The Walking Dead S7 Ep3 9 Deuce Deuce – Who Are You? edition
Welcome to this week’s installment of The Walking Dead 9 Deuce. This week we will be discussing the third episode of season 7 entitled “The Cell”. I know that this week has been particularly crazy, and all I can say is that we just need to unite together after what happened on Tuesday. I mean there he was, Baron Corbin, the best young big man on the WWE roster, and he got taken out by a luchadore. It’s unthinkable, but if we unite, we will make it through this, while listening to Easy Street. This week, we are joined by 2 new people, and we are missing one. So I would like to welcome Kristi and Brian to the group, and let miss Bitty know that we miss her insight. Thank you to Briana, Raylene, Cece, Jess, Eric, Melanie, Kristi, Bob, and Brian for their contributions and taking the time to do this. Yeah, there are 2 more questions, deal with it. Enjoy! This blog was written while listening to “Easy Street” on repeat for over an hour. By the way, I keep forgetting to post these pics that Bitty sent me, and I need to post them now before I forget, like always.
- Were you disappointed that we didn’t get to hear the Who’s the Boss song at the beginning of the episode?
Briana: Not even a little!
Raylene: I would have liked to hear the theme song and part of the episode
Cece: No. Plain and simple.
Jess: Easy street made up for it.
Eric: Kind of…it was a great precursor to an insight to Negan’s Saviors. (Kent: It was definitely a precursor in many ways. Good catch!)
Melanie: What’s Who’s the Boss? (Kent: Angela is the boss. I tried finding a clip from Family Guy season 2 episode 6, but I couldn’t.)
Kristi: Absolutely! I was excited when I saw the beginning of it. Then, pure disappointment!
Bob: I loathed that show, so i was somewhat relieved… BUT the music was playing in my HEAD!
Kent: Of course! I dug that show, plus Alyssa Milano, who was probably a lot of boys first crush without even understanding why. Solid theme song too.But it works in a lot of subtle ways. I’m sure some of you connected the easy connection as in Negan is the boss in this situation, but to dig deeper, consider the lyrics, and you see that it is a brand new life around the bend.
There’s a time for love and a time for living.
You take a chance and face the wind.
An open road and a road that’s hidden
A brand new life around the bend.
There were times when I lost a dream or two.
Found the trail, and at the end was you.
There’s a path you take and a path untaken
The choice is up to you my friend.
Nights are long but you might awaken
To a brand new life,
Brand new life,
Brand new life around the bend.
- Did you like the song “Easy Street” or were you irritated by it by the end of the episode? Overall, did you enjoy the music choices for the week with Roy Orbison’s “Crying” and the opening song by The Jam called “Town Called Malice”?
Briana: I thought the music for this episode was extremely fitting for what it was meant. Meaning, yes my ears were bleeding by the end!
Raylene: Easy street did not annoy me because it was played for short bursts throughout the episode. I would’ve smashed my tv if we heard it all through the episode. To nobody’s surprise I didn’t even realize a song was playing now that I have watched the video on you tube which is great I believe the song was a good choice for the opening. (Kent: Settle down Rageasaurus Rex. No need for smashing TV’s….yet.)
Cece: Yes. I thought the music added so much to the episode.
Jess: It’s still stuck in my head. I think the music choices were perfect. (Kent: The songs stayed with me too, for days, and now I play it on repeat while I’m sleeping in hopes of irritating my neighbors above me.)
Eric: I didn’t really pay attention to it.
Melanie: I didn’t mind the music, therefore I probably enjoyed it.
Kristi: I was over East Street before the beginning credits ended.
Bob: I did not get irritated by “Easy Street” – I did agree with its purpose and I thought I was going a bit mad at the end there… “Crying” also was perfectly selected – I will deny feeling what Daryl was feeling. (Kent: I think Crying got overlooked by a lot of people after hearing Easy Street so much, but that may have been the scene of the episode. Very important!)
Brian: I had a difficult time determining if it was just the noise or torture sound. The other music choices seemed appropriate.
Kent: I have been listening to it everyday since the episode aired. Yes, I loved it. I should also mention that there is a great version of the song Crying in a film called Mulholland Dr, and if you have never seen it, it’s a really great flick, plus Naomi Watts is great.The song is called LLorando and is sung in Spanish, but it’s one of the most beautiful performers I have ever seen.
