The “Storm Area 51” Dude Loves Slayer


I’ve been largely ignoring this “Storm Area 51” stuff because holy shit who cares. (Yes, I know they released footage of what is reportedly a real-live UFO; it’s not that I don’t think the idea that aliens are real is cool, it’s that I don’t think the U.S. government, foolish though it may be, is keeping secrets in a “top secret” area that is not at all top secret. If there was ever anything at Area 51, I have to imagine it was moved someplace else at least forty years ago.) If you also have been ignoring this ridiculous movement, and somehow can’t glean its intent from its name, the idea is that a bunch of people are going to storm — you guessed it — Area 51, the idea being that the authorities can’t possibly stop them all from getting in. Get it? Got it. Good.

So. This invasion is meant to happen today. More than two million people RSVP’d for the event, although I can’t imagine that many people will actually show up. But one dude who definitely will show up is Matty Roberts, who started this whole thing in the first place, and who, Metal Injection reports, is a Slayer fan, as evidenced by his attire during a recent CNN interview (pic up top, duh):

“Roberts told CNN the whole thing started as a joke to him, but then got very real very quickly.  He’s not kidding. Local officials are taking this very seriously, the small Nevada counties to declare a state of emergency.”

A state of emergency??? Jesus Christ. I mean. Jesus. Fucking. Christ. America just gets sadder by the hour.

Speaking of sad, Slayer are in the midst of their farewell tour. Get your tickets here.
