Yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me...


If you were forced to live out your days at sea then this would be the way to do it. I'm just not too sure about using zombies to fuel your stoves.

Dead Island and Tiger Mothers

If you've been out in the woods away from your iPhone and civilization the last week then you may have missed the debut of a trailer of the new zombie game from Deep Silver games.

Here's the trailer 'reversed' or rather in chronological order:

As a new parent this trailer scares me. Zombies used to scare me but now the thought of anything happening to my family scares me more then the walking dead do.

On that note zombie combat Manual author Roger Ma wrote an interesting article regarding the parenting method known as Tiger Mothering and zombie survival which can be found here.

Never say die...

So I've been struggling with a few things as of late...
1) keeping this blog as pure research and ignoring the fan culture
2) keeping a writing schedule
3) keeping up with my wee one as she's learning to walk

That and this winter has been sucking the creative energy right out of me. So with that in mind I'm going to open this up a bit more and start doing more fun articles. The research is great but it involves much more thought and time invested to do work... so with that in mind I'll be posting some of my latest exploits. I've been on 'vacation' in Fortune City, Nevada and I took a trip back to an old doctor friend of mine at West Mansion. And wouldn't you know it, on my trips I ran into zombies. Lots of 'em. Imagine that? But I escaped more or less unscathed and learned a few interesting pieces of information along the way. Stay tuned!
