Seven Signs of the Apocalypse (2009)

I’m pretty freaking psyched on Seven Signs of the Apocalypse.  My brother called me when it was showing on the History channel pretty much ranting and raving because he knew it was right up my alley.  But, somehow I didn’t get the message and I’ve been kicking myself ever since.  As I understand it, they basically go through various ways in which the world could end (i.e. plagues, war, etc).  Sadly, I see no mention of zombies, but I’m sure it’ll still be good.  Here’s what description at Amazon says

Are there real, verifiable connections between the prophecies of the past and what is happening in the world right now? Are the signs of the apocalypse happening before our eyes? For example, the first sign is ”Plagues and Pandemics.” From drug-resistant staph in American hospitals to outbreaks of Ebola in the Third World — are new and deadly plagues the beginning of the end?

From the writings of medieval seers, to the words of today’s most respected scientists, this documentary examines these questions, presenting varying viewpoints from skeptics and ”true believers.” It looks back at ancient prophecies across every culture including the Mayan Calendar, the Chinese I Ching and the Bible, breaking apart the origin of these signs and looking for connections in our modern world.

Yes please!

News: ‘Web-bot project’ predicts 2012 apocalypse

Well, computers are always right.  So, it looks like we’ve got a firm date for the last days.  Some folks credit this little bot with predicting 911.  Something tells me that if you announce that some sort of apocalypse is going to happen on December, 2012, that interested parties are going to do their best to make it happen.  Way to go, web-bot, ya jerk!

Trailer – Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse

Woah woah woah.  Is this for real or a gag?  Don’t get me wrong, I freaking love apocalypse movies of every size and shape.  But, comedy apocalypse?  Yes please.  I’ll take an extra helping if you got it.  I’m starting to wonder if 2009 is primed to be the apocalypse movie’s second golden age.  In the 80s we had a real bumper crop of PA (thank you very much Ronald Reagan) and apparently shitty economic times have the same result?  Hay, if being broke is the price I have to pay to get Seth Rogen in a post-apocalyptic movie.  I’ll take it.
