Happy Doomsday: Here Are Our Favorite Mayan Memes

Posted By on Fri, Dec 21, 2012 at 9:07 AM

The Mayans couldn't have predicted a better day for the world to end -- not only is it Friday, but it's payday. So if you wasted your whole (last) year on Earth being nicer than naughty, tonight is your night.

What we've noticed from the Earth-ending excitement is that nothing will bring people together like anticipation of an apocalypse. Hotels and restaurants are offering doomsday deals and party animals are organizing massive brouhahas to mark this major day.

But if you are anything like us, then you'll go through today as if there is a tomorrow -- though that's not stopped us from watching end-of-the-world anticipation unfold, especially via Internet memes:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
