JUST 19 SHOPPING DAYS TO OBLIVION














My relentless ego compels me to remind everyone how I was discussing The 2012 Solstice Doom Racket back when José Argüelles and Terence McKenna were the only major players. Now even the mainstream media are not only in on the act, but shrieking like Helen Lovejoy, “Will someone think of the children?” But don’t despair, whatever else might come to pass on December 21st, The Deviants and their ill-gotten cronies will be hosting a party in a pub in Brighton so we can all cease to exist together. Details will be revealed as the plot thickens, but it should not be confused with band’s full-on, no-prisoners rock & roll on show in Lewes on December 14th. (See about three items down.)

“NASA scientists took time on Wednesday (Nov. 28) to soothe 2012 doomsday fears, warning against the dark side of Mayan apocalypse rumors — frightened children and suicidal teens who truly fear the world may come to an end Dec. 21. These fears are based on misinterpretations of the Mayan calendar. On the 21st, the date of the winter solstice, a calendar cycle called the 13th b'ak'tun comes to an end. Although Maya scholars agree that the ancient Maya would not have seen this day as apocalyptic, rumors have spread that a cosmic event may end life on Earth on that day. There is no true issue here," David Morrison, an astrobiologist at NASA Ames Research Center said "This is just a manufactured fantasy. “Unfortunately, Morrison said, the fantasy has real-life consequences. Morrison receives many emails and letters from worried citizens, particularly young people. Some say they can't eat, or are too worried to sleep, others say they're suicidal.”
