LIVING IN A ZOMBIE NATION
yeah, maybe it's the fortnight I've had - the flu, walking around in a fevered daze for a few days, this freakin' upcoming federal election, post grand final and nobody gives a fuck, a creative impasse wasting a week going around in circles with nothing achieved, stewing in me own dark cloud of bubbling nihilism, listening to Radiohead, listening to Deftones, listening to Nine Inch Nails on me headphones on the bus today (which obviously doesn't help.. hahahaha), seeing other people on the bus also with their headphones, all in their own little private cocoons, dont make eye contact, keep a safe distance away, get off the bus, watch the shambling masses going this way and that tapping SMS's into their phones to get the latest ring tones, ATMs, loud car stereos and bullet proof glass, John FUCKING Howard leaving voice messages on me phone, missed phone calls, email spam, low GI slow release energy, acoustic gigs, chill the fuck out, NOW YOU CAN PURCHASE MEDS ONLINE!!, another night in watching the idiot box, watching other people's non reality tv lives, post footy grand final and nobody gives a fuck, upcoming federal election, TRUST NO-ONE, WE'RE AAAALL SCREWED!!, terrorists around every street corner, duck and cover, don't make eye contact, hold back that urge to go beserk and kill everybody that moves, everyone's their own self medicated mental patients.. getting from A to B, making ends meet, hoping the interest rates dont rise, wondering why the petrol prices are higher AGAIN.. blah blah blah.. where's the remote? click..
or maybe it's those funny little indicators out there, all the little signs from out there, telling us that something is indeed gone fishy.. coz hey, monkey see / monkey do! - 28 DAYS LATER, DAWN OF THE DEAD, RESIDENT EVIL, RESIDENT EVIL 2, SHAUN OF THE DEAD, SIX FEET UNDER, TRU CALLING, CROSSING JORDON, LAW AND ORDER, CSI, CSI MIAMI, COLD CASE, WITHOUT A TRACE, FORENSICS INVESTIGATORS.. sifting thru the corpses, wondering who killed who, scene of the crime, murder weapons, bullet entry and exit wounds, formadehyde, removing the brain tissue for analysis.. lets face it kiddies.. we're living in a freakin' zombie nation.. the lights are on and nobody's home.. connected to the matrix and nobody cares.. bring out yer dead! bring out yer dead! everyone's a terrorist or everyone's a brain eating reanimate corpse.. fuckit.. that sounds like a LOT of people out there..
yeah.. sure, I'm in one of these go-nowhere un-hinged moods right now, so that's probably to blame.. (and hey, it's kinda fun.. coz.. maaan, the IDEAS I'm coming up with.. wahooooo!) - but seriously, wot the FUCK is going on out there? are we dead from the neck up? does anyone give a shit anymore? are we just treading water? is it all just about interest rates.. petrol prices and hoping some crazy militant domestic terrorist doesn't blow us the FUCK up next Tuesday?
y'know.. back in 1982.. MICHAEL JACKSON's "THRILLER".. (y'know.. back when he wuz cool.. and not a child rapist) remember that video? him all crazy and undead, doing silly dance moves with zombies?.. yeah.. we thought it wuz soooo clever back then.. now, EVERY FUCKING MUSIC VIDEO is some braindead talentless fuckwit zombie.. and his/her zombie underlings.. doing the moves.. watched by soul sucking voids on their tv's.. buying into it..
so many movies with CGI blue screen non-realities and wooden acting, reality tv with brain dead idiots, soul sucking vampire politicians, a hail of electronic gadgets to distract us.. where's the society, where's the freaking humanity gone?
yeah.. wow.. ok, it's probably just me..
here I am.. typing these keys.. flapping these words about..
and I'm just talking absolute rubbish..
(hahahha.. yeah, wot's new aye? ;)
or maybe, we ARE being overrun with zombies?
maybe it's too late?
too late to board up the windows.. load that shotgun.. fuel up the chainsaw.. fire up some popcorn, get the microwave ready for those gremlins.. and wait for the apocalypse to come to you?
maybe soon.. the dust will settle.. and I'll just be with the crazy talk..
or.. maybe it IS too late..
maybe they got YOU too..
no.. not YOU TOO..
yup..living in a zombie nation..
