Have you been super duper stressed about the possibility of a zombie apocalypse? Or maybe you don’t really believe but you watched one too many episodes of The Walking Dead and now you can’t sleep until you can shoot a squirrel off the shoulder of an undead pizza delivery guy. Well, rest assured that a zombie apocalypse is totally nothing to worry about. Cracked.com offers 7 Scientific Reasons a Zombie Outbreak Would Fail (Quickly).
Around here, it felt like fall would never get here. In fact, it’s still in the low 80s. *grumble grumble*
The best thing fall is…the new tv shows.
Okay, maybe it’s a toss-up between the new shows and Thanksgiving dinner. But, while Turkey Day only lasts until all the leftovers run out (or you get sick of them), there are at least a few shows to keep your mental belly full all season long.
Here’s what’s on my list:
James Spader strikes a Hannibal Lecteresque pose with his own fascinating twist and everyone has a secret agenda. Good stuff so far.
Apocalypse. American history. Mythology. A classic American scary story and an anachronistic hero. What isn’t there to love?
The Walking Dead
This is one of those shows I hate to love. It just gets more and more intense every season and there’s no guarantee your most loved characters will survive (or stay sane).
And one that’s premiering Friday:
Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Oh my. It has to be good.
I see all the shows on my list are pretty dark. Apparently, I have to branch out a little. Guess I better go research some comedies.
Right after I watch the last episode of The Walking Dead again.
Recently, I read an article by Cindy Zablockis asking “what ever happened to horror movies that actually scared [us]?”
I recently watched the latest version of Final Destination, not sure what number, I lost count. Within fifteen minutes I was bored. Nothing in the movie actually scared me or even had me on the edge of my seat. I haven’t felt that heart racing, eyes open wide as I wonder what will happen next for a long time while watching a movie.
I can’t recall the last, recent horror movie that really scared me. Grossed me out, sure. Made me uncomfortable for all the wrong reasons, yep. But scared me? Left me having to sleep with the lights on? Nightmares?
Have you ever noticed that, when you send or receive email from a smartphone or tablet, you get a little advertising in the signature. “Sent from my brand-spanking new iPhone 5600 with 3D Laser Mind Control. You know you’re jealous,” or something like that.
Okay, okay…it’s actually a little more boring than that. But don’t you wish it was a little more fun?
