...no mad skillz, no sacred destiny, just a pink tracksuit that will take her places she never wanted to go...
It's been said that a sure sign of the coming apocalypse is an 80s roller skate disco movie coming to DVD (with special features). In my science-fiction novel series entitled Apocalypse Babes, a stylish group of twenty-something friends are torn from the Babylonian arms of 2006 West Hollywood and flung nearly thirty years into the past. It might be because one of them purchased the taboo film in a nostalgic moment, setting off a chain of events more disturbing than a roller skating conga line. They wake up in an apocalyptic—but strangely familiar—landscape, complete with a hidden mountain compound and retro survivalists, hinting at hidden and retro issues they must face if they want to survive.

I'm not a 100% in love with this idea

I'm for rights generally speaking, but for brain eaters, not so much. Sorry guys. From the Metro UK:

US court rules 'Zombies have free speech rights'

Court rules that horror-movie style zombies have the right to free speech after a group of protesters dressed as zombies were arrested by Minnesota police.

A court has allowed a group of protesters dressed as zombies to continue with a lawsuit against police who arrested them for disorderly conduct.

The appeal court overturned a previous finding that the group had correctly been arrested over a 2006 protest in a shopping centre.

The group had been wearing makeup designed to make them look like and extra in a horror flick, with white faces, fake blood and black circles round their eyes.

They then proceeded to stagger round the shops, urging consumers to "get your brains here".

They also carried audio equipment, which police described as "simulated weapons of mass destruction", even though they were mobile phones.

The appeals court ruled that the police had no reason to imprison the protesters simply for "dressing as zombies, and walking erratically in downtown Minneapolis."

Zombies + Romance = er, love


Love is in the air...or that rotting flesh stench could be something else, but I'm pretty sure it's love. See, there's even a heart on the cover!

From Orbit Books:

The book is about two unlikely heroes — a couple on the verge of divorce. On their way to marriage counseling, they notice a few odd things: a missing guard, a lack of cars on the freeway, and their counselor ripping out the throat of her previous client.

Now it’s up to David and Sarah to work together, save their marriage — and survive in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.

The book is chock-full of valuable post-apocalyptic marriage advice, including:

  • Balance the workload in your relationship. No one person should be responsible for killing all the zombies.
  • Put the small stuff into perspective. It’s better to be wrong and alive than right but eating brains.
  • Talk out your big decisions. Hear both opinions before you decide if you’re going to flee the city or hole up with Campbell’s Soup and CNN.
  • Share in your activities and interests. If you’re going to kill zombies anyway, why not do it together?
  • Plan romantic getaways. Or just getaways.
  • Show physical affection. Nothing says ‘I love you’ like bearing the entirety of your spouse’s body weight.
Can anyone say Amazon pre-order??

Valentine's Day is coming up...

...and what better way to show romance is...not exactly dead.

The Dismember-Me Plush Zombie from ThinkGeek.

The detachable brain only proves that love isn't cerebral...it's from the heart! Which ostensibly is still intact.
