Pazcalypse Now

Vinnie Paz is an Italian-American gangsta rapper who converted to Islam and has a fetish for assault weapons and alternative histories of ancient Egypt. Yes, he sounds like a Christopher Guest character, but he's real. "End of Days"--his magnum opus--hits all the sweet spots for the Zeitgeist crowd: the reptilian conspiracies of David Icke, 911 "Truth," chemtrails, and mind-controlling fluoride; and presents some new hypotheses I hadn't heard before: Barack Obama's genesis in a test tube and George W. Bush's ancestral connection to Aleister Crowley. It's unintentionally hilarious, yet I'd be lying to you if I said I didn't enjoy this tremendously.

But could we have found a skeleton on the moon if we never went there? I'm confused!

Props to Block McCloud for his earworm of a chorus.
