Wednesday, August 14, 2002 [descartes' theory about the pineal gland] -- René Descartes thought that the pineal gland is the part of the body with which the soul is most immediately associated. Several prominent historians (such as Soury, Thorndike and Sherrington) have claimed that this idea was not very original. We re-examine the evidence and conclude that their assessment was wrong. We pay special attention to the thesis about the pineal gland which Jean Cousin defended in January, 1641. Favorite line: Aristotle was therefore mistaken when he located the common sense in the heart, the Arabs were mistaken when they located it in the anterior part of the brain, and the Metoposcopists were mistaken when they located it in the forehead and its wrinkles.
Wednesday, August 14, 2002 [the pineal gland] -- The pineal gland was called the "third eye" by ancient people. It was thought to have mystical powers. This may be why the French philosopher Descartes decided that the pineal gland was the seat of the human soul, the location of what we call the mind. The pineal does contain a complete map of the visual field of the eyes, and it plays several significant roles in human functioning.
Wednesday, August 14, 2002 [unrealistic expectations] -- after reading a million of his comments on wilwheaton.net, i finally clicked over to his website. how funny, then, that, under LAST 5 URLS, there's ww.net and, amazingly, anti-heroart. guess i'll be haunting here, too.

Tuesday, July 30, 2002 [andy goldsworthy] -- I take the opportunities each day offers: if it is snowing, I work with snow, at leaf-fall it will be with leaves; a blown-over tree becomes a source of twigs and branches.

Before long, however, he discovers there are many aspects to his attic that he had previously overlooked. He explores old trunks, spilling over with tchachkes, gimcracks and other proverbial objects implying quaint clutter. He breathes in what, at first, seemed to him to be the musty smell of dead things, but which he now realizes is the rich aroma of history. Eventually, he dies of starvation. Lesson: Do not get locked in an attic.

Basic Principles: To destroy Truth wherever it may be. To actively encourage young people to go to university and fall in love. To alert people of the dangers of thinking seriously. To actively defend the mainstream political and socio-economic institutions of Australia which have done so much to obliterate human consciousness. To uphold the concepts and values espoused by all the mainstream religions, including faith, prayer, meditation and compassion. To encourage men and women to support the ideals of the feminist movement. To propagate the idea that everything is uncertain.

Born in the Datta family of Calcutta, the youthful Vivekananda embraced the agnostic philosophies of the Western mind along with the worship of science. At the same time, vehement in his desire to know the truth about God, he questioned people of holy reputation, asking them if they had seen God.

Tuesday, June 18, 2002 [SENTENCE] -- ralph robert moore's website. my fav part of the FAQ: I always use nicotine while I write, and when I'm writing in the evenings, some alcohol, and on the weekends, caffeine.

At the end of the evening I had five pages, heavily crossed-through and written over, meticulously describing someone's hairstyle. It gave me a good laugh the next day, but it was otherwise worthless.

Friday, April 12, 2002 [found art] -- at the royal journal.
Friday, April 12, 2002 [pascal's wagering] -- very amusing article. Banned from the casinos, Blaise rolled up huge debts with illegal existentialists, who set arbitrary odds and paid off arguments on a whim. After losing three times in a week to the idea that all of human consciousness is the precocious hallucination of a disembodied llama brain in a mad sorcerer’s laboratory, Blaise began to despair, and I knew I had to help him.

Saturday, April 6, 2002 [review of The Quiet Earth] -- Although Murphy also allows his typically idiosyncratic pretensions to intrude, his own peculiar variations on that rough-hewn sense of giggly-embarrassed yobbo anti-authoritarianism we call Kiwi humour, with Lawrence in a slip ranting at cardboard figures and blasting up Christ in a church and yelling “Now I’m God.” [Actually, he whispers it.]

Tuesday, April 2, 2002 [the mad revisionist] -- tries to prove that the moon does not exist. [how do you really know what you’re looking at?

Friday, March 29, 2002 [weblog color wheel] -- You're brown, a credible, stable color that's reminiscent of fine wood, rich leather, and wistful melancholy. Most likely, you're a logical, practical person ruled more by your head than your heart. With your inquisitive mind and insatiable curiosity, you're probably a great problem solver. And you always gather all of the facts before coming to a timely, informed decision. Easily intrigued, you're constantly finding new ways to challenge your mind, whether it's by reading the newspaper, playing a trivia game, or composing a piece of music. Brown is an impartial, neutral color, which means you tend to see the difference between fact and opinion easily and are open to many points of view. Trustworthy and steady, you really are a brown at heart.
Friday, March 29, 2002 [blogdexed] -- i will soon be crawled.
Friday, March 29, 2002 [glen david andrews] -- trombonist and singer who led up the jackson square street jazz band when josh and i were in new orleans this past week. [ah, sigh, i miss it there.]

