ZOMBIE INSURGENTS ATTACK?

i've heard a rumor... my friend who works in the graveyard said i heard a voice last night and it was wailing,
"the dead outnumber the living." they've noticed you like war, and have started to stir. i don't think the dirt will hold them down much longer. the dead may rise...
i call on the corners, and by forces beyond, may the dead rise!

march 18th

join the zombie insurgent brigade. come one, come all:

dead us soldiers, dead iraqi children, dead mothers, fathers, insurgents. the river styx is rising. portland will flood with our dead...

walk with the dead, outnumber the living.

think: "thriller meets little beirut."

bring pots and pans, drums, and your bad zombie selves.

Try Andy and Bax for cammo stuff and most toy stores and costume shops will have the makeup.

deadly living

hey , not all zombies are dead soldiers , check ?

let us expand our horizons a bit to include such visual treats as swamp zombies , voodoo priests and priestesses , nightwalkers , and many others
who might find themselves in the sketchy realms of the RISEN DEAD.

LET ALL OF THE SPIRITS FROM THE NETHER WORLD RISE UP IN OPPOSITION TO THE INSANITY !

FYI : white face makeup is cheap at any party store ....... be creative with the rest of it........

to " flesh-out " the above visual images a bit :

Swamp Zombies - think of the unattended dead after Katrina
Voodoo Zombies - think victims of Haitian massacres
Nightwalkers - think of the many who have been ' disappeared '
in the middle of the night by u.s. sanctioned
tyrants and oppressors.

and how about ,

- thousands of Iraqi women and children murdered
as ' collateral ' damage
- those who died as a result of the questionable
events of 9/11/01
- victims of Darfur genocide
- victims of police brutality
............... and the list goes on , and on , and on..
get the picture ?
and for icing on the cake , how about a
JESUS CHRIST ZOMBIE !!!!!!!!!!!

A bully entered an abandoned building with a bunch of kids. The ghosts of all the children that bully ever tormented lived there, and now they took their vengence! They invisibly picked up the bully kid and lifted him high into the air -- and the kid, terrified, didn't know what to fight against, there was nothing but thin air, holding him up and shaking him like a rag doll. And that was the end of the bully.
