Don't Turn Out the Lights

OR Rick Grimes appears and not in a steamy dreamy kind of way...
Also I miss The Walking Dead. October is SO far away. How are you all getting by with no zombies? Me? Watching some other zombie shows like iZombie (see my recaps!) and having my zomlit. Never can get enough. 

Want this cover? Etsy is your go to!

Dead Yoga

Yoga is a relaxing meditation and it seems all want to feel zen...even when they are dead. 
"Zombie Yoga" art print by Rob Osborne brings serenity on a 11"x17" archival fine art paper. Get yours and other nerdy yoga collections on Etsy!

I'm all about random art and this is looking appealing to me :).

Zombie Horse Mask

So for the last few years buying horse masks has been like a weird fad or meme to do. Super strange in my opinion AND CREEPY. So why not make it more creepy with zombification. And it glows in the dark!

You'll be horsing around in this guy for about $30

Grab Bag

The perfect bag to have your gear in clearly labeled for the apocalypse! Even might deterred others from stealing it if they think the blood is real. 

The Walking Dead bag has 3 compartments, padded shoulders and made out of polyester.

Welcome to my World

Besides being a zombie enthusiast or a unicorn tamer, I am a Library Technician for one of the local school divisions in my city. Part of my job that I love being able to do is decorate our library and being involved with activities....and scaring children. JK!

Since I love me some zombies I have pushed the whole zombie awareness month to our students (come to the dark side!!) and so glad at the response and involvement! I want to share with you now some photos of displays, crafts, and my home away from home :)

 Today in fact we did a craft with the Grade 3-5s, some younger and older students as well, and the craft was to create zombie rocks. I got the idea here but with some collaboration came up with putting googly eyes on to speed up the process and all the rocks were painted ahead of time. Kids just had to pick a rock, draw on what they wanted it to look like, then glue some eyes and paint on some white.  The one to the left is my example kids had to follow.
I know...I'm a true Picasso.  


 Some of the wee ones were given the option to draw themselves as zombies from this template. I even provided a sample again. SO proud of how these turned out. 

 My lovely and most awesomest Teacher Librarian, friend, and co-worker pumped out these zombies shambling their way into our YA section. READ BOOKS! Creates good brains!
 I know it is all tiny but if you look close I added some cute zombies to my children's display. Nothing like zombies frolicking in the flowers and butterflies to bring a smile to your face.
 Our zombie rocks this afternoon are now displayed in the Zombie Awareness display. SO adorbs! Some kids got a little crazy with the white paint but truly impressed how these look.
Mine is in the middle facing out :)

This is just the display as a whole. To make kids really think about survival rather than brain eating corpses, I promoted the survivalist approach in the display and I'm hoping I didn't cause any nightmares this month, besides my own after seeing some of the kids' art.

I think it is really important to get kids talking about survival in any instant, to promote some crafting, get kids reading, use their imagination and to freakin have some fun in the whole process.

Mission complete.

iZombie Recap: Dead Air

art from here
The Crime:
A radio talk show host is electrified and killed on air after a threat was made about coming after the slutty chick, Sasha the host in this case, who was banging Cheated on in Chattanooga's husband. Jane the producer was jealous of Sasha's success since they were once radio co-hosts and Sasha ruined Jane's career. Jane therefore goes and gets Sasha killed to take over her show. 

Zowers (Zombie Powers):

  • Psychoanalysis of people's relationships and a sex expert
  • Straightforward, cutthroat advice 


Major news: Peyton and Ravi are there to meet Major get out after a night of beating. Major hears the news about Jerome and Eddie bodies being found. Major starts lacking faith in the local police department. (He should!) 
His girlfriend dumps him after seeing that he keeps getting into trouble and beaten up. FREE AGAIN! Also Major was fired from his youth counselling and keeps obsessing over the brain he saw, convinced it was not a cow brain. Then he goes and does the next dumb thing and tries to buy a gun!

