I placed my GF order at 11:57pm on 9/28/15–three minutes to midnight–likely making mine the last order on Day 5. I happened to be reminded of this while running the sound board for a Tricky Pixie concert a couple of months ago where they performed SJ Tucker’s song that I’d always thought of as “Three Minutes To Midnight.” The set list had it listed as 1157, though, which led me to its actual title, “11:57 ('Til It’s Over)”. I thought it was an interesting coincidence since I’d recently looked up my order date/time.
Sooj writes (http://sjtucker.com/1157-til-its-over/) that she was inspired to write the song after a nightmare about nuclear war that she was reminded about by a discussion of the Doomsday Clock (http://thebulletin.org/sites/default/files/Final%202017%20Clock%20Statement.pdf). At the time the clock was set to 3 minutes 'til midnight. As of January 2017, the clock now stands at 11:57:30.
Doomsday, Lasers, Creativity overcoming Doomsday… it all fits together somehow.
And now that I’ve gotten the Email, I wanted to share the song with y’all, performed by Tricky Pixie (though not the concert I was at):
