You know the old tagline from the movie Alien, “In space no one can hear you scream”? Personally, I think one of the best things about the internet is that: In cyberspace, everyone can hear you scream – especially if you use all caps!
Speaking of screams, I’ve been musing about zombies lately. Heck- who doesn’t this time of year? The folks who run Zombie Christmas have created a site that’s chock full of the undead, including zombie holiday music.
Another person with zombies on the brain this holiday season is Judie (who I found from the NaBloPoMo December blog roll) In her post, Zombies: Fast or slow? , Judie shares a delightful video called, BTN: Zombies, Fast or Slow, in which the differing creep factor between fast and slow zombies is given the thoughtful academic examination it deserves.
Turns out there are a lot of videos on the subject if you search for this on youtube. This video, for instance, sums up the zombie speed issue in a mere 35 seconds.
Surely, it is only a matter of time before someone produces a Zombie Rom Com musical, something along the lines of, “When Harry Met Zombie.” Anyone want to collaborate on this one?
Today’s photo was taken along the Coney Island boardwalk on a chilly winter day when no one was around. The empty rides and faded signs created a bleak-but-interesting vibe. This Shoot the Freak lot seemed especially creepy.
As for where I stand on the fast or slow zombie debate, I’m leaning towards slow. How about you?
