ZOMBIES: Permuted Press Author Jessica Meigs - First Responder for your Z-Poc Fix

“We live, we die. Somewhere along the way, if we’re lucky, we may find someone to help lighten the load.”

From The Passage by Justin Cronin

Full Name: Jessica Meigs
Nickname: Jess (Never “Jessie”)
Primary Specialty: Horror writer, with a focus on zombie apocalypse literature (for the moment)
Secondary Specialty: EMT - It’s great to have you here on the blog, Jessica.
Jessica Meigs - And it’s great to be here!
ZBF - I want to ask your opinion, first of all, about this whole zombie thing. What in the world is the big deal about zombies and the upcoming zombie apocalypse?
JM - I think people have an inherent fascination in stories and settings that are far removed from their normal, everyday lives. When it comes to virtually any scenario, people like to ask themselves, “What would I do?” And the zombie apocalypse is no different.
As with any fight-for-survival scenario, people like to imagine what they would do or wouldn’t do if they faced that type of situation. And the concept of a zombie apocalypse not only does this, but I think it also gives readers of zombie lit and viewers of zombie movies an additional feeling of horror in that it puts such a real-life face to the potential apocalypse: the faces of everyone you know.
Can you even imagine having to face the possibility of killing someone close to you when they get zombified? A lot of people are like, “Oh, yeah, no problem, I’d bust a cap in ‘em.” But in a real scenario like that, if it was really happening, could you really, honestly say you could do it? I think that the whole survival question like that is a large part of why people are so fascinated with zombies and the zombie apocalypse.
ZBF - What got you started on horror and zombies?
JM - Well, I’ve always enjoyed zombie films. I hadn’t read much in the way of zombie books. But then I got my hands on the infamous World War Z by Max Brooks and my entire perspective changed. I started absolutely devouring zombie books. Most of them aren’t exactly memorable; but there was one, which shall remain nameless, that I read that was awful. The premise was fantastic, but the story itself was handled so horribly that I said to myself, “I can do better than this!” So I started to write.
My book The Becoming and its sequels are what resulted. Ever since, I’ve discovered there’s an entire culture devoted to these types of books and films, and it’s been fascinating and intriguing and just plain fun ever since.

ZBF - You work as an EMT, which I imagine is not the easiest of jobs. Have you found that experience helping lives has provided great storytelling material for your books?
JM - Oh, most definitely. One of the characters in my main group of survivors is Theo Carter, and he’s a paramedic. I couldn’t resist giving a character at least a variant of the knowledge I myself possess. He gets to utilize his skills in The Becoming, but it’s more evident in The Becoming: Ground Zero, which will be out this summer from Permuted Press. And, of course, a large portion of my new novella, The Becoming: Brothers in Arms, which is about Theo and his younger brother Gray, takes place from Theo’s perspective, including some rather bloody events in the back of an ambulance. That was very fun to write and was inspired by a time when I was out on a transfer and as we transported, I was sitting in the back of the ambulance thinking to myself, “If there was a zombie apocalypse, and I was trapped in the back of this ambulance, what could I conceivably use as a weapon that’s already back here?” Want the answer? Well, you’ll just have to read Brothers in Arms!
ZBF - You spent time writing your book, The Becoming, on BlackBerry devices. Why did you choose to do that?
JM - It wasn’t exactly a choice, at least not to begin with. When I started writing my novels, I did not own a computer, just a BlackBerry smartphone (the Curve 8310, if I remember correctly). I got access to a desktop computer maybe once a week when I was lucky. So I just used the tools that were in front of me and did what I had to do to get my novel written. After I actually got a laptop, though, I continued writing and drafting on my BlackBerrys as more of a challenge to myself than anything else. Also, it tends to come in handy when I’m away from my computer and at work.
ZBF - Tell us a little bit about The Becoming.
JM - The Becoming is a book that, while it takes place in the zombie apocalypse, isn’t about the zombies at all. It’s more a book about the survivors and how they try to, well, survive. It’s about their interactions, the events that take place around them, how they react to them. There’s bickering, bitching, arguing, moaning and groaning, but there’s also the pluses: friendship and support and helping each other, and even the seeds of a growing romance. I think in this effect, the series can actually appeal to those outside of the zombie fandom.
ZBF - This book is part one of a trilogy. Tell us a little about the subsequent novels that will follow.
JM - I don’t want to divulge too much, because it will absolutely ruin the great fun to be had for readers in them. I will say this, though:
The second book is titled The Becoming: Ground Zero. In it, a woman shows up to the safe house and completely turns the group upside down. Some serious conflicts arise, and the bloodshed really begins. And a conspiracy is unveiled that will totally shake the foundations of everything every character has come to know about the zombies and the apocalypse they’re living in. The book will be out in July from Permuted Press.
The third book is called The Becoming: Revelations. And things are, well, revealed in it. Lots of things. Earth-shaking things. New characters crop up, old characters are lost, and there’s even more bloodshed (because we can’t have a zombie novel without at least a little bloodshed). Also, someone goes missing. I can’t say who or what happens there. But it should prove interesting! I’m not sure when this book will be released, but I’m sure it’s obvious that it will be out sometime after Ground Zero.

