Sync or Swim Tsunami: 2012 --> Apocalypse Then?


Sometimes when you pull on a thread, the whole sweater unravels.


I hear some people saying now that the world really did end in 2012 and we are all now living in a malfunctioning simulacrum. 


Internet crazy-talk, am I right?

Well, some new information presented itself--harking back to 2012-- that I have to share with you. I'm not going to say it bolsters this new theory but then again I'm not going to not say it doesn't, either.

Pray for Us Shimmers



Well, we're coming up on awards season. As of yet, I haven't seen the chilling docudrama Annihilation nominated for any major awards. Maybe it shouldn't have been so closely associated with Netflix or maybe it should have just dropped the "dramatization" bit and done a straight documentary. (Or maybe gone a little lighter on the dubsteb sound effects, I don't know).

However, as a based-on-real-events deal Annihilation is one hell of a lot more realistic than Black Hawk Down or Zero Dark Thirty could dream of ever being. But what good is realism when reality itself is constantly being overwritten?

Sync or Swim: The Gyre Ever Widens



As per usual there's more going on out there than I have time to process. I keep trying to chop up these posts into smaller portions but they just keep growing. I'm really harried at the moment, so let me just drop a major deluge of high-grade synchery on you good folks and let you hash it all out while I attend to important business.

Winter is Coming, or There Goes the Sun





Well, it's quite brisk around these parts, my friends. I find it rather invigorating with the sun shining, somewhat less so when it's overcast. And if the trend-lines hold I'll probably have adjusted my opinions rather considerably in a few weeks or so.

All the more so if the Bond-villain schemes spewing out of Harvard University (the time-honored spawning ground of many an aspiring Bond-villain scheme) come to fruition.

Space/Gods: Bennu and the Jets



Lots of activity up in space this week, allegedly. And right on time we have some NASA guy talking about aliens and UFOs, which in turn will be followed by the usual walkbacks and denials. We all know the drill, we've heard it a hundred times before. It's how the NASA nerds get their little jollies.

I mean, I think it's kind of tired but the government doesn't give me tens of billions of dollars to piss away every year, do they?

PseudoScience Friday: Maybe Tomorrow, Maybe Someday




Well, the P.T. Barnum Memorial Permanent Moon Base Roadshow pulled into town again and performed its song and dance for bored reporters. I'm not sure why this old saw was pulled out of the toolbox but it seems to me this act plays to smaller crowds every time it takes the stage.

Guess it's true. You can't fool all of the people all of the time.

Apocalyptic Talking Points: Roko's Basilisk




If the reports are to be believed, a Chinese scientist created the first gene-edited babies and of course they're Twins. Twin girls, to be precise. 

The only people caught off guard by all this are those poor, benighted souls who don't read The Secret Sun. I'm thinking of starting a GoFundMe for them.
