Zombie Cliche Lookout: Can’t Have Just One
You’ll notice that, in most zombie stories anyway, you rarely see a zombie all on it’s own outside the first act. That solitary zombie near the beginning? He’s just there to help estabilish the rules and gets things going. After that, they start showing up in twos and threes. Then tens and twenties. Then things get really hairy.
The reason is that zombies, as much as we love them, just aren’t terribly threatening on their own. Let’s face facts here. It doesn’t take a hell of a lot to figure out how to evade or destroy a single zombie. Anyone of sound mind and body should be able to accomplish such a feat. Now, when they start showing up en masse, well, that’s where things start getting scary.
About this Episode:
This and last week were the first episodes I shot with my new light tent. Like the lightbox I used to use, I made it all by myself. I’m quite happy with the results so far. I’m going to put together a how to article for making your own here in the next few weeks.
It seems like we’ve had a lot of meta-commentary going on in the comments of late. By which I mean commenters talking about commenting, and other commenters. Needless to say, it’s not a lot of fun and I don’t believe it adds a whole hell of a lot to the community here. As such, I’m going to put together a brief write-up to outline the rules – for lack of a better term – that’ll we’ll be following henceforth. Don’t worry, nothing too heavy-duty here. I’d just like to see things stay more on topic and eliminate any sort of internet fighting.
Discussion Question: Your Insight
Okay, so lame discussion question this week. I want to know what sorts of things you guys like and dislike about the community here. What needs to be improved, and what do I need to keep my grubby mitts off?