ZBF - You mentioned your love of music and how it inspires you to put together playlists for things that you write. If we were to see the playlist for The Becoming, what are some of the songs we would find?
JM - Where to start, where to start? The playlist for The Becoming, which encompasses the entire series, is twelve hours long. There are 163 songs on that playlist, because I tend to add songs that inspire me as I come across them. Picking some at random, you’d find songs like “Save Yourself, I’ll Hold Them Back” by My Chemical Romance, “Four Rusted Horses” by Marilyn Manson, “We’re In This Together” by Nine Inch Nails, “All the World is Mad” by Thrice, “We Are the Living Dead” by Atreyu and, obviously, dozens of others. 99.9% of the playlist is rock and metal music because, imo, that’s the only music worth listening to!

ZBF - When you have time to read, who are some of your favorite authors, and some of your favorite books?
JM - I read so much that I almost can’t decide, so I tend to fall back on old favorites: Feed and Deadline by Mira Grant (and I’ll likely love the upcoming Blackout too); nearly everything Jonathan Maberry’s ever written, especially Rot & Ruin and Dust & Decay and, of course, Dead of Night; G.R. Yeates is one I’ve found especially fantastic, if only from a horror writer (as opposed to zombie writer) perspective: Eyes of the Dead and Shapes in the Mist gave me chills, and I’m about to start on his new one, Hell’s Teeth, with very high expectations. World War Z is a given, I believe. And everything in Cherie Priest’s Clockwork Century series, including Boneshaker, Clementine, Dreadnought, and Ganymede. It’s zombie fic with a steampunk and historical twist, and it is amazing. And then Peter Clines’ Ex-Heroes and Ex-Patriots
As you can see, I could conceivably go on all day with this, so I better force myself to stop now!

ZBF - What are some zombie movies you enjoy?
JM - Absolutely, bar none, my favorite zombie films are 28 Days Later and Dawn of the Dead (2004). These two films were incredibly influential on me and my writing, and I never get tired of watching them. Close behind them are the Resident Evil films, especially the first and second ones.

ZBF - As an EMT, what is some advice you would give for the people preparing for the zpoc?
JM - Collect your first aid supplies now. Don’t wait until the last minute. Medications, bandages, splints, all of it, will be incredibly hard to come by during a zombie apocalypse, especially medications that fall under the category of controlled substances (such as narcotics—which covers prescription painkillers in most cases) and antibiotics. I personally cannot stress antibiotics enough. Antibiotics are must-haves, so do what you can to collect what you can when it comes to those. As I show at some point in my trilogy (I won’t say when or what), antibiotics are incredibly necessary, and it’s something a lot of people don’t think about until it’s too late. Also? Health and beauty aids. Shampoo, razors, unscented soaps, deodorants. You can’t stay healthy if you can’t stay clean. Cleanliness is very important.

