http://www.livejournal.com/community/pro_scurvy/ Scurvy for Life . . . a community for . . . Scurvy. ("God Damn I Hate Fruit")
http://www.livejournal.com/community/bikepirates/ BIKE PUNX BIKE PUNX . . . looks like a bicycle revolution. ("If I could bike anyone, it would be William Shatner.")
http://www.livejournal.com/community/dumpsterdiving/ I dig through the garbage! (I read an essay on dumpster diving once.)
http://www.livejournal.com/community/zombie_101/ Zombie Culture and Questions . . . the wave of zombie popularity increases with a book by Max Brooks.
There was this kid in high school that would dive into dumpsters ALL the time, it was hillarious. We used to call him "Dumpsta' Chumpsta'".
I love the "If I could bike anyone, it'd be Shatner." lol, that's so ridiculous.
Somehow, I envision that William Shatner could indeed challenge someone to an urban BMX event . . . and win.
Captain Kirk can do ANYTHING.
George Romero, thank the gods!
Land of the Dead . . . initial reaction?
I hope he strays from any major paragraphs of dialogue where his characters explain a social commentary.
That works with the least effect these days.
I do hope, however, that the zombies are plentiful and quite dangerous.
As much action as he can pack into the film, the better it may be.

I stumbled upon pro_scurvy

If I was 12 and I had a heavy dislike for fruit, I'd so print out all this crap and shove it in my mom and dad's faces.
WTF @ wanting to have scurvy...
Hey, I'm a dumpster diver, garbage picker, scrap-heap scavanger... half of the stuff I own was someone else's trash.
I've read Brooks' book, "Zombie Suvival Guide"... scary shit, if you buy into it...
PS: I joined the dumpster diving community.
The essay that I read in high school was interesting to note.
The man who wrote it detailed the life of a homeless man, which he subjected the self to accomplish in order to write the article.
It detailed the science of picking out acceptable trashed food to eat, and hot spots to pick to find it.
Right now, every college campus is exactly where a homeless person should be. There's great eats out there, since the kids throw away everything.
This community on LJ seems to be more geared toward finding cool chairs and non-edible objects. That's pretty sweet, if one needs to find things to help populate the dwelling.
Yeah, the scurvy site's bizarre. Bleeding gums . . . not a good thing.
