How to survive the impending zombie uprising

zombie walk 2009 dodsonHumorist Max Brooks will be at Sage this Wednesday night sharing tips on how to survive a zombie uprising. From the Sage blurb (links and emphasis added):

The Sage College of Albany welcomes Max Brooks, novelist, humorist, renowned Zombie preparedness expert and authority on the truth and myths surrounding the undead. The evening will include a reading from new materials, a chance for audience members to ask questions, followed by a book signing.
Brooks is the best-selling author of The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. His books outline ways to not only escape a Zombie attack, but shares techniques that allow the reader to defensively prepare for whats to come.

Brooks, who's the son of Mel Brooks, has a new book: The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks.

The talk starts at 9 pm in the Kahl Campus Center Gym at the Albany campus on New Scotland Ave. It's $5.

(Thanks, Jess!)

Victim or survivor. Your choice.

I'm convening a WPZDI* meeting at The Fountain at 7:00 for a pre-talk strategy planning session. From there, we'll move on to the Sage Campus. All active members are expected to attend and I'm opening the session to the general public.

As daleyplanit said: it's your choice.

*Washington Park Zombie Defense Initiative.

Who will emerge victorious when the zombie apocolypse clashes with the robot uprising? I'd give the edge to our new mechanical overlords.
