This Halloween we remember that one day Zombies will be real hopefully and you wont need a costume!

vampire with her friend gothic love photoIts that time of the year again were everyone else becomes as creepy as you! You being if you are a horror fan like us at ZSA! Zombies, clowns, werewolves, witches, politicians, these are the scariest costumes you could wear and we love it! Many of our folks at ZSA are choosing to be zombies because we simply love it, but some of us are Goths like myself and Vampires is what i’m doing! Well to be honest its a year round thing, but like I said, its fun to overdo it on Halloween! Just a little, moderation is always a good thing. Blood is scarce nowadays -_- lol

💀 Is Halloween Changing?

 I’m especially worried how Halloween spirit is being massacred by governing issues these days aswell as things that just ruin Halloween. For starters kids in America want money rather than candy, you could say they are getting savvy and with the times, but I say they are getting greedy, careless. This will maybe be the generation that will destroy Halloween to replace it with fads and trends that have nothing to do with dressing up in fantasy, horror costumes and letting this feast be for kids to meet the neighborhood and adults some party time as it was all this time! Not to mention the butthurt and offense over everything these days! I mean ZSA got a message that a Halloween article of scary lawn decorations was offensive…Excuse me? Its halloween, what else are we to put up? Care bears so no one is offended? That would probably offend someone also by the way!  In France due to terrorism scares the police have advised no costumes carry real life looking weapons as the police might take it as a threat and people might panic. Last year a guy in costume and fake gun, pretended it was real and terrorized a party and now we get these new rules, ruining Halloween for the rest of us all! Soon in America also! Ah this world being ruined by the nasty who misuse their freedoms and make life hard for the rest of us, I guess dressing up as Sheriff Rick Grimes this Halloween is out of the question if you are in France! Blasphemy lol. But ironically dressing up as a giant cockroach is fine! :/ Halloween is also a money making business, it brings 2 billion dollars to the candy industry in America, but if you brush your teeth, it wont cost you that much. Plus in moderation once again.  Dried fruits are also one of my favorite and no its not candy bashing, its extra fun! I love Halloween, i’m going to get some small chocolates if my busy schedule allows!

Well anyhow, all in all Americans and the world who love American traditions despite what they say are enjoying Halloween. So accompany your kids for trick or treat, stay home watch a scary movie, go to the movies with pals, have a zombie pinata party with friends, or scare your neighbor with a friendly prank and try not to get shot. Whatever you do have a Happy and Safe Halloween! Next time this year the zombies might have overtaken the world so best enjoy life now while you still can.

Happy 4 Infectious Years to ZSA today!

 

4 YEARS BIRTHDAY ZOMBIE SAFE AREA

Yay and many more! Join our facebook page today!

zsa fourth anniversary

Yes its already been 4 Years! Only!

July 24th 2011, was the day after being a fan of the zombie genre for years and then watching the walking dead season 1,  the facebook zombie pages enthusiasm was at its best and Facebook was also! Pages were flourishing and people were happy and I wanted to make a page also and I came up with the name Zombie Safe Area as it seemed original compared to what I was seeing on facebook and it is what most Zombie Survivors need as a base in the ZPOC.  Some other zombies pages helped me out when I had just 10 likes, and it went up and later I added some new admins & many new awesome members and it went zomballistic from there. We have had our Ups and Downs but thats life in the Zombie Apocalypse for ya.

ZSA thanks you all for making it such a fun ride! Couldnt have done it without all our fans and ZSA family!

Booyah!

Why Zombies?

Why Zombies?

By Jon “DoubleTap” Britton

02560df2f0d15b4a8618dba685a77dcaLately I have been questioning myself, and society as a whole, regarding the rise of the Zombie Apocalypse sub-culture and my own fascination with zombies of late. I guess I have to start with my own thinking and try to expand that to the sub-culture and society at large. First of all, I have long been interested in politics which I am convinced plays a large part in the rise of the zombie sub-culture. At the same time I have watched the decline of our civilization in many ways, from a moral decline to a decline in peoples’ acceptance of personal responsibility. Throughout modern history there have been many groups that have held apocalyptic beliefs and prepared for the end of the world as we know it.  Jonestown, Heaven’s Gate, militias, Y2K and the list goes on, but what is different now? Past Doomsday groups have usually had a specific date in mind, but current Zombie Apocalypse preppers and other modern preppers in general have no such timeline, other than it could happen at anytime. FYI, for those who don’t know, a prepper is someone who prepares for some type of apocalyptic event, ranging from just being prepared to survive some type of natural disaster to financial/governmental collapse to a Zombie Apocalypse. To many people, the world has been teetering on the edge of destruction for a long time, famines, droughts, tsunamis, the dust bowl, great depression, world wars, etc…

confused-zombie-588x392So, how does this all relate to zombies? I believe that zombies have become a metaphorical representation of society in the modern world. We have what some call “Sheeple” that seem to blindly follow the media and whatever view of the world they deem fit to air or print. People who have forgone their individual strength in favor of government checks, food stamps and programs. We have sports zombies that can quote team stats to the most minute detail, but don’t know who their representatives are in the state or federal government. We have a generation of video game zombie kids. TV zombies that are more tuned into Americal Idol or Dancing with the Stars than the economic strife and political turmoil going on around them. We have “Occupiers” that gather en masse in cities all over the world with no agenda other than to complain about the rich 1% instead of putting that effort into becoming the 1%. So, when you stop and think about it, we are surrounded by zombies of some sort on a daily basis. Mindless masses going through life on auto-pilot.

33737465afe573ca2a42e89680ccf08dNow, when we bring all these things together, is it any surprise that the zombie apocalypse sub-culture is growing? More and more people are starting to wake up to the state of the world, the economy, their governments and so on. Many have begun prepping for whatever they perceive as the most pressing threat, but in doing so try to make sure they are prepared for ANY eventuality. Others find that type of prepping to be depressing and/or fatalistic, so just add zombies and it’s a little more palletable. Ironically, zombies also seem to fit their view of the current world condition whether they realize it consciously or not. Zombies, being mindless creatures driven by the basest instincts too feed, this metaphor could apply to those who seem to mindlessly pursue money or power. Those who mindlessly follow the mainstream media or look to the government to fulfill all their needs. Those who mindlessly envy or covet the success and the wealth of others and abdicate their own ability and individual power to achieve.

ZombiesZombiphiles, from what I have seen, seem to be a combination of self-reliant preppers, gun enthusiasts that foresee government restrictions and fun-loving free thinkers. Zombie prep seems to be a fun way to prepare for the worst. Zombie Crawls, zombie themed shooting contests, etc… all seems to put a little fun into serious concerns. That is “Why Zombies?”, zombies represent a metaphorical view of society and put a little light-heartedness into preparing for disaster, be it financial, governmental or natural disasters. For me zombies are definitely a metaphor of society, for others they are just fun and for some they are the ultimate underdog challenge. In America especially, the underdog is an icon, a force to be reckoned with. I believe this is another driving factor behind the rise of the zombiphiles. There is something alluring about a small rag-tag group of survivors facing countless hordes of undead, surviving and slaying the hordes in large numbers.745b044cd4872ba59a4c16df3e52708c

So, that’s my take on zombies, the zombie apocalypse and the rise of a unique sub-culture. Societal metaphor, sense of impending doom on many fronts, attraction to the underdog aspects and just plain fun.
