I love a good ending.



I found this great site called Motion Abbey that calls itself "a filter videoblog of aggregated content now playing around the internet (i.e. stuff that we like)."

During lunch today I watched an hour-long BBC pseudo-documentary about possible end of the world scenarios. It followed one man's attempt to get from London to New York on the day that his particle accelerator would be turned on despite protesters that claim the machine might cause an end of world event.

Well, a funny thing happens on the way to world destruction... in Groundhog Day fashion, each new day starts with a possible end of the world scenario, when the shit really hits the fan, the day starts over again.

If you have an hour to kill, check it out.

I'm actually pretty obsessed with the end of the world. Right now I'm reading the Pocket Guide to the Apocolypse. It's a look at the last and possibly most controversial part of the bible, the Book of Revelation. (Sorry, Job, it's true.) It's actually more about the nuts who take it literally. I'm looking at you 700 Club.

I highly recommend both. Especially if, like me, you're interested in not only the beginning of the end, the middle and end of the end.

... or as Robin Williams said on TV last night. It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from there.

Nah, I would say the end of the world is Orlando. Or really, anything Cramer does. Kill me now....please. Sweet death, where art thou.
