Apparently I'm a bit blocked and need a little break. So in order to make the posts I do make much better I'm going to take Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays off. Ty for your understanding. :)

More Zombies

OK I know you're probably sick of zombies but I'm kind of stuck on them. Today is fast zombies vs. slow zombies. Personally I prefer slow zombies because I could beat them I'd die in a second if the zombie was fast.

Theories -
Fast - they have a that makes them attack and eat human flesh. They'll attack anything that's alive. They push themselves further and further then anyone would if they were in control of themselves. The disease takes over and the person is no longer themselves. Whether or not they would be themselves again if they were to be cured is unknown.

Slow - they were killed by the disease that now reanimates them and makes them a zombie. The disease has to move them and make them do everything. There is no human host there. So it's slow and moves in lurch movements. The disease needs human flesh to live in its host so it eats human flesh. There is no cure. There is no way to bring them back because they would just be dead again. Might as well just kill them instead of trying to rid them of the sickness.

Z is for Zombies

I really should get a video of it. My friends kid does the cutest thing. If you ask her what Zombies say she says "eat your brains". Just a thought.

So I rented 28 days later. It was good. It different from other zombie movies in a few ways. First the zombies didn't shuffle they ran. Second you could kill them without a head shot. It was still really hard to kill them and all. It was still better to get a head shot. Over all I'd say rent it if you're over 18.

Lately I'm on a zombie kick. I'm going to tell you a bit about my favorite zombie stuff.

Favorite zombie song - Yes there is a zombie song complete with video
It's not new but I come back to it often for a bit of a laugh.

There are a lot of zombie movies. It's hard to pick the very best but right now I'm hooked on Shaun of the Dead. It's really really funny. I want to own it. Some of my other favorite zombie movies are dawn of the dead, army of darkness, and resident evil. Here is a nice list of zombie movies -

It really surprised me to think of how many zombie books I read. My favorite zombie book is World War Z by Brooks. World War Z is great. You don't think about a lot of things that have nothing to do with zombies that would be effected by a mass zombie outbreak. I really think that everyone should read this book. But my favorite zombie series would be Laurel K Hamilton's Anita Blake books before she stopped raising the dead.

I had a BBQ last night and I started thinking about what a BBQ would look like if it was fun of paranormals. What would different groups bring.

Werewolves - They would be the host. There would be lots of meat and a big fire. Maybe even a pit to cook a big pig or deer in on a spit.

Vampires - They would be the brew masters. You'd have to be careful of anything red. But if you live on a liquid diet you'd definitely get good at mixed drinks.

Spell casters - They would bring side dishes. Much like Alice though you'd have to be careful to read the descriptions. After all one might make you smaller and the other might make you bigger.

Ghosts - These guys would be the entertainment. They would reenact their deaths or something. They can't really interact with things so it would be hard for them to do anything else.

Demons - Desserts of course. After all anything containing large amount of chocolate is considered sinful.

Hehe if only I could project the picture in my head onto the puter. You'd get a kick out of it.

Dangerous Games by Keri Arthur

Dangerous Games by Keri Arthur. Pages 356. Science fiction. This is the fourth book in the Riley Jenson Guardian Series. Riley Jenson just wanted to do a basic secretary type job, find her soul mate, have a white picket fence, and a child. Was that to much to ask? Apparently it was. Instead she has a Nemesis, an over protective lover, another lover, she can't have kids, and she's forced to work as a guardian when one of her ex's pumped her full of drugs without her consent it did weird things to her already messed up DNA. Now she's developing more psychic powers on top of the fact that she's half werewolf and half vampire. The government is sending her out on all kinds of odd and dangerous jobs. She's not a happy girl. Heck she's not even sure she can live through all this.

dust pixies.

I was watching a pledge commercial yesterday and made an interesting discovery. Pledge is employing dust pixies. They are magical little creatures that hunt down dust bunnies. On top of everything they are very very rare. Scientists are very confused as to why however since their major source of nutrition is plentiful. They eat dust bunnies. They can only assume that they must be a delicacy to some other group of creatures that we have yet to discover. Maybe the job with pledge will help them replenish their numbers. And in parting I have a blessing for you all. May your house be infested with dust pixies.

A difficult choice

What do you do when you have to choose between getting the monster and saving the kid? There are arguments for both sides. I know most people don't think there is an argument for letting the kid die. Think of it this way though. One kid now apposed to the possibility of 10 or 20 later. Plus you don't know if when the monster gets away this time that you'll ever be able to catch it again. It could be gone for good and you will never know the extent to it's murderous rampages. Also we are assuming that there is no way you can do both. This isn't one where the hero is so good they can rescue the kid and catch the villain in one move. Things just aren't going to work out on that one. Now weigh all that against looking at a kid who is injured and just letting them go. Could you possibly live with yourself if you knew that you were responsible for their last moments ending in horrible pain. I think that even knowing that I could be allowing awful things to happen in the future I'd have to save the kid now. Then work really really hard to make sure nothing went wrong later.