Oh sure, Rick's not interested in seeing her again, but that doesn't matter. He has to. She's got dirt on him. Elsewhere, Faux-licity decides to deviate from the original Kiefer-mandated procedure and do the Dance of the Seven Veils for TakeOnKief the Baptist. He's dead. She's in custody. Kiefer is in hot water for having thought of the plan in the first place. Just wait until he finds out that the Safe House has been penetrated and no one bothered to tell him. Theo gives Palmer the tape which inkriminates Kreepy Karl. Nina is growing bangs.

Friday, March 22, 2002 [robert bly] -- Interviewer: Could you talk about your earliest connections to poetry? Robert Bly: A beautiful high school teacher interested me in poetry. I think I wrote a poem for her saying that Tojo was a bad person. In the Navy I met the first person I'd known who actually wrote poetry, a man named Eisy Eisenstein. We conspired to flunk out of the radar program on the grounds that we were poets who couldn't be bothered with science. We didn't succeed. Once out of the Navy, I entered St. Olaf College, which is an old Norwegian Lutheran hangout–a Bly was a dean there. My freshman English teacher, to my amazement, excused me from freshman English when I turned in my first piece. That was a generous move; I joined an upperclassmen creative writing group. A woman my age wrote poetry; I fell in love with her, and I wrote a poem to her. I had the strangest sensation. I felt something in the poem I hadn't intended to put there. It was as if "someone else was with me."

Read individually, they reveal the deep emotions of people in the midst of a unique -- and terrible -- experience.

Friday, March 15, 2002 [booklend] -- a by mail library. [i think they say something like "it's like your local library but less convienient."] it's all free -- they send you the book you want, and even send you return postage for you to send it back at your leisure.

Tuesday, March 12, 2002 [the book of questions] -- What is the worst psychological torture you can imagine suffering? If, during the next month, you could have the power to hear your partner's every thought when you made love, would you want to? At what point is love so strong it is unhealthy? Would it disturb you much if, upon your death, your body were simply thrown into the woods and left to rot? [etc]
Tuesday, March 12, 2002 [the book of not] -- An Insight Into the Method of the Madness
Sunday, March 10, 2002 [bilingual link-DJing] -- linked me, so i went to look. i can't read german, but after staring at it for awhile, i found i could get the gist of things. it's good over there, so check it out.
Saturday, March 9, 2002 [seeds of simplicity] -- Voluntary simplicity is "the examined life." It is looking closely at our lives and asking if they are going in the directions that we choose. It's asking, "What's important?" When we begin to examine our lives, we see that things are often out of control, with depression, illness, and violence sky high. Further, the environment is in dire shape. fix it.
Saturday, March 9, 2002 [heroes and heroines of the month] -- a nice list of good people. including ed gorey, douglas adams, al yankovic, and of course, ghandi.
Saturday, March 9, 2002 [giraffe manor] -- oh, cool. i want to go have brunch with the giraffes.

Saturday, March 9, 2002 [project unicorn] -- and josh exposes me to another something new. We use(d) the name of a mythological animal to name a probably never-ending project, that's exploring the (mostly) unrecognized myths throughout the history of mankind. Most of them were, at one time or another, considered to be supreme knowledge - even absolute wisdom, by some.
Here you will find some of the greatest Philosophers this world has ever known. They have been 'warning' us about the 'virtual reality' mankind has been living in all along, thousands of years before that term became popular and computers were invented.
Saturday, March 9, 2002 [repoland] -- bill shields. This is my work, my words, the years slamming the lines down hard as concrete hitting the pillow. this is some gruesome stuff, but it'll hit you hard. josh read me stuff last night, and now i'm cringing at the screen in my own time.
Friday, March 8, 2002 [the tao te ching [adapted]] -- So, the Master gets shit done with moving a muscle
and signifies without saying a word.

When things fall apart, he stays cool.

He does his work without expecting any favors.
When the job's finished, he moves on to the next job.
That's why his work is so damn good.
Friday, March 8, 2002 [samvega] -- Samvega was what the young Prince Siddhartha felt on his first exposure to aging, illness, and death. It's a hard word to translate because it covers such a complex range -- at least three clusters of feelings at once: the oppressive sense of shock, dismay, and alienation that come with realizing the futility and meaninglessness of life as it's normally lived; a chastening sense of our own complacency and foolishness in having let ourselves live so blindly; and an anxious sense of urgency in trying to find a way out of the meaningless cycle.
Friday, March 8, 2002 [whitney biennial] -- those little squares are cute!
Friday, March 8, 2002 [20 urban photos by boogie] -- really nice. i like the layout, too.

