This Is the End Beautiful Friends, This Is the End

It has been an incredibly busy spring semester for yours truly, which means that my PopMatters posting has been much lighter than usual. As of late, my inbox has been filling up with kind reminders from this site’s esteemed editors, nudging me to participate in a variety of summer writing projects. Truly, I have been doing the best that I possibly can to find the appropriate time to write some good stuff for the site.

Then, this morning, May 20, 2011, I realized that my neverending sense of guilt about my lack of writerly participation in the variety of excellent summer PopMatters columns that are planned for publication does not really matter, because the world is ending tomorrow. Therefore, I have decided that the most appropriate Mixed Media entry for what could be the very last Mixed Media entry ever is a clip of Mogwai playing “Mogwai Fear Satan.” I am so glad that I can be with all of you here at the end of all things.  To those of you I won’t see in heaven, I will offer you one consolation: at least you’ll have rock ‘n’ roll.
