Stop Being a Conformist Zombie

 

Richard Buzzell’s ZombieStop Parade is a not a novel about zombies. Set up by two young boys at the age of twelve, ZombieStop is a website that enables the youth of today to voice their concerns, cynicism and hope for the future. Set up by Corky, who is now college-age, the website encourages the disaffected youth of Generation Whatever to pay attention to what is happening around them. Corky initiates the anti-conformist approach to viewing the corporatist economy. ZombieStopperUno is Corky’s friend and the narrator. He relates the events of the past months in an attempt to record the rapid pace with which ZombieStop has grown and attracted viewership and notoriety on the Web.
 
The corporatist elite and mainstream media ho’s view ZombieStop as a threat to their marketist ideology. As with any regime that demands complete and total devotion, they are alarmed by ZombieStop’s free thinking policy on the Web. The fact that ZombieStop is purely non-profit, without even the Internet advertising that populates the pages of most websites, makes it seem even more suspicious. As ZombieStopperUno records the increasing interest in ZombieStop, conspiracy theories abound about the hidden motive behind the website and the criticism comes pouring in. What do they hope to achieve? Are they linked to the fire-bombing attacks that have been occurring lately? Does their site foster future terrorists?
 
Narrated by the fresh voice of ZombieStopperUno, the unnamed friend and the unwitting media-relations person for ZombieStop, this novel starkly and humorously depicts what happens when economic spin-doctors, corporatists and media elites are faced with intelligent cross-examination of their policies and values. The novel is a stimulating statement about how clued-in the youth of America really are. Scorning the condescension of elder (and therefore supposedly wiser) academics, CEOs and politicians, ZombieStop challenges the many structures that enable the free market ideology to stay put in the face of overwhelming evidence that it doesn’t work.  
 
You can have this book delivered to you wirelessly via Amazon Kindle for $5.99. It is a good read which the young crowd can relate to. The book is in the form of journal entries and Richard’s wry sense of humour as he remarks on the cyber business tactics of today make this an eminently good read.

The Movies that Make You Scream! by R David Fulcher

This book looks at a number of adaptations of the written works of Stephen King brought to the big screen and the pressure points in the human psyche that in my opinion makes these..
