Undead Sunday: Feeling safe and secure in the knowledge that zombies exist purely in the realm of fiction? Prepare to have that sense of security shattered!
In the aftermath of the worldwide zombie outbreak, lastdaysjournal.com will be your last connection to humanity. If zombie movies have taught us anything, it's that the few people left alive will have to band together in order to survive. These small groups of people will be cut off from the rest of the world, without even knowing if they are the very last of their kind. Fortunately, an online community has been created to prevent this: Last Days Journal. It's "...sole purpose is to record the name, location and current status of each and every survivor we can find." (excerpt from lastdaysjournal.com homepage)
"...in the face of the greatest enemy we have ever known, it will take – as so many of us have discovered – a new way of thinking, a new way of living with one another and for one another. That’s why we built this site and why we need you to register right away. Tell us where you are and what kind of help you might need. Put up as much information as you can: pictures, videos or audio clips if you have them and we’ll get through this together" (excerpt from lastdaysjournal.com homepage)
I know what you're thinking; When exactly did this worldwide zombie outbreak happen, and why wasn't I informed? Good question. I'd be wondering the same thing. Ok, fine. If you want to get technical about it, the website is pure fiction. We all agree that a worldwide zombie apocalypse is inevitable though. There have been pockets of zombie activity all over the world for years now, but most people blatantly ignore the ugly truth. It's just a matter of time before all of these strolling zombies outstroll us. Your only hope is to be one of the lucky survivors. But, how many of us are prepared to survive?
In the meantime though, practice makes perfect. I doubt there's a better place to practice your zombie surviving skills than lastdaysjournal.com "– a fictional world in which people create alter egos that have survived this apocalypse and struggle to stay alive. users build stories around their characters and may interact if they like with the alter egos of other people all around the world. that is all that lastdaysjournal.com is – part alternate reality game (or ARG), part blogging/social-networking site."
