Los Angeles is Burning

Photos: LA Times, NowPublic
Lyrics: Bad Religion

This is not a test
of the emergency broadcast system
When Malibu fires and radio towers
Conspire to dance again
And I cannot believe the Media Mecca
They're only trying to peddle Reality
Catch it on Prime time
Story at nine
The whole world is going insane

When the hills of Los Angeles are burning
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And Los Angeles is Burning
A placard reads "the end of days"
Jacaranda boughs are bending in the haze
More a question than a curse
How could hell be any worse
The flames are stunning
The cameras running
So take warning!

That photo was above the fold in the LA Times yesterday, right below the huge headline "Roberts Confirmed as Supreme Court Justice." It was a nice apocalyptic juxtaposition.

Hi Josh,

You may receive an email similar to this in the next week. But I found your site through a Technorati link and I wanted to make sure I contacted you for our upcoming sneak preview.

We’ve quietly been working on the next release of NowPublic and it is now – finally - in testing. We still have a few seats left in our beta group so if you’re interested in getting an advanced viewing before we launch please let me know.

In the coming weeks I’ll post additional details here but please feel free to contact me in the meantime. My email address is calder(at)nowpublic(dot)com.


Calder Lorenz,
Director, Contributor Relations,
