Armageddon Weekend (2009)

It’s Armageddon Weekend on History Channel. Revelations, Nostradamus, the Dust Bowl of the 30s. They even mentioned 2012 once, briefly. I would have never imagined I’d be seeing a straight block of “The World Is Ending!@!!1” on TV. I should have seen this in my william burroughs/ambient industrial days.

They have an interesting spin on it, but it’s still TV right? They kept showing pictures of Osama bin laden when they were talking about the anti-christ. I think they’ve got that one wrong.

Also there’s no no way a asteroid is going to hit the planet in anything less than 40 years from now, there are a lot of scientists who study the sky. I’m more of an 8-spoked-wheel kind of guy.

The cinch is now that I’m all propagandized, I’m going to be thinking about this all the time. And that is really a drag. “Christians today still wonder and debate- will this world come to an end, and when?”

Apparently “Apocalypse” means unveiling, not… apocalypse.  But I’m opting to still use it because it just sounds a lot better than Armageddon- WHICH is actually just a field in Israel, not an event.  Sad, there’s no name for it.
