I was sitting here today (Sunday afternoon) wondering what I was going to blog about… the thoughts hubby and I are having about moving – again; my frustration level with just about everything; the lovely haze of smoke lingering over and obscuring the mountains and causing havoc with my allergies and asthma? But then I saw a commercial while watching Conan The Barbarian. First off, let me say that I’m a bit of an astronomy, astrology, Mayan calendar enthusiast. Shows, articles, books regarding those subjects will catch my eye and interest. So when this commercial came on touting a group that’s been set up for human survival when the events of 2012 hit, I perked up. It claimed that science has evidence to back up the mythology of what’s to occur in 2012 when the planets align and that there’s a group that will hold a lottery to ensure everyone has an equal chance at surviving the cataclysms. I’m intrigued. Science can back up the stories? Cool! There’s a group called the Institute for Human Continuity setting up safe havens? That’s good to know, not just because it will help out humanity, but lets me know that a story line I’m working on now seems plausible if something like this is already being done. Ooh, and there’s a website. (http://www.instituteforhumancontinuity.org/ ) Research material!
Then I noticed the fine print on the commercial.
“This film is not yet rated.”
Damn. Hollywood got me on that one.
Yep, it’s all subliminal advertising for a movie that’s coming out. ( http://www.whowillsurvive2012.com/ ) & (http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1441959/institute_for_human_continuity_ihc.html?cat=3 )
But that’s all right. The website still provides fodder for my imagination and lets me know I’m on the right track with how I’m thinking the world will end in a new series I’m working on & in my continuing Si’Ludo books. And it’s provided some interesting tidbits on where my characters will come from.
And, yes, Hollywood achieved its goal of piquing my interest for the movie.
Bah, Baaaaa, bah
But even without the IHC I’d go see it. ;)
