Popeye's Meme

I don't know how Karen got Popeye to do this--must be the sweet talk.

Be advised, his relationship with the truth (and reality)is somewhat tenuous. I think they decided to "just be friends".

1. How did you die? I was struck by lightning

2. How long have you been gone? Three years

3. Death age/true age? Eighteen/Twenty-one

4. What do you miss most about being alive? Nothing

5. What, if anything, is cool about being a zombie? Everything about being a zombie is cool, especially the reduced ticket prices at the theater. Tak and I went to see Wall-E this weekend.

6. How did your family react to you coming back? They were so jealous of me thew threw me out of the house.

7. Most humiliating moment as a zombie? When other zombies don't understand my art.

8. Visible signs of zombiism? I am an artist, and my art is performing Bodifications, which are even more radical than piercings or tattoos. I did one on my left rib cage, left calf, and left shoulder. Plus, there's the reason for my nickname.

9. Goals/ambition? To be the greatest zombie artist--and therefore the greatest artist, period--ever

10. "If I were alive today, I would..." Pray for the day I could become a zombie.

I love this Meme, it's hilarious. Though I'm curious, whats a body modification? I'd love to see Wall-E, it looks so cute.

Popeye and Tak seem like they would make good buddies, actually...

I like the fact that he takes being a zombie in a good way. He believes that he can still move on even after death.

Way to go Popeye!!

christina said...

this has nothing to do with the post, but i figured i would leave it here. i personally think that i love this book. although i was really disappointed with phoebes decision. i really wanted her and tommy to be together. i think that daniel needs to write a second book, and change phoebes mind to tommy (:

christina said...

this has nothing to do with the post but i figured i would leave my comment here. i really loved this book, but i was so upset about the ending. i think phoebe should have picked tommy. daniel waters should absolutely write a second book and switch phoebes mind over to tommy (:

i dont think his family was jealous of him being a zombie. I think that his family was shocked, confused and scared that they didnt know what to do. AEveryone has the time that they might have wished they hadnt done it maybe thats how Popeyes family feel now. Who know i think he should try to see his family again.

I think that is soo alsome how you have a positive look at most things that is rare to come by!!

love Jenna

Allison said...

I understand Popeye's goal of individual artistic expression; however, if his body modifications are especially gruesome, that could be detrimental to zombie acceptance as a whole by the general populace.

Tommy Williams said...

Thanks, Allison, for your post. You are right--that is exactly what Popeye wants.

Jiliana said...

Hey Tommy, has popeye seen the wall with all the pictures of us (dif. biotic) on it. if not do you think it would possibly change his outlook on his "life"? I dont think it would, but its worth a try...

Melissa said...

Well believe it or not
Popeye reminds me of Evan Talbot.
Poor guy I miss him so much!!
The first time I found out he died, it made me cry all over the book and plus I am still crying.

All the love, back to you Tommy!!

Tommy, what is Popeye smoking? I think reality isn't even a thing for him, he's in his own little world. High as a hot air ballon he is. Let just hope Tak can keep him in line. And Popeye, no more modifications, you scare me enouph as it is. And that last sence is just making you smile and do so even more. Ohh, and Popeye? Nice job falling on your but when getting out of the "underground", just saying. Sweet, aren't I?
