Dead Love: Brain Power

Dead Love: Brain Power...

Never underestimate the power of brains … at least in all matters zombie. For example, the 2010 Toronto Zombie Walk, which happens in October, will be raising money through the sale of some mighty sweet brains … well, brain brooches. Just a thing for those fashion zombies....
Dead Love for the Grateful Dead

Dead Love for the Grate...

Maybe it was the skeletons and roses, I don’t know exactly why I had to check out The Grateful Dead: Now Playing at the New York Historical Society, but this celebration of a superband from the sixties did kind of carry me away. To where? To some oddly trippy, hippy place full...
6. Hide and Seek (3)

6. Hide and Seek (3)...

Whatever his real identity, his name loosened tongues. “What do you know of Arnotine Ferucand?” sneered a tall young man on the second day of their investigation in the vicinity of Jacmel. He regarded Ryu with suspicion. Then he looked at the photo of Miura and chuckled. “Oh,...
Dead Love: Rats!

Dead Love: Rats!...

I just saw my first rat (family: Muridae, genus: Rattus) this trip. It was scuttling along the tracks in the NY underground. I’m surprised I haven’t seen more of them. Nobody knows how many rats there are in New York; estimates range from hundreds of thousands to millions....
Dead Love: Zombie Rant #2

Dead Love: Zombie Rant ...

If I didn’t already feel like a zombie, today would certainly push me over the edge. I’m dragging around after a day of sifting through the good and the bad at BEA. I don’t know if the stats say “up” or “down,” but I’d say attendance...
Dead Love: NYC Zombie Crawl

Dead Love: NYC Zombie C...

Regrettably, I’m going to miss this (even though DEAD LOVE is in NY for the next few days and nights with tons of free advance readers’ copies), but I thought that the closet and out zombies should know … The Spring NYC Zombie Crawl is happening this Sunday. It starts...

Dead Love: Russian Zomb...

Zombies in Russia? But of course! Here’s the proof. It’s The Meat Holiday in Moscow and quite the zombie mob gallery—a colorful little treat … —Erin Orison, DEAD LOVE/The Daily Slice
Dead Love: Dead, Gone, and Very Green

Dead Love: Dead, Gone, ...

You may find the undead scary, but the way humanity deals with the dead is the real horror, environmentally speaking. Between the wood used for caskets (30 million—sometimes rare wood—board feet, according to National Geographic), the tons of steel and concrete for burial vaults,...
Zombie Nod to The Rolling Stones

Zombie Nod to The Rolli...

Today I thought I’d dedicate a graph and a link or two to another English rock band from the sixties, this one with superhuman endurance. That’s right, it has to be The Rolling Stones. They’ve been hanging together since 1962 … well, pretty much … they...
6. Hide and Seek (2)

6. Hide and Seek (2)...

They speak French and Creole in Haiti. Ryu spoke Japanese and some English. When he found a translator, the fellow, who was not at all fluent in Japanese, had trouble understanding him. “I need to find this man,” said Ryu in Japanese. He handed the translator a photo of Miura....
