Remember that time the whole wide world was supposed to end on December 21, 2012? Good job, Mayans! And I do sincerely mean good job in the best good jobbing sense. After all, there's nothing quite like a panicked populace going wacky with hysteria, as proven by the late great Y2Kraze. But where were you when the world was predestined to be doomed? Personally I really don't care, I was just being polite in asking, but can you imagine going out like Spike Jonze, all made up in trans-geriatric make up as "Gloria", while filming pranks in a grocery store parking lot? Ha! What a way that would be to present yourself to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. Anyway, the world did not end, Spike went on to finish Her, and don't forget to stick around for the credits if you want to spy Gloria in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa when it opens this week. Happy Birthday, Spike!
