I’m not a superstitious zombie, but a cautious one. We’ve lived a long, prosperous, but equally damaging life. Some clocks have already ticked past midnight on December 21st, a day that has been sensationalized by the media, and taken far out of proportions for the last six or seven years. Why are we so obsessed with the end of days?
Apocalypse is erotic to a generation without analog life. The generation of zombies that sit inside every day connecting through buffers yearn for the day that they can have an opportunity to be forced into a brave new world. We know… We are these zombies.
We fantasize and prepare for the day that civilization crumbles, because we want the opportunity to start anew. We want to return to a life of necessities, free from the restraints and vices of todays society. Our bane is that we cannot live this analog lifestyle without a major event — so, we create many. We create zombie apocalypse scenarios and movies. We create “2012” with John Cusack… And everybody goes to watch them.
