Nerd Hall Book Look: Are You Zone Ready??
by Anthony Wetmore (@TheMisterPipes, GhostConch)
Are you definitely a man? Are you not achieving everything you think you could be in life? Do things feel empty and without meaning? Then Tim & Eric’s ZONE THEORY: 7 Easy Steps to Achieve a Perfect Life might be the program you need.
Now available to the public for the very first time, a book of revelations from the world-renowned discomfort comedy duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim has come in a great time of need. With Tim and Eric’s ZONE THEORY™ you will be able to find a meaning and function to your weird aimless life. Through a series of simple exercises, guided meditations and helpful charts and graphs, you too can reach Zone Plane 8, ultimate happiness and complete contentment.
Throughout the soon to be sacred and coveted tome, one will find the usual uncomfortable gross-out visual gags, off-putting product placement, strange nonsense language, wordplay, awkward vagrant models, and what would a Tim and Eric project be without heavy-handed strangely homoerotic dad humor, strange invasive technology, all through the prism of a new way of living. If you have any inkling who these beings are, you’ll get exactly what you’ve come to expect from ‘Awesome Show!’,’Tom Goes To the Mayor’ and more recently ‘Bedtime Stories’.
Taking on themes they’ve approached endlessly and repackaging it in the book medium with a new twist is something I’m surprised they haven’t done before. The obvious broad and then more subtle jabs at Scientology, faith, and a roundabout self-examination of their own cult-type fan-base all present themselves clearly and beautifully in this full-colored, hardcover roughly 300 page book from Grand Central Publishing.
I am already well on my way in my personal journey to a perfect life (currently riding on Zone Plane 2). I could not recommend this book enough. Do yourself a favor and BUY THIS BOOK. Fan or not, YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR WORTHLESS LIFE. ZONE THEORY™ is here FOR YOU.