- Do you think that Dwight is a bad guy?
Briana: After seeing this side of him, no. I think he’s a terrible decision maker but I don’t think he’s a bad guy. Personally, if I’d been his wife or him, I would have kept running or let the sister marry Negan. Like that situation irritates me. Negan says women have to say yes to Dwight but it’s alright for Negan to manipulate the women to his benefit. But I digress. The point I’m making is, he seems to be the kind of guy who always makes the wrong choice because he’s actually a coward.
Raylene: I don’t think Dwight was a bad guy when all this started but once he found Negan, choices had to be made for him and his family’s survival. Now he’s doing things that weighs heavily on him. I think we will see that with further character development
Cece: No. I think he is a little conflicted, but I still see emotion in him.
Jess: No, I think he’s a sissy though.
Eric: No, he is a victim of Negan’s fucked up ways.
Melanie: He is a victim who is very afraid. Very very sad!
Kristi: I think Dwight is a dumbass. I think he is scared and just doing what he thinks he needs to do to survive. I do not think he is a badass or a bad guy. I think he is lost and will eventually give his life for the greater good.
Bob: Nope, unless you’re on Negan’s side.
Brian: No Dwight is just trying to survive in the world he now knows. He is smart enough to place himself in a position of power but tries to keep himself on the good side of the lower minions.
Kent: He’s not a good guy, he’s not a bad guy, he’s just THE guy. (Probably nobody reading this watches wrestling and didn’t get the reference.) No, definitely not a bad guy. You do what you need in order to survive. It’s like moving up a position or 2 at work and now having more power than people that you used to work with. You try to find that balance between pleasing your current superior while knowing where you came from. I think he’s smarter than most would give him credit for, BUT in all fairness, I am basing this off of the totality of the character that I know, and even though I still agree with his TV character’s action, I may not be totally unbiased.
- Would you rather work for points or to be a henchman like Dwight?
Briana: Of course being a henchman. It would still suck because, like I feel Dwight is, I wouldn’t want to have to hurt people who don’t deserve it. But living like the point earners is living like a prisoner. Get or get got right? Haha! (Kent: All those suckas gon’ get got. I hate it when I use the term deserve in my questions because deserve is sort of a question of morality, and given the circumstances, everybody is right and everybody is wrong, except Gregory, he is just wrong.)
Raylene: I would rather be a henchmen even though I’ll have to do things I don’t agree with but it’s better than being on the fence
Cece: Henchman like Dwight. Although, I know I wouldn’t personally last long with Negan.
Jess: Obviously a henchman cause that would mean I would get to interact with Negan on a day to day basis.
Melanie: I am sure as a lady in the Saviors I would have neither of those options. (Kent: You can still work for points, and I’m willing to bet, even become a henchman, no matter your sex. Granted, being a wife is less work physically, but comes with it’s own price. I think he only goes for the girls that he finds “super hot” and other women aren’t even given the opportunity to be a wife. I would guess the girl playing the game with Dwight in the opening is one such female. Just speculation.)
Bob: Again, no way – this is why i would rather live in the Kingdom.. All you who picked to live with Negan – yeah, go enjoy that. I will grant this though – that at least with Negan, you are buying what you see – with the Kingdom, there is too much smoke and mirrors. (Kent: Only Bitty and I chose The Sanctuary. Everybody else agreed with you on The Kingdom. I like your point about the smoke and mirrors. I think the term blissfully ignorant may apply to members of The Kingdom, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. They thing they have a good set up. The November issue of the comic shows just how fragile one of the communities is and how easy it is to quintessentially destroy what is perceived to be a stronghold of sorts.)
Brian: I would prefer the henchman lifestyle. You can use your position to establish power and the fear of your boss as a motivator over others to control the situations and ensure you come out on top. (Kent: Control, I think that is the key word. You are at a point where you have much more control over your destiny. You are trusted to go on longer runs, and you know enough to know what you can get away with. Very important.)
Kent: Henchman as I want to cut in line and get bread. That’s just a fat guy response. I feel at this point, if you have survived that long, you have done some morally questionable things to get to that point. So you may as well keep on keeping on. I guess this was a bad question. I figured that somebody wouldn’t want the pressures associated with being a henchman and making even more difficult decisions. In reality, there are way more working for points than there are henchmen. I guess this was a wasted question. My bad.
