We succeeded in posting the video! Sadly, I think it's a little lackluster, both for Sam and myself. The good news is that we're done with this contest!
The final two winners are Tripp and Heather. Check out their respective websites for oodles of awesome. The winning comments are after the break.
TRIPP: You already send me your address, but tell me what size shirt you want!
I'll pray for you.
I have a story to tell you.
It starts in 1962 when the very first zombie is found and studied. Dr. Wade Davis travels all the way from the Harvard Ethno Biology Center and arrives in Haiti to meet Clairvius Narcisse. An insane man who had (apparently) been previously killed, unburied by an ancient witch and brought back to life. He had been force-fed hallucinogens… but when his master died, the drugs wore off and he wandered the lands for 16 years before finally stumbling upon a long forgotten sister who brought his "condition" to the attention of the real world.
Dr. Davis researched Clairvius for years, finally theorizing that zombies could indeed be created by man. Clairvius had been originally “killed” with the toxins of both the common toad, and the Japanese pufferfish. Then the corpse had to be buried for no more then eight hours (to avoid body decay) re-earthed and dosed carefully with a Datura-paste that removes your conscious mind from true reality, destroys your memory, wipes out all sense of self recognition and creates splatters of adrenaline throughout your whole body. These “zombies” are kept in a state of complete psychotic delirium and used as slaves, only regaining any sense of humanity whatsoever, if they escape the Datura dosing.
This story might not be real, or true, or have any historical relevance whatsoever…. But Datura is a real drug, and I bet we could find some toads and pufferfish around somewhere.
Krumbine…. We could MAKE a zombie!
(Of course that would make us evil slave-masters with twisted god complex's.... so we wont... but we COULD!)
