Those who know me know that I routinely watch zombie movies in order to "stay sharp" and review proper killing techniques for that inevitable day when the Dead Walk the Earth, but in the meantime I simply cannot condone this kind of anti-zombie discrimination. As long as they keep their urges in check they have every right to shuffle around like the rest of us.

Behold the magic plastic ring I dug up in my yard today!
I've already caught myself calling it "precious" twice.
Or how about a wedding ring that morphs into a class ring when a hottie is around - the sales pitch could be "One Ring to Fool Them All!"
Okay, here's this months shout out to The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement VHEMT

I woke up miraculously fluent in 6 languages the morning after I took a vow of silence.
When a genie appeared I struggled between wishing for peace in the Middle East or a new sports car. I just got a speeding ticket.
As generally tragic as these religion-based wars are, the only bystanders I truly feel sorry for are the atheists.
Do you think every language has a word for "cankles"?

A well stocked and attended show and a $100 prize to yours truly - so come on up, drinks on me.
NEWS FLASH: Despite the damage and subsequent repairs inflicted on him by me, your inept Master of Ceremonies, during filming of Tales 2, I'm proud to report that "Mr Sunshine" here has been awarded an Honorable Mention at the "Fire and Mud" show ongoing at the Lansing Art Gallery. Perhaps the jury looked deep into those eyes and just knew they better award him something for their own good.

We're receiving spam from the future! What is this strange, new language? In 2038 have the machines finally taken over and out of boredom send out endless spam emails to the past accounts of future victims of their robot revolt? Taunting us with warnings that we cannot decipher?
Or has the space-time vortex distorted the text so that now I cannot decipher that, yes, even in the year 2038 I still can achieve penis enlargement or a lower mortgage rate or buy Cialis at ridiculously low prices?

I'm not sure if this place helps you if you suddenly start wearing a beret and craving brie or offers protection from a possible catastrophic invasion of Pierres and Jean Claudes.

God bless America, George Bush and Kevlar.
Thought it's a good day to break out the old cover from the late great "Hall of Shame" zine issue 4 published by Mary Jo Bole -
Zen Nick says:

From a British poll:
"...a majority of the Britons questioned described Americans as uncaring, divided by class, awash in violent crime, vulgar, preoccupied with money, ignorant of the outside world, racially divided, uncultured and in the most overwhelming result (90 percent of respondents) dominated by big business."
- Jesus Christ! What, they got spies over here or something??
" A massive 83 percent of those questioned said that the United States doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks."
- Hell, we don't even care what WE think!
"President Bush fared significantly worse, with just one percent rating him a "great leader" "
- Hey, why did they poll the FOX News cast? (or was that "one percent" just being sarcastic?)
Happy Birthday America! You Rock!

I caress your eyeballs with the all the compassion of the living dead
I am dread
I am mayor of Meattown and you are the community lamb
Kept alive for impregnation researching the eating of your children
The unmistakable fat mass that inhabits town squares
I am beware
The Kali sprouted arms of decadent consumerism
The utilization of all orifices and the synthetic creation of a few more
As insatiability begins to make their own shit smell like dinner
I am done

The magician's brief performance announcement - "Disappearing One Night Only!"
My personal linguist and all around social commentator D. Rutland inputed that "consumerotica" can also refer to the phenomenon of the 'disappearance' of the genitals of the stereotypical cheeseburger fed, triple gutted WalMart customer which causes them to nilly-willy scarf up product in an attempt to satiate the still-quivering sexual appetite that can no loner be serviced below the belt. The "price drop" signs are foreplay. The check-out line orgasm. The parking lot post-coital buyer's remorse.
Now, more than ever, I believe in the Moorglade Mover.
Part found metal. Part ceramic. All "Lady Bird Johnson". My naughty pet spider.
Okay, let's take it down a notch and just gander at my rose bushes.

My neologism for the day: "consumerotica" - the seemingly inexhaustable mass of goods, products and what-nots that fill our baskets in the never ending commodification of the sensual.
