Rapture, promised for 21 May 2011, did not materialise. Again.
I was wondering why Blondie's Rapture was all over the internet. Until, listening to the evening news, I heard about that poor old sod Harold Camping thanks to whose inspirational prophecy the world got a good occasion to celebrate the glorious weekend.
Over the Rapture weekend, by coincidence or not, Debbie Harry was featured as a guest on the Desert Island Discs programme on Radio 4 and chose Dostoyevsky to take to the island – because he wrote long novels. The very strict presenter reminded her that a title has to bo chosen. Debbie, bless her, only hesitated for a second – and chose War and Peace, also synonymic with long Russian novels.
Never mind it's by Tolstoy – good choice, Debbie! We still love you.