ZBF - Any other projects we can look forward to?
JM - At the moment, the aforementioned The Becoming: Ground Zero and The Becoming: Revelations. I’m also tinkering with a fourth and fifth book in the series, which are tentatively titled The Becoming: Awakening and The Becoming: Evolve. I’ve also started plotting for a paranormal/horror series involving a very awesome character and a lot of great ideas. I don’t want to reveal too much with that until I have a more solid plan for it, though!

ZBF - Where can readers find out more about you?
JM - Well, of course, readers can always visit my website at I’m also really active on Twitter; my username there is @JessicaMeigs. And I can be found on Facebook at, and on Goodreads at I always welcome new friends to chat with at any of those sites!

ZBF - Thanks, Jessica.
JM - Thank you for having me!

FIGHTS: The Infamous Kimbo Slice hits 4-0 with KO win over Green

by Bowie Ibarra

Springfield, MO was the location of Kimbo Slice's latest victory over MMA fighter Brian Greene in a boxing rules match.  It was clearly an exhibition bout, considering Green was fighting his first ever boxing rules match and took the fight on three days notice.  But he put up a fight in the scheduled four round fight.

People are making the claim that the fight was fixed.  It's boxing.  Money is involved.  I could see how people might think that.

However, I don't think so.  Here's what I saw.
That's shot number three.  It was not a one-punch knockout.

Round one found both guys starting fast, swinging punches wild.  Both guys were connecting, with Kimbo landing lots of power shots to the body early.  Let me tell you, shots to the body suck, sometimes even worse than the head.  Green's mouth was wide open, and he was consistently keeping his hands down.  He was also clowning around during the match, showboating with open arms.

Round two found both guys significantly slower with their punches.  Kimbo has been known to have a low gas tank capacity, and it was on display here.  Kimbo was once again working the body while Green was headhunting.  There was even a moment in this round when Green had Kimbo on the ropes after a good hit.  But he couldn't bring Kimbo down.  Both guys were breathing hard, chins up, with Green finishing hard.

The third round found both guys slowed down even more, with Green being more aggressive.  Green was still headhunting, while Kimbo was still chopping down the tree with body shots over head strikes.  Then, Kimbo started moving some punches to the head, knocking out Green's mouthpiece, one of tell-tale signs of exhaustion.  After putting the mouthpiece in, Green slipped striking Kimbo, stumbling to the mat.  Another sign of exhaustion.  Without much left in the tank, Green let it all hang out with wild punches, including a (goddamn you, Green) 'Superman' punch.  Kimbo knocked Green's mouthpiece out again.

The fourth and final round found both dudes slowed down even more, with the punch numbers much lower.  Kimbo, however, seemed to have more spark in spite of being completely gassed as well.  So the KO came in the last seconds of the fight.  And though people think it was some kind of miracle one-punch knockout, it was actually three shots:  a left uppercut, a right cross, and a left uppercut.  Lights out.  It was not just a single glancing blow.

Here's the thing.  In a fight, when you're completely exhausted, this is the kind of knockouts that happen.  They're even more likely when the dude keeps his hands down and mouth wide open.  And considering his body was getting worked over by Kimbo from the opening bell, he was done.  His body cashed him out on the three punch combo.  And that's the key to winning boxing matches: stringing combos together.

The dude Green is a warrior through and through, but he's not a boxer.  Considering Kimbo has had more time training as a boxer, that small advantage pushed him through to the end, IMO.  Let's face it, the dude had three days to prepare.  That's only three days of shifting your mindset, training, and fighting style from one with lots of offensive options to a specific offense with various combinations to become proficient in.  Boxing and the use of hands in MMA is distinctly different than the use of hands in boxing.

Was it a great fight?  It was alright.  There was action and it was fun.  I would have paid $15-$25 bucks to show up to it.  But it's not going down in the annals of Boxing history as one of the greatest ever.

