My First Post on Fantasy Rantz

The “sexy” zombie in a not-so-sexy moment

My first post to the blog Fantasy Rantz appeared today under the pen name Phoenix Phyre. It was inspired by a conversation referenced in one of WaterRaven’s posts regarding why vampires have gotten sexy and zombies haven’t. Recently, there was an example of what one might deem to be a “sexy zombie” in the movie Warm Bodies, but I don’t think this is going to become a trend (or at least I hope it won’t). In this post I talk about some of the reasons I think it’s okay (and even kind of makes sense) that vampires have gotten sexier over time, while zombies generally have been portrayed as disgusting and should continue to be. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, you can check that out here.

I was asked to be a regular contributor to Fantasy Rantz going forward, so rather than make a new post here each time I post there, I’ll do what I’ve done with my contributions to Germany Ja and write a post every so often with what I’ve contributed lately. If you’re interested in fantasy and/or sci-fi, you may want to consider following Fantasy Rantz for coverage of books, movies, comics, anime, and other forms of geekdom. If you want to see more about what the blog covers and/or perhaps to contribute a post yourself, check out this post on guest writers. I have some papers due over the next few days, but when I return I’ll tell you about my trip to Strasbourg, France (which was my first time traveling outside of Germany).

  1. Nice post! I’m cool with sexy vampires I guess, but zombies–no. Just no. 😛
