Z0mbie/Mayan Ap0calypse Bl0g H0p Bl0w Out ~ P0st 1

Well, it’s 12/21/2012. Are we still here? Yes? Lovely.
* To start off the Z0mbie/Mayan Ap0calypse Bl0g H0p Bl0w Out I’m going to share part of a post I did back in the summer of 2009…
Let me say that I’m a bit of an astronomy, astrology, Mayan calendar enthusiast. Shows, articles, books regarding those subjects will catch my eye and interest. So when this commercial came on touting a group that’s been set up for human survival when the events of 2012 hit, I perked up. It claimed that science has evidence to back up the mythology of what’s to occur in 2012 when the planets align and that there’s a group that will hold a lottery to ensure everyone has an equal chance at surviving the cataclysms. I’m intrigued. Science can back up the stories? Cool! There’s a group called the Institute for Human Continuity setting up safe havens? That’s good to know, not just because it will help out humanity, but lets me know that a story line I’m working on now seems plausible if something like this is already being done. Ooh, and there’s a website. (http://www.instituteforhumancontinuity.org/) Research material!
* Then I noticed the fine print.
* “This film is not yet rated.”
* Damn. Hollywood got me on that one.
* Yep, it’s all subliminal advertising for a movie that’s coming out. (http://www.whowillsurvive2012.com/) & (http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1441959/institute_for_human_continuity_ihc.html?cat=3)
* But that’s alright. The website still provided fodder for my imagination. And, yes, Hollywood achieved its goal of piquing my interest for the movie.
* Bah, Baaaaa, bah…
I can be a good little sheep on occasion. I did eventually see the movie ~ ‘2012’ ~ but my take on it is for a discussion on another day.
