Zombie Dirt Pale Ale Recipe Kit – Northern Brewer

Were in the face of an epidemic where Citra is the only curebut its been hidden under lock and key! Weve hoarded every last bit we could get our hands on and thrown it into a limited quantity of Zombie Dirt kitsas many as we could make with dwindling stores of the harvest. Act now and save yourself! Brew as much Zombie Dirt as you can before its too late.

One whiff of the infectious aromatics is enough to reanimate the dead. Zombie Dirt is a ballad to the epicly hard-to-find pale ale of the Midwest, an epidemic centered just outside of Chicago. Loaded with 8 oz. of pure Citra hops, this pale ale is rarer than zombified-unicorn dust.

Staggering citrus, melon and passion fruit come alive in this pale, single-hop Citra showcase. Toasty malt limps in the background as the apocalyptic bite of grapefruit-honeydew hop character lurches forward. Zombie Dirt is the only defense against homebrew hunger, but a single pint is never enough protection.

Plants vs. Zombies – Download

Plants vs. Zombies is a fun and easy game where you have to fight off the undead with an unusual weapon, the plants that grow in your garden.

Plants vs. Zombies is no doubt a bit different. Hordes of zombies want to eat your brain and will do whatever it takes to get to your house. You’ll encounter a whole range of zombies, from the ordinary undead, to rugby players, divers, and dancers.

Although you’ll have to make use of strategy and tactics to survive, every few levels, Plants vs. Zombies is broken up with mini-games like bowling, although you’ll have wallnuts for a ball and zombies instead of pins. These and other challenges will earn you points that you can use later to buy new plant species or improve the ones you already have.

In addition to the original Adventure mode, Plants vs. Zombies comes with other modes to entertain you for hours. In the Survival mode, you’ll have to defend yourself from an endless horde of zombies so that you can test how long you last, while in the Zen Garden mode, you’ll have time to relax and take care of your plants before you reap the benefits of your gardening skills.

To protect yourself from the zombies, you’ll have many flowers and vegetables to choose from: shooting flowers, nuts to slow down your enemies, or mushrooms and daisies that will help you harvest points of light to use as currency to grow new plants. All these plants will help make your home zombie-proof.

Plants vs. Zombies is controlled using the mouse. The moves are easy to perform, which will help you handle yourself in advanced missions.

The Plants vs. Zombies learning curve is extremely smooth: the game leaves you relatively free in early missions, to the point where it feels like you’re taking a leisurely stroll. This minimal difficulty gradually increases until the hellish final attacks, where you have to plan your defense perfectly and use resources well.

Technically, Plants vs. Zombies isn’t exactly a cutting-edge game, but it certainly doesn’t lack anything. Its got fun characters with a remarkable design that at some points, sees you actually starting to care for the curious-looking undead.

Undoubtedly, Plants vs. Zombies is one of the most fun and addictive games you can play on PC. The number of both plants and zombies is huge, but they’re gradually introduced so that you can avoid getting stuck on a level for a long time.

Players Are Turning Battlegrounds Into A Zombie Nightmare – Kotaku

GIF

In Battlegrounds, players engage in a battle royale where they must scavenge weapons and gear, sneaking around to kill each other until only one of them is left standing. A new community-created game mode, popular with streamers, pits one squad against countless ravenous zombies for that turns the tactical shooter into a full- blown horror game.

In Zombie mode, four players team up to fight an entire server thats completely unified against them. Everyone else pretends to be a raving zombie, often , armed with nothing but crowbars, machetes, frying pans, and their fists. Zombies do not sneak, like a normal player would: they rush down on the squad by the dozens in a frenzy. Squads, meanwhile, arm themselves with whatever scavenged goods they find in an attempt to fend off the horde. The result is a terrifying bloodbath, as you can see in this video by jackfrags.

Jackfrags is not alone in showcasing the new mode. Streamers like StoneMountain and PsiSyn has also managed to pull off massive zombie hunts. The sheer spectacle of a zombie match initially seems at odds with Battlegrounds overall tone. The game tends to eschew constant streams of violence for a process of extended downtime. This is particularly true in free-for-all matches and duos, where players are often stealthily scavenging from point to point. Matches typically start explosively, as players rush to arm themselves before slowing down until the last few survivors stand in the games shrinking play space.

Zombies goes in another direction that nevertheless makes sense. Recalling mods like DayZ, the match turns into an extended chase as the numerous zombies bear down. It puts everything into the extreme as on-the fly communication becomes even more crucial, as does picking the right place to dig in and fight. It is Battlegrounds with the dial cranked up to eleven.

While it might be difficult to properly coordinate a zombies match, it is always full of surprises. A barricaded last stand or desperate sprint across expansive fields takes on a new dimension when facing off against a constant stream of baddies.

If were lucky, an official version will come to Battlegrounds and well get to enjoy all the excitement of running around naked with a legion of frying pan toting buddies and beating the shit out of some very foolish squads.

George Romero’s Next Film Is a Race Car Zombie Movie – IGN – IGN

Share.

Night of the Living Dead filmmakerGeorge A. Romero’s next project is a race car zombie movie.

Romero co-wrote the film, titled George A. Romero Presents: Road of the Dead,with Matt Birman, who’s also directing. The movie will make its way to Frontires,theFantasia International Film Festivals annual film co-production market in Montreal, which takes place from July 20 to July 23, according to Indiewire.