Friday, March 8, 2002 [sunshine&fog blog] -- signed the gb, so i went a-lookin', and i read it all up. she's reading neitzsche right now and she's thinking about doing good deeds. i say it doesn't take much to make people smile -- just make sure they know you appreciate them.

Friday, March 8, 2002 [review of TMWWT at rotten tomatoes] -- with interview with the coen bros.
Friday, March 8, 2002 [james m. cain] -- in his book Double Indeminity, there's a character named Phyllis Nirdlinger. The Man Who Wasn't There obviously draws from Cain's works as well as Camus'. [Cain's novels were written in the economical but highly effective style. He generally preferred a first-person narrator, avoided moralizing, and his characters were often self-destructive, or used by women if they were male. In his own life Cain had troubles to pay the bills and his divorces cost much money. Love was for the author a doomed affair from the beginning. In France Cain was regarded as one of the most important American writers. The Postman Always Rings Twice was the inspiration for The Outsider by Albert Camus.]
Friday, March 8, 2002 [the man who wasn't there] -- official movie site. this movie was incredible, and josh and i have decided that it has striking similarities to camus' the stranger. see it if you get the chance.

Tuesday, March 5, 2002 [eyestorm] -- Georges Rousse's installations are impossible and perplexing visual conundrums. Armed only with simple building materials and the laws of perspective, Rousse creates strange optical puzzles which defy the eye to work out what is going on. these are really amazing. check 'em out. [have you ever noticed how expensive prints are?!]
Sunday, March 3, 2002 [cigar box animals] -- these are awesome. Where you and I see just an ordinary cigar box, in Martin Graber's creative mind it becomes a lion, an elephant or a tiger. In fact, to date he has fashioned a menagerie of imaginative animals by recycling discarded cigar boxes. check out the hyena [of course], and the giraffe, and that cool kangaroo.
Sunday, March 3, 2002 [hyena images @ google] -- some really amazing pictures show up on this search.
Saturday, March 2, 2002 [nokomis] -- she was nice enough to link my site [for the books-a-minute link], so i'm returning the favor. [and hey, she reads nin and nabokov, so hell, i think she's cool. plus, she links sluggy.]
Saturday, March 2, 2002 [tennessee facts] -- for instance, did you know that the name tennessee originated from the old Yuchi Indian word, "Tana-see," meaning "The Meeting Place"? i didn't think so.
Friday, March 1, 2002 [hyena information] -- For me, spotted hyenas are a bit like Baba Yaga in Russian folklore -- ugly, frightening, powerful, strangely attractive. And like Baba Yaga, the Wild Old Woman or Hag, they have important things to teach us -- about why mammals become social in the first place, the reasons for male and female dominance in different species, even how sex hormones work. i couldn't've said it better myself.
Friday, March 1, 2002 [jake's origami garden] -- these are amazing. the first thing you see is a hyena, and i've been basically obsessed with this beast for the past three months, so it gave me good vibes.
Friday, March 1, 2002 [Rebirth, The Tibetan Game of Liberation] -- i was reading plep today, and i came across a link to the rebirth game! this strikes me as funny, since i can remember unfolding this game from a book and playing it with my family a few times. i wish it had a picture of the gameboard here, because it was great looking. i remember the last time i played, i used a figurine of a snake as my playing piece.
Friday, March 1, 2002 [rumi translations] -- this site shows the language rumi wrote in as well as the english counterpart. [uh, is that... iranian? my brain doesn't work today.] [addendum: Steven signed my gb and enlightened me. the language rumi wrote in is Farsi (or Persian). thank you, Steven.]

[we even went to ihop afterwards with the intentions of writing -- instead we played w/my camera, but that's alright.] anyway, saul williams stars in it, and he's wonderful. [sorry, words aren't coming today -- not being very poetic. too much on my plate.]

