Tribute Thursday: The Zombies

Ola mi amigos!

Totally kidding, I have no idea how to speak Spanish and when fans send me emails in Spanish then Google Translate is my friend. So no. I do speak English and Afrikaans and that’s it.

Anyway back to my point. So today is the 21st of December 2012 and according to the Mayan Calendar, we’re all supposed to die today. Obviously this is complete bullshit, but I like to get people’s knickers into knots and make them think that I’m serious when I say I can’t wait for the Zombie Apocalypse.  Here’s the thing. I joke. I make funny:


  [ johk]  Show IPA noun, verb, joked, jok·ing.


1. something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or aprankish act: He tells very funny jokes. She played a joke on him.
So today’s tribute is for the ones that I was looking forward to seeing, but never got to:
The Zombies
Thing is, the end of the world could have been provoked by zombies, natural disasters, aliens, robots, Dr Evil, etc, but my favourite out of everything that could have happened has GOT to be the zombies. Imagine the hordes of people who irritate you on a daily basis turning into zombies. You’d have a very good excuse to bash them in the face then, amIright? lol
The idea of the zombie came from George A. Romero’s 1968 film Night of the Living Dead and has since then the zombie has been about as famous as the vampire, the mummy, the werewolf and various other nightmares. Hopefully Stephanie Meyer won’t make them sparkle in another one of her novels (lol).
SO if you’re feeling in the mood to watch zombie movies in the spirit of the world apparently ending, check these out, they’re the best I’ve seen:
  • 28 Days Later
  • The Cabin in the Woods (SUCH a random movie, so yea…)
  • Dawn of the Dead
  • Day of the Dead
  • I am Legend
  • Night of the Living Dead (All of them)
  • Pet Cemetery (Both)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
  • Resident Evil (All of them)
  • Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island
  • Shaun of the Dead
  • The Walking Dead (TV Show)

Also enjoy some awesome youtube clips I found of my little friends doing their thang and scaring the bejeepers out of Americans. Gotta love it!

Happy Apocalypsing!
