Radioactive by Imagine Dragons is one of those songs you hear and see. Everyone visualizes something similar but but a bit different. The lyrics tell you as much as the music does. From the way the beat hesitates before it drops the the way overall lulls and crests until it’s all on-your-feet self-empowerment. No matter […]
It is somewhat possible that computer games have given us an artificial idea of how it will be to live in a post-apocalyptic world. For a start, I sincerely doubt that 200 years post-event, there’ll still be pre-packaged snacks and good-condition guns hanging around. In fact, it’s likely those things will vanish pretty quickly. Which […]
I work in Boston’s Back Bay-Copley area. I had lunch with my bestie at Copley square last week and that spot between the two bombs is where you can usually find some great food trucks. Sugar Heaven, that candy store next to Marathon Sports where all the blood is staining the sidewalk, is where I […]
In case you haven’t already figured it out (it probably wasn’t that hard though), my last post was an April Fool’s joke. Sadly, ICoS isn’t really building bunkers (but maybe some day!). Okay, so for real, I am back at ICoS (though I never really left). I may not get a post up every week, but […]
ANOMALY 2 from 11 bit studios is going to be available for demo at PAX East this weekend and I’m stoked! Why? Obviously, I’m for anything thing that leads with “build war mechs,” but this glee is mainly because I’m a huge geek for tower defense games. Ninja Town is for real my favorite game. I lent it to my mom […]
So, I watch a lot of post-apocalyptic and dystopian TV. I read a lot of fiction. I thoroughly enjoy doing these things. The problem is with consuming such a huge amount of one thing is your brain starts to go to strange places, thinking strange things. This leads to me questioning all sorts of things […]
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been writing about the zombie apocalypse parenting class I took at Babes in Arms, a local baby store. Part 1 is here and Part 2 is here. This is the third and final installment to the post series. Note: Babes in Arms gave me the complimentary seat in […]
I’m still moving, and currently wondering how I got so much STUFF. I won’t be able to keep so much STUFF with me post-apocalypse, that’s for sure! Like last week I direct you towards an interesting post-apocalypse thing. Awesome Zombie Stories. That should take up an hour or two you should be spending working. And […]
Because we’re moving into our much-more-defensible house very soon, I am too hectic to write a proper post. So I wanted to direct you towards this: Apocalypse Knitwear May it fill the time and energy my post would have today.
A commentary on all of the Avengers characters. Enjoy! And now, back to your regularly scheduled ICoS posts.
Based on the votes yesterday, we have decided a winner! The winner is….Jamie! Jamie, email me at char(@)incaseofsurvival(.)com so we can figure out how to get you your e-book of This is the New Plan. Thanks, everyone, for entering! I enjoyed all of the stories. (Now that the contest is over, you can all write […]
In most popular media about the apocalypse minorities are pretty much Red Shirts– there because someone needs to die so it might as well be them. This was highlighted in a PinkRayGun article recapping the season finale of Falling Skies. The Black Dude Dies First is a well trodden trope in almost all mediums, especially the post-apocalyptic genre. […]

Mental health and emotional well being are about more than being depressed or not being depressed, being sick or not being sick.
Sometimes it’s just about being in balance and taking care of your self– more than physically.