- Were you disappointed that they didn’t show the flashback of Dwight getting the iron?
Briana: A little bit, yeah! I mean we’ve seen every gruesome detail of our beloved characters! Why not let us see that too! (Kent: I love your logic, and I agree!)
Raylene: I would like to know if he did it to himself or if Negan did it or was Negan making Sherry watch when it was happening. (Kent: In issue 106, when ____ gets the iron, his woman appears to have to watch. We are really close to that in the show, so I don’t want to ruin anything. When ___ sneaks away from Alexandria, we should be close to seeing it.)
Cece: Yeah. That would have been pretty epic to see. (Kent: While I don’t typically like the word epic, in this particular case, it would have been appropriate. I really wanted to see it.)
Jess: Honestly I couldn’t even remember what happened to Dwight’s face before this episode. I’m glad I finally know at least but a flashback would’ve been satisfying. (Kent: I don’t believe it had been touched upon prior to this episode. Comic fans were aware, and then people who saw the iron in the credits picked up on it. That was it.)
Eric: Yes. It seems to be a pretty important part. (Kent: In a way, it’s the final straw for Dwight, the final stage of his evolution from when we first met him into the man we now know. With Dwight being such an important character, he deserved his scene.)
Melanie: No and yuck.
Kristi: Yes!!! I wanted to see more about his journey but I have a feeling we will get a Morgan type, Dwight episode soon. (Kent: I hadn’t considered Dwight getting his own story, but that would be one of the better characters to see. Obviously, Negan’s would be the coolest, but they are still just revealing bits and pieces now in the comics as to Negan’s backstory. I hope for that episode in season 9 episode 2.)
Bob: Hahaha. No.
Brian: I believe that is coming once has to do it again to someone else. Possible in a scene where Dwight explains the punishment to another. (Kent: In my mind, I picture this character, we’ll call him Kebert Xela, and he is due to get the iron, and as it is being set up, we see brief flashbacks from Dwight’s point of view while it happened, like seeing it get heated up, then perhaps a Negan speech, and looking into Sherry’s eyes, then the blinding pain, and maybe him walking away.)
Kent: I would have really liked to have seen it. Even in the opening credits, they show and iron by the flames, so I thought that was a dead giveaway that we would see it. Don’t fret as there is plenty of opportunity to see it happen with another character who we may not know yet.
- Did Sherry make the right decision to marry Negan? Do you think that Sherry will still be alive when season 7 is finished?
Briana: For the situation they were in, yes. I wouldn’t be able to let my husband die either (on the other hand if it were his choice there’s no way my husband would have gone along with that but he’s not Dwight). Back to Dwight being a coward, she had to make a choice that would save them both and it was very brave and selfless of her to make that choice. I’m going with no on her being alive at the end. She seems as if she’s starting to break and her charade won’t last too much longer.
Raylene: Well Sherry was trying to save Dwight’s life and hers. I think that she’ll be alive and have some kind of doings with Daryl.
Cece: She gave in too easily, I think. She should have taken the bat for someone she loved. And no, I think she will be taken out by then. (Kent: Wow, that is some “hard pipe hittin n!**a” shit right there. I’m quoting Pulp Fiction, so everybody settle down.)
Jess: No, she’s weak and weak people always die first right? (Kent: This comment is one of the comments I didn’t know how I wanted to respond to. Congratulations! In theory, weak people tend not to survive, but smart people who happen to be weak can survive. Now, if we are taking into consideration that this is horror based mythology shit, THEN we have an issue because horror movie makers have developed this trend to often have some of, if not the most useless female be the lone survivor of a film. By useless, I mean, she brings very little to the table, not strong, not smart, not crafty. Not sneaky, usually a liability to the group, and tends to cry too much and give away her location. Yet they are surviving in one of the newer fads in horror. I know this is way deeper than anything that you probably intended, but I just watched 100 horror movies last month, so I’ve seen things.)
Eric: Yes, she kept herself and her husband alive. She will be dead. (Kent: In a weird way, I almost feel that she is too pretty to keep living in this world. She is pretty, but her attire, she looks clean, and all of that, it just can’t last damnit!)
