Couldn’t find my old paperback to photograph and couldn’t spare the time to search for it. (It’s a terrific book, BTW.)
Inspired by this news story.
I had to report to the Tarrant County Criminal Justice Center on Monday. Let me count the fun and let me count the games…in THIS (almost 20 minute!) video.
It’s taken three weeks to finish this thing. I’d hoped it’d run under 1500 words so I could submit it a new website I’d found, but somehow it got away from me, growing to just “shy” of 5000 words. 😦
From the Overview:
A future apocalypse is a perennial favorite in fiction. At the direction of authors and screenwriters, it has befallen our planet in countless ways. We’ve been overrun by zombies, aliens, machines; been done-in by enviro-disasters, medical-hazards, plummeting asteroids; been besieged by falling sharks, crawling fish, monstrous mutant insects; and finally, perhaps scariest of all, we’ve merely suffered to death under the boots or pumps of bleak totalitarians.
Welcome to 2016, wherein the feminized West is well into the process of eating its own tail. You see, in the real world, if one simply has patience, humans can be taken step by teeny tiny step until an entire civilized people are willing to commit cultural-suicide. Can those of us with eyes still wide open get our countrymen to stop before they get to a vital organ? Stay tuned.
Sorry, world. If it hadn’t been for “American aggression in the mideast,” none of those 24,000 Muslim suicide vest-ers, tourist hotel & school shoot-em-ups, random blow-em-ups, etc. since 9-11 would have EVER happened. The world’s been humming along or singing Kumbaya (or the Gregorian-chant equivalent) since 666 A.D., now hasn’t it.
