GUYS GUYS GUYS! [personal profile] kuwdora talked me into going to see a zombie movie tonight and it was the best zombie movie that I have ever seen! Not that I have a wide range of experience with zombie movies but HOMG UH-MAZING.

I used up all my clever quips about the movie in conversation with [twitter.com profile] paperpenguin so I have cleaned up the conversation for you below.

(As I tweeted: "Best thing about The Dead? Probably intell. honesty. Expecting anything but White Guy Survives Zombie Apocalypse Africa is your own fault.")

imperialism! Africa as metaphor! zombies as balancing force of nature! competence porn! raw masculinity! manpaiiiin! )
epershand: Adams and Jefferson, being slashy. (Damn you Mr. Adams)
[for the portion of my flist who are within the SF Bay Area]

Many of you know that my chorus has a concert coming up, but many of you do not.

J.S. Bach, the well-known zombie composer.

The Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco Presents: The Music of Dead White Men. The concert is Friday and Saturday, Oct 22-23, at 8 pm.

It's going to be an unusual concert for us. We have had the opportunity to prepare for this concert under the baton of the wonderfully talented, Cole Thomason-Redus. Cole is a gifted singer, composer, arranger, and conductor, and he has whipped us into shape with repertoire that is not usually within our scope: Bach, Bizet, Brahms, Sullivan, and Barber.

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets. Tickets are $15-30 sliding scale/general admission.

We're at a new location this year in Polk Gulch: the (recently built) First Congregational Church, Polk St. at Bush. If you've never been there, it's a fully accessible space with comfortable seating that is just the right size for our show. There are lots of dinner places right around there, and a city parking garage across the street, as well as lots of Muni and bike accessibility.
epershand: "There is no pretense here. I happen to be genuinely self-absorbed and deeply shallow." (Genuine and deep)
[livejournal.com profile] eccentric_hat reminded me that I have forgotten to tell the internet about how psalm 27 is totally about fighting zombies.

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.

11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.


David is definitely beginning to win out over Enoch as my favorite person in the Bible.
