A Post About a Postman (But Not That Movie)
You have to respect some people's work ethics.
Back when I was a kid in Comfort, I didn't have summer vacations like the other kids did. I worked in my father's repair shop, fixing up the town's cars and motorcycles. (If I remember correctly, there were an unusually high number of Dodge Darts there.) My work was mostly just assistance - only so much a 9-year-old can do - but it helped give me the kind of mentality to get through my 13-hour workdays.
But my father had even higher standards. He once said to me that there are two jobs that he has the utmost respect for: soldiers, and postmen. I understood why he respected soldiers.
But postmen? That through me for a loop at the time.
Now I think I understand.
Now, that wasn't there before. At first, I thought that somebody may have stolen the mail cart. Maybe it was one of those looters, trying to find a way to more easily haul their ill-gotten goods. Or maybe it was one of those even worse looters who wear the orange jumpsuits and carry around those assault rifles.
But then I saw the postman himself.
And I think I understood what my father meant. I didn't have a chance to talk to him; he seemed to be really intent on finishing his rounds. But he was talking about how nothing, not even a zombie outbreak will stop in his responsibilities.
Interestingly, he seemed more worried about someone signing for his delivery (he said something about medicine) than he did about being bitten. I can respect that, although I think he may be a little out of touch with reality. Also, I would hope that if he did get bitten, he'd set aside his work ethics for a bit and tend to himself. (Maybe that medicine he was carrying was Zombrex; I'm not sure.)So I salute you, Mr. Postman-in-the-zombie-infested-plaza. This bud's for you!
The blog ends with the Dead Rising 2 cutscene with Chuck and Carl (below).
- In the blog entitled "A Post About a Postman (But Not That Movie)" Wallace Hertzog is referring to the Kevin Costner box office bomb The Postman.
- Wallace closes the "A Post About a Postman (But Not That Movie)" blog saying, "This bud's for you!". This is a reference to a famous iconic statement in American beer commercials, created by the beer company Budweiser.
- In "A Post About a Postman (But Not That Movie)" Wallace writes "I worked in my father's repair shop, fixing up the town's cars and motorcycles. (If I remember correctly, there were an unusually high number of Dodge Darts there.)" The Dodge Dart is a low priced car built from 1960-1976 in North America.
- Carl's homemade bombs are similar to Dead Rising psychopath Paul Carson's Molotov Cocktail's in Long Haired Punk and Carlito Keyes bombs in Case 2-2: Rescue The Professor. All three psychopaths dropped bombs as Chuck was attempting to pursuing them.
