Safety Soap!

Hygiene is of the utmost importance. I hear it’s kitty corner to some type of spirituality. Unfortunately, sometimes, it’s not enough to simply wash away the grime of a hard day’s work. Sometimes you also need to cleanse yourself of the stink of humanity so when you cower in your hidey-hole from the supernatural beasts seeking your flesh to fill their bellies you may go unnoticed.

End of The World Entertainment: Hollywood Wasteland

Free entertainment is the best entertainment. Entertainment is also one of our best recourses for preparing for the apocalypse. You get the option to sit comfortably without the threat of injury or physical exertion and consider what you would do if you were in a given apocalyptic situation. In that very vein, along comes Hollywood Wasteland, a plucky comedy about all the people you’d never want to be stranded at the end of the world with — your friends. Read more

How Do You Know If Your Friend Is Going To Turn Zombie?

Usually a zombie is clearly a zombie. But sometimes you’re not sure if it’s paranoia cocking your gun and pointing it at your friend’s head or logical detachment. He has a wound and it’s bloody. No one, not even him or the zombie whose attack he just survived can be sure he hasn’t been exposed. How do you know he won’t turn? What if he’s the one zombie who turns and still walks and talks...

End of The World Mega Mix

Today I discovered, I can put “90s” into Pandora and it’ll generate a 90s pop or 90s alternative station. Best day of my life. (Sorry, Husband.) It’s like listening to the 90s music channel on cable but I don’t have to be in my living room monopolizing the TV and being laughed at for listening to the cable music channel. My 90s station got me thinking about my dearly missed mixed tapes I use to make by recording songs... Read more

The Mythical Land of Safety and Security and Free Food

It’s in the North. Unless you’re from the North, then it’s in the East. Well if, like me, you’re in the Northeast, it’s in Canada or out West. Maybe down south in Florida. Wherever it may be, it’s a vague and general direction far from where you currently are. There’s someone in your party who wants desperately to go there. It’s the brand new Promised Land where fast food and hot showers still exist, who wouldn’t want to... Read more

But, where will I get my hair done?

I’m kind of obsessed with my hair. And, by kind of, I mean I have to start listing it as a hobby to justify the amount of time I spend paying attention to it. It’s not even tricked out. Just hair on top of a head. an inordinate amount of hair that took years to grow and takes hours to condition and comb or style, but really, just hair. In a post-apocalyptic world, I’m going to be throughly screwed... Read more

Movie: STASIS

Stasis, by Jason Hite, is an 8 minute stop-motion film based on the idea of a future made of bio-mechanical… something. That’s really the most I could understand form reading the blurb and watching it. But, after reading the blurb and watching it, my imagination is running wild. Read more

How Will You Know?

Most scenarios resulting in the end of the world would ease us into apocalypse. There might be a phase of war, or panic, or confusion before everyone left is certain that this is definitely The End. How long would your power need to be out before you started to think it wasn’t ever coming back on? How long would you wait to hear from anyone you know who lives outside of your area before you...

Post-Apocalyptic Eating

So, today I’ve been eating only non-perishables and drinking water. I’m planing to grab a Powerade, depending on the expiration date. If the date is March 9th 2012 or later it’s mine. I’m trying to see what it’d be like to only eat food that would still be good a year into the post-apocalyptic world. I can’t churn butter and I don’t have a chicken or a cow, so dairy is out. I don’t even... Read more