Birman was a second unit director on Romero’s last three films, including Survival of the Dead, Diary of the Dead and Land of the Dead. Hefirst pitched the idea of Road of the Dead almost 10 years ago, which Birman says takes heavy inspiration from Ben-Hur, Rollerball and The Road Warrior. The story follows zombie prisoners racing cars for the wealthy in a modern-day Coliseum on a remote island.

Last year, Romero discussed the current state of zombie movies and why, because of the success of The Walking Dead, he can’t make zombie films of “substance” anymore.

Medieval English Mutilated the Dead to Prevent Zombie Apocalypse – Haaretz

Burned, savaged bodies from 700 to 1100 years ago that archaeologists found in Yorkshire shows that obsessing about living undead is nothing new

Were the burghers of medieval Yorkshire so terrified of zombies that they would resort to desecrating their own dead? That seems to be the most likely explanation for the discovery in Wharram Percy, one of many abandoned medieval villages in Yorkshire, of bodies dating from the 11th to 14th centuries C.E., showing evidence of extensive mutilation.

Wharram Percy was a small farming town, consisting in the medieval period of just two facing rows of dwellings. The archaeologists found 137 bones, “representing the substantially incomplete remains of a minimum of ten individuals,” they note drily. The bodies were of both sexes and ranged in age from two years to over 50.

After death, the bodies were decapitated, dismembered and burned. The question is why.

Belief in, and fear of, the walking dead, was very real in the Middle Ages. Images abound from the Middle Ages of living people being pursued by skeletons. It is true that there is no consensus about what those images represented, but that said, stories of the undead abounded.

Orderic Vitalis, a 12th century Benedictine monk, wrote in Book 8 of his Ecclesiastical History about a priest named Walchelin, who, in 1091 C.E., was returning from visiting a sick parishioner when he was confronted with what seemed to be an army of the dead. Now I do indeed see the shades of the dead with my own eyes, Walchelin thought, according to Orderic.

Soon after, in the late 12th century C.E. a Yorkshire monk and historian named William of Newburgh wrote about a walking corpse in Berwick. The corpse only rested when locals dug the body up and dismembered it. For all that, according to his own biographers, he took great pride in relying on accurate sources, William was renowned for his descriptions of “revenants”, namely the living dead of various sorts, including vampires.

“It would not be easy to believe that the corpses of the dead should sally (I know not by what agency) from their graves, and should wander about to the terror or destruction of the living,” William wrote if not for the “abundant testimony”.

He for one thought it a “modern” phenomenon because the ancient writings are very extensive but do not mention walking undead, and if there had been any, they would have, William thought.

But are the corpse mutilations of Wharram Percy evidence of an attempt in practice to stop the dead from rising? Or could it have meant something else to the abusers?

Strange burials for strangers

When discussing reasons for corpse mutilation in history, prevention of a zombie outbreak is not usually the first theory.

However, in the case of Wharram Percy, the theory gains credence because one seemingly more likely alternative was ruled out.

Prof. Alistair Pike of the University of Southampton and one of the leaders of the project, first theorized that the bodies may have been mistreated because they did not belong to the local area. Strangers might have been subject to abuse, including after death.

However, isotopic analysis on the teeth of the corpses showed they did grow up locally. The isotopes in the teeth matched the local geology, says Pike. This means that the individuals who were mutilated upon death grew up close to where they were buried, likely in the village of Wharram Percy itself.

While this is not proof positive of the theory that the corpses were mutilated to prevent them from rising from the dead, it does rule out the theory that these people were mutilated because they were strangers.

What about cannibalism?

From ancient to modern times, cannibalism has been practiced to ward off famine. Modern tales include the Siege of Leningrad and the Donner Party.

Between the years of 1066 C.E. and 1300 C.E., at least ten large-scale famines were recorded in England (Kershaw 1973). And the evidence of burning could suggest cooking fires. However, finding reliable accounts of cannibalism due to famine from the Middle Ages has proven difficult.

But, could dismemberment for cooking be what the evidence from Wharram Percy shows?

Most of the knife marks on the bones from Wharram Percy are in the head and neck areas, showing evidence of decapitation. No such marks were found at large joints and areas of muscle attachments, as would likely be the case if the bodies had been butchered for food.

Also, close examination of the bones ruled out the theory that perhaps the dead had been selected for “non-normative burial” because of unusual skeletal conditions.

The idea that the Wharram Percy bones are the remains of corpses burnt and dismembered to stop them from walking from their graves seems to fit the evidence best, concludes Simon Mays, a human skeletal biologist with Historic England.

This interpretation is based on the surviving accounts of what were usually churchmen, who used them as anecdotes to make a point. It is therefore difficult to determine if the people of the time truly believed in zombies, but as they were illiterate while the churchmen could read, they may well have.

Six Classroom Elements Learned from Zombie Films – Faculty Focus (blog)

College courses, like movies, can inspire, entertain, shock, or repulse. Instructors produce, direct, and star in a series of semester-long scenes, complete with audiences, critics, and awards. If your course could be equated to a movie genre, what would we be watching? Would we see a romantic comedy, focused on relationship-building and a predictable, subtle narrative? Perhaps it would be an action film colorfully energetic, thrilling for some, and uncomfortable for others. Current research on learning suggests you may want to consider plot elements in zombie films as you design your courses. Heres why.

Zombie films offer a framework for us to understand important elements of the learning process. Without each of these six elements, zombie film characters failure is inevitable. As we develop our courses, lets use what we know from zombie film plots to write a script where our students have all the tools they need to successfully make it through the semester.
