If an Asteroid caused the end of the World, this is what it would look (and rock) like.

Awesome, terrible, sad, and profound video. A song to lose the world by: If an Asteroid caused the end of the World, this is what it would look (and rock) like. {Video}

If this were to happen, I think the safest place to live would be in the middle of the Rockies or Himalayas in a deep-underground bunker with a lifetime supply of nachos, fresh water, all my ex-girlfriends, my dog Redford and a girlfriend pooch to keep him company. I’d need a gym, too. And a ton of oil for my generator. And a few good books, since premium cable, Hollywood and the internet would go away—taking with it nytimes.com, google books…and, no, the horror! elephantjournal.com.

With thanks for the tip on this cheery vid to Huffington Post Green, for which I’m writing the occasional barnstormer.

    Depending on the locale of ground zero, Antarctica might actually be safest.

    that's going out with style.

  5. […] We’ve written about what would happen if a meteor hit our fragile planet Earth, before. Watch the video here for a realistic and yet fantastical video. […]

    Damn, I knew I should have shut down my computer 10 minutes ago! how I’m going to dream my way into the “Re-Birth” with visions of burnt-marshmallow-earth.
    But the video really is a frightfully beautiful piece of art.

    on the lighter side, we put up this article today:
