Today is Judgment Day.

August 29th, 2010 by

According to the movie Terminator 2, today is Judgment Day:

T-800: The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.
Sarah Connor: Skynet fights back.
T-800: Yes. It launches its missiles against the targets in Russia.
John Connor: Why attack Russia? Aren't they our friends now?
T-800: Because Skynet knows the Russian counter-attack will eliminate its enemies over here.

So, today is a day that's already passed where nuclear war was to happen but didn't.

That's worth celebrating.

Terminator 2 is one of the finest action films ever made. Watch it today. And don't forget, there is no fate but what we make.

Here is the original teaser trailer:

And for good measure, here's a video from Bay Area string metal favorites Judgement Day. This video is for their song "Into The Abyss," and it has zombies in it. Enjoy.

(Thanks Dad, for taking me to my first legal Rated R film.)

"Have you heard the news? The dead walk!"

Repeating the opening lines of NoMeansNo's havoc-tastic song "It's Catching Up" -- indeed; the dead walk.

Uh-oh.

Here's why: writer Robert Kirkman is bringing his excellent, wrenching zombie comic book series The Walking Dead to television with the help of Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont.

Most excellent.

The premiere episode is slated to hit on Halloween. Set your recorder.

Better keep on movin'. And with due speed.

Here's the trailer for the series:

And for good measure, here's NoMeansNo's "It's Catching Up."
