Flight of the Living Dead drinking game

I saw Flight of the Living Dead at Fantastic Fest this past week. If you're like me (but not enough like me to have been at the screening), you'll inevitably end up watching the newly released DVD at some point in the future. In order to make that experience more bearable for you, I'm posting my official drinking game. Trust me- this will make the whole experience go down a lot smoother.

  • Drink if a character dies twice (in human form-zombies don't count). I think I counted 3 major characters who did this, not including the guy at the end who was bitten but never turned.
  • Drink if, despite years of good movie knowledge, characters deliberately shoot zombies somewhere other than their heads.
  • Drink if a female character is called a "bitch". (Note for lightweights- you might want to stick to drinking when female characters are referred to as something other than "bitch".)
  • Drink when you want to slap the head flight attendant.
  • Drink if one of the good guy characters deliberately does something which could either a) immediately cause the plane to crash or b) infect the rest of the world with the zombie virus.
  •  Drink whenever someone gets dragged into the hole. (You'll know which hole when you see it.)
  • Drink if there's a shot where you can tell the special effects budget ran out halfway through filming. Drink twice if there's fairly decent special effect followed by one that's so horrible it makes you cringe in embarrasment for the team.

Bottoms up!

King of the Road

FYI-I'm not going to be answering my phone from Wednesday to Sunday because I'll be out of the country at this. Don't feel snubbed and wish us luck on our obviously destined record deal. :)

More Dark is Rising angst

Apparently the Dark is Rising movie isn't showing at any of the Alamo Drafthouses in town. That sucks because I want to get really, really drunk while watching that movie (so I have an excuse when I start crying/ranting/having seizures). What will I do?

Those of you who say "just don't go to the movie" have no understanding of my geeky masochism. (Although you should- you all went to see the Star Wars prequels, right?) This film will nag at me until I can find out just how bad it really is. I'm hoping it goes into "so bad it's good" territory- the leaked plot details (there's a snake battle, Will has an evil twin) seem to be pointing that way.

In other Dark is Rising updates, Susan Cooper (the author) was interviewed on NPR earlier today. She said, and I quote, "You do have to do violence to a book to make it into a screenplay — the two mediums are so different. But the alteration is so enormous in this case. It is just different."

That's polite, older British lady for "I hope those rot in for what they've done to my book!"

The whole interview is up online here.

The Bible!

Just because I'm not religious anymore doesn't mean that I don't like me some Bible from time to time:

" Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you." - James 5

I love the Bible's economic apocalypses the best (even though they're the ones I would be on the wrong side of).  :)  How did the most Christian-identified nations become the richest ones anyway?

Boring entry #506- Another appeal to the collective friendslist overmind

So, my tongue has always been unusually white with some pink around the edges. My blood tests have never come back as abnormal except for occasional mild anemia. What could this be caused by? Am I not eating enough of something?

I took an early shift at work

Not even God has to be up this early on a Sunday.

Anyone else up?

Appealing to the collective wisdom of the friendslist

If you were me, with my skills and deficiencies, what would you do for a career? Is there a job you think I'd be good at?

(PS- No teaching)

I am going to kill EVERYONE.

You guys should probably duck.

(Days like this almost make me consider taking birth control pills.)