Melanie: Yes, she kept herself and her husband alive. No, she will get bitten trying to save Daryl. (Kent: I absolutely love the idea of her getting bitten because I did predict that a name character would get bitten this season, so you have my support with this!)
Bob: Well, Yes. Although I am beginning to see there is no choice in regards to making any decisions when Negan is involved. (Kent: I have wondered, if say the Saviors find a 3 man group, and they naturally want all of their stuff. The group gives up all of their stuff, and then somebody gets their head caved in. After that, are you given options? The only example that we can really base it off of is when Daryl, Abe, and Sasha first met with them on the road. Abe wasn’t going to play ball anyway, and since it’s the group we know, things could be handled differently. Just a curiousity.)
Brian: Again, Sherry is living the life she has to, in order to survive. I believe that unless she crosses and disobeys the current lord, she will be fine. Plus, how bad could life be being the old lady of the biggest bad ass in the land (ask Bits….it’s a good position to be in). (Kent: I don’t feel that it’s appropriate to ask her about positions. She has her job openings at the YC, that’s her business. I don’t even like candles. Haha.)
Kent: Yeah, of course she made the right choice. It’s just sex. Considering the stuff that you have to do to survive up to that point, I think getting plowed by Negan once a week seems totally reasonable to not have to work and get to stay pretty. I think that she will be dead by season’s end, and that will be what causes Dwight to follow his comic character’s arc without giving anything away.
- What did Daryl hope to accomplish when he snuck out?
Briana: Who the hell knows with him! I was yelling at the tv the whole time he was sneaking around because he didn’t know the compound very well, didn’t know the schedules of the people around him and had all around no clue what he was doing. Plus it was obvious that it was a trap! It was a stupid move! But I think he probably figured he had a 50/50 shot and that was better than his current situation.(Kent: I liked that you thought ahead about schedules, because this strikes me as a place that runs like clockwork.)
Raylene: I think Daryl wanted to get out and get back to Rick perhaps killing some of the Saviors in the process
Cece: I think his ideal goal was just to get the hell out, but, I could tell he was drooling about getting one of those motorcycles. (Kent: If he ever gets out, Aaron will hook him up, with a bike I mean.)
Jess: He was probably looking for the nearest toilet after eating all of that Alpo. (Kent: Congrats, you are the only person that went that route, and yet, that couldn’t have sat well.)
Eric: He was going to try to escape.
Melanie: Escape in typical Daryl fashion.
Bob: Perhaps a one man escape similar to Terminus. I think it was more to show that Daryl isn’t going to lay down and that he is still against his imprisonment. He is making a point. A point that Negan seems to be familiar with. (Kent: If we consider this to potentially be a test, do you think Negan wanted Daryl to try to escape? I’m guessing yes, but now I wish I had asked this.)
Brian: Daryl was looking to reunite with the other members of his roving horde of murders, with hopes of destroying another community that they stumbled upon. Rick and crew is the ISIS of the apocalypse. They have 0 regard for the other established communities. They loot and murder at will and selfishly ensure their future without caring about others. (Kent: Bravo, you are the first person that has compared the group to ISIS, so that is something. Not that I necessarily disagree, but you know that some people here would disagree. So this is a great opportunity to scroll to the bottom of this, and leave a comment. If it asks you for an email, use a fake one if you want. I don’t ever do anything with emails.)
Kent: He clearly wasn’t thinking straight. It was an obvious trap to finally have a new guy feed you and he just so happens to leave it unlocked. This goes much deeper in my mind, so I have dwelled on this. If he had hoped to escape, does he really think anybody in Alexandria would be able to protect him if he did make it there? He wouldn’t have made it back as he doesn’t know the roads too well yet, and Negan has outposts all over. So then I wonder, maybe this was just him thinking, fuck it, I either go out in a blaze of glory, or I rot in the cell, so he took his chance knowing that his odds were shit.
- How do you feel about Gordon’s comments, specifically the part about what if everybody just ganged up on Negan to overthrow him? Would that result in a better quality of life for The Saviors in particular?
Briana: Part of me thinks anarchy never works. The reason the group works so well is because of the fear Negan promotes within the people around him. So it’s hard to say if they would have a better life. But I’m thinking of the henchmen mostly. For the point earners, yes it would definitely be a better life to be free of Negans reign. So it really more depends on which group. The henchmen are living the dream but are causing a lot of pain for pretty much everyone around them.
