Babylon Bye Bye

As the History Channel attempts to convince me every evening through their persistent programming featuring repetitive interpretations of both Nostradamus and the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar—we only have a little less than a year left. Now, I’d prefer to think of December 21, 2012 not so much as the end of the world, but, if anything, the end of the world as we know it. However, I admit my optimistic view of the apocalypse has certainly been colored by being so immersed at a young age into the “hypersigil” that is Grant Morrison’s comic book series, The Invisibles.

With all this in mind, I present to you—archiving much of what we have heard thus far, and then some—a mixtape processed and sequenced for your consumption and best utilized for an automobile stroll or on a Sunday afternoon when cleaning house:
