Zombies, Ukulele = Zombie Boogie

Zombies:  I am NOT an expert.  But there’s been a lot of discussion about Zombie preparedness this past week at my alma mater.swampzombie2

After I’d hoped not to read another story about Zombie epidemic preparation plans, “Mad Tea Party” released their “Zombie Boogie” album.   You can listen to Zombie Boogie — complete with Ami Worthen aka Ukulele Rockstar on ukulele.  What’s interesting also is that you can buy it as ” … a collectible 33 rpm 7” vinyl EP with an artistic, disturbing letterpress cover.”

It brings to mind Jonathan Coulton’s 2006  Zombie song which  John Rockwell shared via ukulele.

One of the things I like about Coulton is that he quit his programming job to try making a living at doing something he loves — and he made it work.  I really like the version of Code Monkey with the ukulele which Kristen (the Doifter) contributed to the ukulele world of music back in 2006.

Let me repeat, I know little of zombies (except for a few songs about them) and hope to keep it that way.  It has to do with keeping a sense of perspective.
