just contemplating

February 19, 2014 at 3:59 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

So I’ve  been  thinking  about  the  Zombie  apocalypse,  as  one  does.   What  would  I  need and  what  would  be  the winning item to  have  the corner on.   I  have a  cold  ,  so  my  first  thought  was guaifenesin.  But  then I  thought ,  the  person  that  corners  the market  on  steam is  the  winner.   It  is  good for  colds and asthma and  sore  muscles  and  cold  weather.   It  is  also  really good  for  cleaning,  especially  if  you  have a microfiber  cloth.   And  of  course  it  can  be  used  as a power  source.   I’m pretty  sure  with the current  tech in  plastics  and metals  we  could  do  stuff  that  was  more  useful  than  early  attempts  at  steam  power.

just  contemplating

( and no,  I’m  not  so  worried  about  vampires –  they  are  smart  enough to  know  they  need people – so  they  will do  what  they  can  to keep  the  cattle  happy )

Zombies

January 17, 2011 at 2:40 pm (books, Uncategorized) ()

Zombies  are  not  my  monsters .   They  are  boring.   They  just  run  around brainlessly   eating  people.  but  now  I’ve  read  three  good  zombie  books.

The  first  was World  War  Z  , by  Max  Brooks    which  an  episodic,  vegnet  style  book  using  reports,  news paper  accounts,  diaries  entries  to  tell  the  story  of  a  war  against  zombies.

The second  was  Feed by  Mira  Grant. which  was  more  of  a  political  thriller  after  we  created a  world  full of  zombies.

 

And I  just  finished Rot  and  Ruin by  Jonathan  Marberry.  it  is  a  YA  book  where  the  kids – just  remember  the  zombie  uprising.   and while  the  zombies are still,  zombies  – it adds  the  humanity  back to monsters.   A  really  good  compelling  story

This is not a horror novel. It is a novel of the near future ; a political thriller in a post-apocalyptic world.

In 2014, we cured the common cold and cancer. But in the process we created something terrible. Zombies.
Worse, it was ignored. Or under reported. It took the bloggers to bring the information to light.

Feed begins in 2039 , Zombies are a part of life. So is fear. But we still need news/information. and there is an upcoming election…

In Defense of Mrs. Bennett

Currently I am reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I am finding it really funny. But it also reminds me that I often find myself defending Mrs. Bennett. ( If you don’t know P&P, she is the mother of 5 daughters) She is loud, silly, and narrow-minded. And her only concern is to get her daughters well-married. Now add some zombies to the mix. Really, you begin to see that not only is marriage the only option for a well-bred woman of the time, but it might also be the only thing that stops her daughters for continuing their slaying/zombie hunting. Put your self back in time and in Mrs. Bennett’s shoes… Which life would you prefer for your daughter?