Wednesday, February 27, 2002 [tonight's full monn brightest/biggest of the year] -- b/c it will be closer to Earth than usual.
Wednesday, February 27, 2002 [brian eno's oblique strategies] -- These cards evolved from our separate observations of the principles underlying what we are doing. Sometimes they were recognized in retrospect (intellect catching up with intuition), sometimes they were identified as they were happening, sometimes they were formulated. They can be used as a pack (a set of posibilities being continuously reviewed in the mind) or by drawing a single card from a shuffled pack when a dilemma occurs in a working situation. In this case the card is trusted even if it appropriateness is quite unclear. They are not final, as new ideas will present themselves, and others will become self-evident.
Tuesday, February 26, 2002 [bad religion lyrics] -- Mind over matter it really don't matter / If the street's idle chatter turns your heart-strings to tatters / Flatter hopes don't flatter and soul batter won't congeal to mend / A life that is shattered into shards was it in the cards? / The process of belief is an elixir when you're weak / I must confess, at times I indulge it on the sneak / But generally my outlook's not so bleak (and I'm not meek!)
Tuesday, February 26, 2002 [bad religion] -- josh had me listen to some bad religion today. i'd never really heard any before, and i enjoyed it a lot. he said he was going to burn me a compilation. [as for this site, be sure to go read the essays: The very same day I ran into someone on the street in the town where I live and he recognized me as the singer of Bad Religion. Like the guy who sent me the letter, he too was a punker, but he wasn't angry or judgmental. We talked for a short while and he spoke about how increasingly these days young people in general are hostile to strangers, and don't want to listen to anyone but their own comfortable circle of friends. And about how people seem to be motivated these days by some unseen force to be closed minded. His open desire for opinion, and his focus on relevant issues were refreshing and it made me remember all the great things about the punkers I grew up with and still interact with today: open-minded, inclusive, unpretentious and not presumptuous, and willing to confront the people or institutions that seemed unfair or unjust. Instead of being concerned with establishing an institution within which we could exclude others (which, sadly, is what many punkers really want), we were interested in including people who felt estranged by, or disillusioned with their social surroundings. ]
Tuesday, February 26, 2002 [empty mirror books] -- thanks to denise quicksilver for pointing out this place to me. it's a bookstore that sells stuff from the beat poets [including michael mcclure stuff]. go and buy things. [their links section is good, too.]

Sunday, February 24, 2002 [survivor africa declares tom and lex also 2nd placers] -- [don't bother going to this link -- i've provided the info here.] 'Survivor' Challenge Not Immune to Errors CBS' "Survivor: Africa" was belatedly forced to declare three second-place winners because of an error made during an immunity challenge. Contestants Lex van den Berghe of Santa Cruz, Calif., and Tom Buchanan of Rich Valley, Va., were bumped up in the standings, CBS said. They join the original runner-up, Kim Johnson of Oyster Bay, N.Y., all receiving a second-place prize of $100,000. Ethan Zohn of Lexington, Mass., remains the $1-million top winner. The problem occurred during one of the final immunity challenges, in which contestants were asked to identify which of the female players did not have any body piercings. The producers later discovered there was more than one right answer.

Sunday, February 24, 2002 [man claims mental illness doesn't exist] -- Mental illness, Yoder contends, is a fiction created to "dispose of unwanted people," make psychiatrists feel important and enrich drug makers. He says there is no evidence of a biological basis for the reputed illness, which in fact, he claims, is "based on the worst kind of junk science." Randy Kretchmar, a lawyer for Yoder, said mental illness was "a description of behavior that people don't like in others." Spokesmen for the Illinois Department of Human Services, which operates Chester Mental Health Center, will not comment on Yoder's case but a psychologist who has performed most of Yoder's evaluations, has testified that Yoder suffers from paranoid personality disorder with a delusion that he is being persecuted.

Friday, February 22, 2002 [bouillabaisse for the soul] -- blog by William James Tychonievich. he describes it as a place for Random thoughts, links, site updates, and scribbledehobble. and in my book, if you go around using words like scribbledehobble, then you're worth reading. it also doesn't hurt that this is a very intelligent blog. also, check out his homepage, especially the clever subliminal comics section. [amy -- i found this independently of your blog, but thought it was amusing we both linked it.]

Friday, February 22, 2002 [can studying philosophy cure depression?] -- Psychological interventions and medication had not worked, but through philosophical counselling he realised that it wasn't his depression causing the loss of meaning; it was the other way round. Through philosophical counselling the monk was able to explore and re-evaluate his reasons for being a monk. He decided to leave the monastery and his depression lifted. [also, i don't know if it warms my heart or not to know that there's a book out there called Plato not Prozac!] later in the article: The thought 'My life is no longer meaningful' was accurate and the resultant depression an existential message telling him that he was no longer finding his life meaningful. To cure the depression without changing the world would be to move one step nearer Huxley's 'Brave New World' where the discontented are fed soma to make them happy, whatever their life is really like.
Friday, February 22, 2002 [international house of logorrhea] -- All in all, I have compiled a list of over 13000 English words (at last count, 13,429), ranging from the merely uncommon to the extremely rare, nearly obsolete and just plain nutty!
Friday, February 22, 2002 [the miniature earth] -- very cool. if we could turn the earth population into a small community of 100 people, keeping the same proportions we have nowadys, it would be something like this: [...] 61 asians, 33 christian, 14 can't read, 8 own a computer etcet.

