Come journey below the earth’s surface with me in the latest assignment for The League of Extraordinary Bloggers:
Take a trip to anywhere in pop culturedom. What fictional town, time, or world would you want to visit?
Considering I’ve been watching a lot of The Matrix Trilogy on cable lately, I figure why not go to the most ethnically diverse yet grungiest place IN Earth?
Welcome to Zion!!
Located four kilometers below the surface of the Earth, Zion is an underground celebration of human civilization… hell, it’s the LAST human civilization on Earth, unless you prefer to stay jacked in to “The Grid” (wait, wrong movie!) while immersed in black cocoon juice. After the United Nations attacked machine civilization Zero One with nukes and after Operation Dark Storm, the only answer to “Hey, where’s the party at?” is undoubtedly Zion City.
While there, take a tour of “The Dock”, where such famous ships like The Hammer, The Logos and The Nebuchadnezzar (when it’s not off chasing after The One and crackpot prophecies) refuel.
Or maybe swing by Council Chambers and get you some illogical yet prophetically dependent wisdom from the Zion Council, featuring Cornel (no relation to Kanye) West.
Spend your sleepless nights nestled in the comfort of our two-star living quarters, filled with enough post-apocalyptic decor to give you that authentic “Welp! This is all we have left!” feel!
Whatever you do, don’t listen to this guy!!
Up for some action? Remember that dock from before? Now we need you to defend it against the machines!!! No worries, you can command one of our bitchin’ Robotech-inspired, ripped off from the Aliens movie, later to-be-ripped off by Avatar APU’s!
But after all them bullets, carnage and destruction, what’s left to do next??
Well, that’s easy….
Um… you might wanna carry some extra sticks of deodorant and a can or two of Febreze, however. Not much ventilation down here…
