End of the world
Just in case most of the human race is wiped out on December 21, here are the products worth stocking up on before then.
According to the Mayan calendar the world is going to end on Friday. Fortunately, Chinese inventor Mr Liu Qiyuan has designed apocalypse ‘pods’ to save humanity from disaster.
Everyone bangs on about the horrors of being alone long enough to write a novel. All the solitude, dedication, 5am starts, struggling with writer’s block etc. So perhaps the way forward is writing with someone else – sharing the burden? But we didn’t plan to write a book together, it snuck up on us.
To celebrate the ‘end of the world’, Damian Lazarus – head of record label Crosstown Rebels – is organising a 24-hour festival, called Day Zero. Featuring appearances from a variety of electronic music acts, along with spiritual awareness classes, meetings with Mayan descendents, special ceremonies… and all taking place in an awe-inspiring site in Mexico. I caught up with Damian recently to talk about the Mayans and his forthcoming event.
Call me paranoid, call me a conspiracy theorist, hell, call me Sheila if you want (but only on Thursdays), but a few things have been happening recently that have made me think, maybe the Mayans were right, and the world is going to end in 2012.
