    Re: Zone One

    Romero's original subtext implied rampant consumerism, but certainly it can be applied a number of ways. Single-minded purpose is a scary thing, as evidenced by the actions of fundamentalists the...

    Zone One

    Zombies are all the rage these days. For anyone who enjoys this sort of thing, Colson Whitehead's Zone One is a must read. Possibly the most engaging novel featuring ravenous revenant hordes I've...

    Nomad, I'm used to my missus taking a long time coming home because the woman can think of an errand for every six feet of travel. What always worries me is her running afoul of the kitchen rug...

    Blog

    I just recently realized there was a blog area on this site, so from this point all entries will be posted on my blog rather than here. Much simpler. Thanks for reading! :D

    Re: Cloverfield
