I know for now you only look ahead

I'm still posting photographs taken at Korkeasaari Zoo.

I don't know why but I have been reading zombie-themed books recently. Some of the books are rather thought-provoking, painting visions of the world ending as we know it, civilization collapsing and each and everyone needing to fight to stay alive. And some of the books seem to have a humorous streak in them, offering tongue-in-cheek commentary on various survivalist strategies.

One of the more interesting books is World War Z by Max Brooks, which has been made into a movie with the same name. But there is nothing else common with the movie and the book, as illustrated at The Oatmeal. Which in itself is rather revealing. All the social commentary in the book is left out, resulting in a movie in which Brad Pitt shoots a lot of stuff. We have a brain-dead movie culture.