Meanwhile...:
OMG score one for Livwell (Liv and Lowell for those who aren't all over this already). BOW CHICKA WOW WOW. Twice! Also, Liv sees dumb Blaine show up at Lowell's building....
Ravi meets Peyton and little sparks fly. AWE! Ravi gets info from Liv and makes the call on his own to go after Peyton. 
Suzuki and Blaine were the ones that moved the bodies of the kids in the last episode. Seem to be working with one another. Blaine delivers the brains; Suzuki cleans up. Suzuki is getting sick of it but Blaine has him since he is his meal ticket. Suzuki is aware Liv is for "team Z" now.



Nourishment:
Brain salad
Scrambled brains

Brainy lines

  • "Sex on the other hand? That's back on the menu." - Liv
  • "Who were you fighting this week?" - Peyton "Sons of Anarchy I think." - Major
  • "The Lanister's send their regards" - Liv after discovering all the brainless mice
  • "We've got a chick in the studio right now begging for someone to bang a little color back into her cheeks." - Chuck, the rival radio host
  • "Moving those kids' bodies was too much." - Suzuki "Emotionally? Cause physically it shouldn't have been that hard. How heavy are bones?" - Blaine
  • "Who did this to you?" - Liv "I can't talk about fight club. Crap." - Major


Thoughts

  • Good to know zombies can screw. 
  • Everybody on the Livwell or RaviOli train. I don't think Liv and Ravi have a romantic bond. I haven't seen it myself. Just cause they are co-workers and goof with eachother doesn't mean they should date. Agree?
  • NOOOOOO!!! Ravi got bit!
  • UH OH! Liv had one of Lowell's brain pieces in the eggs and turns out it was Jerome's!!! I think Lowell is getting his brains from Blaine. Shit got real. 


Zombie Count
10. I'm counting the zombie rat.




iZombie Recap: Maternity Liv

get art here
Sorry I am like 2 weeks late on these one guys!

The Crime

Emily Sparrow shows up in the woods after 8 months wounded and dying. She dies but her baby is taken to hospital. Rumors are the boyfriend may have caused her harm. Emily ended up being kidnapped by a dog catcher along with some other girls to be sister wives. 




Zowers (Zombie Powers):

  • Maternal instincts 
  • Attachment to the Sparrow baby


Major news: Major accidentally gets Clive quoted in a newspaper indicating the lost kids aren't his priority. Major is still trying to get info on the Candyman and gets the license plates, tracks the car down, break into it, causing him to get arrested but not before he sees a container with human brains in it. This gets him in a cell with some troubled guys to say "Thank you" on behalf of the police for the quote in the paper. 

Meanwhile...: 
Kids are still missing and the press is getting demanding. Um....remains of the kids were found at the dog catcher's place....oh that doesn't seem right.
Liv and Ravi are trying to keep tabs on Blaine.
Ravi is starting to test different levels of Utopium to find out what dosage caused zombism.
Liv's mom gives the Evan the application for Blaine's scary butcher shop.
Liv and Lowell had some weird vibes going on. Turns out Lowell had brains of a gay guy in his system. Made for a drunk and laughing montage.  

Nourishment:
Brains and maybe chow mien noodles
"Protein" shake


Brainy lines

  •  "Unless you have the urge to make me lunch and do my laundry." "You wish. Have you really not eaten lunch?" She keeps asking him if he is hungry. - Liv and Ravi
  • "Awesome sauce" - Lowell
  • "They didn't get this at IKEA." - Clive "No this is what Rumpelstiltskin carves for you after you promise him your first born" - Liv
  • "Look Beetlejuice I don't remember saying your name three times..." - Emily's boyfriend to Liv


Thoughts

  • Liv's bro Evan better not end up butchered or zombified. 
  • Really hope Liv and Lowell get closer. Loving these two!
  • OMG Suzuki is just all over his zombie skills using it to be unstoppable in his police skills. But killing people, even if they are the bad guys and you are using them to cover up your own trail of dead bodies while being in cahoots with Blaine, is a terrible thing to do. Suzuki seems totally aware of Liv now too. 
  • OH shit the rats are being eaten! Success in the zombie rat experiment I guess.
