Reality Update
August - 2001

First up webstuff = all sublinks open a new w window.

webgreetings Dear Linear Scholar,

First time here? If so, first thing you need to know is that a Reality Update is something like a monthly status report to MISSION CONTROL and second thing is that I am real glad that you have found you way through the maze to these words and the third thing you need to knowww is that there is no LIVE web cast of the construction of the Big Bong Peace Pipe at the moment due to circumstances beyond my control, circumstances that have nothing to do with computer viruses.

It is wwworth mentioning that the 29th of June 2001 marked the 7th Anniversary of the coming of the idea and, as the calendar ticks us into August, never before has the relegalization of Just Cannabis been more imminent that it is right now, indeed, when I compare the current global political climate -as it relates to Just Cannabis- with how it was when I first had the idea in 1994, I am staggered at just how close we are, especially as one of the most conservative societies on earth- the Swiss- have adopted a Just Cannabis, Just with in the borders of our own country, just for our citizens, Just for Export, not Import approach to Just Cannabis.

So I believe that instead of trying to force the various Governments of the earth to sign the surrender in the War on Drug Users, it makes far more sense  to attempt to get them to sign Joint Enterprise Agreements, create mechanisms specifically designed to maximize the potential of the Industrial, Medicinal, Food, Fuel as well as the responsible recreational components of the Cannabis Plant.

Thing is, wwwhile I am waiting for the Cannabis Law to change in my part of the world, I am about to embark on another content generation mission, a mission, I might add, that - for a change- doesn't feature cannabis as the main metaphor, it's mostly something to do whilst waiting for circumstances to change, as for exactly what is in store, wwwell it's kind of hard to tell, several 'hard ware issues' are yet to be confirmed, not least of which is a new telephone line and power point to plug little qwerty into.

Every year about this time I get ready to once more spring the conspiracy to commit a blatant act of wwworld peace on an unknowwwing world, or to use a vehicular metaphor, every year 'bout this time I try to start the construction engine, how ever, each time in the past, no sooner have I connected the battery cables and gotten the engine started, than the wheels have fallen or similar, usually leaving me stranded in the pits while the race is run, this year I am planning to bump start, or to use a medicinal metaphor...

Imagine you just had a heart attack.
Imagine your heart has just stopped beating for the first time in your life.
Imagine that you are in the middle of the biggest adrenalin rush since you came down the birth canal.
Imagine that your blood has just stopped flowing and you are about to lose consciousness, possibly for the last time.

What are you gunna do?

me, I'm gunna try for a bump start.

gunna make me a fist and hold it over my heart and then faint forwards face second onto the ground, landing fist first.

That's the kind of end of the line - desperation manoeuvre that I will be metaphorically attempting to do when I bump start this content stream.


With fist on sternum and with just the broken down, thrown away and borrowed pieces of the puzzle at my disposal...

And wwwith out too much further ado...

It's time to bbbbegin to construct the new Mobile Head Quarters of the Big Bong from the 1984 model Ford station wagon and the rough sketch below.


Webgreetings webTV User, unfortunately U can't see the webshow, and whilst I believe we should be fixing the problem, not fixing the blame, the simple truth is that webTV can't receive the web cam images yet, let's both hope the dudes at Web TV manage to catch up to the rest of the wwworld real soon ;O)--~


Anywwway, the next major content upload is scheduled for 4.20 PM on Saturday 1st September (Australian Time) in the mean time, maybe I'll see you at this weeks  M.A.P. Activist Chat, in the BBt-PPP Chat Room or maybe in the Hemp Bar.

till next



P.S. the sound you "might be hearing" is a snippet from The Man in the Dark Sedan by Snakefinger and the Residents.

P.S.S Did you hear about the arrest for the cultivation of the Cannabis Plants that were to have been the focus of the 2001 webshow?
