From the ancient times up to now, we’re still in love with the idea.

Stories about zombies are rampant. I first learnt of it in the traditional story telling during Halloween season. Now, seasons after seasons of TV shows are featuring zombies. The end of the Twilight Saga, whether you accept it or not, will be a blockbuster in a few weeks. Gamers will kill off zombies again in the new Resident Evil 6. Even songs and commercials are inflicted by the zombie virus.

Why do we love it?

Hollywood can produce movies where we don’t have to use our imaginations. What we watch in movies is extremely believable. In the top 10 bestselling horror movie franchises, Texas Chainsaw Massacre rounded the 10th position with $364 million, and while the Exorcist notched the top 1 with $2.3 billion. This meant people wanted to be scared (for a while). These people wanted to see gore. This stuff is wicked cool.

The zombie idea is interesting. We wanted to know how humans would fare against the dead. There are different stories that can be created around it. I’m sure you’ve seen one where the character saw a zombie close friend (or family). Would he shoot in the head or let the zombie kill him?

Aside from an array of possible stories, zombies won’t die out because there are rooms for variations. Zombies are supposed to be dead, only the virus controls the body to disseminate terror. But now, they can have emotional memory: the zombie close friend can stop himself from attacking, hinting the main character to run because he doesn’t want to hurt.

Among the weak points of being a zombie is the sluggishness. You’ll be easy to snipe and run from. But Edward’s flashy. The witch in Left 4 dead Xbox game will chase you.

Zombies are ugly and bloody. But the bulk of the dread comes from their ability to transform you into another and well produced sound effects. See this, they can be funny as well like this zombie in Starburst commercial.

People can play around the idea of undead and be lucrative in selling it. So zombies will remain still.

Should we have more zombie stories or do we need to move on?

I don’t want to watch someone else live their lives.

TV; we all love it. Everyone has that favorite show that they set time aside to watch. The really dedicated TV lovers have several that they time their lives to. There is something for every member of the family. Cartoons for the kids, lifetime for the ladies, sports for the men, soaps for grandma; there are an endless variety of chooses. Sadly though that seems to be the most exciting part most people’s day, they wake up and watch the news while they get ready for work, on their lunch breaks they catch up on the drama of their soap operas, after which time they spend the rest of the day wondering what new plot twist tomorrows show will bring. Then when the day is don’t they rush home unwinding with their regularly scheduled programs, and end their nigh by listening to the news again; allowing the night anchor redeliver news the morning anchor may have missed.

I myself don’t watch TV for two reasons. The first; I did at one point share the same love for TV as anyone else, and I also had my regular shows that I would make sure that I caught. The shows that I watch depicted situations that I was dealing with in my everyday life. I’d watch and see how the main character would present his problem. Somehow in the 22 minutes of the program he’d managed to make several attempts but fails to fix his problem sparking a few laughs along the way, address someone else’s problem, and ultimately fix his own problem, and learning a life lesson all in that made him better for the experience.  I’d engulf myself in the show, but get anger when I see that my own situation isn’t resolved with a TV show-like quickness. I’d adopt a desire for someone else’s life only because they may be presented with adversity but before the day was over they had it solved. I guess you can say I was one of those extreme TV watchers.

The second reason: I don’t want to watch someone else live their lives, I want to experience the excitement of doing something for myself. When we live through the people that we watch eventually we will grow to dislike the life we have.  I want to be the person jumping out of the planes, or breaking records in someone’s Olympics. I don’t want to talk with friends about how they life they lived on that one show was exciting, I want to be able to say “they could have made a show from my exciting life.” I’m sure a little TV is fine, but at this time I just don’t have time for TV!

Get up and live, the TV will be there tomorrow;
life is now!

I’m a 22 year old college student currently pursuing my associates degree in computer science. I’m an artist, well I am whenever I get a chance to be which is far and in between here lately.

Scars, moles, and extra nipples are all subject to cosmetic correction unless the owner regard them as beauty marks.

The popular notion of beauty is perfect all throughout, hair to heels. Makeup and cosmetics are invented for human’s need to conceal the perceived mess in their body, that is, the ‘imperfections’. But really, who defines a part of you as imperfect? These people are focused on camera but they won’t care:

Mila Kunis could just wear matching contact lenses, or Mark Wahlberg could pay a doctor to scrape off his extra nipple. But they haven’t, and it shows that they are not ashamed to carry the ‘imperfections’ themselves. The tricky truth is, a perfect human has imperfections.

I love that these people didn’t succumbed to the demands of hypocritical beauty. I have a scar on my cheek. What imperfection in your body are you proud of?
