There's a Warning Sign on the Road Ahead, A Lot of People Sayin' We'd Be Better Off Dead
Meanwhile, back in Austin....
Thanks to Jerome Weeks for pointing this out via the Dallas coverage.
Hard to believe it has been under a year since I wrote a column about zombies. One month after it appeared, I returned to Austin for the first time since leaving it two decades ago. This comes close to a "plate of shrimp"-style convergence.
Another intersection in the "lattice of coincidences"....That clip ends with another great Repo Man line: "The more you drive, the less intelligent you are." Could it be that's what the prankster in Austin was thinking?
All part of the cosmic unconsciousness.....
UPDATE: Via the Little Professor, see also the forthcoming novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which "features the original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action....a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers--and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead."
