“I am an unyielding apocalypse.”

Here’s your semi-regular update of scary and exciting things…

A little something from an awesome comic called East of West by Jonathan Hickman…


I thought this was pretty cool. Dallas TX is rolling out public access trauma kits, much like the AEDs you see everywhere in public places. It’ll be interesting to see them in use. HERE is the article. You should be carrying your own IFAK, but it helps to know where these are if you see them.

In case you forgot since the last ebola epidemic, we’re not really that safe in our nation of ‘modern’ hospitals.


The United States is covered in a map of landfills. Even though most people prefer not to know where their trash goes, knowing where these are could provide innumerable resources after an apocalypse. People are wasteful these days and throw away thing that will be treasures after a bad event. HERE is a neat graphic to provide you a little more in on what’s in landfills.

Here’s a potential post-apocalypse bicycle for you…


After my last post mentioning books by Shawn Clay (Twitter @georgiazombies), he told me that several great things are in the works. His books will be available in the gift shop in the Woodbury Shoppe in Senoia GA. If you’re not familiar, a big part of the Walking Dead is filmed in this area. Expect big things from this guy!

If You Only have Time for This Before the World Ends…

What would you do if you only had a certain amount of time left before the apocalypse? That’s the topic of a new book my publisher has asked me to write. It deals with the idea of what you could do to prepare for the end in only one year. Keep your eyes peeled for it. If you’d like to appear in the book as a case study anonymous or public, get in touch.

Here’s an image to display where you’ll be in life if you don’t prep in time…Uh Oh.

Until the book comes out, here’s some ideas and resources for you…

Amazon Prepper store– I started a custom Amazon store with lists of resources that I use or recommend for my preps. Be sure to check it out. If you think I’m missing anything, let me know.

Ever wonder about zombies and digestion? You’re not the only one.


Lems packable shoes– I saw these foldable shoes featured on the Huckberry site a while back. I haven’t tried these out, but if they’re durable and pack this easy, they might make a great back-up pair of shoes for a bug-out bag.

Hurt Feelings– Here’s an interesting article on the real reason we need to stop protecting everyone’s feelings.

If you ever wanted to get really nerdy about your preps and get a degree in it, the University of South Carolina has a Hazards and Vulnerability Institute. Could you imagine getting paid to do all that crazy prepper stuff you do now?

Baltimore and a Vampire Apocalypse– If you like reading not just realistic but also fanciful apocalyptic fiction, you might like the Baltimore stories by Mike Mignola, the creator of Hellboy. There are already quite a few graphic novels in this collection, so there’s plenty there to read for a while.

Someone sent me this the other day, and I’m not sure who to credit for its creation, but I the idea of a post-apocalypse Charlie Brown and Snoopy was too much to pass up.

The Division by Tom Clancy– Not sure if you guys play video games for fun or play them and call it tactical training, but this trailer for The Division presents a pretty cool apocalyptic event.

Men Will Be Pigs Even in the Apocalypse

A good friend sent me a link to a product that grossed me out a little, but I thought needed to be shown because I’m betting some of my faithful readers who are really hard up for companionship in the apocalypse are gonna want these.

Zombie Condoms




If you buy some, you may as well buy an industrial size bottle of THIS too.

Post-Apocalyptic Babes- Fact or Fiction?

I watch a lot of post-apocalyptic movies. I’d say it’s my favorite genre. One of the problems I have with them, though, is that the women are always so hot. Or, put it this way, there are always hot women around. It’s great to look at, but is it very realistic?

I mean, sure, in a group of any size there is sure to be a certain percentage of hot women. But will what we consider to be hot exist in any way once the Big Bad happens?

Make up?

Shaving legs, underarms, and other not so accessible places?

Nice clothes?


It’s all going to change. You guys prep everything you can, but have you prepared your psyche for the awful truth that those hot women in the post-apocalyptic movies, shows, and comic books simply will not be there?

Here are a few examples of what you can plan on NOT seeing…


Women- feel free to comment on this one. What will change for you in fashion, health, and beauty in the apocalypse?

Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse at X Con World

For the past few years I’ve been lecturing at X Con, a pop culture convention held in Myrtle Beach SC every year. One of my most popular lectures that I bring back every year is Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse. The crew from Nerd Bar caught some of it on tape and it’s on episode 8 of their show. You can check it out here…

Be sure to watch the whole thing, but especially stay tuned for the 16:45 minute mark for my lecture.

If you’d like to enjoy the entire lecture at your convention or conference, let me know. I’m sure we can work something out. Although concealed in terms of a zombie apocalypse, the lecture deals primarily with being prepared for man-made or natural disasters like terrorism, hurricanes, and winter storms.

Check out the Zombie Shooter’s Association

A friend of mine just recommended I check out the folks over at the Zombie Shooter’s Association of America. Although I’ve never been to any of their events, I have to say that I’m intrigued. I’m a big fan of anything zombie and also an aficionado of the shooting arts, so this seems right up my alley.


Turns out these guys and most of their events and matches are within a half days drive of my compound in eastern South Carolina, so I may be visiting them soon to send off a few rounds downrange. Their 3 gun matches sounds especially fun. From all appearances and what I’ve heard about them, the ZSA isn’t just a bunch of redneck gun yahoos. These guys are professionals who enjoy  a fun, safe time with guns and zombies as the medium for that.

Check out their site. Look at the event schedule. Watch a few videos. And make yourself better prepared for zombies or any other bogies that try to get between you and the rest of your life.

Tell them that Dr. Dave at CAPOCS sent you. Maybe I’ll see you there one weekend on the range.
