ARTISTS RESPOND TO 2012 PT. 3: TED KENNEDY

Q: So, any plans for 2012?
A: Let's just say I've got a couple reminders set in my phone to buy milk & toilet paper.

Q: You're a bit of a visual obsessive. Have you caught any docs about 2012?
A: It was often touched on in the various doomsday docs I was watching around the millennium. What do you think about 2012?

Q: I really don't know anything about it save for some basic premises. At any rate, do you think it's strange that hollywood produced a  2012 movie? Can you think of other movies about doomsday that aren't alien-related? Why would Hollywood make a 2012 movie?
A: I think the 2012 phenomenon and subsequent film makes sense. Although it seems like they would have made a year 2000 [doomsday film] but I can't remember one. Except maybe for TV. But now that you mention it... no aliens... huh. Well, I think Nic Cage has been in one. I think.

Q: Do --
A: Yes, he was: http://www.debbieschlussel.com/4865/new-nick-cage-doomsday-movie-looks-interesting/

Q: This is not a well written blog.
A: I thought it was a newspaper.

Q: Yeah, but, anyway. You have no belief that the doomsday events of 2012 could occur?
A: None whatsoever.

Q: Is it because you're an atheist?
A: I don't think the 2012'ers necessarily believe in god(s) but my atheism and 2012 skepticism probably come from the same place

Q: Anything else to add?
A: I desperately hope that there is an apocalypse and that I am alive to witness it.