But it was a good example of how the better boxer with just a little more skill and knowledge of the sport will take the victory when both competitor's gas tanks are on empty.

FIGHTS: RETROSPECTIVE: 'War Games-The Match Beyond' and the Four Horsemen, WWE HoF '12

by Bowie Ibarra

As Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, and manager James J. Dillon walk to their induction into the WWE Hall of Fame 2012 on April 1, 2012, I think it's very important to take a look back at one of the biggest matches in pro-wrestling history that defined the cruelty of the Four Horsemen and the kind of fight that their rivals had to face.  Especially if they faced them in this signature match, created to destroy The Horsemen:  War Games-The Match Beyond.

Though the Horsemen are known for many things and accomplished many great feats during the first incarnation of the stable, it is this match that stands out to me as one of their best, and a legacy to the team.  I think its important for the current WWE Universe to watch and understand how true rivalries were settled back in the classic 80s era of wrestling.

The match was held in a steel cage that was placed over two adjacent wrestling rings.  The cages were lined up right against the rings, with no outside area like in a 'Hell in a Cell', so there was nowhere to run.  There was also no referee in the ring, so anything could happen on the inside.  Very dangerous.

The match consisted of 8 periods.  The first period was five minutes, with one guy from each team starting the fight.  Then a ref conducted a coin toss to determine who would go in next, giving that team an advantage throughout the periods until 'The Match Beyond'.  During the periods where competitors entered, there were no pinfalls or submissions, 'it was just a fight'.  It was until the final competitor entered the ring that 'The Match Beyond' began, in which the winner was determined by one of the competitors quitting, submitting, or getting knocked out.

The first match set the bar for every other War Games match, and was the progenitor of such matches as 'Hell in a Cell' and especially 'Elimination Chamber'.

This particular team of the Four Horsemen, composed of Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Lex Luger, and J.J. Dillon.

The team lead by Dusty Rhodes was Dusty, Hawk and Animal of the Road Warriors, Nikita Koloff, and Paul Ellering, who was the manager of the Road Warriors and former wrestler.

The first competitors ever in a War Games match were legends Dusty Rhodes and Arn Anderson, who mixed it up for five minutes.  They threw rounds at each other, with Rhodes even popping Anderson in the nuts with a punch.  Dream took control, planting Arn with a DDT and aggravating a head laceration by raking Arn's injured head against the cage.

It was also here we got the traditional 'throw the man face first into the cage' bit, which is mandatory for cage matches.  Dusty did it here before slapping on his vaunted Figure Four.  Since there was no submission yet, Rhodes broke the hold to see who would win the coin toss.  It turned out to be the Horsemen winning the coin toss, bringing Anderson's Texan tag partner, Tully Blanchard, into the ring to double team Dusty.  And boy did they go at it.  Blanchard slapped on a Figure Four on Rhodes before having to break the hold getting ready for the odds to be even by the next member of Dusty's team.

And boy did the odds get even.  Animal of the 'Road Warriors was brought into the ring, who proceeded to pendulum swing Blanchard into the fence and give Dusty a chance to attack Arn.  Animal gave Blanchard the fence treatment before Dusty came in to add more abuse to Blanchard.

Before long, however, the next Horseman made his way into the ring, and Dillon sent in Ric Flair, who went after Animal with Arn.  Animal got the fence face toss as the Horsement took control and did it again.

It was back and forth before the teams were even again when Nikita Koloff jumped in to wreck shop.  Flair tried to gouge his eyes to stop his progress, only to make the big Ruskie mad.  And there were Russian sickles to go around.  Animal even press slammed Flair.  With the odds even, Rhodes team was tearing it up.

But the Horsemen regained the advantage with Lex Luger entering the cage, going after Koloff and Animal.  After being punched in the nads by Flair, Koloff was hit with two spiked pile drivers from Flair and Blanchard.

It's important to understand that the pile driver was not your average move.  It was considered very devastating back in the day.  A spiked pile driver was enough to end your career.

Koloff took two.

