zombies will exist

Do you know what Andrew Lincoln, Tony Goldwyn and Tom Mison all have in common??

All three of them were the captains of their “ships”.

And it’s sad that only one showrunner was listening. We had Tony out there pleading for Olitz and Tom doing interviews where he flat out said Ichabod was in love with Abbie…and yet only on the show where zombies exist do we get a healthy I/R couple in love. Go figure.

Better endings than TFP: PSBattle [#9]

Jawn of the Dead:

“What do they even want with us?  Can you understand what they’re saying?”

“Zombie isn’t one of my stronger languages, but I think… something about refrigeration?  And… taking a sh-  ah, no, an idiom: dishonoring a legacy.”

“And since when do zombies exist?  Is this rational?”

“Not sure about rational, but people we know always come back from the dead, haven’t you noticed?  Well, except clients, but they don’t count.  Ah, of course - refrigeration.”

“Right…  So is Mary a zombie now?!”

“John.  I don’t know how to tell you this, so I’ll just say it.  You’re a zombie now.  You got shot in the face, remember?”

“…”

“You have 48 hours to find Rosie a new home,  before the sickness takes you.  That’s why we came out here in the first place.  But - you do know, don’t you - I’d be happy to take her?  I love your daughter.  She’s a part of you, of course I’d do anything for her.“

“Sherlock, have I ever told you, one of the reasons I love you?  You’re brilliant, you know that?  You have the most… delicious… brain.”

“Um.”

(Playing a bit fast and loose with zombie lore here, but I wanted something to counteract all the fluff of yesterday.  Just posting these as a series now, since the battle didn’t really take off as I’d hoped.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  And at this point I’m mostly indulging my desire to broaden my GIMP skills while taking cheap shots at S4 under the radar.  Still welcome to join in!)

Do zombies exist in your setting?

How are they created?
>Are they created by a virus? (Resident Evil is a fan of this method.)
>Are they created by parasites? (This link has several parasites and fungi listed that currently exist, though none on the list affect humans)
>Are they created by necromancers?
>>Is “zombie” a general term for someone brought back to life, or does it refer only to one type?
>>Do zombies brought this way retain their old personalities?
>>Do they have self-awareness?
>>Intelligence?
>>Is their body decayed, or fully restored?
>>>Does it depend on how long the person was dead before becoming a zombie?
What do they eat?
>Do they require sustenance at all, or (as would likely be the case for a virus or parasite infection) does the zombie simply exist to spread the pathogen regardless for the body’s needs?
>If they’re undead, how do they digest what they’ve consumed?
How mobile are they?
>Are they as fast as humans?
>Faster?
>Do they shamble along as though sleepwalking?
>Do they tend to run into things or seem particularly disinterested in their surroundings?
>Can they run?
>Can they climb?
>How high can they lift their legs? (If they cannot lift their legs very high, they would be unable to climb stairs, boulders, or particularly steep hills.)
Are there any physical symptoms that indicate someone is a zombie? Remember what causes the zombies when taking this into consideration.
>Can any of these symptoms be confused with mental or physical disorders or disabilities?
If zombies are created through non-necromancer means, is there a way to detect this before symptoms become visible?
If zombies are created by necromancers, is there a way to prevent this from occurring?
Is the existence of zombies widely known?
Are zombies innately violent?
>If not, how do people view them?
>>As disgusting things?
>>As pitiful creatures?
Are there any ways to effectively kill zombies? For example, in old mythos, salt is usually very effective against the undead, though people nowadays believe a shotgun should be one’s go-to.

I’m really enjoying Westworld, but @trebaolofarabia made a point that I keep circling back to when I watch. It’s kind of hard to imagine Westworld existing in a near future to our own timeline and being able to thrive in a social climate anything like our own, unless progressive movements just… stopped.

We haven’t seen much of the canon ‘real world’ yet, but the human leads include a black man, several women, and at least one lesbian, which seems to imply that it’s not a right-wing dystopia. But WestWorld is, at least in part, a rape simulator in which sexual violence and slaughter of indigenous folk is a built-in storyline.

The show is about exploring consciousness and morality regarding artificial intelligence, so it requires the audience to accept that the general public does not have much empathy towards near-human robots. Kind of like how zombie movies are set in universes where zombie movies don’t exist, WestWorld probably exists in a timeline I which Asmiov, Star Trek: TNG, Speilberg’s “A.I.”, and other sympathetic robot stories were never made.

I dunno. If a video game were produced today in which you were expected, even encouraged, to rape innocents and slaughter natives in a historical setting, it would be incredibly controversial and get banned in many countries.

I’m not saying it’s impossible, or totally inconceivable. Just that WestWorld being such a success (with no major public criticism that we’ve seen? I missed some of episode 2) is harder to imagine at the end of 2016 than when the original movie was released in 1973. I’m really interested to know if this addressed in some way, like “oh you know we have mostly conquered our real-life divisions and vices so now we use fictional catharsis to make sure no REAL people get hurt”.

Same. 

Joseph fucking Sugg. Can we all just take a moment to appreciate that he exists and makes videos for us on three channels.

He’s a YouTuber. A talented singer. A graphic novelist (author). Vlogger. And a sexy ass motherfu-!

I’ve been a subscriber for quite a fucking while now.. so if there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that, honestly, he’s just an adorable weirdo with a camera who’s extremely kind and funny. With abs sculpted by the gods. 

So, same Tyler. Same.

Major showed up at my apartment this morning with five yellow coolers filled with brains. He stole them out of the back of this car that was parked behind some place called Meat Cute. It’s like a butcher shop or something. He thinks it’s a zombie headquarters and he’s more convinced than ever that zombies exist.
