Things I Love Thursday 7/29/10

***The Walking Dead tv series***

Comic Con 2010 trailer for The Walking Dead AMC tv series

I am SO EXCITED for this show. Come October I am kissing my ability to sleep soundly goodbye, since I am utterly terrified of the idea of a zombie apocalypse. I would rather fight the Wolfman, Dracula and Frankenstein all at once than have to fight thru a zombie apocalypse. I'm a HUGE fan of the comic series, I will devour each graphic novel in a single night when it comes out- it is the most realistic, heart-wrenching, dark, addictive comic I've read since Preacher. SO AMAZING. What's truly amazing about this series, is that eventually it doesn't so much become about zombies being the scary big bad of the series as much as the possibility of other humans our band of protagonists run into in their journey and what their motivations could be. Because really the only people who would survive an apocalypse are those that would be capable of only the worst possible things. At least you know the zombie's motivations. The humans could sidle up all nice and then boom- death and dismemberment. And to those of you who say it looks like 28 Days Later, the beginning is the only similarity, believe me. It really delves into the human condition. It's known as 'the zombie movie that doesn't end'.

***Tura Satana***

OMG, Tura needs no explanation on why I love her. Just watch this little snippet of an interview, you'll see.

What's funny is I've been familiar with Tura quotes from Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! since high school thanks to samples used in White Zombie albums. I only in the past couple years have familiarized myself with her sheer awesomeness. I even got a shirt from Pinup Girl Clothing that resembles the one she wore in Pussycat. Pair that shit with some black pants and I can make believe I'm Varla, her bad-ass alter ego.
I know I definitely want to draw a picture of Varla one day. Oh yes...

***The music from Bonk's Adventure***

Bonk rules. Released in 1990, it was on the Turbo Grafix 16. My brother and I were lucky enough to get a system at launch cuz my dad won a sweepstakes at Toys R Us and even luckier we had an awesome Mom n' Pop video game rental place in the neighborhood. (Video Game Exchange! Hollah!) So that summer we were the coolest kids on the block. I was *obsessed* with Bonk when I was 9, it was one of t he few games I was actually kinda decent at. If I remember correctly it might've even been the first game I ever beat.
