And All Was Right With the World
Everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?
Friday's the big day! December 21st, 2012. The day we supposedly all die as foretold by ancient Mayan prophecy. Except that it wasn't actually foretold by a prophecy, and we'll all be fine. Well, statistically, some of us won't be fine, but the world as a whole won't end. So says NASA, so say we all. NASA is so confident the world won't end on 12/21/12 that they've already released a video from the future to explain why didn't all die. That takes courage, but it's not like there will be anyone left alive to call them on it if they're wrong.Read More

You might know Julia Gillard as the first female Prime Minister of Australia and leader of the Australian Labor Party. Or you might know her as one of the few world leaders out there who is openly atheist. You might also know her as somebody who can deliver a pretty awesome smackdown. But today, you know her as a lady with a sense of humor, after she recorded this clip for Triple J, a national Australian radio station dedicated those spry young folks. (via Mediaite.)Read More
With the purported 2012 Apocalypse only a mere 18 days away, many folks are more on edge than ever. Russia in particular has its hands full trying to calm the public's anxieties over the Mayan feathered serpent god Kukulkan's return. Facing widespread panic and erratic behavior among the populace, Moscow's Ministry of Emergency Situations has come forward and declared that, no, there will not be a world-ending cataclysm come December 21st. Leaving us to ask, fine, but says who?Read More
Well, folks, it looks like the December 2012 Mayan apocalypse that seemed so far off is gradually bearing down on us. It's just aching to tear our world asunder, or at least that's the case according to ancient hearsay. While some of us are disregarding it as yet another phony Y2K scare, one man in China, Lu Zhenghai, isn't taking chances. Like a latter-day Noah, he built himself an ark of sorts because, apparently, there's going to be a flood.Read More

The Toronto Sun thinks that Seth Rogen thinks so. Aaand, that's really all there is to say about the matter. According to the Sun, Rogen was in a position to find this out when George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg joined a meeting he was in:
George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it. He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ’My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry...Read More
It's official. Columbia Pictures has secured actor Will Smith, director Barry Sonnenfeld, and is in "advanced negotiations" with Tommy Lee Jones: Men in Black 3 is scheduled for a summer 2012 release. In a possible major plot-related give away, Columbia has also announced that they are in talks with Josh Brolin (of No Country for Old Men and Milk) to play a young Agent Kay.
ScreenRant suggests that this means that the movie will heavily feature the training of a new Kay. We have another idea.Read More