The Dream-Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon

The Dream-Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Pages 340. Romance. Arik is an unfeeling god of dreams. Arik decides that the passion he feels when visiting Megeara is worth giving up his immortality even if it will be only a short visit. Unfortunately the Greek Pantheon isn't so nice and all deals are full of twists and turns. Bur Arik doesn't care if his life is cut short by his visit to earth. He only wants to have a taste of emotions. Megeara has been having the oddest dreams and really wants to visit them over and over. However she must find Atlantis. If for no other reason then to seek revenge for the deaths of several of her family members. If she finds it though she may release an ancient evil goddess. This book was OK. It lacked the certain something though that keeps me coming back to Kenyon's books over and over. I'm not exactly sure what it was though.

The Power of the Montage

So little time so much to get done. With the power of the montage we wouldn't have to worry about having enough time. In the space of minutes we could do what we needed to do for months. You would see clips of what was happening and then you'd see the finished product at the end. Think about how much you could get done if you had the power of the montage. I'd finish the knitting I have been working on for myself. All the shopping I did today would take a matter of 15 minutes instead of the 4 hrs it took me. Oh best one yet a medical recovery. You'd see flashes of Dr visits, maybe bits of surgery, and in the end you'd see a healed person. Oh if you could only harvest the montage for real life instead of relegating it to movies and books. Think of what we could get done in our life times. :)

Conjuring is a debated topic. Basically the idea is that this class of spells create things from nothing. However there is also a little thing where you can't create things from nothing. So the debate is are you gathering useless pieces of energy and molecules of matter and turning it into something else or are you stealing? So anything where you are suddenly in possession of something you didn't previously have without putting in money or effort is stealing. It's an interesting theory but if you follow it to strictly all magic becomes evil. Since if you create fire out of thin air you're actually taking it from somewhere else. If you create water you're taking it from someone etc... I like the idea of using waste particles in the environment around us much more. Of course there is the third option. It's just magic.

dream invasion

So I talked yesterday about it being possible to go into someones dreams and make decisions for them. It's clearly immoral to invade someones dreams without their permission. However, How do you get someone to give you their permission if they don't believe you can do it in the first place? Even if they say yes you know they're thinking there is no way you can actually come into my dreams. So do you weight the options as to why you are going into their dreams. Are you going to convince them not to do something stupid? Are you going to help them make good investments in their future? What about going there to have lots of 'fun' and relieve pressure? Does that count as for their own good? Not to mention that you can't control who might have these abilities. They could be very bad people. People willing to do whatever they can to control you. Hopefully people with the abilities can police other with them so that the bad seeds can't do to much damage.

I've been having very vivid dreams and this has lead me to think more about dreams.
I'm also reading a book that deals heavily in dreams. So I was thinking what if there really were people who could go into other peoples dreams? What could you do to effect a person in the dream world other then wake them up. You could really control people if you could control their dreams. People frequently make a lot of decisions when asleep. Well they may not make the final decision but your subconscious works on it a lot. So if you could go in and influence what they were thinking on a subconscious level you could really effect what they did in the everyday world. I'll post more about dream stuff later I think. It seems like there is a lot of room to expand upon this.

I always kind of wanted a really cool power that you could show off if need be. You know if I was to have special super powers. Something like being a fire starter or something. Then I was playing this game and the hardest freaking character to kill was the one with regeneration. They couldn't do anything special they could just heal themselves. I started thinking off the different characters who heal.
Wolverine - The Xman who didn't' do anything really cool until he was taken as a subject and given the antimantium (probably spelling this wrong) claws and skeleton.
Priests - In just about any game you play priests are easy to hurt but they can heal themselves and that can make all the difference.
Trolls - They have a regenerative power that just kicks butt. Try killing one of those.
A lot of magic cards - regeneration was always a good power to have cause as long as you had a bit of spell casting ability set aside the opponent couldn't just take you out.
Think about it a bit. All those ills you have you could just fix.

The Mythical Powers of the Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny is one powerful dude. It's a good thing he chooses to use his powers for good instead of evil.
1 - He can summon to him millions of eggs in one moment. We know he doesn't take a long period of time to collect them cause they would go bad if he did. If he wanted to employ this skill for evil he could let them spoil before doing something like egging a house.
2 - If they are summoned he doesn't take them all from one place. He spreads out the love so that no one person notices a drop in supply. He could completely wipe out someones business.
3 - He decorates the eggs with pretty colors. Instead of eggs if he were evil he'd be one bad graffiti artist.
4 - He also delivers candy which follows the top two rules.
5 - He comes and goes without being seen. If he were trying to be evil he could be one of the best thieves of all time. Or a major assassin.
6 - He may also be able to jump very very high and very very far. If this is the case he would be very hard to catch. Of course he's probably leave a trail of Easter grass and bunny fur.

