Zombie Kings

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Watched the presidential debate -- substantial and interesting, if nerve-wracking. I paced the whole time. Certainly a viewer could clearly see the differences between the two candidates. Bush promises to continue doing what he's been doing, and Kerry articulately points out what we could do differently.

Then I saw Shaun of the Dead with Joe. Zombies! Since I've never seen a zombie movie before - in fact, the only other horror movie I've ever seen is The Blair Witch Project - I missed a bunch of the in-jokes, but I enjoyed it and laughed. Best bits: the two or three highly absurd sight/sound gags.