Friday, February 22, 2002 [brother theodore] -- a black humor comedian. [also the voice of the cat in The Last Unicorn, and the voice of the gollum in The Hobbit.] Years later, Theodore would become virtually the only comedian to rage a losing battle against existentialism. While his contemporaries such as Mort Sahl and Lenny Bruce took on politics and sociology, only Theodore made a career out of speaking what was REALLY on peoples' minds: what is the meaning of life, how does one cope with death, and what's behind the beyond.
Friday, February 22, 2002 [last unicorn analysis] -- a book and movie review of The Last Unicorn. . Peter S. Beagle himself has written that the book is sort of "a personal I Ching, which gives me no advice, no handy warnings, but slowly tells me things I had forgotten, or hidden from myself."

Tuesday, February 19, 2002 [segway.com] -- motor vehicles of the future... or, uh, of today. [via mr.joe o] he says to me in email: I have had nightmares about vehicles like these clogging our sidewalks, mowing down innocent children and small pets. It doesn't help that I have an irresistible urge to buy one so I can frighten elderly people. Help me. i agree. [by the by, wasn't there a parody of this called the janeway or something to that effect, where it was a girl instead of a vehicle?]

A truly rich man doesn't have money but rather courage, truth, and an inner glory that transcends the passiveness of our physical beings. That's why I'm going to live in the boonies. (Two years later...)I'm getting the heck out of here and getting my pencil-making job back. Um. But what I said still goes. THE END or Good Omens: Five billion people almost DIE, and it is FUNNY. THE END

I am hoping that this site will serve as a gateway to other informative sites on the internet. I also hope to post writings and other documents realted to the US government. In doing so I am hoping to expose many of the lies that are disseminated through the media and other sources in this country.

Friday, February 15, 2002 [satirewire] -- SatireWire is a fictionalized, satirical publication. Its content should in no way be interpreted as an actual record of events, unless a story specifically states that its contents are an actual recording of events.

Monday, February 11, 2002 [darwin awards] -- in honor of darwin day [which is tomorrow, i know.]
Monday, February 11, 2002 [politically correct fairytales] -- There were once three little pigs. The first little pig built his house out of straw. But the big bad wolf easily knocked it down. Then he ran to the 2nd pig's house which was made out of sticks. But the wolf came there and knocked it down too. Then both pigs ran to the American pig's house which was made out brick. When the wolf came there, the American pig pulled out a gun and blew his stinking head off. Afterwards, both little pigs who lost their houses started building their houses out of straw again. When the American pig asked them why they accused the American of being an "arrogant jerk" and of "acting unilaterally". But they secretly knew the American would always save them, just like he did in WW1 and WW2 so they could afford not to be prepared. The Moral of the Story: Even though Americans are helpful, they're real creeps!

He is a free man, although no judge declared him innocent of the bloody crime. He is a free man because of "misconduct" by the prosecution, a decision that ignores the weight of the evidence in favor of protecting Constitutional rights.
Friday, February 8, 2002 [the book of sand] -- a bizarre little puzzle. you have to put the pages of the book in order, but the pages are infinite. except they're not. uh... The Book of Sand site is a hypertext, with a nonlinear structure and dynamic images. This story is well-suited for such a presentation, since it deals with a supernatural book whose many pages are in no discernible order. And the story's spare, haunting atmosphere comes through clearly, if not more strongly, when it is read in short, random fragments. But the site is also a puzzle -- because only you, the reader, can decide in what order to view the pages.
Friday, February 8, 2002 [art in the 21st century [PBS]] -- last night i went to sleep watching this episode.

Tuesday, February 5, 2002 [what is shamanism?] -- Unlike other priests or magicians, instead of calling the spirits to our world, the shaman usually goes to the spirits. [...] it was really the 'ecstatic journey' that defined a shaman. The journey takes place in an altered state where the soul travels to the various worlds (usually either an underworld, middle world, or sky world) with the mission of bringing back information (such as the location of the caribou, or the enemy), souls or power.
Tuesday, February 5, 2002 [borndigital] -- Borndigital (www.borndigital.com) consists of hundreds of pages of art, history, book excerpts, and ranting, generated by One Person, over several years, with no specific plan; hence its bizarre layout. Pages link to one another in the Borndigital domain, in somewhat random patterns, but "Shortcuts" is an attempt to index the entire site.

Tuesday, February 5, 2002 [light-tunable plastic magnet] -- ok, what i gather is that there are magnets already that respond to light, but until now there had never been a plastic magnet that did that. you know, i didn't know that there were light-reactive magnets in the first place! i have a very limited knowledge of physics, and so this idea seemed very very weird to me, but after reading the article, it does make more sense. i think the applications of this could be really neat. not that i know how things work in the first place, but this just seems like it could be really handy somewhere.
Tuesday, February 5, 2002 [tit-in] -- there's a public act of civil disobedience going on in Austin. the police are trying to ticket women who flash their breasts at mardi gras this year, and a bunch of people are protesting it. good for them! i've always thought it was dumb that women can't take off their shirts any ol' time they want, personally.