Raylene: That may have worked if you could get everyone on board to take over the compound but there will always be some that are loyal and enjoy this way of life.
Cece: I think they could potentially be better people without Negan. He is obviously selfish and only cares about himself.
Jess: I’m sure it would be a little chaotic but I think something like that is going to happen in the long run.
Eric: Yes because they wouldn’t have Negan to fear anymore.
Melanie: No, they would be lost without Negan.
Kristi: I think Negan will eventually be taken down. I think there will still be a great separation. Im hopeful that they will eventually come together but in the history of the group, I don’t think it will be an easy transition.
Bob: Nah, just overthrowing Negan will result in another Tyrant. The whole establishment would need to be destroyed for an effective change. Incidentally, I have now added “Negan” to my dictionary so I stop getting a spellcheck issue.
Brian: If/when Negan is overthrown, the Saviors will be worse off. Negan is the leader and the force that keeps them alive and fed. Once he is gone, the Saviors will be leaderless and the infighting will ensue. He is the tyrant that puts people in the their place and ensures that rules are followed and order is kept.
Kent: In my head, I wonder, if you tell Negan that there is a renegade group trying to overthrow you from within, I question if Negan rewards your loyalty or will fuck you over because he will consider you a snitch? Negan has a weird code of ethics. They are screwed both ways, but it would end up just being a pissing match among the henchmen about who gets to rule, and chaos and destruction would reign supreme and they could easily lose their shelter, like what happened at the prison with Rick and The Governor. With Negan, at least there is order and you know your role.In a case like this, I feel that if he were overthrown, it would be back to scavenging and none of the 3 territories would take you in because of your past. Once you’re with Negan, you’re stuck with Negan, for better or worse. If he’s gone, history shows that you are trading one problem in for another, the whole grass isn’t always greener theory. I didn’t want to comment on anybody’s because I found them all very interesting.
- In the preview for next week, we see Michonne grab a gun, put it in a duffel bag, and Rick watches her leave, but nothing is said. What do you think that Michonne is going to do?
Briana: Man this is a really tough one. I hadn’t really given it much thought before now. But my best guess is the obvious one. She’s going after Negan in some way. Maybe she’s going around to the other factions to see about banning together. Maybe she’s going to try some recon to find a way to save Daryl.
Raylene: I think Michonne is going on guard for when Negan returns possibly hoping to take him out at long distance range. (Kent: This sounds accurate to me.)
Cece: Maybe she is going out to find Daryl?
Jess: I’m not sure, but I’m sure there will be tension between Rick and the rest of the group. I don’t think he’s planning to retaliate and I’m sure Michonne wants to because she’s a badass. (Kent: Michonne took that stuff personally seeing Rick and Carl in that position, and a lot of speculation regarding her role moving forward.)
Eric: Not sure…maybe shoot Negan?
Melanie: Find Daryl and kill anyone who gets in her way.
Kristi: Plain and simple. Michonne is going to go kick ass. It’s what she does! (Kent: While I think the vast majority of the viewing audience would love to see her go on a murder rampage like Merle did, wouldn’t she meet the same fate as Merle? She is so outnumbered in basically every aspect in scenario. Yes, Carol took out 3 out of 4 dudes, but that’s a good example, by and large, they travel in groups, except Dwight.)
Bob: Michonne is going to… go hide weapons so they don’t have to give everything up to Negan. (Kent: I hadn’t considered that, and it’s really smart. Storing and hiding weapons and supplies in various locations so that when Negan visits, he sees it and wants half. I like it.)
Brian: Michonne will do what Rick tells her to. She is a soldier in the terrorist group that Rick currently leads. She is planning to strike terror and fight against the community that was surviving and thriving until Rick and the gang started randomly killing their members. (Kent: I am curious how this plays out, in that we know Rick is going to publicly tell Alexandria that they work for Negan, we’ve seen the preview. Who will stay in line as a good soldier, and who will perceive Rick’s actions as weak and perhaps rebel? Let’s face it, somebody is going to rebel against this, but who? Once again, this should have been a question.)
