The History of the Zombie (BLW Contributor)

Cheap Reads

“When I first began looking into a creature I love, zombies, I thought I knew quite a bit.  I thought I’d read and watched enough that I had my bases covered.  Ha!  Boy was I mistaken.  Not only did I learn that there are different types of zombies, but there are tons of zombie myths and legends around the world.

During the Middle Ages in Europe, zombies as we know them now were called revenants.  Revenants were believed to be the souls of people who had died and returned to haunt folks.  They rose from the dead and wreaked havoc on the community typically in the way of murder.  It looked like the zombies we know today, a rawboned, withered away corpse.

In Germany and the surrounding areas, the Nachzehrer was an awkward combination of multiple undead creatures.  They feed on dead bodies, they feed on the living, they even…

As it’s 4th of July weekend passing Independence Day already, AMC decided to have a Walking Dead marathon with character insights of the coming season which is all the way in October this year. As I’m watching old episodes especially last season, I’m starting to notice the shift in the leadership paradigm between the characters of the show.

Of course, Rick Grimes from the beginning was everyone’s leader but after the death of his brother, wife and missing baby, he started to unravel emotional and spiritually. This lead in other people stepping up like Glenn and Michonne, which down the road created a committee with a group of people making decisions for the camp. Making Rick’s responsibilities less and less which he was fine with, as he became a farmer.

But as we saw in the season, a democracy doesn’t last in the zombie world. The committee falls along with the camp with people scattered everywhere in individual groups. But eventually they all meet up again in Terminus in a terrible situation with a bunch of carnivores.

My question is if your stuck in a horrible situation where people or zombies want to harm you, who would you chose to protect or lead you to safety?

Rick, Glenn or the sexy, sword-swinging Michonne?

Personally, I would go with Michonne because Rick is too crazy now and Glenn is a lovesick puppy.

 

Games of Thrones- Season Premiere(Two Swords) “My Little Pony”

Let me say this first before I continue on with the review of the episode, “Thank the Gods that this show is back on TV,” since the season ending of The Walking Dead and True Detective is done for the season, I was about to actually pick up a book. HBO totally knows what they are doing, spacing great shows back to back, so we get the best shows possible. I think they even plan it out so you have to watch Girls and see Lena Dunham naked a bunch of times, which makes you appreciate hot fucking girls on G.O.T. take off their clothes. I am sad that some of the Starks aren’t coming back this season but we will never forget them and so will the Northerners. The North will never forget and what is dead will never die.

The episode opens up with Tywin Lannister forging a new sword from the fallen Young Wolf for his son, Jaime Lannister. We see Jaime back in the Kings Guard armor but the Hand of King does not want Jaime to be of the Kings Guard. Tywin wants his son to be more than a personal bodyguard. But Jaime wants to regain some of his lost honor back and remains in the Guard.

IMG_3164

This is not the same confident Lannister we have seen in the last couple of seasons. He is far different from his former self, which we can see as he gets accustomed to a new hand. His former love Cersei feels the difference between them and gives him the cold shoulder.

IMG_3231

Which I thought, what a horrible bitch! He had to deal with a bunch of shit to get back to Kings Landing including getting his hand getting cut off. At least give him a hand job! (Horrible joke I know, I couldn’t resist.)

IMG_3238

Then we see Jaime dealing with Joffrey, making plans to protect him but Joffrey the little shit makes fun of his own Uncle. As Joffrey looks at a book with all the accomplishments of the Kings Guard and he only see a little bit for Jaime and this destroys him inside. I really hope Jaime kills Joffrey with his good hand.

We see a new character Oberyn Martell, who gets invited to Kings Landing by Joffrey to create a new alliance. I really like Prince Oberyn because he doesn’t care for any Lannisters as he gets annoyed at a brothel when two men sing the Lannister song and attacks one of them. Tyrion saves the men from being slaughtered by the Prince and talk business. Oberyn tells Tyrion why he hates the Lannisters and why he should not be trifle with.

IMG_3174 IMG_3191 IMG_3199

Prince Oberyn is not the only thing he is has to deal with in Kings Landing. He has to deal with his new wife, Sansa Stark not eating because she is still morning the death of he family.

I still think Tyrion is the best character on the show as he tries to comfort Sansa telling her that he liked his brother and respected her mother, even though she tired to execute him. Hilarious.

