Zombies in love

I wish I had the writing skill, and the inclination, to write a zombie love story. I mean seriously when was the last time you saw a good romantic zombie story? But what the hell do I know about writing zombie stories?

I never read them and I tend to not watch zombie movies all that often as they tend to be rather predictable. Zombie video games tend to annoy me since they never seem to give you enough ammo unless you are awesome at making head shot on the run. I just don't have that kind of hand-eye coordination.

Anyway, so I think a good zombie romance story would open the whole zombie genre to many new paths it could go down, instead of the worn out story lines that are out there. And just to be clear on this, I mean the zombie characters falling in love with each other or something. Not just a love story between humans that also happens to contain zombies.

I mean seriously, most of the movies seem to indicate that the primary driving factor of hunger left over from their days of being alive is what drives them. Now one thing that has always bothered me about that is why do they only want to feed on living humans? Why not on each other or, I don't know, maybe normal food?

But I'd have to say that the primary driving factor for a large chunk of humanity is actually mating. So why don't you ever see zombies following that driving factor of human live?

Anyway that's all I have to say tonight.

Soulless whelps of fire born
Under dark lit nights stalk
Careful, Traveller, be this night

Dancing lights in distance be
No friendly campsite for thee
Evil lurks in these woods

Beguiled and enchanted they lead astray
Many a good souls on which they prey
Into dangers unseen underfoot

Trapped in the land of Fae you be
A part of their endless revelry

Based loosely off Will-o'-the-wisp tales I suppose. I can't come up with a good title or ending line right now. As always comments welcome.

Much Ado About Nothing

Now I've said before that I doubt everything. I doubt the world around me and my perceptions of it. I doubt the people around and I even doubt myself and my own thoughts. I doubt all of existence. But I finally figured out something I couldn't doubt. I can't doubt nothing.

The very idea of nothing, no light, no matter, no energy, no time, no anything; this concept is so grand and so extreme and so utterly strange and incomprehensible really that I can't doubt that somewhere, some time, nothing exists.

I don't understand the full nature of nothing, as I believe I've discussed in a previous posting on this blog, but I have no doubt now that nothing actually exists. I once read that before Descartes came up with his famous "I think, therefore I am" argument he doubt everything in search of something in which he couldn't doubt and from which he could then build his philosophy around. I have no idea if that is true or not, but I have just found that which I can not doubt and from which I now have a foundation to build upon.

It is hard for me to say right now what I will build on this foundation of nothing but I nonetheless feel it is a sturdy foundation to build upon. I mean have established there is nothing one has everything to look forward to.
