Horror movies are my genre of choice. Out of all things horror, my favorites involve Zombies. Almost anything that deals with a Zombie Apocalypse is good in my book. The leaders of my fascination have to be, “The Walking Dead” on AMC and the video game, “Left 4 Dead” on the Xbox 360. If something like this really happened, I would expect it to look how it’s portrayed on the previously mentioned show or game.
So what if it really happened? Where would you go? If you were split from your family or group what would you do? Since we were kids we were told that if we were ever lost to stay in one place. Eventually someone would find you but this never involved zombies. Would you stay in one place in hopes that your group would find you or would you leave? Your chances are rather slim if you head out by yourself but what if you’re given the task of scouting ahead for the group? Or what if you’re simply lost?
If you happen to find something of use or importance to others you’re obligated to leave some sort of message right? This obligation is what interests me the most. You’re alone and separated from your family or group, you get to a spot where you think others will head, and you leave a note for them to find. What would your note say? I think it would be very interesting to see what your responses would be. I would like for you to put yourself in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and think about what you would do to survive. If you reached safety or what was thought to be safe, what message would you leave for other survivors?
What I want to do is document all of your notes on a new blog. You submit the message you would leave and I will post it for others to read. You can name where you live right now as a starting point or you can use any location you want. The point is to dive into your imagination and come up with notes that you would leave for others to read. Maybe someone will stumble upon your message and give an update on the current state of that specific location. You could even leave tips on how to take down a zombie. It’s up to you and it’s all about interaction and participation. The more that participate, the more interesting it will be. If this sounds confusing I will give you an example.
“It’s crazy out here babe. I made it to Holland Police Department but it’s empty. I hope you see this. I’m heading south to Saugatuck. The state police has a post there.”
In the above example, I have left a message for my loved one and anyone else who may pass through. I want to see something like this from you, the readers, of this new blog. It can be anything you want but it has to be within the scope of a Zombie Apocalypse. Let’s dig deep folks. It’s time to let your imagination and creativity flow. If you were in this horrific scenario, what would you leave behind? What would your note say?

On today’s edition of Tech Thursday we take a look at a site that is musical and addicting. If there is one site you should be wasting your time on, this is one of them. Have fun and don’t be alarmed at the tabs on my web browser in the video. I was doing some research for a new project in class. Cheers!

Hello everyone it’s pretty late but I wanted to make sure and post up a special JCast with none other than Nimrod of the Nimrod Diaries and our most excellent friend, Karl. It was a great first session and one that was entertaining and educational. Now, I know the word “educational” may sound like a bore but I had the chance to do things that I have never done before. For example, the day started out with shooting a couple handguns at the range and one of which was a Smith & Wesson 500. That gun was straight out of the book of Tackleberry from Police Academy. I also shot a crossbow and believe me when I tell you that it was superb! The discussion was excellent and I’m looking forward to digging deeper into the way of the Nimrod in reference to learning how to shoot, hunt, and even fish. Everything mentioned is something that I never learned growing up so why not start now, right? A big thanks goes out to Nimrod for the excellent venison steak, hospitality, and to Karl for the Urban Assault Growler’s from Paw Paw Brewing Company. The brew was excellent and I look forward to our next session. Without further ado I present you with a short clip of our shooting and of course, the JCast with special guests, Nimrod and Karl.
