Thought Growing Pains was crap, but this is a use of its theme song Preppy Preppers can get behind!
We are also fans of early John Stamos as “Blackie” on General Hospital…
…and late John Stamos as…hot doctor sexin’ Linda Cardinelli’s character, Sam…
…but we digress from the power of a theme tune to redefine a show.
Some dude got killed in Miami while buck nekkid and eating off another nekkid dude’s FACE. Did this happen near South Beach? Because if so, Preppy Preppers are in disbelief that these zombie weren’t a) dressed and b) WELL-DRESSED. [Actually, it shows signs of poor zombie containment since that’s a bridge between the (uninfected?) mainland and the (teeming with zombies) peninsula. Oh, yes, children: it is ON, like Donkey Kong (or Left 4 Dead 3).
Lots of video sneaky peeking NBC’s fall 2012 show, Revolution. It’s about what happens fifteen years after a massive, worldwide blackout. The prepper boards are full of discussions of various apocalyptic scenarios and this one they would call an “EMP” or an electro-magnetic pulse.
Selling points for us preppy preppers:
1. They use the symbol for power to spell REVOLUTIN. Super-cute. Preppies like symbols. You know, monograms and shit.
2. Giancarlo Esposito is reprising his badassery, as a (seeming) no-goodnick, Captain Tom Neville. You may recall is star turn in a bougie person’s favorite show…no, not The Wire! Breaking Bad, fool. Gustavo Fring had whip-appeal, so if this new role is a quarter as frightening as the Chicken Seller, NBC’s audiences are in for a helluva ride.
Does anyone really want a successful doomsday prophecy? For reals?
The end is nigh. You’ve had an inkling it would come.
So do you rush to the closet and grab your Seinfeldian European Carry-all?
Only if you want to risk standing around discussing your fancy-boyness and the odds that you will be sacrificed first to the zombies or Marauding Hoardes (MH).
Though we Preppy Preppers positively abhor the retrograde gender politics apocalyptic crisis brings out in some people (you don’t need a vagina to wash your own damn clothes down in the cement pond, Jethro!), we have to side with history on this one: men-folk you’re gonna need somewhere butch to keep your ammo.
A messenger bag only gives zombies or some other unprepared reprobate something to hold onto as they try to drag you down. We recommend Acton Treadways’s Lifestyle line of bandoliers (comes in leather or canvas) or these fine leather pouches that hang from your belt. Just pretend you’re preparing for Coachella or Burning Man.
