Apocalesque

January 20, 2012

It’s my new word to describe things that make me think about the end of the world, or things that seem akin to such a thing.   Many literature, music, and movies come to mind.  Most notably, Alan Moore’s Watchmen, and Orwell’s 1984, which of course makes me think of David Bowie’s album Diamond Dogs.  Since right now I am sitting here watching Episode III, apocalesque describes Anakin’s turn to the dark side and the destruction of the jedi order, and then it causes me to think about Star Wars in general, what with Death Stars, and tyrannical governments that rule with iron fists, and of course the final book in the series I am currently reading: Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse.  It comes out in March, so I hope I can last that long, since I’m now on the most recent title in the series, Ascension.  I first came up with the use of this word last week, when we were in the throes of an epic cold snap, and it was dark and dismal.  It may still be cold, but not nearly as much as it was, and it’s also nice out, so it does not feel even slightly apocalesque anymore, but my countdown is.  So here is the apocalesque playlist for y’all:

 

1. Last Living Souls- Gorillaz   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA-i4ti2OQI
