Good to know

Apparently the world is going to end in 2011.

No, seriously.

A woman on the train this morning thought that all her fellow passengers should know that the End of Days is due in 2011. We all need to be righteous, cower before the Lord, etc., etc. This said at volumes no normal human (perhaps except me) should be capable of generating, all the while brandishing a tattered bible high above her head like a flaming sword (or crude bludgeoning weapon, depending on your attitude).

Perhaps she was channeling the Man Himself.

Then again, she might be wrong.

Wasn't the End of Days supposed to come in 2000 (or 2001 for those of us who actually know the definition of millennium, at least in the ordinal sense)?

I was forced to ask myself this question. After all, weren't we all promised a visit from Big J and the Doomsday posse then? Did they miss a bus? Take a day off? Forget to check their planners? Maybe the batteries died on their PDAs?

Hell, it's happened to me, so I totally sympathize.

Either way, I suggest we all get our affairs in order 'cause the apocalypse is acomin'.

At least according to another mindless drone in the subway.

Amen and pass the Kool-Aid.

Sonic bible verses:

Koordinate Of Wonders - Irreverse
(long awaited follow up to their ancient EP)

Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard Of Ozz
(poppier than you might think)

Nasum - Human 2.0
(not even remotely poppy)

David Bowie - Aladdin Sane
(my favorite cracked actor)

Halo - Massive Corporate Disease
(the heaviest)
