    I have seriously had enough.  I never thought the day would come when I would admit this publically but here we go: I AM OVER THE VALLEY. I’m sure part of it is because I am Canadian and there is just something wrong about it being over 100 degrees, but there is nothing attractive...

  • Fear of the apocalypse and Edan Lepucki’s ‘California’

    July 15, 2014 | 2:07 pm

    Fear of a publishing apocalypse, to be precise. Most of us never would have heard about Edan Lepucki’s debut novel, California, about a post-apocalyptic Golden State, except for a battle between Amazon and book publishers.  Here’s a short version of a long story: California’s...

    Max Brooks, son of the comedian behind “Blazing Saddles” and “The Producers,” is convinced that Jews are uniquely positioned to face a zombie apocalypse. And he’s not joking.

    “Gentiles don’t understand how truly dangerous the world is. Jews do. It’s part of our national culture,”...

    I’m a fan of zombie stories: “Walking Dead,” “Dawn of the Dead,” even the “Resident Evil” film series. And this story from the Miami Herald sounds frighteningly like one of the scenes I’ve seen in any one of those zombie movies and shows. Well, except for the naked part.

    Everyone is familiar with an insurance company refusing to pay a claim. But what do you do when your post-Rapture pet insurance falls through?

    There was a story going around last year about Bart Centre’s Eternal Earth-Bound Pets rescue. In a story that was just too easy for many...

    Talk about a mea culpa: Harold Camping didn’t just say that his end-of-the-world predictions in 2011 was wrong—it was “incorrect and sinful.”

    RNS reports:

    “We have learned the very painful lesson that all of creation is in God’s hands and he will end time in his time, not ours!”...

    Speaking of the end of the world, I’m sitting down to watch National Geographic’s “Doomsday Preppers.” I’m definitely not prepared—for the end of the world or for some of the apocalyptic scenarios I expect to encounter in this show. Supervolcano, anyone?

    Harry Ralston admits the scruffy Jewish intellectual in his neurotic comedy, "The Last Man," opening today in Los Angeles, is "the ultimate worst version of myself."

    After an apocalypse, Alan Gould (David Arnott) thinks he's the last guy on earth, so he's making a video "bible" for...