Kent: I’m kinda surprised that nobody chose this route, but to me, I interpreted it as Michonne knows that she is terrible with a gun, and if she is to survive in a war against the survivors, she will need to potentially use long range combat instead of her true skill, which is close range. Knowing that Rick is there watching, he wouldn’t just let her go on her own to do recon, I don’t think. If anybody is going to do recon, I would guess Jesus since he’s a slippery dude and can hold his own and is incredibly fast. My guess is that Michonne’s gun skills will end up saving a member of the group within the next 2 seasons.
Bonus Deuce Deuce (2×2=4!)
- Who’s a better right hand man: Milton for The Governor or Dwight for Negan?
Briana: Milton. He knew who he was and he fit his role. Dwight is a coward trying to fit a role he’s not meant for and that makes him a very bad choice for right hand man.
Raylene: Well Milton wasn’t really a right hand man for Governor that was more of Martinez’s role. Milton I don’t think would have been able to handle himself well in combat role. Dwight is able to get more things done for Negan he’s able to kill when it’s needed. Negan has really just made him his bitch I do think Simon if that his name is more of Negan’s right hand man (Kent: Care to poke any more holes in my terrible question? Haha. Merle technically was also a right hand man. I should have worded it better.)
Cece: Dwight for Negan.
Jess: Milton! I don’t think Dwight will continue to be loyal. I see him helping Daryl escape.
Eric: Dwight for Negan
Melanie: Dwight…fear can work wonders on how far you will go. Milton just made a hell of a cup of tea.
Kristi: Milton is way better. Dwight is weak. I don’t believe he is really a right hand man. I’m just waiting for him to turn on Negan. (Kent: I’d go so far as to say that Governor respected Milton in some ways. Does Negan really respect anybody? There is one person that he may, but otherwise, I say no.)
Bob: I have to say Dwight since I had to google Milton.
Brian: Dwight is. Dwight follows with the enthusiasm knowing that his leader will keep him safe and ensure his survival…as long as Dwight remember his place and knows his role.
Kent: I will say Milton. Although he was a coward, he was doing a lot of things that had Woodbury lasted longer, it would have really helped. Remember his conversation with Herschel in the episode where Rick and Governor had the sit down talk. Milton was running scientific experiments, collecting data, which was very important for Gov. Dwight is essentially replaceable in Negan’s eyes I would speculate. I really enjoyed these answers and perspectives. One of my favorite questions so far.
- If you could pick an 80’s sitcom to watch during the apocalypse, what would you choose? Episodes that aired in the 90’s or 70’s would not be accessible.
Briana: I would have picked Quantum Leap except only one season aired in the 80s so if I’m going for something that aired mostly in the 80s, I’m going to say Three’s Company. I feel I would need something light hearted in that situation.
Cece: Facts of Life.
Jess: Mork and Mindy!
Melanie: Small Wonder
Kristi: The Golden Girls!!! I would love to see some Bea and Betty in this! (Kent: Golden Girls was probably my third choice.)
Bob: Happy Days
Kent: I think The Cosby Show is my answer as I would get 6 seasons before it got lousy. I also considered Cheers, Newhart, Family Ties, Charles In Charge, Punky Brewster, Golden Girls, and Mama’s Family. Mama’s Family is awfully tempting. Once again, loving these answers.
- If somebody wanted to torture you by playing a song over and over, what song would absolutely break you?
Briana: Gangnam Style (I don’t even know if I spelled it right) that electronic type stuff irritates me to an unhealthy degree. (Kent: You broke me. It made me incredibly nauseous and anxious. I want to puke and hurt something at the same time. It was overwhelming the senses. I feared this one as soon as I read it. I tried. I made it through twice and then tapped out.
Raylene: Turn down for what or any Taylor Swift garbage (Kent: I enjoyed my time gaming to Turn Down For What on replay for probably close to 90 minutes. As you didn’t give me a specific Taylor Swift song, I didn’t know any of her songs to choose, so I opted not to.)
Cece: Okay, this was hard for me. I love music. But, I can’t stand radio rock past the 90’s. I’m going to go with “Photograph” by Nickelback. (Kent: This applies to you and Jess, I did make it through this for an hour, but it did grate on me and brought me zero joy. I never wanted to sing along. I was happy when the hour was up.)
Jess: Photograph by Nickelback.
Eric: “Life is a highway” (Kent: I was singing along for awhile, but then it got so messed up in my head that by the end, I was botching parts of the song that I knew 40 minutes ago. Aside from that, i felt fine.)
