Police arrest Zombies? [26 Jul 2006|09:00pm]

'Zombies' booked for carrying fake WMDs

Tue Jul 25, 11:17 PM ET

MINNEAPOLIS - Six friends spruced up in fake blood and tattered clothing were arrested in downtown Minneapolis on suspicion of toting "simulated weapons of mass destruction."

Police said the group were allegedly carrying bags with wires sticking out, making it look like a bomb, while meandering and dancing to music as part of a "zombie dance party" Saturday night.

"They were arrested for behavior that was suspicious and disturbing," said Lt. Gregory Reinhardt, a police spokesman. Police also said the group was uncooperative and intimidated people with their "ghoulish" makeup.

One group member said the "weapons" were actually backpacks modified to carry a homemade stereos and the suspects were jailed without reason. None of the six adults and one juvenile arrested have been charged.

"Given the circumstance of them being uncooperative ... why would you have those (bags) if not to intimidate people?" said Inspector Janee Harteau. "It's not a case of (police) overreacting."

Harteau also said police were on high alert because they'd gotten a bulletin about men who wear clown makeup while attacking and robbing people in other states.

Kate Kibby, one of those arrested, said previous zombie dance parties at the Mall of America and on light-rail trains have occurred without incident. Last fall, nearly 200 people took part in a "zombie pub crawl" in northeast Minneapolis.

Kibby said they were cooperative and followed the two officers to the station where they were questioned and eventually loaded into a van and booked into jail.

"It was clear to us that they were trying to get a rise out of us," Kibby said.

Members of the group could face lesser charges like disorderly conduct, police said

So what celebrity (or wanna be celebrity) would you like to see have their brain eaten by Zombies?

In a movie, of course, never in real life ;-)

Character Profiles [18 Jan 2005|11:14pm]

[ mood | exhausted ]

Just two for right now because my brain is practically infertile from watching Carnivale all day. This is my second method of procrastination.

Dave - Nineteen. Blond hair, kinda shaggy. Surfer, probably ex-pat from California. He's mostly interested in the philosophy of all living things, especially anything to do with the ocean. He does not eat seafood due to what he calls "religious reasons". However, despite this, he has worked at every fast food place imaginable -- including Long John Silver's -- because it freed up more time for surfing.

Maddox - 'Dox for short. Early twenties. Med student (hence the 'Dox). The eldest in his family, he has two younger sisters and is in college on a scholarship. Though he comes across as a pretentious know-it-all at first, underneath it all he just wants to help and lives for the day when he might be in a theatre and someone screams, "is there a doctor in the house?!". He speaks fluent Latin.

Until next time!

Opening Credits [14 Jan 2005|11:47am]

[ mood | creative ]

It's been a while, but that doesn't mean that the zombifcation process has been lying dormant. Oh no, I've got a plethora of ideas.

The first of which is the opening credits. As previously mentioned, we were going to have the hero(ine)s start off at the Taco Bell at the Student Union. And so I thought, why not have them drive there? Conversely, now that I stop to think about it, it would still work if we had them walk there. So. Whichever.

It could start out in the hero(ine)s' dorm room, said roommates agreeing on where to eat, the song cuts in from the playlist on the computer, which the girls leave running as they leave. The song continues (either out of someone's boombox or out of the car radio) until they get into the student union. Remember the beginning to Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, where the camera freezes on the characters while the narration is going on? Kind of like that, only sans narration.

Character profiles coming soon. Swear.

10 Things to do when you are dead [16 Dec 2004|08:23pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

10. "The Classic Nikki Sixx Answering Machine Message" - Hello, you've reached ___________, I can't come to the phone right now because I'm dead.

9. Default on all your debts and if possible - have your extended family pick up the tab.

8. Publish all your sordid "too hot for livejournal" content.

7. Have the mortician give you a "David Bowiesque Glam Rock" look. - Won't Grandma love the lipstick?

6. Have your friends take you out for a night on the town - or a "Weekend at Bernie's."

5. Install PA rocks around your grave - leave a loop recording of yourself going "stop fucking on my grave - don't you know what happens to people that have sex in horror movies?!?"

