The Arcade of Your Youth

Via Kotaku, four “soundtracks” of what you’d hear in a typical arcade during the 80s and early 90s.  The 1992 track is sorta surreal for me.


Yes, there’s a zombie theme happening lately…

You can thank Zombieland for bringing my love of the zombie genre to the forefront once again.  I was finally able to watch Zombieland last night (and less than a year after it’s theatrical release!)  It takes a firm number two slot in my favorite zombie flicks (behind Shaun of the Dead).  That’s likely blasphemy for true aficionados of the genre and I yield to the criticism that I probably rightly deserve.  I just prefer the quirky over gory.

That said, this post about the plants you’re going to need in the Zombie apocalypse over at Plants are the Strangest People is right up my alley.  I just want to add that Sunflowers and Peas are a MUST.

Charting your zombie apocalypse path…

I’m now post “giant horrible scary exam,” which was taking up my every waking moment for the last two months (as well as some of my sleeping moments).  I suspect posts will pick up here for a bit.
