Wasteland Wednesday: Some post-apocalyptic school spirit

I haven't watched The Walking Dead in a while...I think it was once the Governor rose in prominence, and the show became more about people vs. people than people vs. zombies, that it lost me.  Some folks seem to think I should give it a shot again.  Maybe I will.

Not a video...for some reason having the video below as the first "image" was screwing things up in the sidebar...

Anyway of the things I do really like about the show is its Atlanta connection, and I recently found out that eight singers from one of my alma maters, Georgia State University, served as a choir in the second episode of Season 7.  They sang an arrangement of Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright."  It's a pretty cool scene...and I'm sure it would be even better if I knew what the hell was going on...

And while we're talking "Don't Think Twice...," I may as well post what may just be the best version of it I've ever heard.  Not that I've heard a lot of versions.  But...well, at least three, and this one is awesome...


  1. "...the show became more about people vs. people than people vs. zombies... it lost me."

    In that case, I definitely don't recommend resuming your viewing. There are like twenty human factions now, and the zombies are basically just used for punchlines at this point.

    1. Ah, thanks for the the tip! That's disappointing, actually, although I guess it's the sort of drama most people prefer. (It even sort of fits the big takeaway we're supposed to get from most Romero zombie fiction...that it's not about confronting undead monsters but the monsters within ourselves...but still, sometimes I just love a good battle through a mob of walkers...)