Melanie: “Let it go” (Kent: I guess I would at least enjoy falling asleep to this. I don’t have kids, so this was legitimately the first time hearing the whole song through, followed by 15 more times on repeat. I have been editing this blog to this song, doesn’t really grate on me, but I never want to hear this song ever again. Just making that very clear. The last 5 seconds does kinda piss me off.)
Kristi: End of The World by Skeeter Davis. (Kent: I love this song and thoroughly enjoyed my hour listening to this song. I definitely need to play Fallout 4 this week. Thank you.)
Bob: “Don’t Worry Be Happy” (Kent: This song actually made me nauseous to listen on repeat. I didn’t make it for the full hour. Looking at this list, I never would have guessed this to be a song that I tapped out to.)
Brian: Happy performed by Pharrell (Kent: Nope, couldn’t do it. Too much repetition, and I don’t know how else to describe this feeling, but my body wanted to rip through my skin and pummel this song into submission. Made me very angry. Like Incredible Hulk levels. I kinda expected this result. I have long loathed this song.)
Kent: “Shots” by LMFAO and Lil Jon and no, I didn’t even try. I’m trying to minimize the likelihood of a heart attack. I had also considered Surfin Bird. Although I love it, I feel that this would be so repetitious that I would eventually lose me shit. Back to Easy Street.
- Did Dwight’s sandwich look good to you?
Briana: YUCK!!! Not at all. But I actually thought while watching that Darryl is the best one for that kind of torture bc he eats anything! It’s probably not been his first time eating dog food even!
Raylene: Parts of it did no pickles or mustard and some cheese would have topped that off
Cece: In a zombie apocalypse, hell yeah. Eggs and lettuce, tomato, mustard. Yum. Lol
Jess: I don’t know if it’s the current diet I’m on but that carb loaded bread looked amazing. Hell the Alpo sandwiches looked amazing.
Melanie: No…walker ham is not for me.
Kristi: Dwight’s sandwich looked freaking amazing! I the bread looked awesome and the veggies looked so fresh and delicious!
Bob: Meh, sorta…. I am sure it would be a delicacy in their situation but… Not to me.
Brian: It looked yummy and I would enjoy eating it. Daryl’s needed some garlic and spicy mustard.
Kent: I don’t like tomatoes. If I could have mustard, lettuce, and pickles, I could get behind that, but as it was constructed, nope. I can’t really comment here because we’re just talking about a sandwich.
Finally, I just want to say, obviously there is a lot of turmoil in our country right now. If you’re really worried, maybe take a moment away from Facebook and all of the other paranoid people, and really learn about what the president can and cannot do. We do not live in a dictatorship or under a monarchy. At this point, it is what it is, and to continue the madness on social media does nobody any good. If you or somebody else is truly worried, then take initiative and get involved in your communities to make this place great. Posting pointless meme’s and whining on Facebook does nothing other than add to the toxicity. Maybe if everybody who is offended, saddened, or worried would take me up on this challenge, and try to better your community, you would realize this isn’t such a bad place and even if Trump sucks, if enough people stay positive and work together, this can still be the start of a new thing. What’s done is done, but you don’t have to act out in the ways that so many have been. Remember, lazy people complain about their problems. Proactive people identify a problem and work on a solution. This goes for everything happening, bigotry, racism, sexism, being a moron, bullying, and so on. Think before you speak and stop interrupting one another. Also, stop blaming others for the position that you hold in life. Just because you feel oppressed doesn’t give you the right to oppress others or tell them that their opinion is not valuable just because they haven’t lived your life. Everybody is free to make good and bad decisions. You are only a product of your environment if you allow yourself to be. Act and dress how you wish to be perceived. One’s first impression is often visual, and if you don’t want to be treated in such a manner, don’t act like a jackass. Finally, if you are a member of a so called minority, the worst thing you can do is let the loud mouths represent you because they are making your group look awful. Analyze the issues, see what your side can fix and where you need assistance from the other side. Everything is a two way street, and life is full of compromises. You don’t have to agree, just don’t be an asshole about it, unless it’s about Ghostbusters 2016. The exception to the rule. Sniff you jerks later. Here’s a sweet pic f Carl from the comics, and it feels relevant.
