I found this super cool website while searching for a short story by Edith Wharton. It has a huge collections of short stories and "dark" poems for free, all by really boss people. http://www.horrormasters.com/
In my attempts to talk "old-timey" all the time I am bringing back the word "boss." It is really old-timey enough. Edith Wharton is totally boss because she wrote quite a few ghost stories. She is quoted as saying "I don't believe in ghosts, but I am afraid of them." That is how I feel about zombies.

So nice I took two pictures.
Frank with the back-up dancers. (Frank is year-round, the back-up dancers are not)
My happy skeleton. This guy is up year-round. I don't know what I am talking about. I would keep the Pumpkins year-round too if they didn't get all moldy (cool but a health hazard.)

The next film I saw was the Duchess. Again, I liked this image better than the actual poster. The movie was very long and not much happened in it. Kinda like one of my normal days. The hair and the outfits were very nice though. My mind kept wandering during the whole film. The only thing that kept pulling my back from La La land was the crazy woman sitting in front of us who kept talking to herself during the entire film. Talking to herself VERY LOUDLY and doing the worst thing that movie talkers can do during a film: predicting what will happen next. And they are always WRONG!! And it wasn't even funny because she was by herself. I couldn't even tell her to shut up. This might be me in 30 years.
called REC. From what I hear it is a shot by shot remake, but I still want to see the original. This movie is like being in a Haunted House attraction. Things are always jumping out to scare you and you are not sure what is going to happen next. As with all post-modern Zombie films they don't call the creatures Zombies. They are infected by some form of super rabies. The Z word is never mentioned. My friend Dwido calls me a Zombie Elitist. Just call it what is is: a Zombie is a Zombie. Zombies are bad and they are going to eat you. That is what this film is about.
My two-word reviews of these movies:
Appaloosa: Dusty Men
The Duchess: Big Hair
Quarantine: Nihilistic fun!

Sad news.. The old abandoned building in East Palo Alto that I had deemed my Zombie Apocalypse fortress has been torn down. This place was perfect! A two-story building, completley boarded up (both levels) with iron bars over every window and door. All of the prep work was done! My apartment is a total death zone. Bottom floor, 6 big windows, and in Palo Alto. The people of Palo Alto will be turned into Zombies right away. Zombies can easily break into a Prius and don't give a shit about "home security systems." I am in big trouble.
In other news, I am going to the land of no computers this weekend, my parents house. Maybe now I can catch up on some reading. Between the plague and TV I have not read a thing. I also hope to go see the movie "Quarantine," the first Horror film I will have seen in the theatres for a long, long time..
