Happy Apokalyptica

We're contemplating doing some festivities on the 1st, a holiday I'm christening Apokalyptica ... because "The World Still Exists Day" is plain too long.

Apokalyptica is a joyous event wherein one takes the time to remind their friends and loved ones about the fragile nature of our existence. It is best celebrated early in the new year with many events designed to illustrate this fact. Godzilla movies, zombie flicks, Resident Evil games ... heck in some ways even Katamari would pass as at least an appetizer.

We watched the director's cut of Donnie Darko last night as a kind of Apokalyptica moment. If you haven't seen it, I'd also recommend the recent War of the Worlds remake for your Apokalyptica party. Tom Cruise kinda sucks in it, but Spielberg still did a tremendous job. Also potentially on the docket is breaking out DOOM: The Board Game on Sunday and see who can survive Mars.

At any rate, this weekend looks busy, so this is probably my last pre-Apokalyptica post. I may get up early and sign into Guild Wars tomorrow morning if anyone wants to try and catch me there. I'll also be trying catch up to my brother on Mario Kart.

I'll be on GW tomorrow morning. I don't think I'll be getting one Wintersday quest done, let alone both, seeing as how I only just made it to Lion's Arch the other day. So my goal is to kill enough monsters to find Candy Cane shards, so I can get my Gingerbread Focus Item. It's a silly goal, but it's still a goal.

Undead was a pretty good zombie film. Aussie, and meant to be a bit comedic.

I've almost picked up Undead a couple of times, will have to give it a try.

I really must play GW at a time when I'm not just goofing off though :) Otherwise I might never get to the end.

Right now, though, I've got some bizarre wintertime allergy. Apokalyptica might be a little subdued if I'm under the weather.
