AntonChigger: We are simply talking napalm, which sticks to everything and burns hot.


We shoot the dead, the young, the lame,
We do our best not to maim,
Because the kills don't count the same,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Flying low 'cross the cities,
Pilots doing what they please,
Dropping frags on refugees,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

See those walkers over there,
Watch me get them with a pair,
Blood and guts just everywhere,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

I've only seen it happen twice,
But both times it was mighty nice,
Shooting zeds stuck in the ice,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Napalm, son, is lots of fun,
Dropped in a bomb or shot from a gun,
It gets the walkers on the run,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Drop some napalm on a farm,
It won't do them any harm,
Just burn off their legs and arms,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

CIA with guns for hire,
Zombies running from a fire,
Napalm makes the fire go higher,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

I've been told it's not so neat,
To catch zeds burning in the street,
But burning flesh, it smells to sweet,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Children sucking on a mother's tit,
Wounded walkers in a pit,
Dow Chemical doesn't give a shiat,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Bombadiers don't care a bit,
Just as long as the pieces fit,
When you stuff the bodies in a pit,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Eighteen ghouls in a No Fire Zone,
"Lunch" under arms and going home,
Last in line goes home alone,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Zack in a sampan, sitting in the stern,
They don't know their boats will burn,
Those damn saifu will never learn,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Cobras flying in the sun,
Killing walkers is lots of fun,
Get one pregnant and it's two for one,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Shoot the walkers where they sit,
Take some pictures as you split,
All your life you'll remember it,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Ghouls are all hard core,
LOBOS never are a bore,
Throw those PSYOPS out the door,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

Gather zeds as you fly over town,
By throwing flesh on the ground,
Then grease 'em when they gather 'round,
Napalm sticks to zeds.

so they took the title of a successful book and slapped it onto a typical hollywood piece of shiat script without even remaining faithful to the genre?

sure, sounds like a must see

I do love the book, but it really takes a healthy dose of suspension of disbelief anytime military units are talked about. It would have been a great mini-series and the audiobook is amazing. An extended audiobook is planned (unabridged).

The zombie hoard in the book would have been toast by tanks running them over and C-130 gunships. Never mind the shooting gallery that would have happened in the plain states (15 fully armed rednecks in an F-250 pretty much end a large chunk of the hoard). Never mind the bridges and other stuff that could be blown.

fusillade762: I'd also like to recommend these books for zombie lovers:


Day by Day Armageddon? Really? The writing was awful -- the author's grasp of the English language is tenuous, at best. He doesn't even know the difference between "shuttered" (what he wrote) and "shuddered" (what he should have written).

It was written as a diary. Complaining about the use of language is like complaining about the cinematography of the Blair Witch Project.

But I agree it is a shiatty book. Not as bad as some of the others and I give him marks for accomplishing it but its kinda crappy.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: give me doughnuts: The "Starship Troopers" of zombie movies.

Except that "Starship Troopers" was an idiotic book and the movie did a great job of mocking the sh*t out of it.



Your derp to sentence ratio is pretty high. It's obvious you understood the book almost as well as Verhoeven did.
 
2012-11-07 01:41:45 PM
It's not a bad read. And it has a sincerity most zombie fiction lacks. It's just not particularly "good" as a novel.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: scottydoesntknow: egomann: give me doughnuts: The "Starship Troopers" of zombie movies.

You say that like it is a bad thing.

Starship Troopers had some of the cheesiest writing I've ever seen, like SyFy Original movie bad. If it didn't have copious amounts of gore and a lot of boobs it would've been absolutely terrible.

"Rico, how do you know she's still alive?"
"I don't know how I know, but I know."

Starship Troopers was a war propaganda movie. It was subversive. It was beautiful.



The movie was a steaming pile of vulture puke.

Oddly enough, I've read plenty of books written in the style of a diary. Not once have I ever read one that appeared to be written by a 5th grader (unless the diary was purported to belong to a 5th grader). But this is the kind of dreck you have to slog through when you're dealing with the explosion in publishing.

I just kind of noticed something watching that footage again.

The zombies are working together. And that wave of zombies knocking over the bus was acting like a pseudopod.

Not only are the zombies running, but do they have a hive mind too?

They probably have laser eyes and swords in their arms, too.

I listened to WWZ on tape as i drove from Northern Cal to Florida, alone. It was Interesting, but i'm not sure how it will do as a one shot movie. The story moved at a certain pace, that was part of the storyline.

I had set up a frame in the back of the pickup truck i was driving, with a canvas cover which rolled down and over the bed like a camper and a army cot to lay on when i wished to sleep.
I had a .45 long colt under my pillow, as i listened to WWZ and some golden age radio shows, it made for some strange dreams as a fell asleep in the new mexico desert...

oh come now. i went and got the book based on a recommendation in this thread. about 30 pages into it.... it isn't that poorly written. it is written in the style of a normal guy that obviously never spent alot of time trying to be writer, just a guy recording shiat that happened. it isn't the best thing I have ever read but it is short and so far is actually pretty decent, as far as pulp fiction goes.

Want to read some poorly written zombie fiction? Both novels produced by the Walking Dead phenomenon are poorly written. good stories, written by a guy that really needs to hone his craft.

LDM90: kroonermanblack: WTF Indeed: Book: A real science-based account of how the world would react to a plague.
Movie: ZOMG Zombies! Brad Pitt will save us! Thank Jesus Brad Pitt!

It's not science based. It's realistic bent of speculative fiction. It's no more factual than National Treasure is a historic accuracy.

So ready for the zombies everywhere thing to be done. It was fun and cool for a little while but it's just so insanely over saturating everything now.

I bet ghosts are next. Mummies can have their turn in a couple more years.


I'm sick to shiat of the ghosts already. They have taken over every channel on cable as it is. Even farking Animal Planet is half ghost programs now - WTF?

Now mummies? I'd be okay with that.

Dear god, so many tards assuming an infinite supply of gasoline and spare parts for tanks and ground attack aircraft. In a world where millions of people who used to make those things and operate them are now shuffling zombies.

I'm pissed that this became a movie before Y: The Last Man. I love both stories, but Y came first. Maybe this means Y still has a chance of becoming a proper mini-series as it deserves. And being cast with Chris Gorham as Yorick.

Saiga410: indarwinsshadow: born_yesterday: It's about time someone made a zombie movie!

OR a television series. You know. And it should have a really annoying kid. And a wife who screwed around and you'd wish she'd shut the hell up. Yeah and a redneck. That'd be cool. And maybe AMC should...what...oh never mind.

When are they going to start offering zombie based video games? I want to both a FPS where I have to survive a zombie apocolypse against other gamers and griefers, and I want a very dramtic narative adventure game.


Arma 2 DayZ would like to meet you... Oh wait that was the joke... I apolagize.

To those who don't understand why hardcore WW:Z fans are mad:

Imagine if Donald Trump bought the Mona Lisa, then had it painted over as the likeness of Pamela Andersen, with big fake tits and everything, then he hired Peter North to fark the painting live on Pay-Per-View, with gratuitous spooge shot and everything and then for the finale they burned the painting.
Then, for months afterward, Donald Trump bragged about how the whole thing made him $20 million and he'd never heard of this "Mocha Lisa" before he bought it.