Monday, February 4, 2002 [sesame street is changing its format] -- the target age is lower now [2yr olds and me], so they're sticking the "street story" into one 10min segment instead of interspersed. and there's a new ernie segmet that's like elmo's world [which i don't like much], but seeing how it's ernie, it might be ok.
Sunday, February 3, 2002 [system of a down] -- i use live365 to listen to music on the web at work all day, and today, for fun, i went searching for a soad channel. lo and behold! there was one. all soad, all the time.

Guided by her friend the mathemagician, she begins a journey through the events which his calculations have predicted and her intuition has foreseen, towards the source of the curious letter. Each instalment contains three puzzles -- usually one riddle, one number problem and one tricky puzzle -- whose answers themselves form an overall puzzle, which can only be solved when the whole of Planetarium has been completed.
Sunday, January 27, 2002 [INCH] -- inst. for naming children humanely. A child's name is the most important label he or she will ever receive. It will stay with the child throughout their whole lives. Parents who choose names poorly create misleading labels for their children. These labels can cause their children to be mocked, stereotyped, or ostracized. Mocked, stereotyped, and ostracized children grow to become demented adults.

Sunday, January 27, 2002 [epictetus's "enchiridion"] -- excerps: If you kiss your child, or your wife, say that you only kiss things which are human, and thus you will not be disturbed if either of them dies. [...] It's not the accident that distresses this person., because it doesn't distress another person; it is the judgment which he makes about it. [...] Be for the most part silent, or speak merely what is necessary, and in few words. [...] Never call yourself a philosopher, nor talk a great deal among the unlearned about theorems, but act conformably to them.

Saturday, January 26, 2002 [webMD gives us a def for Munchausen syndrome] -- source of syndrome: Karl Friedrich Hieronymous, Freiherr von (1720–1797) German soldier. As a retired cavalry officer Münchhausen acquired a reputation as a raconteur of preposterous stories about his adventures as a soldier, hunter, and sportsman. From 1781 to 1783 a collection of such tales was published, with authorship generally attributed to the baron. An English version of the tales was published in 1785 under the title Baron Munchausen's Narrative of His Marvellous Travels and Campaigns in Russia. Only years later in 1824 was it revealed that the author of the English edition was Rudolph Erich Raspe (1737–1794). Other authors used these stories as source material to exaggerate still further or to compose other tall tales of a similar mode. Gradually Münchhausen's name became associated with the amusingly preposterous story or the lie winningly told.

A guy has a crazy notion different from your crazy notion, you pat him on the back and say hey, pal, nice crazy notion, let's go have a beer. America to me should be shouting all the time, a bunch of shouting voices, most of them wrong, some of them nuts, but, please, not just one droning glamorous reasonable voice.

ARTBOMB was the brainchild of acclaimed writer, Warren Ellis, and Internet producer, Peter Aaron Rose. It very may have well come about over drunken conversation, but it seemed like a good idea at the time and we haven't turned back since. Through bribery and blackmail, we were able to convince a number of talented and, obviously, crazy people to join our rag-tag army, including writers Kelly Sue DeConnick and Matt Fraction, and designers Brian Wood and Neil Katz. and when neil gaiman tells me to go look at something, by god i go look.

This figure-8 path that the sun makes in the sky is called the analemma.

You've seen her, though. Maybe you've noticed her in a restaurant, or in the lobby of a hotel. Maybe you passed her on the sidewalk a few months ago. Then again, maybe you have yet to catch a glimpse of her. So what now? You won't meet her via the classifieds or a dating agency, because her kind don't go there. You can't just walk up to her and utter some silly pick-up line, because she'd rightly despise you if you did. Even if you do have the good fortune to meet her at a wedding or a business meeting, you'll be disappointed to find out that she's already with someone else. It would be useless anyway; guys are hitting on girls like her all the time. What's left? You aren't some law-breaking psycho. You can't STALK her. But WE CAN.

Saturday, December 8, 2001 [?] -- Hailing from sunny Transylvania, your first blood-related incident was when you stabbed a servant girl in the face with a pair of scissors for underperforming. Some of the red spray landed on your hands, and as you washed it off, you noticed that it left your skin fresh and young looking. From then on you were convinced that the blood of young girls was the secret to eternal youth.Rather than killing girls outright by stabbing them or slitting their throats, you enjoy torturing them for weeks on end by pricking them with needles or prodding with sharp spikes - all to bathe in their blood. You've killed over six hundred women, all without raising a peep from the authorities.

