How amazing is this zombie apocalypse charm bracelet from Etsy seller PlayBox? It’s adorned with adorable miniature versions of everything you’ll need to survive the real life “World War Z,” including a hatchet, matches, compass, radio, various firearms, and canned peaches. Finally, a piece of jewelry that my dad and I can agree on! [$32, Etsy]
I came across a story this morning about a British guy who believes he has been a zombie for the last nine years. Not, like, a “Oh, hahahaha, let’s dress up for Halloween and do a zombie crawl and get totally wasted” type of zombie, but really actually a zombie. The man had tried committing suicide a decade ago, and when he woke up in the hospital, he was adamant he was dead.
To soothe himself, the guy — called “Graham” for the purposes of the story — would hang out in graveyards, communing with his fellow “dead.” This all sounds like the plot of some kind of moody teen drama, right? But actually? “Graham” was suffering from something called Cotard Delusion.
And it is insane. Keep reading »
I really, really, really want this to be an April Fool’s Day joke.
ZMB Industries, which manufactures shooting targets which all resemble zombies, has a “zombie ex-girlfriend” target of a bra-clad woman for presumably-male shooters to “kill.”
Put another way: practice murdering your ex-girlfriend, men! It’s okay! Because she’s a “zombie!”
The Bleeding Ex-Girlfriend Target sells for $89.99 and each one is “hand painted to accurately resemble an infected human that just finished gnawing on his trusted courier’s leg, to give you that realistic look so you genuinely feel the hate.” A site that sells the ex-girlfriend target, Motorcycles & Outdoors, also sells Arab “terrorist” and North Korean soldier targets. My brain can’t even process it all. I’m so disgusted at the cavalier disregard for violence against women that I don’t know what to say. [Motorcycle & Outdoors via Salon]
Earlier this week, Rachel, Jessica and I went to a screening of the new zombie movie “Warm Bodies” (in theaters February 1), and Rachel and I instantly developed uncomfortably real crush feelings for the movie’s star, Nicholas Hoult. (See also: Nicholas Hoult Gifs and Gratuitous Nicholas Hoult Photos post, please, for evidence.) Like, it’s all we’ve been talking about for the last few days and I’m starting to feel legitimately freaked out by how hot I think he is.
But here’s the thing: I’m not sure if we’re crushing on actual Nicholas Hoult or R, the character he plays in “Warm Bodies.” And yes, R is a fricking zombie. But based on R, it seems like zombies would make actually really good boyfriends. Here’s why… Keep reading »
Halloween’s just around the corner, and it’s a great excuse to get totally, totally weird. Weird with your costume and your makeup, but also weird with your household decorations and party props. We’ve found 16 or the spookiest, wildest and all around weirdest Halloween decorations around. You really need a talking tree gnome and a monster pizza, don’t you? I thought so.
“We don’t like to say LGBT families are better than hetero families,” writes the gay blog Queerty, “but, um, this one kind of is.” Truth.
Pseudodad blogger Evan Stoskopf, his hubby Ken, and their three kids wanted a family portrait, but didn’t want it to have one of those lame-o backgrounds they have at Sears. So the family engineered a zombie attack on their precious family moment and Ashley Jones Collichio from Luke Austin Photography shot the clan kicking some zombie ass, together as a family. How sweet! (No, seriously, I am a big sap and this happy family is totally making me tear up.)

A homeless guy gets most of his face eaten by a crazy, naked cannibal under a bridge in Miami. A Japanese artist removes his own genitals and serves them up on a plate. The Chinese are eating roasted fetuses. The 24-year-old woman who lost body parts to a flesh-eating virus? Terrifying! We thought this stuff only belonged in campy zombie movies and “The Simpsons” ”Treehouse Full Of Horror” Halloween specials.* Read more…
So, did you guys watch the finale of “The Walking Dead”? What did you think? I don’t actually watch the show because it’s way too scary (hey, I might be prepared for the zombie apocalypse, but that doesn’t mean I want to watch it happen!), but my friends are super into it, and I’ve noticed that beneath the blood and guts the characters are rocking some pretty cool outfits. Click through to see our version of Andrea’s signature look–skinny jeans, a slouchy pullover, cowboy hat, and sneakers, of course, so she can run like hell… Keep reading »
My dad is a survivalist who has been teaching my brothers and me to tie tourniquets and fend off attackers since we were toddlers. This month, The Frisky’s theme is “Every Woman Needs,” which seemed like the perfect opportunity to ask my dad to give us a rundown of the items you would need to survive some kind of apocalyptic event: an earthquake, asteroid strike, zombie attack, etc. Click through to check out his suggestions, and, to borrow a quote from The Hunger Games: “May the odds be ever in your favor.”
When the dead walk and the world is plunged into chaos, the only dating advice that will matter is this: the couple that beheads zombies together, stays together. But that advice doesn’t just work in a dark future where corpses hunger for human flesh. It is very practical dating advice for right now, in these last, few remaining years when the deceased stay in their coffins, rather than clawing out from their graves.
