Best Places to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

Welcome to this post on the best places to survive the zombie apocalypse. You can never have too many options available and since we are always waiting for the day to come, why not start prepping and planning for it today? I always wondered how it much feel to own a boat and sail the sea for a long time. Perhaps a boat is one of the safest places? Truly though, we cannot assume safety anywhere and in any form. All views are my own and might not reflect your own selection.

A Boat – This had to be the first one. A boat is in fact the safest place to be because you are surrounded by water, which means zombies cannot climb or swim to you like humans. The downside is that you need to stock up on supplies and be able to stop ashore when needed. I’m not talking about big boats like a cruise liner, although you might want to choose that. A small boat with sufficient capacity should be enough. Think about it for a second, everyone is dead, why not borrow a boat for the apocalypse?

Prison – Taken from the Walking Dead. The difference is that you won’t likely have to deal with massive chunks of infrastructure missing, which means a solid and fortified base. You can choose a particular wing, or opt for a smaller prison. It will have everything you need like an infirmary, canteen, bedrooms, clothes washing facilities and food storage. A smart choice if you are in a group, but I’d imagine lonely if you weren’t in a group.

Skyscraper – A massive two-hundred foot structure with thousands of rooms. You have the choice of an apartment skyscraper or offices. Whichever you choose, beware of using the elevator, if they work as there isn’t anyone to fix it should it break. Might as well take the penthouse. Just stock up before moving in and be sure you have some sort of portable power so you can binge watch The Walking Dead on loop. Oh yeah, if you are an adrenaline junkie, you could abseil.

With those limited yet effective options, what would you choose? Do you imagine somewhere safer, more comfortable? The prison is undoubtedly the most uncomfortable and I would say a penthouse likely the most comfortable. Unless you were in the navy, in which case a boat would suit you. On a side note, you could fish on the boat but such a limited diet is not healthy plus the risk that infection is in the fish or water. Please share your dirty secrets below and like, comment, follow and reblog. Peace.

Night of The Living Deb: Movie Review šŸ§Ÿ

Night of The Living Deb!

Synopsis:

After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. Pretty boy Ryan only knows it was a mistake and ushers her out the door into a full-scale zombie apocalypse.

A horror | zombie | apocalypse | comedy | romance. Que Shaun of the Dead female counterpart.

Released | 2015

Run time | 1 hour 25 mins (movie is 1hr,20)

Starring | Maria Thayer & Michael Cassidy

IMDB | 5.5/10 & Rotten Tomatoes | 88%

I took a chance as I saw this movie available on Prime Video. I wanted to watch it before but never had the chance. Overall, a good funny movie with some classic zombie tropes and unexpected yet hilarious twists. This is a short review!

So not your typical movie, it has the girl going after the boy, the better looking and rich boy who has a model looking ex-fiancƩ. After a one night stand it is the man who disregards the woman, which is somewhat expected, but she is looking for more. They are forced together after discovering what they believe are zombies.

The pair survive and the movie has good acting and dialogue. I thought it was a cheap made movie until it started. Then I realised it was actually worth it. Whoever wrote it well done, perfect chemistry between main characters. Gets somehow funnier when they arrive at his fathers house. Typical zombie fighting. She is a reporter and wants to be a news anchor.

What sets this movie apart is the realistic relationship between the couple, which develops as the movie progresses. I found it quite heartwarming, despite the humour which I found consistent. I was going to give 4 stars but am giving more because of a twist. It turns out his father was responsible for unleashing a parasite on the water supply, which cannot be transmitted through bites. The fact the movie addressed this was excellent, finally a film which acknowledges how poor a bite is at passing parasites! Anyway it is only those who drink the water who are infected.

Highlight is the easy viewing and comedy, not being over the top, dialogue being top notch and acting great. One scene involving a woman in lingerie bouncing on the bed which was mistaken for sex noises did have me red in the face. Maybe I’ve grown out of that sort of humour, although I found the reaction of the bloke downstairs hilarious (tearing a sandwich apart as he wanted to ‘bang her’ again). It’s smart and witty and not too complicated. We get the happy ever after. Touched my heart on more than one occasion because I am a big softie. Do I recommend this? Yes, I do, if you like zombie, comedy, romance or horror, then consider it. I think of this like a more feminine version of zombie movies simply because of the focus on the woman.

Rating: 4.8/5

Cheese Glorious Cheese… & Fries

Confession time. Not last night, but the night before I ate this chicken burger. It was called a ‘tower burger’ and consisted of chicken, hash brown, cheese, lettuce and tomatoe and onion, some BBQ sauce and two lovely buns – not the sesame buns, some variety of gourmet/posh buns. Anyway, I hadn’t slept and I needed to eat so I ordered. It came with really tasty crispy fries with peri peri powder, brilliant taste. I am supposed to be a vegan but since I hadn’t slept I felt like I should divulge myself. Anyway it was lovely and I considered it a treat. Was it filling? Yes it was. Did it taste nice? Hell yes. How did I feel after? I have no idea as half hour after eating I blacked out for 12 hours on the sofa, apparently You Only Live Twice {James Bond} had played on tv and at some point turned itself off, as the day after it said ‘watch again.’ Well I slept right through that.

The picture above is from the site I ordered from. They forget my drink even though I ordered a meal which included one. Not the end of the world, great takeaway. I feel slightly guilty though for giving in to the meaty temptation. I suffered bad heartburn and a ‘junk food hangover’ the next day. It reminded me why I went vegan to begin with!

It wouldn’t be a good post without a poem about said burger: I Ate Chicken, Ultimate Vegan Sinner

Not knowing how passion could exist without it
or how the eyelids could remain awake
the meaning of life slipped into a bun
I remember just how much it was 'yum-yum'
no pickled beetroot, no devastating soya
I just know, I was all out of juice

Anna and the Apocalypse! Movie Review

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6433880/

A cracking zombie comedy apocalypse musical! Among the funnier zombie movies over the last 20 years. Up there with the likes of Shaun of the Dead! Great British musical, with talented cast and effective cinematography. You want to watch this in the festive season, it puts you right in the mood.

Young British schoolgirl. Anna. A group of friends. A high school party. A zombie invasion. The music starts and you get singing. Really not what I expected. I was really glad that someone had the initiative to make a zombie musical, because it really works well. British cast make this even more special. Helps to make it feel like Christmas. I would also say it is similar to the video game Dead Rising 4, set during the holidays at the Willamette mall.

What this movie seems to pull off so well is the essence or theme and feel of close friends battling for their lives. I really enjoyed the scene at the bowling alley because it has an awesome set piece, with great lighting and just the right amount of comedy and singing to make it mega fun. Rated at 15, this movie is probably okay for children. Maybe I was an outcast, but when I watched Shaun of the Dead on its release I was not 15. The ratings board will always be there to protect the children from something that they see regularly on gaming consoles because their parents bought them it, or on billboards or in the street. Movies are the last thing to affect children. Anyway, 15 is more of a marker of a target audience.

What will a zombie comedy be without poor use of weapons and a bunch of egoist teens? Probably boring. The film had a run time of 1 hour 30 mins approx.

Not much else to say other than it is not too late to watch this movie. Watch it in April.

Forgot to add the rating! 4/5

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Survival

Saying the word to live another day, 
under your wing trying to find my way,
really, really hard fighting another day, 
very angry and sad, 
in this post-apocalyptic land, 
very sandy under my boots, 
and there you are, waiting for me to jump through hoops, 
living in this undead world.