Then Hawk came in to even the odds and went right to work against all of the Horsemen, giving his friends a chance to regroup and counterattack.

But after attacking the genitals of two Rhodes teammates, Flair slapped on the figure four on Rhodes before the Horsemen were to take the advantage.

Next in was J.J. Dillon.  Like an idiot, Dillon went right on the attack against Hawk, the freshest dude in the fight.  That didn't sit well with Hawk, who returned fire on Dillon.  With Dillon a liability, the Horsemen still had to fight to keep the advantage.

Finally, Paul Ellering entered the ring, thus initiating 'The Match Beyond', submission or surrender.  It was now at this point that the match could be won by one of the teams.

Ellering was wise and went right to work against Dillon.  At this point, with the Horsemen occupied, Paul Ellering was using a spiked wristband against Dillon, splitting him open.  It was then that the Road Warriors double teamed Dillon.

You had to know Dillon and Ellering were the weakest links on each of the teams.  Why the Horsemen didn't go on the offensive against Ellering like the Road Warriors did against Dillon is beyond me.  The Road Warriors set up Dillon with a variation of their 'Doomsday Device' and planted him into the mat.  Hurt, they forced him against the cage and stomped him until cageside ref Teddy Long (yes, that Teddy Long), heard Dillon surrender, ending the match.

There was another match in this same wrestling year with a similar result.  And though the match seemed to run the same way, it is this match that will be remembered as the first and the best ever.

More 'War Games' matches were to follow.  Many matched the brutality of this one.  But like Shawn Micheals/Undertaker in 'Hell in a Cell', this one set the standard for the ones to come. would like to say congratulations to the members of The Four Horsemen who will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame 2012.

FIGHTS/BLOOD - REVIEW: "Casa de mi Padre" more Grindhouse-style comedy than disrespectful to Mexicans

by Bowie Ibarra

Will Ferrel and the fun bunch that brought us 'Anchorman' bring us a pretty funny parody of Mexican cinema called 'Casa de mi Padre'.  If you like Will Ferrel's brand of humor, than this is the movie for you.

The movie plays out like a Spanish 'novela' that can be seen most every weeknight on any Spanish TV station. describes the plot of the film this way:

"Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) is a simple rancher who takes pride in his heritage, his country, and his rolled cigarettes. His father (Pedro Armendariz Jr.) isn't proud of his son, never fully forgiving Armando for accidentally killing his mother. Raul (Diego Luna), the financially successful, charming, well-dressed sibling has arrived back in town with his new girlfriend Sonia Lopez (Genesis Rodriguez), giving rise to both celebration and jealousy. But Raul is butting into the territory of opprobrious drug dealer Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal), in league with corrupt officials and conniving DEA agent Greg Parker (Nick Offerman), who is keen on offing his competition with guns with conspicuously unlimited ammo."

For a Hispanic who grew up in south Texas and can appreciate the jokes, the movie was good for some laughs.  Admittedly, the gimmick of a 'gringo' being the lead in a Spanish-style movie might get a little old pretty quick for some, but the fact that it was a comedy took the edge off that fact.  And its all a funny story with the same kind of humor found in 'Anchorman' or many Will Ferrel movies and SNL sketches, including a 60s vision quest, a talking white jaguar run by Jim Hensen studios, ridiculous musical numbers, a cliche and Pekinpah-esque final gunfight, and an ass-grabbing love scene that will have you laughing and squirming at the same time.  

Will Ferrel did a fantastic job with the Spanish, and the supporting cast was excellent.  And they even picked up on the subtlety of Mexican culture (or at least the culture I've grown to know and love in south Texas), including the hot female housekeeping staff making 'jealous' faces at Sonia, and one of the leads finishing his alcoholic beverage after being fatally shot.

The movie was clearly a parody of '60s Mexican cinema and telenovelas, with modern themes of 'carteles' and 'narcos'.  Its the same style of movies you can find in any DVD bargain bin in south Texas.    But they used the same conventions the grindhouse features like "Death Proof" and "Planet Terror" used to parody the conventions of those low-budget cinema movies.  Exterior filming combined with interior sets, bad editing both of sound and picture, and mannequins (?) as extras.