What is not hilarious is that Tyrion can’t get any nookie from his hot girlfriend Shae because it is a dangerous time in the Kingdom and Tyrion does not want Shae to be in danger but the walls in the kingdom have too many eyes and ears for any truths to get by.

Daenerys on the other hand, looks like she is in control of her own destiny until she tries to stop a fight between her dragons. Jorah tells the Queen,

“Dragons can be never tamed even by their mother.”

IMG_3209 IMG_3215 IMG_3220

Fore sighting, maybe. But those fucking dragons are getting bigger!

Mhysa is heading to the mother of all slave cities as her troops get to see in every mile marker, a slave girl being crucified. I got a feeling the Queen of Dragons is not going to be happy when she gets to the city.

IMG_3270

Mean time we see Ygritte, a woman scorned, preparing her bows for Jon Snow’s heart as the wildings prepare to attack Castle Black. At the same time, Jon is on trial for and admits that he broke his vows but also tells them that the wildings are planning to attack them.

IMG_3239IMG_3243

I love this couple and I really hope they get back together.

IMG_3253

Just kidding!!! I want them to fight it out and then have hot sex on the battlefield! (You want to see it)

IMG_3283 IMG_3287

Personally, the best part of the show is Arya Stark and The Hound in the forest trying to figure out their next move. Arya wants to know why The Hound just lets her go but The Hound knows that Arya is still valuable to him. Arya is still angry that her family got murdered and demands her own horse. It seems to me when Arya wants something, she usually gets want she wants or people die. Which we see in the following scene we the dynamic duo enters a tavern with the Kings men. Arya notices that one of the men killed one of her friends. One of the men also notices The Hound and approaches him with ale to show him respect. The man wants to know why The Hound is here and The Hound wants the man to get him more ale and chickens.

IMG_3301IMG_3304

The Hound is another character in which when he demands something, he usually gets it or people die. He do not get is ale or chicken, so you imagine what happened next. The Hound beats everyone down and we see Arya standing over one of the men who killed her friend with her own sword. She tells him verbatim what he told his friend before killing him. She calmly thrusts her own sword into the man. She finally looked happy for once and she finally got her horse.

IMG_3309

Once again I am super glad the Game of Thrones is back on television. I have not read the books so I don’t know what is about to happen in future episodes and almost all of the reviews I shall be totally drunk. Please share and talk shit if you want to because I won’t remember any of this.

The episode opens with a flashback at the prison with Hershel still with his head on his body. Hershel tries to transition Rick from a protector and killer to a farmer and creator in order to become a better role model for his son.

hershel the walking dead

I know why fans of TWD and Breaking Bad made the comparison with Walter White and Rick Grimes. Both have families they have to protect and they have to do horrible things to do so. Both Rick and WW are leaders with great minds and ideas. Both had similar character arcs where they had to change drastically in order to survive. So, the real question is who would be better in the Apocalypse. If you saw the episode tonight you made your decision with two words, Throat Rip.

The indie rock band, Daryl’s Marauders finally found Rick and Michonne. The Marauders want to take their revenge because Rick killed the bass player of their band. Then all of the sudden Daryl shows up and offers his life for Rick but that’s breaking their code. So, the marauders beat up on Daryl and another tries to rape Carl. That’s when I looked into Rick’s eyes and was like,

“It’s about to be fucking ON!”

twd-rick-aftermath

Rick loses his shit. He went Road House on the leader singer then goes Hannibal Lecter on a fatty. This is not farmer Rick not anymore; this is the old school, Sheriff of Pain and suffering. Rick is fucking back. The warrior and leader is back, our Alpha male. Carl is taking a back by this scene with his father and gets consoled by Michonne, which she tells Carl that you should never give up because you will get lost like she did when she killed her friends in the past.

In the beginning, we see Rick trying to show Michonne and Carl how to hunt animals by setting a trap through paths, which I find ironic because they finally find Terminus. The group finds the place but they are skeptical about the place, so they case the joint and the people. They meet the people of Terminus and it seems “Too Good to be True” which it is as Rick finds Hershel’s time watch. The group his trapped and lead to a train car with the letter “A”, which I think has different meaning sorta like the A-Team where they have a plan to escape. As the group gets into the train car they finally get reunited with the rest of the group. All of them are relieved they are back together but part of the group are feeling down and depressed because they are trapped. But not Rick as he says to bring confidence back to this family,

“They are screwing with the wrong people.”
