Is this an American thing that I'm missing? I thought Cheetos were just crunchy?
To indulge my love of the supernatural, horror and gothic, and to connect with all the far-flung misfits, like me, who share the same interests.
Toast and Vegemite (Australia's national breakfast!)
I swear constantly, but I control myself when appropriate.
Other. I watched 'Hammer Horrors' with my Dad when I was small, so I'd have to say Dracula, for sentimental reasons.
Where do I start? Chocolate, coffee, wine, Duran Duran, and watching 'Transformers' with my husband and son, to name just a handful.
I love it all! I have dominion over my own perfect, little bubble-world. (Mwah ha ha!)
'Rise Again', by Ben Tripp. It's a great zombie apocalypse novel.
Sorry, I don't like jelly beans. Chocolate is my obsession.
All of the above, but (old school/pre-Twilight) vampires were my first horror-love.
I love David Bowie, '70s and '80s music, and I'm also addicted to soundtracks from my favourite t.v. shows and movies because the music lets you relive the experience through sense-memory.
Red and Black
Chocolate, of course!
Hmmm... although I love my movies, I would have to say that television has been more life-changing because I always get so emotionally invested in my favourite shows. From 'I Dream of Jeannie', 'Bewitched', and 'The Addams Family', when I was little, through to 'The X-Files', 'Buffy', 'Supernatural', and 'The Walking Dead', television has had a huge impact on me.
I've actually (sadly) given this quite a bit of thought. I'm very partial to the idea of a 'Huntress' (Justice League Unlimited) style crossbow. A shot through the head would be lethal and quiet, unlike gunfire which might attract more zombies. Plus, it's cleaner, so less chance of infection through blood splatter. But most importantly, a crossbow is just cool!
Damned if you do and damned if you don't!
1. What would be the first items on your looting shopping list?
2. Would you set up a fortified base camp or get a motor-home and stay on the move?
Well I'll answer both of your questions. Truthfully me and my family actually have an entire end of the world evacuation and procedure. I'll let you in on it if it will humor you all... yes? Okay then. (No we're not insane, but we thought it would be fun and teach our kids to be prepared for anything)
Since we are in the near vicinity of Costco, that would be our hide out till the next plan of action needs to be taken. (Thankfully we have connections and ways to access all entries. I know, everyone reading this is thinking of every possible bad outcome, but the truth is, there are no windows, no outside accessible fire escapes and doors have reinforcement gates and concrete pillars behind that that lock into place. We realized this beauty during a lock down.
Plus Costco of course has a good amount of food so I guess looting wouldn't be necessary. Costco also has everything from hunting gear, to Vitamins which means food is sustainable for a longer period of time and there are also weapons at hand. We have more ideas than just the ax case I made for Cian. I'll have to do a weapons around the house post soon. Everything from movies, like shaun of the dead, to common knowledge. (And yes Emma we have a crossbow too :)
Sorry that was a longer answer than I thought. Back to Emma. One of the best things about this bloggerverse and really just the internet is that people from all over the world can connect with each other and share their like interests, like Emma who is from Australia! Not only is Little Gothic Horrors a great place to find anything Goth or horror related, but your author is just so darn likable. While checking out her profile I couldn't help but read through it saying, "Ooo I really like that too, and that, and that!"
I enjoy all the Delightfully Dark Quotes from horror legends such as Bella Lugosi or just well-knowns such as Albert Einstein. She also has featured Etsy shops under her entitled Delightfully Dark finds which is always a delightful little gothic taste of each shop! Even the look of Little Gothic Horrors is so appealing with it's monochromatic theme and clean lines.
I greatly suggest you check out Little Gothic Horrors if you haven't already. You'll love getting to know Emma and her wicked site.
