These remarks from the numerologically inclined prophet "Word4Dummies" (we assume "rupture" below is a typo, but who knows):
The rupture will be 84 weeks from today on December 20, 2012, that is, a day before the start of the Day of Tribulation on 12/21/2012. You still have 588 days to go. It was 600 days, the day Osama was killed on May 1st, 2011. On April 29, 2009, Obama joked during his 100th day in Office that his next 100 days will be done in 72 days and in the 73rd day, he will rest. Sure enough, July 10, 2009, he was blessed by the Pope and 1260 days later, it will be 12/21/2012.

There you have it, folks. Don't throw away your rapture party-hats -- just put them in storage.

  • 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.'"
