Blogwhore of Babylon

I love zombies. [See Fig. 1]
Fig. 1: My wife actually lets me leave the house dressed like this.
In fact, next to grindcore, Dostoevsky or a good gangster/heist film, zombie films are a genuine passion for me. Because the only thing better than a good zombie movie is a really, really bad one, I harassed my associate and fellow zombie connoisseur Rob into starting up a zomblog with me: Nightlife of the Living Dead.
Given the demographic crossover between grind aficionados and zombie fiends is as old and entrenched as Horrified, I thought I’d invite all of you, should you be so inclined, to join us over there as we delve into the best – and oh yes, the worst – zombiedom has to offer.
If that’s not your thing, that’s cool too. G&P will remain my primary outlet so don’t worry that my affections will wander.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled grindcore.

Sir... I could talk your ear off about the living dead... The italian one's are my favorite.

This is great news! Ya see, I think you're a great writer and all. And I'm genuinely into grindcore, but not so much the long tail of grind. So, sometimes I lose interest in this blog o' yours.

I will never lose interest in zombies. So reading about them through the Childers lens sounds like a treat.

I don't know if you ever plan on writing about metal/zombie crossovers, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on Deceased's Fearless Undead Machines, or maybe some others. There's gotta be some zombiegrind bands out there... right?

vengeance: me too. not much can beat that level of pure absurdity.

ryan: we will definitely be digging deep into the italo-zombie cannon. i start with hell of the living dead. i also recently subjected myself to a full viewing of the zombie series, including the post-fulci crapularity that is zombie 4 and 5 *shudder*

miskatonic: we look forward to you jumping in the fray. and for now my plan is to keep my zombies and my grind separate. they may cross over in the future, but i thought it'd be a nice change for me to tackle another subject.
