ZombieLaw is a blog about Zombies in law and politics. I am particularly interested in zombies as a form of political consciousness and cultural metaphor. This blog is a bit of a gallimaufry of “zombie” appearance in modern language. I consider it a study of (or hunt for) real life zombies. Zombies are real in the same way Santa Claus is real, or the electron is real, or autism is real, they are words, constructions of language that serve language functions and we can study how they are used in language (with social, cultural and cognitive implications). Mostly, it’s maffling psychobabble gobshite jack-pudding; but it’s fun.
See this post from earlier this year “Why Zombies?” But the zombie meme changes a lot!!
At the moment, the best way to reach me is by commenting anywhere on this blog or @LawZombie on twitter.
Please follow this ZombieLaw blog on twitter at @LawZombie – recently I have been tweeting more “zombie” quotes than I have been blogging. There are just too many zombie references in law and politics to cover them all.

This blog was originally part of the 2012 phenomenon (before I even knew what that was) and was partially inspired by the relationship between #Anonymous and the Occupy Wall Street movement (as in the connection of spiritual-ideology and boots on the ground). Specifically this blawg effort started with the case of the parading atheist but not because I thought that story was worth reading, precisely the opposite. I started this blog because I realized the people I had been sending “zombie” references to by email, didn’t want to read them, so I’d blog the references instead. After two and a half years of regular near-daily blogging, I’m still not really sure what this blog is about or how to best define “zombie”.
The zombie portraits started when, after I had been linking other zombie pictures, I realized I could make these. The style is very simple and formalistic digital collage-style of art of overlapping layers (eye, mouth and brain). “Language is a virus” and this parody satire art is about this “zombie” viral spread.
