Episode 37

Zombie-Dan

Zombie Dan gonna eat you.

Hello and welcome to our end of the world wrap-up episode, including a message from our surprise guest – the Prime Minister of Australia!

Dan recounts his experience of being part of a zombie assembly line, which included his head being cut open and getting a shotgun blast to the chest, after which they put him in a holding pen.

Jerry and Dan deconstruct the film “Cabin in the Woods,” and why it gave Jerry nightmares.

Jerry asks Dan what would be considered the zombie bible nowadays, as in, what work of zombie lore would actually be considered the authority of what is and what isn’t proper “zombism.” Specific old movies? The Walking Dead? The Zombie Survival Guide?

Both also share what lame survival plans they have for when the world ends this coming Friday. Also covered are the 8 essential elements of a proper end of the world party.

Finally! Dan now has a garden zombie!

Dan had a close encounter with a zombie at TJ Maxx … and took it home with him.

Did you like the movie Priest? Did the initial premise bother you? What did you think of the religion vs. church theme? Dan and Jerry discuss this at length.

They also touch upon Doctor Who, movies made from comic books, classic zombie movies, and … Josie and the Pussycats?

Uh, what? Josie and the Pussycats? It turns out one of them had a crush on the cartoon girls when he was a kid. Can you guess which one? Was it Dan, or Jerry?

This has nothing to do with this episode, but it’s damn cool!

Zombism is spreading. Or maybe just the bath salt drug? It will be interesting to see how it affects the upcoming presidential elections.

Only minutes before recording this episode, Jerry’s daughter introduced him to her new favorite band, “Creature Feature,” and Jerry loved it so much he used one of their songs for the outro. Good stuff! When he brought it up to Dan, Dan introduced Jerry to “The Creepy Creeps.”

Did you know there’s a special target range, and we’re talking about one with real guns, where they  teach you to survive the zombie apocalypse? Real zombie hunting with real guns? Yikes!

Speaking of which, after the inevitable happens and we’re all zombies, what happens to love? Well, fear not – there’s a zombie dating site!

Zombies in Shakespeare? Why not? This is something Jerry meant to bring up during the episode but forgot, and so he’s linking to it here: Hamlet Z

Back from our summer hiatus, Dan and I are glad that the zombie apocalypse didn’t happen without us.

Lots of good books in this episode, including Zombies on a Plane by Brooks Peck. Dan gives his belated review of the Alien kinda-prequel movie, and Jerry gives him advise on how to keep his brain from deteriorating. Also Jerry gives his review of Death Wish Coffee, the coffee strong enough to awaken the dead.
