chronicle of a def foretold

December 21, 2012


So uh...the world was supposed to end today?  Probably didn't?

Man, that apocalyptic shit gets tired.  Most of y'all are probably too young to remember everybody freaking out that the world was gonna end on January 1st, 1000.

I read that the Mayan calendar ended on that date because it was carved on a temple.  And they ran out of room and were all, 'Well we ain't building another temple.  My hand fucking hurts.  2012, that's like hundreds of years from now, that's enough, let's go get a beer.'

Anyways.  The final instalment of Best Joints of 2012.  Hosted by Orson Welles.
