In Case of Rapture, Defamer's Inbox Will Be EmptyS

We get a lot of mail every day at Defamer HQ, some utterly essential, some a little more on the expendable side. But on a day packed with layoffs, Grammy Hell, Hamlin/Rinna reality shows, Paris Hilton's slimy bologna, remake overload, pseudo Doomsday Babies and strip-joint fires, it seems natural — and more than a little spooky — that the Defamer mailbag tested positive for unusually high levels of armageddon. After the jump, join us in winding down Apocalypse Watch '08 with a run through the apocalyptic subject lines that were, and in mourning the vibrant pop culture that was.
