Welcome to the apocalypse. This is to entertain you with a bit of brevity.

Remember, the most essential tool these days are not a Moss-berg or Glock, but a bidet.

Enjoy.

This is the way the world ends. This is the way the world ends. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.

I like the Stand so don't get me wrong here, but I have recently realized how lazy the opening to the miniseries was. Are we really supposed to believe that a base full of people succumbed to the virus unexpectedly and instantaneously while, for instance, playing ping-pong, when others did not? (Campion himself, the first character we meet, drives halfway across the country before expiring in Arnette, Texas.)

This is what I was trying to say the other day when I had a few too many glasses of cheap red.
The "end of the world" naturally would more than likely be an incredibly, imperceptibly slow process. Not a giant asteroid impact, not a huge nuclear war, not a space-death-ray or alien invasion.

A slow, soft death, nearly noiseless, but far from painless.

The thing is that the world doesn't "end" (at least right now), it just goes on, bruised... and then recovers, then something else happens, then recovers, and so on, until the inevitable fizzle eventually kicks in.
And by the world, I'm mostly talking about the life on the surface of the planet. Everything cycles. Even the sun, everything.

I love the movie and book "The Stand" and that intro always stuck with me.


The thing that amazes me the most about this event is how much of a memento mori it is. Life is resilient, but suffering is inevitable on this planet. So long as there is life, there is pain. But to many, the pain is worth it...

And life goes on.



Dang... that got kinda deep.

Yep I thought it was semi-ridiculous that it killed so fast you would be leaning on a ping pong table paddle in hand, I guess theoretically Campion just gets a whiff and not the full dose, but do viruses even work that way? I know they can be lethal but that quick? I mean its not poison...

Funny how some people think the end of the world is when there are no people left.

Mother nature is warming up to help us on our way.

Yeah, the quality of those old mini-series don't stand the test of time. The quality of Amazon and Netflix series has spoiled those old broadcast dramas for all the coming generations.

All the same I gotta respect Steven King's prolificacy! The guy wrote a lot.

Get the right mindset going then watch infinity wars and as soon as thanos snaps go for a ride around town.


I seen that on Reddit.

HAH! "Don't fear the reaper" was the best part of that opening scene and stupid Youtube won't allow it in the movie LOL (muted out).


But you can listen to the song SEPARATELY on Youtube, just fine.


Sync it up, ghetto style!
