Music for the End of the World

I thought of this song, and then it showed up in a movie I watched, maybe, "Crazy, Stupid Love."  It was first written during another end of the world, 1936, by Cole Porter, and became owned by Frank Sinatra, who probably had the most enduring career/legacy of any singer ever.  Another version was done by Nenah Cherry in 1990.

Meant to be sung once you have the virus.

If you don't think this is the end of the world, then add this to your chereos:

The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is on fire and radiation levels are spiking
Eruption at Indonesian volcano Krakatoa
A chunk of Yellowstone the size of Chicago has been 'pulsing.' Why?

When Krakatoa erupted in 1883(?), it could be heard on the other side of the globe.  Sounded like artillary.

The fine outstanding oldies station is playing religious music this morning.  So, I guess it must be Easter tomorrow.  basically, it sounds like what they do every Sunday morning.

It's ImPOSTible!

Got to the end of doing these surveys and figured I'd try to post before going to bed, and then my ISB made it impossible to post to LJ.  Wheels kept turning for an hour.  An hour.  Did other things.  Gave up.  Woke up again, gave it another try, almost gave up, and, so, eh...  If you want oodles of memes and quizzles to do, then you will find them here and via the tag!  Merry Bearthday!
