I wrote a story for our local paper.. "the zombie hoarde comes to ******" I got the idea when I had driven out at abut 8:30 at night to pick my middle kid up from a martial arts class and ran into the real zombies around here... clothing hanging off, staggering around aimlessly, one person was walking down the middle of the street with a coat on and this was July... etc. Now, of course I embellished but I only told directly what I saw and the embellishment was possible causes for the hoarde.. zombism. I wrote it as satire basically due to the homelessness after our illustrious mayor closed our homeless shelters and made panhandling legal ( true and true.. brains and change are sorta alike.. ), our outrageous jobless rate here ( some put it at 30%) and the general lawlessness after the sun goes down here, etc... just to get my nemesis' goat : My Mayor who lives 3 streets over from me. The paper printed it.. and aw lawd did the fur fly. Unfortunately there were those who tried to make it racist.. then they ran a pic of me and Im not white. But let me tell you, zombies are real. They just arent dead.. yet. Ambulatory brain dead or soul dead maybe.... or drugged into zombism. Some are just life weary. You want to talk about dead zombies? I dont know any personally. I was born and raised in New Orleans.. there are some there who's life ambition is to live the "zombie lifestyle".. go figure. Hang out in graveyards.. like a death-philia lifestyle thing going on.
My culture has no "zombie" folklore that I know of. Blood eaters, shapeshifters, but no zombies. Thank goodness.. the rez is safe when the
For me I welcome the zombie apocalypse as long as they are the slow Romero dead and not the fast aggressive 28 Days dead. Im getting older and I dont
feel like running a whole lot. Once in a while I teach a class here or there at the community college ( people can do that.. for you brainiacs here..
go teach an ancient alien class or 911 truth class.. make your FBI file thick(er) ) and I was seriously thinking of a Zombie Apocalypse Prep course.
Id use my being already involved in the self defense junk I do in the summer with the kids and add in some virology, trapping, survival, and
folklore/history BS... Voila. Xmas money and more goat getting to be had.
