      The Zombedy...One movie, 2 story lines

      The Zombedy...Two movie shorts, 2 story lines

      The Zombedy...Web series

      The Zombedy...One Movie, one story line

      The Zombedy...Machinima series

      The Zombedy...Graphic Novel

      The Zombedy...Web Comic

      The Zombedy...Minecraft show


      The Zombedy.........What will it actually turn out to be in the future? I'm not sure. Over the last few years it has at one point been in pre-production or development as each of the listed above ideas. The Latest one was Minecraft show, it is still an Idea. HOW...to do it, I haven't a a clue.

      It was always one of the things I meant to finish, but it kept evolving, morphing into something else. Most of the people I had involved in the original project have either moved away or moved on. So a rebuilding phase, networking connections to talented people, as well as people with the proper equipment for filming, would definitely be in order.

      For those who have paid attention over the years, thank you. For those of you wanting to know more, I have this to say. The project is not dead, I still hope to make something out of it someday. When and if that does happen, I will post everywhere to get the word out.

      Again, thank you all for reading, asking questions, and keeping a dudes dream always in his mind.

      Previous journal entry 2 years ago.......

      That's depressing.

      Okay so now that life caught up with me finally, here's a quickie run down.

      -Finished semester #2 of culinary school, didn't go back
      ( I was teaching other students better than the instructor, I mean really?)
      -As mentioned in previous journal, met a good one, I'm engaged to her.
      -prior to getting engaged, we had a daughter, Ember Jaquelyn Smith, and she is nearly a year old already.
      -Job promotion+more money+more stress+Stress+STRESS=hating of said job ( might elaborate later)
      -Eating better ( I went to culinary, no more microwave meals and frozen pizza for me......well not entirely, what am I, a Nazi?)
      - Turned 30, eww ( "Your only as old as you look/ act" Said the person in the prime of their 20's)

      That, very well could sum it up. On to why I'm back.

      I'm struggling. With life and all its fun, new challenging ways. I've recently come to the conclusion, that I'm either really bored all the time or nothing amuses me anymore. In the past when I first became an active member here, I found these journals to be very therapeutic. I have my fiance to talk to, but its nice to write it all out and have problems stare right back at me. I missed this place, the best community online a nerd could ever hope for.

      Yet again, Single, and I had no way of avoiding it, have anyway of stopping it, or have anything to do with it. Sometimes people make choices, and they don't always work in your favor or include you. But hey, thats life.

      A bit Updatification

      Zombedy
      Rewrites, procrastination and more rewrites, and more procrastination................... deal with it, haha

      Single Life
      Well.... Its over :-) Its funny cause by looking at the date of my last journal, it was less than a week later that I wasn't single anymore, and the curve ball is, she isn't even on the list............... I know right! Well, her name is Cassie and I've known her for damn near 2 years. Long Story short, She dated one of my best friends and after 3 years an almost 2 year old son, they split up. She moved back home for almost a week, and then came back, My best friend moved in with her ex( also my friend) and when she came back she moved back in there as well. So I would go over to hang with my friends and she would be there as well, and that turned into just us hanging out after a few weeks. So I'm dating one of my best friends baby momma, if you wanna put it that way. It was awkward at first, and not approved by many of my close friends, but mostly everyone is cool with it, or slowly warming up to it. Its Nice and I can honestly say Ive never been happier.

      The only first party reviews I heard from friends were from hard core republicans who took offense to the movie, so I was taken off guard by how good it was. Half way through the movie I really felt like I was experiencing a complete world. Gonna have to see it in 3d again before it's gone.

      yeah the fact that you couldn't get away with anything ever was a problem...but he just think of it in the terms that it made you more cunning because you had to figure out how to get around it

    • lttlecaboose

      9 years ago

    • lttlecaboose

      9 years ago

    • lttlecaboose

      9 years ago

      hmmm then i will at least call it a feasible option...i would go for a costco or sam's club over walmart though...

    • lttlecaboose

      usually things like wal-marts are located in densely populated areas, why deal with all those zombies when you can just create a perimeter around a town and keep them out all together, plus after the energy stops, water stops supplies become limited, rather create a place in which there is potential for self sufficiency and use of natural resources.

    • lttlecaboose

      9 years ago

      My zombie plan is as soon as any threat of zombie attack is even thought to maybe be happening, stock up load up a car call my friend katie we meet at a already designated spot in a not very populated area of upper idaho from there we head over to her brother in mizzoula mountana, his freinds have the guns, ammo and skills necessary for survival blockade the town eventually stockade it. The low population density of the area means less liklihood of large zombie horde attacks mizzoulla is relativly small enough to be protected by a handful of people, and the people themeselves resource and hardy in nature. that's my zombie plan, of course there alternatives should the time frame become altered...i'm prepared though

    • lttlecaboose

      9 years ago

      lol i have been told they are my best feature...i quite like them too...but mostly because you know..they let me see things and all. Also i find it saddening you have only a 64% chance surviving the zombie apocalypse, you need to work on your zombie plan...there is no excuse not to be prepared!

    • lttlecaboose

      10 years ago

      lol so are you paying for all the work yourself or are you getting help?
      The film industry is really big here in NM so they have this fund available to people that are trying to make a low budget film...it's really kinda cool. A friend of mine is working on his movie and was eligible to have state funding. And wow that's a lot of work going though what you've written and doing rewrite. smiley7.gif I really wanna see how your series turns out :oP

    • thaicurry tacotacotaco

      10 years ago

      Wow that most definitely sounds awesome :o)
      And I will definitely read what you've written so far.
      I think you're ahead of the curve...most writers take years to write a script so for you to do it in 2 years is a pretty big accomplishment. :o)

    • thaicurry tacotacotaco

      10 years ago

      lol Well I'm sure it would have been a whole hell of a lot cheaper if I hadn't gotten highlights and low lights and had my hair dyed. And you're working on a zombie series? That's awesome!! So what is it like a movie or tv show...if you don't mind me asking.

    • thaicurry tacotacotaco

      10 years ago

      O.o so how much did you spend?
      The most expensive hair cut I ever got cost me $140 smiley7.gif

    • thaicurry tacotacotaco

      10 years ago

      So do you guys have parties often?
      I'd have a party just so i could have sandwiches the next day :oP

    • thaicurry tacotacotaco

      10 years ago

      Sounds like an awesome tradition.
      I totally need to come up with a tradition like that :o)

    • thaicurry tacotacotaco

      You had a sandwich delivered? Dang that is lazy. I'm totally jealous I had to go get my own food. :oP