4. Leave all your money to your friends so they can throw one last party in your honor - hire Aerosmith to play because you know they will all still be alive.

3. Get a taxidermist to "stuff" you - that way, you can be kept around the house as a conversation piece, scare those bratty neighborhood kids, and/or human doorstop.

2. Three Words - "No New Taxes!"

1. Eat babies!

Last night Ren and I went to Taco Bell. Well, not the real Taco Bell, just the one inside our Student Union here on campus, which...actually makes it more the Student Union and less of an actual Taco Bell...

I've gotten off topic.

In any case, whilst we were a the Taco Bell, eating our tacos nonetheless, I wondered if a human being could theoretically live off of tacos should, you know, a zombie apocalypse actually occur. So. Given that we really didn't have a good existing framework for the script to begin with, I postulated that a scene like this, where two friends were discussing something completely random, such as whether or not humans could actually live off of tacos (zombie apocalypse excluded, obviously, because that'll come later), would set the movie up for the kind of style we're going for.

And then, perhaps to tie it all together at the end, we could have another scene at the end of the film which also takes place at the Taco Bell, but this time, you know, everyone'd be dead, so instead of a debate, there'd be an argument about who is actually going to be cooking the tacos.

Of course, it'll all be much funnier once we have the dialog of it fleshed out.


Zombie Flick Survival Rules....Part One [04 Dec 2004|09:29pm]

[ mood | devious ]

1. Never Stay At Home - We all know that the newscasters, military, goverment, and etc said to "Lock your door and stay in your home" - which is funny because they used to tell us to "duck and cover" during the cold war.

2. Shoot/Chop/Hit the zombies in the freakin' head! - Too often, would-be hero(ins) waste precious ammunition on pointless shots to the torso, arms, and legs. Look - zombies are like people cracked out on PCP - they feel no pain - one bullet to the head - leave no "twitchers."

3. No Sex - I think this rule applies to almost any type of horror-flick. One must understand that the core conflict in most horror flicks is the struggle between good and evil. Because of the hundreds of years of our "conservative guilt trip," sex has been deemed - bad. In the instance that you are cornered by a character that wishes to engage in such coital claptrap, I suggest you use that "duck and cover" method that our goverment proudly endorses!

4. Never Travel Alone (The Mystery Machine Clause) - If someone ever suggests that you "split up and look for clues," you may invoke the Mystery Machine Clause and respond curtly with "Fuck You Freddy, I'm staying right here with Scooby in the Van!"

Inspired [04 Dec 2004|06:04pm]

[ mood | creative ]

Last night was a zombie movie marathon. Resident Evil, Dawn of the Dead and Shaun of the Dead. A more thorough review of the latter two will be forthcoming.

So what's this all about if it's not a movie review? Well, I think the conversations will speak for themselves.

Me: Are we going to dinner?
Ren: Well, if we are, I'm going to have to get dressed.
Me: Me too. *pause* I guess I should go check my laundry.
Ren: ... I guess you should.
Me: *walking out* ... *coming back in* We could make a really cool zombie movie!
Ren: Yeah, we could.
Me: Exactly like this. Except for, you know, I'd get attacked on the way to the laundry room. But I wouldn't die because I'm not that stupid.
Ren: So let's do it.

And later:

Ren: You know what would be really cool? If nobody watched the news and didn't know that there were zombies all around.
Me: I don't think that would happen, you know, given my penchant for zombie films.
Ren: Yeah, but do you think we'd believe you? We'd just think that you were drunk again.
Me: Yeah, okay.

You heard it here first, folks. Ren and I will be collaborating on a new zombie project! Aren't you lucky? I now return you to your life, previously in progress.

Welcome to zombie_flick. What is zombie_flick, you may ask? Easy. It's our way of posting ideas (and keeping track of our plotlines) for the zombie movie we're writing.

Who's writing it, you may ask? Even easier. punctuates and kageotogi, the maintainers of this community, of course!
