Not everybody’s ready for some football.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
I don’t like football. I don’t care who won last year’s Heisman Trophy. I don’t care what hilariously named bowl game your team is attending. (Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, really?) And I feel really alone in that sentiment.

My name is ____

We asked a bunch of local bands to tell us the origins of their names. Babies, zombies and Bible passages ensued.


Music

Matt Carney
Zombie vs. Shark
“Our name refers to the underwater fight scene in the 1979 Italian zombie flick Zombi 2. . It was [singer] Jeremy [Gragg]’s idea, but we all thought it was funny and appropriate for reasons we’ve nev ertheless found hard to articulate. But I’ll try. I imagine ‘Zombie vs. Shark’ as some-thing a preadolescent boy play ing with action figures would dream up as the ultimate fight scenario. A zombie fighting a shark is willful in its arbitrariness and, as such, it expresses a kind of enthusiastically staged conflict you can also hear in our music.” —Robert Scafe, guitarist
