Night of the Living Politicians

Watching the classic horror movie Night of the Living Dead in this season of increasingly antagonistic political ads, I am drawn to the thought that many of the politicians vying for our votes are very much like Ben and Mr. Cooper.

They both have a plan to keep the people in house safe from the shambling monstrosities outside, plans that are not necessarily mutually exclusive.  But they're so busy fighting each other that, instead of keeping anyone safe, they actually ensure that the house is overrun by the flesh eating living dead.

Officials from both major parties are at fault.  By creating an atmosphere of suspicion, fear, and distrust, by refusing to see anything outside of their narrow field of vision, by allowing ego and one-ups-manship to be the guiding rule they are ensuring our destruction.

Happy Halloween - if you're into that sort of thing.  We are around here.  Dune helped me out this afternoon, allowed me to stage a few photographs with him.

Biblical Limericks: We Don’t Read the Apocrypha, Anyway

The book of Ecclesiasticus
doesn’t apply to Protestant us,
so when it says that sin
can be, by almsgivin’,
redressed, we ignore it without fuss.

Ecclesiasticus 3: 30

A Real Nightmare - a Freesound Project

One of the sounds that I have shared at the Freesound Project has been used in a short film. A very short film.  I mean, really short.  It's  a 14 second film.
