When the world finally ends, the detritus of humanity’s YouTube files, credit card slips, cellular ringback tones, and forgotten MySpace layouts will gather into a swirling, roaring gyre remixed by Pharrell Williams. Lady Gaga will be there, too, having waited out Armageddon in some gilded green room bathroom with Perez Hilton. And she will become our spirit mother in leopard skin, a Juliet in black jeans and a poker face, and she will tell us, “Just Dance.” And we will rise from the ooze and order more Veuve. Wait, has this already happened? With White Tie Affair and Chester French.
