R.I.P. George Romero
I can assure you that I've drunk more alcohol just while watching George Romero movies than most people have consumed in total over their entire lifetimes. I've probably watched Dawn of the Dead over two hundred times by itself, let alone the other masterpieces from a genre invented entirely by the man above. Other than the first few dozen screenings during my formative years as a child and budding teenager (yes, my parents let me watch these movies when I was quite young), all of those instances were accompanied by an alcoholic beverage or two (or seven).
In a sense, I've just lost my biggest, best, and most long-standing drinking buddy.
Raise a glass to an absolute legend.
