Being such a buff for all things zombie, I checked the small budget zombie movie Day X.

While it turned out to be just okay if you are into dirt cheap undead flicks with that ugly video feeling and below average acting, the opening anonymous quote rocked my boat:
"We only have two things to worry about: that things will never get back to normal, and that they already have.»
Well color me bleu-blanc-rouge if that is not an acute and astute description of my current feelings as part of the French private sector cattle under the new reign of his Majesty King Sarkozy the First.

Étant un tel fana de tout ce qui a trait aux zombies, j'ai jeté un œil au film de zombie à petit budget Day X.

Alors qu'il s'est avéré être simplement ok si vous êtes attiré par les tout petits films de mort-vivants à l'esthétique vidéo et au jeu d'acteur plus que moyen, la citation anonyme en ouverture n'a pas manqué de m'amuser :
"Deux questions seulement doivent nous inquiéter : que les choses ne reviennent jamais à la normale, et qu'elles le soient déjà redevenues.»
Je veux bien bouffer mon béret basque si ça ne résume pas mes propres sentiments en tant que bétail du secteur privé sous le nouveau règne de sa Majesté Sarkozy Premier.

Everytime I see that photo, I'm torn between laughing or barfing. Talk about being beat with the ugly stick, yikes, cover me eyes.

I'm adding the quote from the movie to my quote collection, it's definitely a keeper. And I'm stealing "well color me bleu-blanc-rouge, etc." from you and will use it at the first opportunity, though it might suffer a bit in my Southern accent. "Well cu-lur me bloo, blonk, rooge, if that ain't a-cute and a-stoot" Whatchasay? Translate well? :P
