A Lazy Saturday

Hmmm, the family is off to the spring cleanup at Church Camp. It is April 16th and as I gaze out across the Salmon Estate big wet fluffy flakes are again covering the lawn. Just more signs of global warming. On lazy days like these the mind naturally turns to things like Zombies.

How long could you hold out. Take the quiz, and no cheating, the only one youll be fooling is yourself.

So how did you do? Take the poll and no lying.God is watching you.

Speaking of Zombies- We all know what it would be like hold up in the local mall, but what would a real zombie Apocalypse be like, I suggest World War Z: an oral history of the zombie war by Max Brooks.

The Crisis" nearly wiped out humanity. Brooks (son of Mel Brooks and author of The Zombie Survival Guide, 2003) has taken it upon himself to document the "first hand" experiences and testimonies of those lucky to survive 10 years after the fictitious zombie war. Like a horror fan's version of Studs Terkel's The Good War (1984), the "historical account" format gives Brooks room to explore the zombie plague from numerous different views and characters. In a deadpan voice, Brooks exhaustively details zombie incidents from isolated attacks to full-scale military combat: "what if the enemy can't be shocked and awed? Not just won't, but biologically can't!" With the exception of a weak BAT-21 story in the second act, the "interviews" and personal accounts capture the universal fear of the collapse of society--a living nightmare in which anyone can become a mindless, insatiable predator at a moment's notice. ...Regardless, horror fans won't be disappointed: like George Romero's Dead trilogy, World War Z is another milestone in the zombie mythos.
