Still alive! AQP54 digs into new music from Run The Jewels, Nine Inch Nails, Phish and Pearl Jam, with a send-off to Bill Withers and the sad discovery that Joe Exotic doesn't write or sing his own songs. Also, a review of the new Louis CK special. But first, an exploration of armageddon fetishization. People have been obsessed by the idea of civilization ending for a very, very long time - long before Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck landed on a stupid asteroid. From the end date of the Mayan calendar to the Epic of Gilgamesh, from the Genesis flood to the Book of Revelation, all the way up through silly nonsense like The Day After Tomorrow and The Walking Dead, the end of life as we know it has always been a fixture in cultures around the world. Except that's not what it really looks like at all.
