What bizarre “End of The World” pieces you bizarrists performing?

I had been working on a Mayan-themed invocation ritual for the End (with Chthuluan overtones!) to share with my friends. Alas, I had to cancel the gig due to real life. Now I'm sad as it a one in a lifetime chance (to really creep out some guests).

Please cheer me up and tell me about your bizarre plans for tomorrow.

There will be another end of the world soon enough. Never under estimate the stupid.

Exactly! RCP, you beat me to it again. . .

On a side note, it's my sobriety birthday (25 years), so I'm gonna celebrate! I'll probably drink a case of NA beer and smoke a pack of electronic cigarettes! Then I'm gonna perform the linking rings for my mom!

Anyone else?

That's cuz somehow all the people who believe it will end tomorrow will, on the following day, realise their belief and prayers and supplications averted the disaster

Been happening for a while

Aren't we lucky Smile

Hmmm....that gives me an idea!!!!!!!!

If we are all here Saturday I might share it

Congratulations Jorey.
I'm surprised I haven't driven you to drink yet, but give it time.

I was down in the Yucatan about a year and a half ago, and most of the Mayan guides were telling people what the calendar was all about... the end of an era, not the end of the earth. It didn't matter... I still heard other tourists talking about coming back for an end of the world event. Sometimes I have to reflect that this same attitude is what also makes it possible for us to fool the general public. A dark circle it is indeed.

My wife (she's Japanese) showed me something funny. It was a Japanese magazine that had "The end of the world!" on the cover and underneath it in the corner, it said "subscribe here for our January New Years issue"

@afinemesh - What a fine thing to celebrate for the 21st.

Last week I was dining with a friend (one who could not come to my invocation ritual to Bring Forth The End). She spent a few months in Belize last year and got to know a modern Mayan. She was telling me of the re-occurring conversation they would have when anyone asked him about the event. He would lean over to her and repeat in a humorous and non-judgemental way "Stupid white people; they won't listen to what we [Maya] say". It was his way of saying "gullible tourists will believe whatever they want to even though they have been told the significance". Sorry I can't express the cadence, tone, and accent of his original statement; it was that that make the story funny.

I will save the Blood Writing practice I did for the next End of the World.

Tonight I gonna perform on a party.
I do two short stageshows, mentalism dealing with time.
It ain't the end of times, it's the end of time.
First a prediction then a b00ktest  proving Bram Stooker is among us.
The second show I do hypnotism, looping in time with Puzz1eP@r@dox.
Off stage I'll do Till de@th do us part, a S@nctum routine, H@unted deck & key, Lun@ and The Re1ic (made of cursed Maya silver).

Congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment!

No End-of-the-World type performance here for me, but I'm itching to use this Kador set for some Fortune-telling with the new era now upon us.

I was very surprised to see the NatGeo channel promoting new episodes of Doomsday Preppers coming in January. Don't they have faith in their product?

I'm still convinced the world can be saved if only my wife would let me get a (real) monkey. Until then, yes, I have end of the world effects in my shows tonight and tomorrow. One is a preduction of how the world will end and the other is Apocalypse Bingo.

Oh well, at least we still have the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse to look forward to.

Bah! Meant "Kadar" - serves me right for posting before the coffee was done brewing. Smile
