Friday Fill-In: Apocolyptic Playlist
This week has been interesting. One of the two water mains broke in my town Monday night, causing us to massively conserve water on Tuesday (it’s now fixed). A storm came through on Tuesday, and knocked down tree limbs that took out my power on Wednesday. I have a teen lock-in tonight into tomorrow morning with 14 teens who have read 65 hours or more using the Beneath the Surface theme, and have zombie books on display (see the picture above).
And ever since I awoke on Wednesday to the sounds of chainsaws, I’ve had apocalypse music on the brain. Go braaaaain.
So in honor of all the dysoptia, zombie and horror books we love, I give you the Apocalyptic Playlist. I will be using it for Killer Musical Chairs at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning. Any other songs you can think of, share in the comments.
