I'm feeling better, just a little low on energy. However, I wanted to get a post written, and well, discuss stuff. Like this crazy movie I watched last night, Meet the Hollowheads. It may very well be the only movie that's a post-apocalyptic comedy. I kid you not. Unfortunately I dozed off a couple of times, but I don't think I missed much. It really is a low budget stinker, but still somewhat entertaining if you have nothing else to do, or you're trying to fall asleep.
I was going to give you a little info about the movie, but apparently, Wikipedia is doing a "blackout" for 24 hours, in response to SOPA/PIPA. I guess they are hoping to get people involved. Oh well. Anyway, it's a really strange movie, that I think many of you fans of the post-apocalyptic movie genre may enjoy it.
Shock Cinema gives a good description of this movie. They describe it as "Pee Wee Herman's Blade Runner", but I'm not sure that's accurate.
|I'm betting John Glover wished he never starred in this "movie".|
If you read my last post you know I started playing Urban Dead, a web-based browser game. Well, I've been playing once a day, because it goes really quick. Anyway, my zombie character, Little Henry is no longer a zombie! Apparently people playing Necro-techs, one of the "character classes" can dezombify ( or whatever they call it ) zombies. Unfortunately since he started as a zombie he can't use his starting skill, which is called Vigor Mortis, which helps in hand-to-hand combat. The good thing is he didn't lose experience so after I cleared a 100 XP I bought a skill to help with hand to hand combat. As a human civilian he's managed to find two flare guns, and a clip of pistol ammo. Zombies can't search. He doesn't have a pistol, so finding one is a priority, then I'll buy the skill.
I am playing three characters, and one of them looted a museum. He ended up with a cubist sculpture, and a fire damaged painting. I lugged both of them around for about a day, and decided to leave them somewhere. They're only good for decorating safe houses, and they really added to my encumbrance. I put the fire damaged painting in a firehouse. I thought it was appropriate. I don't know where I will leave the cubist sculpture. Doctor Velasco has looted a number of books, which will occasionally give you experience points if you read them. I think I may drop a few soon. Private Gronch is armed to the teeth with a crowbar, fire axe, and of course his pistol, but he's low on ammo... I think I'm already getting bored with this game.
Anyone out there know of any good web-based browser games? Preferably free.

I guess I've done enough meandering blabbering. I'm going to go over my notes, and hopefully come up with something really good, or at least more entertaining for my next post.
