Raising Zombies - Family Life in the Modern Age

Raising Zombies - Family Life in the Modern Age

Not for the faint of heart or easily offended, Raising Zombies - Family Life in the Modern Age is J. Thorn’s humorous rant about being a teenager in the 1980s and life as a parent today. Using his experience as an educator and consultant for almost two decades, he exposes the erosion of independent thought in our schools at the hands of political correctness, organized religion, the self-esteem movement, and blind patriotism. Thorn peppers his short essays with a healthy dose of rock history while thumbing his nose at the establishment he desperately tries to escape.

From Raising Zombies  - Family Life in the Modern Age:

“We sat next to each other at lunch and threw rocks at all of the popular kids during recess.”

“People resent it when others reach the same goal without struggle or effort. We want kids today to suffer through the same crap we did because otherwise we feel cheated.”

“Drew was the kid who liked to kick you in the balls in the bathroom for no reason and then leave and tell the teacher you were picking on him.”

If you’re a fan of Adam Carolla, Justin Halpern, or Chuck Klosterman, you are going to love Raising Zombies  - Family Life in the Modern Age.

***If you can’t laugh at yourself, your government, your religion, or me, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. Sense of humor required.***

"Raising Zombies" up from the ashes of "Educating Zombies"!

Dear faithful readers,
The wait is almost over! In September, "Raising Zombies" will be available as an ebook through It is the second edition of the original, "Educating Zombies". "Raising Zombies" comes packed with all of your favorite nasty sarcasm in addition to an appendix full of MORE neat stuff.

You can find out more about it at and sign up to get a FREE advanced review copy of the book. Yep, FREE. No joke, FREE. Did I mention its FREE? Get yours before it hits the virtual shelves on Amazon.

This blog will eventually crumble to dust so when you get to the new blog, add that feed to your RSS reader.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing you on the other side.

Rock on!

J. Thorn

Stay tuned...

If you're still coming around these parts, I've decided to revise and republish Educating Zombies and fold it into my other platform.  Should be ready sometime this summer.  Thanks and stay tuned...

A possible hiatus?

It really bugs me to join the ranks of bloggers that abandon their blog.  But I’m considering it.  You see, I have another blog/creative outlet that is becoming much more demanding on my time and I have to make a choice.  That blog is getting 40-50 times more traffic than this one and last month the books I sold on it earned me over a thousand dollars.  I didn’t start this for the money, but I got to admit, it sure is nice getting royalty checks.

Decomposition has sold a few copies here and I’m grateful for those that purchased (and maybe even enjoyed) it.  I don’t have plans to yank it from the virtual shelves, but again, it’s hard to market a book without a name, and hence, a platform.

So I’m not shutting down Drill and Kill.  And if I reveal my identity in the near future, I would roll this venture into it.  But for now, I need to walk away for a bit and put my energies in a different place.