Some people might think the movie is disrespectful to the Mexican community, but I didn't see that.  For me, it was just a parody of Mexican cinema and low production values rampant in some of the films.  It reminded me of 'Black Dynomite', a parody of the classic 70s Blaxploitation films. This film did the same thing.  Like 'Machete' was a 'Mexploitation' action film, this movie is truly a 'Mexploitation' comedy.

In short, if you want a good laugh, check out this film in theatres.  It will provide easy laughs for the unititiated, but will also be filled with plenty of inside jokes and giggles for the Hispanic community as well.

FIGHTS: ACW's An Absence of Law '12 arrives in SATX

by Bowie Ibarra

Anarchy Championship Wrestling brought its wild brand of pro-wrestling to Hooligan's Bar in San Antonio, Texas once again for ACW's An Absence of Law.  And it was a wild time.  I attended late, but can tell you the fans were still abuzz about the great Hardcore match Matt Palmer had against Greg James. Not only that, but the fans also were talking about how I missed the Barbie Hayden/Rachel Summerlynn match.

But there was still plenty of action.  Here's some images from my arrival.

Gary Jay took on Shawn Vexxx in a brawl.  Gary's father was at ringside with his son.  It's great to see such support from his dad, especially considering his son is a homeless junkie.

Vexxx pulled out the win with Sky Delacrimosa at his side.

Lillie Mae came out with some bad news.  She is joining the ranks of the ACW injured as she confessed that she had a series back injury that was going to require surgery.

That's when ACW Joshi Champ Angel Blue came to the ring and attacked her.

But Rachel Summerlynn came to the ring to stick up for Lillie, and the match began.  Here are some snaps from the match.

But then something strange happened....

Rachel somehow became very sick, and some kind of curse put on her by Lady Poison took effect.  It gave Blue the advantage, and the naughty angel took the win.

Englishman Pierre Abernathy showed up with new gear, featuring what looked like King Ghidora.  But he says its a martial arts clan he trained with for over six years.  Abernathy backed up Davey Vega, who showed up wearing a Street Fighter Vega-style outfit.

And holy guacamole, Californian Jordan Jenson tagged up with JoJo Bravo.

The scoundrel Robert Evans made an appearance, taking on Evan Gelistico.  Here are some snaps from that matchup.

Then the madman professed his love for Portia Perez and planned on taking her to prom.

Just Willie made an appearance, and delivered a moonsault to Chingo and Steele.

Chingo drops his buddy, JC Bravo, claiming its all business.

Steele works over Willie.

Matt Fitchett shows up like a rockstar with his new friend, Murphy!

He took on ACH in an exciting match.

Then the Takeover arrived, arrogance and all.

Biohazard and Claxton took on Big Ricky and Bolt Brady and Jason Silver and Sky Delacrimosa for the tag titles.

Silver and Sky let The Takeover do all the heavy lifting as they wait in their corner.

In the end, Masada took on Jerry Lynn for the CZW Hardcore Title.

It was a great technical bout, with Masada putting his scientific skills to the test against Lynn.  

In the end, Masada slapped on a Texas Cloverleaf on Lynn, who quickly tapped out.  Having had back surgery just months before, he couldn't take it.  And to be honest, tapping out quick was the best move.  He doesn't have any more to prove.

But that's when the Submission Squad and Gary's Dad jumped in, but were quickly run off when the numbers became even with a save from the injured Scot Summers.

It was a great night of action yet again for a city that's very lucky to have so much great pro-wrestling to go and see.  It was also cool to see fans of Branded Outlaw Wrestling there as well, proudly wearing their shirts and enjoying the Anarchy.  Wrestling fans in San Antonio know where to see the good stuff, and ACW certainly delivered.

Do the legacy of pro-wrestling a favor and seek out good independent pro-wrestling in your area and support it.
