“The Omega Man”

This movie was an earlier and much campier version of “I Am Legend” starring Will Smith. While campy, it’s not a halfway bad movie….

Thoughts pondered

Would it really be that fun to be the last man on earth?

Who knows what we will lament.

The descendants of the ones who survive will be angry at the ones who burnt it all down. They will be consumed by jealously of the ones they hate. Ohhhhh, the irony!

It would be lonely to be the last man on earth.

Without hope most men give up. Children will give us hope and hope must remain.  I have yet to come across a Post-Apocalypse movie that doesn’t hit the “We must keep Hope alive” theme.

Thank you Phil Freedom for putting the following in the Conspire Community Calendar.

With our well known Achilles Heel, lack of water, Phoenix gets a bad rap when people are discussing post-Apocalyptic hang-out spots.  But, Phoenix has got a lot going for it.

First, you are not likely freeze to death. Here in the desert we forgot how a constant cold blast makes it hard to live.  When we are all riding motorcycles around in our underwear, the constant sun will be a blessing.

Second, a betting man might say the most likely Great Cataclysm is global warming.  It is also the most likely to be the slowest, even slower than an Al Gore lecture. California and the East Coast are screwed. The problem will be too much water.  I hate to get all Lex Luthor but I wouldn’t mind if California falls into the ocean. Personally, I hope the tropics move north and we have beach volley-ball all the way to Tucson.

This leads us to the third reason, the water issue. Hopefully, this won’t be the problem, see second reason. Yet if it is, I don’t think it will be as bad as people make. This city was founded on canals, and supported 20,000 people. Now, if the 4 million that are currently here, stay alive and here, then we are fucked.

Fourth, people with real skills will be hanging out on 5th street. We got people who can fix bikes, makes clothes and grow plants here. And three skills are better than none.
