April 30 - Z



Game
You can tell from the cover that it's blissfully spoofy!

Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES 1993) - Exactly as it's titled.  A zombie take-over... And mummies, vampires, werewolves, martians, giant mutant toddlers, tentacles, and all other kinds of creepers!  Raid your neighbor's house for squirt guns full of holy water, silverware to throw at werewolves and weed wackers for that ivy that wants your blood!
Featuring a zany (and I don't use that word lightly) soundtrack and bright, colorful levels, this game is now available for download on several modern consoles.

Special Mentions: Zuma - You know you've played it!

Music

Rob Zombie - Also goes by Robert Cummings, Rob Straker and Robert Wolfgang Zombie.  For a guy with the most shallow ranging vocals ever, Rob Zombie (including White Zombie) is a surprisingly definitive rock icon... an even crazier fact considering he's only put out 5 full albums!
Rob isn't limited to music either.  He's written and directed and acted in feature films.
Also of note: His brother is the frontman for Powerman 5000.

Special Mentions: ZZ Top


I want to thank you all for reading this post and any other you may have read during the month!  As my blog kicks its shoes off to settle down for a well deserved hiatus - largely so that I may return to my work in progress - I'm collecting some stats and preparing them for a post-A to Z report, complete with my take on the whole experience.
See you soon!

Are you as excited as I am about returning to normal life??
