anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

Survival of the skillful
After the recent discussion on specific 'Irish' dance moves here it seems only fair that I share zombie survival tips from Max Brooks. Brooks wrote World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War which has self-contained stories from various people about the war between the human race and zombies. World War Z begins from the point of view of a Chinese doctor witnessing the first cases of a plague that seems to mysteriously resurrect the newly deceased as infectious cannibals. Within a year the world is full of packs of ravenous undead. Americans flee to refugee camps in Cuba whilst Europeans transform medieval castles and weapons for defense. Ireland and Cuba seem to be self sufficient due to their island status, however, these zombies can swim and frequently attack boats at sea and even submarines - no where is safe.

Below is a clip of Max Brooks speaking at a university in America. The clip does not really contain any crucial survival tips but gives you an impression of the passion Brooks has for his subject matter. My tip is to brush up on your d.i.y. making skills. Unfortunately education/music does not help when killing or protecting yourself from zombies.
