This board is to be used only to introduce yourself, if you're a new member, or to re-introduce yourself if you're a known member of the zombie community or have just come back from a hiatus.

In case I don't see your post for a day or two, let me say welcome to the MSS forums to you right now. Hope you enjoy your stay.

I'll stick my head in to say hi in your thread as soon as I swing by.

As for me, I'm a starving artist paying the bills working as a store manager and writing when I can. I've been writing since I was 10. It never seems to go anywhere--most folk pass right over my work. I see burgeoning authors getting noticed left and right, but I plod on writing for the joy of it. Someday I'll get something published. That is, after all, the ultimate goal, isn't it? I can relax once I see a novel on bookstore shelves with my name on the spine.

I live by myself in a one-story house in the country on one-and-a-half acres, nestled on a hilltop by a forest, and the rent is expensive. I'm looking to buy a house, because with rates at their state today, I'd be saving money on a mortgage payment every month. I drive a Ford Explorer 4x4, and I run the hell out of it, taking it off road every chance I get. There is no apple orchard or hunting trail in this county I haven't explored.  I own no pets, but I do have two Wandering Jews and a Rubber tree. (those are plants, you fucks.)

I jam to classic rock, real punk, classical, and GOOD techno, like Aphex Twin and Prodigy. At the moment of this writing I'm listening to AC/DC. Old school 4eva. I hate rap and pop with a passion and will stab you if you try to play it in my general vincinity.

Hi all,

I have been throughly enjoying the Saga and the posts. Ever since I saw the original NOTLD have been an avid fan of zombies.

 

Was in construction most of my life. For the last 10 years running my own home inspection company and flipping small homes. After dreaming about it for almost 30 years finally got my place in the country. A small 23 acre farm where the nearest neighbor is at least half a mile a way. Love to tinker in the big shop there. In the back of my mind thinking about wacky inventions to thwart a zombie invasion. Also set up a nice shooting range just to maintain the skills.

 

Anybody interested in talking shop about construction, shooting, real estate, metaphysics, or zombie theory drop me a line.

Okay, I'll play.

 

Your cousin called and told me to tell you that you need to shave, because your hairs are tickling his balls too bad.

Z, I was wondering about what other kinds of stories you have written? My guess is you have a trunk full of old stuff. Other than zombies what has been some of your favorite subjects? Did you ever get anything published?

 

What made you decide to create this site? Was it hard to do? Has it turned out like you expected?

Just a curious fan.

 

Thanks

Alex

Baltimore resident,30 something with a history of loving pretty much anything zombie related.  I was pointed to this website from someone on another message board and found the story really intriguing.  Work in an office so posting on message boards is a great way to pass the time.

 

Married with a little one on the way and two dogs, so my chances of surviving a zombie infestation has just dropped a few levels

Long before I found ZS, HorrorWatch and MSS, I was on BigSoccer.  Nico is the name I use to talk to non-horror (aka sports) fans

Thanks for the welcome, hopefully Z can keep up with us so we have new bits to discuss.  But from what I have seen, this doesn't seem to be the case.

Make it 4!

From London now living in mid Wales. Mid 30's.

Wired up illegal raves in early 90's (stared age 15, everyone else to mashed to hook up decks and amps etc), then college (audio eng),then studio tech & tech manager.  Now do audio forensics freelance after getting sick of pulling 70 hr weeks and told what a great business the film & tv world is. It isn't. It's full of wankers.

Supporter of West Ham United since birth. Though I am sick of the big girls blouses that now pervade the sport in the UK. Ponce's the lot of 'em.

Bitter and ale drinker. (balls to that fizzy crapola larger)

Into 60's and 70's rock (Floyd/Hendrix/Stones etc - I will stab you if you insist the Beatles are the best band in the world) / early and intelligent techno & early 'rave' (Underground Resistance / Kraftwerk and the like) / Classical (esp Choral and Vaughan Williams kind of stuff) / Old dance hall and soul / bules / traditional and early english & american folk & county.

All Rap and new R&B artists should be sent to N Korea to collectivly push the button on their next nuke test - from zero feet away.

Target Shooter. Hill walker.

Zed / horror / sci fi film fan since 12 (Ramero's Dawn, sneaked in to my older brothers party once they'd had a skinful and put it on to 'chill out').

Hey guys,

My name's Shaun, I'm 22 (23 on monday, *feigns excitement*) from Leicestershire, UK. I have a chronic inability to dislike any zombie movie, no matter how awful or sell-out-y. I wish I was lying.

I work in Security... because all the good jobs were taken. I'm also a weekend warrior in the TA! I do enjoy writing, I have a couple of short stories. One day I'll write a novel, trouble is I start and usually 6 chapters in I start correcting things and eventually go, "This sucks, what the hell was I thinking?!" hit my head on the desk, take a couple of months out and begin another short story. Starting an Eng Lit degree soon though, so one day, one day...

Currently keeping my widowed grandma company whilst somehow managing to date a ballet dancer, who's also a photographer...only catch, her parents are both philosophers! Yikes!

I saw Fright Night when I was about 6 and got hooked on dodgy horrors! Return of the Living Dead III was the first zombie film I saw, still one of my faves!
I have to thank Max B for his Zombie survival guide; my introduction to Zombie literature! John Mayburry's Patient Zero for getting me hooked and Z.A Recht for writing the zombie novel I always wished I could write!

I have a music taste way too varied for my own good. I can be charming my date with some Idlewild only for Annotations of an Autopsy to follow, or some De Bussy to follow Machine Head. I even like folk *bows head in shame*. Although, I will debate The Who's Baba O'Reilly/Teenage Wasteland being the single greatest song ever written. I think the greatest moment in my life was hearing Pearl Jam cover it in their encore!

Oo, a mention goes out to Bruno Mattei for directing Rats; The worst film I have ever seen. It's also my favourite. It is bad. I mean BAD.

Anyway, what was I saying?

Oh right, HI!!!

So...when's Survivors coming out?

(sorry for length, I have way too much time on my hands at work!)
