Today, you are a member of… Nada

In 1988 John Carpenter did us a solid, Members, casting pro-wrestling darling Rowdy Roddy Piper in a brilliant alien invasion saga, “They Live.” The premise of this epic is simple: Aliens are using hypno-technology that makes us blind zombie tools of their malicious plan to colonize the earth. Nobody knows the sad state of affairs until a low profile dude named Nada finds a box of sunglasses that open his eyes to the goofy looking, douchebag aliens and their subliminal edicts right in our midst. Enlightened, Nada goes hard core, delivering lines like, “I came here to chew bubble gum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubblegum”. There’s lots of fake John Carpenter alien blood and eventually Nada, our hero, succeeds in destroying the alien mind control ray and flipping the bird majestically as his dying gesture. Talk about glory! This week is your equivalent of getting some new shades and indeed the glory awaits, so best don a psychic strength mullet, a bad additude toward zombie thinking and get rowdy.
