If you haven't noticed -  I'm a HUGE Diplo fan and this is one of my favorites. The video doesn't aide my concentration with the writing, so I usually avoid it. But, when I do watch, it makes my LOL.

10 Things to Keep on Hand for a Zombie Apocalypse

Gillian Zane | 11:25 AM | | | 2 Comments
In my book, RUN, the main character Alexis Winter is a "prepper." A prepper is a person who is convinced that there will be some kind of disaster or apocalypse situation that will lead to an "end of the world" scenario, or at least a major disruption in the world. These people "prep" by stockpiling food, weapons and supplies that will help them when the disaster hits.

Alexis wasn't exactly prepping for a Zombie Apocalypse, she was on a less paranormal mindset, but her preps did help her in the long run. If you want to prep for a Zombie Apocalypse, here are ten things you should have on hand in case of a zombie apocalypse:


1. Weapons (Knives, ax etc.)

Silent but deadly. Keep that in mind! You want the weapon sharp, silent and with a good handle length to keep those teeth away from you.

2. All terrain vehicle

When you buy your vehicle, think "can this run over zombies?" If the answer is yes, you should get that vehicle. You might think about adding a "cow catcher" to it and maybe adding an exhaust snorkel. Wouldn't want to have your vehicle drowning under zombie guts.

3. Non-perishable food

They goal is to stockpile as much food as possible that will not go bad. Grains, canned goods, MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) that sort of thing.

4. Water purifier

You'll dehydrate fast on the RUN from zombies. Have a water purifier ready and a few gallons of water.

5. Bug-out location

Your home might not be an optimal location to bug-in and defend against zombies. Go for high fences and moats.

6. Trained canine

Alexis has her trained pup Charlie and he is the perfect zombie detector.

7. Energy bars

You'll need lots of calories and energy to outrun zombies, have a few energy bars on hand in a bug-out bag. You'll need them.

8. Walkie-Talkies

If you hook up with another survivor, hopefully, a hottie like Blake Miller, you'll need to keep in touch. Walkie-Talkies are a must.

9.  First-Aid/Medicine

You don't want to go down because a paper cut got infected, or if you have to do a quick amputation - you'll need the right tools. You should have a first aid kit on hand and your standard medicine.

10. Lighter/Flint

You might find yourself in the dark, no electricity, holed up somewhere, you'll need to light a fire, or at least a candle. You better have a lighter on hand, or better yet, learn how to use a flint or other type of fire starter that won't run out of fuel.


Good luck!

Run Playlist - Another Hit

Gillian Zane | 12:00 PM | | Please comment!

There are some singers/bands that come with a stigma, the actual liking of their music is kept as a "dirty little secret" and Justin Bieber is one of them. I would have never admitted that I actually liked a Bieber song...ever. Because I didn't, never have. I do kind of like that one that is on Just Dance, but obviously it's not that good because I don't remember the title. But, I do have to admit I have a serious hard-on for Skrillex. Serious. I'm the only asshole in a Prius that turns the sound up and puts the windows down to let the dubstep out into the world. Sorry about that. So, when I grabbed the Skrillex/Diplo mystery album I loved a song - and then found out the dude singing was Justin Bieber. Now I like a Justin Bieber song. And it is on the RUN playlist, in fact this is running in the ending credits as RUN comes to a close.

“Where Are Ü Now”
(feat. Justin Bieber)





I need you, that I need you
I need you, that I need you
I need you, you, you, you, you, you
I need you, that I need you
I need you, that I need you
I need you, you, you, you, you, you
You, you, you
I need you the most

I gave you the key when the door wasn’t open, just admit it
See, I gave you faith, turned your doubt into hoping, can’t deny it
Now I’m all alone and my joys turned to moping
Tell me, where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now?
Where are you now that I need you?
Couldn’t find you anywhere
When you broke down I didn’t leave you
I was by your side
So where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now that I need you?

Where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now that I need you?

I gave you attention when nobody else was payin’
I gave you the shirt off my back, what you sayin’, to keep you warm
I showed you the game everybody else was playin’, that’s for sure
And I was on my knees when nobody else was prayin’, oh Lord

Where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now that I need you?

I need you, that I need you
I need you, that I need you
I need you, you, you, you, you, you
Where are you now that I need you?
I need you, that I need you
I need you, that I need you
I need you, you, you, you, you, you
I need you the most

Where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now that I need you?
I need you the most (I need you the most, I need you the most)

Happy #FF Everyone! It's that time again. I feel like a pro now. I hope you had a wonderful memorial day - and guess what I did this week?

I PUBLISHED MY FIRST EVER BOOK. 

*curtsy*

You can check it out if you want, it's about the zombie apocalypse hitting New Orleans and this tough chick named Alexis who has to escape the dead. She runs into an ex-military Alpha boy and they get to survive together...sexy-time ensues. Not for the faint of heart...or the repressed.

Maybe about 50 in my Kindle. 

Thanks for hopping!

From the RUN Playlist...

Gillian Zane | 12:00 PM | | Please comment!


A girl needs music. I need music to survive. I need music to write. My playlist is massive and varied. But, there are a few songs the resonate and identify with what I'm writing. While I was writing RUN, one of the songs that I left on repeat was LOVELIFE by Your New Beloved.

Enjoy.


A song from the RUN by Gillian Zane playlist



 The Lyrics (from youtube.com)

All the time I think of you
Holding on to someone new
Don't make me lose my mind.

I simply refuse to believe it
You're like somebody different
Like a lost bird gliding
Through the tops of the mountains
In search of something
And I can feel your heartbeat
Is it love or drugs yeah?

Remember staying up all weekend?
Didn't eat, didn't sleep yeah
But what's the point when you're breathless?
You said that you would never stop loving me
Well do you lie through your back teeth
To your new beloved?

I'm running away, I'm running away
I'm changing my name
I never want to be seen again
Or heard again.

I'll keep pushing it
To the back of my head
I don't want, I can't deal with it
I am done, I am through with this.
One day we will meet after everything
We will drink and make amends
Raise a toast to your old beloved.
