody around me has had to learn to accept that.

Moe Lane

PS: The Zombie Survival Guide doesn’t think you should drive at all.  To which I say, try transporting more than 10 lb. of looted medical materials to your isolated fortress on a bicycle and see how far you get.

PPS: Heh.  I guess that AoSHQ was saving this story for Saturday, too.  Theirs have more pictures.
