Strike 3 According to Trisha
« on: December 22, 2011, 08:56:52 PM »
I thought I would share this, I realize it is a bit belated.

I was at the November Hubertus shoot and Trisha, somehow, managed to integrate zombies into her rendition of the third strike.

So I was just perusing the internets, and I found this picture, which reminded me of the now increasingly famous Zombie Trisha Third Strike.

Just had to share.

(also, everyone really liked the zombies being thrown into the mix: so it played well with the audience!)

Interesting how the light sabres have a festive Christmas color theme going on.

Thanks Neo for bringing this up....Jeez. I'm not sure how famous this Zombie third strike is, but ok... :)

The zombie thing was something that slipped out, but at least it worked to keep the audience listening...haha

Ok,

I'll ask the question no one else has. :pop:

Could someone explain how the zombies were fit into the third strike?  Don't' remember any zombies in "Paul Reveres Ride".  :cool2:  But I'm sure it was brilliant extemporaneous improvisation.  ^:)^

But like smurfs and unicorns, not quite sure where they would fit in the story.  :pop: :pop:

But a little artistic flair if  it added impact to the story and woke up some sleeping Americans is a good thing.

We've actually had members from our Local Zombie Hunters Club attend events here. So it would resonate with them.

Well, in today's world, who (in their right mind) would stand up straight and tall and walk (march) slowly towards a group of men with loaded guns?

Sort of looks/sounds/smells like zombies to me.  Think about the zombie movies.  The only difference is the zombies can't help walking towards the guns that shoot them and the folks back then did it on purpose.

How would you feel in a similar situation if you (and/or your friends) shot some of them and the rest just kept walking forwards as you continued to drop them?  At the time yhou might wonder what was wrong with them (to just keeping walking towards death).

Back then it was the way it was done.  Nothing out of the ordinary.

Sorry for the late reply on this.

Well, Trisha was talking about how many people could YOU get to grab a rifle and come to the defense of Liberty, the 14,000 call up, etc.  The attendees and all had been joking about zombies during lunch.

So naturally, with waning attention spans, Trisha then remarked something to the affect of: 'If the zombies were to come... how many people could YOU get to come with you?!?!'

That perked people up.  I think there was a second sentence on zombies, unsure. 

But it is important to note that because of bad weather, we had to shoot when we could which resulted in combining strikes 2+3.  So Trisha wasn't boring people, she simply had a lot of information to pass along.

But it was definitely a 'first' for me and Appleseed to hear zombies come up.  To her credit, it played GREAT and everyone perked up and laughed.

EXCELLENT video Joe!  This should be screened at EVERY Appleseed.  7th step?!

So Joe: the big question now is which patch to award to everyone there?

I think Trisha gets the first Zombie Patch in recognition of her efforts to reach out and be more inclusive of the recently deceased and reanimated demographics.

Joe and Neo this is awesome. Who would've guessed that mentioning zombies in a strike would result in a whole family going out shooting at some zombies and a patch?!

Glad to know I can inspire someone.... ;)

Your always an inspiration ! Good work  O0

That reference to zombies is pretty slick. Not the first time I've heard it used before, but always a good one.

By the way, I've been a member of the Zombie Squad myself, back a few years ago. (For those that didn't know, that's the proper term for the zombie hunters forum.)

Good job using it. You got their attention, and you brought the strike to modern life, in a harmless way. I mean, who could be offended by people fighting zombies?
They have men amongst them who know very well what they are about, having been employed as Rangers against the Indians and Canadians and this country being much covered with wood, and hilly, is very advantageous for their method of fighting. . . . ".  Lord Percy

Possibly the zombies...on their forum?  Anybody think to check?
They do have their own cable series...so would observe that, vs. Project Appleseed, zombies are ahead on points - and audience...