Happy Easter

I hope everyone enjoyed the Easter holiday. I'm sure we all know the story of Jesus and raising and etc. I kind of wonder though. What's with the eggs and bunny's? Two possible stories.
1- the Hare club for men. This is the fun theory from south park. It says that Jesus made a bunny Pope. They put the eggs out as a symbol of the injustice of having a human in the seat.
2 - The more realistic option is that the church Incorporated these holidays in order to convert Pagans who celebrate Ostara relative close to this which celebrates fertility. Bunny's are very fertile and you don't get babies without eggs.

Sorry I missed a post Saturday. I've been very busy lately and am kind of treading water to get it all done.

Game Review
Puzzle Quest: This is a DS game. It has one down side. You each have to have the game in order to play other people. Bonus Highly addictive and really fun. It's combines the idea of quests and role playing with puzzles. I already have problems resisting puzzle game so this one just drove me gaga. I've been playing it between commercials on TV, while talking with grandparents, and while washing laundry. Plus it's ds so it's highly portable.

Humanity part 3

Witches and warlocks can lose their humanity as well. Now you may think they really couldn't because they always stay human however that's not necessarily true. When a magic user becomes consumed with the power of magic they may actually transform themselves. Some even go so far as to attempt immortality spells. Of course usually there are unforeseen problems with these spells but few think of this fact. So how could you tell if you're a magic user and you're losing your humanity.
1 - You no longer feel the need to sleep or eat even when you're not in the middle of a crisis.
2 - You look upon fellow humans as insignificant ant there to be used for your amusement.
3 - You are looking for a way to gain immortality or similar effects.
4 - Even your most cherished loved ones can not convince you of the folly of your ways.
Again I'm sure there are more then 4 ways to determine if you are a magic user losing your humanity but I don't wanna take up to much of your time. ;)

Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn

Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn. SciFi. Pages 303. Kitty gets herself into it again. You'd think that by putting herself in the middle of no where in hopes of writing her book would keep her safe. No such luck. The area she picks is just full of bigots who aren't afraid to show it. On top of that Ben and Cormac have brought an entirely new set of trouble to her little world. I can't wait for her next book.

Humanity part 2

Vampires have a problem with losing humanity because of their necessity to live off them for a very very long time (well if they're lucky). When vampires completely lose their humanity it can be very very bad for people. In fact if you are a person and you find a vampire who's lost it's humanity count yourself dead. A few signs a vampire might be losing it.
1 - you start viewing human as cattle.
2 - If you don't need to sleep in a coffin and you sudden get rid of your comfortable bed to sleep in a little box.
3 - If you start thinking about taking over the world and bending it to your will. (this might also mean you are an evil genius)
4 - If the idea of using human heads as soft balls no longer bothers you.
I'm sure there are many many more things that warn you of your fall into darkness as a vampire. But I figured this was a good start.

Humanity part 1

In a lot of werewolf books the werewolves talk about losing their humanity. This is usually due to cutting themselves off from human society. Of course this is at odds with what you would probably want to do upon finding out you were a werewolf. I would think the most popular thing to do would be to lock yourself away from people so you wouldn't hurt others. Of course this may be putting to much kindness into the hearts of humans. However it's fairly easy to determine when you are drawing away from society.
Here are some of the warning signs of drawing away from society.
1 - spending more and more time in Wolf form and less time in human form.
2 - Finding humans less tolerable and more of an irritation (of course I do this every day so it isn't as much of a definite sense).
3 - Forgoing human food for raw foods from the hunt (example: eating a raw rabbit instead of rabbit stew).
4 - Not worrying about the conventions of human society (example: walking around naked in your area of the world because you don't care if you're naked or not).
Well have a nice day everyone. TTFN

The Last of the Red-Hot Vampires by Katie MacAlister

The Last of the Red-Hot Vampires by Katie MacAlister. Pages 340. Romance. MacAlister does it again. She's created another funny take on vampires and soul mates. Theo isn't a vampire when he meets Portia. Portia isn't immortal when she meets Theo. In fact she doesn't even believe that immortality exists. Her friend Sarah totally believes in all things paranormal. In fact they even have a little beat going that if Portia can't find a reason for something paranormal Sarah gets to tell her I told you so and vise versa. None of these three would have guessed what was about to happen to them. Check it out.

April Fools Day

I didn't post on this day because I am protesting April fools day. I don't particular like this holiday ish kind of day. I hope you didn't fall for anything.
