The zombie meme and semiotics
It's worrisome. Why does this meme keep cropping up?
In medical drills?
In comic books put out by the CDC
The meme is used to describe random killings.
It is a meme. Clearly.
Zombie movies, zombie games. The yearly zombie walk in many cities
Where has all this come from? And why?
A medical drill should just be a medical drill.
A random killing is just that, a killing. It is not a 'zombie' murder
I understand about sensationalistic promotion. Believe me, I get it.
That said, why not werewolf killings?
Instead of zombie walks, why not ghosts and ghoul hauntings?
Or Frankenstein comics
Or Mr. Freeze ala Batman alerts. Those would go along with all this snowmaggedon nonsense as of late.
Nope it's all about the zombies
New word of the day. Semiotics
1. (Linguistics) the study of signs and symbols, esp the
relations between written or spoken signs and their referents in the
physical world or the world of ideas
And if you missed it go back and listen or relisten to.....
“Supernatural: Magic and Spelling as Mind Control”
Followed up by......
Now what to make of this zombie alert appearing during a trashy broadcast for the uber dumbed down in the US?
