“He just ripped me to ribbons. He chewed up my face. He plucked out my eyes. Basically, that’s all there is to say about it.”
“He mashed my face into the sidewalk. My face is all bent and mashed up. My eyes, my eyes got plucked out. He was strangling me in wrestling holds at the same time he was plucking my eyes out.”
The story contains a graphic image of the victim who lost nearly 80% of his face and has required multiple reconstructive surgeries.
This attack was one of the first of several face-eating, pet-eating, and other “zombie-like” incidents to occur this past Spring and Summer.
I suppose that will put an end to my thoughts about switching over to Dish from Directv. I don’t live on a farm OR a ranch. Furthermore, farms and ranches are quite possibly where zombies will strike first.
Dish has expressed interest in contracting AMC as a single channel, but that sort of deal has not been offered. The contract being offered includes lesser watched channels like WEtv, IFC, and the Sundance channel.
AMC offers acclaimed and well watched shows such as The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. But to provide those shows to their customers, Dish would also be forced to pay for this stellar lineup:
After perusing that lineup of shows, I can certainly see Dish’s point. Not only would Dish have to pay for shows like these, but the costs would obviously be passed on to its customers. Ergen’s comments about WE, IFC, and Sundance: “There hasn’t been a time when anyone in our family has watched one second of those channels”.
I can only hope now that IFC doesn’t launch some sort of a viral “Whisker Wars” protest in Chicago. Or that the streets of Pittsburgh aren’t overrun with Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys.
Here is a great video from the website putzombiesback.com. Recently Dish Network dropped AMC from their lineup for contractual reasons. There are two sides to every story, and this “zombie experiment” certainly portrays AMC as the “good guy”.
Dish Network and previously DIRECTV’s side is that increasing contract amounts would force them to raise prices for their subscribers. As a subscriber to DIRECTV, I can surely appreciate their efforts to keep contractual costs down and thereby prevent an increase in our monthly TV bills. Dish Network is in the same boat and at present, has not given in.
I do admit to a slight panic when I noticed AMC was off the air in my home. DIRECTV resolved the dispute relatively quickly however, so our family will have zombies this fall.
Regardless of where you stand on the issue, this is a very enjoyable video to watch. The controlled release of fake zombies on the streets of New York City provides for some good entertainment. I just thank God nobody took a head shot!

It seems our streets and cities are already beginning to show visible signs of a coming and current zombie apocalypse. Corey Williams, from the Associated Press has included details in his August 2nd 2012 story titled VACANT DETROIT BECOMES DUMPING GROUND FOR THE DEAD. The article highlights the decades long deterioration of the city, and the effects this deterioration has had on law enforcement.
According to the story:
Abandoned and neglected parts of the city are quickly becoming dumping grounds for the dead – at least a dozen bodies in 12 months’ time. And authorities acknowledge there’s little they can do.
As we imagine what our streets will look like after the zombies rise, it’s not difficult to see striking parallels with the current conditions of inner-city streets in cities like Detroit.
For those of use who have up until recently known very little about designer drugs such as bath salts and spice, The Metropolitan Police Department in Las Vegas has released a short informational video. The video gives a brief explanation of what the drugs look like, where they originate, and how they are packaged.
No mention of zombies in the video. However, I think the video is worth a quick watch.
The new LVMPD video provides a brief overview, with clear images of what these drug packets look like. Often, the packets have colorful labels with bogus disclaimers like “not for human consumption,” or harmless-sounding phrases like bath salts, potpourri and plant feeder. – Las Vegas Metropolitan Police
The Westboro Baptist Church, known for its controversial protests of funerals, usually military funerals, was the subject of a counter-protest by a group of zombies.
Reported by Kiro 7 Eyewitness News in Seattle on July 27th, a group dressed as zombies launched a counter-protest of the group who is notorious claiming that God is punishing the nation for its support of the gay lifestyle. The group was apparently organized through a Facebook campaign.
The zombies mixed with the uninfected in support of the soldiers and all those that have been subject to the WBC’s protests.
Regardless of my inherent fear of zombies, and my concern that we may be getting desensitized to their presence among us, I do give credit where credit is due.
