|webgreetings Dear Linear Scholar,
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
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
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
Imagine that your blood has just stopped flowing and you are about to lose consciousness,
possibly for the last time.
What are you gunna
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
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
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.
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
Chat Room or maybe in the Hemp Bar.
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?
