CDC Addresses Zombie “Invasions”

May 19, 2011

Get A Kit, Make A Plan, Be Prepared. emergency.cdc.govWell, this is disappointing. Our lobbying efforts do not seem to be having any affect on policy at various government agencies, despite several promises from various officials.

First of all, Zombriety isn’t a disease. That’s something else entirely. We’ve addressed this extensively before, and would like to post links to prior posts that explain this point.

Lies! Damn Lies!
Deathstyle Crisis

We will continue our efforts, but the recent post at the CDC saddens us immensely.

Zombie Marie Curie Talks about Brains

May 9, 2011

XKCD is a great and geeky strip, and if you didn’t know that already I’m surprised you made it here. Today the strip features Zombie Marie Curie discussing many other women in science who have been overlooked. We think this is a great message, and a good use of one’s Post-Vital years.

Capitol Z

May 6, 2011

Brains?Washington DC is by all accounts a unique place, with people of all stripes and creeds, from all nations, vying for the attention of a few very powerful men and women. It’s full of activity, and history, and drama.

One of our fine public servants is blogging his experiences working in the Department of Undead Management. While we here object to the words “Management” and “Undead” have lobbied to have it changed to a more Post-Vital sensitive name, we do recognize that the DUM was formed in a different time, when Zombies had less of a voice.

We highly recommend reading his blog, as well as his Twitter Feed.

“Zombie Proof” House Design

May 2, 2011

If you want to live in a concrete block that has many windows that themselves can be covered by concrete blocks, then look no further. This home when sealed is only accessible via a retractable drawbridge.

It really is a shame when prejudice and hatred influence someone into an unreasonable act. Eventually he’ll starve, become a zombie himself, and then he’ll be stuck there, all alone. Sad, poor fool.

Post-Vital Cupcakes

April 14, 2011

Friendly Zombie Cupcakes

Ingredients :

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup vegan granulated sugar
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 cup cherry pie filling or “red” jam
1 recipe Vanilla Glaze (listed under frosting)
powdered sugar


This is a variation on the “white cake” recipe under “weddings”. Here. When you eat these friendly zombies you will find a surprise inside–their fruity brains!  Finally, a sweet revenge (zombies eat brains, if you didn’t know that).

1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, coconut, baking soda, and salt.

2. In another bowl, combine water, oil, vanilla, and vinegar. Combine wet and dry.

3. Prepare 12 cupcake liners in a pan. Fill each just under half full with the batter.  Spoon into the middle about 2 teaspoons (a small spoonful or so) of the pie filling/jam. Cover with more cake batter until the liner is full, but not overflowing.

4. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes; start checking after 15 to 20 minutes (my oven is a bit special and my cook times are always a little off). Once the tops are just brown and a toothpick comes out clean, remove from oven and let cool all the way.

5. Once cooled, make the “Vanilla Glaze” or use your own frosting recipe. Dust with powdered sugar if you want to give them a nice “dusty” face. Then decorate with chocolate chips, dried fruits, nuts, more coconut, or anything else that looks tasty.

Then you have a friendly zombie cupcake that you can eat the brains of!

While we do not condone revenge on the post-vital here at ZADL we do condone delicious flavor.

A new Re: Your Brains video

April 1, 2011

We’ve featured this song before on ZADL, but this version appears to have been filmed at our offices. Those guys, and their wacky hijinx! Of course we don’t want to eat your brains… much.

The X-Files a name synonomous with the supernatural, the extra-terrestial and the just plain odd. Late into the run of the show they did an episode about post vital existence entitled Hollywood A.D. To be more specific, season 7 episode 19. This is by many one of the worst episodes of the entire series, but it is a light hearted comical one. Why I bring this episode up is this fascinating piece of dialogue right here:

Mulder: You know Scully, I was just thinking about Lazarus, Ed Wood, and those Tofurkey-eatin’ zombies. How come when people come back from the dead, they always wanna hurt the living?

Scully: Well, that’s because people can’t really come back from the dead, Mulder. I mean, ghosts and zombies are just projections of our own repressed cannibalistic and sexual fears and desires. They are who we fear that we are at heart. Just mindless automatons who can only kill and eat.

Mulder: Party pooper. Well, I got a new theory. I say that when zombies try to eat people, that’s just the first stage. You see, they’ve just come back from being dead, so they’re gonna do all the things they missed from when they were alive. So first, they’re gonna eat. Then, they’re gonna drink. Then, they’re gonna dance and make love.

Truly a enlightened attitude to take toward the post vital. Kudos to the writers for this piece of dialogue.

ZADL Seeks Writers

March 15, 2011

We think it’s pretty obvious from the lack of consistent posts around here that meat-life interferes pretty much with our humble attempts at blogging. That being said, we are seeking writers to assist with the work. If you’re interested, please leave a comment in this thread or e-mail us at ZADL at mac dot com, and we’ll contact you as soon as we can.

The Zombie Tabernacle Choir

February 2, 2011

Such well trained vocal cords!

Sing your heads off!

Such wondrous tones! Such an amazing idea! Just click on the Zombie you wish to sing, or Zombies, and listen to the dulcet tones only the Post-Vital can achieve!

Living with Necro Ambulatory Disorder

January 21, 2011

We’re not too sure about the use of the word “disorder” but we feel that the message will be in the right place. We look forward to the finished film.

Japanese Zombies Advertise

January 5, 2011

Previously on this site we reported how a simple house visit by a Zombie was misinterpreted by Japanese children to be an attack, and how a vitalist reporter egged them on to attack and embarrass the Zombie.

We would like it known however that Japan is a complex and deep culture, and that those vitalist views are not shared by all. Here they are selling Pocky, a kind of candy-ish snack. We wonder if these guys are Z.A.G.

We’re Tweeting

December 30, 2010

Polly want a brain?


OK, so we’re late to the game we know. But we figured that with the relative infrequency of the site’s updates, that another simpler medium was needed.

The feed is @ZADL_org and we expect the normal banal updates to flow with typical banality.

The Zombie Bird image is by CoolDrMoney, and we hope he doesn’t mind our acknowledgment of his skill.

A Very Zombie Holiday

December 22, 2010

Look, I know we sometimes seem like a one-note horn around here, but really. The Zombies in this film clearly just want to join in the festivities, no need for violence. Can’t we just all get along?
