Zombie Related Things

I'm tired of zombies.  There.  I said it.  Everywhere you look someone's doing some uninspired bit about the zombie apocalypse and it's boring.  I've reached the point where I look at zombie things the way anyone under 50 looks at news stories about popular You Tube videos, which is something like the way an adult looks at a small child they've allowed to beat them at game when that child is gleefully crowing their victory.

That said, when someone does something different or even kind of different they've earned some credit.  To that end, I bring you Exit Humanity:

This is by no means a flawless film.  (It is, in fact, deeply flawed.)  However, it tries to do something different and for that it is to be commended.  The makeup effects are delightful.  The story starts off interestingly (it gets really lost along the way, but it starts well enough).  There are also some really well executed animated bits.  If you have time to kill it's worth checking out, but have a friend on hand because Exit Humanity's redeeming features aren't enough to save it.

Just So We're Clear

Ahahahah.  So, remember this post?  Welp, chances are that if you stopped by enough to get where that was coming from and at least be sympathetic to it, this is probably the last post you're going to read here (provided that you're even actually reading this post because I've been gone for just under a year- though not for the first time).

Here's the rub, my former fellow right wingers, (yeah, former) I've left the fold.  I am and have been for some time now, a hard line leftist.  A liberal socialist to be exact.  I thought any old readers stopping by deserve to know.

This can be considered an official declaration that I Was Wrong and that I'm Sorry I Was An Insufferable Asshole About A Lot Of Things.

I'm still not planning on doing a lot of talking about politics because that shit is still depressing- just for a bevy of other reasons.  

The next post will be a video of some sort.  Also, I started a Tumblr. It's a work in progress.  I've stopped reading monthly comics in favor of a strict TPB regiment.  Still playing Skyrim and my frothing rage over the Mass Effect 3 ending has settled into a simmering ever present disappointment, which manifests as a general apprehension when it comes to buying new games.

Only in America could a center right corporate apologist war-mongering imperialist be considered "center left", but hey- at least we didn't elect the fucking sociopath.

Props to Washington and Colorado on legalizing weed and demonstrating a modicum of sense on drug policy.

Props to Maryland on voting against bigotry twice over by providing in-state tuition to children of undocumented immigrants and furthering the goal equality for gay people.

Every time I see a map breaking down election results by district all I can think is "Fuck, am I thankful for fucking cities".


November 6th

Happy fucking election day.
