Let’s face it, kids are barely kids anymore. When they aren’t being protected by their helicopter parents, they are inside with games or on the computer and living otherwise awful ‘safe’ lives.
When I was a kid, some of the greatest times were playing “War” with the kids in the neighbourhood up at the park in our backyard. My parents didn’t let me have guns like Nerf or even a water gun, but a Hockey stick made for a very effective shotgun or sniper rifle if we used some imagination. Imagination was incredible! Pinecones would result in giant grenade explosions, a chain link fence was always electrified and would kill you if you touched it, and sometimes in winter, the exposed ground became lava. There was so much chaos… we didn’t ever adhere to the Geneva Convention. Our wars were about destroying the other team.
So when I saw this music video I was instantly transported back to those days…. and with cartoons this is pretty accurate to how I envisioned things when these battles would occur.
But I know a bunch of people will complain about this music video… they’ll say it’s sick or twisted or something… shush you helicopter parents! This is the mind of a 7-12 year old boy, back then anyway…. I dunno if kids still go out and play? Too concerned about stranger danger I guess.
Enjoy! Is Tropical By The Greeks

The reverse Rapture happened! Instead of people disappearing there’s now new ones… and this one has my name!
Today I was alerted to the fact that I’m not the only “Zach Bussey” in the world nor on Twitter. Now granted this other Zach Bussey is no where near as interesting as me with tweets like;
The above is his second tweet ever. Who exactly should be eating the shit? The exams? The profs maybe? He should #eatshit!
You know, people deal with this all the time I’m sure. A lot of people have common names that they share with other people… but let’s analyze my name for a second? Zach… first off it’s with an H. If anything a Zack Bussey would be fine with me! But with an H?! Ugh. Then ignoring that, BUSSEY. No one has this name. There’s like 60 of them in the World!
See I’m concerned that when I’m rich and famous this guy is going to be bottom feeding on my good name! What are the rules on promoting namicide?
The ultimate name stealer experience is Howard Stern… remember all the controversy with Howard K. Stern and how he was accused of killing Anna Nicole Smith? I don’t have time to deal with you killing Anna Nicole Smith Zach Bussey (1). So don’t do it!
Though, I bet this guy can’t fly in the States… pretty sure some of my tweets have put me on the No Fly List. Haha. Sorry dude. You’re on your own with that one. Change your name!
Ever have any problems with someone who had the same name as you? If so, what happened and how do you deal with it?

Tomorrow is the Rapture according to like 3 people and everyone’s just kinda gone along with it. I can’t wait for 2012 when that’s what the entire year will be. (By the way folks, there’s such a thing as a self fulfilling prophecy).
But I figured what better opportunity to watch some end of the world movies to get you right into the spirit! Oh, and quick funny story… when I was searching for images for this post, I found a lot of similar images to the “Rapture” as shown above… doesn’t it look suspiciously like the image from Skyline? Maybe Jesus is an alien wanting to drink our blood? Haha. Had to add SOME controversy to this right?
28 Days Later, does it get more ‘real’ than seeing the streets of London completely empty? Waking up to a silent world has to be the closest thing to a post-raptured world if we didn’t have Twitter to inform us of what’s going on.
Miracle Mile, You pickup an accidental phone call, who’s caller tells you there’s 70 minutes until nuclear missiles hit… you know before everyone else… But not for long. How will you react tomorrow at 6PM if the Rapture happens?
2012, When everything that could go wrong does… The Rapture and the buzz around it will pale in comparison to what the buzz will be for all of next year!
I Am Legend, Ugh, if Jesus Raptures everyone tomorrow except for me… I’m going to be slightly pissed. But slightly happier that I don’t need to deal with rabid zombie humans.
Knowing, Should we consider ourselves in the know? The Rapture is a religious event and all, so I kinda consider this one of the better religious ‘event’ movies. Is there a better ending?
Ever Since the World Ended, Documentary style and the first movie post apocalypse. An interesting take… though, I imagine the first movie post Rapture will be pretty good… I think it’s The Hangover Part 2.
Escape From LA, If the Rapture happens tomorrow, I’m planning on taking on Snake Plissken’s attitude. So world watch out, because Zach Bussey will not be taking any shit lol.
The Road, It doesn’t get much more grim and realistic than this… with a lot of the disaster footage taken from the Aftermath of Katrina. The book is better (I may have shed a tear), but this is pretty real. A world I don’t want to live in.

I’ve seen crazy stuff like this go down on the TTC before… It always seems worse in New York, but this is one of the reasons I hate the Subway. Clearly the guy has some mental issues…
The best part of the video isn’t even the guy licking his shoe… it’s the guy beside him, that’s the best reaction ever! He’s just pretending nothing is going on haha. If you get a seat on the subway, you accept any kind of insanity going on beside you.
