The Zombie Apocalypse

Posted in Art, Humor, Society on February 1st, 2015

I think we actually be nearing the Zombie Apocalypse. No, I’m not expecting the streets to soon fill with the hungry undead – DNC functions excepted 😛 – any time soon or, likely, ever. I’m talking about the apocalypse of the zombie meme itself.

Girls In Their Undies vs. Zombies

I’m pretty sure that the existence and popularity of cartoonist massgrfx’s Girls In Their Undies vs. Zombies indicates that the Zombie Apocalypse meme is rotting away from the inside and that its end – Not with a bang but a groan – is fast approaching.

I mean, C’mon! There’s now the pop-culture term, “ZILFs” (Zombies I’d Like to Fuck) and iZombie exec producer Rob Thomas is comfortable taking full advantage of it.  Hence, while predicting the eschaton of a meme is inherently inaccurate, I think this one is done or nearly so.

Does Art Presage Life?

Posted in Art, Humor, Politics on September 10th, 2014

Oscar Wilde once wrote, “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life,” and this sentiment has been oft repeated since then. But, as a corollary to that, does Art presage Life?

Obama Headshot Graffiti
Does Art Presage Life?

Judging by this bit of graffiti I found, I’m will to bet that Obama sure as Hell hopes that doesn’t. Especially because graffiti – Oh! Excuse me – Street Art – is created by his core constituency and by constituencies that often side with him and the Democrats in general.