Friday, December 7, 2001 [winged cats] -- As with the mythical "cabbit" (half-cat-half-rabbit) many would like to believe in winged cats which can fly. There are many authentic cases on file of cats with furry wing-like appendages, and in some cases the ability to move their wings, but as with so many freaks of nature, the reality is medical rather than mystical. I want a winged cat. [more than that, i want a bonafide cabbit, but that's b/c of tenchi influences.]

Friday, November 16, 2001 [sean hopp] -- sean hopp has weird dreams. his artist's statement is as follows: "Like most visual artists, I discovered at an early age that I could communicate with drawings more effectively than with words. Since then, I have expanded on the idea that a complete visual world philosophy is possible through the use of introspection and personal symbols. Emerging from a decade of dark works bordering on horror, my recent paintings focus on the disturbing magic behind the veils of reality, rooted in a warped outcast mythology for absurd and confusing times."

Tuesday, November 6, 2001 [colorgenics quiz] -- mine is: You have always been on the move seeking affectionate, satisfying and harmonious relationships. Your ultimate goal has been the realisation of an intimate union in which there could be love, self-sacrifice and mutual trust. It has often been said that "True love is just around the corner"...and maybe... if you haven't found it as yet - you possibly soon will. You are a fighter and always on the defensive. You always need to be sure that your position is safe and established. When you finally make a decision you will pursue it to the bitter end in spite of all opposition. In spite of all the opposition you are insisting that your goals are realistic...but circumstances are forcing you to compromise...You are not very happy with this situation...but there is little that you can do about it. You have very strict standards...and these you try to apply with everyone who enters your sphere of influence... Whatever has caused the situation...you just don't seem to be able to sustain or maintain relationships as you would wish to. What you really seek is to be able to develop a relationship with someone with whom you can truly share: Love, Serenity, Peace and Quiet. But you are a very demanding person and it is your nature that leads to disquiet and discord...you are like the tide,.. flotsam and jetsam...One minute you experience "highs" and a few moments later "lows". This obviously will introduce discord into any relationship and it is the demanding attitude, the ideal state you desire, is unable to develop. Despite the urge to gratify your natural desires, you impose a considerable self-restraint on your instincts in the belief that this demonstrates your superiority and raises you above the common herd. You are extremely critical of everything that is presently going on around you...and you find it difficult to listen to, or to take advice from anyone. You enjoy the original, the ingenious and the subtle, and you strive to ally yourself with others of similar tastes. You would like to be respected and valued for yourself and this can only be achieved from a close and harmonious relationship.
Friday, November 2, 2001 [chatlog] -- mefi says: 'WHOEVER I LENT MY NORD MODULAR TO /MSG ME ASAP' is an extremely funny fake chat log between the bright stars of the IDM/techno music world.

Lateral thinking is just a way of using everything you have instead of everything you think you should have.
Friday, November 2, 2001 [deocyrbonucleuic hyperdimension] -- "In the same way certain works of literature, art and music can be said to synthesize the sum total of the "human condition", the Deoxyribonucleic Hyperdimension can be said to encompass the sum total of "human expansion."

Sunday, October 14, 2001 [viking name generator] -- my name is Herdís Madbear. (Well, actually, that wouldn't really be your name -- since you're female, your name would be something like "Herdís Björnsdottir". But this is the twenty-first century, and you want to be known for who you are, not for who your father was, right? Right.)
Your Viking Personality: You're a fearsome Viking, but you aren't completely uncivilized. The other Vikings make fun of you for that. You have a thirst for battle, and tend to strike first and think later. You might be able to hold your own on the battlefield, but you're no "berserker".
You would have a very tough time making a long sea voyage in a Viking longboat. You possess some skills which other Vikings respect. You don't have a lot of tact, so it's lucky Vikings never cared much for diplomacy. You sometimes come off as a bit of a snob. Vikings are not snobbish people -- they either like you, or they kill you. Try to be more like a Viking.

Friday, September 7, 2001 [killingthebuddha] -- this entry is particularly interesting. go and read everything on this site, though. it is particularly interesting. ::grin:: From the about section: Why Killing the Buddha?

Friday, September 21, 2001 [justice, not terror] -- i believe in this. go sign this statement for justice, not violence. it is imperitive that we speak out against the possibility of violence against innocent people. don't let the US go to war and become as negligent of value of life as the terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Center buildings.

Friday, September 21, 2001 [Robert McCrum says go to literature for comfort] -- in this Guardian article, McCrum says: Perhaps the greatest meditation on death is to be found in John Donne's Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions. This volume, which contains the famous 'Never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee', also includes the equally memorable 'When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language'. this is a beautiful article. Gaylord mentioned in class Monday that he had been writing poetry, and I thought "hasn't everyone?" and then realized that no, not everyone is writing about the tragedy and healing themselves with words.
Friday, September 21, 2001 [Roger Ebert's memorial idea] -- Let this open space among the towers mark the emptiness in our hearts. But do not make it a sad place. Give it no name. Let people think of it as the green field. Every living thing that is planted there will show faith in the future.

When our hands are clean then maybe we have a right to label our enemies as evil." and Ken Kesey says The individual American is stronger than I thought. James Wood says How do we deal with this as vulnerable human beings? I would hope profound artists look at this and help us grapple with the complexity. read for more.

[i feel really weird about that, btw -- i read misty's site one day last year in the lab b/c the addy came up on the desk computer in lyon, and ever since then... oh, fuck it, i'm not going to worry about it.] anyway, it's completely bizarre to read his livejournal and see Zack's name in print there.

Thursday, September 21, 2000 [page by page] -- i linked books.mirror.org once a long time ago, and i've used it a lot to read up on things. i like this better because it has a lot of novels and stuff that aren't purely academic. [link courtesy of cayla]

Wednesday, September 20, 2000 [Harvest of Sorrow, from Freezerbox] -- There is a book about international terrorism, called Pirates and Emperors, that is now long since out of print and difficult to find. Its small availability is unfortunate, but in truth anyone who understands its title will also understand its point. The title is borrowed from a chapter in St. Augustine's voluminous The City of God. The chapter, which has the rather clunky tagline of "How Unjust Kingdoms are like Robberies," describes an encounter between a captured pirate and the emperor he is brought before to receive judgment. They have a short exchange. "How dare you molest the ocean?" the emperor asks. "How dare you," the pirate replies, "molest the world? I have but one ship and am called a pirate; you have a navy and are styled emperor." This article contains some poignant metaphors, and it is incredibly well-written. go read it, please.

Wednesday, September 20, 2000 [guerrillanews] -- a good place to go for news.
Wednesday, September 20, 2000 [Hard News from Russell Brown] -- this is an article from a New Zealander about what's happening over here. expresses a lot of the same sentiments i have, mainly that America isn't as great as she makes herself out to be. how do we resolve the issue of wanting to come together and realizing we probably deserved the wake-up call?
Wednesday, September 20, 2000 [brother, if you don't mind] -- here is an account from Usman Farman, who worked in building #7. his account also made me tear up.
Wednesday, September 20, 2000 [Leonard Pitts Jr. says] -- this article shows the anger, the resolve, and the unity of the american people. well said.
Wednesday, September 20, 2000 [falwell pisses me off] -- The Rev. Jerry Falwell said gays, feminists, "pagans," and a host of liberal advocacy groups have made "God mad" and must share the blame for the terrorist attacks this week that took the lives of thousands of Americans at the World Trade Center in New York and at the Pentagon outside Washington. can you believe this man?
Wednesday, September 20, 2000 [moby] -- if you haven't read moby's updates yet, now is the time to go and do it. he's kept us updated on his condition, and he says some very good things about the tragedy [mostly the way people are recting to it] that i think people need to hear. i know for me, his account of the whole thing is the first that has made me shed tears. he made it real for me, and i thank him a lot for it, because i was beginning to become detached and analytical. in the beginning i was very upset and as shocked as the rest of the country. it began to wear off, and i'm glad moby has brought it back for me, because we shouldn't be able to stop caring. we need to come together and mourn as a country and as communities, and we need to be able to feel like we are not alone. we need to acknowledge the emotions we feel instead of forcing them into an intellectual pursuit.
Wednesday, September 20, 2000 [world mourns sept 11 tragedy] -- if you needed any more proof of the unity and empathy this world possesses... this would be it. this photo album of pictures the world around is incredible. it shows how much the rest of the world cares about us.

The animal which symbolizes you is ingrown toenail. The color of your soul is midnight. The celebrity you most resemble is hexagon. Your special pain or illness is vanilla . Your most important time of day is Michael. The shape of your life is Brainy Smurf. And the flavor which identifies you most is wee wee. [link courtesy of cayla]

Friday, August 31, 2001 [interview with wil wheaton] -- so, i've been trying to tell you how everything in my life wraps around everything else, right? well, it seems that one theme is neil gaiman, another theme is alice, and another theme is movies, etc. every new thing i come across will, inevitably, have something to do with ten other things that just happen to be a part of my life. that being said, read this: I did a movie for Roger Avary called Mr. Stitch. Roger and I became friends. I don't recall how it came up, but we started talking about comics. I mentioned as a kid I read Batman and Fantastic Four, etc., but the title that really changed the way I looked at comics was Sandman. Somehow Roger and I started talking about Sandman and I told him to write it as a movie and he did. He and Neil Gaiman wrote it together. Roger talked with me about being in the movie as Morpheus. It was like a dream come true. He's the one comic book character, comic book hero, I could play. now go read the rest of the interview.
